I was raised on Star Trek. As a baby, I’d watch the Original Series reruns and new episodes of Next Generation. I have very distinct memories of watching the finales of DS9 and Voyager. I enjoyed Enterprise as a teenager. And now, as an adult, I get to watch an all new Star Trek – Star Trek Discovery.
I live near Albany NY, and we just got a new area in one of our malls called 5Wits. I’d never heard of it before, but when they advertise things called “Drago’s Castle,” “Deep Space,” and “Tomb,” I knew it had to be interesting. And I was not wrong.
Wow, it’s hard to believe that Harley Quinn has been coming out for a year already! And since it’s been such a great year, HQ Annual #1 is a “rub n smell” spectacular! Apparently the title “scratch n sniff” is licensed, so this scenticular issue had to have a different way to say the same thing.
Fangirls! A few weeks back when Emily & I were in the Boston area for Boston Comic Con, we made the best decision ever. We decided to take the advice of my best friend who lives in the area to check out a pizza shop close by in Salem. Holy cow. Not only was the pizza at Flying Saucer incredible, the establishment itself was one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. If you’re looking for a great meal with a nerdtastic atmosphere where you don’t have to pay out the nose, the Flying Saucer is your dream destination.
Think Geek is one of the coolest nerd sites out there. It covers everything, from the Shire to a galaxy far, far away. I know we usually talk about clothing only sites, but this one is worth the exception.
Okay, Her Universe is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.
Created by Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Her Universe is the epitome of nerd wear. Ms. Eckstein’s line embraces the idea of being female and a nerd. She realized that women are often wandering about in ill-fitting men’s shirts because that is what is offered when it comes to Star Wars shirts. And that is how it was started.
This past weekend was the event all Central Florida [and beyond]-based nerds look forward to all year long: Mega Con! Unfortunately I work Friday and Saturdays, so I was only able to go on Sunday. From what I hear, Saturday was completely packed, so I guess I’m alright with missing all that mess… though, the best costumes are usually saved for Saturday. What I love most about Megacon is indulging in your favorite fandoms with like-minded folk, letting your nerd flag fly. It’s all so exciting: the costumes, the shopping, and the celebrity appearances! What I don’t like about Mega Con are the crowds, which is another reason I was fine with only going Sunday.
