Fandom Friday

Fandom Friday #004

In the immortal words of Paul Bettany’s Chaucer (A Knight’s Tale) “without further gilding the lily, and with no more ado,” here are my nerdy faves of the week:

1)  Justice League “Unite the League” Trailers

Screaming.

Just screaming.

Both internally and externally.

Warner Bros. released “Unite the League” teasers for Batman, the Flash, and Aquaman, and Wonder Woman,  with Cyborg, and, presumably, Superman to drop today in advance of the first Justice League trailer tomorrow.

That sound you hear is me purchasing my ticket on the hype train.

2)  Julie Andrews Joins Twitter

The (arguably) First Lady of Disney, her majesty Queen Clarisse Renaldi of Genovia, Maria, and Mary Poppins herself (no disrespect to Emily Blunt, who’s taken up the umbrella for the sequel), has joined twitter.

While it could be a marketing strategy for her Netflix series, Julie’s Greenroom (sort of like Reading Rainbow, for the arts, but with puppets), I’m so terribly pleased that I don’t care.

I’ve never hit the follow button faster.

3)  NSF Con (Saturday, March 25, 2017)

Are you an adult who loves the nerdier things in life?  Have you ever dreamed of attending a comic convention that was for adults only?

Well, tomorrow is your lucky day!

The Grey Eagle Casino in Calgary, AB is hosting Not Safe for Con, an adult oriented convention that is 18+ only.

Full disclosure: The wonderful folks of the Nerdgasm Collective, who I adore, and Alberta burlesque powerhouse, Arabella Allure, have organized some fine nerdlesque entertainment for the evening and my buddy, Roberto, of RAD Pencils has a booth.

So buy a ticket, come on down, and enjoy all the things you love without having to worry about tripping over wee nerdlings.

4)  CUFF 2017 Lineup

The Calgary Underground Film Festival (April 17-23, 2017) has announced their lineup/schedule for this year’s fest.

I had such a blast last year at the screening of Everybody Wants Some!.  I’m stoked for more film festy goodness.  (Do I already have my tickets for the 15th Anniversary Screening of FUBAR and the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal and Cartoon Party?  Yes, yes I do.)

5)  The Flash “Duet”

I haven’t been a loyal watcher of the Flash for a long time (for reasons that would require a separate, lengthy post), but I’m so excited to watch this episode.  I don’t really care what the current season’s storyline is; I just want to watch Grant Gustin, Darren Criss, Melissa Benoist, Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, Carlos Valdes, John Barrowman, and Jeremy Jordan entertain me with singing and dancing in period costume.  (Also, Chris Wood has a lovely voice… why was he left out of all the hoopla?)
