At CONvergence this past weekend, I was proud to be the featured guest on the very first episode of Geeks Without God, a comedy/geek/atheism podcast created by Tim Wick, Molly Glover, and Nick Glover. Among other things, I was asked to bitch about Prometheus, which I happily obliged. Check out the episode here! (Warning: TONS AND TONS of Prometheus spoilers are contained within. If you still want a spoiler-free version of my thoughts on the film, I posted it a few weeks back.)
We recorded at 9:30am in the morning (which, at a convention, may as well have been 4am), yet we managed to draw an awesome, lively audience. Thanks to all who attended the recording!
Bonus trivia: I also designed the Geeks Without God logo. I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to the project!
I have already posted at length about CONvergence, and what I’ll be doing there. Since I’ll be doing that until sometime next week (when I will hopefully emerge from the smoking wreckage, ready for more projects), I thought you might enjoy some PowerPoint Karaoke clips from our very first show, which happened at CONvergence 2011:
Come see PowerPoint Karaoke at this year’s CONvergence, 2:00pm Saturday, July 7th, in Atrium 6!
Two weeks from today, CONvergence will rock Bloomington, MN. I suspect that nearly everyone who reads this blog (all five of you) knows what CONvergence is, but in case you just stumbled past, here’s a description. CONvergence is a four-day smorgasbord sci-fi/fantasy/music/movie/party convention that strikes every 4th of July weekend. It currently draws around 5,000 attendees, and features everything from people in costumes to live music to panel discussions to live theater to movies to anime to blacklight mini-golf to cricket lessons.
Many of you are also familiar with the fact that I contribute huge amounts of time to this convention. This year, I am going to break the record for sitting on panels. Normally, Programming only lets people sit on a maximum of about eight panels, but for some reason, they let me sign up for pretty much everything. This year, I’ll be on a whopping nineteen panels, beating the record previously held by game designer Kenneth Hite (who did 18 panels in 2008).
Because of this, it’s unlikely you’ll find me anywhere outside a panel room during the weekend, so I’m including my schedule below the jump, along with pithy comments. Stop by and say hello!
