The Unicorn Files: Kickstarter Campaign Seeks to Debunk the Myth of the Female Geek

‘Dark Lord Funk’ is the ‘Uptown Funk’ Parody Harry Potter Fans Need To See

Confession time: I LOVE “Uptown Funk.” It is so damn catchy and fun and I dance (whether it’s car dancing or full-on grooving) whenever I hear it. But, of course, whenever a mega popular song comes along — a slew of parodies follow. Whether it’s Arthur Darvill telling Doctor Who fans to “Let It Go” or...

The Future is Here: You Can Now Play League of Legends LCS Fantasy

Remember when our parents would make us go outside to play because “being on the computer all day” would get us no where?

All Your World are Belong to Microsoft: The HoloLens Gives Us a Taste of “Mixed Reality”

The future is here… almost. From Minority Report to Iron Man, I’ve been waiting for hologram technology to become “a thing.” We’ve seen the broader strokes of this tech used by CNN (and seen the backlash against it) and have been visited by the dead during several music concerts, including appearances by the late Michael Jackson...

Japanese Tennis Pro Plays Match With a Wooden Sword (Because Nissin Ramen)

I’m a huge fan of Japanese cuisine and ramen is a particular favorite of mine. Sure, I’ve eaten mountains of that Cup of Noodle, super processed stuff during my high school and college days (OK, and that one time I got a 20 pack at COSCO for like $7), but there’s nothing like a from...
