Chris Mann’s “My Corona”

This is a real gem of a song — a parody of “My Sharona” called “My Corona” by independent artist Chris Mann. The song highlights the many social inconveniences caused by the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus, with special emphasis on the ridiculous run on toilet paper across the nation.

The Strange Aliens of Abiogenisis

It has often been said that no human being can conceive of creatures that are truly alien to our world and to our experience. That is why so many aliens in science fiction basically just look like humans with prosthetics or, at best, humans in creature suits. That may be...

DIY Vintage PC

Some people (like myself) prefer to modify their PC cases to suit their aesthetic. But for this fellow, that’s small potatoes. Matt of DIY Perks knows how to build a steampunk PC. A real steampunk PC. From scratch. That’s right, using leather, brass pieces from eBay, and a welding torch,...

New “Picard” Series Starts This Week!

“Expanse” Recap by Kevin Smith

This is a hysterical recap of “The Expanse” seasons 1 – 3 (note: “The Expanse” is not a comedy, but Kevin Smith certainly makes it sound funny). Don’t watch this if you haven’t seen the series, as it has spoilers. Or you can watch it anyway if you don’t care...

“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” Final Trailer

The final trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” has just been released. And it’s a doozy! You should keep a close eye out for cool “call-backs” to locations from Return of the Jedi, and I’m pretty sure this also confirms the return of one very evil emperor…
