Geeking Out

  • Relevant and interesting: 8 Young Women Of Color Authors.
  • We still want Michelle Rodriguez to be Alej Muñoz, nth generation Puerto Rican NYC cop, but we’ll settle for Michael Ealy. Although this show technically is not a Robocop remake, just a show about robot cops, in a more or less literal sense.
  • People know Tracie Thoms from RENT and Death Proof, but now she’s slated to star in a new show described as a “dark soap opera.”
  • S3 trailer for Game of Thrones is here, and it’s a nice teaser, but could definitely use MORE DRAGONS.
  • Speaking of the series, these GoT coins are incredibly detailed and worth every penny (sorry).
  • NBC’s Believe is sounding more and more interesting, and now Jamie Chung has joined the cast. We’ll be keeping an eye on how the production of this series progresses.
  • The Mary Sue has a great write-up of the first female MMA UFC fight.
  • The Amazing Spiderman 2 has cast its Norman Osborne, and it’s seasoned actor Chris Cooper.
  • The Muppets… Again! will be bringing back one of the original female puppeteers, Louise Gold, and her character Annie Sue, rival to Ms. Piggy.
  • Guillermo Del Toro? Superheroes? We’re in.
  • Calling Science nerds! Check out Omnisci, a site where scientists can share data, methods, protocols, and review products!
  • Joan C. Williams has some insights into the gender wage gap.
  • Some notable Hispanics in STEM use their cultural intelligence to further science.
  • A lovely list of prominent Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (including our favorite, Mae Jemison).
