Breaking news: half-naked women — especially while washing cars dressed like slave Princess Leia from “Star Wars” — get publicity. We’ll have to watch “Attack of The Show,” which threw Saturday’s slave Princess Leia car wash fundraiser, to see if the program actually gets charitable donations, though.

Oh, sci-fi dweebs, what will you think of next? “Star Wars” and burlesque are two subcultures which should not belong together, but somehow, these performers made it work! Except for “sexy” Jabba The Hutt, who will haunt my nightmares for time immemorial.
Pic, if you dare, after the jump … Keep reading »

My best friend once made the mistake of telling me that she had written “Buffy” fan fiction when she was younger and I mercilessly teased her for years, even though it was that nerdy center that endeared her to me in the first place. Some of you may not be familiar with the steamy underground world of fan fiction where devoted fans think up (often sexy) scenarios for their favorite characters. For fun, we’ve rounded up six fanfic excerpts and taken out the nouns so you can guess which show/book/movie they are based on. Guess all six correctly and win … dork credibility? Keep reading »
Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but Will.i.am transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN studio from Grant Park in Chicago. At a such a crucial time in our history, Anderson Cooper united nerds across this great land by saying, “Let’s see if we can beam him in.” Then, right there, before our very eyes, the first man ever in hologram, FOR REAL, on national television!
Okay, so Will.i.am got it a little mixed up and said he felt like he was in “Star Wars.” But, Cooper quickly corrected him that, much like cell phones, it was in fact The Trek that was responsible for this kind of totally awesome technology! [FYI, "Star Wars" had pre-recorded hologram messages ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.") but could not beam people anywhere, though that sure would have come in handy.] Sigh, we love the Coop!
