Anime Weekend Atlanta Day 1 250 (Copy) (Copy)

Anime Weekend Atlanta had its 20th anniversary last weekend with a weekend long celebration of everything Anime. There were panels, terrific cosplay, great anime voice acting and musical guests (There was practically a concert going on somewhere in the convention just about all the time), a huge Dealers Room with an equally large Artists Alley, special event sites like the Imperial Maid Cafe, numerous video rooms with Anime streaming, and an impressive, free to read, Manga Library that was open 24/7 during the convention. It was a fun weekend and you can check out the highlights of the convention after the jump! (more…)

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.

Cosplay and More From The Floor of the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo

nb-TITLE-SaskExpo2014

This past weekend the inaugural Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo hit the titular Canadian city. Saskatoon? Yes, you know, the city that was mentioned in a Mystery Science Theater 3000 song that one time. It’s the birth place of  both Alpha Flight‘s Puck and WWE‘s Rowdy Roddy Piper. The grain (Quadrotriticale) that the tribbles ate in the classic Star Trek episode came from there… Well now that we’ve proven the city has its share of nerd cred, how did the first year of this event go?

Two words: Freakin’ amazing. A few quick thoughts on the weekend and a metric tonne of cosplay follow. (more…)

Race Through History with These ‘BACK TO THE FUTURE II’ Shoes!

Ever since Michael J. Fox made fools of us all and claimed in an ABC network special coinciding with the release of Back to the Future II that scientists were working on developing an actual hoverboard as seen in the film, it’s been difficult for me to trust anyone. However, the folks behind the film are looking to rectify Fox’s lies (okay, that might be a bit harsh) and make my 10-year-old heart sing, along with everyone else with a fondness for the time-hopping trilogy of movies. They’re still rolling out a feet-related product, just not one that flies. (more…)
