About Author

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment. You can follow him on Twitter @MajorSpoilers and tell him your darkest secrets...


  1. I don’t want to sound like a stereotype but I usually unplug frim the world, retreat somewhere dark and cozy with a good book or tv show and a cat within arms reach. Chocolate is a good addition but optional.

  2. Watching something that is just pure fun, like old Power Rangers, most Japanese Tokusatsu media (Godzilla, Super Sentai, etc.) or other shows or movies. Not something boring, but something with just enough of a plot to keep me interested, but not so much that I have to think it over too much.

    Reading or playing certain video games (particularly those where you can just mindlessly “grind” for some experience or a little extra currency between storylines or big bosses) also helps. It takes just enough focus to help clear my head by holding my attention, but not so much that it drains me.

  3. My greatest stress relief is my dog. Nothing like a long walk in the country with her to regain perspective

    When the Massachusetts weather is behaving, I like to sit in a lawn chair in my backyard with a trade paperback and zone out. Also, writing reviews for Major Spoilers (#CheapPlug) :)
