As anyone who watched this scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron knows, only those who are worthy can lift Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. That's because it's magic. But of course some nerd figured out a way to use science to make a hammer no one else can lift. And of course I'm mad I didn't...
There's kind of a big party going on this weekend, and no, it's not Austin City Limits. I have no idea what that is. It's Mondo Con ! The fine folks at the Alamo Drafthouse have their own fine folks who create all those cool collectibles - posters, t-shirts, vinyl albums, toys,...
(blog by Alex ) Tim League, creator of the Alamo Drafthouse and all-around badass, came in-studio today to warn us that Fantastic Fest starts on Thursday . I say 'warn,' because Jason and Deb need to know that I'm going to be a zombie for the next two weeks. A ritual stretching...

Sure, people were worked up (one way or another) about the recent Supreme Court decisions to uphold the Affordable Care Act and to declare gay marriage to be legal in all 50 states. But it's kind of boring to slog through all the long debates and decisions and dissents. So my...
This is the most embarrassing thing I've ever seen a Teen Mom alum do, and that includes Farrah Abraham... talking. Sure. Talking is what I was gonna say. I've never seen a minute of the show, but I'm glad it provided opportunities for hard-working young ladies who have diabetes...
