Eh, this is a short one to share- if you haven’t already seen- that my SDCC post written for Action Chick went up recently- wherein I lament the lines, avoid Con Crud, and share what it’s like to attend (for those who’ve never been). Not much else to share in regards to this… I think that this finishes up the SDCC craziness for another year and thus you may now return to regularly scheduled lives. I hope you’ve enjoyed the tidbits and info as much as we here at NerdLush have enjoyed putting stuff together for you!
Just a quick post to let you know that yes, your hostess survived the annual nerd pilgrimage. I want to thank Stewart for stepping up and providing great news posts! I will be writing something ASAP to share the on-sight experience. And did you get a chance to read Emily’s addition?
I also want to mention that the interview I alluded to in the recent Random Questions post- talking with Tara & Yuri from Shelf Life, the series, went live on Action Flick Chick the other day. You can find part 1 here and part 2 here. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as we enjoyed doing it! It was a laugh riot- seriously. And definitely check out Shelf Life!
I’m exhausted from days on end of geekiness and crowds, so I’m going to take my brother back up north and then veg today as I get my thoughts in order. I’m afraid if I sit to write anything right now… it would end up pretty much gibberish!
You may recall that last week AFC ran my interview with several of the ladies from Cinemax’s Femme Fatales- as a capper to that interview I was asked to cover the season two premiere. The write-up for that is up on AFC. This would be my first on-site press gig as the interviewer (remember, for Spartacus, I took the photos) and would also be attending the screening and after-party… so I tracked down someone to be my assistant for this event- my friend Phil Xenidis (you might know him better as rock god, Phil X formerly of Powder, currently playing with his band The Drills and with so many other awesome artists). As I laughed with a mutual friend the other day- last year, he was playing with Bon Jovi, now he’s my bitch. Ha! But in all seriousness- I have to give Phil a lot of love for his help. He took some great photos for me and it was great to have a friend to hang out with. Continue reading
Not too long ago, I mentioned that Action Chick herself had given me a mission to interview some of the ladies of Femme Fatales. Well, today, the interview went live over at AFC. Excited to see this one go live for many reasons, but mostly because this particular interview actually was the most fun I’d had doing this sort of thing. Chatting with the ladies was awesome. They both had such great things to say- and the stories I got from Madison… HILARIOUS! Even better than that though is the fact that Madison and I are now friends and hopefully she will become a contributor here! Life is crazy sometimes.
So take a read-thru of the article, leave a comment, tweet/facebook it and share it with your friends!
Old news now, but I had the opportunity to see a screening of the recent Reese Witherspoon flick, This Means War, and review it for AFC. This mini post is just to link you to it… Though, I will say- for the record- I enjoyed this film immensely. I didn’t go into it with high expectations, but that didn’t stop me from having a good time. If you haven’t seen it, I do recommend it. I mean… don’t shell out $20 for it. Go to the cheap theater or wait for DVD/streaming. Unless you prefer the big fancy screens. Eh… do whatever you want.
A few weeks ago the Action Chick herself emailed me and asked if I would be up for some interviews. I said of course, but there was a minor problem at the time- I was in Monterey at a conference. Continue reading
So… years ago I was at SDCC with my brother and while waiting in line for a panel (the big line, for Ballroom 20) we started discussing the people CosPlaying that walked by. This conversation led to my Rules for CosPlaying. I’ve fine tuned them since then and after my recent visit to WonderCon 2012, I wrote them up for AFC. (AFC has a bigger audience so it was the better choice for posting, in case you were wondering why the original post is there and not here). In any case- it’s a humorous read, but I am very serious about every point I make. And if you CosPlay, or know someone who does, or even if you just like to dress up for Halloween, these rules may save your day! Check it out- leave comments!
One of the events I have covered fro AFC at this point was the Kevin Smith- Live From Behind “screening”. You can read the actual write-up of it on AFC’s page. Pretty much I covered every important aspect plus my reactions to the event in that write-up. I would like to state for the record- at this time, I still have not seem any episodes of Comic Book Men, nor do I plan to.
