Jar Jar, Cumberbitches, Fall TV season, Chris Hardwick = cylon, nerdy art, novel writing, and sundry murder & mayhem…all in a day’s work.
DCon is happening! November 9-10 in Pasadena. It’s awesome, hit us up if you’re going and we can hang. Don’t miss Ritzy’s inclusion in 99 Deaths of Jar Jar. Cumberbitches on Reddit. Are you one? Check Cumberbatch out in his AMAZING Reddit AMA.
Tom Hiddleston? Gem of a ging. Nuclear Gallery Big Bang Theory exhibit…RAD!
In LA? Take a lurid, disturbing, and very awesome Esotouric tour. One of Chris Hardwick’s clones will be on @midnight. The cylons look like us now….
Anyone want to join Lisa in NaNoWriMo? Let’s write a novel in November! The Night Circus, Like Water for Elephants, and many more novels got their start here. Hit us up on social media if you want to be writing buddies!
We love The Avett Brothers. Check ’em out on their site, and Ritzy suggests starting with one of the live albums.
We adore special guest and fellow nerd girl Ayleen Gaspar, wonder if Comic Con has jumped the shark, and geek out on watches, CPR, scary movies, and our various nerdcrushes.
You can find Ayleen on Toy Break (which kicks MASSIVE ass and you should run/not walk to see it if you haven’t yet), at October Toys, and show coordinator/HBIC at DesignerCon aka D*Con. If you’re in So Cal, you MUST check out D*Con: Comic Con minus the crush of people and heavy on toys.
At D*Con last year we loved Brandon Griffith’s Legos. Nerdgasm bukkake!
Don’t miss Sucklord and The Super Suck Up at this year’s D*Con.
Are you a Comic Con-er? Thoughts on the most recent Cons?
Ritzy loves male novellaSons of Anarchy (and especially Flip aka Tommy Flanagan). Flip. Not Phillip. Vannen Watches are cool – check out their Walking Dead and Descendants watches! Mama vs Mama. Just…don’t watch this shit before you go to bed. No Reservations. Rollin’ a tear that it’s coming to an end.
Do you need to be un-baby’d?
Your hostesses beat the LA heat with some fun listener feedback, Lisapalooza (TM), Stan Lee’s Comikaze, returning TV faves, and GZA. As an added bonus, we debate the pros/cons of freaky sex toys. (You’re welcome.)
GAME OF MFIN THRONES! We bid you adieu. Plus Mad Men, Kevin Smith, other podcasts we love, an aborted trip to the MTV Movie Awards, a LOT of people-whose-names-we-can’t-remember, and reading (it’s FUNdamental)!
Art Hustle cards announced. There will be – drum roll, please – a Ritzy Periwinkle card!
Have we mentioned lately that you should check out Hollywood Babble On, our favoritest podcast?
T.I. attended the True Blood premiere. Here’s a gallery of the pretty people in attendance.
Ritzy attended the Nerdist “live” podcast. We love Nerdist…episode 200, with Kevin Smith, was pretty awesome. Lots of talk about podcasting if you’re a fellow or aspiring ‘caster!
Lisa’s fave online message boards for TV: TV Without Pity!
The Nerd Out Summer Reading List: The Walking Dead Compendium 1. Good read, highly recommended. REAMDE Ready Player One Storm Front – Dresden Files Book 1
What up, nerds? We watched The Oscars – and a show with no “Drive” is a show we just cannot get behind – plus bring you up to date on all our TV faves (who’s on the bubble? who’s getting cancelled? what’s renewed?)…a service for which we anticipate you’ll be eternally grateful.
Also, hey, did you know we’re on Facebook and Twitter? Indeed! Hit us up, we’d love to hear from you.
We’ve been busy prepping for the Zombie Apocalypse aka ZA aka THE ‘POCALYPSE. But The Nerd Out gals are never too busy to nerd out…with the cock out.
LINKS AOS x Little Lotus – help Ritzy and Army of Snipers raise money to visit refugee camps @ the Thailand/Myanmar border and bring some art to the kids and peeps there.
We heart The Walking Dead. Did you see the webisodes? What do you think about the new season?
Pan Am may or may not survive being on “the bubble,” but those ladies did some CIA work.
Nightmares Fear Factory photos. See above. HOURS of enjoyment. Trust. (It took us at least an hour to pick a couple fave photos.)
Lisa read The Psychopath Test. If you have to ask: you aren’t one. Recommended! Zombie Buy: your one stop shop for the ZA. @zombiebuys on Twitter. Launching soon.
Want to experience the ZA? (“No, really? Are you insane?” – Lisa) Atlanta’s ZA takes you into a post-Apocalyptic city to experience it. If your undies can take it.
Breaking news: NEW GEORGE ROMERO ZOMBIE MOVIE.
We’re meeting TX’s Zombie Response Team on their swing thru So Cal! They sell some cool stuff and are folks after our own hearts. Interview to come…. NEED A HAND TRUCK? Ritzy Checks Your Tech for the best dolly (if you’re into lugging shit around, or if your man won’t step up [and if he won’t = different conversation]).
