I took so few photos of other cosplayers this year because all my costumes had gloves, but these were my faves!

The Fallout cosplayer was best of all. He was just wandering around playing his radio (the soundtrack/game radio, of course). When my husband and I went to compliment him, he reached into a pouch on his belt and gave us each a super grimy nuka cola cap. It was one of our fave moments of the entire con.

If you know them, please tell me so I can credit! <3




If it happened to Doug Funnie in a cartoon, there’s a good chance that it happened to Doug creator Jim Jinkins in real life. Hector discovers that from a crush on a girl named Patty to the torment of a bully named Roger to the superhero fantasies of Quail Man, no cartoon in Nick history is drawn more from the life of its creator than Doug.

Listen on:

Thanks to Jim for joining us!

Keep up with our intrepid host Hector on Twitter and Instagram. And stay tuned to NickAnimation25 for next week’s episode with the Sponge himself, voice actor Tom Kenny!


Preps for the apocalypse:

•A Weapon. Whether it be a knife or gun, you will always need a weapon on you.
•Salt. Put it on your windows, pockets, food, etc. Bathe in the crap.
•Iron. Don’t have any? Ohh the irony… We’ll find some!
•Paint. Needed for protective symbols and such.
•A partenter. Someone one else to help you. Trust me. You need them.
Shelter. AVOID MAJOR CITIES. BAD IDEA. Half of the population will be possessed. Go in and loot later.
•Non-refrigerated food.
•Somewhere to get water, when you run out. Notice I said when, not if.
•Walkie talkies. Don’t get separated but in case.
•Holy water, a bible and water guns. Use the bible to learn how to make the water holy, then put it in the water gun.
•First aid. ALOT OF KITS.

Add on as needed. If you take regular medication. This is a reminder to take it now, and make sure you are filled for the upcoming apocalypse. Now, for some exorcisms.

The most detailed exorcisms we’ve seen used in Supernatural so far are the ones that Sam uses in the season 3 episode ‘Jus in Bello’ - there were three exorcisms used in that episode:

Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus, omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio infernalis adversarii, omnis legio, omnis congregatio et secta diabolica
(This was the first exorcism)

Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus, omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio infernalis adversarii, omnis legio, et secta diabolica,
Ergo draco maledicte et sectio
Ergo draco maledicte et legio secta diabolica
Ut Ecclésiam tuam secúra tibi fácias servire libertáte, te rogámus, audi nos.
(This was the exorcism for Agent Henrickson)

Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus, omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio infernalis adversarii, omnis legio, omnis congregatio et secta diabolica

Ergo, draco maledicte et omnis legio diabolica, adjuramus te,
cessa decipere humanas creaturas, eisque æternæ perditionìs venenum propinare
Vade, satana, inventor et magister omnis fallaciæ, hostis humanæ salutis,
Humiliare sub potenti manu Dei, contremisce et effuge, invocato a nobis sancto et terribili Nomini
quem inferi tremunt
Ab insidiis diaboli, libera nos, Domine.

Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus, omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio infernalis adversarii, omnis legio, omnis congregatio et secta diabolica

Ergo, draco maledicte et omnis legio diabolica, adjuramus te … cessa decipere humanas creaturas, eisque æternæ perditionìs venenum propinare

Ut Ecclesiam tuam secura tibi facias libertate servire, te rogamus, audi nos.
(This is from the mass exorcism at the end)

Here is the official English translation of a Rite of Exorcism - though I don’t think the full exorcism was used in Supernatural only bits of it:

I cast you out, unclean spirit, along with every Satanic power of the enemy, every spectre from hell, and all your fell companions; in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Begone and stay far from this creature of God. For it is He who commands you, He who flung you headlong from the heights of heaven into the depths of hell. It is He who commands you, He who once stilled the sea and the wind and the storm. Hearken, therefore, and tremble in fear, Satan, you enemy of the faith, you foe of the human race, you begetter of death, you robber of life, you corrupter of justice, you root of all evil and vice; seducer of men, betrayer of the nations, instigator of envy, font of avarice, fomentor of discord, author of pain and sorrow. Why, then, do you stand and resist, knowing as you must that Christ the Lord brings your plans to nothing? Fear Him, who in Isaac was offered in sacrifice, in Joseph sold into bondage, slain as the paschal lamb, crucified as man, yet triumphed over the powers of hell. Begone, then, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Give place to the Holy Spirit by this sign of the holy cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.

