Helloh, fellow nerdlings!

Aary here, ready to update you on the awesome events that were our 2013 celebration extravaganza. As you all well know, Tingle and I have a regular set of con friends that we hang with at our various gatherings. Well, seeing as we had not seen anyone since Sugoicon back in November, we planned to get everyone we possibly could to go to a show that we heard was going down in Cincinnati, OH. We all planned to go to the show, rage, dance, then go back to our hotel room and celebrate as the ConSluts always do.

Now, this is where I say I am very blessed to have some of the bestest friends in the world. I had the unfortunate luck of having to work at the restaurant until about 10:15pm on New Years Eve. Kong, Tingle, and another friend (who I have yet to assign a nickname to refer to in this blog) came to the restaurant and kept me company so that I would not have to drive to Covington all by my lonesome. I CANNOT express the gratitude I have for my friends that postponed their festivities for my sake. I am very humbled, and value their friendships at an incredibly high level.

We finally made it to the show around 11:30pm, after a mad dash back to my house for Tingle and I to get dressed and ready. After much stress, expletives, and confusion trying to gather everyone together, we finally arrived all in one piece and met up with everyone else at the the show. And it. Was. AWESOME. The countdown was had, celebrations all around, and then the headliner came on stage and we rocked out until the venue told us to leave. It was beautiful.

Myself, Tingle, and various ConSluts at the show! It was sick!

The show itself had four different sets. A personal friend of mine and Tingle’s, Infected Angel, opened the show (IF YOU ARE READING THIS I’M STILL MAD I MISSED YOUR SET!!!!), and you can find his SoundCloud here, I highly recommend his stuff. Krowd Khemistry followed him, along with Zoogma, and then finally, the headliner Le Castle Vania. I can’t speak for the others, because I missed them, but Le Castle Vania rocked. I highly suggest checking him out as well.

After the show, our entire crew gathered in the hotel for music, drinks, and other merry making. It was a good time had by all, and I cannot wait to repeat it all at Ohayocon here in two weeks!

2012 in review

Happy New Year, everybody! I’m so sorry Tingle and I have not been more active these last couple months. She just picked up a new job, and after finals I have been working my butt off back at home trying to make some money. I hope your Christmases were absolutely wonderful! As for me, mine were filled with rave clothes, beads, and such other girly nonsense ;). This blog has been such an exciting adventure, and I have learned so much since March. After the new year, we have Ohayocon coming up, and I assure you we will have much to talk about regarding that! Not to mention TONS of new song obsessions, game reviews, and more! Tonight Tingle and I are ringing in the New Year right at a rave right here on our home turf! It’s gonna be sick!

My new years resolution: To give you a new blog, every week, like I promised when we first made this! We’ll see how that goes ūüėČ

Much love from the Nerd Girls, and if you’re curious about how our blog has done this past year, WordPress gave us quite a spiffy review to share with you:

“The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

Click here to see the complete report.”

I can’t wait to see how hard Nintendo slaps this guy. Btw guys – finals are OVER for the semester – be prepared for lotsa updates!

My Nintendo News

zelda_game_windowsA blatant clone of Nintendo‚Äôs The Legend of Zelda is available to download from Microsoft‚Äôs Windows 8 Marketplace. The clone is shamelessly called ‚ÄúZelda Game‚ÄĚ and is made by Joeri Kerkhof, who is charging consumers $1.49 to download it.

Sugoicon 2012

Okay, first of all Sugoicon was AMAZING! I loved seeing all of my friends and getting to know new ones! ¬†Can’t wait to see you all at Ohayocon 2013 XD

As Aary mentioned before, we went up a day early and that was by far the most exciting part of my weekend =) Our friend DJ z3r0 introduced us to Greg Ayres (amazing voice actor and DJ, click here for a list of his works), and the four of us, two kick ass DJ’s and two wonderful kandi kids, spent the entire night talking music, kandi, and other nerdisms. ¬†Needless to say, these nerdgirls were in heaven! By the end of the night, I had tons of new music, a great new friend, and a really REALLY exciting opportunity. Since I haven’t¬†received¬†any conformation yet, I won’t say too much, but I PROMISE to let all of our wonderful readers know when I do, and believe me, its exciting! Ahh! I’m getting all hyped up just thinking about it! ¬†=D

