The Stormlight Archive – World of Roshar

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Brandon Sanderson, and I especially love the books of the Cosmere “super-epic” which includes the epic series of Mistborn and the Stormlight Archive (among others). The world-building, characters, and magic systems of these series are nothing less than astounding. But sometimes it’s...

Sanderson on YouTube

Brandon Sanderson (author of Mistborn, Stormlight Archives, and the guy who finished writing The Wheel of Time) is one of my favorite authors. He has his own YouTube channel, and his videos are certainly worth watching if you are a Sanderson fan, a fan of fantasy in general, or an...

Comparison of Various Sci-Fi Ships

Take a look at this video showing size comparisons between some 80 different ships from various sci-fi series — mainly from movies, but also from games and books as well. I was actually surprised to see a few, such as White Base from Gundam, Götterdämmerung from Iron Sky, the Red...

Weird Al’s “We’re All Doomed!”

CNN host Jake Tapper called the first 2020 Presidential Debate “A hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.” And he wasn’t wrong. Personally, I could barely watch the debate, and had to take it in small doses just to get through the highlights. However, the ever-brilliant “Weird...

Animated Thrawn Trilogy Fan Series

Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy stands out as the fan-favorite Star Wars sequel that sadly never was. Up until Disney bought the rights to Star Wars and released Episode VII: The Force Awakens, the Thrawn Trilogy was considered by most fans to be the de facto sequel, and it also marked...

DUNE First Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Dune movie has just been released. Unlike the 1984 movie adaptation by David Lynch, this new adaptation promises to be truer to the book (i.e., no ridiculous voice-powered sonic weapons…). Judging from what I’ve seen in this trailer, it is indeed much truer to...
