Jennifer Knoch is an Editor for ECW Press in Toronto, Canada (she worked with BBP Editor-In-Chief Andy Burns on his forthcoming book Wrapped In Plastic: Twin Peaks) We asked Jen what she’d recommend for Biff Bam Pop’s Holiday Gift Guide. Here’s what she came up with.
If you’re in a gift-buying panic, take consolation in this: that hard-to-buy-for mother-in-law, boss, teacher, or grandparent is probably a Joni Mitchell fan. Not sure? Do they like music? Art? Trail-blazing women? You’re still set. Think of that scene in Love Actually where Emma Thompson admits Joni “taught your cold British wife how to feel.” (Forget about the cheating and the crying to “Both Sides Now” that followed because there just isn’t enough eggnog to manage that.)
Anyway, here’s the story behind your save-the-day, holiday-hero, can’t-fail gift . . .
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, we’re both a little sick and talking about a few of our favorite Christmas movies, Chris Christie and the Cowboys, the Sony hack attack, and where is South Jersey anyway? See and hear more after the jump.
Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love. This week, BBP contributor Robin Renee talks about Gary Wilson’s You Think You Really Know Me, check it out after the jump.
He’s the King of Comics. A man who left an indelible mark upon the medium, using his peerless imagination to create some of the greatest stories and characters ever told. In 2015, celebrate Jack “King” Kirby’s incredible contribution to comic book history in the monumental, decades-spanning KING-SIZE KIRBY HARDCOVER collection! More after the jump.
Folks who know me know I am a huge David Bowie fan, at every stage of the man’s career. I’ve even reviewed his last effort right here at Biff Bam Pop!. So, for the Bowie fan on your gift list, or if you’re a Bowie fan yourself (and really, who isn’t?), the grandmaster of rock and roll has released a unique new compilation for the holidays – Nothing Has Changed. Check it out after the jump.
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, we’re talking about Mick Foley, his career, and his I Am Santa Claus documentary, also Elf on a Shelf, and the more on the new cat. See and hear more after the jump.
The mid-season finale of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is finally here, and it’s time for one of this series biggest moments to happen – the father and daughter reunion for Skye. And will we also see an Inhumans or Attilan reveal tonight as well? It took the series over a year to finally say the word ‘Kree,’ so I’m not holding my breath. Either way, this episode is the game changer. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “What They Become.”
