QMx Will Have A Full Scale TARDIS Replica At SDCC, And You Can Get Your Picture Taken With It.


I almost got myself in trouble over the news yesterday, because I sorta tweeted as soon as I heard (and I have this habit of being all squee and no sanity ::grin:: ) however, I now have pictures so I'm glad I waited a bit.


These are preview pictures of the TARDIS replica that'll be at the QMx booth during SDCC. If you're wondering, yeah, it's to scale. Gorgeous, 9 foot tall, real wood, blue epic scale.

And, yeah, you'll be able to get a picture coming out of it. ;-)

So, dress up, bring your sonics and your best Amy Pond cosplay, because QMx is bringing a TARDIS to booth 2944 at SDCC.


MLP + Serenity = Let's Be Bad Ponies!

I don't have to say more than watch and enjoy. Oh and, I may have to hug Susana Polo from The Mary Sue her untiring efforts to find the very best in MLP mashups.

BTW, I think the "F*cking Ponies!" thing is hilarious.

To Geek or Not To Geek. The Miss USA Question.

Y'know, the "uproar" is starting and I'm gonna stay out of it. Save for saying this.

In what world is it okay to be mad at people for judging geeks for being "other" but it's okay for geeks to judge others?

Oh and, for the record, she said she was a "history geek". All signs point to yes that she is.

Co-opting? Pandering? Fake? Beauty Queens can't be geeks?

Ask yourself why the vehemence?. Personally, I'd rather not judge anyone's "geekiness" factor, or any other factor. Just the way I'd rather not be judged.

And let's not forget -- beauty pageants give away college scholarships.

If you want to get into debate, here are a few links of people who are debating the issue. Me? I'm Switzerland. (mostly)

The New SyFy Original Series "Alphas" Trailer Looks Pretty Sweet

My love for David Strathairn aside (and if you've never seen Passion Fish with he and Mary McDonnell, do it), I like the idea itself. A little X-Men in a more daily life sorta thing. Plus, I'm always down for SyFy original series ;-)



Plus, I have a feeling the writing is gonna be good.*

*not sure I can tell why yet.

Pic Of The Day: The Geek Girl Way To Eat Pho

My girl Amy Ratcliffe makes eating pho geek awesome. ;-)

I also love that she brings her Star Wars chopsticks with her when she goes out to eat. We'll discuss her ability to look amazing at all times another time. ::grin::



The Joe Pesci Of Little Kids.

::grin:: It made me laugh. Thought I'd share.


I get the same way when you try and make me take a pic and smile if I don't feel like it. Plus, points for timing it just right!

Monday Musing - BSG Callsigns and Dog Tags.

Okay, so. Now that I'm an official Quantum Mechanix employee, I'm thinking of getting myself a set of Battlestar Galactica Personalized Artisan Dog Tags for SDCC.

Here's the problem. I can't decide what to get. I could use my name, but if you've noticed, I don't really use my name. ::grin:: I could use my Twitter handle, but that seems sort of...non BSG.

Or I could use a callsign.

The problem is, I don;t have a callsign and -- as I understand it -- callsigns are generally given to the pilot, not chosen.

Which means I need your help. ::grin::

I need a callsign.

Any suggestions? ;-) Help me out here.

And, while I'm on the subject. What's your BSG callsign?

You Geek, They Grok: A Geek’s Guide to Leveling Up Your Online Dating Game.

I love being a geek. Don't get me wrong. But I will admit that, while I think I'm pretty interesting, my geekitude has made dating a bit...unique.

Most of the dating sites and books don't really speak to me. Mainly because they don't take into account my love for Warcraft or sci-fi fantasy books and movies. I mean, the folks on eHarmony don't look like anyone I know.

It can make a girl feel like a bit of an outsider.

So, I was happy to see my friend E. Foley aka @geeksdreamgirl come out with You Geek, They Grok: A Geek’s Guide to Leveling Up Your Online Dating Game.

If you check out the information page, you'll get a really good idea what the books about. Plus you get to see great chapter titles like "The Curse of Knowledge (save ends) & The Chasm of SuckitudeTM".

Kindergardener Performs The Pandorica Perfectly!

I'm not sure what's more awesome. The fact that the kid gets this Doctor Who "Pandorica" monologue perfect, or the fact that he was doing it for his school talent show!



Thank you Joanna Robinson of Pajiba, who seems to be my link muse today.

GNR's Welcome To The Jungle On Cello. Amazing.

A while back, I posted Smooth Criminal as a cello battle by Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser. Now they're back with Welcome To The Jungle.

Just...wow.



Thanks to pajiba for the heads up.

Doctor Who Themed Never Mind The Buzzcocks Has Killed My Morning Productivity ;-)

Not sure how I missed this special Doctor Who version of "Never Mind The Buzzcocks", but I can now say I have gotten zero work done because I started watching it. This is Part 1. Between David Tennant, Catherine Tate and all the Who awesomeness, you'll want to click through to watch the rest.

I wish we had stuff like this in The States.

An Update On Work and Life

I've always believed life is change, so this is my life and it's changing.

Well, work-wise anyway ;-)

For those of you who have been following along, you know I've been working at Entertainment Earth in one form or another for the last six years. It was an amazing time, a great learning experience and -- let's face it -- I got to play with a lot of really cool toys along the way.

Today was my last day over at Entertainment Earth and I'll admit, I'm a bit sad to say goodbye to a really good group of folks.

Starting Monday, I'll be diving in over at Quantum Mechanix and splashing around full time. I've always enjoyed a challenge and QMx has definitely offered one, so I'm looking forward to seeing what we can create together. Not to mention, they make some of the coolest replicas ever.

I appreciate all of you guys following along and I'm looking forward to the future ;-)
