Speak, Nerd, and Enter!

Trying not to go into complete meltdown mode, how about you?

Went to see Aladdin on Broadway this past weekend as an early Valentine’s Day celebration with my honey. Mom and dad had gotten us the tickets for Christmas because I’d wanted to see that one for a while. Good timing, too because James Monroe Iglehart (who played Genie) is leaving the show this month to play Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton. Fun show but we came home and watched the animated film right after so I could sing along.

Remember I told you I was a guest on Engage, the official Star Trek podcast? That’s now up for your listening pleasure!

You can also listen on the Star Trek site itself (linked above), iTunes, or download to listen whenever! And here I am with host Jordon Hoffman, who I’ve known for years but only just me in person for the first time when we recorded this.

So, what geeky stuff are you doing lately?

    **listens halfway through podcast** Wait, it’s pronounced “DIS-kuss”? I’ve been reading it as “dis-CUS” for years… o_O

    • That Which Dreams says:

      It IS discuss. As in an electronic way to discuss things.

    • Hunh! I’ve always pronounced it “DIS-kuss” too, for years and years now. Like, I know it’s supposed to be like the word “discuss” I just pronounced it that way to distinguish that I’m talking about the platform.

    • I…feel weird that I never even thought about that. I also never heard it spoken out loud until I was at TMS so I guess none of us thought about it either??? But I just went to Disqus’ youtube page to hear someone from their company say it and you’re obviously right, it’s Dis-cus. o_O

  2. In mild agony due to slow boil of both my webcomics and art-related difficulties, but should finally be back on track soon. But at least the world is starting to be less insane? Trump’ll be out within a year or so, and we’ll just have to deal with a conservative government rather than a crazy one.

  3. Saw John Wick 2 this weekend! Good times. Had to laugh though as the big Rome set piece felt in some ways identical to the Rome stuff in Zoolander 2, lol.

    Lego Batman is still a must-see for me but might not happen this week. Hopefully it does!

    In political news, I’m seriously disturbed not only by the terrorist behavior of Antifa, but by the huge support it seems to be getting from people I thought better of on the left. Since I identify as a liberal and believe wholeheartedly that violence is not EVER a proper response to speech (no matter how ugly the speech), this has been a profoundly disturbing couple of weeks. The names I’ve been called because of my true liberal non-violence positions this week are as disgusting as anything I’ve ever heard come from the right. We need to clean up our house of this regressive hate, or we’ve lost the moral high ground in the battlefield of ideas. Makes my heart absolutely sick.

  4. This weekend I went ahead and watched The Arrival. Honestly, that movie is one of the best pieces of scifi I have ever watched. The trailers don’t do it justice at all. Go watch!
