Podcast & Guerrilla Graffiti

Hey guys!  If you missed the Geek Soul Brother podcast the other night, you can still check it out (I mean, if you’re so inclined) HERE.  Although I’m pretty sure I sound like a total spaz, so you know, you don’t have to like rush on over or anything.  😉

Also, I’m excited to announce that I’m now writing and doing photography for Guerrilla Graffiti, a new magazine that launches Tuesday!  🙂  What I’m writing over there is VERRRRYYYYYY different than what I write here (although I will be doing the occasional movie review for them as well) but I’ll be focusing more on women’s issues and social issues especially pertaining to mental disorders and other similar things.  So again, if you feel inclined, check it out!  🙂  All the info is below!

Guerrilla Graffiti Magazine will be launching this upcoming Tuesday. GG Mag is a collective effort of a dozen plus people all putting their honest selves on the page. The site is primarily a lit mag, hosting mainly poetry and short fiction, but it’s so much more than that. GG Mag will also feature great art pieces, reviews and articles that come straight from honest voices the whole world over. GG Mag will also feature some very original pieces including Ut Pictura Poesia, a comic illustrating the haikus of Sarah Elena Kirchmaier. In addition to that, we also will be posting the occasional satire article, our first one being “Fat Cat: An Expose of the Feline Obesity Epidemic in America,” and even a listmaker. Beyond all this, here at Guerrilla Graffiti, we don’t quite know what we have yet. We want the site to evolve organically as it gains an honest sense of community. We hope you will support our small but strong effort and check it out.

Geek Soul Brother: Women’s Panel

What will YOU be doing Thursday at 10 PM EST?  I know what I’ll be doing – speaking on Geek Soul Brother’s podcast about “Women in Geek Media”!  It’s my first time on a podcast and I’m really excited (and nervous but shhh! don’t tell anyone!).

“In honor of Women’s History Month, Geek Soul Brother Live! presents Two Women’s Panels to focus on ‘Women in Geek Media’ – Scheduled Tuesday and Thursday, March 12th and 14th at 10 PM EST. Gathered together are these exceptional Ladies of Geekdom to discuss the roles and images of women in film, television, comics, anime and even games.

Tuesday’s Panel will feature the Ladies from: Black Girl Nerds – She Movie Geek – Joker and Thief Podcast – Cinema in Noir – Blerdology – as well as Melody Cooper.

Thursday’s Panel will feature the Ladies from: Cinema Schminema – Girl Gone Geek – Lockettedown Productions – Surfing Aliens – as well as Emily Einolander and Marissa Sutton.

Here are a few of the many topics:

  • Where did the hipsters come from and why do they make ‘real’ geek girls mad?
  • When male writers get a female character right, where do they still miss the mark?
  • What will it take to get more women in the creative seat?

So mark your calendars and be sure to join us on Geek Soul Brother Live! at Talkshoe.com (http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/118765) on Tuesday and/or Thursday, March 12th and 14th at 10 PM EST. for a live podcast that can’t be missed!”

So maybe if you’re around and doing nothing else, you’ll tune in for what I’m sure will be an excellent discussion on women in geek media culture.  And don’t just listen Thursday, check it out tonight too – it’s only an hour away!  🙂
