This week at Curicon HQ

We have not employed Ron Burgandy to write this blog

The week in brief;

This week we have been drinking copious amounts of tea and energy drinks, finding cool stuff for you guys to add to your library, cleaning up after Chuckie (our cockatiel) who has a penchant for leaving ‘presents’ on our keyboards and trying to figure out the riddle that is Pinterest. Why do you log on for 5 minutes and then find that 2 hours has passed?? Is it in actual fact a time machine masquerading as an online pinboard?? Answers on a postcard please.

Things we think you should check out this week;

If you’ve been living under a rock…come out from under there, you’ll catch your death of cold. You should be checking the following out…

S.U.D.S- Simian Undercover Detective Squad. Co-written and produced by the talented Deb Loftis and Perry Sachs these simian detectives are guaranteed to have you in fits of laughter.  It’s like the muppets…. but on crack. Hilarious. Play it safe, this is probably NSFW! Now showing on the Nerdist Channel. Which you should also check out.

For the Whovians among you, who (geddit?? Sorry) wouldn’t want to visit this bar? It’s now on our hit list of things to see and do when we go to New York for Comic Con NY in October. Just added ‘Pee in the Tardis’ to the collective bucket list of the Curicon peeps. Don’t judge. You know you’d do it too, given half the chance. Particularly having read the lyrically descriptive musings of the lovely Jamila from Girl Gone Geek

The Doctor

For all you gamers out there, if you haven’t checked out Wil Wheaton on Geek and Sundry, we suggest that you do. Loving Small World already. It’s fun and has massive replay value. What are you doing still reading this post??? Go!

If you’re still with us after watching Wil and the gang, we salute you, Vulcan-style.

This week, Aimee has been adding to our already extensive library of collectables resulting in a trip down memory lane when we saw these;

Mad Magazine

And this;


And a strong desire for a Tim Burton movie marathon when we saw this;

In other news, if you were having trouble accessing the site this week, we apologise. There was a brief moment in time when Curicon had a bit of a tantrum but we placated it with biscuits and chocolate and now all is right with the world. So that means you can upload your collection, and add to your wish list to your heart’s content.

The perfection that is Curicon

Do keep dropping by. It makes us all warm inside when people keep coming back (and there are a LOT of you now. So thanks).  Over the next few weeks, you’ll see lots of cool new features, which we won’t tell you about now. It’s like a thriller movie and we like to maintain the suspense…. suffice to say they are truly awesome and will knock your socks off. Literally. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Have an awesome weekend.  Do say hello to us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Tumblr. Sometimes 7 days is just too long to wait to say hi again J

P.S: Has anybody watched the new Morgan Spurlock movie Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope? We haven’t seen it just yet but Peter Gutierrez has written a review, which you can read here. What did you think?
