Ah, November. A time to recover from crazy Halloween parties and hide the kids’ trick-or-treating haul so they don’t eat it all in one go. Depending on where you live, leaves are changing colors, days are getting shorter, and temperatures are dropping like electronic fish. It’s also the opportune time to bust out some favorite tabletop games. Catan, Ticket to Ride, Munchkin, even Risk or Monopoly for those families and friends that enjoy a bit of healthy competition. Gaming in its various forms has always served as a sort of glue to bring people together. It’s a way to spend time together, share experiences, and createRead More →

Darwyn Cooke’s (with Dave Stewart) DC: The New Frontier introduces us to a new incarnation of Wonder Woman. In Chapter 4: Gods and Monsters, we see a newspaper story written by Clark Kent. The article, “Superman and Wonder Woman Ease Suffering for Indo-China” is accompanied by a photograph of Wonder Woman holding a girl waving a flag on her back (Cooke 80). The photograph is captioned, “Wonder Woman: WInning the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised” (Cooke 80). Importantly, the article tells us that “This administration would like to stress that their mission is humanitarian, not military, in nature.” We follow Superman through a battlefieldRead More →

extra life

In early October, I tried to helm a fundraiser in support of the victims of Hurricane Maria.  That project is slow, but I want to highlight another geek who gives.  My friend Teh Jabberwock raises money every year for the Extra Life campaign.  They answered some questions about live-streaming and Extra Life for our audience here at TGE.  Enjoy, and and consider donating to Jabber’s stream on game day: Saturday, Nov 4, 2017! It seems like a pretty big jump to go from being a fan and consumer of video games to regularly live-streaming and becoming a content creator. How did you decide to make that jump? BeforeRead More →

Earlier this year, I started taking sewing lessons. The first day of class, our instructor asked us to give a brief introduction and describe why we decided to learn how to sew. The answers were varied. Some where there to learn how to make clothes for themselves. Many expressed a desire to make clothes that properly fit them well when off the rack clothes so quickly and easily failed to. One woman quilted but didn’t know how to assemble a garment or follow a pattern. One was a high school teacher who wanted the skills to make her more marketable. Apparently, it’s really hard toRead More →

Halloween

Greetings, ladies, gentlemen, and others. A bit of a departure this week from my usual ramblings, in celebration of my favorite holiday: All Hallow’s Eve. Instead of a written piece, The Geek Embassy has granted me the opportunity to present a dramatic reading of a piece penned by one of the great masters of modern ethereal horror: H. P. Lovecraft, and his short story, The Outsider. I will be the first to express bias towards this tale, as it imitates the voice of another famed horror writer, Edgar Allan Poe, a personal favorite of mine. And it is true, Lovecraft is the mind behind Cthulhu, one of theRead More →
