Our next live Google Hangout show is already next Monday, March 3, 2014 at 8pm PST/11pm PST. It is going to be an epic game of movie lip sync battle. What is that you ask? Tune in to find out . . . hopefully, we don’t create a giant mess. Either way, I’m sure it will be hilarious.
Watch the last show below when we did a lil’ show and tell with our most prized fandom objects.
Sean Molyneaux of Apocoplay joined us to talk about Alteil Horizons and their Kickstarter campaign to help launch this sequel to Japan’s popular online card game. We talked about the very vast world of the game — its different mythologies, characters and storylines. We discussed the artwork and what fans (and newbies!) can look forward to. Check out the podcast and learn about this very cool and unique online game.
Recently I was lucky enough to conduct an interview with charming female Canadian actor Kate Drummond. Kate plays Technical Operations Manager Anna ‘Grim’ Grímsdóttir in the video game Splinter Cell: Blacklist. We conducted most of the interview over Skype and before the interview officially began she showed me her Splinter Cell mug that displayed the image of Sam Fisher when hot coffee is poured into it. Pretty cool, right? In this interview Kate talks about Grim, what it was like to act for a video game, her online cooking show, the incredible story of what inspired her to pursue an acting career, and her passion for working with children. She also shows her geeky side by talking about why Iron Man is her favorite superhero.
It was such a pleasure chatting with her and it’s one of the few times I felt like I was having a conversation with an old friend. She also totally channeled Grim during our interview and handled a situation when we were starting to have technical difficulties. Frankly, Kate’s pretty awesome.
Tell me about your character Grim in Splinter Cell.
Well, she’s the Technical Operations Manager of Fourth Echelon. She does all the analyzing, all the data, getting all the information to Sam while he’s on the field. She’s a really skilled hacker and super smart and super by the book. She’s a woman in a man’s world and so she’s one of the guys in a way which I love about her. I grew up with an older brother and all his friends and I was five years younger. I was always so excited to be a part of their group and hang out with them and play road hockey. I grew up as a tomboy, so I feel that Grim has that sort of strength and a sort of presence that she’s able to command in the Fourth Echelon because she has those skills and a strong opinion on those sorts of things.

For Harry Potter fans out there, this one is for you: Infrared Battling Wands!
Simply put, laser tagging with wizard wands, from ThinkGeek.com. Cool right? You can reenact the battle between Harry and Voldermort for just $22.99 per wand. Or, simply do a ‘friendly’ duel, using Ron and Hermione’s wands. Remember, it’s not which wands you are using… it’s how you use it.
Better brush up on those magical incantations and practice running in top speed without accidentally taking your eye out with one of these babies. I really hope someone I know will host a laser tag wand tournament in the future.
