Neila Rey’s Nerdy Workouts Make Me Actually Want to Work Out, and That’s Saying Something

Maybe it’s just that for the first time in my life I actually miss having time to work out, but Neila Rey’s pop culture themed work outs are really  as physically challenging and logistically easy as one could hope, and for every kind of nerd reference you might care to make. We’ve posted only a few here, there are lots more at her site.



It’s Hard To Say Goodbye When Our Favorite TV Shows Overstay Their Welcome

I have a confession to make: When The CW made the announcement it would be renewing Supernatural for its tenth season with no end in sight, I groaned. Audibly. It’s not because I dislike the show. On the contrary, I hold the Winchesters near and dear to my heart. I pause in respectful silence any time I hear “Carry On Wayward Son,” but I’m worried about my beloved series going down in a depressing spiral of mediocre episodes. Nobody wants that.

Sometimes, as fans, we just have to let go.

Things We Saw Today: Lady Fett

“I remember playing with my Boba Fett action figure as a little kid, and my mom saying ‘Boba Fett could be a woman, you can’t tell with the armor and the helmet.’ This was in the mid- 90s, before the prequel films revealed Boba Fett to be some lame clone kid,” says Tumblr user aJRAWINGS. “I still think of Boba Fett being female to this day, and I still think that’s cooler than the ‘official’ explanation.” Ditto. (thanks, anon tipster!)

For great justice

Supernatural, Batwoman, Orphan Black Snag GLAAD Award Nominations

Yup. You read that right. Supernatural, a show outdone in sheer amount of queerbaiting only by Sherlock (yeah, I said it), got nominated for an award meant to honor the portrayal of LGBT persons in media. What’s more, the reason for the nom actually makes sense! Thanks, Felicia Day. We owe you one or five.

Classy Propaganda Posters for the Shows Tumblr Loves

Bruce Loves You on Etsy has a series of Game of Thrones propaganda posters, and honestly, Arya the Riveter would probably be enough for us, but the shop also has lovely prints for Supernatural, Doctor Who, Merlin, and Captain America. You know, the stuff that Tumblr likes. Take it from me, who proudly displays a horrifying The Hunger Games propaganda poster in her living room: you can never have too many.
