At a Loss: This year was Nerdapalooza’s last due to poor attendance

Maybe it was due to moving Orlando’s wiliest nerdfest to the Orange County Convention Center. Maybe it was because of the economy, which is still shit.

Fall music preview: Cut the shit, summer, let’s talk fall shows

A friend of mine once said that our tastes in music are as arbitrary as our favorite flavors of ice cream. Yes, completely arbitrary and frequently changing, and I guess if that’s true, that makes musicians the emperors of ice cream. That’s a fine allusion for summer, but if you’re as over sweating this...

Nerdy Show expands their empire

When the Nerdy Show announced they were airing a special podcast, “State of the Empire,” to on-goingly discuss The Joss Whedon Decision and expansion of the Star Wars franchise, I was pretty tickled by their chosen tagline for the podcast, “Looking for love in Alderaan places.” These guys are clever, passionate, knowledgeable, invested –...

Photos: Nerdapalooza 2012

Since it’s inception on the Rhyme Torrents forum in 2007 I have been a follower of Nerdapalooza. In fact its east coast start at a tiny café in Gainesville is what made me think moving to “Mousetown” that year might not be so bad after all. From those modest beginnings the music/nerd culture festival...

Why a pledge for S.K.I.P. can save the world.

Did I get hyperbole on your shirt? Sorry bout that. But hear me out, I’ve got a point and it’s gonna get ugly. Back in April, I received an email from the manager/publicist/something or other of locally based, nationally hungry power-poppers Plain Jane Automobile. This company had Big Plans for PJA and the first...
