SciFlix: The Science Behind Sci-Fi

This post contains affiliate links.

As any good geek family, we watch a lot of movies, both at home and at the theater. When something extra-ordinary or supernatural happens that we don’t quite follow how it happened, we refer to it as “eh, comic book science” – as in, it doesn’t have to be founded on actual science to be entertaining.

But there is a group in Kansas City that not only watches science fiction movies – they dig into the actual science behind the plot and action and discuss real life examples. Allow me to introduce you to SciFlix.

SciFlix is a science fiction movie watching group in Kansas City, designed around taking the science, the theories, and the ethics in popular fiction and discussing it openly and honestly. Learn more on KCGeeks.com!

Planet Comicon Kansas City: Panels & Geek Swag!

This year for Planet Comicon Kansas City, I’m taking a bit of a different approach. Usually I spend most of my time at cons walking the show floor, checking out all the many goodies and catching up with friends. That’s all well and good, of course, but I usually wind up kicking myself after because I missed out on great panel discussions. With this year’s Planet celebrity lineup, I’m not making that mistake!

This week I sat down with the show program to choose my show itinerary – so many great panels overlap in one way or another, I had to make some tough decisions. Read on to find out where you can find me – and why you definitely want to!

Add Some Geek Flair to your Trivia Team Name!

Some friends and I are putting together a team for the Ultimate Geek Trivia Showdown at Planet Comicon on the 27th. As part of our planning, we had to come up with a team name. Given that it’s a geek trivia event, we did some research and brainstorming on geek trivia team names. I thought I’d share our brainstorming results with you, in case you’ll also be there, or if you’re just headed to a Geeks Who Drink or other trivia night, and want some geeky ideas.
