1. Plants vs. Zombies 2 Takes Over Seattle!

    August 26, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Nerd Topics, YouTube videos by Kristina Horner

    The new Plants vs. Zombies game from PopCap came out last week, and being from a native Seattle game company – they celebrated the launch accordingly:

    Plants vs. Zombies 2 takes over the Space Needle

    Many have said in the past that the Space Needle looks more like a space craft than any sort of human building, and for this short time – they were right! The zombies have left their warning for our poor city, and now all we have left to do is fight back.

    And fight back we will! In fact, I started playing Plants vs. Zombies 2 around the time this Space Needle stunt happened, and decided to film the experience for use on my game channel, Team Hypercube. I’m embedding the first video below if you’re interested, and be sure to subscribe to the channel if you want regular updates when new videos go up.


    This is one of my favorite new publicity stunts to date. What sort of interesting marketing have you seen in the past that compares to this? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Look #4: Legally Blonde Opening Night!

    July 28, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Fashion/Beauty, Outfit of the Day by Kristina Horner

    When your best friend is a choreographer, you see a lot of opening nights for various musicals. You also spend a lot of time getting your fingers crushed during big dance numbers, in anticipation that every lift, every turn, every step goes off without a hitch. This was the case on Saturday when I attended the opening for Legally Blonde, the kidstage performance that’s kept me from seeing Eia for most of the last month.

    The show was so much fun, though. If you’ve never gotten to see the musical version of Legally Blonde, you’re seriously missing out. It has all the cleverness and heart of the movie, but with show stopping dance numbers, hilarious songs and amazing sparkly costumes around every corner.

    My only regret about the whole experience is that I didn’t think to wear pink. Who am I?

    What I’m wearing:

    • Turquoise floral dress from Herberger’s
    • Medium brown cowboy boots from Forever21
    • Funky pink and cream satchel from Wholesale-Dress.net
    • Tortoiseshell sunglasses from Forever21
    • Unicorn necklace sent to me from a fan

    What’s your current favorite new musical? Let me know in the comments!

  3. Nordstrom Anniversary Gift!

    July 26, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Fashion/Beauty by Kristina Horner

    I recently received a vague email from Nordstrom. I have to say, one of the strangest things about being an online content creator lately is adjusting to the concept of conversing with companies as if they are sentient beings on our level of internet-dom. If you follow @TacoBell on twitter, you know what I’m talking about. Anyway, I got this email in my inbox, and it informed me that Nordstrom likes what I do online and wants to send me a gift in honor of their Anniversary Sale!

    I figured hey, I can totally live in a world where people send ME presents for THEIR anniversary. So of course, I accepted.

    A mere couple of days later, a box full of goodies appeared at my door:


    In the box was:

    • Bright pink Nike Free 5.0 running shoes
    • Nail polish in “Mint condition”
    • Hanky panky low rise undies
    • Clear plastic beverage tumbler
    • Canvas beach bag
    • Cutesy magnets

    Thanks, Nordstrom! Good luck with the #NSale, and I can’t wait to take these fierce new shoes out on the street! Good thing I’ve been putting off investing in good running shoes! 😉

    This weekend is more Job Hunters filming; we’re actually finishing up one of my favorite episodes of the season this Sunday. Only a few more shoot weekends left… so crazy!

    I’m curious, since this blog is so new… what kinds of posts are you more looking forward to or hoping to see? I’ve been out of the blogging world for so long that I’m really interested in your opinions!

  4. Look #1: Mustaches & Miniskirts!

    July 24, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Fashion/Beauty, Geek Events, Outfit of the Day by Kristina Horner

    Hello, and welcome to my first “Look” post! I’ll be posting “Outfit of the Day” entries anytime I wear something particularly fancy, when I’m at important events, or when I go to costume or themed parties. This first post falls into that third category. Last night, my friends and I had a “mustaches and miniskirts” party as a sort of going-away soiree for our friend Kayley. Both mustaches and miniskirts were required of everyone in attendance.


    We had a bit of a tough time convincing one of the boys to don his miniskirt, but most people were pretty on board with the whole idea. Especially Gale. We couldn’t get him to take his off (though this may have had something to do with the fact that his stand is much wider than the skirt in question)!

    Anyway, the mustache was obtained for free at the LeakyCon mustache world record event, the skirt was a thrift store find and the vest is Forever 21.

    What’s the craziest themed party you’ve ever been to?
