Sara’s Best of Season 2 – E05 Spirited Away


Cartoons are just not for me. I don’t even like the ones made specifically for adults. I don’t know why, it’s nothing personal, but I just can’t connect with the medium. But I do love Nathan Blackwell (have you guys seen his new Voyage Trekkers PSAs? They’re hilarious as always!), and when he wanted to educate a [geek] on Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, I volunteered as tribute.

E[G] Drinking Game S2 E05- Spirited Away

Last week on Educating [Geeks] guest host Nathan joined geek hosts Alice, Bri and Sara in a discussion of Sprite Away. Although we all confessed we’d prefer to be sober while watching the film — because it is just that GOOD — we did come up with the drinking game rules.

Meet Guest Host Nathan

Filmmaker Nathan Blackwell began his career like many of his counterparts … a manic eleven year-old running around with a camera, making terrible movies.  He’s since directed over forty short films, two low-to-no budget feature films, and several web series.  His productions have involved ninjas, gentleman super spies, cross dressers, rectal-probing aliens, face-melting nazis, suburban mad scientists, melodramatic role-playing nerds, magic-casting teenagers, zombies, and space men with ray guns.  He’s the co-creator, writer and director of the sci-fi comedy web series Voyage Trekkers.
