Today I’m driving up to Pittsburgh for the annual Anthrocon convention in an effort to bring the fandom and the furries a little closer together thru open understanding, and truly honest reporting. Get updates as I go and perhaps some live tweets throughout.

This weekend marked the passing of yet another year for the Philadelphia Comic Con. Once a con plagued by terrible under-attendance and being kinda under-whelming in general, I must say has shown up this year in quite a grand fashion! Unlike San Diego, where everyone makes their big announcements and the entire con has shifted focus from comics to general pop culture, Philadelphia Wizard World contains not a single gaming console, major network, or Sony branded anything on the floor. You won’t find 300 person long lines for swag giveaways at the G4 booth, and i find that quite refreshing. Just comics, toys/t-shirts sporting comics, the creators of said comics, and the fans that love comics; what can i say it’s a freaking comic convention. This con is perfectly suited to it’s size. Is the floor crowded? Yes. Claustrophobicly so? No. Are there lines to get into the panels? Yes. Is anybody left out because the room was full? No. This was really a joy to be at. Also because there’s no big spoiler alerts, new announcements, or exclusive toy lines to write about; figured I’d just give you some pictorial love of the panels I attended along with some of my favorite quotes from each!
Happy Geek Pride/Star Wars/Towel/Disc Day! That’s a lot of geeky love to show, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet; go out, do something geeky, and be proud of it! Being a nerd is all about being unashamedly passionate about what you LOVE! Enjoy the below gallery of me at some of my geekiest moments; hopefully it inspires you to do likewise! Stay nerdy my friends.
Just wanted to take today to say congratulations to the cast of the guild. Their music videos combined on youtube hit 24 million views today!
For those unfamiliar, The Guild is a web series started by Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible) that follows the misadventures of her and her fellow gamers as they team up to conquer “the game” (not WoW they’re VERY careful about not using any proper names) and survive real life. What started as a modest undertaking and passion project has since grown into it’s 5th season, being featured on msn and xbox live, and perhaps the most successful web series to date!
