Exploring WonderCon 2009

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the March 9th, 2009

For the first time ever, GETV heads over to WonderCon and Irina’s fears of growing up without coming books and not knowing enough about super heroes were allayed. Attacked by a hot baby-dyke version of the Joker, she is saved by hot baby-dyke Batman and Robin! She also hears “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for” and finds out exactly which droids you WERE looking for (the answer is after the credits. We also meet up with a Darth Vader and discover that the force of the dark side is strong on Twitter. WonderCon is a truly a wonder to behold. Go forth geeks and enjoy!

If you haven’t heard of Star Wars, stop reading now. If you have heard of Star Wars and especially Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, then you’re in for a treat. Alex spent several years working at Industrial Lights and Magic working on Star Wars #4, er, #1, and is also the founder of Pixel Corps, a “guild of digital craftsmen” where Alex trains future geekstars in everything digital. Irina interrupts Alex Lindsay’s video production bootcamp class and tortures him with deep meaningful questions such as — who was the first girl who flipped his boat? Turns out it was the lovely Lorraine…. Alex hosts This Week in Media and is a regular guest on the This Week in Tech. Alex also produces MacBreak Weekly.

The One-Man Star Wars Trilogy

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the March 4th, 2007

We were recently invited to check out Charles Ross’ One-Man Star Wars Trilogy theatre show in San Francisco. In one hour, Charles single handedly runs through many of the best moments of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Dialogue, music, special effects and even a few references to the prequel, Charles manages a thoroughly convincing rendition of the trilogy. Irina has a few words with Charles after the opening night show in SF. Playing now until March 11th in San Francisco. Go see it! Use code DARTH and save $5.
