Nerd News: Doctorsaurs, James Bond, Star Trek awesomeness and more

Vol. 3, Issue 21

Sorry for the lateness of the issue, friends. I went out last night instead of doing my blogly duties and then ran into some glitches.

First up for you Austinites (or anyone who might be interested in traveling here), some awesome news: Most of the main cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation will be attending Austin Comic Con in October(!!!). (Thanks, Emily!)

In TV news this week:

How adorably dapper are these Doctor Who dinosaurs?

I think I might like this poster better than the Mondo one we didn't get.

SCIENCE! And tech news:

Need to get some of this geeky paper for every gift wrapping event in the future.

This is a statement on the inherent nature of alcohol, isn't it.

From TGG:

I also found an interesting bit of news:

With all of this Marvel love going on, I must remember to throw a bone to DC every now and again. And with posters like these, it's easy!

And finally, this stunningly edited fan video (albeit with bootlegged footage, I think?) will give your day a sense of greatness. (Thanks, Amanda!)

  1. Good issue, Chief. And thanks for giving Emily's news item a special place of honor at the very top of the post. Now I'll never hear the end of it.

  4. Argh, too much to comment on again!

    First - Highlander? Really? Not keen on that idea - also, what is Highlander with that queen song?! Also Rufio? Really? I think I'll just rewatch Hook (again)

    I am however stupidly excited about Total Recall, I think it looks great and I'm ready to like Colin again (I loved him in Minority Report... why did he have to be in Daredevil?!)

    I geeked out a little about the star trek cast being at a Comic Con lol, I used to love that show. Patrick Stewart did a speech at my graduation (on screen, he couldn't be there on our day, boo) and it was the best part of my degree haha.

    I can not wait for Borderlands 2! Also that puzzle game looks intersting too, kind of Portally...

    Talking of Portal - have you seen this?!

    1. Have you seen Fright Night? Colin is excellent in that movie, and it's a hoot all-around.

      I'm super excited at the possibility of seeing all of them in one place. I grew up on TNG ... it was a huge influence on my little nerdy self (as proven by my tattoo).

      And yes, that Portal video is awesome! :)

    2. Yeah i loved fright night too, he earned back a bit of love with that.

      I grew up on it too and deep space nine :)
