We here at Icygeek try to have a complete list of Louisville geek conventions. However, we had to make an executive decision and remove Fandom Fest from or listings. Without warning their event, which was to take place next weekend, was moved from the state fairgrounds to am event center area in Jefferson Mall. Also, Weird Al Yankovic has decided to cancel his appearance, and there are no refunds offered by the con.
Sorry for almost no updates this year. It has been hell here in our creche.
Anyway, we hope for most posts soon. In the meanwhile, we have updated our Convention page for the next Derby City and Lexington Comic Cons, and added a brand new event called Swaptember.
Quoth the penguin…evermore.
A little late, but better than never. Our take on the episode Strongarm’s Big Score, the 41st episode of Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
Yesterday (as I wrote this), I found out that the best place for me to actually play Magic: the Gathering, one Silver Creek Game Shop in Sellersburg, Indiana, had closed for good three hours earlier. I wished I had listened to my intuition and went to to earlier that day. Since then I have thought a lot about what might have gone wrong for it, what has gone wrong for other “geek shops” I’ve known, and lessons from all of them gathered so that another one might grace the Sunnyside of Louisville sometime. I plan to make this a more universal article, so if you are not from around the Kentuckiana area do not fear…you will find things germane to you as well.
It’s been awhile, but now another new season of Robots in Disguise has begun. If you read our previous reviews, you know we have been hesitant about this series. Will Season 3 be an improvement? Let’s hope so. Here is our review, with potshots, of the first episode of the season…History Lessons,
When one wants to recreate the medieval experience, many just think of the wardrobe or the weapons. But everyone needs to eat, so why not a menu fit for your typical D&D campaign, or maybe just a low-key middle ages faire. When we started Icygeek, we often highlighted articles on the net we found of interest to the geek crowd, and then posted our commentary to it. We have gotten away from it, but why not try a return, thanks to this nifty article…
