  1. GoldieBlox’s First App Will Teach Kids About the Magic Of… Gif-Making?

    Yeah ok.

    Y'all should be aware that I'm a big fan of movies, gifs, and girls learning about science (specifically, in this case, the science of early motion pictures and the zoopraxiscope).

  7. Funko Releasing New Game of Thrones Action Figures For Everyone Who Wants to Make Brienne and Jaime Smooch

    Brienne, you're looking a little... stiff.

"Your Grace, it appears that you have been trapped beyond the Wall... IN THE ETERNAL FREEZER OF DEATH! Arya, you wanna help me ice this dude?"

  8. Dear DC Comics, This Is Why You Shouldn’t Leave Creative Little Girls Behind

    A geek dad reports.
