Deborah Vankin, Author Of POSEURS, Geeky Pleasures Radio Show Interview Tomorrow, Live From San Diego Comic-Com
On Sunday, July 24, 2011, I’ll be doing a special Geeky Pleasures Radio Show broadcast, live from SDCC, on The Look 24/7 (@TheLook247). Deborah Vankin, staff writer for the Los Angeles Times (arts & culture entertainment and nightlife) and former editor-in-chief of the LA Times’ alt weekly publications/websites, Metromix LA and Brand X, and now graphic novel author, will be calling in at 12:30 pm PDT/ 3:30 pm EDT/ 8:30 pm in the UK for a brief chat about SDCC and her graphic novel, POSEURS.
Listening instructions for a variety of platforms—PC and smartphone—can be found here: http://thelook247.com/listen/. You are also invited to join me in chat, http://thelook247.com/chat/. This interview is expected to be quite brief, at roughly 30 minutes.
I hope to see you there.
Like many poor, unfortunate souls, I was unable to make the physical trek to San Diego International Comic-Con. However, thanks to the brilliance of technology and living in the future, I’ll still be in attendance, to some degree, and so can you!
Tonight, Geek Girls Network will be hosting their second annual SDCC GGN geek-out. The party begin at 7 pm PDT/ 10 pm EDT/ 1 am in the UK. This just happens to be the same time that I begin hosting my Geeky Pleasures Radio Show at The Look 24/7 (@TheLook247).
My friend, Arturo Garcia (@aboynamedart) is doing the music for the party. He asked me if it would be at all possible to call-in from the party and do a co-host type situation, talk about the con, talk about the party and, of course, geek-out. My response—after I contained my SQUEE—was, “Of course! We live in the future with all kinds of swell technology that allows this to be possible! This will be fun!”
But wait, it gets better! Nicole Wakelin (@NicoleWakelin), who I know through GeekMom, will also be at the party! This means she will also be on the phone tonight, live from the party, to discuss her first trip to SDCC and more. Plus, she will be helping to enable the shenanigans by running around the party, like a mad fool, and pulling other people onto the phone to talk about all things geek and SDCC related.
Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
If you are like me, poor and unfortunate, unable to attend SDCC but still would like to be there in some capacity, then we invite you to tune-in tonight, beginning at 7 pm PDT/ 10 pm EDT/ 1 am in the UK. Tuning-in is simple. You don’t even need to be at your computer. If you have a smartphone, you can listen from wherever you may be at the time. Isn’t technology awesometastic!
