Paul Rudd is the (Ant) Man!

By: Meg Humphrey I loved Ant-Man all the way down to its teeny tiny pieces. I’ve been seeing things like “Ant-Man is Phase 2’s Hulk” and yes, it did pull in smaller box office numbers than more recent Marvel movies, and yes, the villain is basically an evil version of Ant-Man, but honestly I think […]

Geeky Shoes

By: Terra Clarke Olsen Vans recently released an amazing Star Wars line of shoes, backpacks, and hats. I’ve never owned a pair of Vans before, but that’s about to change because I essentially want it all. Look at this amazing flower print, subtly  featuring Yoda. A thing of beauty, really. Or how about these splendid Stormtrooper bandana prints. Black […]
