Official trailers for Stephen King’s “It” remake are finally here, and fans have a lot to look forward to.

How Jessica Jones Sold me on Superheroes

WARNING: SPOILERS!

 

I have a crush on Jessica Jones. It’s the first series of it’s kind that I’ve really enjoyed. As a seasoned geek, most people assume that I love superheroes, or at the very least expect me to pick a side between Marvel and DC. Having only discovered comics in my mid-twenties the genre lacks […]

How Women Have Become a Niche Market

For Mike, who loved to collect and was taken from us far too soon.

 

A few days ago I received a comment on a blog post I wrote over a year ago about unboxing collectibles. Cringe though you might, I’m an un-boxer and it turns out so is my new friend, Dana. I love meeting fellow […]

Supanova, Melbourne 2015

I came. I saw. I spent LOTS of money.

That’s right, geeklets, it’s Con season, and yesterday I kicked things off with my yearly pilgrimage to the Melbourne Showgrounds for Supanova Pop Culture Expo. The event was comparably bigger, busier and more diverse than previous iterations, with a seemingly greater emphasis on gaming and community participation. With […]

An Ode to Girl Geek Fashion

I was so excited when I thought to write this post. I gushed at the thought of how perfectly it marries my love of geek and girl culture. It should have been a no brainer really. Women are routinely held to outrageous standards of beauty and judged when they’re found to be non-compliant with the status quo. What’s worse, […]

Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman are Expecting a Baby!

I usually reserve blog posts for long-form articles, but this is definitely post-worthy. Just five hours ago, the delightful Neil Gaiman announced that he and Amanda Palmer are expecting their first baby together! Lit-nerds, art-nerds, rejoice! The announcement was made via Twitter and soon followed by a post from AFP (Amanda Fucking Palmer) herself, bragging […]

Disney Princesses Vie for Supremacy in Awesome Rap Battles

Today’s post celebrates one of my favourite things on the Internet: Disney Princess remixes. You know the kind: “Your favourite Disney Princesses re-imagined as Hipsters”, “If Disney Princesses were Historically Accurate”, or “Disney Princesses re-imagined as your Favourite Fried-Food” (I kid you not). I actually adore Disney films, so my love of Disney remixes doesn’t […]

Ok, this post is a little late, but surely there’s never a bad time to celebrate girl geek realness in your local hood, right? Last weekend I attended my first ever All Star Women’s Comic Book Club Meet Up at 1000£ Bend, and even though that was almost a week ago, I want to share […]

The Year Feminism Won the Oscars

In case you don’t have a Twitter account or access to the Internet, today (or tonight if you’re on Pacific Standard time) The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood hosted the 87th Academy Awards. Amid a flood of speculative tweets and grainy post-speech YouTube videos, something else stood out in the social commentary this year: Feminism.

Apparently, 2015 is […]
