Both Mash & Dust Up!


In the wake of Nerd-Cane Adventures: FanExpo Toronto 2013, I had some odds and sodds kicking around the 'ole brain matter that I thought I would spew forth here so as to start with a bit of a clean slate.  With that in mind I have mashed together a TV Tuesday, Book Bwednesday & Thur-Video-Games Day!  I discuss:

Children s Hospital (Seasons 1-3),

"Time's Eye" by Arthur C. Clarke & Stephen Baxter (Book #1 of the Time Odyssey Trilogy), 

Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien,

Nerd-Cane Adventures: FanExpo Toronto 2013


A very super special episode of The Lackadaisical Librocubicularist Podcast that I am of course releasing in conjunction with:

or if you prefer the Facebook Version;

I can honestly not say enough (and I do a lot in the podcast!) how nice and kind all the people I came in contact with over the course of the weekend were! 

None of this nerdy "entertainment" would even exists if it were not for all of you! 

A Very Sincere Thank You!

This year marks a series of firsts including being my biggest yet in terms of the sheer amount I managed to fit in to this adventure as well as getting in some what I like to call "Nerdy Cross-Pollination"... Specifically with:

Cosplayers Canada  -> If you are at all serious about Cosplaying you probably have already seen their incredible work and if you have not I highly recommend you check out their Facebook & Flickr accounts to see what some professional photos look like!  Please do not compare his shots to closely to mine! 
Nerd-Cane will be making an appearance on the various Cosplayers Canada sites so look forward to that!

Further plugs go out to all the other kind people who I interacted with and gave me their cards!  Further intermingling of audiences abounds!
