This weekend, Ryan and I are attending DragonCon 2013 in Atlanta, GA.
DragonCon is a con that is for the fans, by the fans, and people show up in droves in costume.
Where else can you see a guy dressed up as slave Leia, Wendy with the Burger King’s head on a pike, and the Disney Princesses imagined in both a Moulin Rouge and Jedi style? DragonCon of course!
We’ll be sharing lots of pictures and attending a few panels, but our focus is on chatting with fans, cosplayers, and special guests. We’d love to talk about how the way we experience and share the stories and characters we love is always evolving.
Reach out to @timarthur and @therab via Twitter this weekend and let’s talk!
We can’t wait to share our favorite DragonCon moments on the show!
This Friday, June 21 marks the release of the film adaptation of the 2006 Max Brooks novel World War Z.
I had the privilege of putting together a review for World War Z for my friend Kia, (@notthecar on Twitter) a local film critic for her website. Please check it out!
Ryan and I had the opportunity to see the Fan Sneak advanced showing of Star Trek: Into Darkness in IMAX 3D on Wednesday, May 15, 2013. The theater was packed, many fans were in costume, and the anticipation was high. We also took home an exclusive Enterprise IMAX poster that glows in the dark! (fitting) Listen in as we review the film on the spot immediately after we saw it. Ryan also interviewed a couple of the Trekkie cosplayers in a 6 second Vine. Live long and prosper!
