Out and About in the Central Valley- Modesto Con

19 Jul

Since moving HQ from LA to the Central Valley in 2014, we’ve tried to ensure that we take in the local nerdy scene. Growing up in the area, I remember having a few decent events when I was a kid and then nothing for a solid 10 years. Thus… it’s been a lot of fun checking out some of the local conventions and seeing the community grow.

We recently had the opportunity to hop in the car for an hour plus drive to head to Modesto for a convention. Now… I cannot remember the last time I actually stopped the car in Modesto… but it’s one of the little towns in the Valley with a lot of fun history. You might remember it as the town from American GraffitiContinue reading

ZappCon Year 2

24 Oct

This past weekend we had the opportunity to attend a local conventions second year event. We were able to attend last year and so were able to see how the event had grown. ZappCon, year 2, took a solid step into growing as an event we plan to attend for the foreseeable future.

Guest Post!!!~ Oreo.. Oreo.. How tasty art though, Oreo?

2 Sep

Today a new guest poster joins NerdLush, Madame Laura! In her own words- “I worked for several years at an environmental laboratory but am currently a stay-at-home mom of 2. My all-time favorite geeky TV series are the X-Files and anything Star Trek from TNG onward. I am a long-time World of Warcraft player and have made many awesome friends through the game, and enjoy other Blizzard games as well. And my very favorite Nintendo character is Yoshi.” Welcome, Laura!

So, a confession..  I’ve developed a weird thing.  A thing about OREOS.  Oreo has come up with tons of limited-edition flavors over time, and I am apparently their target audience.. I see a new package, and I have to buy it.  Those marketing people know how to get me, and these special flavors seem to be popping onto store shelves more and more frequently in recent months.  My friends have noticed this phenomenon through my numerous Facebook pictures and posts, and I have been requested to share my opinions of these oddities.  I am going to go one geeky step further for NerdLush, and make recommendations on which of my favorite tabletop games would be the best side dish to accompany each unique flavor.
