Still, day early or not, I'm going to do my best to get you in the h ... More >>

Just because it's summer doesn't mean we can't all sit indoors and consume entertainment.

Kumail Nanjiani isn't exactly your typical comedian. Where most spend their time complaining about things they hate, Nanjiani attacks the things he loves, which happens to be activities of a decidedly nerdy persuasion: Videogames, horror and science fiction all have a place in his routine. Yo ... More >>
The art of stealing art is a long lasting one -- since the dawn of the civilized era, people have been copping other people's ideas and running with them. On some levels, there's no real shame in it, but when stealing is turned into a profitable business, things start to get a bit wonky. Toda ... More >>
Denver is finally starting to show signs of spring, which means one thing: We need a variety of media that simulates real outdoor activities so we don't actually have to leave the house at any point. Thankfully, Tiger Woods is still somehow a spokesman for a golf game, some new books are comi ... More >>
We've got a pretty stellar selection of new releases this week that cover a wide array of different interests.
