Geeking Out About took a few […]

Happy Yuri Day!

In case Google’s doodle wasn’t hint enough, today was the 50th anniversary of Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s trip into space, the first human being to do so. Not only that, but when he left on the Vostok 3KA-3, he also became the first human being to orbit the planet.  In regard to his flight, Gagarin said: […]

What Kara Did on Vacation: “The Doctor Who Experience”

One of the things I love most about the renaissance of Doctor Who is that the people in charge now — writers and actors alike — were fans to begin with and know what fans want.  Up ’til now that’s manifested as letting viewers see Daleks vs. Cybermen, epic Time Lord battles, and two Amy […]

Comic Non-Sans: Katsucon Wrap-Up

Already there’s been a variety of opinion coming in re: how Katsucon’s Artist Alley was handled this year.  I’ve heard positives and negatives and neutrals, but one thing that seems to have calmed down (thank the li’l baby Jesus) is the whole fanart fiasco.  And yes.  It calmed right down after someone stepped up and […]

After director Satoshi Kon’s passing two months ago, the members of the non-profit responsible for running the Baltimore, Md. […]

Trisha’s Take: How to get the most out of one day at a convention, part 1

Approximately 10 years ago, I used to go to a lot of conventions, like the San Diego Comic Con (aka “Nerd Prom”) and Anime Expo. In fact, in 2001, I think I went to six different conventions on two different U.S. coasts. My most traveled year was 2003 when I was working for the now-defunct […]

Anime Mid-Atlantic 2010 in(verted) review

“Look over there, there’s a bunch of those weird cartoon people across the street.” I’d be lying if I said I could deliver a perfectly objective review of Anime Mid-Atlantic from a managerial standpoint.  For the last several years, AMA has been one of my “working cons” — I run karaoke and occasionally end up […]

Desert Bus for Hope 2 drives onto the Internet…for the children!

One of the best things about having a blog is that you can talk about things that may sometimes only be tangentially-related to the blog’s topic. Today, I’d like to talk about Desert Bus for Hope, a video gaming marathon for the Child’s Play charity, which was started by the guys at Penny Arcade, who […]
