Misha Collins, widely known for his role as Castiel on CW’s Supernatural, is back to the activist grind with a new fundraising venture. This time, it’s a gofundme page that seeks to raise enough money to purchase the private data of the Congress members who have voted to sell our personal data to the highest bidders. Of course, it’s not exactly as simple as selecting which guy’s browsing history you want to see and paying a fee to get a glimpse at it, as many, many others have pointed out, but it’s a gesture nonetheless designed to keep people–namely, the legions of fans invested in the Misha Collins persona–informed, interested, and engaged. Far more law-savvy folk than I have breached the tangled mess of lies and truths concerning the Obama-era law that was recently overturned, and I suggest doing your own research and making sure you know everything you possibly want to know in order to make any decisions regarding donating to campaigns like these. Though unlikely to yield results that many people are hoping, this campaign does serve to keep people active and will make for a hefty donation. Donate. Don’t donate. I can only weigh in on one aspect, and it’s that Misha Collins does good with every action he takes.
Thanks, Congress, for voting to put all of our private data up for sale! We can’t wait to buy yours. https://t.co/t8pq3p470f

Wondercon has come to mark an exciting time for DC animated movie fans, especially if your superhero team-up of choice is the Teen Titans. 2016’s Wondercon event saw the world premiere of the first time the Teen Titans would appear in the DC animated movie verse in “Justice League vs. Teen Titans” and now 2017 welcomes the 2nd. Comic fans can flock to the Anaheim Convention Center’s Arena to be a part of the first screening of “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”, the second Teen Titans centric movie, on April 1st, 2017. Based loosely on a popular storyline from 1984 of the same name, the Judas Contract arc penned by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, the new sequel brings back the crew from the first movie and explores both expansion of that team and introduces some of the most famous big bads the Titans face.
“Teen Titans: The Judas Contract finds the Teen Titans—Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin, and the just-returned Nightwing—working as a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil. But their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows—both waiting to pounce. ”
“What are your superpowers again?

Night in the Woods invites players in with adorably stylish anthropomorphic animal characters, engaging yet simple design, an absolutely killer soundtrack, and the promise of something spooky lurking just beyond the treeline. It doesn’t, however, advertise the emotional rollercoaster you are strapping into as soon as you boot up a new game. Night in the Woods packs an emotional punch, one that is not easily side-stepped or ignored. It is at times darkly hilarious, endearingly sweet, and achingly too real. This is one of those games that leave you utterly destroyed in the best way possible, rifling through problems both small and so staggeringly huge with ease and precision. Humor and melancholy weave together seamlessly to form the backbone of this story’s tone, building steadily in a way that refuses to slip mindlessly by. It’s less of a game to just play and more an experience that demands your full attention.

The fantastic pieces that lined the walls of the Perky Nerd certainly brought in lovers of pop culture and art alike, at least 5 of the pieces on the walls being sold within the first 10 minutes we were there (and in the opening minutes of the show at that!) The piece we really wanted was already purchased but we were able to purchase a print of it and are quite content! It was great to see a large turn out early as well as people ready to buy and support the talented artists who were part of the show. Here is just a sampling of what you’ll see when you stop in!Perky Nerd in Burbank, California. The Perky Nerd is located at 1606 W Magnolia Blvd.
Hey fellow nerds, if you’re anything like me you’ve watched the recently dropped Alien: Covenant trailer and all its accompanying reaction videos, shared it with your beloved wife in hopes she’s be just as excited as you are, and immediately regret said decision as the occasional getting lucky in the shower becomes a distant memory. I digress… Let’s talk Alien, all things Alien, and why you should maybe give Prometheus another shot! Find out why after the jump!