Hokay. So. Friday basically consisted of me running around an giving TONS of hugs! I didn’t get my badge until about 10 Friday night, so I stayed mostly in the room and the common con areas. ¬†And one point, my friend Kong and I decided we wanted to cuddle, about 5 minutes into the cuddling I informed Kong that I was about to fall asleep. His response was “we could always play magic” and INSTANTLY, I MEAN I-N-S-T-A-N-T-L-Y ¬†we were both up and digging through our bags for our cards. It was by far the most nerdy moment of my entire life.¬†From cuddles to searching for cards and dice, in quite literally a split second, simply at the mention of Magic: The Gathering…not sure if proud…or really, really ashamed. ¬†Aside from nerding out over Magic,¬†Friday was pretty uneventful and full of random people I met and then forgot about the next day! ¬†And as always, I was up majority of the time, but about 6 am I decided I would take a nap, especially since I was to work in the Dealer’s room all day Saturday!

Saturday. UGH! Saturday! 9:30 a.m. rolls around and I report for duty at The Dragon’s Hoard booth in full Applejack cosplay. ¬†Cheap cowboy boots + standing on your feet all day + little sleep + recovering from a night of partying – food = a TERRIBLE day of work. ¬†It was pure torture. ¬†My only relief was the wonderful¬†Captain¬†Shameless. ¬†I love him dearly for understanding my misery and making it¬†bearable! Majority of my Saturday was spent in the booth, prancing around in heels, lacing girls into corsets and just the general hullabaloo of working in a vendor’s booth. ¬†Met and took pictures with some pony friends and¬†received¬†several compliments on my¬†portrayal¬†of Applejack ūüôā

After my shift FINALLY ended, I retreated back to my room for a couple of hours where I sat in bed and made kandi and prepared myself for the rave!  And now to the rave.  The rave was grand, once it finally got started and until the hotel shut it down an hour early.  

*The following is a plea to all convention and hotel staff, as well as attendees. Please read carefully.*

Really people?! WTF? The rave is the biggest event I’ve seen at every con I’ve attended. Time, energy, stress and love goes into making each rave a special experience for the con attendees! The event coordinator listens to multiple auditions/mixes/sets/what-have-you and then chooses a select few who he/she thinks will create the best experience for the con-goers. They plan, organize, budget…they do EVERYTHING to make sure the rave is a success. The individual DJ’s play sets specifically for the crowd of people they are playing for. ¬†No good DJ will play the same set at an anime con that they would at a video game con or nightclub or a brony con. When they are told that they will be able to perform at a¬†certain¬†place, they plan a specialized group of songs that will be catered to the audience the night of the show. ¬†Why on earth can’t people respect that??? ¬†Not allowing the rave to start on time and/or cutting it short is telling these people ¬†you don’t care about any of the hard work they put into YOUR event!

Now, with my rant out of the way, the Sugoicon 2012 rave was outstanding! Aary and I went HAM! We were both aching within an hour after the rave was shut down, and the remainder of our weekend was spent saying goodbye and showing friends exactly how much we care for each other.

All in all Sugoicon 2012 was a great experience. ¬†I saw a different side of the con life and I have a new-found¬†appreciation¬†for all the hard work and effort required to make a convention successful. ¬†Was your Sugoicon 2012 in fact…sugoi? Mine sure as hell was ‚̧

*ps…JASON JASON I LOVE JASON!

Happy Turkey Day!

I am thankful to have every single one of you readers in our little blog’s life! We wouldn’t still be here without you. May you eat, be merry, sleep, then eat some more – and if you simply MUST go shopping tomorrow… don’t get trampled by the mobs of people trying to save a buck on shoes who, just 6 hours before, were being thankful for all that they had.

My Turkey Day gift to you: Turkeys love dubstep too!
