The geek gods shined upon me this week when Andrew Duvall of Fangasm fame, took the time out of his schedule to talk to me about his new web series, The Apartment. Andrew is one of my favorite interns on Fangasm because of his geek pride and humorous outlook on life. He might be mad that he’s not captain of the Enterprise, but I am pretty positive we will be seeing his star rise and everyone will be saluting him.

What do the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Scooby Doo, and James Bond all have in common? Is it their catchphrases? They’re dashing good looks? No. It’s their cars.
After seeing Miss Wendybird’s Paperman cosplay shoot back in the Spring, I have been in awe of her work. She’s done every character from The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel to BioShock Infinite‘s Elizabeth. So I was delighted to get the chance to talk to her about her love of cosplay.
Well it is Tuesday and you know what that means…it is TUMBLING TUESDAY here at AGtM!This week we mix illustration with pop culture as we take a look at the Tumblr account Twitter: The Comic!
One giant part of fandom, as many will tell you, is the fan art. Whether it’s doodling in your notebooks at school, or creating masterpieces in your studio, the act of expressing your love of something through illustration has captivated geeks since the dawn of fandom.
Do you remember being a kid and picking up a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ book at the library (or bookstore if you were one of those kids)? That sense of power you felt when you could decide what happened to these characters you were reading about, instead of being forced to follow the same banal cause/effect narrative of so many lesser stories, only to have it ripped away when you excitedly turned to page 83 and discovered that your heroes could not, in fact, make that jump, and they had fallen down a large chasm (likely filled with an unspeakable horror). If you miss that feeling, but wish maybe it involved more comedy, and less traumatizing death, then maybe you’d like to check out this week’s Web Series Wednesday feature: The Wrong Guys for the Job.
Tricia and Kait discuss the second episode of Once Upon a Time’s fourth season. Did they warm up to the new Frozen storyline yet?
You’ve no doubt heard the pop-cultured laden raps of Adam WarRock if you’ve ever been anywhere on the internet. If you haven’t, I highly suggest you go to his page now (www.AdamWarRock.com) and let some of his music play, while you read this interview. And then continue to listen to it. Trust me, you’ll love it. I look forward to every new song he puts out. The man is extremely talented and the cherry on top is that he left the lawyer world to pursue his passion, which I find to be truly inspiring. No offense to any practicing lawyers reading this!
