Thanks for a great time Felicia Day and the Geek & Sundry team. Being in your company was the highlight of San Diego for me this year!
Back at Geek & Sundry HQ. Felicia kicked Tiger Monkeys ass at Magic! This was live streamed. James started a few chants with the crowd of I say Tiger you say…MONKEY!
Felicia then destroyed this gentleman… but I can’t for the life of me remember his name 😀
Everything comes to he who waits 🙂
I was lucky enough to get into the Geek & Sundry panel and it was worth the wait. I love the chat between Wil & Felicia, they always entertain! New shows were announced and Sachie & Amy spoke about the vlogs. I’m sure the panel will end up on YouTube for you to watch yourselves eventually.
I finally got to ask a question in front of this large crowd. Mr Tiger Monkey got there just ahead of me 😀
The Geek & Sundry SDCC panel was held in the Hilton hotel Indigo Ballroom like last year. I attended last year and queued for about an hour, just missing the first 10 minutes and getting stuck at the back of the hall. This year I decided to go even earlier to get a better seat. I expected less of a line… how wrong I was!
SDCC TIP! Check what other events are on in the room you are going to. I did not realise beforehand that the panel directly after Geek & Sundry was the first ever appearance of the cast of How I Met Your Mother! People had been camping out overnight and I am sure many loyal Geek & Sundry fans missed out on the G&S panel because of this!
Wil Wheaton was playing the Star Trek Settlers of Catan Board Game. He let out a great cry of victory when he won. I was expecting a WHEEEEAAATTTOOOOOOONNNN! From the opposition but it never came 😀
In San Diego this year I spent a lot of time at the Geek & Sundry offsite events at Jolt ‘n Joe’s. I have become a big admirer of Felicia Day and the things she creates so I took this rare opportunity to absorb all I could during my time in San Diego!
I took lots of photos. Here are some from the Geek & Sundry events and a little bit of Nerd HQ too. If you are planning to go to an event always plan ahead. If you have time, go there before the event to check the location in advance, so you don’t get lost and turn up late when it starts. Here is Joes before G&S arrived.
The first event was a Felicia Day meet and greet. I made sure I was early. A queue was already forming which went around the corner too.
Inside was a cool area with a bar, lots of comfortable seating. Items for sale and a small stage area with the coolest Geek & Sundry logo. Well done to whoever made that!
Felicia came on stage and entertained the crowd which was a great start to the event. This was followed by a signing.
Later that day Jenni Powell introduced the current vloggers who chatted and answered questions. I wanted to ask questions but my mind went blank. Sorry guys 🙂 Jenni gave me a shout-out and I waved to the crowd. Thanks Jenni, wasn’t expecting that 🙂
In the next room was a gaming area sponsored by AMD.
I played some great games. Should have turned flash off 🙂
I watched Rock Jocks while I was there on a different day. The film was really funny, entertaining and had a lot of bad language with Sci-Fi and a smoking Jesus alien. Some of the cast watched it with us! Felicia kicked ass! What more could you ask for? We were also treated to meet the cast and get more signed goodies!

So I got through to the top 30! Woohoo! Now there are 9 days to vote to determine the final 10 who will get a regular spot on the Geek & Sundry channel. Don’t forget you can vote once a day!
I don’t have a massive following so every vote counts. At this rate I’ll be handing out flyers at Comic-Con next week 😀
Anyway here’s the link to my second video. This follows on from my first where I drew Felicia Day. Because of your votes you decided she should be painted as a robot. This is the video I created while I did it!
Thanks for watching and voting!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me so far in this quest to become a Geek & Sundry vlogger!
I am very happy to confirm I have been selected in the top 30 to go through to the final round of voting 😀
For the final round I will create a second video. Voting for the final round takes place from the 10th to the 19th of July.
Details and links to follow when I have them.
Here is my original video which got me through the first round. It’s far from perfect but did the job. I’ll be looking to improve key areas in my next video.
Hi Everyone. I have drawn a picture of Felicia Day but I need your help to decide how to finish the drawing before I paint it.
Should she become a Robot, zombie or a reptile?
If you would like to see how I created this drawing click here to watch my Geek & Sundry Vlog. Please vote for me if you like the video as it could give me the opportunity to make more videos for Geek & Sundry.
To help me choose Robot, zombie or reptile click here to go to the Tube page where you can add a comment.
I really want to make this ambition a reality so I’d really appreciate it if anyone can take the time to vote and comment 🙂
Here’s the drawing so far.
I met the inspirational Felicia Day again, the first time was at the Starfury event in London earlier this year. It was at that event I was introduced to her work and discovered what a hard working, funny and down to earth person she is!
Don’t throw away that scifiartist.com card I gave you! lol 😀 I’ll be doing a Felica painting in some shape or form very soon so watch this space!

Earlier in the day I’d been to the Geek & Sundry panel. There was a big queue to get in and even then I missed the start and was stuck at the back, However it was a very funny panel and worth the wait!
