The Network Roundup: It's time to dance

This was a week full of amazing news, broken hearts, and broken records. Everything pales in comparison to the record set in Japan yesterday, The Synchronized Mascot Dancing record. What yo...

The Network Roundup: All hail the King

Today we honor the life of the late, great, Martin Luther King Jr. Besides giving many of us a day home from the office, we look back at a man that pioneered the African American Civil Rights Movement, and all helped changed...

The Network Roundup: Sorry, no Death Star

Leave it to the government to stomp on the American dream. The dream of our very own fully operational Death Star. The people of America took their voice to the Obama administration, about the need for a $850,000,00...

The Network Roundup: What's your resolution?

Just look at those calendars, 2013. Isn't it such a futuristic sounding number? I guess so many sci-fi things I love always had the dates of 2012, making 2013 sound so far away. Along with a snazzy new date stamp comes the an...

The Network Roundup: Let's Lotto

If went to any kind of day job in the States today, your conversations probably included a mention of tonight's interstate Powerball drawing. Clocking in at a sweet $550 million, the little gamble was too much ...

The Network Roundup: The Jaws of love

That uncanny sense of dread that's been hanging over you can only mean one thing, it's Shark Week. I think the only other time I get this excited about salt-water based news, is when Red Lobster kicks off its Endless Shrimp p...

The Network Roundup: What's my name?

Once known as Calvin Broadus, Snoop Dogg should now be referred to as Snoop Lion. I don't know enough about Mr. Lion to tell you why he decided to hold onto the Snoop portion of his name, or if he will next be Mountain Snoop ...

The Network Roundup: Three-peat

People like to like things in sets of threes, perhaps it's just a tidy little number. Movies are especially prone to follow the trilogy experience, particularly after they are successful. Who cam...

The Network Roundup: Let the games begin

Today kicked off the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. The world's best and brightest will take part in a test of will, strength, courage, and ability! I however, will be testing the diffe...

The Network Roundup: True Bloody good

I had the pleasure of checking out Christopher Nolan's fantastic end to the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises this weekend. Forget what you heard, it's great. However, it's not what's sticking out as the entertainmen...

The Network Roundup: Tentacle Love

Been wondering where your Network Roundup had wandered off to? Japan Expo in Paris, France to be exact. Anime, manga, and video games action aplenty, and of course, cool French people, and like minded comradery. I couldn't pa...

The Network Roundup: Sorry it's not the future

Despite all the pictures floating around Facebook and Twitter, today was is not the date that Doc Brown had set for the DeLorean in Back to the Future. None of your friends share the Photpshopped image above to you? Count you...

The Network Roundup: Write faster

Thought you were done with Game of Thrones roundups? I thought we were going to take a bit of a break until next season's news started rolling in, but I couldn't help but share with you, a song about what we all were th...

The Network Roundup: Case closed

Last night wrapped up the second, and I assume final season of AMC's The Killing. I didn't know what to think of the show at first, but man, I loved that show. Classic murder/ mystery with a super gritty Twin Peaks vibe, topp...

The Network Roundup: Bite me

Last night celebrated True Blood's highly anticipated return to glorious premium TV service. After the doozy that was last season, I have to admit that last night's episode was pretty darn entertaining. Ma...

The Network Roundup: Sci-fi me

It was both an exciting and somber week of science fiction for me. As my dear Game of Thrones was wrapping up its season I turn my eyes from fantasy fiction, over to my all time love, science fiction. I had a chance to check ...

The Network Roundup: The E3 effect

I know some of you haven't been too impressed with E3's offerings this year, but all the gaming activity and interest gets me really excited. Sometimes when we only see a glimpse of possibilities, and not the f...

For this edition of The Network Roundup, I am making a public plea. No more zombie bath salts jokes! For the last couple days I haven't been able to get on the train, go to work, or especially enter social media without someo...

The Network Roundup: Smoke on the water

Woe is me. Only one more episode left of this season's Game of Thrones, but last week's sure delivered. After all the build up I was wondering how they would employ the deadly Wild Fire on screen. I loved it, in all...

The Network Roundup: Oh my goth

I'm not sure if it made a blip on your radar or not, but yesterday was World Goth Day. In high school I fancied quite a few bands that might be considered goth at the time, and maybe wore my eyeliner on the heavy side. These ...
