So I just saw The Lightning Thief musical. In case you’re wondering: it was phenomenal. It followed the book pretty well, the music was amazing (I want a cast recording so bad!) And it was super funny and exciting. If you can visit NYC PLEASE go see the show.
Today I wore my Winchester Bros t-shirt and my KAZ 2Y5 necklace, both of which I got at NJCon this year and which I was wearing for the first time. I knew Jared and Gen were in NYC and I was walking to the bus home, texting my friend jokingly that I was keeping an eye out for them. Two minutes after, I look up and I saw something familiar. A split second later I recognized who it was, and my legs legitimately turned to jelly and my heart felt like it had stopped. He noticed me before I even started walking up to him, and pointed at my t-shirt and gave me this big grin and said “Hey! Like your shirt!” And I said “Thank you!” and asked if we could take a photo. Gen smiled and offered to take it for me, and I asked her if she could be in it too, and she said “Sure!” I took out my phone and opened the camera, and Jared reached out and took my phone, saying with a little smile, “Here, let me take it. I’ve got longer arms!” And I said “Yeah, good idea. I’m too short.” And we took the photo and he said “Is that good?” And I said “Yes thank you!” He complimented my t-shirt again, and then noticed my necklace and said he liked it too. I told him “I just got them! At NJcon on Friday!” And he gave a huge smile and said “Oh cool! What’s your name?” I said “My name’s Tova!” And he said “Nice to meet you Tova, I’m Jared and this is Gen” and I replied “Oh, wow yeah, I totally didn’t know that” to which he started laughing, and as they walked away I told them I hope they have a good time in NYC, and they both smiled gently at me and walked away.
….I don’t think I’ll forget this for as long as I live.
The series will focus on the mysterious Shadow, a man who is released
from prison a few days early after serving a three-year sentence for
bank robbery when his beloved wife Laura is killed in a car accident.
Flying home for the funeral, Shadow is seated next to a man who
introduces himself only as Mr. Wednesday, and this man knows more about
Shadow’s life, both past and present, than is possible. Shadow comes to
learn that Wednesday is, in fact, the god Odin
of Norse mythology and that all of the gods that mankind has ever
believed in are alive in human form and live among regular people.
Shadow is soon thrust into a gathering conflict between the Old gods and
the so-called “New gods”, the gods of money and technology who believe
there is no longer room on Earth for the old gods.
There are so many amazing female superheroes that are being represented on both TV and in movies. Do you look forward to a time when it’s just not a big deal anymore, where it’s just sort of common place?
