Pandemic Game Review

A few months ago (I’m behind, I know!) I had the opportunity to play Pandemic for the first time and I really loved it!  Pandemic is a board game that I’ve been dying to play but my board game friends had been reluctant to break it out because it’s challenging to win and they hadn’t ever done it.  Luckily, they decided to give it one last shot and it was worth it because we kicked that diseases butt!  Pandemic is pretty timely considering the ebola outbreak.  The object of the game is to cure a rapidly spreading disease while traveling around the globe before every major city is infected.  You use cubes to signify the disease and if a city with three cubes gets hit, it’s called an outbreak and the disease spreads to each of the surrounding cities.  Once the disease is cured in a research center the disease cubes that are already there remain until you clear them, but no new cities may be infected.  I think one of the reasons we were able to win is because my role was that of the scientist.  The scientist is able to cure a disease by getting four cards of the same color instead of five.  (Also just noting that I love that the scientist card depicts a female).  Andrew, Carolyn and I had a wonderful time playing this game and I definitely recommend it if you like feeling slightly panicked while strategizing!

End of Season Pumpkin Spice Product Reviews

My pumpkin spice addiction was in full force this season and as a result I ended up sampling some really tasty treats as well as some that were kind of meh.  I decided to round them up in one giant end of season review instead of harassing the non-pumpkin lover by posting one review per week.  I found most of my pumpkin snacks at either Trader Joe’s or Stop and Shop and I also included a photo of a sparkly pumpkin I found at Michael’s just because.

Sparkly Pumpkin ^.^Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetPumpkin Spice M&M’s – It’s been a full year since I first tasted and wrote this love letter to Pumpkin Spice M&M’s, and I’m very happy to report that they hold up.  I think pumpkin spice is one of the best flavors to be mixed with the classic M&M (right after peanut butter of course).  Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses – I am a HUGE fan of these.  They’re not what you would expect at all from a Hershey Kiss and it totally works!  When you unwrap your kiss, your met with a bright orange chocolate and once you take a bite, you’ll see the white cream filling in the center.  The kiss is VERY pumpkin spice and does not really taste like chocolate at all.  I think these can be very hit or miss depending on your tastes, but I really love them.  They’re more sweet than spicy and I’ve been savoring this bag ever since I purchased it.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Pumpkin Spice Toll House Chips – Similar to the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses, Nestle’s Toll House chips are also a bright orange color.  I’m sorry to say that I had the busiest October ever with NYCC and all, and I still haven’t been able to bake any Pumpkin Spice cookies with these just yet, so I cannot yet comment on their taste. Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies – These pumpkin cheesecake cookies did not make of my list of things I would buy again.  They were okay tasting, but they  were neither spicy nor sweet enough so it felt like the cookie was lacking overall.  Perhaps they would best appeal to someone who has a casual love for pumpkin?  Either way, they did not do much for me.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Tazo Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea – OMG this tea is the best tea.  Chai tea is already spicy by itself so adding pumpkin spice to it was an ingenious idea.  I’m still enjoying cups of this as I type.  Next year, I’m definitely planning on stocking up on this tea so that I can enjoy it year round.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Spice Swirl Bread – This bread was absolutely delicious, especially when consumed with Trader Joes’ Cookie Butter.  The bread has orange bits of pumpkin in it, as well as a cinnamon-like spicy swirl and when topped with cookie butter, it tastes much more like dessert than breakfast.  I would definitely buy this again next year.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Croissants – I am a huge fan of croissants as it is, so adding pumpkin to them is a breakfast dream come true.  These croissants are topped with pumpkin seeds and the inside has a delicious pumpkin filling, which after baking in the oven, is so incredibly warm and satisfying.  These are not spicy at all but they still manage to pack enough flavor to secure their status as a fall favorite.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Kellog’s Eggo Pumpkin Spice Waffles – These waffles are another masterful combination of pumpkin spice and breakfast food.  They have a combination spicy and sweet taste that I would compare to eating something cinnamon and then pouring sugary maple syrup in all of the squares.  Good job Eggo, Leslie Knoppe would be proud.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bagels – These bagels are another pumpkin infused food that were just okay.  Maybe I’m spoiled with New York Bagels, but these were nothing to write home about in so many ways.  Since I prefer bagels when they’re just out of the oven, I tried toasting one to see if it would change my opinion, but alas, it did not.  The bagels were not doughy enough and the pumpkin flavor felt very bland.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Trader Joe’s Mini Ginger Pumpkin Ice Cream Mouthfuls – The name alone is a mouthful!  These mini ice cream sandwiches were exploding with flavor, thanks in huge part to the ginger cookies that the pumpkin ice cream was sandwiched between.  They were tasty and they did have an effective spicy to sweet ratio, but these were also not my favorite.  There were bites where the ginger flavor was too overpowering to enjoy the pumpkin.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Macarons – These were so delicious! I mean, they’re macarons so they’re kind of a challenge to mess up taste-wise (baking-wise is a whole other story).  The cookie is light and delicious and the pumpkin filling was sweet enough that each time I finished a cookie, I felt compelled to reach for more.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Nabisco Pumpkin Spice Oreo’s – Oreo is constantly coming out with innovative flavors, some which work extremely well and other (like Caramel Apple, yuck), that completely miss the mark.  I am so pleased to report that Pumpkin Spice Oreo’s are perfection (despite smelling like a candle when you open the package).  The cookie part tasted akin to a graham cracker and the filling was a darker orange than you’d expect an artificially flavored food to be.  They boast a fantastic spicy to sweet ratio and I will definitely be hunting for these again next year.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Cereal Bars – I think part of the reason that I wasn’t super into these is because I’m not a big cereal bar person overall.  I thought they did a good job of emulating the taste of a cereal bar, so if those are your thing, you will probably enjoy these.  They didn’t have enough taste to keep me interested in even finishing one entire bar.  Next year, I’ll pass.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Cheesecake – This was definitely worth the low price tag of $6.99 for an entire cheesecake.  The crust was a delicious graham cracker and the pumpkin cheesecake was very sweet.  I couldn’t eat too much in one sitting because of how rich it is, but the taste definitely kept me coming back for more.

