I sat down with Andie Bolt to chat with her about her film WoW MoM and the current Kickstater campaign to finance completing the project. I originally learned about the project through a Facebook post by a mutual friend, Anthony Rosner. Since I already have a love of documentary films about video gaming, and this one featured a woman, was directed by a woman, and had a clear mission that I definitely support, I just had to learn more!
I came away from speaking with Andie even more excited about the project. I was impressed with her passion and commitment to the NET carciniods and video gaming communities. Plus, she’s just super fun — a ball of super-charged energy that cannot be contained. Just listen to her and you’ll see what I mean.
Geek hosts Alice, Andrea and Cassie got together to educate Sara on the iconic web series The Guild at the Comic & Media Expo. Alice and Andrea enjoyed the comedy, Cassie respects Felicia Day’s mad contract writing skills and Sara saw what they did there.
Thank you to everyone who came to our panel and in case you missed it — Alice and Andrea cosplayed at the event.
When the first Harry Potter was published, my sister was learning to read. My mom and my sister would lay in bed each night and read chapter after chapter of the Harry Potter series. When they finished with a book, I would then get my opportunity to give it a read. The whole series brings me back to those days and makes me smile when I read the books, watch the movies, or really anytime the fandom comes up!
I totally Geek Out about Harry Potter. Every year, the Phoenix Symphony does a Halloween at Hogwarts show in October. This year I attended with Geek host Alice, her son, and my husband – we were sorted into our houses there this year!
After you’ve been sorted into your house, join me and I’ll share some of my favorite sources for Harry Potter goodness!

DC shows rule the small screen, others rest on the bubble
Despite the rise of risky broadcast shows and the continued decline in live viewership, this fall hasn’t been the complete bloodbath some might have expected.
Networks have been notably slow to cancel their DOA series so far, even with the proverbial handwriting on the wall. (For some helpful context, TVByTheNumbers’ Tom Shaw provides a brief, historical lowdown on TV failures.)
Though few seasons can compare to the Cancellation Fest of 2013-2014, this year critics were no more forgiving and audiences were no more enthusiastic about the slate of new offerings than in years past.
