Finally, STAR is planning to go see Avengers: Age Of Ultron the week it comes out. If you are interested in seeing it with us, please fill out the form at goo.gl/PQDyuV.
STAR book club will not meet next Monday. They are to finish The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy for the following Monday.
Get your vocal cords ready, because this mission is STARaoke! We've collected a ton of sci-fi songs, including suggestions from our members, and now it's time for you to become a superSTAR! Join us for a night of music, fun, and, of course, science fiction!
I am a 20-year-old game and software designer and developer.
I enjoy programming, level design, and user interface/user experience design, and I would like to think I am quite good at those things—I have been teaching game and software design and development since high school. I also enjoy drawing, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, acting, and singing. I am not as good at those things, but I hope to get better in time. I also enjoy promoting wave, spinning poi, cosplaying, geeking out over sci-fi, and writing lyrics (usually parodies of existing songs) from time to time. And normal things, such as playing video games and reading.
If you are interested in some of the things I make, you can check out my apps, wave gadgets (for Google Wave, Shared Spaces, Apache Wave, and similar systems), Portal maps, and other tech shenanigans.