Not pictured is also the Trader Joe’s Salted Pumpkin Caramels which were an interesting creation.  They were VERY pumpkiny and also very salty.  I could only eat one at a time and after consuming almost the entire box, I still can’t decide whether I really liked them or really didn’t like them.  I think I kept eating them out of the hope that I would draw a conclusion but it has yet to happen. Maybe next year!  What were your favorite Pumpkin flavored treats from this season?

Sideshow Collectibles’ MARY JANE WATSON By J. Scott Campbell Statue Review

Face it tigers, we just hit the jackpot!  I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited to review a statue than I am to review the stunning new Mary Jane Watson comiquette that Sideshow Collectibles recently released.  The collection, which I SWOONED over at San Diego Comic Con last year, is designed by the ever-so-talented J. Scott Campbell.  Having already owned some of his artwork (I even have a Gwen Stacy print hanging on my wall, which one of the other statues in the collection is based on!), I was completely on board to add these gorgeous creatures to my collection.  But back to MJ!

IMG_1621

I used in the first paragraph, but the only word to really describe the new Mary Jane Watson statue is stunning.  She is by far one of the prettiest statues I’ve ever owned.  Mary Jane’s pose is striking, as she kneels on a brown leather ottoman surrounded by fashion magazines and a June issue of The Daily Bugle whose headline proclaims “Spider-Man Frightens Citizens in City.”  Perhaps my favorite part of her design is the top half of Spider-Man’s uniform which MJ drapes over her shoulders and exercises the suits flexibility by grasping and stretching the arms and positioning her arms on her thighs.  I also must add that Mary Jane is wearing distressed denim jeans with back pocket flaps which sit dangerously low on her hips, accentuating her curves.  Her outfit is completed with a tight and low cut white tank which as any Spidey fan would know, is very MJ.  I love that she’s barefoot, and it appears that this is a pose that anyone may catch MJ in while sitting in her living room daydreaming about Spider-Man  on any given day.  I’m assuming that’s where her mind is because she also has a very seductive look on her face.  Mary Jane has red lips and blue eyes which coordinate perfectly with the Spider-Man suit and she’s sporting cat-eyed eyeliner and an thin arched eyebrow.  I love the extra attention to detail on her face, especially with the perfectly placed freckles which help her seductive look seem slightly more innocent.  The sculpting of her hair and side bangs is also quite lovely.

IMG_1622 I’m kind of having a difficult time writing my review without stopping to stare at her for a few more moments, even though I’ve been admiring her each day since she arrived at my doorstep!  According to the Sideshow website, Mary Jane is cast in high quality polystone and hand painted with a new high contrast technique.  I love the material used on this statue.  It doesn’t feel as fragile as some of the other statues I own.  The ottoman base is also very weighted, so I feel confident that it would take a lot of effort to ever knock her over.  She actually weighs a full five pounds!  Mary Jane is 11.5 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide and 5.75 inches deep.  So in comparative terms, she’s bigger than a Kotobukiya bishoujo statue, or an Ame-Comi figure but quality-wise, you can’t even discuss them in the same sentence.

