I Read A Book: Soap Opera Divas Paper Dolls


by Keidra Chaney A couple of things first: I didn’t so much read this book as I oohed and ahhed over it. Also, this isn’t so much a paper doll book as it is a paper museum of a long-vanished segment of pop culture. It’s been three years since the cancellation of All My Children and […]



As-I-Play XCOM: Fresh Meat (Part Five)

As-I-Play XCOM: War of Attrition (Part Four)

by Kristin Bezio I have now reached that point in the game – which happens to a certain extent in any game, I think, although some more than others – when I start a mission and immediately think “Oh, god, just get me through this.” And then I spend what feels like an hour but […]
