Hey hey friends… so Mother’s Day is this weekend and all of us have someone who brought us into the world. In honor of that day, this week’s episode is all about my mom. I sat down for an hour with her and recorded all about her geekdom. Yes, this giant fuzzy geek has a Wookieemama who geeks out about stuff too. We talked about all manner of things in a completely unstructured conversation but here’s some of what we talked about:
Disney geekery including the Disney cruises to blowholes
Star Wars movies when they came out
Glimpses into my childhood
Gone With the Wind
Cabbage Patches of color and Fred
San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers
Disneyland (the 1960s, annual passes, favorite rides, Mad T Party band, and Fantasmic!)
Star Wars Celebration plus Chewie cosplay talk
Doctor Who fandom and the Gallifrey One Convention
Conventions & geek concerts we’ve gone to together like Simpsons Take the Bowl
The Simpsons Tapped Out & when my mom didn’t like The Simpsons
Stan Lee & Marvel Movies
Harry Potter nerdom incl. the books and the Universal experience
Fantasy books (Anne McCaffrey/David Eddings/Mercedes Lackey/Dragonlance)
My mom starting my comic book journey
My mom loves Tony Stark
Rambling about future geek stuff she’s looking forward to… mostly at the Disneyland Resort and a few movies
More Disney talk regarding Marvel in the parks
Captain EO, steam trains, Dapper Dans, Disney World, and much more.
It was a really fun conversation and I couldn’t think of a better way to show the Wookieemama how much I love her than dedicating an episode just to her. I’m the geek that I am because of her. I’m so thankful for the chance to record with her and yes, my impressions of her are way off. Hopefully you enjoyed this and don’t forget to thank your own Mamas for putting up with you.
