Hello there DtoidLosAngelinos (and other people reading this, unfortunate enough to not live in Los Angeles). It's been awhile since we've last brought you news of parties/events. Truth is, you ought to join our Google Group
if you want to keep totally abreast of goings-on (or to simply partake in the email shenanigans that go on daily). But we still maintain this blog for bigger, more public events, and one is coming up.
The fourth annual Nerdcore Calendar launch event is set to occur on the 28th of this month, at Royal Clayton's English Pub
(click for directions). Fitting that it is near Halloween, because this year's theme is horror (those paying attention will know that 2007 was retro games, 2008 was superheroes/villains, and 2009 was science fiction). Several of us went as a group for last year's launch party, and if you need any convincing about it, refresh yourself with this lovely blog
by Mr. Chad Concelmo.
Unfortunately, the press release we received made no mention of free drinks for this one as there were in previous years. It is unclear whether this means that there will be no open bar, or if they simply aren't advertising this so people don't just come for the booze. Still, there will be models there for calendar signing, music provided by DJ R-Rated
, and ghosts
If you want one of the calendars, you can buy one from http://www.totallynerdcore.com
, and either have it shipped to you, or if you're in the area, pick it up at the launch party.
