The Heroes and Villains Fan Fest emanated from the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center in Edison, NJ on September 8th and 9th, where the biggest stars from comics television and film were there and fans were able to pose for photos with them, get autographs, and take part in Q&A panel discussions. The fest heavily featured stars from DC’s TV Universe or “Arrow-verse” on The CW. Stars from Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and more were there as well as stars from Fox’s Gotham.
The opening panel of the weekend was the Firestorm panel featuring the trio of actors who’ve portrayed the character: Victor Garber, Robbie Amell, and Franz Drameh. The stars talked about their superhero favorites, and took an array of questions from the eager crowd. And moderating the panel was my wife Athena (Olympus Athens) and myself Dan (Dr. Zaius) of Geeks Of Doom.
Check out the video of our moderating debut here below.
This week, Greg Davies from the BlendoveR podcast and frequent Geeks of Doom contributor (including the Tardisblend podcast) joins us to discuss how the National Security Agency is eavesdropping on our phone calls, e-mails, texts, and all online activity in the name of national security. Are we overreacting, or not acting enough? Also, the NSA may have our data, but they can never patent our DNA. Microsoft does a 180 on their followup to the 360, and Google creates a network of floating balloons…
Every year, Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74 and myself put together a compilation episode of the Social Blend podcast that focuses on some of the interesting (read: mostly ridiculous) moments from the year. 2010 was an awesome year for Social Blend and there were some great moments from the year.
In some ways, the podcast is almost like a “sister site” to Geeks of Doom. We often discuss content and news that’s been posted here, and have also had Dave3, Empress Eve, and Tched on the show as well. On top of that, TARDISblend originally came from Social Blend too.
