July is well on its way (I see you, July) and you know what that means… San Diego Comic-Con is coming up. I am a casual collector and have reigned in a lot of nerd, but there are just some things I absolutely need in my life. By need, I mean, I really, really, really want it.
This year, UCC Distributing is bringing a lot of their usual exclusives to the con but one item has caught my eye.
This. I want this. SO MUCH.
Bob’s Burgers fans will recognize this as Louise’s precious night light companion, Kuchi Kopi! This is definitely going on my shopping list this year.
UCC Distributing will also be carrying exclusives from Steven Universe (!!!), Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon and many more geek favorites. You will find them at Booth #5625.
I am never more happy than when I am basking in my Animaniacs nostalgia.
When I found out that Rob Paulsen (Yakko) and music writer, Randy Rogel, teamed up to put together a full, live orchestra concert to perform songs from the show live on stage… I had to be there. The show, as expected, was absolutely FABOO!
Praise be to the moon god. IT’S FINALLY HERE! Today, fans of Sailor Moon got their first look at the new anime, “Sailor Moon Crystal,” the reboot of the entire franchise, which begins airing July 5th.
Of course, when a cherished, nostalgic, and altogether life-changing anime gets redone, there’s gonna be a couple of squeaky wheels. Let’s face it: long time fans of the franchise have TWENTY YEARS of nerd feels about Sailor Moon! We all have memories of how it shaped what we thought anime was, or how it changed our lives. Hell, my username since I was 13 has been “IAMCHUBBYBUNNY” specifically because I identified with Usagi’s clumsiness and was so in love with Sailor Moon. (Spoiler: I’m 32 now so that’s a realllllyyyy long freaking time to stick with a name as silly as that!)
The winter anime season has already kicked off! I have gone through the lists and scoured through my wish list – I’ve shortened it some because I had way too many to watch in the fall, and actually ended up cutting some out because I had been on the fence about watching them anyways, and ended up disliking them quickly. This time I have only selected the ones that I legit am excited about. As a reminder, I am going into these shows a little blind, based on just what I see in the trailer and a wiki blurb.
Space Jam sequel? YES, PLEASE, A THOUSAND MILLION TIMES! The Lady Geeks get a little excited over this news, plus we discuss the best geek activities during rainy days. Fanfic Theatre: Avengers.
Ever wonder what it sounds like when three girls are watching Disney movies while drinking sparkling wine? Well, here at the Defective Geeks podcast we are constantly striving to make your dreams come true. Listen to the Lady Geeks make awkward, tipsy commentaries while playing a drinking game to Pocahontas and fail at not being offensive.
