Game on Girl LIVE! Episode 148

Hey Everyone!

For our podcast listeners, the new LIVE Hangout we did on Sunday June 14th is now available as a podcast. If you haven't checked out the YouTube video, don't miss it. We've got some great geeky items that we show off, including a preview of a D&D inspired board game.

Joining us this month are two new writers for the site, Micah Elliot and Sean Blystone. Look for intros and articles from them in the next few weeks. 

I've included links to the books, TV shows, and movies we discussed during the hangout. We also did a tribute to Sir Christopher Lee. Your presence will be missed, sir, and your energy never replaced. 

Our next hangout will be Sunday, July 12 at 2pm Pacific time! Come hang with us!

Until next time, game on!

Wayward Pines: What Would Whedon Do?

"Wayward Pines," Ethan Burke visits Kate (Hewson) BalingerIt didn't take Wayward Pines long to make a nose dive into mediocrity. Episode 1 was intriguing, showing promise and originality, but given the escalating list of problems thereafter, the minor sins from the beginning are all back on the table.

At the end of episode 4, the creators gave us another hint of what's on the other side of "The Wall." With this I’ve developed my theory of what's going on. It's a pretty interesting idea, if I say so myself, although reminiscent of Lost and Under the Dome.

BOTM: "Lumberjanes," volume 1

Lumberjanes,” BOOM! Box, April 2015 (Wikipedia)
Writers: Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis
Artist: Brooke Allen
Colorist: Maarta Laiho
Letterer: Aubrey Aiese

Lumberjanes is a colorful, energetic, young adult comic about the supernatural adventures of best friends at Lumberjane camp.

Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Girls Hardcore Lady-Types

If you ever went to camp and baked s’mores, built a fire, or took a nature hike, Lumberjanes will make you wonder where this camp was all your adolescent life. Campers Jo, April, Mal, Molly, Ripley, and Jenny get a lot more than curfews, marshmallows, and lessons on fauna.  

Up All Night Badge (Learn what goes bump in the night)

Lumberjane camp is for adventure, which can be found day or night. Knowing your surroundings is the best way to embrace the wonder of the outdoors and read the night sky, which sometimes says, “Beware the kitten holy!”

Naval Gauging Badge (Because drowning is a scary way to go)

Being trained and fit for the outdoors and having a healthy respect for the wilderness will make more adventures possible and safer—especially if you come across a sea monster… in a river.

Everything Under the Sum Badge (Math leads to a basic understanding of life)

Lumberjanes are curious and great problem solvers. Kicking it in the woods doesn’t mean you don’t need your ABCs. Understanding the physics of leverage could mean the difference in escaping an ancient cavern or being crushed by a living Greek statue.

Robyn Hood Badge (A sharp eye shows sharp wit)

What do you need to fight off the possessed boy campers? A bow and arrow might come in handy. It’s a good thing Lumberjanes learn the engineering of making and using tools.

Friendship to the Max!

Lumberjane camp prepares hardcore lady-types for all kinds of outdoor adventures and the ladies face them with courage and wonder—and as friends. For all the badges the girls can earn and the adventures they can have, being a friend is the most important component in them all.

Already a fan of Lumberjanes? Then you might be excited to hear that 20th Century Fox is going to make a movie.

I’ll Give You a Topic

What’s the coolest thing you learned at camp?

What’s your favorite female-lead comic right now?

If faced by a pack of three-eyed wolves in the middle of the night, what would you do?

Sticks and Stones and Words

Parker "Challenger" 2015 Pink Camo Crossbow“Words have meaning,” is a mantra Regina mentions from time-to-time. It’s a simple three-word statement that is very complicated. What does “meaning” mean?

Take the term “feminism.” It’s taken a huge beating lately, as it has from its inception. We’ve discussed on the podcast how the word simply means human equality but that’s not how it’s generally perceived. When used in conversation people interpret it as equality for women.

So “feminism” can have at least two meanings in a conversation: the sent meaning (speaker) and the received meaning (listener). But it gets even more complicated when you consider culture, history, politics, psychology, theology, and on and on.

“Words have meaning” is only eighteen characters in a tweet. “Feminist” is only eight, “misogynist” nine, “sexist” six, “chauvinist” ten but each carries volumes.

It’s important, before we start judging people online, to consider the words we’re using in our verdicts. If we want to initiate change or raise awareness, we have the utmost responsibility to do this.
