How to Geek Your Wedding

If you’re like me, you have met someone that you love more than anything else. More than your favorite movie or TV show, more than your favorite comic book or video game, even more than that one 90s thing. And so you’ve seen the photos floating on Facebook of Marvel wedding cakes and anime wedding receptions and thought, “What if we did something like that?” Well on April 29th, 2017 I married the love of my life and we did something just like that. So read on and find out how we geeked our wedding and get some tips on how you can too.

Saturday Morning Update #28

Last week I was in such a fog I totally forgot to mention that I saw Spider-Man: Homecoming last Thursday. It was awesome. Best Spider-Man movie ever. Best Marvel movie that isn't Guardians. My second favorite Marvel movie period (behind Iron Man 2 [No, really, I love that movie]).  We're hoping to see it again with Katrina's little brother soon.

Also, we're going to the After Dark Potterfest! After Dark is a series of 21+ events held at Carnegie Museums in Pittsburgh. This one is all about Harry Potter and our favorite wizard school. There's gonna be all kinds of science and magic and it's gonna be a doozy!

And Monday is the AquaBats! show!!! We'll be there with our friend Sheena from Magical Girl Cafe. It's gonna be a super rad time! If you see me there (or at Potterfest) say hi!

REVIEW: K: Missing Kings

K: Missing Kings is the feature length sequel to the anime series simply titled “K.” For a twelve episode first season, K is one of the anime I’ve had the hardest time finishing. I actually did like it. After just the first episode I fell in love with the visuals, the characters, and the action. There was just something about the way the story was told that had me taking weeks off between episodes. Luckily, by the time I finished the series I was pumped for the movie.

REVIEW: The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords - Legendary Edition

I’ve been hearing about these manga adaptations of The Legend of Zelda for a few years now. They look like a lot of fun, but I never picked one up as there wasn’t one based on Link’s Awakening, my favorite and only major experience with the action adventure series. So when the Four Swords Legendary Edition came about, I was excited to jump into the world of Hyrule for the first time as a right-to-left Japanese comic adventure!

Saturday Morning Update #27

This week felt like a blur. The first half was all holiday stuff with July 4th and Katrina's birthday. Then I returned to work where things have been kinda slow. I finished reading Song of the Deep, which I picked up on my adventures in Monroeville. It's an adorable story written by the guy who did the story for the actual Song of the Deep video game, as well as Spyro the Dragon and Ratchet and Clank. It took a middle grade YA approach, which fit perfectly. It's a nice quick read too, only ~150 pages. Strongly recommend.

What did you do this week?

Adventures in Monroeville

Last year Half Price Books threw a massive clearance sale at the Monroeville Convention Center, with millions of books all $2 or less. This year it’s happening again… and I confused the date and drove all the way out there for no reason. But since a pretty decent mall is in the area I decided to make a day of it and had a fun time anyway.
