Thursday night I saw Iron Man Three. It was pretty good. Except for those dreaded movie talkers. Now, in my review I only devoted a paragraph to the dregs of humanity who found their own dialogue more interesting than Tony Stark’s. But that was only a fraction of what I really wanted to say. Let the rant begin. There are [...]Read more ›

I'm a writer and editor and newlywed. I'm hunting for a job, so feel free to hit me up if you know of anything! I love to be challenged by art, food and people. If I'm out of my comfort zone, I know something interesting is about to happen.
I love pork. A lot.
I tweet occasionally @jschooljunkette. Tweet me with your questions, comments, suggestions, or pork recipes.
The hype says that Iron Man Three is the best of the franchise. I respectfully disagree. It was good. It was streets ahead of Iron Man: The Deuce. And it was funny and entertaining. I enjoyed myself. But for some reason, the entire drive home I complained about it. What’s up with that? Maybe it’s because it has 100 percent [...]Read more ›
I’ve always been a geek, but I didn’t realize just how much of a kid I was until I had to act like a grown up 85 percent of the time. For the last few years, my friends and I would mosey out at midnight to catch most comic book movies at the moment they opened. It was a majestic [...]Read more ›
If you’re wandered around Tumblr since last May odds are you’ve stumbled on one of these things: Pictures of young people smoking (Stop it, stupid!), gifs from Real Housewives of the Seventh Circle of Hell, erotic drawing of things you wouldn’t normally find erotic that frankly make me worried the FBI will confiscate my computer when I stumble on them, [...]Read more ›
The act of watching a movie full of sci-fi presented as science, especially a comic book movie, with a real scientist is a self-flagellation similar to asking an elderly relative about their health and hearing about their bowel movements. You’ll get responses…at length…that you don’t want to hear…but out of respect and/or legally binding vows you can’t shut them down. [...]Read more ›
Trolling Etsy’s depths for things I can’t afford is a beloved pastime for me. Trolling Etsy’s depths for Doctor Who-related items is a beloved method for getting past Cool Ship-related writer’s block for me. In that spirit, I present to you some of beautiful geek-ster eggs that are sure to make anyone, be they a Time Lord, your companion, or [...]Read more ›
Loving things that are terrible is one of the great joys of Netflix. Thanks to Watch Instantly, or Qwikster as it will always be in my heart, you can enjoy the latest of today and yesterday’s televised shit and in bulk no less. I’ve declared my love of The Vampire Diaries (called VD unironically by anyone born since 1990 and [...]Read more ›
Hey, sports fans, I’m going to ask you to take a journey with me to the serious place. Just for today, I promise. I’ll have a funny article up tomorrow. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t get many friend requests on Facebook. Maybe a handful a month, and even then it’s mostly people I’ve recently met. [...]Read more ›
Bonus Thursday edition! WooHoo! Sorry for the week delay. Things have been crazy at Casa Kiphart, but have no fear! I have returned! Every Tuesday night, Mike and I settle in to see what flotsam and jetsam has washed up on the shores of Watch Instantly. Alcohol isn’t always involved, but let’s be honest, it usually is. So, join me [...]Read more ›
You probably don’t even notice I’m absent from your Newsfeed, if I ever made it up there. One day, you’ll reminisce about college and my name will pop up, and you’ll idly wonder what I’m up to. You’ll type my name into Facebook, and you won’t see anything. “I thought we were Facebook friends!” You shout, maybe overturning a table [...]Read more ›
“That is not the movie I thought we were watching,” said Mike about 20 minutes into the 2002 movie The Sweetest Thing. What he was referring to was the Bollywood-esque dance number regarding how a woman should react to the size of her date’s…well, based on the ellipses I’m going to guess you know what I’m talking about. Family publication, [...]Read more ›
I like toast. Not a little. A lot. Everything is better when placed on it. Make a pb&j on hot bread and the middle melts together like heaven on whole wheat. It’s even better with a Nutella and peanut butter, but I digress. Toast is a delightful conduit for everything. I posit to you that anything that makes a good [...]Read more ›
The temperature this week has had more ups and downs than a drag queen’s wigs during a show. I may have run out yesterday in a fleece, but I shivered home in the snow. Fortunately the weather wasn’t the only interesting thing that happened this week! Want to be perceived as a hipster but hate all the going to dive [...]Read more ›
We all have our guilty pleasures. Mine are watching terrible movies, eating powdered coffee creamer directly from the container, planning vacations online that I won’t take, The Vampire Diaries, and, when I was a kid, sharing Rice Krispy treats with Waggs, my trusty stubborn, fat dog. Actually, that’s a lie. I don’t feel guilty about any of those. I mean, [...]Read more ›
Hey, party people! I’m sorry that this is Last Week in Geek. I had sort of an upside down week. But, here’s some funformation to keep you interesting around the water cooler. Judge Dredd is the law, but is he also gay? Looks like. You know how what makes you you is written in your DNA? Well, researchers recently proved [...]Read more ›

According to my phone, Albany is currently 11°F. That means that only reason I’m leaving my house is to get a haircut (Because my long hair is mad aggravating, yo.) and buy a sofa (Fun fact: Five years after college is the international time limit for owning a futon instead of a sofa bed. Sure, we can call what’s in [...]Read more ›

Did you ever watch the episode of Batman: Animated Series that featured Jonah Hex? Come on! If was the episode that didn’t really feature Batman; it just featured Hex in a western-style Gotham (I’m going to push out of my logic centers that Gotham is based on New York City for a moment and accept this since the episode was [...]Read more ›
