Mardi Gras Magic Comes to Cincinnati

The Voodoo Carnival 2012 Where can I start when describing this event? The wonderful performers? The amazing costumes? The beautiful facility? The incredible crowd? The near constant flirtation? I think that all of these things were intrinsic to making it a night to remember so I will have to go through all...

When Science and Science Fiction Collide

Dr Forge has a very interesting article over on the Pandoracon website that compares how antimatter is used in Star Trek versus how we are currently able to use it.

Can a Book that Turns you on Still be Great Literature? In Defense of Trashy Books

On Episode Five, Charlie and I gave our review of the best romance novel ever written: Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase.
