I've sampled many of this galaxy's un-Earthly delights, including fantastic sandwiches at Columbia, Missouri's simply named Sub Shop. There's a few of them across college burg, but the original location is tucked away in a sleepy corner of downtown. I had visited this chill establishment often while living in the area as a youth, and … Continue reading Travels in the Space Station Wagon: The Sub Shop Lord of the Rings Mural
Derelict shopfronts and decaying strip malls aren't hard to find in America these days, as the economy has never truly recovered from the 2008 crash. Retailers like to blame consumers doing more of their shopping on the internet, which is fair. But also less people with free cash to spend = less people buying shit, … Continue reading Closed Comic Shop
A while back I decided to check out Wikipedia's entry on everyone's favorite trilobite-headed (or smooth-headed) warrior aliens, the Klingons. While the Memory Alpha page on Klingons is probably the best resource to refer to on the fictional species, I was curious to see what the normie Wiki had to say on the topic.

Is this better or worse then the Leonard Nimoy Magnavox short film that we watched a few weeks ago? Did you know that James Doohan was in the Royal Canadian Artillery … Continue reading Scotty Shills Plates
Before you ask "why the hell are you using Bing???" ...my phone's browser has that hardwired in as the search feature. Also (THE AMAZING) Spider-Man uses Bing. Garry Shandling recently passed away (RIP Mr. Shandling) and I was trying to find a picture of him as Senator Stern, the douchey government official/member of HYDRA from … Continue reading If you type “Senator” into Bing Image Search, the seventh picture is a Squidhead senator from Star Wars
Recently my buddy Tom invited me to what he termed a "warehouse comic book sale" out in Brooklyn. Me: "You mean a bunch of vendors setting up in a warehouse somewhere, like a convention without celebrities or cosplayers?" Tom: "Not quite, it's just one guy." And then he sent me this link. We took the … Continue reading Wandering the Warehouse of Wonders
So when we got back to our house a few days after Christmas we of course had a little pile of mail. Bills demanding every free dollar of my income, mail for people who haven't lived here in years (I bring it back to the post office because I'M A GOOD PERSON), pathetic letters from … Continue reading My Holiday Horror
