Every day, the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Every Wednesday and Saturday (mid week/end of week) we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

WSC-ATL-2

How quickly the year goes by. October is back and so is Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta Ga, this weekend, the 17th through the 19th. This marks the second year for Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta and it looks to be a big one. Walker Stalker has expanded since then with conventions in Boston, New York, San Fransisco, Dallas, Orlando, Chicago, and of course, Atlanta. There’s an incredible list of guests this year that includes just about every major Walking Dead character with only a few exceptions that had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts. We’ll be covering the convention the entire weekend and bringing it to you here. (more…)

NYCC Hammers Down on Fans with Busy Hands

After some conscientious female nerds made it an issue at San Diego Comic Con, the organizers of New York Comic Con seem to have taken the hint and ran with it in preparing for this weekend’s con in the Javits Center in New York City. The mantra, “Cosplay is Not Consent,” is omnipresent at the show, and NYCC has taken other steps to make sure that everyone has a safe and happy con free of harassment and inappropriate action on the part of people who don’t realize, you know, that “Cosplay is Not Consent.” In other NYCC news their “don’t be an idiot” and “no weapons” policies seems to be causing great confusion with fans whose hours of hard work on that important prop detail seems to be taken out with the trash.

Although the second season of Heroes of Cosplay redeemed the majority of what was so wrong with the first season, all that artificially amped up drama and confrontation. In fact you’ll see a lot of those same Heroes of Cosplay in Cosplay Boom. The difference? This time you see the side that Heroes of Cosplay basically ignored in that first season, their love of cosplay, what it means to them and the cosplay community. (more…)
