The 13th Doctor Has Been Revealed!

And for some reason, people have a problem with it… Not that this surprises anyone.

This is a long and difficult post. However, I really need to get this off my chest.

A friend of mine and I had a good conversation a while back. It was about gender/race swapping comic book characters. He, as a black man, had some pretty good insights on the subject. Honestly, he’s one of the smartest geeks I know. He will beat you in quite a lot of comic book trivia. But ultimately his opinion boiled down to a simple truth;

If it doesn’t define the character, it doesn’t matter.

I’d never thought of it that way, but Continue reading

AshenLogoStuart Ashen, the prolific British comedian and YouTube personality (who some of you Nerd-Base’rs may know from his dry, witty, irreverent and frequently hysterical reviews of downright terrible electronic games and dollar-store junk, via his POV camera on his old brown sofa) is crowd funding a full-length feature film!

Unlike his low-fi YouTube reviews, this will be a cinematic quality venture featuring a BBC-worthy script and some accomplished greats like Warwick Davis (Star Wars, Harry Potter) and Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf)!
