Sandra Bullock Lesson #1

| Posted by | No Comments

Everything I need to know I learned from Sandra Bullock.

As you may or may not have heard on the podcast, I had a weird dream a few weeks ago that Sandra Bullock was following me around telling me what to do.

Mostly she was telling me things from Miss Congeniality (that film is full of life lessons!) But, it got me thinking about all of her films. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, and I think part of that is because I never know what she’s going to turn up in next. Chick flick? Many. Action film? Several. Crime investigation? Been there, done that. Time travel? Sort of. Science fiction? Hells yes.

I realised there are many lessons to be had from all of her films. I set myself a challenge to watch ALL (or as many as I can track down) of her films and report back on the useful things I learned from them.

Throwback Thors-day: Our First Video!

| Posted by | No Comments

The first video we posted on our YouTube channel is ‘Defective Geeks Goes to Star Tours’ in 2011. Whilst bored and waiting in line  for the Star Tours ride in Disneyland after it had been revamped to what it is known as today! The wait time was so long that we somehow thought we should attempt to be brilliant, show our audience what it was like to wait in line AND created a story line all at the same time. A cat and mouse chase story, with mystery, drama and possibilities of forever friendships.

In my opinion, this video is still one of our best ones.

“Alien juice.”

Enjoy! ;)

Winter 2014 Anime Watch List

| Posted by | No Comments

winter 2014

The winter anime season has already kicked off! I have gone through the lists and scoured through my wish list – I’ve shortened it some because I had way too many to watch in the fall, and actually ended up cutting some out because I had been on the fence about watching them anyways, and ended up disliking them quickly. This time I have only selected the ones that I legit am excited about. As a reminder, I am going into these shows a little blind, based on just what I see in the trailer and a wiki blurb.

Met Thor at Disneyland, Can Die Now

You Disney and Marvel enthusiasts out there probably know that there is now an Asgard section in the Innovations building in Disneyland. For those of you who don’t know, you’re welcome.

Thor: Treasures of Asgard

For the past few months I have been trying to find the time to make it over to the Magic Kingdom so that I could harass Thor experience this exhibit myself.

I didn’t know what to expect. When I approached the “Treasures of Asgard” exhibit all I found was a line of excited people, but I had no idea where the line went. While in line I did get to gaze upon some fun Asgardian artifacts.
