By |2016-11-03T10:21:57+00:00April 7th, 2014|News & Opinions|

Is it possible for a television program to be transcendent? Is it possible for a show to reach a level of perfection that causes all others to pale in comparison and subsequently make all others seem meaningless? Actually, the answer in no. That’s a bit over the top even for [...]

Beneath a Blanket of Stars: Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey: Episode 3

By |2016-11-03T10:22:04+00:00March 25th, 2014|News & Opinions|

It was inevitable I guess. Not content to simply delete several seconds about evolution in the first episode and impossible to ignore evolution in the second, creationists now demand equal time for their arguments.

In an area of Oklahoma the first episode of Cosmos:  A Spacetime Odyssey ran twenty seconds shorter than the rest of the country. What was significant about those twenty seconds?

Like an Amusement Park but with Better Costumes: Denver ComicCon 2013

By |2016-11-03T10:23:09+00:00May 31st, 2013|News & Opinions|

So the second annual Denver Comic Con begins tonight and runs through Sunday, and I could not be more giddy to attend. Seriously, it's all I could talk about for days (maybe weeks). Now I know little ol' Denver's Con is not as big a deal as say, San Diego [...]
