The geek scene in Arizona was not quiet this week. I picked up (or was sent) quite a few tidbits worth sharing for Friday Lightning.
Just goes to show what a great geek community we have here, I say.
Locally made monster flick Sacrifice is available for streaming from Amazon.
- Remember when I went to the premier? (I do…)
- Now you can have the same experience, almost.
- Here’s the link. Enjoy!
April’s 2nd Friday in Downtown Mesa is getting pretty over-the-top geeky.
- You already know about Steampunk Street II.
- Well it’s expanding into an Improbable Invention Competition at the One Oh One Gallery.
- And there’s also going to be Star Wars pop art, a SciFi Fashion Show, zombies, costumes, and local Steampunk band Future Kind will be playing.
- Plus Rusted Halo is putting out a call for even more SP and SF artists for a show.
Want to co-host an online pop-culture show?
- Atomic Comics and online men’s magazine The Rugged need someone to talk about comics, games, et al, on this thing called the internet.
- Here’s a video explaining the gig and information on how to submit.
Bookmans and The Midnight Movie Mamacita both posted pictures from their events last weekend.
- Check out some Flickr action from The Tucson Festival of Books.
- And raise an eyebrow or two at these pics from the Howard The Duck screening.
Next weekend’s Con-Ichiwa is still looking for some volunteers.
- If you’ve got time to spare down in Tucson, let them know!
- As usual, there are perks. Look over current opportunities here.
The International Horror & SciFi Film Festival posted their films/schedules.
- It’s coming up pretty soon, since it’s now part of the Phoenix Film Festival.
- Take a moment to browse through their list of flicks.
- Some of these look right up my alley with high levels of interesting, campy, and weird.
- (Speaking of, be sure to use Bookman’s checkout code for 20% off your film fest tickets.)
Pop Culture Paradise is looking for tabletop-gaming terrain painters.
- And they’re willing to shell out some store credit for your help.
- If you think you got the chops, let them know!
And the winner of last week’s Operation Octoshock participation contest is:
- Charlotte James!
- (I’ll email you to find out where to mail your Bookman’s Giftcard.)
