Greg and Jan are participating in the #TwitterYardSaleOK drive to help raise some extra cash for the thousands of [...]
All of us here at NA are huge fans of Dave Filoni and the wonderful stuff he did with Star Wars: The Clone Wars. What started off as a juvenile show aimed squarely at children, soon became a rich action packed adventure series for people of all ages, even the salty old ones. When [...]
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was our idea. Yep, that’s right, we thought of it way back in July of 2012. You want evidence? Fine! Check out episode 69 of Rated NA right around the 34 minute mark. Okay, we realize we’re probably not the only group of geeks on the planet that fantasized about a S.H.I.E.L.D. television series before it was announced last year, but we like to feel special on occasion.

Yes, I’m fully aware that this article is woefully late, but we’ve been BUSY.

Here is quick look at some of the costumes of MegaCon 2013.
When I was too young to drive, my ever-supportive mom threw me in our conversion van (complete with bad ass B&W television) and drove me all the way to my very first comic book convention, MegaCon 1994. As a little kid that grew up on an island, I was absolutely [...]
Bioshock Infinite’s limited edition strategy guide from Brady Games not only answered all of my pressing questions, it answered them with style. In the introduction Irrational’s Ken Levine states something that I couldn’t agree with more,” It’s a true insider’s look at the game, to explore Colombia with a packet of information that Booker Dewitt would have killed for..”
very once in a while we encounter a new band that we can’t help but talk about. Form and Shape’s album My Conquest is the Sea of Stars sends listeners on an auditory journey through deep space with ominous beats in all the right places. If you’ve ever imagined what sort of music people might listen to while traveling at light speed on a starship, the answer is Form and Shape.
