star trek

Admit it, you’re a Trekkie. You’ve seen Star Trek Beyond, okaym maybe more than once, and now you’re jonesing for more.  You’ve busted out your DVDs of the previous movies. You’ve put on your headset and tried the latest Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday.  You’ve even changed your cell phone notification to that communicator beeping sound.  Somehow this is still not enough.  It’s time to warp into action with a galactically cool game night. The Games There are a few choices, but the number one choice is clear (like his blue blue eyes):  Star Trek Catan.  Settle where no man has gone before. ForRead More →

autobiography

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this month’s hangout about our musical autobiographies due to some family issues. However, Regina and I talked a bit and thought it was a good idea for me to share them here in writing. I know it’s not the same as a back and forth discussion, but I guess it’s a little bit of an insight into me. So here we go! What is the earliest main stream song you remember liking? For me, that would probably be a Kiss song. But since they weren’t quite that mainstream of a band, my other option would have to be ABBA. InRead More →

july

Greetings, Geeks! We had a great hangout for July! New ambassadors Julie and Dante joined me and Rhonda to talk about how our experience and enjoyment of music has changed throughout our lives. We start with our first memories of seeking out music on our own, venture into junior high favorites, and first crushes. From there, we linger a bit too long perhaps in high school and how music first started to truly impact our identities. Looking at post-college time to the present brought us almost full circle in our musical biographies. (Yes, we did discuss the Hamilton soundtrack.) I was delighted to finally understandRead More →
