San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Saturday Highlights)

It’s 2:00am again and I’m still sleep deprived. Yesterday was a BFD day for me. It was my first time cosplaying at a convention. I chose to dress up as my favorite comic book superhero/Norse God, Thor (I’m such a good little Norwegian). I put this costume together myself and even did some light sewing… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Saturday Highlights)

Lucky 13: Maxim’s Hot Nerd Women of 2012

Normally this post would have come out right after the list was announced as it did last year. However, this has been a crazy busy Summer and I just spent 2.5 weeks in New York helping to take care of my two nieces. In short, I’ve had very little free time. Better late than never,… Continue reading Lucky 13: Maxim’s Hot Nerd Women of 2012

Star Trek Captains Podcast (Ten Forward)

This is a very sleep deprived HNG coming to you from New York City. I’m here visiting my nieces and having a great time with them. Unfortunately for me, I usually go to bed around midnight-2:00am California time. Combine my sleeping habits with the time zone change and my body wants to go to sleep… Continue reading Star Trek Captains Podcast (Ten Forward)

“Ask a Foley Artist” – Interview with Dean Minnerly

As I mentioned on the HNG facebook page, I did an interview with Dean Minnerly, Foley Artist for Universal Studios. I also mentioned that he is my stepdad. Now, I should probably offer a quick explanation because I talk about my parents a lot and it can get a bit confusing because I have 6… Continue reading “Ask a Foley Artist” – Interview with Dean Minnerly

You sunk my Battleship!

I use to play Battleship with my brother for hours on end when we were kids. Moving our little red pegs around and gleefully shouting “you sunk my battleship!” It was a fun way to connect with our Dad when he was off on WestPacs. We kept it readily available at all times as demonstrated… Continue reading You sunk my Battleship!

Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast (World’s Best Podcast)

About a week before The Avengers came out in theatres I participated in a World’s Best Podcast discussion about the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. We discussed Hulk (briefly), The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America. We also got into why the Marvel movies seem to be outdoing the DC movies (with… Continue reading Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast (World’s Best Podcast)

Avengers Assemble!

OMFG. I don’t know how else to adequately describe how much I loved this movie. I saw The Avengers twice in 2 days.  The first time after an epic all-day Marvel Movie Marathon with my NBFF Geek Outlaw. And the second time on Sunday morning with my Mom and SO. Afterwards we went to Smash Burger… Continue reading Avengers Assemble!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – OH MY!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a nerd in possession of an illness must go on a Jane Austen bender. At least it does for this nerd. For someone who fancies themselves a writer (or an aspiring one at least) I don’t write nearly enough about books. Which is strange considering the rate in… Continue reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – OH MY!

Star Trek Podcast (Ten Forward)

I’m sick for the second time in a week and I have a gopher that is destroying my yard and my life.  So lame.  Just before I got sick the first time I participated in a Star Trek discussion with Isaac and Mark over at World’s Best Podcast for a new section of the podcast they… Continue reading Star Trek Podcast (Ten Forward)