Therefore, I adjure you every unclean spirit, every spectre from hell, every satanic power, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who was led into the desert after His baptism by John to vanquish you in your citadel, to cease your assaults against the creature whom He has, formed from the slime of the earth for His own honor and glory; to quail before wretched man, seeing in him the image of almighty God, rather than his state of human frailty. Yield then to God, who by His servant, Moses, cast you and your malice, in the person of Pharaoh and his army, into the depths of the sea. Yield to God, who, by the singing of holy canticles on the part of David, His faithful servant, banished you from the heart of King Saul. Yield to God, who condemned you in the person of Judas Iscariot, the traitor. For He now flails you with His divine scourges, He in whose sight you and your legions once cried out: “What have we to do with you, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Have you come to torture us before the time?” Now He is driving you back into the everlasting fire, He who at the end of time will say to the wicked: “Depart from me, you accursed, into the everlasting fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.” For you, 0 evil one, and for your followers there will be worms that never die. An unquenchable fire stands ready for you and for your minions, you prince of accursed murderers, father of lechery, instigator of sacrileges, model of vileness, promoter of heresies, inventor of every obscenity.

Depart, then, impious one, depart, accursed one, depart with all your deceits, for God has willed that man should be His temple. Why do you still linger here? Give honor to God the Father almighty, before whom every knee must bow. Give place to the Lord Jesus Christ, who shed His most precious blood for man. Give place to the Holy Spirit, who by His blessed apostle Peter open

Good luck out there.

Dear Man, do you think a Man can or should read romantic novels, especially those written by women? It seems from my experience that many men rather disdain things they perceive to be "feminine" or "for women," and if they do do those things, they're certainly not admitting it. Why do they feel that way and what is your opinion on it? --Curious Romance Reader

Dear Curious,

We all know what romantic novels are: stultifying tales of boring female matters–relationships, friendships, and unrealistic depictions of men as champions. But even a Man as certain of his answers as I am can surely open his mind long enough to slam it shut.

Yes, my readers–I, a Man, read a romantic novel. The novel in question was a modern book, published in 1879. It was entitled “Her World against a Lie: a Romance,” and the author was Florence Marryat. 

Men, having undertaken the reading of this novel myself, I beseech you: Do not under any circumstances read romantic novels.

You are far better off believing that women read romantic novels to sigh over unrealistically handsome, charming depictions of men. By all means, retain your innocence on this front. In fact, stop reading now, because I am about to describe the shocking heart of what lies in women’s breasts.

This book starts off with the character Hephzibah Horton–an unmarried woman of some forty years who shows no wish to correct that state, and indeed, supports herself in style through her writing, and admonishes others with things like: “What else can you expect when you put yourself in the power of a man?”

Now, we are all familiar with the figure of the ludicrous, sad, embittered man-hater, gracing many the pages of a fine novel. But Miss Horton is not ridiculous, nor is she embittered; in fact, she makes the men around her look ridiculous. More importantly, the book itself–centering around the trials of one Mrs. Delia Moray–explains in great detail how women in bad situations (according to the book, almost all marriages)–can get free of them by making use of the legal system. It reads as half fiction/half guide for all oppressed women.

I had expected an optimistic, shiny tale wherein a woman was saved from certain disgrace by a man. Instead, I got a gritty tale of a woman beaten by a drunkard who was saved by other women.

In the end, Miss Horton does marry, as one expects of such a genre–but she retains her own name and chooses a husband she may henpeck.

Even I, an Actual Man, quailed before this romantic novel. All you lesser specimens out there might actually perish.

Men: Take my advice and avoid these at all costs.

Sincerely yours,
Stephen Shaughnessy
Traumatized Man


I didn’t like the original Ghostbusters much, and when I heard there was going to be a reboot, I kind of shrugged and went, meh. That is, right up until I heard it was a gender flipped reboot, and then I knew I was going, no matter how bad it looked.

That is basically what the current state of sexism in media has brought me to – going to a remake of a film I didn’t like, starring comediennes I’m not a fan of, just to see a bunch of women on the screen, with the vague hope that paying my money will mean there’s more of it in future.

Luckily for me, that was one of my better decisions, as it turns out. :)

The short version of this review is that I was expecting not to like it, and ended up thoroughly entertained. This is not a deep movie, but the characters are likeable, it has enough laughs that it actually works as a comedy, and I didn’t once feel time lag as I was watching. It’s fresh and fun and I recommend it as an enjoyable popcorn movie. 

A longer review with spoilers under the cut.

I was rereading John Buchan’s GREENMANTLE* (published 1916) for the first time since I was a teen and discovered this passage, which I completely missed before.

This is the part where the bold and crafty British spy discovers that it’s worse than he suspected. His nemesis is a cruel German military man, that he knew. But now he quails: this man has a pretty drawing room.

Anything could happen.
