She writes: “I was a founding editor of, where I’m probably best known for my reviews of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and The Last Airbender. Or my super detailed look at the making of Mork and Mindy. Or for my Game of Thrones recaps.  Or for my writing advice columns. Or my in-depth investigation of people who claim HIV doesn’t cause AIDS. Or my geeky articles about topics like the search for a cure for cancer, or how Leonard Nimoy changed everything, or how the TV show Star Blazers helped me deal with being bullied. Or just generally being an obnoxious loud-mouth.”
