In no particular order, here are my personal favorite weapons used by bad-ass women in genre fiction. Whether you're fighting a dragon or a zombie or a literal God, you have to bring the right tools, and these are the best I've seen wielded by ladies of fantasy and sci-fi.
The VMAs are this weekend, and while I'm excited about the upcoming show, I've been reminiscing about my favorite VMAs of all time: 1999. Chris Rock hosted, Smash Mouth and Blink-182 entertained during the preshow, Lauryn Hill was the queen of the moonmen, and Britney Spears joined NSYNC for a medley of "... Show More Summary
Earlier this week, we premiered “Moral Melt,” a song off of the Island Of Misfit Toys’ sophomore album, I Made You Something. It’s quickly become one of my favorite tracks of the year. Now, the entire thing is here and it’s just as good. Caveat: This isn’t going to be for everyone — the Chicago […]
