IT’S OFFICIAL: Human has been picked up. You know, the show where Karl Urban is a damaged cop and Michael Ealy is an android with feelings. Yeah. This is actually happening.
Okay, so I’m not sure why but for some reason there are a ton, a TON, of Princess Batman costumes, possibly more than the standard Batgirl costume. They come in 2 different flavors, bumblebee and hot pink. So, I’m just making one big Super Princess Batman compilation post (alternatively Ballerina Batman since those fluffy skirts can be ambiguous).
Don’t ask which Robin that is because I cannot keep track of all the dang Robins at this point… “Stephanie Carrie Graydrake-Waynetodd”
Two Puerto Rican teams were declared winners in the high school and college divisions today in the 20th NASA Great Moonbuggy Race at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
Team 1 from Teodoro Aguilar Mora Vocational High School of Yabucoa won first place in the high school division; the University of Puerto Rico at Humacao claimed the college-division trophy.
The winning teams outraced more than 89 teams from 23 states, as well as Puerto Rico, Canada, India, Germany, Mexico and Russia. About 600 student drivers, engineers and mechanics - plus their team advisors and cheering sections - attended the annual “space race” held Friday and today.
Organized by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, the race challenges students to design, build and race lightweight, human-powered buggies. The half-mile course simulates the cratered lunar surface so that race teams face many of the same engineering challenges dealt with by Apollo-era lunar rover developers at the Marshall Center in the late 1960s. The winning teams post the fastest vehicle assembly and race times in their divisions, with the fewest on-course penalties.
I would like to point out that a Puerto Rican team also won the Spirit Award “for overall team energy, enthusiasm and camaraderie” (because we are happy nerds).

After the long Easter Weekend, it was back to the grind today! Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and working with educators is a delight. However after the awesome weekend of gaming, specifically during the Geeknic XI on Table Top Day, I still wanted to be gaming.

The PRRP Members Data Base, make sure you are counted among gamers in Puerto Rico, whether you currently live here or abroad, we’d love to help you stay in touch with other Boricua Dice Rollers!
Hope everybody had a great day…

OMNI magazine blended science and science fiction, and was one of the most influential publications in the history of both. We draw on the influence of OMNI Magazine every single day, and so do a ton of other people, whether they realize or not.So there’s great news — pretty much the entire run of OMNI is available online at the Internet Archive. (And there’s a complete index to the magazine here.) [via The Verge, thanks Walter!]

As an upcoming Season 5 episode summary details, the show is looking to cast for a story about…an actor who rose to fame on a hit sci-fi series playing one Captain Max Richards.
Ha ha ha ha. Oh man, just make it Alan Tudyk or Adam Baldwin.
AHHHHHHH this sounds so good. Can’t wait.

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you might have already heard about RETCON, an action/sci-fi dramedy for the web on which I’m a writer/producer, starring (and created by) Miley Yamamoto, Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity), and Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10, Shelf Life)! I’m posting this here 1) because here at The Gender Blender, we love women in charge in media and, well, that’s what this is! And 2) It’s a project I’m proud to be a part of, and as many of you follow me here but don’t follow me elsewhere, I wanted to make sure I shared it with you!
There are TWO WEEKS LEFT in our IndieGoGo campaign! We want to raise $30,000 to make this show happen! Can you help? Check out the video on our IndieGoGo page, and back us/share the link to your heart’s content. Thank you!
This looks like a fun series! Check out the promo vid here.
