The Space Pirate Queen admits that she watched AND enjoyed the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and is now officially going to get kicked out of Nerd-dom. We also discuss the relationship between news and media — plus Pilbeam’s first time at a Ren Faire! Fanfic Theatre: Fast and Furious x Twilight.
That is basically how I felt after San Diego Comic-con this year — decapitated and dead.
I got lucky and arrived at the Sleepy Hollow Virtual Reality Experience at the Petco Interactive Zone when the cast & crew arrived to get interviewed and their photos taken. Talked about perfect timing as I waved my fancy press badge around and didn’t have to line up to get my head chopped off by the Headless Horseman! I have become a big fan of the show so this was a big treat for me. The Oculus Rift VR was pretty popular this year and the Sleepy Hollow version was c-r-e-e-p-y. I admit. I got a little nervous. You can check out a video about it on the Fox website right now.
Check out the photos of the creators and cast of the shows that I managed to snap. Includes Orlando Jones, Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie and Lyndie Greenwood.
Holy cow. The Geekie Awards were pretty dang fun.
Now in their second year, The Geekie Awards, or “The Geekies” as most people call it, is a celebration of independent nerd-dom, with categories such as “Geek of the Year”, “Best Cosplay,” and “Best Comics & Graphic Novel.” Hosted at the beautiful Avalon theater space, this event was classy, nerdy, and full of weird little surprises. (And yes, that is an Iron Throne made out of Gibson guitars up top.)
To celebrate the release of Ellen Hopkin’s Rumble and to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of her first New York best seller book, CRANK, we get to give away some pretty awesome prizes to one of our readers!

Do you love Star Wars? Do you love Disney’s animated musicals? Ever thought you’d see the two combined? It’s the mash-up video you didn’t know you needed until right now.
Star Wars the Musical was created by musician, George Shaw and if you watch Geek & Sundry’s Tabletop with Will Wheaton, you’ve probably heard some of his music. George answers a few question for us and he talks about how he got into writing music for the geek community and what inspires him.
Watch the video and then check out our interview with George after the jump!
