It's been a bit sparse around here this week, I know. With work, my freelance writing, losing an entire night to doing All the Updates and solving All the Problems on mine and hubster's phones, and Nutcracker season kicking back up, I was just caught off guard with how packed my schedule was this week. … Continue reading 5 Fandom Friday: Things I Love About Halloween

You guys, can we talk about Fear the Walking Dead? I soooo want to love this show, but these characters are really making it tough for me to latch on to this story--and this is coming from a girl who loves nearly every zombie thing she interacts with. I want the characters' actions to make … Continue reading The Mary Sue Post: Fear the Walking Dead Ep. 3 Recap
I pushed myself last month to read a novel, a collection of short stories, and a novella to break myself out of a months-long reading slump. While finishing the books took a bit over a month, I read each of them, loved them, and have since waved that pesky reading desert wasteland goodbye. Yesterday, I talked … Continue reading Guest Post by April Genevieve Tucholke: Inspiration for “The Flicker, The Fingers, The Beat, The Sigh”
I'm not going to San Diego Comic Con this year. While I'm still sad that I don't get to go AGAIN, there are enough people that I follow who are going (like one of my faves, The Nerdy Girlie), that I can almost feel like I'm there. In the spirit of that, I wanted to let … Continue reading Nerdist Presents: The Hive at San Diego Comic Con
If you've hung around Distracted Blogger for a while, you'll know that I love horror--both good and bad horror. So when Showtime announced the show Penny Dreadful, I knew I had to check the show out. Of course, I don't get Showtime, so it's taken me a while to jump into the show. I've just … Continue reading Everyday Cosplay: Vanessa Ives

Here, listening to this as you read might help you get into the proper mindset to read this post: Just kidding. But seriously, can you believe it has been a DECADE since Saw was first released? I realize there have been seven Saw flicks since the first one was released, but for some reason my … Continue reading Saw Is Ten Years Old and Returning to Theaters Halloween!
Okay, BioWare. You've got my attention. I saw the first teaser for this new game, Nightmares, and I was intrigued. I signed up for the mailing list, and then promptly forgot that I had signed up--I do this frequently, which is why my email inbox is overrun with newsletters. I digress... It turns out signing … Continue reading Spark: Second Teaser Released for New BioWare Game
I love horror movies. I REALLY love bad horror movies. I REALLY REALLY love horror movies that have the movie's Big Bad kill off characters in fully ridiculous and excessively gorey ways (Final Destination movies, I'm looking at you--high five). Which brings me to the movie I watched over the weekend, My Bloody Valentine. I didn't see this … Continue reading Craptastic Movie Night: My Bloody Valentine
