Gizzy B reads from her private journal… from when she was in eight grade. Get caught in a dramatic and emotional journal of younger Gizzy as she fights for her right to watch vampire movies and have beautiful, viking-like hair. This journey will take you back to your own childhood when as children we really had nothing better to do. Fanfic Theatre: Chuck.

“It struck me as quintessentially human but also a bit absurd that we regularly torture ourselves with thoughts that seem to be at odds with our very own well-being. After all, if evolution is supposed to improve the species and make it more adaptable, then why aren’t we all perpetually happy and well-adjusted?”
-Romeo Alaeff, Artist’s Note
From a moose declaring that he drinks too much to a cockroach spewing sad, romantic lines like “Without you I am nothing”, Alaeff puts together a nicely illustrated, coffee table book filled with simple black and white drawings of animals and a collection of lines that you’ve heard yourself or other people say out loud.
Comikaze ExpoÂ came and went–it was a whirlwind of a weekend for our lady geeks. It was the first time that all of the Los Angeles based Defective Geeks went together as a team toÂ rigorouslyÂ cover an event. For two days, the Space Pirate Queen, Gizzy B, Fortune Cookie and Sailor Mizz ran about the convention floor to try and see as much as we can.
Comikaze was a definite success with 40,000 attendees, big guest stars and a constantly crowded exhibit hall. We did a million interviews and took a million photos. We will slowly but surely post video interviews as we get them together so stand by for some awesome content! A special shout out and thank you to the boys– Nick, Joaquin and Steve– from Red Sheep Productions for volunteering as our film crew for the entire weekend.
- The long line of people waiting to pick up their badges. Yikes!
For now, read each of our TOP FIVE highlights from the convention!
Part of the line at 9am on Saturday.
I literally had a quick whirl at Long Beach Comic Con this year. On Saturday night, I dropped by to hang out with the Guild of Extras. I unfortunately missed out on all The Guild events all day but I at least got to say hi and meet some people, plus I got to catch up with my friend, Nicole Eng. Here’s a great group shot taken with all of us plus Amy Okuda (Tinkerbella) and Robin Thorsen (Clara).

On Sunday, I stopped by for a couple of hours in the morning and hit the exhibition hall to say hello to everyone I could possibly know! Chatted a bit with Team Unicorn, Steve Niles,Â Nathaniel Osollo, Evan Spears, Rebecca and James Hicks (Little Vampires). I love that I can say hello to awesome people at a local convention. Long Beach Comic Con is a bit quieter this year but even though I was only there for a couple of hours, I did pay for a weekend badge. I’m all about supporting local comic book cons. It’s a little tough to get the whole team together during a Halloween weekend but hopefully next year, we will do a better coverage.
Again, I recommend this convention for anyone looking for a convention where they can enjoy the company of fellow comic nerds in a very relaxed environment.
I’m so excited to introduce to you our very first video interview!
On October 21st, 2011 at Meltdown Comics, Gizzy B and I were invited to the Launch party of Full Moon Horror. With the help of Red Sheep Productions, we were able to catch the spirit of the evening and all the Full Moon event had to offer. Being unfamiliar with most horror films, except main stream ones, Full Moon opened my eyes to a genre that I’ve always known about, but never fully appreciated.
In this video you will experience interviews with people like Charles Band, Tommy Chong, and David DeCoteau. I am looking forward to watching more Full Moon Horror features. I am also looking forward to watching some of David DeCoteau’s Rapid Heart Pictures, as they are specificallly directed at a female audience and isn’t that what were all about? Girl Geek Power!
Make sure to check out our first Full Moon Horror blog, including event photos.
