Well, this is going to be short “Nerdy Things To Do This Weekend” post. I almost didn’t bother until I remembered I’ve been posting these every Thursday morning since 2010 and haven’t missed a week yet. Can’t miss one now!
There will be panels, costumes, local legends, Star Wars Parties, after parties, Phoenix Ultimate Geek Smackdown, Timelord Parties, Adventure Time Raves, authors, brain eating, steampunk, gaming, a bunch of Bablyon 5 stuff, a massive zombie walk, The Geek Prom, anime, comics… You know, stuff like that.
Go forth and have fun, my friends!
High five me if you see me, seriously.
If you’re not too busy getting ready for Phoenix Comicon, here are a few reasons to get out and geek out:
I love a good conspiracy theory, who doesn’t?! But conspiracy mixed with Stanley Kubrick’s bizarre masterpiece The Shining? Like, woah man. Sign me up. Enjoy this documentary about theorist’s connections between the film and the ‘faking’ of the moon landing (and other historical events). At the Film Bar at 10pm, but screenings are all weekend.
When I was little I read all of the Oz books. Now that I’m a dad, I can’t wait to read them all to my kids. They’re really good. If you feel the same way, you may want to join other fans at Bookmans in Phoenix for a costume party. From 12pm to 2pm.
Hopefully Corey Feldman won’t make you perform the Truffle Shuffle to get in to see the Goonies with other fans. Cult Classics makes some pretty fun events out of watching great movies, so expect a little more than just a screening. Starts around 9:30pm at Tempe’s Pollak Cinemas. (Whew, I made it without using “Heeey yoou guuuuys!”)
Jesse James is filling up The Tilted Kilt downtown with comic artists, fans, cosplayers, media, and more. Celebrate the imminent comicon by drawing and talking comics with others. Starts around 6pm and goes all night.
Bam! See you guys next weekend?
