Wed Pic: Vampires Do Not Sparkle!

A coworker attended a local sci-fi con last weekend and brought back this nifty pin for me:

Vampires do not sparkle!

I don't know what it's about, but I think I want one

Original art by Greg Aronowitz

Yes, that's Wil Wheaton with Felicia Day. My view of Wesley Crusher has always been more brotherly than ohh la la, and I think that's why I'm having some trouble wrapping my head around this picture (yes, I realize he's supposed to be Fawkes here, not Wesley, but it doesn't seem to make a difference to my subconscious self). Cover his head and it would be fine - I'd probably buy that book. :) (It's a little like getting on Facebook and coming across a picture of someone you used to babysit when they were a toddler, except now they're all grown up and chugging a beer. You "knew" they grew up but you didn't know (ya know?). It takes some mental adjustment.)

Apparently, the romance cover image plays a part in Season 4 Episode 3 of The Guild, but the episode won't be out until next week, so I have to wait with everyone else who wasn't at Comic-Con to see what this is all about. [pout, pout, pout]

Meanwhile, The Guild has released the music video they premiered at Comic-Con:

<a href="" target="_new" title="Season 4 - Music Video - "Game On"">Video: Season 4 - Music Video - "Game On"</a>

I need to get over the Wesley thing by the time the poster comes out because, really, that'd just be geektastic to have on my wall. Maybe I should go watch more of Evil Wil Wheaton on Big Bang Theory to scrub some of Wesley out of my head (after all, EWW is kind of hawt)

Friday Fun: Comic-Con 2010!

Comic-Con 13
Trolley signs in Klingon!
Comic-Con is going on right now in San Diego, and that means the world is full of shiny! In other words, no matter what else I'm doing, I'm mentally AFP (Away From Planet).

Here's a cute video from the LA Times with some of the characters wandering the halls of the San Diego Convention Center:

Best Old Spice Spoof. Ever.

I work in a library, so maybe I'm biased, but I think this is pretty darn awesome:

"I'm on a cart." Love it.

Follow-up: AT-AT Day Afternoon

Back in June, I posted AT-AT Day Afternoon. Patrick Boivin has now posted a making-of video. It's pretty cool, even though my first thought was "Gasp! He took it apart?!?"

California Dorks [awesome geeky Katy Perry spoof]

This is so cute!

(Yes, this seems to be turning into a link/video blog, but I swear some longer posts are coming - I just seem to be having a very "Oooh, shiny!", year)

New lows of geekiness...but I like it

I spent a good chunk of Monday keeping an eye on the streaming video of's studio revamp as they set up a new lighting grid. Riveting, I know. Yes, I'm kind of pathetic. You can now watch the entire process in the much faster time-lapse version.

If you're not familiar with TWiT (named for This Week in Tech, their original show), they're kind of like CNN For Geeks, complete with live coverage of geeky events. I discovered TWiT just a few months ago, when I had a bout of nostalgia about TechTV and started poking around in Google. I found that TechTV didn't really die, it just changed forms! There was Leo Laporte! There was Patrick Norton! There was John C. Dvorak (gosh, I used to read his PC Magazine column in high school)! And the longer I watch, the more TechTV alums keep showing up. It's geek heaven.

TWiT has a lot of shows, but I think my favorite is This Week in Google - you should check it out.

Maybe I think I need to look into getting one of those things...what do you call them? know....oh yeah, a life!

Nah....I'm off to watch TWiT live!

John Cleese rants: Soccer vs Football

It's funny because I don't really care about either sport ;-) (I'm preparing for grumpy comments from Hubby, though)

Friday Fun: A Lovely Story About Me

A Lovely Story About Me:
One day, long, long ago, there lived a woman who
did not whine, nag or bitch.
(That would be me...)

But that was a long time ago and it was just that one day. 
The End

(Thanks to sis-in-law who e-mailed this to me)
