STAR TREK: Cast Interview and TOS Trivia Fun

| Posted by | No Comments

It’s a damn good time to be a Trekkie.

After over four years of practically NOTHING (unless you count three frames of footage and a few blurry snapshots of the film set), the past few weeks have seen a sudden flood of shiny new goodies from the next installment of the Star Trek Reboot. Between the official synopsis, the teaser poster, the trailer, the first (spoilery!) movie still, AND the first 9 minutes of the film airing in IMAX 3D screenings of The Hobbit, I barely knew what to do with myself.

To top it all off, interviews with the cast of Star Trek into Darkness have started showing up online. It feels like an old band getting back together and touring after a long hiatus. And it fucking rocks.

Here’s my favorite interview so far, from ET Online. In which the cast and J. J. Abrams undergo a “warp speed” trivia round.

GEEKGIRLPALOOZA! A Night of Lady Geeks at the iO West

GEEKGIRLPALOOZA!

Our first show at the iO West with PodCrash! with Chris Gore was so much fun. I won’t give too much away about our conversation so you guys can watch the video or listen to the podcast later. Fortunately, it seemed that our live audience enjoyed it a lot, so we hope you will too. We had a lot of fun that night and I’m still giddy that they allowed us on a “grown up” stage — thank you, Chris and PodCrash crew!

Friend of the website, Annie Violet, joined us that night to help in the intense discussion of Lady Geek topics. She definitely brought on the adorable-ness that night.

For now, check out all our photos from the show below.

During GEEKGIRLPALOOZA on December 8th at the iO West Theater, Comic Book Live had their Batman Holiday Special. It was the first time we watched these guys perform and their show was hilarious — geek culture and comedy, you guys!

Batman (Chris Gore) is hosting a Christmas party (with BAT-nog) and of course, all the super villains needed to find a way to attend. An epic team up ensues as they try to figure out how to take down the Batman during the holidays.

CHRISTMAS MOVIES: ‘Auntie Mame’

| Posted by | 1 Comment

Next up on the Defective Geeks Holiday Movie Extravaganza is one of my favorite films, Auntie Mame.

Auntie Mame is about an utterly fabulous free thinking east coast woman, Mame, who winds up becoming the legal guardian to her orphaned nephew. Her nephew, Patrick, was raised very conservatively and through Patrick’s eyes we are introduced to her bohemian lifestyle, theatrical friends, and the trials and tribulations the new family faces when the Great Depression hits, when Patrick is taken away to a boarding school against Mame’s wishes, and the reaction when he returns with a less than desirable fiancé. Rosalind Russell shines as Mame, and is as eccentric in personality as each of her fabulous outfits.
