    10 Pop Culture Characters Who Eat Bugs

    Last week I wrote a piece on an eye-opening experience I had eating crackers made with cricket flour which led me to discover that “entomophagy,” the eating of bugs, is a growing trend here in the United States.

    On the Shelves: Home Video Releases for Oct 14, 2014

    Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases this week. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – This movie is awesome. A perfect capper to the original X-Men movies from the early 2000s and a great continuation of the newer “The New Class” movies. I highly recommend it. Plus, it’s great to see much of the old X-Men […]

    Fan Art Friday: Alex Solis’ BABY TERRORS Series

    Continuing our horror-themed countdown to Halloween, this week’s Fan Art Friday is dedicated to Chicago-based artist Alex Solis‘ BABY TERRORS sketch series.

I’m not the […]

    LEGOLAND® California Invites Us to Go Brick-or-Treating This Year

    If I was to go anywhere this Halloween, with exception to Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights experience, it’d have to be LEGOLAND® California who’s holding their own Brick-or Treat event all month long in October. If you remember The Rube’s Monster-Sized Lego ‘Monster Fighters’ Review from last year you’ll recall that LEGO stepped it up […]
