Last week’s Friday Lightning received a pretty warm reception, so I’m up for trying Round 2.
I personally feel it’s a cool way to help the local Arizona geek community connect a little more, which is what (I like to think) this site is really all about.
So enjoy a light collection of buzz I’ve picked up over the week, but also feel free to add any more in the comments.
Steamcrow’s Monster Commute Book II Drive Ends Jan 31st!
- I’ve ordered mine!
- The Steamcrow team is cramming the value into a pre-order deal.
- Check out all the details, goodies, and package options at Steamcrow dot com.
The Midnight Movie Mamacita celebrates 5 years this February.
- Being a fan of truly awful and bizarre movies myself, I personally love that Arizona has her.
- And, apparently, has had her for five years now!
- Her website’s under construction, but be sure to follow her on Facebook and congratulate her.
- Now who’s up for some Troll 2?!
The Phoenix Comicon announced a lot of their music guests this week.
- And they may have more to come.
- Announced bands so far include Giant Girlfriend and Spawn Atomic, as well as locals Mega Ran, and Toy Box.
- Check out the full list on the Phoenix Comicon’s guest page.
Gotham City Comics got some press this week.
- Both Phoenix New Times’ culture blog, and Nerdvana stopped by the new shop.
- Check out both articles here and here, respectively.
- Then go check the place out. I’ve been and it’s pretty cool.
- Very cozy.
And just a reminder, I will be at the Alien Warrior Comedian next Saturday, the 29th. Let me know if you will be too because I’d love to meet/meet up with you!
Got any tips on the nerd scene in AZ? Want to get the word out on something?
