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.)
Comikaze Expo is already on the horizons — on November 1st to the 3rd to be exact! Of course, we will be present, running around, taking photos and filming our video interviews. We will be on the floor and in and out of panels for most of it. If you see us, make sure to ask for a Defective Geeks sticker!
You will probably spot us at panels like All Shapes and Sizes hosted by Leah Cevoli but on the last day of the convention, on Sunday at 5pm, you can see yours truly (the Space Pirate Queen!) seated at a panel called ‘So You Wanna Start a Podcast‘ in Room 308AB with all the greats — Crix Lee and Lawrence Young of Gecken, Vito Lapiccola of Comics on Comics, Chris Gore and Wes Calimer of Geek Hero and 1337 Lounge Live.
Should be a fun and good panel, so please come by and show some love!
See you at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo!
Last night, the 1st annual Geekie Awards took place at The Avalon in Hollywood and the show was hosted by the lovely, Alison Haislip. Stan Lee was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by Seth Green on stage and was completely delightful as per usual, singing an ode to geek he wrote himself to the tune of Yankee Doodle. The show was a lot of fun, smart and full of surprises.
Check out our photos from the night!
Friday night of San Diego Comic-con 2013 was legendary. It was possibly one of the best times I’ve had at the convention in all the years I was old enough to “party” during this nerd weekend. We started out at the Radical Studios x Ploom party, hit up Chris Gore’s book/comedy album launch event and then we ended up on a boat with Superman. I think my friends and I will tell and sing tales about that night for many, many moons.
On February 23rd, we returned to the iOWest to invade Hollywood along side some zombies. Chris Gore hosted a live PodCRASH! and the night’s topic was zombies and anything and everything that had to do with them. Gizzy B was among the participants on the PodCRASH zombie panel and all the panelists were competing with each other on who will survive and who will get “killed off”… just like in the movies.
Watch our live show from GEEKGIRLPALOOZA! with Chris Gore and our special geek girl guest, Annie Violet. It was a lot of fun for us to do this — our first time on the big girl stage! This show is all for fun so please, take it lightheartedly and we hope we’ll make you laugh with our antics. It all comes from a place of love.
If you can’t get the video to work, click here to go directly to PodCRASH’s YouTube channel. Enjoy! Excuse all our “Loki Moments”… or enjoy those too.
Our first show at the iO West with PodCrash! with Chris Gore was so much fun. I won’t give too much away about our conversation so you guys can watch the video or listen to the podcast later. Fortunately, it seemed that our live audience enjoyed it a lot, so we hope you will too. We had a lot of fun that night and I’m still giddy that they allowed us on a “grown up” stage — thank you, Chris and PodCrash crew!
Friend of the website, Annie Violet, joined us that night to help in the intense discussion of Lady Geek topics. She definitely brought on the adorable-ness that night.
For now, check out all our photos from the show below.
