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 →

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 →

finale

#ThronesYall It’s finally that time of year again: Game of Thrones has returned to HBO! Regina, Isabela, join Nicole Tanner from Gaming with the Moms to discuss season 7 of everyone’s favorite fantasy drama. Our first episode discussed Episodes 1 & 2 of Season 7. Our second episode discusses 3,4, and 5 and we wrap up the season with episodes for just episode 6, and now the finale! Official Game of Thrones Description Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues. It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, whereRead More →

relationships

Relationships Those we love, those we wish for, and those we mourn. For our February hangout, we discuss relationships. We talk about canon couples: those fictional couples who set the bar for love and romantic gestures. But we’ve talked about those geeky relationship moments before so to spice this up we threw in our favorite doomed couples and our favorite “ships” or relationships we wish for, AKA “fanon.” We’ve got some crazy matches in store for you and some sad couples who either had tragic ends or tragically ended their shows because they ended up together. (Writers: don’t kill the sexual tension! It really ends things!)Read More →

Hello Everyone! Have I got a treat for you! Here is a very special episode of the podcast, recorded LIVE at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA March 28th and 29th. Check out the pics and the episode! I must say, it felt pretty good to be sitting behind that Yeti microphone again. 😀 Until next time, game on!

Unlike Regina, I am not a keeper. I’m probably the opposite. Efficient, pratical… very Spock like. This doesn’t mean change is easier for me. I do have a lot of passion so the sting of a bandaid is not different. The podcast is really only a small part of GameOnGirl. What I enjoy the most is representing GameOnGirl, geeks, and gamers at cons, speaking about the issues in the community, and meeting and learning from people. The goal is to create a better community for everyone and I enjoy doing that. GameOnGirl is not my job even though I spend about 20 hours a weekRead More →

I’m a keeper. I don’t mean in the sense of the Harry Potter, magical flying broom game. (But that would be seriously cool!) I keep things. Things that are generally meaningless to other people. For example, I have carried a nail in my makeup bag since I was in college. My friend, Gretchen, gave it to me to remember her by when we were on a field trip in Hawaii. I cannot, for the life of me, remember her last name but I kept the nail and remember the look of manic joy on her face when she pressed it into my hand and toldRead More →
