What It Means To Me

So, many of you heard about the recent purchase of Derby City Comic Con, but I thought I would take a few moments and put into words exactly what this acquisition means for me on a very personal level. I grew up with a life that has had comics at its core. I’ve told the story of how I first became a...

Derby City Comic Con

The second Derby City Comic Con went off very well this weekend. As you have probably heard, our company Pandora Promotions officially purchased Derby City this weekend. It was a huge step for our little group and we are honored that Eric Banister trusted us to continue the work he started when he realized...

Around the World in a Glass

On today’s date in 1945, the United Nation’s Charter was signed by the 50 founding nations in a meeting in San Francisco. I learned this little fact while reading a book that I have enjoyed for inspiration and exploration of cocktails, The Daily Cocktail by Dalyn Miller and Larry Donovan. 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...

Let’s Talk Torchwood

Many who know me know I’m a series Doctor Who fan. I may not be able to hang with the more pedantic crowd quoting lines and show notes, but I will carve out time in my day to always catch an episode when it’s available. My fandom has a very similar story to most of you as I joined the show in the Tom Baker...

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...

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...

MirrorMask

Earlier today, I stumbled across a reference to Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman’s MirrorMask that had me wistfully thinking back to when I caught the film for the first time back in 2008. The film itself actually came out three years prior to that in 2005, but I was late attending that particular visual...

One More Reason I Am A Whedon Fan

I openly admit that I am a DIE HARD Joss Whedon fan. That said, there have been moments when I’ve been lukewarm to some of his work in comics (Buffy over at Dark Horse being a clear exception), but his television work remains some of my favorite series of all time. My library shelves are lined with...

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...

Silent Shadow of the Bat

How about some cool comic related video? These three come to us by way of a pointer from the very talented Lexington, KY based comic creator and writer RD Hall. Here’s how the original creator of this video series explains the creation… Parts one and two are halves of a 12 minute short depicting...

Into The Wild

I woke up this morning thinking about a film I’ve seen several times. The fact that I watched it twice in just the past week and find it moving up my top 10 favoriate films list may explain why it’s so central to my thinking right now. This very interesting film is Into the Wild. Theatrical...