IMG_1623

The Mary Jane statue is currently on sale on Sideshow Collectibles’ website, and she’s only retailing for $249.99.  One of the other things I also love about Sideshow in general is that you’re able to split up your payments if you can’t spend the $250 all at once.  The Mary Jane statue is limited to only 6,000 pieces (I have number 0585!), so you probably shouldn’t wait to long to place your order if you’re considering adding her to your collection.  Below are some close up photos of the details on the statue, the bottom of the base, which is also beautifully designed, the box she was delivered in, and the last photo I took is of Mary Jane with one of my favorite Spider-Man comic runs, (just for good measure and not at all because I’m having way more fun photographing this statue than any adult should admit to).IMG_1624IMG_1625IMG_1626IMG_1627photo 1-1

Alex + Ada By Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn

Alex + Ada is a newly released Image comic by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn.  The first two issues are about Alex and his reluctance to accept the android he received as a gift from his grandmother. Within the first issue, the reader immediately gets a sense of how heavily Alex’s world relies on technology, and how depressed Alex seems to be.  He proves to be a very relatable character.  On the surface Alex is surrounded by technology which theoretically should make it much easier for him to be constantly interacting with people, but instead he seems unable to relate, disconnected, and alone.  We also meet Ada, who immediately relays the laws of robotics set forth by her parent company Tanaka, which she must obey.  The artwork in the series is beautiful.  It’s very streamlined and clean which helps to enhance this maybe-not-so-far-away futuristic world.  The only bright color in the series is a baby blue which could represent traditionally depicted computer screens.  It makes you feel as though the technological aspect of life is the only source of happiness for most people in this world.

The series reminds me of the manga Chobits, which is similarly about a reluctant young man forming a relationship with a persocom.  It isn’t clear yet whether Alex will become romantically involved with his android, but it does seem like the direction the story could take (especially since the cover of the first issue shows Ada’s packaging draped over her head in a wedding veil-like manner).  The series is only two issues in so if you haven’t had a chance to begin reading, there will be minimal catch up before you’re up to date.  You can find it in your local comic book shop, or it you prefer to read digitally, on ComiXology.

DC Collectibles Adds Stargirl To Bombshell Line

I recently wrote about my obsession with the new line of DC Bombshell statues designed by Ant Lucia.  Since then I’ve acquired Supergirl, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn!  Then, DC released their collectible preorders this week and it appears they have a new addition to the line, Stargirl! She’s set to be released in July, and her design is one of my favorites in the collection so for.  Stargirl is rocking a beautiful retro hairdo, high-waisted shorts, a halter top, a gorgeous tattoo, deep red lips, and she’s accessorized with mid calf boots and wrist length gloves.  She’s currently available for preorder on Entertainment Earth for $99.99.  I’m really hoping DC will add a Zatanna, and a Catwoman to line as well!

Concept Art: Miyazaki’s Pippi Longstocking Movie Would Have Been Perfect

When I was kid, one of my favorite books was Pippi Longstocking and I was also obsessed with the accompanying live action film, The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.  I was always drawn to Pippi because I admired her free spirit and her big heart.  I would make my family watch the movie constantly and no matter how many times we saw it, I never found any less amusing than the first time.  I often wore my hair in pigtail braids as a child too, as an homage to Pippi.  When I recently found out that Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata had wanted to make an animated version of the film back in 1971, but the books author, Astrid Lindgren said no, I was heartbroken.  Fortunately some of the concept art was released by Studio Ghibli for our viewing pleasure.  Upon seeing all of Miyazaki’s magical designs I became even sadder about never seeing the film that could have been.  It would have been aptly titled, Pippi Longstocking, The Strongest Girl in the World.

The Fifth Beatle By Vivek J. Tiwary, Andrew C. Robinson & Kyle Baker Review

I read The Fifth Beatle by Vivek J. Tiwary, Andrew C. Robinson & Kyle Baker on the recommendation of my friend Clayton and boy am I forever grateful.  The Fifth Beatle is the true untold true tale of Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ manager who spent his life busting his bum turning an ordinary group of boys from Liverpool into an international success story- bigger than Elvis Presley.  Epstein wholeheartedly believed in The Beatles and he poured his soul into building their image and preparing for their success even before they had achieved it.  If it weren’t for Epstein, we wouldn’t know of The Beatles, and we certainly wouldn’t be able to enjoy the legacy they’ve left behind to this very day.  But while The Beatles’ story is well known, Epstein’s has remained a mystery to the general public until now.  Ambitious, persistent, wildly successful, and empty are the best adjectives to describe Epstein.  On the outside, he has it all, but his personal life is full of struggle. The Beatles are known for signing “Money Can’t Buy Me Love,” and after reading Tiwary, Robinson and Baker’s retelling of Epstein’s story, it seems like the song embodies some of his personal woes.

