HNG Podcast #6

HNG podcast Sept 2013

What up, y’all! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA. I seem to have very little free time these days. Soooooooper lame. I’ve got a few posts in the works though so expect some more activity very soon. In the meantime, Darcy and I managed to find some time for a podcast earlier this week and Hayden aka Geek Outlaw was kind enough to join us.

We talked about Ben Affleck as the new Batman, Darcy’s first impression of Game of Thrones, hipster Spidey, Star Trek: Into Darkness, and some other random nerdy tangents. At one point I mention the “Honest Trailer” for Star Trek (2009) and I say that I’ll post the link so HERE YOU GO. Watch it and weep tears of hilarity.

Big thanks to Darcy and first-timer Hayden. Hope you enjoy the podcast!

San Diego Comic Con 2013 Thursday Shenanigans

It’s Day One of San Diego Comic Con 2013 and somehow I always manage to forget just HOW insane it is. So. Many. People. It’s always super stressful but it’s also so much fun.

I decided to dress like Han Solo and my nephew just happened to wear his Jedi costume so we were pretty much perfect together. It’s like we’re not just related but we’re psychically linked as well.

After sitting into a crapload of traffic (thank God I picked up my badge on Wednesday night), I finally pulled into the hotel that will be my home for the next few days. I got there too late to join Geek Outlaw in the Ballroom 20 line but I managed to get into the Sherlock, X-Files 20th Anniversary, and Brave New Warriors panels. I spent the rest of the morning hanging out with my friend Brett at his booth (L-07) and my brother, sister-in-law and nephew. We also visited artists Lord Mesa and Patrick Ballesteros in row DD of Artists Alley.

I’ll do a more in-depth wrap-up later but in the meantime, here are some of today’s highlights…
