#TWTT Soft Kitty Singing Contest Details & Voting Page @Faryna @Yogizilla

Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Sleepy Kitty

Fellow Whovians, Whovers, geeks, and Hearthstoners – here is the official Timey-Wimey Tea Time Singing Contest page!

Stan feels terrible about my sleeping issues so he has rallied the TWTT community to have everyone sing me some lullabyes.  The song of choice is Soft Kitty!  As an incentive, three of the best singers, as selected by the TWTT and overall Geeky Antics community, will win one of three Hearthstone throw pillows.

BTW, we are not affiliated with anyone discussing testicles and other nonsense under the #TWTT hashtag.  We apologize about the confusion in advance!

You may not love Hearthstone or video games as much as I do but, hey, it’s a throw pillow..  You can use it for cat naps, travel, or questionable decor.  It’s pretty darn spiffy, if you ask me!

NOTE:  This is a *contest* under the overall giveaways category.  The distinction is that selection of winners will be objective, as opposed to random.  Read “How It Works” section for details how this specific contest works.

#DoctorWho Weekend Starting September 12th 2014 – With @GadaboutGamer, @Yogizilla, and @Faryna!

Doctor Who Legacy Title Banner - DWL Code Giveaways!

Greetings and salutations, fellow Whovians, geeks, and creatives!

We have tons of updates, musings, and excitement to share with you so let’s jump right to it.  In case you missed our announcements on #TWTT EP3.5, the video has materialized below, for your enjoyment.  Stan Faryna also put together another lovely recap of what our community is calling the “Best Ever Doctor Who Podcast”.


Doctor Who - Doctor Who Catchphrases - Fantastic, Brilliant, Cool - Animated GIF

Fantastic!  Brilliant!  Cool!

Doctor Who Weekend – Timey Wimey Tea Time! #GeeksUnite

At 5pm Eastern / 10pm GMT today, September 12th, we’ll be doing a special Doctor Who Legacy Q&A with developers, Tiny Rebel Games, in collaboration with the fine folks of 42 Level 1.  Come hang out with me, Ali, and the AllGames community.  Since the Q&A will focus on this wonderful little mobile game, please keep questions related to the game itself and not the series.  Can you contain your Doctor Who love until Saturday morning? The developers have seen ahead so let’s not tempt them to spoil what’s to come (they really can’t, anyway).

Join The LIVE Chathttp://www.allgames.com/live

Come get some awesome!

We’ll be following up with the premiere of the Timey-Wimey Tea Time experience on AllGames on Saturday, September 13th, at 9am Eastern / 4pm GMT.  Stan and I will be traveling afterwards but we hope to follow up on Sunday with some Doctor Who marathons and, perhaps, inconceivable community events. I’m thinking group viewings and giveaways – if we see the love going on here in the comments.

Speaking of giveaways, there will be plenty during the Doctor Who Legacy special event.  In fact, everyone will get in-game items for Doctor Who Legacy just for showing up!

 

The GANG Doubled On YouTube

We have to mention this now: thanks to your fantastic support, our GeekyAntics YouTube channel subscribers have doubled in just a week. That’s how you grow a community.

The #TWTT community is growing geometrically and your enthusiastic support is overwhelming – in a good way!

Keep the voicemail messages, comments, faves, and shares coming! Even if we don’t always mention it, we are taking notice. It fills our hearts with joy to see so much love and beauty in the Doctor Who fan community!

The GANG Minute: Upcoming Schedule Changes, Doctor Who, And Payday 2 Giveaway

Doctor Who Season 8 Starts Saturday, August 23rd 2014

If you haven’t caught our new podcast, Timey-Wimey Tea Time, we have everything you need to know for Doctor Who Season 8.  This weekend will be a big one for sci-fi fans and Whovians worldwide yet, with all the buzz going around, there are still people that ask,

Doctor WHO??

With more than 50 years of shows, novels, fan fiction, audio dramas, games, and even comics under the belt, the Doctor Who series is something of a big deal.  Surprisingly, it’s not quite mainstream so you hipsters out there should give it a shot.  For realzies.

Doctor Who has romance, adventure, space exploration, time travel, eccentric characters, talking dogs, jelly beans, and high fashion sense.  There’s just so much to love in this series.  With Peter Capaldi coming in as the 13th Doctor, we old-school Whovians are wondering if the series is coming back to the roots.  Will this be the more serious, gritty, and suspenseful Doctor Who we’ve been hoping for?

Sorry, no Amy Pond..  And possibly no Clara.

