EVENT: My New York Super Week To-Go-To Events

Sunday, September 28, 2014

New York Comic Con is less than a month away, and the nerd in me can barely contain herself. Although I had my heart set on cosplaying as Batgirl this year, it looks like I may have to step it down a notch and cosplay some version of Barbara Gordon instead (there's always next year...).

Aside from all the panels I've lined up in my schedule for NYCC weekend, there are some great New York Super Week events I'm hoping to add to my busy #geekgirl calendar! Whether or not you can make it to the convention, these events are definitely worth checking out!

Here are my top three choices! 

  1. Black Girl Nerds Podcast
    I've been following BGN on twitter for some time now, but haven't had a chance to listen to any of their podcast shows until recently. I thought it only right to kick off the series out of order, starting with their "Nerd Credentials" show. Any nerd/geek can relate, but there's definitely something to be said about the Latino/Black nerd experience and the panel had a GREAT way of talking about all angles! Regardless of your race or gender, you'll find BGN's topics interesting and the panel discussions entertaining!~ During NYSuperWeek they're holding a LIVE podcast event that I'll have no problem shelling the $10 for! :}
  2. Geek Girl Brunch Presents: Fan Girls’ Night Out
    Geek? Check. Girl? Check. Brunch? Yes, please! Really looking forward to meeting some great nerdettes at this event and having a blast!~

                 
  3. The Art of Paigey! On the Stagey! This is NOT a NY Super Week Event
    While NY Super Week's got its own burlesque event (see below), I couldn't pass up going to this sexy comic-themed strip tease event! I've seen a few of these ladies in action before, and it's only right, as a fan, to show my support. Of course I'll be rocking a little something special to the event (because watching the show is only half the fun!)
Here are the few other New York Super Week Events I'm considering... 

Comics at Columbia: Past, Present, Future

Arcade breakfast at Dave & Busters

The Karate Kid 30th Anniversary Cast Conversation and Screening

Juan Epstein (Live Podcast) with Special Guest Funkmaster Flex

Sex Nerd Sandra Presents: Boning 101 Workshop

Costume and Game Play Party at Dave & Buster’s

RAWR! Burlesque in conjunction with New York Super Week Presents: Comic Con Vixens!
BATSU!

WEDNESDAY LINK UP// VOL. 17: Queens of KING, Jennah Bell & More

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

It's been so long..
that world seems cold... been so long... since I've tru--- Oh Stevie

Time for that weekly brain dump post I call
The Wednesday Link Up!

In all this chaos, I somehow managed to still find time to have a little fun. Last month, I got a chance to witness the magic of KING, this time as they headlined their own little East Coast tour. I even got a chance to speak to all three of the talented muses briefly after the show to congratulate them. (Check out this great DC write up about the trio & their LIVE recording of "Supernatural" for NPR in New Orleans! I will never tire, EVER!)


Opening for the queens of KING was the soulful Jennah Bell. I could go on and on about how amazing she was, but I'd rather let you be the judge.

*(Best version I could find, unless you've got Spotify)*

Since I'm running on a tight schedule this week (I told you it's chaos!), I'm going to give ya'll some good ol' bite-size link ups ~ enjoy! 


Signing off and sending much love - Happy Wednesday!~

Despite the hiccups - forgetting my Batman tee at home, getting makeup in my eye and almost losing my fun money - last Wednesday was the best day of 2014 (hands DOWN!)
