Fandemic Tour- Sacramento, a first stop of fun

16 Jul

Recently, we had the pleasure of checking out the first stop on the Fandemic Tour, with a quick trip up to Sacramento to help inaugurate a new convention. Overall, it was quite an enjoyable convention and it is recommended to check out if a stop happens to be near you. Though as it was the first event, there are a few things that could be improved. We’ll touch on the good and bad in a bit. Continue reading

Ring Psychology: Royal Rumble 2017

31 Jan

Hello, Nerd Lush readers. My name is Billy, and I’ve been invited to begin a new column on the site.

Most wrestling sites and dirtsheets give a play-by-play of the action. I won’t be doing that… mostly because I’m too busy marking out (geeking out) to actually take notes about what’s happening. Instead, I’ll be reviewing the shows in terms of Ring Psychology. What is Ring Psychology, you might ask? Continue reading

ZappCon year 3

5 Nov

Last month we had the opportunity to attend the third year of ZappCon. This is still a small regional convention in Central California, but since it’s first year it has grown nicely- without getting two big for its britches.

Gather forth your Heroes, your villains, and all the wine!

2 Sep

Ventured towards California’s coast over the weekend to attend the 2nd Heroes and Villains Fan Fest (HVFF) in San Jose. This is a convention that has been growing steadily since its first event a year and a half/two years ago. It was a good weekend- not perfect- and something we’d love to check out again.

So Who Is Watching SUMMERSLAM 2015 Today?

23 Aug

As I write this there are still a few hours before the show begins… and I cannot believe I am excited to watch WWE. This will be the third WWE thing I have ever seen. The first was two weeks ago when Stephen Amell (“Oliver Queen” on Arrow) apppeared on WWE RAW. He ended up in the ring beating “Stardust” and being pulled off by “security”.  Continue reading

I’ll be watching Capitol Fourth on PBS later- my favorite concert of the year.

Halloween has come and gone…

3 Nov

Not much happened for NerdLush in the way of scares this year. There was a friendly movie night with screenings of Slither and Cabin in the Woods, but that was pretty much it until this weekend when on vacation to the city of Angels.

A visit to the entertainment capitol of the world- or at least that’s the claim- came full of shrieks and screams as Universal Studios Hollywood was once again transformed into “Halloween Horror Nights”. Of the four in the party, all but one had been before, and two were not fans of things jumping out and scaring them. But the end report from all four was that it was a good and fun evening of scares.
