Doctor_Horrible_BannerEver wanted to freeze the world, join an evil villain league, and talk to a girl at the Laundromat but your arch nemesis just keeps getting in your way? Dr. Horrible understands. In this 2008 musical comedy, Neil Patrick Harris stars as Dr. Horrible, a truly evil villain out to prove his evilness to everyone. All Horrible really wants is to join the most prestigious society for super villains: the Evil League of Evil. But in order to join the League, he must prove that he's bad enough to join their ranks. And so he hatches a plan: steal some wonderflonium to create a time-stopping freeze ray and take over the world! The only problem? As Horrible is carrying out his super evil scheme, that cute girl from the Laundromat appears. Penny, played by Felicia Day, is a sweet, generous volunteer at the local homeless shelter who comes looking for signatures on a petition to turn a condemned building into a homeless shelter. While Dr. Horrible is distracted he is interrupted yet again, this time by someone much worse: his arch nemesis Captain Hammer. Played by Nathan Fillion, Hammer is a hero with super strength, invulnerability, and an ego to match. Just when he thought that Captain Hammer couldn't get any worse, he steals Dr. Horrible's girl! Not that she was really his girl, but they talked a few times at the Laundromat so it was pretty serious. Now Dr. Horrible has to impress the Evil League of Evil and try to win Penny over. And it will not be an easy feat.

EThos Electric Car Share

Posted on 11 November 2014

It is well known that driving an electric car is much greener and better for the environment than driving a regular car. Tim Prior, owner of the eThos car sharing company, wants to take this a step further by incorporating car sharing (think of this as renting cars). Prior holds a master's degree in urban planning from the University of Wisconsin, enjoys spending time looking at maps and reading zoning codes, and most people would call him a "car guy". Prior said, "The quickest, simplest solution to me is the electric vehicle. There are more outlets in the world than gas stations."

When the beloved president of Kershaw University died, the faculty fell into a state of worry. Their pet projects were coming under more scrutiny than they had ever imagined. From the secret army project to create soldiers who did not need sleep to research in the lifestyle of laboratory rats, no laboratory was safe from the prying eyes of newly-instituted president Mark Winner. However, this is only the beginning of the problems at Kershaw. Scheming professors, a scandal that nearly closed the medical school, and so much more have the potential to damage the reputation of a university that is only beginning to turn itself around.

Neighbors

"Neighbors" cannot be described as anything short of terrible. The acting was bad and the script was worse. Seth Rogen was not any better than usual, and yes, Zac Efron has a nice face, but this movie did not do much for his acting career. Rose Byrne and Dave Franco also appear, but they do little for the movie. The plot, two new parents move in next to a frat house, was questionable to begin with and did not do the movie any favors. Like a lot of movies these days, the trailer pretty much included all of the remotely funny parts, which meant the actual movie was quite disappointing.

Lordi - Scare Force One

LO_SFO-C_1500x1500SCARE FORCE ONE: The title track, "Scare Force One," is a fast blend of classic metal and Halloween, perfect for a band like Lordi, who don bloody masks, horns, and chains on stage. "Scare Force One" relies on a creepy, unique riff to blend each section, though it sticks to its classic metal roots: straight, driving chords; synth backings; full, stadium vocals on the chorus. While the chorus has a happy tinge, the rest of the song makes up for it with a creepy, "scary" vibe, which seems to be Lordi's forté.

Coffee cake is a delicious treat and tasty snack and it can always pass as a socially acceptable breakfast food even though it is just cake. Maybe not the best way to reassure mothers who are worried about breakfast eating habits but what they do not know will not kill them! So enjoy this lovely cake that is so tasty that the next one might already be in the oven before the first has even disappeared completely. Whether it is being consumed with coffee, like the name suggests, or with hot chocolate, tea or milk, no matter what it is sure to be devoured far more quickly than you would have liked.

Bojack Horseman

bhorse"For some people life is one giant kick in the urethra." This quote proves to be a defining portrayal of Netflix's new original series Bojack Horseman. Cleared for its second season almost immediately, it's an adult animated comedy by Bob Waksberg that follows the fictional, semi-famous, 90's sitcom star from "Horsing Around," Bojack Horseman, as he struggles to deal with his muddled spiral into unimportance. Voiced by Will Arnett, each thirty-minute episode covers Bojack's often drunken escapades through a Hollywood where humanoid animals and mankind live in perfect ignorance. Bojack, an anthropomorphic horse, lives with his freeloading houseguest Todd, voiced by Aaron Paul (yes, from "Breaking Bad"), in an upper class abode in the Hollywood hills. While not in a drunken stupor Bojack is struggling to write his memoir with the help of his ghostwriter Diane, voiced by Alison Brie, and his agent/girlfriend Princes Caroline, a cat voiced by Amy Sedaris. These characters along with Bojack's happy go lucky nemesis Mr. Peanutbutter, Paul F. Tompkins, provide the basis for story development, character growth, and, of course, the enormous amounts comedy.

While it is never pleasant to be dumped, high school student Colin Singleton has a relationship history to rival even the nastiest of breakups. Beginning with his first girlfriend in the fourth grade, Colin has dated a total of 19 girls named Katherine—and unfortunately been dumped by every single one. When Katherine VIV (also known as K-19) breaks his heart, Colin sets out on a road trip of self-reflection to escape his sheltered town, analyze his relationship history, and just maybe figure out why "the Katherines" are ruling his life. Written from Colin's perspective and alternating between his past and present experiences, John Green's "An Abundance of Katherines" is a hilarious and light-hearted read guaranteed to appeal to the heart of any math and science nerd.

The Maze Runner

The_Maze_Runner_poster"The Maze Runner" is based on the best-selling young adult novel by James Dashner. Like so many movies before it, it is distinctly about a dystopian future, think along the lines of "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent", although that is not revealed until the end of the movie. Like many movies based on books, "The Maze Runner" does not always accurately reflect the book that it is based off of. That's probably to be expected, it's rare these days that a movie really encapsulates the book it is based on.

Pumpkin Pie

Nothing says fall quite like a tasty piece of pumpkin pie. Halloween tends to bring out pumpkins sitting on people's front steps, and fall in general brings out pumpkin flavored everything. But there is nothing quite so traditional as eating a piece of pumpkin pie while wearing a scarf and probably some hot chocolate, coffee or tea in a mug nearby. Whether or not it is a tradition or brings back nostalgia, or even if you have never had it before, it is a great treat any day. It seems weird that we cook up what is technically a vegetable into a delicious sweet pie but there is no arguing that it is a phenomenal creation. Brace yourself for the icy winter that is surely coming and eat some pie and enjoy the lovely fall weather.
