Attack of the I-CON 31
Stony Brook Press - almost 5 years
Talk about gonzo journalism! In the style of Hunter S. Thompson, I prepared to cover I-CON 31 by fully engrossing myself in the world of nerd culture, and after fifteen some-odd years of reading comic books, playing video games and obsessing over old sci-fi movies, not to mention attending five previous I-CONs, I was ready to write this article. See what I’ll do for you? For those unfamiliar, I-CON stands for Island Convention, and it’s Stony Brook’s very own science fiction and fantasy convention. I usually tell people to picture Comic-Con, except smaller and focused more heavily on classic sci-fi. It’s a magical time: a weekend when, instead of emptying out, Stony Brook fills up with nerds, geeks and teenagers dressed as their favorite anime protagonists. On most days, when I choose to dress up as Green Lantern villain Sinestro, people stare at me funny. At I-CON, people ask me if I’m classic Sinestro or Aaron Diaz’s Sinestro reboot. And it’s that wonderful piece of pure magic that ...

Doctor Who complete reviews: The TV movie - Shadowlocked (blog)

I quite like Daphne Ashbrook's Grace – she's a good foil for The Doctor, and in typical '90s style, isn't your archetypal screaming damsel in distress. She's feisty and independent, a bit aloof and distant, but with a vulnerable core – basically she's

Ambitious new made-for-television movies are very much in evidence this weekend. The networks dabble, as is their wont, in crime and in aliens from outer space. Over on pay cable, Showtime is offering what it chooses to call an erotic drama; an equally apt label would be soft porn. "Cruel Doubt" (which runs for four hours on NBC beginning at 9 P.M.
