Hello fellow nerds! My name is Bethany and NerdLush recruited me to write a blog about my San Diego Comic Con experience this year. First, a little bit about myself- I am a book nerd, TV junkie, and general superhero fan. I have been attending Comic Con the last 7 years, and it’s always been an adventure. This year was no different.

What better way to relax at the beach or pool than with a good book? A lot of people still consider summer books as throwaway novels, but that doesn’t mean those are the only types of books you can read during the warm months. Continue reading

You’ve heard about the Captain Marvel movie coming out; heck, we’ve all heard about it, and with fresh news come fresh rumors. Debates about how the film will fit into the Marvel Universe Franchise, who the prospected (and possibly female) directors are, and even what exactly the movie will be about has got the Internet twittering, but my mind is focused on one critical thing: who is going to play the first ever live-action Carol Danvers?

Guest Post!!~ Geek Mom Raising a Geek Baby

16 Feb

NerdLush friend, Jackie, is back with another guest post– this time she returns to the topic of raising a baby in a world of geek.

********************************************************************

I’ve attempted to write this piece for several months now. It first started out as a piece on my experience taking a toddler to the Chicago Comic Con back in August. Then it evolved into a piece about finding “geek” and “super hero” clothing that’s for girls and doesn’t include a tutu. Then I sat back and realized I’ve written on both of these topics before.

She is also the host of “Glue Guns and Phasers,” a Star Trek crafting series and is an actor and producer of the horror short “Pray With Us.” She has written for TrekMovie.com, Libido Magazine, Pet Age, Pet Services Journal and Chicagoland Tails to name a few. She refers to herself as “The Girl With The Twin Peaks Tattoo” and has been a fan of the series since she was 9 years old.

**********************************************************************

“Damn fine cup of coffee!” “Let’s rock.” “That gum you like is going to come back in style…”

By now, you have heard every clichéd Twin Peaks quote under the sun since last week’s announcement that the show will return to TV in 2016 with the original creators, Mark Frost and David Lynch, at the helm. The news sent the internet into a cherry pie-induced sugar high and the world was partying like it was 1991.

Annabelle is a prequel to The Conjuring which was a surprise horror hit from last year directed by James Wan. This time around, John R. Leonetti, whose previous directing efforts include Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and The Butterfly Effect 2, takes the reins of what could turn into the latest genre franchise. The movie stars Annabelle Wallis (Yes, her name is Annabelle), Ward Horton, Tony Amendola, and Alfre Woodard. Continue reading

Guest Post!!~ 5 Questions We Want Answered In Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The much anticipated season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuts this fall, and we fans are beyond excited! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is written and produced by Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). The show was met initially with criticism, perhaps due to sky-high expectations from Marvel die-hards.

I personally enjoy Whedon’s sort of dorky, campy humor. Whedon was the producer of the cult classic (and one of my favorite shows) “Firefly” which was tragically canceled after only one season. Firefly fans are probably better equipped to enjoy the pace and tone of AoS than strict devotees to The Avengers franchise.

Despite initial criticism, AoS has pushed on, and delivered an excellent end to Season One. They won over many of their prior naysayers, and shocked loyal viewers with new plots of intrigue, danger, mystery and unexpected betrayal. They left fans with a lot of questions. Here are my top 5: Continue reading
