  • Crazy Weekend; Tired Blogger

    Personally, I don’t quite see what weddings and restraint have to do with one another. What, you think I like weddings because they’re romantic? Please. A wedding, like any public ceremony, is a production, and that is irresistible to a theater goddess. – A Snag in the Tapestry (Thalia’s Musings, Volume One) As I write this, it’s […]

  • Nicola Tesla, Vampire: NBC’s Dracula

    What if Nicola Tesla were a vampire, and the corporate overlords who suppressed his inventions for their own profits were part of an ancient Draconian order of vampire hunters? I get the impression that was the original premise of NBC’s Dracula, and the network ended up using Bram Stoker’s public domain characters instead for the […]

  • 10 TV Pairs That I Love

  • Sleepy Hollow #MediaMondays

    So far, Sleepy Hollow ties with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the Fall 2013 show I’m most excited about. Since it seems like everyone else has done Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., I decided to start my Media Mondays prompt by reviewing Sleepy Hollow. And by reviewing, I mean shamelessly fangirling. In this modern-day twist on Washington Irving’s classic, […]
