MTV Had Some New Year’s Resolution Suggestions for White Guys & Shocker, a Lot of White Guys Are Super Pissed
Auld Lang Sigh.
Most of us would find it obvious that this video is 1. Humor. And 2. Not an actual attempt to lump every existing white male into a monolith that has, in every way imaginable, caused the downfall of society over the last 12 months. Right? We're safe in assuming both of those things are true? Oh, how naive we are.Read More
This is a video mashup that I never would've thought of myself, but I'm incredibly glad someone else did. That someone is comedian and writer Todd Spence, and his video "Back to the Westworld" visits the concept of what would happen if the worlds of Back to the Future Part 3 and HBO's Westworld somehow merged--and I've got to admit, this is a crossover I really want to see.Read More

[VIDEO]: Anita Sarkeesian Talks Bob’s Burgers, Feminist Frequency, and the Importance of Safe Geek Spaces
While still small when compared to cons like SDCC, in the past few years GeekGirlCon has gone from 2,500 attendees to over 11,000, which goes to show that this Seattle convention has become increasingly worth our time and attention. Another organization that has grown immensely in the past few years? Feminist Frequency, which has gone from labor of love started by Anita Sarkeesian on her own in her apartment to fully-fledged non-profit with a staff and several video projects in the works.Read More
With reboots and remakes of long-running franchises and already existing, successful projects making up a significant number of films and TV shows released within the past few years, there's been some well-deserved complaints among fans who want Hollywood to take more chances on original stories. But, what do we mean when we say "original?"Read More
Last week, I wrote a post about Gabrielle Union, and how she wanted to reach out to Hollywood peers like Amy Schumer and Kate Upton to have a frank discussion about their public missteps regarding race. In the above video, I go a little further with the idea that white allies should do their best to educate themselves before expecting help from people of color and suggest some tiny things they can do to do so while also caring for the people of color in their lives.Read More

I still have some, and we only have three episodes left.
We've seen three out of the promised six episodes so far in the miniseries, and it's hard to conceive of all the story that creator Chris Carter and crew will manage to fit into those three remaining hours. Given what we know so far, there are a few things I'm hoping we'll get some closure on before the last episode wraps up.Read More
*Three episodes later*
Aw yeah.Read More

It's a series of neon tubes!
Ahhh, the '80s. Neon, power ballads, and the Internet. Oh, you don't remember the Internet from the '80s? Get learnt about this here newfangled contraption by taking a trip through time with a vintage tech news segment. Look at those two guys manually typing printed news stories into computers. One day, someone just like them will type the words "you won't believe" in a headline, and their whole industry will be revolutionized.Read More
As a Firefly late bloomer, I owe you, Internet.
We here at The Mary Sue have a lot of opinions about spoilers, as does the rest of nerd-dom, obviously. In her new animation Leigh Lahav depicts the egregious sin of spoiling a beloved geeky entity for one's friends—a transgression second only to insulting another's ship.Read More
