  • Welcome to Night Vale Live Show Experience

    A few days ago I found myself among the lucky fans of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast, who were presented with an opportunity to go to one of their live shows in Tempe, Arizona. Ah, the joy of finally being able to see many favorite cast members in person, the chance to hear a […]


  • Quinni-Con 2014: Who can say no to a FREE convention?

    As someone who enjoys going to conventions – particularly ones with smaller and therefore more intimate atmospheres – I’m always on the lookout for upcoming events. Quinni-Con caught my eye not only because it takes place in my home state of Connecticut (and on a beautiful college campus, at that), but because it’s also a […]


  • Comic Con San Diego Badge FAQ

    So you want to go to the world famous San Diego Comic Con this summer and you’re a little confused about where to to begin? When do badges go on sale, you ask?  What happens if you don’t get a badge or don’t get the type of badge that you want? What are some good […]


  • Comic Con Badges Just Got Harder to Get

    San Diego Comic Con International is often cited as the “biggest convention of it’s kind in the world.”  What started out as a small comic book convention in San Diego with a few hundred attendees has ballooned up into an event that attracts 130,000+ attendees every year.  It also attracts some of the biggest names […]


  • Walker Stalker Con 2013: Panel Highlights

    The panel schedule at Walker Stalker Con was packed, and I made time to attend as many as possible. Although the convention had great attendance, I loved that there wasn’t really a need to line up hours beforehand in order to get a seat – I was often able to walk right in and grab […]


  • Andrew Lincoln Press Roundtable

    I was presented with an amazing opportunity as a member of the press for Walker Stalker Con this past weekend – the chance to participate in a roundtable with Andrew Lincoln, who is of course the star of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Just eight members of the press were at this particular interview, and each […]


  • Walker Stalker Con: A different kind of convention

    Last night I had the incredible good fortune of being able to interview Eric and James of The Walker Stalkers podcast – and as they are also the founders of Walker Stalker Con, which I will be attending next month, it was awesome to pick their brains and get the scoop on what is sure […]


  • AWA: My First Anime Convention

    Anime Weekend Atlanta follows on Dragon Con’s heels every year (taking place just a few weeks later and taking place just a few miles away) but it is, of course, a completely different convention. And though I’ve watched some anime, the idea of going to a full-on anime convention never really occurred to me. But […]


  • Supernatural Dallas Con: Days 2 and 3

    Richard Speight Jr and Matt Cohen Day two of DallasCon began not with an introduction to his own duo panel from Richard Speight Jr, but Richard and Matt Cohen hopping into the audience and prowling the center aisle regularly, their hilarious act ready from the start. If you’re hoping to answers about the Trickster, about […]


  • Supernatural DallasCon: Day 1

    Supernatural’s convention in Dallas is famous for “bringing the boys home” to Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki’s home state of Texas.
