Batman is a name that everyone knows. He brings joy to the hearts of little children who believe he is one of the coolest heroes around and reminds adults that even a person without powers can make a difference in the lives of others. His impact goes beyond the pages of comic books and action scenes of the movies. Sure, you can feel like Batman as you smash buttons on your game controller but that only lasts for as long as you keep playing. If you allow Batman to be more than just a character in your life and allow him to inspire your actions, you will start to feel like you are the hero in your own adventure.

About a month ago, we introduced you to the amazing, edible, and nerdy creations of Nerdache Cakes. We decided we didn’t want to stop at enviable images, so we got in touch with the immensely talented Ant Roman, the brain behind the oven, to find out just what Nerdache Cakes is all about. The answers we got were just too fun to cut down, so read on to see the entire interview, unedited.
Steampunk. We’ve all heard of it, or at least, most of us have. It’s found its way into countless areas of recent popular culture, from books, to television shows, and especially web series. Most people approach it from the campy, comedy, or curious angle, seeing it as something fun and quirky (many modern Steampunk authors not withstanding), but one developing web series is looking to change all that. The World of Steam, which recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their first season, is looking to bring the internet a new kind of Steampunk series: one which will delve deep into the Steampunk universe, one story at a time.
If you’re from Philadelphia and a geek, you’ve probably heard of Eric Smith. If you haven’t, you don’t belong in Philadelphia, and you need to leave the city NOW. I’m kidding. But take this opportunity to learn more about this geek. He is one of the head honchos over at the awesome blog, Geekadelphia and the Philadelphia Geek Awards. He also works at Quirk, blogs for Geekosystem, writes, and teaches writing and literature at a few colleges. Basically, he’s got the energy of the Flash. Or has Hermione’s time turner… Either way, he is awesome and has written a book for the geeks out there that need a little help with finding romance. Or as Eric likes to call it, finding Player 2.
Well, Horror and Horror-Comedy Geeks, I have a treat for you!I recently got the chance to catch up with Troma and Return to Nuke ‘Em High actor, Clay von Carlowitz about Troma, Lloyd Kaufman, Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 2 and New York City Horror Film Festival.
Happy Belated Halloween my little Ghouls and Goblins! It truly is never too late for a little treat…right?
How much do you love Doctor Who? Is it so much that you would create a fan film festival for it? Because that’s what our Geek of the Week, Kyle J. Williamson, did. Yes, just waving around your prized sonic screwdriver just doesn’t cut it. Sorry, Whovians. But you’ll be happy to know that Kyle Williamson is a genuinely nice guy that wants to share his love of Doctor Who with other geeks.
Back in August, the ladies here at Geeky ErrAU had the immense pleasure of attending the 1st Annual Geekie Awards out in Los Angeles. While we were attempting to figure out how to get inside, we made friends with the folks behind us in line. They were Ken Pisani and his wife, and Ken was a fellow nominee. Turns out he’d written COLONUS, one of the graphic novels up for the award for “Best Comic Book/Graphic Novel”. We were friendly, but less than optimistic about his chances (he was up against some pretty serious talent). Turns out, we were idiots. He won, and it’s opened up a grand new chapter for the book.
What if you could stay young and beautiful forever? All it takes is a little virgin sacrifice. In this day of endless creams, concealers, botox, and surgery, it seems like there is almost no limit to the lengths people will go to protect their vanity. Back in 16th century Hungary, one noblewoman was accused of taking her obsession with youth and beauty to the extreme. Though no one has ever confirmed the number of victims, the woman who would become known in history as the “Blood Countess” was said to have slain young women, drained their blood, and bathed in it. Her name was Elizabeth Bathory, and in a new film, Chastity Bites, she is very much alive.
