It’s almost here! We’re just over two weeks away from international Geek Mecca, San Diego Comic Con 2012! The panels, the parties, the comics, THE SWAG!!! We can’t wait to get out on that show floor and tear it… oh yeah, we weren’t able to get passes this year. BUT WAIT! We know people who did! Join us this week as we are joined once again by The David, our Comic Con guru, as well as the oft mentioned “The Girlfriend” (aka Amanda) as we discuss some tips and tricks for surviving four days at SDCC, both inside and out. Gas up the Batmobile, pack extra underoos, and watch out for hobos (true story) as we prepare for four days of awesome geekdom on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
(05:15) – Need a sweet ride for when the pesky Zombie Apocalypse comes? Karen has the wheels for you! – Hyundai Zombie Survival Machine
(08:03) – The David is addicted to Skylanders and judges his daughter for it, so he makes her watch Breaking Bad (not really) and Workaholics (probably).
(28:45) – It’s topic time! We start it off with a talk lodging experiences and SNAFU’s, parking and public transportation, and the extra special non-Con craziness. One word, Hobos…
(37:45) – If you are going to be around people, wash yo’ ass!
(39:00) – We provide a PSA for those with badges of the illicit nature, shady job opportunities and we talk about the Gaslamp Quarter events outside the convention. – Questionable Craigslist Ads, Nerd HQ, and we hate on Tr!ckster.
(57:17) – Other “outside the Con” events include the San Diego Zombie Walk, live Nerdist Podcast recordings, an Aquabats show, and Hollywood Babble On. Plus, superhero pub crawls and a discussion on questionable meet-ups.
(1:00:50) – We talk about possibly the best panel at the Convention, courtesy of Adult Swim and we discuss our tips to make the most of your adventures on and off the Con floor. Also, meet Robert at The Field.
