Stuff I’ve Badmouthed Recently: Stalker & Co.
Stuff I've Badmouthed Recently: Stalker & Co.Because I could not ignore this show no matter how much we all wanted to, I have reviewed STALKER at The AV Club. I don’t know if the title is intended to be in allcaps all the time, but it suits the tone of the show, so we’ll leave it. It is pretty much exactly what you would expect, except with more explicit discussion of why a man’s justified in staring at a woman’s chest, which was certainly an unexpected B-plot for a pilot, but there we have it.…
Sleepy Hollow: “This is War”

When not heckling Holly from the audience of whatever panels she’s doing, I hope to be talking about movies, TV, writing as a day job, and whatever else they decide to ask me and/or I can’t stop talking about.…
Live Nude Girls
The list of celebrities who had their pictures stolen numbers over seventy-five. Some of them aren’t even capitalized; not names, really. They’re just folders where the prizes go. Jennifer Lawrence is on the list. Perez Hilton posted those, for those who might otherwise have had trouble finding them fast enough. The question went out quick on its heels: Is her career over?…
