Greetings Geeks! Today, I have a recording of our recent panel at Rose City Comic Con for your listening and geeking out pleasure. This is the third time we have presented this topic but each time is different, largely because we depend so much on audience participation. Because come on. The best panels let YOU speak. Am I right or am I right? RCCC Audiences Rock The audience at RCCC was engaged and engaging. They knew a lot about fairy tales from the very start of the panel which is  not how it has gone for us in the past. Usually, I pose the questionRead More →

motor crush

Motor Crush Rush Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing three comic book hotshots at Rose City Comic Con. Fortune favored me and I got a chance to talk to Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, And Babs Tarr about their latest offering from Image Comics: Motor Crush. When I went through the list of books available for interview, Motor Crush raced to the top because the premise seemed so unique and inherently feminist. Domino Swift is a woman of color competing in the dangerous world of moto racing. She lives her life perched between the official racing world, and dangerous street racing where she competesRead More →

Greetings Adventurers! We return again to the depths of the Vastwood and find our characters traveling back toward civilization. Nictis Loath travels with our merry band of adventurers. As you’ll remember from episode 8, we discovered Nictis the only living person among a community of powerful mage ghosts. Nictis berates our characters with questions about every living thing. Having not been around other living people, his excitement is understandable even if a little on the annoying side. The group also discovers that Nictis might be a little more powerful than they originally expected. Will this help or hinder their experience? Check out the episode andRead More →

watches

TGE Watches Wonder Woman Summer continues and the biggest summer movie of the year is the feature on the latest episode of TGE Watches!* <do doo dut do> Wonder Woman! <do doo dut do> But seriously folks, this summer’s Wonder Woman movie has been the topic of much debate and discussion all over the internets. As a long time fan with a very serious personal connection to Wonder Woman, I’ll be the first to admit that I was worried how well my favorite Amazon princess might be treated on the big screen. I’m thankful for the outcome. As usual, we discuss the movie in great detail.Read More →

guardians

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 The Geek Embassy starts a new series: Watches. Every month, Mark, Ryan, and I will share our thoughts and critiques of some summer blockbuster movies. We launch the series with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 because of course. We start out our discussion with initial impressions which come back favorable. Ryan mentions the concern that the movie might become the “Baby Groot Show” and how the clever intro sequence put those concerns to rest. From there we spend some time talking about what we love about the movie (a lot) and what we disliked (not much). We wereRead More →

harry potter house

Come on, admit it. You’ve taken a Harry Potter house quiz or two. It’s a great geeky time killer at the very least. This month, we decided to take a few quizzes and compare results. Isabela, Evan, and I have lots of opinions about all things Harry Potter, not just the house definitions and meanings. We open with a brief discussion of Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child to kick off our discussion. I get all the names wrong. All of them. For those who might not be as well versed in the Hogwarts houses, summaries of each house (taken from the Harry Potter Wiki):Read More →

pleasures

Guilty pleasures! We had a great time at this hangout. First we discuss what makes something a guilty pleasure. We decided it’s often something you don’t talk much about, you generally don’t tell your friends or your family about it. Sometimes it might make you feel a little embarrassed that you enjoy it so much. Or it might be a show or movie that you watch and watch over and over again. Isabela previously discussed how guilty pleasures are often code for feminine. Romances are often described as guilty pleasures. One of the ideas we mention is they are often more light hearted or popcornRead More →