“Mythology is better and more fondly remembered than history.  It’s more entertaining so we create legends rather than recount truths.”

The book uses a matador fighting to the death against bulls as a metaphor for every aspect of Epstein’s life.  He spent his life fighting for success (for The Beatles, and several other entertainers), fighting stereotypes (being Jewish during an anti-Semitic time), fighting to find love (at a time when homosexuals were imprisoned in England because it was considered illegal), and never once losing the drive to succeed despite all the odds being against him.  It explores his insecurities, his personal relationships, the evolution of his interaction with the band, his friendly meetings with the band’s lawyer, and his intriguing experiences with his peers in the entertainment industry.  The artwork and colors evolve throughout the story to reflect Brian’s professional and emotional progression. The visual alterations from scene to scene offer a pleasing depiction of the changes Epstein is experiencing both internally and within society.

“Well the truth always gets outed. Eventually. Only when it becomes more sensational than the myth.”

I became so involved in the story that I read it in its entirety in one sitting.  I even got teary eyed at the end which is a thing that rarely ever happens.  One of my favorite lines is when the lawyer tells Epstein “if you weren’t so damn British, Brian, I’d say you were the American dream!”  Arguably, the most important theme in Epstein’s story is love. The lack of love in his romantic life is largely responsible for igniting Brian’s need for professional fulfillment to accomplish things that had never even been dreamed of in the past.  The irony of the story is that while Brian never found love himself, he made love possible for so many other people.  Epstein left the world a better and brighter place than he found it.  You can watch the book trailer for The Fifth Beatle here, and you can purchase your own hardcover copy or hardcover collector’s edition on Amazon or in your local comic book shop.  And remember, love is all you need<3

Why My New Goal Is To Own This Gotham City Bracelet By nOir

The jewelry company nOir recently released some new items in their DC Comics line, and among them is this Gotham City bracelet which has quickly made its way to the very top of my Christmas list.  Not only does Gotham house some of my favorite superheroes and villains, but it also reminds me of my favorite part of my own hometown, the breathtaking architecture of New York City.  The entire time I was in LA filming for Fangasm, I was feeling majorly homesick and I couldn’t wait to get back and wander the streets, so I could once again admire NYC’s skyscrapers.  Almost every producer had told me that they’d never met a New Yorker who loves New York as much as I do.  Even my own dad makes fun of me when we walk around Manhattan because I’m constantly stopping to take photos of my favorite buildings.  And I know a ton of random trivia about said buildings.  I am determined to own this beautiful piece of jewelry one day, not only to celebrate my love of Gotham, but also to have a piece of home close to me at all times.  Plus, I’ve also started reading Gotham Central recently and I’m completely addicted to the series.  This Gotham City bracelet will ship on December 19th, and it’s available on the nOir jewelry website for $310.

My HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Feels

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with my partner in crime, Melissa, and within minutes of the beginning of the film, we knew we had made the right decision in braving the pre-opening night crowds.  Being the overenthusiastic geeks that we are, Mel and I both channeled The Hunger Games‘ heroine, and newest victor from District 12, Katniss Everdeen.  We met at The Strand and took photos with the second novel in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, Catching Fire (the hardcover edition obviously, because we’re both book snobs when it comes to movie-tie in editions of novels).  We’re fully equipped with our Mockingjay pins and Katniss style braids.  This photo also serves as proof that both of us own at least one pair of pants that are not leggings.  But, back to the film!

