Recently I was invited to be a guest on the Hellbent for Horror End of the Year Edition podcast, where myself and four other colleagues discussed some of the finer and not-so-finer movies that were released in 2016. While you might not be aware of it, according to wikipedia 113 horror movies were released last year. […]

Passengers: The Red Dwarf Movie We Didn’t Know We Needed…

Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in a big-screen, all-American adaptation of BBC’s Red Dwarf. Right? When my wife and I headed off to see Passengers last night, I had no idea that it was an American big-screen version of the classic BBC series Red Dwarf. I’d thought it was a big-budget sci-fi romance – […]

ModCon02 returns to active duty at Echoba.se with a look back at his favorite music from 2016 – this most savage of years. Be warned, comrades: heartache and wrenching change lie ahead.   2016 was a rough year. I’m sorry if that’s redundant or not particularly insightful, but, well… it needs to be said. For […]

  Welcome to another edition of Independent’s Day, a place where we interview creative people who are doing their own thing. A few months ago, my friend and fellow Echo Base writer Damien texted me late one night from a convention he was at and told me ‘dude, you should be here’. He went on […]

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, if you have, well then come on in. TWD ended its midseason run with (another) 90 minute episode. At this point it’s unusual for the show to only be 60 minutes, including commercials.  The bloated run-time is likely a side-effect of the expansive […]

It’s been almost 4 years since How I Met Your Mother aired it’s final episode and the fate of the gang, including the titular mother was revealed. I was visiting my sister today when that final episode was on and we chatted while it played in the background. As the final credits rolled and pictures […]

Last night, I hit the multi-plex with Lady_Lorelai and Queseramara to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them… and was underwhelmed. BE WARNED, this review contains SPOILERS. Wiizzy Wiig made a crack on Facebook that I’d have the same baffling reaction to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as I did to The Man […]

Book retailers Barnes and Noble are hosting a Harry Potter-themed “Yule Ball” at their stores across the country this Friday. I love Barnes and Noble. Some of my best friends work there, they sell a multitude of my books on the Nook, and it’s the place I always go to sit down with a coffee […]

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.   So I guess Carl is Negan’s apprentice now (and I mean that in the Star Wars sense). What we saw take shape this week was basically the missing Obi Won (Rick) and the present Vader (Negan) vying to […]
