She Geek Critique – Dragon Con Science: Power Man

Welcome to the second of my two recaps of Science Track panels from Dragon Con. This time I’m covering “The Science of Luke Cage,” which looked into the potential reality behind a character with impenetrable skin and incredible strength. The panel of scientists leading the discussion included a chemistry professor, an engineer, a biology professor and a biologist.  Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – The Kingsman Returns

I am fresh from seeing Kingsman: The Golden Circle and I have to say… WOW! (This is non-spoilery, since some of you have not had the chance to see it yet.) Let’s start with the overall feel of the movie. It feels like an an old friend who has come home and the two of you pick up from when you last left town. Even with certain stories developing and the Statesman being lobbied in, it did not harm the plot one bit. As a matter of face, for a movie that clocks in over two hours long, it most certainly doesn’t feel it!  Continue reading

Fans of The Legend of Korra are already familiar with Pro-Bending, something the series added to the elemental magic world of Avatar.

And now, as part of a deal between IDW and Nickelodeon, it’s becoming the first official Legend of Korra board game.  Continue reading

She Geek Critique – Dragon Con Science: The Multiverse

As mentioned in last week’s blog about Dragon Con, I attended a few panels that were presented by the Science Track. Like a true geek, I took notes, so this week and next I’m doing a recap of a couple of the panels that were directly related to pop culture. First up is “Managing the Multiverse,” which looked at the various scientific theories exploring the possibilities of multiple universes and/or timelines – a must for any geeks into comic book and sci-fi time travel and multiverse plots!  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Investigating the Solve-It Squad

“Who the H*** is giving a middle-schooler access to bank records?!”

The Hardy Boys. Nancy Drew. Mystery Inc. These great crime-solving teenagers have withstood history as some of the greatest sleuths right up there with Holmes & Watson. Scooby Doo has even been rebooted as a post-apocalyptic zombie thriller comic. It has never, however, been a stage play – until now.  Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – When the Morning Comes

You start to feel it sometime during the final blowout of a con or maybe during that last rushed meal between panels, but it is still there… that quiet gnawing feeling that “this is all about to end”. A convention can become an escape and cocoon of sorts. You’re surrounded by your tribe, being your most true self without having to explain or apologize to anyone. It’s awesome and filled with your own brand of reckless abandon, but then you see the cracks beginning to form and reality begins to creep in. It’s the packing for the trip home and making sure that you haven’t forgotten that awesome thing that you might have paid too much for, but, whateva, it’s a con! And the clock ticks closer to the return to the life before. But that’s just the beginning.  Continue reading
