Missed out on Ucon south africa

Finally an event like comiccon has come to south africa. Ucon! Its something I’ve always dreamt of going for. I mean you get to see cosplay, making friends with other gamers and anime fans.
Its the ultimate convention for comicbook junkies, anime and gaming addicts.

Unfortunately it was in another city a bit far from me so I could not go and not to mention I’m broke! So no money to spend and travel there. Still it gives me hope for next year. This years Ucon was unexpected and a huge surprised because we never really had anything like this in south africa before.

I’m sure my friend Zak would agree its definitely worth investing for next year! I mean we die hard anime fans and need a place where we can go and share that passion. For example cosplay! Dressing up as our favourite anime character and just being someone else for the day, living in a fantasy world. Even if its just for a few awesome hours.

I may of missed out on this years UCON but next year I will definitely make a plan to go.

The rise of the nerd in you

The rise of the nerd in you

Nerds? Why do people associate that as being uncool. Maybe it’s an american stereotype, I don’t know. Frankly I find nerds to be cool and rather interesting. I wish I was a nerd. Nerds are smart, brilliant, intellectual, tech savy, intelligent. Who wouldn’t want to be all that. If nerds was so uncool why is it that there is such a popular tv show like the big bang theory. Why? Because people can relate. Perhaps secretly people are nerds and maybe they hide they inner nerd to avoid social ridicule.

Here in south africa being a nerd isn’t much of an issue like in america. In south africa if you are a nerd! you will be everyone’s go to guy ,but sadly you will get used and abused for your skills. Because everyone wants to save and avoid spending money, for example a pretty girl next door doesn’t want to spend money to repair her computer, so she decides I’ll just use the nerd next door to do it for free.

I don’t buy the nerd stereotype. If being smart is a crime! Arrest me. Maybe nerds need to work on their physical appearance when it comes to clothes and glasses they wear! In my own way I’m nerdy and love comic books, comic book movies, technology and gadgets without the nerdy appearance. There’s nothing wrong with having an inner nerd, just know how you use it. I’ve seen lots of nerdy guys dating models and beautiful girls. If anything the radical of the nerds is over.


It is an new era where nerds rule. Now days having the latest technology and gadgets is such a trend and without even knowing it people have become nerdy. Think about it? besides having technology and gadgets notice how people are socialising like nerds on social networks ,instant messengers, chatroom’s and being antisocial. So don’t you notice the change in you or are you afraid to say it out loud! I am nerdy.

#So better believe it you are living in the era of the nerds.
