About Cerberus Rex:
Cerberus Rex is an hour and a half long audio adventure, presented entirely through dialogue, sound effects and music (no narrator). The list of influences is long but a few of the bigger ones are John Carpenter, Shane Black and H.P. Lovecraft. The action influences are Cameron, Spielberg and McTiernan.
In Cerberus Rex, Dr. Anabela Correia, an astrophysics professor at Hawksmoor University, travels upon request by a former colleague to Well Station, a research facility performing experiments on a strange phenomenon in an underground cave. A natural explorer, Ana rushes to view the oddity first-hand and, accompanied by Well Station Security/Containment Officer Benjamin Wyngarde, is soon staring down at a mystery of physics hidden deep. Then… not so deep.

Mike Gaiss from zeitgaiss.com has an Etsy shop with original artwork available as stickers, Christmas ornaments, and magnets for sale. I was offered the above samples to review. These four-inch Luke and Boba Fett ornaments are printed on matte photo paper and laminated on front and back. They are signed by the artist. And hole punched, with the hook included.
I like the Luke one, but the Boba Fett is really great artwork. They’d look really nice on a ceramic ornament. These are going on my tree dedicated just to Star Wars.
The first top I tried was the Star Wars Force Varsity Ladies’ Lace-Up Hoodie.
I wasn’t sure if the sizes were a slim/Juniors fit or regular ladies sizes. So, I got one size larger, and it was a perfect fit. It’s a relaxed fit, and by far the softest sweatshirt I’ve ever owned! I LOVE this one.
This is a soft, thin t-shirt material that looks and feels great. Again, just order a size larger than your regular women’s size, if you like a relaxed fit. It’s definitely not as small as some junior’s sizing. On the back it has “The Last Jedi” written out. The cut out v-neck is not hemmed, but looks like it was just cut. It may not last through too many washes unless on the gentle cycle.
Lastly, I got a sweater that I’ll be wearing to Christmas festivities…
So, the mid-season finale of Star Trek: Discovery (lovingly referred to as DISCO now, thanks to some awesome crew shirts) has aired. And fans have to wait almost 2 months for the next episode. Time to ponder, rehash, and theorize on possible plot twists. If you haven’t seen episode 9 yet, don’t read any further. And I highly recommend watching CBS All Access’ After Trek as well.
I have absolutely loved this season so far. The characters have depth and are completely unpredictable. They seem more human and fallible. The actors are incredible. The sets and special effects are summer blockbuster-worthy. It seems bigger and better than just a TV show. And the writing has been exceptional, as each episode seems to get better. Each episode begs to be discussed and dissected.
This isn’t Roddenberry’s bright utopia… yet. The crew of the Discovery NCC-1031 (hint to Section 31?) is led by Captain Lorca, a mysterious man with a past that begs to be told. And the ship holds an unique, new technology for travel.
There are so many shocking plot twists and mysteries, that fan theories are inevitable. And a whole lot of fun. One that sticks out the most to me is Lorca’s obsession with Michael and her safety. My guess is that he knew her parents or had something to do with what happened to them on that station decimated by Klingons.
I love reading other fan’s theories as well. I suspected Ash Tyler was more than just a Klingon prisoner with PTSD as soon as he was introduced. But the best and most talked about theory right now is best explained here and here. Tyler is most likely Voq in disguise. Voq’s absence from the show lines up when Tyler showed up. He’s most likely a sleeper spy with plans to steal the Discovery technology. And I can’t wait to see what happens with Lorca’s tribble when Tyler enter’s his ready room.
The last episode also left us with a major cliffhanger, as the Discovery arrives in an unknown destination after Lorca messes with the jump coordinates just as the spore drive initiates. Did you catch this detail? I didn’t, as so much was already going on. I plan on a re-watch of the season soon, to catch more details. After all, the series has been full of easter eggs, especially in the Captain’s “museum.”
Did the ship arrive in a different quadrant? A different time? A different (Mirror?) universe? January can’t come soon enough.
I love reading fan theories. Star Trek certainly has the most intelligent fan base. The comments in some of the articles I’ve read are better than the articles in reference to science, canon, and minute details.

And check out this behind the scenes look at HEWLOGRAM with writer/director Aharon Rabinowitz and star David Hewlett:
Red Giant released “Hewlogram,” the newest Red Giant film starring David Hewlett, best known for his role as Dr. Rodney McKay in “Stargate: Atlantis.” The new film comes out alongside the release of Red Giant Universe 2.2, the latest update to Red Giant’s ever-expanding collection of GPU-accelerated plugins for editors and motion graphics artists.
“Hewlogram”: A Completely Believable Plot Line for a 1980s Sci-Fi Buddy Cop TV ShowKnown for fun and clever short films that manage to entertain while showing off Red Giant visual effects and motion graphics tools, Red Giant’s newest film is no different from classics like “Old/New” and “Plot Device.” Written and directed by Aharon Rabinowitz, in his directorial debut, “Hewlogram” was born out of both Aharon’s love for holograms and David Hewlett’s love of visual effects tutorials. Hewlett, who is part of the all-star cast of Guillermo Del Toro’s forthcoming film, “The Shape of Water,” discovered Red Giant software through a bit of internet sleuthing.
The new horror/thriller Aliens: Zone of Silence will be available on-demand throughout the world October 24, 2017. Distributor Gravitas Ventures is releasing Aliens: Zone of Silence on over 100 cable and digital platforms, including Comcast, Cox, Dish Network, and Verizon Fios, in addition to Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo on Demand, and Vudu.
