A New Trek: Discovery

I’ve been looking forward to this for…almost a year? Since they first announced that Star Trek was returning to television. And then there were all the setbacks: producers leaving, production delays, casting delays…all sorts of troubles plagued bringing this show. It is honestly quite the miracle that it even came about, given all the problems. […]

Nerdery Weekend

I went, 2 weekends ago, to the MoPOP (formerly EMP) in Seattle & enjoyed a weekend full of nerdy goodness and all sorts of geekery.

Familial Pressures

Sometimes it is difficult to be the weird one in the family. Not only in terms of my religious beliefs…but in all other ways. I’ve been a geek/nerd ever since I was tiny. I’ve been a fan of Harry Potter since 1997, when my school librarian lent me the copy of the British version one […]

Leonard Nimoy

So this has nothing to do with paganism or polytheism. This has more to do with personal thoughts and ideas. Woke up this morning to the news that Leonard Nimoy has passed away. (Link) That is sad for a multitude of reasons. He was a brilliant actor, worked a director, and did a lot in […]