 

Upcoming Geeky Antics Network Schedule Changes

We’ll be changing up our network schedule to make more room for random streams, marathons, hosting, and new podcasts.  As we already established, TGM won’t be a weekly vlog but we will be doing a monthly or bi-weekly TGM newsletter.  Please be sure subscribe to our Social Geeks mailing list so you never miss out on anything.  We’ll be using that as a way to compile all the latest geeky content and events on our network.

Timey-Wimey Tea Time is here and we have a couple of more shows coming up.  This new shows will provide platforms for us to talk about all facets of geek culture with the people that are most passionate about the subject matter.  There will be anime, fan fiction, creative writing, in-house artwork, science fiction, fantasy, and all sorts of delectably geeky discussions.  We hope you’ll join us as a guest or permanent host!

Doctor Who - Eleventh Doctor & Amy Pond - Matt Smith & Karen Gillan

Let’s Talk Doctor Who

Our Doctor Who fancast has been several months in the making and we need your help to figure out some topics to discuss.  Here’s a quick look at some of the topics we’ve been bouncing around:

  • Should K-9 come back as a companion?
  • Does Doctor Who need a strong female lead?
  • Should a future Doctor be a woman?
  • How do you introduce/ease friends and family into Doctor Who?
  • What is the appeal of the show?
  • What are the opportunities and things we are wishing they’d fix?
  • Biggest plot holes during the Matt Smith era.
  • Our favorite Doctors and companions.

Some of our guests include Matt Bradford, Alistar Kennedy, Chris Gannon, and Andy Fewtrell.  If you follow us at AllGames.com and the GANG, you’ll know just who we are talking about!

 

Gaming Trivia Power Hour

Check out the Gaming Death Podcast Episode 106 for Gaming Trivia Power Hour.   I went completely derp and suddenly forgot all my years of gaming, reminding me why I suck at trivia.  Man, I choked like the New York Knicks.  LOL…  It was fun and we should be doing more of that in the future so stay tuned!

 

Fundraising And Streaming Ramp-Up

We’ll be ramping up our streaming and video production efforts.  On a personal note, I will be doing more fundraising.  Many of you have encouraged me to make a push for fundraising so it will happen.  Expect some Twitch marathons and special streams soon.  For now, you can donate here:

http://GeekyAntics.net/donate

The Gaming Death Podcast crew will also be doing Extra Life soon.  No date set as of yet but we should be doing some marathon streaming in October 2014.  For charity!

 

Gun Monkeys Steam Community Banner

Reward UNLOCKED!  Gun Monkeys!!

Gun Monkeys has been added to the pot for our latest giveaway.  Now one lucky winner will get Magic 2014 and Gun Monkeys for Steam.  w00t!

NOTE:  We *were* gonna add more prizes and winners but there just haven’t been enough shares..  Maybe next time!

Sooo, WTF is Gun Monkeys about?

Gorillas - QBASIC Gaming Bliss!

Remember Gorillas back in the [Q]BASIC days?  I equate Gun Monkeys to that but obviously with a more stylized, updated look and feel.  Anyone who loves Worms, Warheads, or anything of the sort should really dig Gun Monkeys.  It’s simple multiplayer action – with plenty of gun play.. and monkeys (Obezianka you should play this)!

Gun Monkeys - Gorillas For The New Age!

Get up in this giveaway action, y0.  You can win Gun Monkeys for Steam – WHEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Enjoy A Summer Vacation!! - Sakura, Naruto, Sasuke

Missed the latest TGM (The GANG Minute) video? We got you covered! This week’s was a quick one.. Not really.

Be sure to read the full TGM newsletter here for updates on Steam game giveaways!

 

Summer Vacation – How Do YOU Spend It?

July 2014 is going to be epic for the GANG..  But we’re taking baby steps.  It’s summer vacation for most of the world (well, at least here in the United States) so that means spending quality time with your family and loved ones..  And trying to stay sane. So how are you planning to spend your Summer, gang? Here at Geeky Antics we are going to squeeze in as much gaming as possible..  Many of us have fallen behind on our streaming but we will make up for it soon, we promise!  After all, we can’t let all those awesome games we picked up at GOG, Steam, Humble Bundle, or wherever go to waste!

As I mentioned in the TGM video, we will be releasing new podcasts this Summer.  Anyone into Doctor Who, Hearthstone, and/or game mechanics, amongst other topics should consider joining us!

Flash Fiction & Other Creative Writing Pieces Are LIVE!

