Last week, the trailer for the Sci-Fi thriller “Passengers” dropped. We could go on bit about a movie that isn’t going to come around for a few months, however, we decided it would be better to highlight some of our favorite Sci-Fi flicks that you can see right now.
The Monster was nervous.
The leftovers he had acquired from the French Zombie Diner in town did not look as fresh as he would have liked. He respected the living too much to hunt one himself, of course, so he had to rely on scraps which was not ideal when performing such a sensitive experiment.
WARNING: Spoilers ahead
With the second episode freshly aired, there are a few things on my mind with this season of AHS. Like… Why do these people keep living in a house which is clearly either haunted or lined in hallucinogenic mushrooms? Where did that 24-hour cop-car go when the bloody butcher knife was stuck in the front door? And where the heck is Evan Peters and Lady Gaga?!
Time Out Of Joint
By: Philip K. Dick
Written by Philip K. Dick, Time Out Of Joint was a science fiction novel from 1959 set in an ordinary American suburbia where a man with a rather repetitive, dull existence starts to notice some strange goings-on before paranoia fully sets in.
Editor’s Note: Twenty-one years ago the Sailor Moon series debuted in America giving young girls one of the first female centric superhero shows. It also created a whole market dedicated to trading cards, stickers and toys. While Sailor Moon basically unofficially started Tea & Fiction, we have always had many issues with the various plot holes and lack of a backstory that left us grasping at straws. Today, we discuss these issues and the potentially darker plot line unexplored in the anime series.
I just finished the last episode of Grey’s Anatomy available on Netflix, an accomplishment that feels more or less on par with turning in my Master’s thesis. I mean, look at the time I invested in this show. According to a quick scroll through IMDB, seasons one through twelve were comprised of 268 episodes. At 43 Netflix minutes apiece, that means I spent 11,524 minutes, or 192 hours, watching this show. (I once calculated that I spent 800 hours behind the microscope for my grad school project, so the thesis comparison is not totally out of line.)
Let me first get this out of the way: I know that Grey’s Anatomy is kind of dumb. I could probably have spent those 192 hours on much better things. Yoga teacher training, perhaps, or filibustering. But I also think that Grey’s (as fans call it) isn’t a total waste of time. In fact, I think it gets a lot less credit than it deserves.
I was 13-years old when “The Blair Witch” was released. My parents and I went to The Bridge theatre in San Francisco. Watching Rated-R movies wasn’t a new thing but I think this was probably my first legitimate horror movie. I had no idea what to expect, but I was excited. Everyone was talking about. Everyone in school was talking about it. I was sure it was going to be an experience.
I remember my mom digging her nails digging into my leg for most of the movie. It didn’t help that the theatre was small, which only made the whole found footage, jittery camera thing so much more intense.
He always feels it in his fingers first.
The condensation from his beer slowly seeped into the fabric of his arm rest. It was another humid day. Like every other day these past two months his body rinses off in the shower and drinks a beer. He should be hungry. He hasn’t eaten since his bites of toast from this morning.
That should have been his first clue.
After a little over a week of watching nondescript commercials that managed to be as vague as possible and that utilized classic horror motifs from past horror movies: American Horror Story Season 6 finally aired.
When the credits rolled my reaction was, “What the fuck?! That’s all we get? What the fuck?”
All The Birds in the Sky

I strongly suspected I would like “All the Birds in the Sky” by io9 editor Charlie Jane Anders. When I put out an open call through my FaceBook for science fiction / fantasy books I immediately checked it out the description on Amazon when someone suggested I check it out.
The story centers on Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead. Patricia discovers she has a strong connection to nature with her ability to talk to animals. Laurence is a tech nerd who a future genius in the making.
