The Best Music You’re Not Listening To II: Linkin Park, Laughs, and Lads

By now, many of you have heard of Chester Bennington’s tragic death. I’m writing this on July 20, 2017, his death only having been reported hours before. His family, his friends, his fans are all rocked by this, and I feel like repeating anything I want to say about him and Linkin Park on July 21st’s episode of our podcast would be tacky on many levels. So I won’t get into much detail other than the two things I do want to repeat here and tomorrow: Never forget the incredible battle Chester waged, and that the band and his family helped him wage it.

The Best Tabletop You’re Not Playing

Let’s Talk Tabletop Well, E3 2017 has just come to visit and we got our game on in Nerd Fight #12, so I’m waxing a little nostalgic. Friends, Romans, countrymen, let’s talk boards and dice.

Let’s Talk About the Invisible Woman

In amongst all the Wonder Woman hype, I want to remind y’all of Susan Storm-Richards, A.K.A. The Invisible Woman. No, not because of Jessica Alba. Having watched Jessica in Dark Angel, I blame poorly written characterization on her foray into the Fantastic Four. My choice to vote for in this week’s Nerd Fight is the best performance of Sue because -from the beginning of the Fantastic Four in 1961 to 2017 where her book has been canceled, but she lives on in other Marvel adventures- I look at her and I see what exemplifies women: powerful patience, unyielding resolve, and ferocious defense of those they love.

The Best Coffee You’re Not Drinking

Friends, we here at Malice Corp. have a respectable team of booze hounds: as Ben Franklin said, “Beer is proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy.” But we are NERDS, dear reader. Gamers, writers, moviegoers, computer techs, Netflix bingers, artists. Ours is a noble tradition that needs to spread its wings to their fullest everywhere it goes. The humble Java bean also needs representation!

The Best Video Games You’re Not Playing

…a little game from Swedish development team ZOINK!, Stick it to the Man is the platformer to kick Mario right off of his platformer king… uh… platform… if it ever gets the trillion dollar advertising budget that Nintendo has.
