I’m from Oklahoma, too, so I know exactly what you mean. In fact, Elizabeth Warren is ALSO from Oklahoma, so I never batted an eye at her claims.

There are countless families around here (mine included) that have a hint of Native American blood in them but either can’t proof it or don’t have quite enough to qualify for Read more

Working on my scifi TV pilot. It’s an idea I’ve been tossing around in my head for about 10 years, but I decided to try and finally finish it in time for a competition later this month. In a nutshell, it’s about a prison transfer ship stuck in deep space while an intergalactic war is breaking out... and the opposition

It should be called “Assassin’s Creed: We’re Gonna Take a Year Off So The Game’s Not Shit This Time.”

I wrote this article as an April Fool’s joke but as I was writing it, I was like, “Hot damn, this is good stuff!” I pray to the gods everyday that someday soon I’ll be able to write the exact same article but for real this time...

Thank you Charlie Jane, for finding the words that will not come to me today.

I guess I'm missing something. What is the point of the Amiibos anyway? I guess I thought you'd be able to level up your Amiibo on Smash Bros., then bring him over to Mario Party & have some kind of "leveled-up" advantage. I get that they only have a tiny bit of memory, but now they just seem trivial. And Nintendo Read more

All in all, a pretty weak episode; but, as a lifelong resident of Tulsa, the ending did make me squee just a bit. :)

The entire "A Time to..." series, but especially "A Time to Kill" & "A Time to Heal" by David Mack.

Yes! I finally relented a few months ago and decided to see what all the hype was about. I hated it. So. Much. Read more

I will say, as bad as the whole "only two cops in Gotham" thing is, it's nothing compared to Detective Lance on the first season of Arrow. He was assigned EVERY crime, and managed to be the responding officer on most of them. (They remedied that a bit with season two, but seemed to start it up again on the season 3 Read more

I have to add another so-called "rule" to the list: beginning a sentence with a conjunction like "and," "or", or "but."

Yes, we were all taught in school that you should NEVER do it, but it's simply not true. And writers have been doing it for centuries.

I was hired as a content writer for a small internet company a few Read more

I think this is a brilliant approach and, as someone who has limited time to actually play games these days, I find the continuing post-release content is much more helpful in deciding which games I should devote my time to. Reviews are nice, but continuing coverage is even better.

Thank you! This is exactly what I was about to say. I'm a vegetarian so I don't care if my fake meat "bleeds" or not, but it's products like this that will get more meat-eaters onboard, for all of the reasons you just mentioned.

Finally succumbed to the pressure and started reading Stephen King's "The Stand." Yes, 1100 pages was daunting, but it's so damn good I'm flying through it!

With all that said, is it worth watching? Like, for curiosity's sake, or to enjoy the campiness of it all? Or should I consider myself lucky that I missed it & just move on with my life?

Great list. If I could add one more, it would be the "doubles/clones/twins fighting trope where suddenly we can't tell them apart and they each try to convince the protagonist that THEY'RE the real good guy." Read more

You know what? I'm an intelligent guy and a writer myself. I read popular fiction, lofty books about theology, and plenty of "serious" adult stuff like Jonathan Franzen.

But you know what I like reading best?

Star Trek novels.

Why?

Because "fuck you," that's why.

As implausible as this whole scenario sounds, it's possible Marvel could be putting the FF on hiatus for the exact OPPOSITE reason. Read more

I've read some of these tweets and I'm almost positive that Shatner is not writing them himself. I mean, he's an 80-something year old celebrity...would he really be sitting at home every night live-tweeting CW shows? He had ghostwriters for all of his books, too. The whole thing just reeks of PR to me.
