Eliza Skinner (Diamond Lion, Baby Wants Candy) and Joshua Silverstein (“The hardest working beatboxer in LA”) host some of Los Angeles’ finest comedians in an improvised rap battle decided by the audience.

You’ve seen 8-mile, right? It’s like that but double, and way funnier.

NerdMelt Presents @SexNerdSandra Podcast LIVE! 6/07/2011

If you live in Los Angeles and happen to be a nerd and/or comic book fan, you have likely heard of the NerdMelt series of events that have been taking place at Meltdown Comics over the last few months. Not only are we here at Nerds in Babeland huge fans of Meltdown Comics, we also happen to have a special place in our heart for all things Nerdist related (in case you haven’t noticed).

This week they have an awesome show hosted by a fellow lady nerd, Sandra Daughetry.  “Sex Nerd” Sandra Daughetry is the lead sex educator at Pleasure Chest LA and has been teaching sex and intimacy skill workshops for over two years, helping thousands of people improve their sex lives. Now The Nerdist’s own sexpert brings those skills to the back of a comic book store! Come and see the woman who brought you “The Crab Hand of Doom” & “The Clittiest Part of the Man-Clit” live and in person as she geeks out on the finer points of orgasming your life and answers your most intimate questions.There will be guests! Prizes! Even sex toy reviews!

Down in Front does Raiders LIVE at MELTDOWN!

[Hey! You! RSVP on Facebook!] It’s been two crazy years since we started this little Down in Front thing, with no idea of how many people would get into it. I mean, it’s a hard sell, on paper.

“A two hour podcast where four industry guys have a beer and figure out exactly what’s wrong with Terminator 4? Um, it’s a bad movie, it made Christian Bale mad, nothing happened. Duh. What’s right with Die Hard? Everything, of course. Let’s leave it at that.”

But it turns out, folks really like smart conversations about movies. Or we’re charming. Or funny. Or seductive. Or good at this.

Eh, probably seductive. And we provide alcohol.

Anyway, the show has been a big damned success, and – despite our confusion – we’re excited about it. So we’re really, really, really excited to announce that for our 100th episode and the first episode of year three, we’re doing a GIANT LIVE SHOW AT MELTDOWN COMICS.

And we’re doing the most-requested movie we’ve had: RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

Meltdown is the premier nerd destination on the west side of the North American continent, and it’s situated square in the center of downtown Hollywood. The short version is, it’s the biggest comic book and pop culture shop you’ve ever seen. It’s Comic-Con with an address. (And no Twilight panels.) The even shorter version is: it’s the best place on Earth. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Meltdown is mecca for a Down in Front listener. (It works the other way, too: if you like Meltdown, you’ll love Down in Front.) And that’s exactly where we’re going.

Mark your calendars, and fill your gas-tanks, because if you’re within a day’s drive of Los Angeles you’re going to want to join the party: Friday, March 4th, at 8 p.m. $8 at the door buys you a seat and free booze. (I said free booze just then.) (I did it on purpose.) (Free booze. I did it again.) You can expect a seriously fun time spent with the four of us, Indiana Jones, and a big damned excitable crowd of people who love Raiders of the Lost Ark as much as you do. It will be the only place to be for a filmy geek that weekend.

(Free booze.)

Show up a bit before 8:00 p.m. and browse around the store, buy things, do what you usually do when you find yourself in the coolest nerd store on the planet. (Except for that one thing you do. There’s security cameras, people.) At 8:00, we’ll head back to the gallery and start filling you up with DIF juice – literally and figuratively – as we discuss the mind-bendingly awesome RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

Afterwards there will be a QnA with the panel: Teague Chrystie, Brian Finifter, Michael “Dorkman” Scott, and Trey “The Amazing” Stokes. Never heard an episode of the show before? Well, you could start now, or just trust us: it’s a good time. Bring your friends, bring your enemies, bring your mom. It’s on.

Meltdown Comics & Nerds in Babeland Present: Course in Zombiology

Join us Thursday, January 20, 2011, at 7pm PST at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles or at nerdsinbabeland.com/chat in the discussion for our first ever Comic Book-of-the-Month club, focused entirely on The Walking Dead. Learn more about the books, the television series, or just geek-out with a bunch of fellow Walking Dead-Heads. Want to know more? Then read on!

Have you ever wanted to get into comic books but have no interest in superheroes and/or mutants? Or, perhaps you have never thought about getting into comics but happen to be a huge fan of all things horror/zombie/gruesome? Or you are already obsessed with The Walking Dead and just looking for people to geek out about the book and series with? At the meet-up, we will discuss the book series from the beginning, and why it might be the perfect book for you to pick up if you’ve been toying with the idea of getting into graphic novels but haven’t taken the plunge.

Jenna Busch (Moviefone Minute, Huffington Post, Cineboobs) will be leading a discussion on the hit AMC program show based on the series, followed by a discussion lead by Stephanie Wooten from Nerds in Babeland on the best-selling comic book series.  In between the discussions we will even provide a zombie make-up tutorial by Jackie Bagwell, an owner & organizer of Ashtoberfest (a week-long festival dedicated to all-things zombie).

All attendees will get 20% off all purchases at Meltdown, Inc during the duration of the event. Can’t be there in person because you don’t live in Los Angeles? Show up to the online chat and receive a discount code good for 20% any online order placed through Meltdown Comics.

What: Comic Book-of-the-Month club.

When: Thursday, January 20, 2011 7PM PST.

Entry fee: $6.00 You’ll also have the opportunity to enter a raffle in order to win a copy of a Walking Dead graphic novel.
