As I had mentioned in my previous post this was the first Steampunk/Victorian convention I have had the chance to attend and the atmosphere was great. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The costumes worn by con-goers were amazing and well done. It felt like you were swept into another world. The attention to detail was stunning. When you get that feeling of escape from reality, you know you’re going to have a great con experience. Many people stayed in character the entire day as well, which made for an even more fun experience.
There is much to talk about. Where to start?
Are you a fan of comedy, horror, and amazingly beautiful hosts?! Of course you are!
I was so excited to watch The Sound of Music Live last night. It felt like NBC was back in the golden age of television when networks weren’t cooking up their next reality TV debacle, or trying another pathetic attempt at breathing new life into the sitcom genre. I was excited to see a modern television production attempt to tackle an old broadcast tradition. One of the hardest things to do in entertainment is live theater. Did NBC pull it off?
So Thanksgiving has come and gone and it’s the holidays. It’s that magical time of year when you eat a lot of food, get invited to a lot of parties, and begin to subconsciously ask yourself, “Dear God, what am I doing with my life?” Or is that just me? Let’s face it Millennials, we’re getting older. It’s time to start wrapping up your fun and fancy free 20s and start gearing up for career domination in your 30s. I’ll be 29 in January, and for 2014 I could just set any old resolution–or I could try something different.

While geekiness is an interesting, colorful lifestyle, there is admittedly a lot to keep up with! From the latest video game news to ever-changing facets of Internet culture, being a geek these days is a full-time job. Fortunately, here on the Pincushion Podcast Blog, we offer a weekly roundup of some of the biggest developments throughout the past week in geekdom.
A nother live taping of The Pincushion Podcast went without a hitch, and we have an episode to prove it! We set up shop at The Farmacy Rx on 45th and Spruce to raise money for Philabundance. You see, we remembered all the bad things we did this year, and we thought it was high time we started being a little charitable.
So from 5-9 p.m. Philadelphians filed into the restaurant to raise money to fight hunger while treating themselves to a little pre-Thanksgiving meal. We raised about $25o at the door and collected over 500 canned goods! Wow! We’re so happy to be able to give back to the City of Brotherly Love, and we thought the night was a huge success.
