Theatre Life: “I Saw U”

Tonight is my final performance for this run of “I Saw U” at Unexpected Productions. This is actually the second run for this show – I very much enjoyed the first production in May/June 2014. Unlike some of our shows, this one uses very rich suggestions – specifically, 4 real-life stories pulled from a very specific sort of source. Seattle’s local newspaper has a column called ‘I Saw You” – it’s much like Craigslist’s Missed Connections. People write semi-anonymous messages to other people they noticed in real life but failed to connect with. They’re usually of a romantic nature. Our…

Ma1n-splaining To Do: CorpSINs Week 6

Welcome, chummers! Hard to believe we’re already done with 6 episodes of “Shadowrun: Corporate SINs” at Hyper RPG. Last week, my character Ma1nfram3 made a major reveal of one of her secrets to the rest of MMFEC. It’s kind of her own fault for starting Truth or Dare in the first place, but I digress. Who is Ma1nfram3? She is the character I play on #CorpSINs – the party’s Decker, who handles digital espionage and combat via the ubiquitous Shadowrun Matrix. She’s ever so slightly clumsy in real life, but fairly talented in the digital realm. She boasts a brash…

In January, several of my friends from NERDprov and I were approached by a producer who had just moved up here from Los Angeles to start a gaming-oriented Twitch channel. Would we be interested in a gig where we played a pen-and-paper RPG on live on camera with each other for three hours a week? Short answer:…

Alexa Knows Pokemon Types

I’m proud to introduce my first publicly released Alexa Skill, “Trainer Tips.” This (unofficial) Pokemon reference skill gives Alexa the ability to provide you with type matchup information while you’re in the thick of a battle. With 18 Pokemon types in the latest games, it’s hard to track all of the immunities, strengths, and weaknesses without a college course. 😉 What You Can Do The Trainer Tips skill supports three kinds of requests: Type Strengths Check the types that a particular “hero” type is strong against. Ask questions like: “Alexa, ask Trainer Tips about Steel strengths” “Alexa, ask Trainer Tips…

Hello Computer

We’ve already established I grew up in a Trekkie household – so even though my fervor was largely attained in adulthood, I did still have strong opinions about parts of that universe. Specifically, my favorite Trek movie was always Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Of course, the juxtaposition of those future characters in present-day was delightful and a large part of what I liked about the film (I’ve always been drawn more to comedy.) But the scene I’ve always most remembered involves Scotty attempting to conduct some research via an 80’s era PC. He walks up to the giant…
