Calling all Whovians! This Saturday, August 30th, Golden Apple Comics is showcasing the world’s largest bluetooth speaker – which just so happens to be a talking, moving, menacing life-size Dalek.
@midnight comedians Chris Hardwick, Paul F. Tompkins, Jen Kirkman, and Mike Lawrence entertained me for an hour last Wednesday, at no cost to me.
Instead of songs about bad relationships or drug use, they write geek music about Pokemon and Star Trek.
I’ve got some events and deadlines coming up in the next couple of months, so it’s crunch time. First, at the start of October I’ll be headed to Seattle for Geek Girl Con with my friend Clare. I’m pretty excited about this, especially since I had a rather disappointing time at Comic-Con this year. It’s also my last big ticketed event until I get a new job.
In addition to their fall pilot screenings and special events year round, the Paley Center also hosts the annual Paley Festival, and Tuesday night I went to the Saban Theatre on Wilshire for their panel on Community.
Which shows Paley features during PaleyFest changes every year, but Community was invited back for the second year in a row – whether or not it has the ratings numbers, there’s no denying the show has the fans.

I’ve been remiss with this blog (and have been waiting a week to use the word ‘remiss.’) I can’t even entirely blame my thesis. The last couple of weeks have been occupied with Top Secret Work of a Holiday Nature and Top Secret Work of a Nostalgic Nature, neither of which can be discussed on a public forum. Yet. (There are spies everywhere.) Also, the acquisition of Angry Birds for…
I didn’t watch the Emmys Sunday night since I was at a family party to celebrate the birthdays of two cousins, but was well informed by Twitter as to the winners, the losers, the outfits, and what YouTube videos I would have to watch in the morning. Aside from Jim Parson’s win for The Big Bang Theory, I was unmoved by the results. Though I felt Lost deserved more recognition for…
Tonight I’ll be reading at the Barnes and Noble at the Grove with some of my fellow USC graduate students, and a featured faculty member. If you’re an agent, you should definitely come and soak up this talent (and by ‘this talent,’ of course, I mean me.)
