I love fashion. We post about it on The Mary Sue often. But in a climate of “fake geek girl” accusations, I take issue with someone in the industry saying women got into geek culture for the “fashion sense.”

hiccups and creepy girls

Started listening to How to Train Your Dragon this week. FANGIRL ALERT: IT IS NARRATED BY DAVID TENNANT! He reads it with his lovely Scottish accent. You can probably get it for free through your public library (that’s how I got it, through Overdrive.)

But, it’s weird because the story is VERY different from the movie. I know I shouldn’t be surprised, I’ve read enough books and seen enough movies…

OMG…GEEBUS, that was the most TENSE I have been watching a TV show in a long time. And there is still one more episode left. And it’s 63 minutes long?!?!

THIS SHOW!

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 

While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.

That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

Bolded for reasons. Stop by your local library today and find out about all the FREE stuff you can get, physically and digitally. (oh, and also, we don’t track your purchases or store your history in our databases…if you like privacy - choose the library.

Sylvia and I are having fun with this months free xbox game Battleblock Theater #games #behemoth #battleblock #xbox

#1 Hannibal gag reels are the best and I am SO happy that Bryan Fuller and Co. release them. 

#2 I loved that Bryan Fuller used C3P0 and R2-D2 as a comparison for Lecter and Graham in Season 3 LOL!!!!!!

Spending far too much time watching these gifs from the Game of Thrones cast drew by the gif booth LOL.

EW Live from Comic-Con 2014 - #EWComicCon

A reminder - all the cool stuff you see being covered on your favorite geek sites - the celebrities, the parties, the exclusives? You have to stand in line 3 hours to get the toy, the actors are so far away you end up watching them on screen anyway, and you are not invited to that party.
