Welcome to our first podcast. We are Nate, Andrew, and Amanda and we are the creators of the succesfully nerd blog Geek Triumvirate. In our inaugural podcast we dicusss Destiny and its comparison to World of Warcraft, how we all met, and what new things are there to see at Universal Studios Orlando. Enjoy the conversation and look forward to many more in the future.
A friend of the blog recently visited Universal Studios Orlando and share with us his pictures from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. The dragon on top of Gringotts is impressive. Look forward to seeing it in person next year.
This past weekend I visited Universal Studios Orlando to experience the newly opened Transformers The Ride and expanded Simpsons area. The ride was fantastic. Combining ride layout of Spider-Man 3D with over the top giant robot fighting. I particularly like how you felt overwhelmed by the size of the Transformer due to the massive 3D screens used on the ride. Because the ride just open on the 20th the line was crazy. Thankfully they have a single rider line that cuts wait time down to nothing. Afterwards I picked up my exclusive Autobots pass holder decal and headed to Simpsons to see the newly added Moe’s Tavern and restaurants. To further expand The Simpson area they closed the International Food and Film Festival and converted it into various Simpsons themed eateries. Including a Moe’s Tavern, Krusty Burger, and Cletus’ Chicken Shack. Unfortunately I could not try any of the Duff Beer at Moe’s because I would have had to wait until the afternoon to be serve. However a friend visiting the park on the same day said it was delicious. I did however try a Lard Lad giant donut (for only $4.95!) and it was amazing.

We started by having to get our tickets, except for Theresa, who had already pre-ordered her ticket, so she had to get into a advance ticket line which ran almost the entire length of the convention hall.
After being over-stimulated with amazing cosplayers, we ventured through the convention floor taking in all the sights of toys, costumes, and artwork galore.
In the afternoon we attended a panel featuring David Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch, and Paul Blake. Better known as Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Greedo from Star Wars.