IMG_0222

I wouldn’t totally say that I had been disappointed in the first film because the beginning half, with the anticipation of the games was done very well and many of the actors shone in their roles, but the second half  of the film, the actual games, didn’t even come close to meeting my expectations of what I had been hoping for.  Thankfully, the second film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, more than made up for the lack of chemistry between Katniss and Peeta (we experience them building a meaningful and believable relationship with each other), and the gravity of the themes present within the first film.  Catching Fire establishes Katniss as the symbol of the revolution against the corrupted government ruling over the 12 Districts in Panem.  Her importance in the revolution is solidified and the other Districts idolize her because they see Katniss as a symbol of hope.  Her mere presenece inspires many citizens to take a stand against the peace agents (who kept reminding me of storm troopers).  After being personally threatened by President Snow, Katniss does her best to play his game and put on a happy face during the victors tour with her co-victor Peeta Mellark, but the President considers their attempts to be a failure.  Deeming Katniss a threat, he does the only thing he can think of; he pulls the next set of tributes for the Quarter Quell from the existing pool of victors from each District (hint: Katniss is the only female victor from District 12).  Before re-entering the arena, Haymitch advises Katniss to remember who the real enemy is.  Catching Fire is weighted with moments of intense emotion because of the tense atmosphere in a society where an uprising is long overdue.  Each actor plays a key role in the film, whether they’re pro or anti rebellion.  Two of the newest characters introduced, Plutarch Heavensby (the Head Gamemaker) and Johanna Mason (the outspoken female tribute from District 7) were amongst my favorites for their complexities and motivations throughout the Quarter Quell.  Overall, Catching Fire, had a much better sense of direction than the first film, and it succeeded in all of the places where The Hunger Games failed.

1

I personally love The Hunger Games.  It’s a concept that deeply disturbs me, and for the second year in a row I couldn’t help leaving the movie theater and questioning the morals of some of the people in our society.  In both of my theater going experiences there have been people cheering when children die during the games, and laughter during scenes where such behavior is completely inappropriate.  Here are a two unspoilery examples from Catching Fire, and one societal marketing ploy that made me sick in general:

1) While attending a party in the Capitol, a party attendee offers Peeta a tiny lavender drink for when he becomes full so that he can get sick and then begin eating again.  While the people in almost all of the other districts are on the brink of starvation, the citizens in the Capitol are so abundant in resources that they over-consume to the point of making themselves physically ill just so they can continue to consume even more.  The drink symbolizes the decadence of the Capitol, the wastefulness of its citizens, and their general ambivalence and lack of concern for the well being of the other districts.  For some reason this made people laugh.

2) Haymitch is a drunkard and he is often given lines that allow him to provide the audience with comic relief.  While I understand why this is necessary, I don’t find myself giggling over his antics along with other folks.  Each time I see Haymitch drink, I think about what drove him to this point in his life.  In Catching Fire, we see Katniss experiencing night terrors (another scene in which people laughed and my mind was boggled) and visions within the woods of her District because the Hunger Games are a traumatic experience for a teenager to partake in.  Haymitch, an adult now, is obviously still so traumatized by his victory that he uses alcoholism as a form of escapism from his flashbacks.

3) If you haven’t yet seen the Subway commercial for their new sandwich, you can do so here and then attempt to suppress feelings of rage for the remainder of the day.  This sandwich is probably the most outrageous movie tie-in marketing gimmick that I’ve ever had the misfortune of viewing.  Guess what Subway, standing up for what you believe in and having the courage to stand up to an oppressing government is simply incomparable to a sandwich.  While viewing Catching Fire and seeing the scene in the context of the film that Subway chose to include in its advertisement, I became even more upset by their ad that I had been upon my first viewing (which I hadn’t thought would be possible).

2

If you’ve seen the first film and you’re unsure about whether you’d like to continue the story, I urge you to give Catching Fire a shot.  There was a drastic difference between each installment and Catching Fire appeared to nail everything that Suzanne Collins had originally intended the story to convey when she penned the trilogy it’s based on.  Have you seen The Hunger Games: Catching Fire yet?  What’re your thoughts?

Etsy Shop I’m Obsessed With This Week: Word To Your Unicorn

My fellow geek girl blogger and good friend Leslie Stewart, also happens to operate one of my all time favorite Etsy shops, Word to Your Unicorn.  Leslie sells post cards, greeting cards, and stickers which were inspired by her geeky and kawaii interests.  She keeps adding more and more to her shop and I always find myself favoriting every new item.  I’m especially obsessed with her recent Studio Ghibli and Sailor Moon designs.  I’m also loving the minimalist Avengers postcards which resemble Pantone color cards, and I dare you to look at the Dalek’s Need Love Too postcards without immediately wishing you could hug one of Doctor Who’s adversaries.  It’s fitting that Leslie would be impressing us with her designs in the form of postcards and greeting cards, because she’s also one of the co-creators of the International Geek Girls Pen Pal Club.  If you haven’t already joined, I highly suggest you do!  It’s a great way to make a new geeky friend, preserve the lost art of letter writing, and of course, get excited for geeky surprised in your daily snail mail delivery!  Leslie is uber talented and when she’s not busy designing new stationary, she’s blogging all of her clever thoughts on her new site Leslie IRL.  I have a bunch of Leslie’s stationary but I love it too much to send to anyone =^.^=
