Me want to the 3Doodler Trekkie Style

ST-pens1_details.jpg

3Doodler

I’m ready to celebrate all things Star Trek as I count down the days for the premier of Star Trek: Discovery on CBS Access. 3Doodler has been inspired with their Star Trek Crew Edition Pen sets that are a love note to the original Star Trek series and Star Trek: The Next Generation. They are available for a limited time for only $99.99 and Sulu cool! Even George Takei is looking to doodle a few Vulcan ears for himself!

The videos make it look like someone with two left thumbs like myself can live out my fantasy to seek new worlds!

You can also buy the Create Star Trek Project Kit for $24.99 that has a special Star Trek Project Guide. The kit projects include Vulcan ears, Klingon forehead and Star Trek & Star Trek: TGN Enterprises ships too! Trekkies will love the 3Doodler Star Trek Crew Edition Pen sets! What a great idea for people who already have the 3Doodler pens to live out Trekkie dreams with these How-to-Do it patterns! This is so bringing me back to my childhood.

Am excited to get my Gamer Chick on with the new Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier game that will be out in time for holidays!

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier 
Epic Two-Episode Premiere Debuts December 20th
with ‘Ties That Bind’ Part I & Part II

 

After watching the mid winter finale of the series am already suffering from The Walking Dead withdrawal!

The launch of the new season in the acclaimed series will be a special two-part premiere with 2 episodes on the SAME DAY!

Episode One: ‘Ties That Bind’ Part I & Episode Two: ‘Ties That Bind’ Part II.
We get to play the game as we get to know Javier, his family and Clementine all trying to survive the Zombie scourge plaguing the world. As they explore the Walking Dead Universe they will get to meet new and old characters from Comic Books/TV. One familiar face will be Jesus and a few others that you have to wait to see when the games are released! As they leave the ‘safety’ of their home and see what the ‘New Frontier’ means .. I’m going out on a limb and say ZOMBIES <scream>
Clem and Baby AJ

The new series will have episodes and the first two will premier digitally worldwide starting Tuesday, December 20th on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam and other digital distribution services. Also on Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and on the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4. The episode will be available the same day for compatible iOS devices via the App Store and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play. Follow for updates on additional release dates and platforms.

Beginning in February, the series will also be available for purchase on a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, which will include the premiere episodes for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.
Users can pre-order the season for their favorite platform now by visiting https://telltale.com/series/the-walking-dead-a-new-frontier/#buy. As a special bonus, PlayStation 4 digital preorders also receive a complimentary copy of The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: Michonne; while Steam users receive a discount of 10% for preordering.
When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to protect his family, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will act as both a new beginning for players fresh to the series and unfamiliar with Clementine, as well as a continuation for players who have experienced Seasons One and Two. Players new to the series will be able to start a story that is tailored to this new beginning. Players continuing onward from prior seasons will have multiple options for quickly configuring their tailored backstory, or importing past save files from various platforms. Additional information on this feature will be detailed in the coming week.

July 10th, 2016 by Alexcea Matthews

Not too long ago I had the distinct pleasure of spending my day at two very different, but equally as informing, conventions around the LA area.

IMG_2442.jpg

Dwelling on all the Designs

I started my day–after spending 20 minutes looking for parking–at the LA Convention Center for the 11th annual Dwell on Design show. While there, I was able to browse around and check out up and coming architecture, furniture, appliances, comforts, and much more, for the modern age.

IMG_2417.jpg

Interior decorating meets Pinterest with Decorist and ATG stores.com.

I learned a lot about prefab housing from LivingHomes’ new spinoff Plant Prefab, and was even able to tour a few full-scale model houses. I also got to sit in the world’s most comfortable bean-bag chair from LoveSac, and get a massage from $8,000 god of a machine.

IMG_2430 (1).jpg

Lovely examples from VintageView Wine Racks

From interior decorators that can use your very own Pinterest boards to create your dream home–thanks Decorist– to wine racks specialized to your specifications, I have seen the future of housing, and I’m excited for more.

So after speaking with a few of the vendors and enjoying my second cup of coffee for the day, it was time to head out of DTLA and make my way to Pasadena for the 2nd annual Politicon Convention.

In only it’s second year, Politicon has firmly established itself as what Huffington Post calls “the Coachella of politics”. From Sarah Palin to 10-year old boys the line-up was extremely diverse.

IMG_2447.jpg

Should we #legalizeit? From right: Mat Ferner, Nicole Boxer, Jordan Carlos, John Ratzenberger, and Hal Sparks.

I had the pleasure of sitting in on a panel about the legalization of weed with a great and lively group of debaters. Matt Ferner, Nicole Boxer, Jordan Carlos, Hal Sparks, and  John Ratzenberger were all great at making their respective arguments and respecting one another’s positions.

IMG_2454 (1).jpg

Me with stand up comedian and recurring Colbert Report character, Jordan Carlos

Next and sadly finally, I enjoyed a hilarious comedy show with the likes of Jay Pharoah
Darrell Hammond,  Al Madrigal, and Greg Proops Toure. All were perfect at keeping the audience laughing while still talking about social issues and the political climate of our country–no easy feat!

IMG_2455 (1).jpg

Me with SNL’s best Kanye and President Obama impersonator, Jay Pharoah.

Eventually I had to say goodbye to my new friends at Politicon and make my way back home. And after 2o minutes of being lost in Pasadena, not able to find my car, I did just that.

Thank you to Cherry LA for letting me tag along on an amazing Sunday!

I adore the Pyrrha line for Game of Thrones. It appeals to my fangirl side with my beloved Starks but also hits my fashionable sweet spot with the tough pieces that would go with stylish tough preppy chic look!

December 20th, 2015 by Cherry

This is a Geek Gift to be promised over the holiday season since it will not be released until April but it’s one gorgeous gift for any Star Wars or Al Williamson fan. IDW will be releasing the late artist Al Williamson’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back stories in 2016. The collection will include issues #39 – #44 of the monthly Marvel Star Wars Comic, Star Wars #50, #98 and the Star Wars: Return of the Jedi mini series will be included.
The Artist’s Edition will be 160 pages in hardcover (14×21) perfect for display or just for someone’s collection of art books.

“Al loved drawing Star Wars,” said Williamson’s wife, Cori Williamson. “It’s a science fiction swashbuckler, the kind of story that really appealed to his sensibilities. As a lover and collector of classic comic-book and comic strip art, I think he would have been thrilled to see his work presented in this format.”

George Lucas commented after Williamson’s passing in 2010, “I was thrilled to be able to have Al depicting those early extended Star Wars adventures for the comic books and newspapers. In capturing the actors who portrayed the characters, he brought the feeling of the films to the page as few other artists have been able to do.”
You may not know Al William’s name but if you love comic books/graphic novels you’ve seen his work starting back in 1950 with EC Comics. In the 1960s he took Alex Raymond’s classic comic strip creation Flash Gordon to the comic book with his iconic reimagining. He also worked on comic strips that included  X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan and the Star Wars newspaper strip. His work earned him an Eisner Award and he was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic-Book Hall of Fame in 2000.

“The collaboration between IDW and Marvel has produced some of the most exceptional collections of reprinted original comic book material ever to be offered,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Al Williamson’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Artist’s Edition of the original Marvel Comics film adaptation is a brightly glowing star within the galaxy of immaculate Star Wars content.”
