Meet the Hero in Stasis

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 22, 2022

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 17, 2022



I liked her. The trailer dropped and I didn't quite like the trailer, but I liked her.

Fantastic Bestiary 12: The Na’vi

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, Aug. 28, 2022



Another pop cultural fantastic bestiary Sunday. Anybody remember the movie Avatar? Not the kung-fu fantasy one, the tribal sci-fi one. The James Cameron’s Avatar as it was marketed. I still remember it being the movie that REALLY set the standard for what CGI technology can do cinematically, making this ...

Welcome to…
The DD Fashion Spotlight!
Number 27.


John Henry Hunter is a terrible dastardly villain in a very classic sense… he's handsome, has a great goatee, fierce eyebrows, a marvelous figure with a powerful chest, and most importantly for this article: he dresses with style and care. He ...

Banes at 12:00AM, May 26, 2022

The Guy in the Hat Killed the Other Guy in the Hat

Banes at 12:00AM, May 12, 2022
