Yesterday, I asked “What draws you to science fiction?” and received many terrific responses. One recurring element in a lot of your personal stories was the fact that a family member either shared your love for the genre or introduced you to it in some way. So, today’s question is: “Who introduced you to sci-fi?”
Wow. TimescapeHQ nearing 1000 followers in less than two days. Not bad for a show in early development!
In my case, it was my mom. She’s not much into sci-fi but a firm believer in reading and while I was growing up, she would gift me the classics: Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke, Ellison, etc. In fact, many of those vintage books still sit on my mother’s basement bookshelf.
Yesterday, we went out for lunch with one of Akemi’s absolute faves: actor Mickeey Nguyen (Make It Pop, Z-O-M-B-I-E-S, Utopia Falls). Following a veritable Vietnamese banquet at Oxtail Pho & Banh Mi, we walked over to Coffee Daklak for Vietnamese drinks. I usually get the Egg Coffee (espresso topped with whipped egg yolk and condensed milk), I recently discovered they do an Egg Chocolate as well (chocolate topped with whipped egg yolk and condensed milk). Mickeey had the Egg Matcha. Akemi watched. None of us tired the “cat’s poop coffee”. Maybe next time.
In addition to acting, Mickeey also teaches dance – and one of his classes happens to be Kpop Dance! I told him I was going to join, maybe start easy with Blackpink and eventually move up to intermediate Momoland or advanced Everglow. If this whole writing-producing thing doesn’t pan out, I’d like to be in a position where I can transition seamlessly into a second career as part of a Korean boy band.
