Farewell DNN

On September 9th, the derby world was shocked to learn the Derby News Network (DNN) was retiring after seven years of fantastic coverage. DNN has been around nearly as long as the current incarnation of roller derby. They’ve seen starting on the pivot line come and go (and recently start to make

Review: Tim And Eric’s Bedtime Stories

Tim and Eric’s brand of humor is definitely an acquired taste.  Whether long form, like Tom Goes To The Mayor, or short-form, like the minute long skits of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job, the situations are always extremely bizarre and absurd.  Taking a turn at the horror genre, Tim and

Review: Red Band Society (Pilot)

Red Band Society is a show I wanted to hate.  I thought the idea was kind of dumb when I originally saw a preview for it.  As more previews aired on tv, I actually became interested in it.  Then, it surprised me, and turned out to be really good. There have been

Celebrate Banned Books Week

It’s Banned Book Week! This is a week to call attention to books that have been banned from libraries. (I’m partially convinced this is an attempt to get kids to read. Afterall, what better way to get a kid to do something than to tell them they can’t.) Everything from To Kill a

It’s Not About U2

Oh internet, how you go in phases. First, it was everyone (myself included) complaining about the U2 album showing up in their iTunes account. Now, it’s everyone complaining about people complaining about the U2 album showing up in their iTunes account. Personally, I’m glad that Apple decided to do this promotion with

Advance Review: This Is Where I Leave You

NOTE: Relatively Spoiler-Free review, touching on plot points shown in the trailer, and some descriptions of a few characters. I don’t know if I didn’t pay close enough attention to the trailers, but going into This Is Where I Leave You, I was expecting a straight up comedy.  I was in no

Shameless Plug: Hipsternima

It’s the Husband’s 30th birthday! An entire day of celebrations and reminding him that it’s all downhill from here. It’s all out of love, I swear. In addition to beer, burgers (Note: I got a bacon cheese burger, he got a wrap. The waitress tried to give me his meal. Teehee.), and
