9 fictional jobs we'd like to have that would really suck

So, it’s fall, and that means for some of you it’s time to decide which college you’re going to and what your major is going to be and all this other stuff about what you’re going to do with your life for the rest of eternity. Personally, when I was that age, I wanted to be a rock star, or a time-space witch. Here’s a roundup of our favorite (more or less fictional) career choices from literature, television and film; we’ll break it down for you why each job is fantastic, and why you probably would want to avoid it anyway.

The Fandom Wars: Round 2

The Fandom Wars - round 2We’re finally at Round 2, despite GISHWHES kicking my ass completely and totally; my apologies to everyone who was waiting for Round 2. I guess I should think twice before taking on the fandoms AND Misha Collins at the same time! (Or, as my phone likes to call him, Misha Collision.) Anyway, I hope everyone is ready for Round 2; it’s going to be a little gnarly.

The Fandom Wars: It Begins…

3 Chic Geeks Fandom Wars master post

Once upon a time, there was a trickster god that happened to be a blogger. With your luck, that trickster god happened to be Freak Geek (who, if you are just tuning in, is convinced she is Loki), and that “once upon a time”? Yeah, um, that’s like… now. Anyway, it was the middle of August, and no game was afoot; the pantheon of bloggers that presides over 3 Chic Geeks was bored. So, the Trickster God Freak Geek said, “Hey, remember how we had a Ship War back in March? Let’s have another war now, for fandoms. It’ll be fun. It’ll be bloody.” And so… here it is.

IMG_2869

I assume that you, dear reader, are a responsible adult who definitely never impulse buys things with superheroes on them with no clear plan as to how you will use said Tony Stark covered impulse buy. Dear reader, you surely never wander into a Michaels with a clear plan of action and set list of necessary items only to find yourself drawn to a rack of Avengers themed something. I can only hope that you never find yourself eagerly grabbing said something and saying aloud, “No, but I need this.” while throwing it into your cart only to watch your purchase sit in a junk drawer for years.

Oh, you do this too? That’s good, I have a solution for you based on my most recent impulse buy totally adult decision.

Review: Iron Man 3

Note: Here there be spoilers for Iron Man 3 and minor spoilers for other Avengerverse movies. Read on at your own risk. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Let’s face it. Iron Man was great. Iron Man 2 could have used a little something more. The Avengers was pretty darn awesome. So, of course, fans of Tony Stark everywhere were excited for Iron Man 3, hoping for a movie that was at least as good as the first. I personally didn’t have particular expectations for the third Iron Man movie – all I wanted was some sexy supersuit action, some badass new tech, Tony Stark being Tony Stark, and a clear, concise plot that wasn’t too contrived. To my surprise, Iron Man 3 turned out to be so much better and so much more than anything I expected.
