ConGT logoMiddle Tennessee’s ONLY convention totally dedicated to Dr. Who is THIS weekend! Check out all of the details here, share all your images here, and get your fun on, Whovians!

Outright Geekery will have all the coverage from the convention floor, the cosplay contest, panels, guests, and more but why take our word for it? Tickets are still available online and at the show, but there WILL be a line at the door, so why wait!?

Check out ConGT on Twitter, Facebook, and their website!

We’re Going to ConGT and So Should You!

The ONLY Dr. Who exclusive Con in the Nashville/Middle-Tennessee area, it’s ConGT, it’s coming March 13-15, and Outright Geekery will be there covering the convention from top to bottom. The floor, the cosplay, the panel, the guests; we’ll be bringing you coverage of the event all weekend long. But, we’d much rather you be there in person to join in on the fun with us and the rest of the Whovians. And it’s never been easier!

ConGT logoConGT has extended early bird ticket pricing until the end of this week (February 14th) so head on over to the ConGT website for pricing, stay tuned to Outright Geekery for all the ConGT news, and get your daily fix of Dr. Who on ConGT’s official Facebook group page.

If all goes well with the Tardis, we’ll see you March 13-15.

Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Sentient Trees

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

Wizard of Oz Trees
These apple-tossing A-holes from the Wizard of Oz did not make the list

The word ‘sentient’ gets thrown around a whole lot, and while the definitions of the word may be a bit mixed up, for the sake of this list, sentience requires only one thing: A thing that isn’t a person acting like a person. In this case, walking, talking, moving of their own volition. You know, stuff that trees just don’t do. There were a ton of options to choose from, and even a bit of contention among the Outright Geeks about my picks. But it’s a slanted and biased list, and I don’t care what Treebeard likes to be called. So, without further ado, we got our photosynthesis on, hit a whole lot of geekdoms, and scream “She’s not a tree!!” in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Sentient Trees.

Advanced Review: Ivar, Timewalker #1

IVAR_001_009When Valiant first burst back into the comics scene a few years ago, they put out a slew of great titles. My favorite of the new Valiant books was Archer and Armstrong. It was smart, funny, and action packed. Basically, it was everything I liked in a comic book. So imagine my joy today when I got to read an advance review copy of Ivar, Timewalker #1, a book rooted deeply in the Archer and Armstrong mythology and created by the same great team. So is the greatness of the former series passed on to Ivar, Timewalker, or does this new series crash and fail? For the most part, I would say we are looking towards a bright future with this book, time travel puns not intended… Well maybe a little attended. Check out our preview here!
