If I had a dollar every time someone asked me what a TARDIS was… well you know the rest. But we know as proud Doctor Who fans, that it’s our duty to spread the good word of the doctor, his companions and travels. Doctor Who is sacred and priceless, but did you ever wonder how much an actual TARDIS would cost? The fine folks over at Movoto took a stab at its estimated price and it looks like I need to start saving up! More TARDIS Info via Motovo:

Doctor Who Valentines Day Cards by Tom Kurzanski

I love my Doctor Who Valentine’s Day cards as much as Rose loves Ten! Okay… that may be a bit extreme, but I do like them a whole lot! The card stock is thick and they are printed in great quality. I like that Tom’s cards are a mix of some of the older characters like Daleks and Cybermen as well as new ones like Oswin and the Silence. These V-day cards are a great way to whisper sweet nothing’s to your favorite Doctor Who fan! Interview with Tom Kurzanski: Can you tell us a bit about yourself? I’m an…

Movies & Television Sci-fi/ Cyberpunk TV Talk

TV Talk: There will be spoilers about the featured episode and previous episodes. I will not discuss major spoilers from the shows source material (even though I really want to). However, I might compare the source material and show only after that event has happened, or clearly won’t happen. TV Talk isn’t really a recap, or an official review. It’s how I feel about the episode and show in general. Just me, talkin’ about TV. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a TV Talk, but it’s time I shared my thoughts on a platform other than Twitter. As…

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? I am 38 and have just come out as a sci-fi geek these last few years. It has been so much fun to go to conventions, talk about my favorite shows and books endlessly, and even create a sci-fi book club. In the daytime, I’m opening a seasonal restaurant on a lake with my husband so I can have winters off. What is your tattoo of and why did you get it? My tattoo is a rocket ship in space done in the style of 1950’s sci-fi book art. I really like the stylization and…

The Underrepresentation of Black Women & Latinas in Science Fiction Fun facts before I get started: According to “Richard Whettestone of, as of 2005 only 15 science-fiction TV series have featured black women in lead roles. Less than 9% of Science-Fiction TV series have featured black women as main characters… Including recurring characters who were usually tossed in the background.” [Source] There aren’t that many Black women and Latinas in science fiction and that is a problem, and not a new problem by any means. The fact that we can probably easily name all of the Black women and…

Ysabelkid's Firefly/Serenity Tattoo

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to write up a Tattoo Tuesday post, so I’m glad I’m back with some awesome sci-fi ink from a reader!

She went into depth on her blog about why she chose to have the sci-fi ship and portal, but the short version is, “Each…

Vaughan and Fiona Staples (Saga), David Hine (Storm Dogs), Joe Harris (Great Pacific), Glen Brunswick (Non-Humans) and Brian Wood and Ming Doyle (Mara). Brian Wood said that in Mara, the sci-fi is less about the actual technology and more about how it affects the characters in his story. It’s about how we as…
