Let’s admit it, geeks. These days, we take ourselves, our community and our fandom way too seriously. We are a sensitive bunch with teddy bear hearts and we want to love our comic books so bad it makes us cry some times. With that said, a new web series premiered online today and it is called Geek Cred. Now, the word ‘cred’ already implies things on many different levels. It’s a brave word to use in a title that also has the word ‘Geek’ in it and for many, it might be taken on as a challenge.
You can watch the first episode now online but I had seen the show last Sunday at the premiere party with the cast and crew at Busby’s in Los Angeles. How did I feel after I saw it? I felt pretty darn good.
In this episode, Gizzy B explains to the Space Pirate Queen how Taylor Kitsch has such perfectly shaped man arms. Also, are women still hard to animate?
The Rise of O-Girl

Trigger warnings: This review contains explicit content (sex!) and discussion about rape. Continue at your own risk.
The Rise of O-Girl is a short story about a super heroine whose secret power is lightning orgasms that fry her partner to a crisp. She’s on a vendetta to find her sister’s murderer and will stop at nothing to get her revenge. Her origin story as a super hero is also covered.
At 22 pages, this is a pretty quick read for anyone, and if you’re just in it for titillation, you won’t have to wait long. There are lots of sex scenes starting from page 1. I’d say the price point of $2.99 is a bit high for 22 pages, but I’m a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to buying books.
Japan LA, a store of all things adorable in Los Angeles, celebrated their 8th year anniversary. It’s been awhile since I’ve attended a Japan LA event, but they always will hold a special place in my kawaii heart. Hello Kitty was in attendance to take photos with guests as well as singer, Traci Hines and all-around-amazing-person, Jenny Rae.
Yes, much shopping was had on my part and customers who spent more than $30+ got a free gift bag as well. I managed to snag a bag of full of Rilakkuma goodies!

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing actress Amanda Grace Cooper who stars in the horror comedy All Cheerleaders Die which you can go see in theaters now! In this interview Amanda talks about her role Hanna in the movie, what it was like having to deal with all that icky fake blood, what inspired her to become an actor, and her personal passions like writing vegan cookbook for kids. She was very sweet and a lot of fun to chat with (and we also got to bond over knitting). Check out the interview to learn more about her!
What inspired you to become an actor?
Well both of my parents are set decorators. My dad worked on the set of the soap opera The Young and the Restless for years and my mom did as well. When I was younger I would literally just walk the sound stages and I’d watch the actors. When I was three or four I just thought the actors were playing around and having fun and that’s ultimately what I wanted to do! I got involved with dancing and just performing competitively and then when I was seven or eight years old I literally turned to my parents and said, “Look, I want to be an actor. This is what I want to do.” Then they enrolled me in acting class. It all started there.
Tell me about your role Hanna in All Cheerleaders Die.
It’s kind of interesting because I actually came in to read for the role of Leena which I was not right for and they envisioned me as Hanna. Hanna is an average teenager who is just trying to fit in and she’s constantly rejected and the only people who take her in are the cheerleaders on the cheerleading squad because her sister happens to be on of the head cheerleaders. They put Hanna in the mascot outfit as a form of acceptance, although the joke is on Hanna because nobody else would want to do that. She falls into this love triangle between her sister and her sister’s boyfriend because she is deeply in love with him.
