For our June LIVE Hangout, we talked about villains: the ones you love to hate and hate to love. What makes them relate-able or hate-able? Rhonda, Mark, Isabela, and I had a great time chatting about our favorite villains from movies, TV, books, and video games. We also had a wildcard category which Rhonda won hands down.
We start the discussion determining which villains we think are canon, ones that set the standard for the rest. Included are some of the greats of modern mythology: Darth Vader, Voldemort, and the Wicked Witch of the West. Listen and tell us what you think of our selections and thoughts about loving that bad guy. I'm looking at you, Spike.
To open the show I talked a little bit about my book campaign on Inkshares for "Mothering: The Game." Make your way over there and pre-order your copy before July 15th so I can be in the running for the Nerdist contest. I read a short excerpt on the show from the chapter I will release when I hit 50 readers. Only 22 more to go at the time I am writing this! You know you want to read, "Achievement Unlocked: Daily Quests."
We decided on two future themes for the show: music and cocktails and antiheroes. So on July 10th keep a look out for The Geek Embassy's LIVE Cocktail Party. Hopefully, our new ambassadors will be able to make it to that show.
Let us know in the comments about your favorite villains or any recommendations for drinks we must make next month.
Until next time, get your geek on!
Regina, Rhonda, Mark, and Isabela
