The Splat: 90s Nick is Back, But What’s Missing?

By |October 1st, 2015|Anomalous Musings, Classic TV|

In case you missed the rad news, Nickelodeon is launching an all-night channel (sort of along the lines of Adult Swim on Cartoon Network, if I understand correctly) called The Splat, which will air 90s programming from 10pm to 6am beginning Monday, October 5. That’s 8 glorious hours of awesome childhood memories every night.

At first, the rumors seemed to imply that The Splat would only be showing Nick cartoons of the 90s. But. they’ve finally announced the line-up (in alphabetical order): All That, The Angry Beavers, Are You Afraid of […]

Chris Hardwick Makes Me Feel Funcomfortable

By |September 30th, 2015|Anomalous Musings, Comedy|

My name is KC, and tomorrow is the one day of the year I am not allowed to celebrate my UnBirthday. This day is usually filled with cake, presents, and streamers… sad times. And I am an Anomaly.

Let’s not beat around the bush with fancy introductory paragraphs:

I am a huge fan of Chris Hardwick. I respect him as a comedian; I love his podcast; I’m re-reading his productivity book The Nerdist Way; I’m equal halves, “It’s okay to not like his comedy” and, “How DARE you speak ill of your […]

Another Arm Up Kermit’s Butt: The Muppets Return to TV

By |September 29th, 2015|Anomalous Musings|

The Walt Disney Company, after previous unsuccessful attempts, purchased The Muppets in 2004.  Then for seven years they did absolutely nothing with the franchise, save for releasing some DVDs of The Muppet Show, Muppet Wizard of Oz, and making a few YouTube videos.  Not what I would call a good use of one of my favorite childhood entertainment groups.  This is a comprehensive look at The Muppets through film and television.  For the sake of some kind of brevity, I am sticking to the major motion picture releases and television […]

Anomaly | The Princess Bride, As You Wish

By |September 27th, 2015|Anomalous Musings, Anomaly, Anomaly Supplemental, Book Reviews, Books, Classic Movies, Fantasy, Movie Reviews, Show Notes|

The Princess Bride
Is this a kissing book? No it’s the Princess Bride!! The super quote-able screen classic from the late 80s is a great part of your nerd-tastic upbringing. Whether you saw it for the first time in the theater or just recently became a follower of this comedy/fantasy staple you will love the Anomaly and Anomaly Supplemental Ladies’ take.

I’ll warn you that we absolutely LOVE this movie. We use the words “national treasure” several times. And you know that similar the the Monty Python episode from several years ago […]

Meet the Podcast Hosts

Jen Rhodes
Jen RhodesAnomaly Podcast
In 3rd grade, Jen coaxed the student body into playing “V” during recess. She lead the Visitors as “Diana” until red dust, AKA cherry flavored Kool-Aid mix, ended her reign. Without her leadership, the game ended soon after.

Angela Flournoy
Angela FlournoyAnomaly Podcast
Angela’s first memories include Wrath of Kahn, Return of the Jedi, talking with 4th grade boy scouts about Amazing Stories instead of with girls about whatever 4th grade girls chat about. But she was never a tomboy and thus an Anomaly.
More Info
SueAnomaly Supplemental
The legend goes that Sue’s thirteen-year-old brother didn’t want to baby-sit, so he took infant Sue to “Return of the Jedi”. She watched the film, enraptured, and was carried from the theater with a shiny, new, metaphorical geek card.

KaseyAnomaly Supplemental
Kasey has studied the works not only of Shakespeare, Stoppard, and Sondheim, but also Roddenberry, Whedon, Lucas, and the classic collaborative efforts of comedic geniuses— Pegg and Wright. And she is a gigantic Anomaly.

Geek Girl Podcast & Blog

Anomaly PodcastAnomaly and Anomaly Supplemental are the best podcasts in the verse.  Anomaly is an award winning geek girl show, often featured in the “What’s Hot” section under “TV and Film” within the iTunes store. It was also highlighted by Libsyn Syndication as a “Podcast Luminary”.

From the start, the founders of Anomaly had but one goal in mind: to have fun while sharing their feminine perspectives on all things geek. Created over eight years ago by  Jen and Angela, these two popular podcasts, feature commentary and reviews on sci fi and fantasy books, television, and films. Episode topics also include: gaming, cosplay, convention reportsinterviews, musical theatre, and geek culture.

The term “Anomaly”, as it is used by this geek girl podcast & blog, was originally coined by the founding co-hosts. They use the descriptor to set themselves apart from the stereotypes that are  typically associated with geeks. Anomalies are women who do not allow themselves to be pigeonholed. Anomalies are unique. They are capable women with diverse backgrounds and hobbies. They, as Anomalies, are socially functional fan girls who like their TNG with a side of Project Runway or whatever else is considered “normal”.

This term is reserved for women.  Sorry, men,  you can not have it. You are “Singularities.”  Singularity: the state of being singular, distinct, peculiar, uncommon or unusual. We Anomalies think it sings. Rock on, our atypical brothers, rock on. You, too, are welcome here.
