Happy Tuesday, Indiana Geeks! I know, it feels like I have forgotten about, and forsaken, you, but fear not, I am back with your fresh, exciting, and newly updated Tuesday Tidbits! Since we’re square in the middle of May, we’re still only looking at May and June, but we’ve got some great stuff happening on these lists, including a few new items! In addition, I’ve got some new merch up on the Geeking My Merch page (info below), and I’ve been spending a lot of my spare time prepping a couple of new items that aren’t the blog’s logo, but are still related to the blog, for Indy PopCon! I’m also prepping for two podcast interviews/discussions this coming weekend, so you’re going to have some cool new stuff to fill your earholes over the next few weeks, as well!
Now, though, let’s jump into the calendar!
What’s happening in the month of May, besides racing?
- May 19th: Porter Book Extravaganza! Porter Books & Bread in Indianapolis/Lawrence/Old Fort Ben Harrison has good food and coffee, and they are very supportive of local authors! Go check out their line-up, including friends of the blog Chris & Gin, 2/3 of the Pitched team!
- May 20th: Fort Wayne’s Gaming, Sports Cards, Comics & Collectibles Market! Held at Glenbrook Square in Fort Wayne, this popped up on my Facebook feed, and I thought some folks might be interested! Take a peek at their Facebook page for more info!
- May 23rd: The Head Geek’s Birthday! No wish list this year, I just want everyone to do something nice for someone else on May 23rd. For me, please.
Now, let’s look ahead to June!
- June 1st: The Shake Ups CD Release! The Shake Ups will be releasing their newest pop culture-themed album, Legendary Defenders, at a release show at Radio Radio in Fountain Square! Check out the event for more information!
- June 8th – 10th: Indy PopCon! The home town home team returns for their fifth year! This pop culture convergence is bringing in YouTube personalities, professional cosplayers, and actors for a great few days in downtown Indianapolis! Get your tickets now, and keep your eye on the blog to find out what Geeking in Indiana will be doing at the show!
- June 14th: Thursday Night Live at The Shoefly Public House! Team Geeking member Aric “TikiKitchen” Harris is a member of the musical group Eddie and the Mai Tais, and they will be performing at the Shoefly Public House on this night! Go, and enjoy good food, and some Hawaiian music, and show your support for our Graphical Guru!
- June 16th: Author Signing at Aw Yeah Muncie! Aw Yeah Comics in Muncie is bringing in three local authors to show you their books! Patrick J. O’Brian, Charles Kelley, and Adam K. Moore will be there from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM! Check out more info on the event link!
- June 30th: All Things Handmade Craft Fair! Held at Who North America in Camby, this craft fair features local crafts people, many of which make Geeky wares! There are a few friends of the blog vending, so I urge you all to check it out!
Now, what’s happening with the blog, the blogger, and friends of the blog?
- Today’s Picture: Sleepy Geek Cat. Also, a hint to some things that will be coming during Indy PopCon in less than a month!
- Kickstarter – Treacherous! The newest game from DNA Games just went live! This is a hidden identity game, for two to seven players, from a local game maker! Place your order before it’s gone on June 16th!
- New Merch! Over on my My Merch site, I’ve added two new items! First, I’ve got an 11 oz. coffee mug, because people were commenting how empty the 15 oz. looked when used with a Keurig! Also, since it’s currently 90 degrees out, I’ve got a Geeking in Indiana knit cap, which I’m hoping they’ll let me wear at work because I’m right under an AC unit! Remember, when you buy through My Merch, not only are you getting cool Geeking items, you’re also helping the blog, and you’re supporting a local business!
- Do you like how the blog looks? Then check out Studio 27 Indy and TikiKitchen Design. I just write this stuff. They’re the ones that make me look good. Also, check out the art page on TikiKitchen Design! There’s some great stuff on there! It’s TikiBitchin!