Our storytelling area is officially live and in full effect.  Right now, Stan Faryna (@Faryna) and J M Bell (@StartYourNovel) are our main contributors but we’ll also be featuring third-party stuff.  We’re leaning towards lesser-known authors such as Wil Wheaton and Nika Harper.  As always, this is our way of spreading the love and giving the “little guys” more UMPH.

http://GeekyAntics.net/storytelling

Oh, and we have Monty Python!  I know we have some aspiring authors/writers out there so don’t be shy.  Share your creativity, fan fiction, and love!

…And now for something completely different…

 

Hearthstone Curse Of Naxxramas BREAKING NEWS

Blizzard finally got around to announcing their announcements and confirming the Curse Of Naxxramas pricing model.  As confirmed by Polygon:

One wing will cost $6.99 or 700 in-game gold. Blizzard will be selling bundles for people who want to buy multiple wings at once. Those who start playing during Curse of Naxxramas’ launch event can pay $19.99 for the four wings following the Arachnid Quarter.

If you pay for each Curse Of Naxxramas installment on it’s own, you’re looking at spending around $28 so the “season pass” seems like a great deal.  To clarify, there is one free wing to boot and then four additional ones.  Blizzard will make this a month-long roll-out..  It will be EPIC!

As promised, here are the leaked Curse Of Naxxramas photos! [Read more…]

The GANG Minute: Launch Party, Game Dev Tycoon Giveaway, And Steam Gift Exchange

Steam Summer Sale 2014 - June 19th Through June 30th - Gabe Newell Is Jesus?

*** GIVEAWAY ALERT:  Read the full article for a Game Dev Tycoon giveaway at the end.  Remember: some entries can be earned daily..  Such as tweeting out.  Be sure to copy the tweet URL to validate the entry.  Good luck!  GANG contributors are welcome to participate.  I am not allowed to win, of course, because I am the one giving the prize away.  LOL ***

 

Hey GANG!

I’ve been running around like a chicken without a head – in a GOOD way!  We’re working on launching new shows, do some giveaways and contests, and keep the momentum going.  Pardon the marketing talk but, really, momentum rocks..  We are making big moves!

What momentum am I talking about?  Peep the video version of The GANG Minute.

 

…And now for some highlights and latest haps!

Geeky Antics Network Launch Party

What is this business about a launch party?  Well, it’s more like a marketing campaign but that’s boring.  This is a big celebration.

  • We are celebrating hitting some big milestones during our soft launch/beta phase – 3K+ fans on Facebook – w00t!
  • We are celebrating our awesome shows, collaborators, contributors, and supporters.
  • We are celebrating the influx of donations in the form of love, monetary support, games, services, etc.
  • We are celebrating YOU!

There’s no end date for the campaign.  Basically, the better the results, the more we will keep it going.  We need your help.

Tell your friends about what we are doing here.  The Geeky Antics network is here to help geeks liberate their content and level the playing field.  The 1% dominates so many spaces, podcasting and streaming inclusive, and we want to empower others to get A-Lister results without losing their souls.  We hope this excites our community as much as our contributors.

I am passionate about our mission to bring quality, authentic geeky content to a more global audience.  Our vision is simple: we want to be a Geek & Sundry that will focus more on engagement and niche content with a simple approach, rather than featuring huge personalities or focusing on high production value.  We’re hoping by celebrating and creating the good kind of hype, we can rally more people behind these core values and ideals.

As part of this campaign, we will launch several events and new content series.  This includes, but is not limited to, giveaways, contests, podcasts, streams, marathons, and fundraisers.  Nothing is set in stone because we like to stay nimble so we will play off each other.  Please help us out by sharing our excitement with your friends and family.

 

New Features, Content, And Goodies

We have a CRAP-TON of awesome new features and goodies on the new Geeky Antics site.  Here’s a quick run-through:

  • Site registration
  • Custom profiles & avatars
  • LIVE TV
  • Achievements
  • Friending
  • Forums
  • YouTube sharing
  • Twitter sharing
  • Open commenting

That’s just for starters.  We’ll go more in-depth during HorsePLAY! LIVE so be sure to join us on the GeekyAntics Twitch channel Thursday at 9pm EDT.

One of the most exciting things we are adding are two new areas.  The first will allow us to do fundraising for individual contributors and the network as a whole.  The biggest one is our Storytelling section.  Here, we will feature community submissions in the form of short stories, fan fiction, haikus, or whatever other creative writing you guys share with us.  We will also share stuff from aspiring authors and other awesome geeks you might have heard of (Nika Harper, we’re looking at you).

Please keep checking back.  We’re doing constant updates to the site and they’re all kind of a big deal. *grin*
