OscarsSoWhite – The Clif Notes Version

Since the nominations for this year’s Academy Awards were released, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite has been going around. It’s prompted calls for boycotts from Jada Pinkett-Smith, and many A-Listers have been weighing in with their own opinions.

[VIDEO] Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf 5.12 “Damnatio Memoriae”

George Lucas still can’t let Star Wars go. (Creator woes)

Here, have a little Poe Dameron. When it was announced that Disney was buying Lucasfilm (and the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises), I wondered how Lucas was going to handle it. This is a man who was so incapable of letting go of his creations that he continued to tweak them with every re-release ....more

Gifts for the Tech Lover / Con Goer

In Part 2 of Whitney’s first year doing gift guides, I thought I’d lay out some of my favorite gadgets for tech on the go. I might not be a tech guru (I prefer the term aficionado), but I do carry my phone with me at all times, and find myself needing to keep my phone on at all times while being far away from outlet space. And if I can make my phone last a full day at a comic con (while posting pictures), at least I can help you with that ....more

Gifts for the Athletic Person in your life
