Wayward Pines Review

tumblr_nnkqj7iv1P1uu8xv9o1_r1_1280.gif

On May 14, 2015, FOX gave us the television series Wayward Pines based on the book series by the same name written by Blake Crouch. The series starts with a brooding FBI agent Ethan Burke, sent on mission to find two missing agents. While en route, he and his partner are involved in a car crash. Ethan survives and awakens in the weird but seemingly idyllic town of Wayward Pines. The town even has it’s own motto: “Work Hard. Be happy. Enjoy your life in Wayward Pines.”

Sleepy Hollow's Casting Announcement Shows Its Priorities... and Its Failures

(Inda Lauryn has been published in Blackberry, A Magazine, Interfictions, The Toast, XOJane, and Callaloo as well as had her work featured on blogs such as Black Girl Nerds, Bitch Flicks, and AfroPunk. She is currently working on a novel and a sci-fi web series, occasionally blogs at Corner Store Press and hosts a radio show at MixCloud.)

Sleepy Hollow was an immediate success when it first premiered in the fall of 2013. Those of us who frequently livetweet had a blast with the first episode and were immediately hooked. By the time we got through the season finale of the 13-episode run, we were elated and thought we finally had the show we've wanted for years.

Then season 2 happened.

Rest In Peace Satoru Iwata

"On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer."
     - from Satoru Iwata's keynote at the 2005 Game Developer's Conference

Satoru Iwata

Satoru Iwata was just on my computer screen presenting upcoming titles for Nintendo’s products. He seemed happy while in human or puppet form. He was doing what he loved, talking about video games, and was as optimistic as anyone could be when doing what they love. This made the sudden news of his passing even more jarring.  This was the first death in gaming that has seemingly shocked and saddened everyone in this huge yet strangely tiny community. Regardless of your platform or genre allegiances, it’s impossible to not miss a legend when their light is extinguished too soon. This was the case with Satoru Iwata.

No Really, Turn On Your Location: How Not Taking A Side Only Supports Rape Culture

On the latest episode of Nerdgasm Noire Network, we talked about the recent development in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case. In the leaked court documents Bill Cosby states he bought Quaaludes with the intent to give them to young women with whom he wanted sex -- or in truer words to rape. On the episode, JP explains why the latter word is most accurate. This news led to a variety of responses from celebrities. Some were apologetic regarding their initial defense of Bill Cosby, like Jill Scott. Others were insistent of Bill Cosby’s innocence, confusing, and somehow included black and white photos of Martin Luther King Jr, like Faizon Love. However, the most annoying response came from those who are still waiting to say anything. There are those -- Whoopi Goldberg and Raven Symone in particular -- who believe that not enough evidence has come out to have any real opinion and would like to leave it at that.

Bitch Better Have My Intersectional Feminism or STFU About My Video

The concern troll posts were already up on yesterday morning. Somehow, after the video’s debut last night, pumpkin spice lattes were found in early July and the lobby of a Starbucks was open just late enough for White FeministsTM to type away about how unfeminist Rihanna is without taking in one important fact: not everything is for or about them.
