Starting next week, Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen will officially be co-hosting Super Geeked Up with the creator/cast/crew of the successful web series, Super Knocked Up!
If you follow our internet shenanigans, you know that we have been a regular guest co-host on the weekly web show about twice a month these past couple of months. The next live show on October 23rd at 8PM PST will be our first episode as the super-duper-official co-hosts of the show with creator, Jeff Burns. He thought it was a good idea to ask us to be on every week from now on. Shh, don’t let him know otherwise. . . ;)
We are joined by the Super Knocked Up cast and crew, namely the always hilarious and Dean Cain look-a-like, Mark Pezzula (Captain Amazing)– plus an amazing line up of weekly guests from actors, artists and other creators within the web world and geek community.
Please tune in every Wednesday at 8PM to watch us live on Google Hangout/YouTube! Subscribe to the Super Knocked Up youtube channel and follow @SuperKnockedUp on Twitter for updates. We interact with our audience live and take question suggestions for the show. Click here to see all the SGU episodes so far.
We hope to see Defective Geeks followers crossing over because we’d love to hear from you during the live shows!
Today is October 3rd. If you haven’t watched Full Metal Alchemist, that might not make sense to you. But if you have, this is a day remembered by fans. It is the day that Ed and Al, determined to restore their lives back to normal, burned down their home. I wanted to call out this day not only because it’s a part of the story, but also to take a moment to reflect on how awesome my life is because of FMA.
One of the many things I remember fondly from when I was a kid was watching Elvira with my uncle. I’ve always had a penchant for Halloween and anything affiliated with it, so Elvira and her show were like a dream come true for me. When I was eleven years old my uncle took me to Knott’s Scary Farm just so that we could see her live show there. After waiting in line we lucked out and got to sit front row center. The whole time before the show began we were so excited and once she finally appeared and I remember thinking, “Whoa, she’s real.”
To this day we still talk about how much fun we had at that show, and yes my uncle is the coolest guy ever for taking eleven year old Giselle to Knott’s Scary Farm to see Elvira. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be like her. She is gorgeous, hilarious, and has wit to match it. As I’ve gotten older I realize that not only is Elvira generally awesome, but she has taught me some valuable lessons over the years.
Here are the five things that Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, has taught me:
1). If You’ve Got it, Flaunt it
Elvira is not ashamed of her body. She has legs, hair, and a rack to die for and she’ll be damned if you don’t know it. She is proud of her figure and not shy about what nature (or perhaps Satan) has blessed upon her. Ladies, we need to follow suit. Let’s stop being so self-deprecating and ashamed of our figures and instead show the world our incredible assets and be proud of them. Screw shame and let the world know that you are beautiful and that you don’t feel the need to hide it. Embrace yourself!
