We had an historic moment at TimeGate 2013. For the first time, Doctor Geek, Mr. Flask, The First Mr. Creature and Madame Oracle (also the voice of DEUS-X) were together at a convention. It was an honor to have Doctor Geek’s Laboratory to be listed at the top of the hotel’s video marquee.
Our panel, Doctor Geek Live! The Science of Stargate was a lot of fun. It was great to see so many people enjoying our mix of science and fiction.
Sexy Professor (The River Song), the music heard in this episode, is from The Ken Spivey Band’s new album, The Universe Yields. Buy the album at kenspivey.com
This is a big day for me. My first book, Archaeology In Fiction, is now available via Amazon in both paperback and Kindle versions. I have taken my popular Archaeology in Fiction discussion which I have presented at various sci-fi and fantasy conventions and transformed it into an in depth discussion of Archaeology as it is depicted in fiction.
What is the truth? In this book we will explore:
• The fictions surrounding archeology
• Why we love and perpetuate those fictions
• What the truth behind the fiction really is
Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. Come along and explore both.
Will the Lab Staff reverse the mind swap? Can Mr. Flask perfect the Skills Booster before Claire arrives? What is Google’s connection to the privatization of space?
All these questions will be answered in the exciting season one finale.
In our latest episode, the lab staff meets Tom Shelley of Space Adventures. We learn about space tourism, and what it would take to go to the moon and beyond. Meanwhile, Mr. Creature boldly goes where no test subject has gone before!
In this episode Doctor Geek’s announcement regarding the lab’s summer convention
schedule is interrupted by Mr. Creature who has just been given the power to
duplicate himself. While Doctor Geek sorts out the chaos, sit back and enjoy
the interview with the creators of Broken Crown Games.
Their upcoming game, Escaping Titan, uses real science to support the fictional world created by The Broken Crown Event.
In this episode Doctor Geek puts the finishing touches on his new Sonic Special
Experimental Robotic Variable Dimension Omnitool or Sonic S.E.R.V.D.O (the “D”
is silent). To celebrate this latest exercise of applied geekdom, the lab staff
listens to the interview with Rita and Jason De La Torre, the hosts of the
Transmissions from Atlantis podcast.
Sit back and enjoy the discussion as we learn how they apply their geekdom by cosplaying, larping and building props, such as a full size TARDIS exterior, or an Atlantis themed home theater.
Episode 4 – Privatization of Space Investigation Begins
In this episode, the three part investigation into the privatization of space begins. Will it be possible to book a flight to the moon in our lifetimes? Does Mr. Creature have the RIGHT STUFF to be an astronaut? Why is Mr. Flask hunting rabbits? All these questions and more will be answered in this exciting episode.
