Hank discovered the question to the ultimate answer of life, the universe and everything!!!!!!!
My good friend Abbey was in town this past weekend for the Terminus Convention – yup, that’s for Harry Potter! I went down to hang out with her on Friday and had an awesome time, helping her look for her dueling partner, cruising through the vendor booths, and going to the Wizard Wrock concert at Reggie’s Rock Club that night to hear some wizard bands. It was a ton of fun, and I hope to be able to go to Leaky Con next spring myself!
At the concert was this guy, Hank Green. He and his brother have this project called “Nerd Fighters.” He sang a couple of his Harry Potter inspired songs. They were awesome. I post here the one called “Accio Deathly Hallows”, written just before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released. Enjoy!
And just for a bit more nerdiness (like I needed it!), here is another of his songs with a Star Trek theme called “What Would Captain Picard Do?”
I love the new show “Heroes” that airs on NBC on Monday nights at 8/9 pm. I LOVE it! My husband and I are totally hooked. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I was watching this weeks episode, and I saw a little something that was a reference to one of my other favorite shows (that sadly was cancelled during the 1st season…). This show, was “Wonderfalls.” I’ve only recently discovered Wonderfalls, and I’m not sure when it aired, or on what channel. I caught a re-run on TV one day on channel LOGO…and then I netflixed it. Awesome series, about a girl that all of a sudden hears inanimate objects talking to her and telling her to do things – these things always end up leading to good deeds, which is a constant point of contention for the main character. Anyway, in the first episode, a smoosh-faced lion from a wax vending machine talks to her. This wax lion was randomly placed in “Heroes.” It’s on the nightstand while Nikki and Micah are sleeping. I was really excited to see it! It was only on for about 3 seconds, but I caught it! Turns out, the co-executive producer on “Heroes” – Bryan Fuller – was the Executive Producer on Wonderfalls…that’s awesome! Enjoy this little image I made, highlighting the little wax lion :-D…OH…and watch “Heroes” and rent “Wonderfalls”!
It’s once again time for über geekdom! Yes, that’s right…another day of Settlers of Catan! Once again, a group of fellow nerds and geeks will make it over to The Llama Nee Inn for food and fun as I kick their butts in a little game (or 2…or 3) of Settlers of Catan – best game ever!
