The Attack on Titan franchise has had an incredible history among manga and anime fans, ranging from the popular manga, to the hit animated show, to the 4 spinoff manga series that the franchise has inspired.
Celebrating their world premiere at the Egyptian theater in Hollywood on Tuesday, July 14th, the Attack on Titan live action movie (part one of two, guys!) held a press conference and interviews before their red carpet debut. DefectiveGeeks (well, just me…) came down to the press event to get some answers for us weeaboos. At the press conference was director Shinji Higuchi, producer Yoshihiro Sato, Eren’s actor Haruma Miura (dreamy, quirky, perfect etc etc), and Mikasa’s actress Kiko Mizuhara (beautiful, well-spoken, perfect RBF, etc etc.)
It’s that time of year, where once again, WE ENTER… THE SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON PARTY TIGER. The Party Tiger represents the true beast within us all, ready for action, scotch in hand, prepared to take one for the team and convince any doorman that THE TIGER IS ON THE LIST. Above all, Party Tiger is loyal to her friends, no matter what glitzy Hollywood party happens, she is loyal to her pack, and not a ditching digeri dingo! Parties are no fun without friends! So come with us… and EMBRACE YOUR INNER PARTY TIGER for Comic Con!!
If you remember anything from our post about last year at San Diego Comic Con, it’s that we all owe it to ourselves, our friends, and OUR (lack of) DIGNITY to party until our guts say STAHHP! We had a kick ass time hanging out with nerd personalities, celebs, and, most importantly, our awesome friends last year, and this year is definitely going to be no different… with a little planning! We’ve once again whittled down the list of parties to those that meet our Party Tiger criteria: LOW cost, WON’T be a giant B to get into, and ACTUALLY sounds like fun people will be there!
If you’re thinking to yourself, “Ho hum, maybe I won’t party too hard… I’ve been to SDCC plenty of times…,” THEN WE SAY UNTO YOU… “NAYYYY!”
Now listen up: With the ever increasing scarcity of hotel rooms, I’m sure more than a few of you readers will be stacked like sardines with 8 other people in a 4-person room, your sleeping space sectioned off under a table where you have a small array of snacks and water so you do not die during the night. LOOK, trust us, WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE, and that’s even MORE reason to say FAREWELL to sleep, and commit to being the best Party Tiger you can be.
And if you wanna know where WE are during the con, we will be all over social media , sharing party info, snapping pics of amazing nerds, and probably posting one too many selfies the drunker we get. TALLY HO:
Not even going to throw any pretense here — yes, all we did in this episode was pretty much talk/gush about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (plus Fast & Furious 6). Not even sorry.
“All’s well that ends better.”
TheOneRing.net hosted the last Oscar party for fans of the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit movies this past weekend at the American Legion in Hollywood. Traditionally, the fan parties took place during Oscar night so we can all gather and watch the award show together. This year, the party took place the night before the show on Saturday and I think it is because The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies didn’t get nominated for any categories this year. Boo-urns, Academy Awards!
Either way, it didn’t stop the fans from gathering to appreciate our fandom for one night together in fancy dresses and dwarf gear.
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.)
