    Geek & Sundry starts Magic The Gathering show

    Many people don’t know this, but I’m a huge Magic the Gathering fan. I’m not as good as my husband at it, but I love playing. There is so much to love about MTG. The artwork, the strategy and of course the collecting. Now add Day[9] to the mix. That’s right, Day[9] is doing SPELLSLINGERS, a new Magic The Gathering based show on the Geek & Sundry network. Let hilarity ensue. A new geek icon will take on Sean with the hope of emerging victorious in an all-or-nothing match. Definitely tune in! Follow

    Geek A Bye Baby celebrates the geeky family

    First there is WhenGeeksWed for assistance in thinking about ideas to celebrate geeky weddings, but what about that next step? Having a baby is an amazing time in your life. While there are some trying moments, it should be fun too. Geek-A-Bye-Baby gives us geeky families a way to celebrate our geeky fandoms. Everything from Star Wars to Dr. Who. The site started when Beth began to create fun things for her geeky baby. They started with a few items and today they have over 90 items in the store. The items range from burp clothes to bedding and costumes (you know you have to take monthly baby pictures anyway). But they also have products for nursing moms (lactation cookies) and custom made ring slings/mobys. I love this site so much because it shows that you don’t have to change who you are when you become a mom. You can

    The Novo Geek store opens for business

    Being a geek as you get older has it’s benefits. One of those is having the disposable income to spend on things that make you happy. The other is being able to celebrate your geeky hobbies in public ways at work. A new company has launched to help provide you with a variety of geeky products. The Novo Geek just opened online this week. The store already has items for Star Trek and Battlestar Galatica fans. Even Dexter fans can purchase a “thumb” drive inspired by Cherry’s “donation” to the infamous ice block at the hands of the Ice Truck Killer. “We’re geeks, and we’re proud of it – and our mission is to make every day better for all geek-kind,” said Joe Salcedo, founder and CEO of Anovos Productions LLC, whose staggeringly detailed and precise Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica replica uniforms have become enormously popular with fans around

    Meeting Felicia Day

    Emerald City Comicon came fast for me and I did not have a chance to officially request some time with Felicia Day in order to interview her.  Believe me, I was a very sad panda about this.  So, when I decided to get Felicia Day and Amy Sakuda’s autographs, I tried to make that moment count. Before I joined the line, I had just experienced the awesomeness that is meeting Wil Wheaton.  He was very nice, down to earth considering he is a lord of geekdom, and above all sweet.  We had a brief conversation and he signed a headshot for me.  In my Wil Wheaton induced haze, I stumbled onto Felicia and Amy’s line.  Before I realized, the line was huge! I looked at Wil’s and it was just as long.  I stood there waiting, looking at my phone as I overheard what the people in line were saying.

    Interview with Awkward Embraces Creator, Jessica Mills

    Recently, someone directed me to a web series called “Awkward Embraces”.  The show, created by Jessica Mills, wrapped up it’s first season a few months ago.  You can watch the full 10 episode first season at the website, Awkward Embraces.  The second season of the show is set to premiere February 18th.  The show follows the dating experiences of a geek, Jessica, and her friends Candis and Lyndsey. I was introduced to the show not too long ago myself and was pretty excited to be able to ask Jessica a few questions about the show, how much of her is in her character and her thoughts about being a nerd. Cherith: To start, I have to admit that I’m curious about the term ‘Nerd’ in general.  I have the Nerd vs. Geek discussion with my friends all the time, and I’m always curious when people brand themselves as one or

    Meet Geek Chic Cosmetics and Win!

    Recently I had the honor of interviewing Deb from Geek Chic Cosmetics. I love what her and her team are trying to do and thought that GamingAngels readers should hear their story and support them! I mean who doesn’t love geek themed makeup?! GA: Who makes up Geek Chic Cosmetics? Me (Deb!) and my best friend, Chantel. We both do color creation, but I also do label designing, PR, and finances. Chantel also does some graphic designing, comes up with most of the names for our products, and does a lot stuff that involves words… things I don’t have patience for! We also have a lot of behind the scenes help from Chantel’s boyfriend, Phil. GA: Why/what made you start the company? Both of us are unemployed and are tired of working for the man, so we decided that we’d rather do something that’s all our own. We both love

    Geek as the New Chic

    Some kids grow up with dads that teach them how to play baseball or basketball. Other kids grow up with dads that teach them how to shoot cans in the backyard. Still others grow up with dads who show them how to fix up muscle cars in their garage. But these dads aren’t my Dad. My Dad didn’t teach me how to change my oil or how to throw a three pointer from the top of the crease (well, I learned how to do the latter with a lot of time and energy on the part of my sixth grade basketball coach). I was a warrior princess, not a pampered brat. Instead, he opted to teach me the right way to build a character in Dungeons and Dragons (D&D); the right way to corner a Supra Class car in Gran Turismo for the PlayStation 2; and the importance of tactical
