In this episode the girls discuss all the recent movie trailers including The Hobbit, Tusk, and most importantly 50 Shades of Grey (don’t deny it, you’re excited too). Then SPQ and Gizzy B discuss the emotional fangirl tears they experienced in Hall H at SDCC during the Marvel panel. Also, raccoons the size of grizzly bears? What??
During Wondercon 2014, an epic battle began between Chubby Bunny, Yume Ninja and Gizzy B and that fight will continue at San Diego Comic-con this weekend. Convention Bingo is coming back and we want you to play with us this time! Click here to get the official Defective Geeks bingo cards. Feel free to make your own and share them with us as well!
Don’t know how to play this game? Watch the first round:
May the best con-goer wins. Good luck, geeks!
There are three types of San Diego Comic Con attendees:
1. Pokemon Masters: “I GOTTA CATCH ALL OF THE RARE POKEYMANS/LIMITED GOODS/ COLLECTIBLE ITEMS!!” You’ll see these fine folk lined up in the convention hall awaiting their preciousssss. They probably don’t talk in ALL CAPS but.. they’re THINKING IN ALL CAPS.
2. Die Hards (aka Bruce Willys): “I must attend all pertinent panels, meetings signings, and appearances of the show/series/comic/subculture that I am into. Otherwise, I CANNOT CALL MYSELF A TRUE FAN.”
3. Party Wolves: “Where. Da. Party. At.” Yeah, we sort of care about the other stuff, but mostly we wanna party with our nerdy selves.
Although we here at Defective Geeks are an equal mix of all of these types of nerdy personas, this post will focus on the most obscure of the three… LOS PARTY LOBOS EXTREMOS.
Comic Con is all about fandoms, but it’s also about getting to party with your best nerd pals, and hopefully scoring some free refreshment all while rubbing elbows with celebrities from the series/title/films/books you love. While the list below certainly isn’t comprehensive, it’s definitely refined down to the ones you can actually expect to get into with a wee bit of effort! Remember to pace yourselves, party animals. Thursday has the most parties, and Saturday the least, which means the chances of you maxing out and tossing cookies before the week really gets started are high! BEWARE THE PARTY FOUL. Party responsibly, and bring water with you EVERYWHERE.
And if you wanna know where WE are during the con, we will be all over social media shenanigans, party info, and embarrassing photos:
Party hardy list after the jump!
San Diego Comic-con fever is slowly creeping up on us here at Defective Geeks. Do you think you’re prepared to survive the ultimate nerd weekend?
