5 Fantasy Swords That Will Brighten Up Your Wall

I’m sitting here looking at the bare walls of our relatively new home, thinking of how to make things a little more interesting. There is, of course, the usual – paintings.

Spice Up Your TV Show Life With Grimm

Last night, I gave in and started watching one of the newest TV shows airing today: Grimm. With The Walking Dead being as dragging as it is – I haven’t seen the latest episode, and I don’t particularly feel the desire to do so – it is about time for TV show junkies to cast […]

This Haunted Dollhouse Will Complete Your Halloween

I have never been one to play with dollhouses or dolls. I think that the last set of dolls I got when I was a kid didn’t survive for very long. There is, however, this certain dollhouse that I certainly would not mind having around. In a separate room that is always well lit. I […]

Remember the list that NPR published earlier this year? Titled “Your Picks: Top 100 Science-Fiction, Fantasy Books“, the list has caught the attention of every science fiction and fantasy enthusiast in the planet. And then some. If memory serves me correctly, there was even a question (or poll) going around on Facebook asking people to […]

Ta’veren Tees for the Wheel of Time Fan

So it seems that everyone has fallen for George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world, thanks to HBO’s Game of Thrones. As much as I love the TV show and the books, I still can’t help but go back to my first love: Wheel of Time. This epic series by Robert Jordan remains unmatched in my heart. […]

Boys and girls of Westeros, this is the only calendar that you need for 2012 – the year of the dragon. The 2012 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar has been released, and if you are anything like me, your heart will be palpitating in anticipation. No exaggeration here. As one can expect, there […]

Game of Thrones Flowchart: Would You Survive in the Seven Kingdoms?

The characters all die. Would you make it if you got dumped in the middle of the Seven Kingdoms? Don’t get me wrong – I love this series, but I have never denied the fact that every reading makes me depressed because all the “good” ones die. Even the “bad” ones with “good” sides die. […]

Winter Is Coming, B*tches: “Stupid” Ned Stark

Have you gotten into Game of Thrones yet? Call me boring, but one of my favorite characters – even when I read the books – is Ned Stark. His character is so solid that even though you can predict pretty much what he will do, you can’t help but admire how honest and straight he […]

I suppose that given the immense amount of creativity necessary to come up with a successful […]

HBO’s Game of Thrones: Not Your Ordinary “Boy Fiction”

What’s Your Geek Zodiac?

It’s the Year of the Rabbit, and if this is your sign, you are ambitious, articulate, and talented. You also are virtuous and have excellent taste. On the other hand, you are fond of gossip. If you don’t buy all that zodiac stuff, then forget the first three sentences of this post. However, since you […]

New Song of Ice and Fire Figures!

I’m such a sucker for George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, and I am definitely one of those waiting eagerly for the April debut of HBO’s TV series based on the book.
