Prelude: QAQN Media – Geek Dads Weekly #123

by Daniel M. Clark on May 29, 2012

In which Daniel and Drew talk about The Battle of the Blackwater, Comicpalooza 2012, Drew’s hectic travel schedule and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. It was an eclectic episode.

Greg Hoffman is on assignment at King’s Landing this week, we hope he survived the battle and will return next week.

We began with a rundown of this week’s episode of Game of Thrones, the wildly popular HBO program. The focus of the episode, titled Blackwater, was the siege of King’s Landing by Stannis Baratheon. Spoilers abound in our recap, so you’ve been warned.

Next, my weekend at Comicpalooza 2012. This was an especially important event to me, as it has sparked a resurgence in my desire to write. With more than a dozen educational sessions for writers – and not just writers of comics – it was an inspiration. I was fortunate to attend sessions run by one of my favorite authors, Timothy Zahn, as well as legendary science fiction author Larry Niven. I’d like to thank RJ Woods for an incredibly worthwhile three-part workshop as well. It is in this segment that I tease a bit about some future plans regarding QAQN and QAQN Media.

We finished up with a summary of Drew’s recent travels (Drew will be sending me some links later tonight, if you’re reading this, you’re early). No episode would be complete without a really out-of-left-field discussion, so after doing 35 minutes about Game of Thrones and science fiction, it only makes sense to talk about Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. Don’t worry, it all makes sense when you listen.

All this and more – thanks for listening! We’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave us a voice mail at 281-241-QAQN(7276). Also, you can email us at
