Ash & Fern: My Perfect Vacation

1 Submitted by on Fri, 16 October 2015, 08:59
A few weeks ago I took a vacation that wasn’t planned around soccer for the first time in over four years. When I was planning my activities, I kept being surprised when I didn’t have to plan for post-game hangovers. In my experience, there are two main kinds of vacation people. First, you have the “Oh my God I have to Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: Dragon Con Memories

0 Submitted by on Wed, 09 September 2015, 08:59
Another Dragon Con has come and gone. As anyone who takes a yearly trip knows, it’s a bit terrifying how quickly the year between them goes by, but I’m also glad because it really is the most fun I have all year. For me, Dragon Con is always full of memorable moments. So for once I decided to sit down Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: HBO Goes Sci-Fi

0 Submitted by on Fri, 14 August 2015, 07:59
So I guess I’ve been busy. As a sad result of working two jobs all summer, I’m way behind on my entertainment news (and my blogging, I know) and I was completely unaware of the fact that HBO is going sci-fi with Westworld! I don’t know a thing about the source material for Westworld other than what a quick trip down Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: One Night Stand

1 Submitted by on Thu, 23 July 2015, 08:59
My love for the art of binge-watching is no secret. Since finally succumbing to Netflix almost a year ago (maybe I should throw us an anniversary party? This is by far my most successful relationship…) I have become quite the connoisseur of the lost weekend. There is something so satisfying about being able to finish a season, or even a Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: Is Anyone Winning the Game?

It took me several days to calm down enough from the Game of Thrones finale to even contemplate what I had seen. Now that I’ve calmed a bit, I’m excited to look forward for the first time having absolutely no idea where the story is going. This will be a bit spoiler-filled for anyone who isn’t caught up on the Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: Fern’s Dirty Thirty

0 Submitted by on Tue, 02 June 2015, 12:59
In a lot of ways I’m basically already an old person. I go to bed at a reasonable hour most days. I can’t sleep past 8:00 a.m. I eat leftovers because I can’t stand to waste food. I recycle, and yell at other people about recycling. I complain about neighbors making too much noise. And it’s probably only my lack of Continue Reading...

When a Show is on Life Support

4 Submitted by on Wed, 06 May 2015, 13:01
Any science fiction or fantasy fan knows the pain of a show cancelled too soon. The Firefly example is so often cited it’s cliché, but it’s not the only show that we’ve lost before its time. Some, like Battlestar Galactica, get enough of a warning that they can wrap things up with a final season. Others, like Stargate: Universe, leave Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: Historical Reality?

1 Submitted by on Fri, 03 April 2015, 09:01
You may have caught on to this little tidbit from my incessant mentions of Spartacus (seriously, you should watch it), but I love historical fiction. I love books, movies, games, and of course especially TV. At this point I know if I see a preview for a new show and the characters are wearing armor or speaking with an unidentifiable Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: Real Houses and Paper Towns

0 Submitted by on Fri, 20 March 2015, 15:01
I have been really quiet lately here at Ash & Fern, but I’ve been very busy personally. We just bought a house! We’re still working towards the closing date later this spring, but I’ve already given myself carpal tunnel from signing my name to so many items. While the “adult” things of buying a house can be kind of a Continue Reading...

Ash & Fern: It’s a Binge-Worthy World

0 Submitted by on Thu, 05 March 2015, 08:01
Last weekend everyone with a pulse was watching House of Cards. By Saturday afternoon at least 80% of my Facebook and Twitter feeds were people posting about what food they were binging on while binge watching. And yes, at least half of those people also made a clever joke about binging and binging. Hours of fun.     Why wasn’t Continue Reading...
