Review: Pacfic Rim (2013)

Review by me (Beth Matthews) of the new Guillermo del Toro Giant Robots vs. Giant Monsters film: PACIFIC RIM. I quite like it. 🙂

Short synopsis? Giant robots vs. Giant monsters

Slightly longer synopsis? (taken from imdb.com) “As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures [ed. Kaiju] wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon [ed. Jaeger] in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.”

Monday Video: Productivity

Just a quick 3-minute video about the science of productivity. I was interested to realize I’ve already, unknowingly, implemented some of these strategies with my writing. And, yeah, they do work! 🙂

Monday Video: Fun with Paper!

Today’s Monday video is not particularly “geeky” or “nerdy” per se. But it is so very cool. So I suggest you watch it anyway.
