If I were single and looking for Mr. Right, I'd never leave the house without a cool T-shirt. It gives folks an easy way to connect with me. One look and you've got a good excuse to start a conversation.
My mother was a sci-fi enthusiast, who successfully transmitted the virus to me, via Star Trek, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and the more obscure television program, In Search of... (ellipses intended).
I've noticed a deep and disturbing trend: a massive confusion in U.S. culture over the word love. The truth is, we toss the word around in many different ways. Most of them are unhelpful. Some are downright destructive.
There's no one in the non-Arnold Terminator cast who is as strong as any of Cruise's compatriots and adversaries in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.
There's plenty of great literature about infidelity. But there's a whole lot of not-so-great literature as well. It's a basic fall-back plot device for just about everyone who wants to write a novel. And I say enough.
Thanks to the Internet, finding and researching doctors is a lot easier than it use to be. Today, there's a wide variety of websites you can turn to that provide databases of U.S. doctors, their professional medical histories, and ratings and reviews from past patients on a number of criteria.
There are plenty of film festivals scattered across North America, including a number devoted to silent film. The Denver Silent Film Festival, Kansas Silent Film Festival, and Toronto Silent Film Festival have all made their mark in recent years.
There's a terrific comic-book sensibility to this film, which is high praise for the work of a seventy-year-old man. In contrast to that other George, I feel like this movie -- with its blood, sweat and gears -- is the proper spiritual sequel to the original Star Wars.

I first got hooked on "Doctor Who" as a teenager in the '70s, but stopped watching as I got older. When I recently checked the 2010 season out of the library, I quickly got sucked right back in. I've got plenty of catching up to do, since the show has been running for decades.
There was some heartening news over the holidays for those of us who are longtime Star Trek fans. And there was some alarming news, none of which has been mitigated since.
And given that 'Maleficent' is now the highest grossing live-action film that Angelina Jolie has ever starred in, it's clear that these late-in-the-game changes that Robert Stromberg, Joe Roth and John Lee Hancock did right by that A-lister. Though Peter Capaldi has a very different opinion.
To celebrate this meeting of two larger-than-life characters, I present my second Huffington Post Christmas in Who-ville Gift Guide. Whether you're buying for yourself or your favorite companion, what follows are perfect goodies for Whovians.
