What Was Your Favorite TV Show Growing Up?

There is a fun little website called Proust that helps you build your own autobiography by asking interesting questions and letting you answer, add pictures and share with friends. I thought it would be a fun thing to take some of those questions and answer them with you here from time to time. This is the...

The Legend of Korra: Worth the Wait

  It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve had an avatar in my life. This week on Episode 26, Charlie and I discussed the first two episodes of the new Avatar series, The Legend of Korra. We first talked about being excited for the new series way back in Episode 6 and I even wrote a...

Changing What You Eat: Food Rules

I have a long history of tinkering with myself. I became a vegetarian and animal rights activist around the age of 11 and then around 16 I gave up trying to change the world and had a cheeseburger. Since then I’ve gone through periods of eating meat and not, eating organic and not, eating local and...

Vacation Time

  Vacation, it’s a fairly unexpected and unprecedented concept for me but I think in the next few days it’s a word I’m going to have to get accustomed to saying. Today, we spent some time recording extra audio to build next week’s show in advance. Tomorrow we’ll be packing and getting ready for an...

Meet Travis Richey: Inspector Spacetime and Hot Guy!

All of us here at Pandora Promotions were very excited when we got the confirmation that Travis Richey would be joining us as a guest for Pandoracon in September. Travis Richey, aka Inspector Spacetime from the NBC show Community, first appeared on September 22, 2011 in the Community episode “Biology 101″...

Road Trip Music!

Today was my last day of work for the next two and half months. It’s summer vacation time and you know what that means. It’s road trip season! As I pack my bags for the World Steam Expo this weekend my mind turns to the music I will need to get me through the drive. When I was a little girl...

A Dude and His Drink

What is it about the The Dude? The Big Lebowski has made an impression both on me, and on popular culture as a whole, that seems to be greater than the movie itself should warrant. Thinking about the film I can’t think of a particular theme, character, or image that I can identify as being...

Teslacon II: A Steampunk Weekend

This weekend Charlie, Aloysius and I are off to the World Steam Expo. As a taste of things to come I thought I would share this piece I wrote for Open Salon on my experiences at Teslacon in November. I love costume dramas. I used to watch movies like Pride and Prejudice or An Ideal Husband, with their...

We’re Not Young

Way back in Episode 3 Charlie shared a song we were both enjoying, We Are Young by Fun. The song captures that carpe diem, we can do anything kind of feeling that seems to be so common in young adults. And as much as I like the song, this kind of insufferable exuberance can make those of us past that stage...

The President of the United States Supports Gay Marriage

In 1986 the Supreme Court upheld the state’s right to prosecute a man for having consensual sex with another man in the privacy of his own home. Yesterday the President of the United States stated unequivocally that he believes that same-sex couples should have the right to marry. Despite allegations...

Drinking at Conventions

If you listened to Episode 18 you might have heard me telling the audience about a few of the amazing room parties that I attended at the Steampunk Symposium that weekend. I stand by my statement that cons are the only place where I have attended parties that are anything like the ones in the movies. In...

What Do You Do When No One Is Watching?

There is a fun little website called Proust that helps you build your own autobiography by asking interesting questions and letting you answer, add pictures and share with friends. I thought it would be a fun thing to take some of those questions and answer them with you here from time to time. This is the...

Doctor Who: Some Lingering Questions about Season Six

  Spoilers Sweetie… 1. Why do they have to be so darn scary? I asked this question on Facebook after starting this season. This is of course a rhetorical question and more a reflection on the wonderful writing and creative direction of Stephen Moffat than an actual complaint. Although I am...

C2E2 with Ginny and Charlie

Are you feeling tired? Lethargic? A creeping feeling of loss and dawning realization that your day to day life is dull and colorless? Congratulations, you probably just got back from a con weekend. Pandora Promotions and Comic Related just got back from a weekend at the midwest’s largest comic...

Moving Day

Sorry there was no decent post today. Charlie and I were busy turning this….         Into...
