As you might imagine, next to our birthdays and any other holiday where we recieve gifts, our favorite holiday is Halloween!
It’s that time of the year where you don’t have to deal with Con-Funk or costs but still get to go out in public dressed up as your favorite characters without being judged. Heck, you can even dress up in a crappy costume and with almost complete confidence of not winding up on a “Worst of Cosplay” list! Not that that happened to any of us or anything…*ahem*…..
Anyway, for the rest of the time leading up to the holiday, we’re going to focus on some more “spirited” content, starting with Continue reading
So, the Nerd-Base site has been up and running for almost a year and a half now. Sure, we don’t update as much as I’d like, but I like to think the things we do put here are excellent and worthwhile! People seem to love our PODCAST and Brian’s My Corner of the World series (making a long-awaited return today!), but I’m proud of what we’ve done. Every time I start to feel like the site and it’s content are losing a bit of steam, I just need a good reminder, and for a few years now, I’ve had this little gem. It’s helped me, it’ll help you too!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
We’ve got a lot of exciting content coming up, NEW videos, podcasts, and original content, plus we’re going to the Geek Creation Event, AnimeNext, and the big one, NYCC 2013!!! Stick around!
Many moons ago, I started hanging out with a young lady who would become a staple in b-movies and the horror scene/circuit, Ruby LaRocca. One day, she asked me to come by and introduced me to her roommate and his theremin. I was impressed, not not as much as when he pulled out an accordion and blew my mind with a few covers that I’d have never pictured on what is generally considered to be such a whimsical instrument. Well, that fellow’s name is Matt Dallow. If you frequent the NYC/Brooklyn underground/busking music scene, you very likely may have run into him. Whether it be solo or playing with Amour Obscur, he’s a pretty stand-out fellow and just a few moments ago he posted something that blew my mind again. Something that upon listening makes perfect sense, but at first will have you scratching your head.
Here’s the theme music to HBO’s Game of Thrones played on accordion by Matt Dallow (check below the video after the cut for his contact info) Continue reading

Not that they need the extra traffic, but I really have to give it up to the Comic Book Resources website. They consistently post great, informative articles and are one of the best places to get the latest comics news. But that’s not what this post is about.
This post is about two things, CBR’s “Comics Should Be Good” blog, specifically its weekly series called “The Line Is Drawn” where a group of artists (about 16 regulars) post artwork based on suggestions to the blog’s weekly topic on their twitter account. This week’s was “…come up with a sidekick for a superhero who’s never had an official sidekick”, which leads me to the other topic of this particular post. A bit of praise to a good, old friend of mine, and a fantastic artist, John Trumbull.
I met John while performing in the local Rocky Horror show. He had recently graduated from Joe Kubert’s art school at the time. In all these years, I’d never really seen much of his art, save for bits and pieces he showed us, or posted in the early innerwebs days.
As of late, he has been a regular artist for the “Line is Drawn” series and I have consistently found myself more and more impressed and proud of my friend. This week’s piece, however, is his best yet. But then, I’ve said that with each new piece he posts.
