Join Us To Celebrate Over 2 Years Of Geeky Antics & 100 Episodes!

Gang, we made it!

Over two years of Geeky Antics and 100 episodes of HorsePLAY! LIVE.  We could not have done it without you, our fellow geeks!  All the love, encouragement, donations, shout-outs, recommendations, referrals..  EVERYTHING helps us help others in their pursuits of passion, creativity, and geekdom.  Thank you!

NEW!  Text and call us at (646) 801-2149 – our new hotline!

100 episodes is a big milestone for any podcast so we HAVE to celebrate this feat with HorsePLAY! LIVE.  In this article, you’ll find some of our old videos (be sure to scroll all the way and click the “Read More” link), graphics you can use on your web site, and things we have coming up for Geeky Antics Network Global!  As part of our celebration, we’ll be bringing back the segment “Obi On The Podi” and bringing in everyone possible for a community call / crazy train wreck.  We hope you can join us for the live broadcast on Twitch!

HorsePLAY! LIVE started as yet another gaming podcast, with heavy focus on MOBAs (particularly League Of Legends), console wars, and strategy games.  Since those humble origins, we’ve become the voice of the Geeky Antics Network and our awesome community, affectionately called “The GANG”.  These days, we categorize our show as a comedy but, really, it’s all about having fun and discussing all things geek.  Geek culture..  That really needs to be a category on iTunes.  We hope you can join us this week, whether it’s your first time or not!

COMING SOON To Geeky Antics Network Global

We’re building the GeekyAntics Network to go beyond typical podcast networks and media outlets.  Our goal is to set up automated and manual systems to help everyone grow their brand, maximize social media, and establish consistent, sustainable results.  We want to go beyond the “set it and forget it” mentality that a majority of online marketers have.  By working together and engaging in authentic, meaningful interactions, we are not only growing our individual brands but also forging relationships and inspiration to last a lifetime.  Remember: you are not alone.

There are lots of features and talents we’re working with to give content creators options and build G.A.N.G. (Geeky Antics Network Global) to be a one-stop shop for anyone looking to get into the gaming industry, writing, streaming, and/or podcasting.  Many of us have been in the field for many years and now we’re working together to lighten our individual workloads and stay motivated.  Here are some of the things in the pipelines:

  • New GeekyAntics Foundry feed with syndicated and exclusive podcasts.
  • GANG Minis feed with shorter podcasts and non-weekly shows.
  • Affordable podcast hosting alternatives for friends on PodBean, Podomatic, Libsyn, Spreaker, etc.
  • Managed services for podcasters and streamers including promotions, SEO, coaching, and social media management.
  • Branded short links and e-mail aliases to lend more credibility and trust to our independent contributors.
  • Custom reports, analytics, and insights formatted to provide actionable data, not mere numbers.
  • More premium services (including web design/optimization, graphic design, ghostwriting, copyediting, etc.) and referral directory!
  • …And other goodies to bring our friends unique, remarkable content and help content creators grow!

Walker Stalker Con 2014 Atlanta Highlights & Musings #WSCAtlanta #TWDFamily #TWTT #HorsePLAY

Happy Halloween!

I know it’s a little early but the coming weeks will be very busy for us on the network.  We’ll be with our families and catching up on projects here and there..  Don’t worry: while we may not be streaming, blogging, or podcasting much, we’ll be here in spirit..  And probably watching lots of horror movies and shows.  I know I will be watching American Horror Story and maybe Sleepy Hollow with my wife.  YAY!

Happy Halloween - Trick Or Treat - Tasteful Anime  Witch Wallpaper

 

I’m still on that Walker Stalker Con high but, sadly, I can’t enjoy it as much.  Duty calls as projects pile up and my family prepares to move…  But enough about me!

Here are a few videos that cover the highlights at Walker Stalker Con Atlanta 2014.  If you’ve never been to WSC, you’ll know what to expect.  If you went last year, you can get a feel for what has changed.  Read onward for some highlights and the burning question:

Is Walker Stalker Con [or conventions in general] a mere money grab?

I want to say that I really enjoyed the convention but, as with anything else, there were opportunities.  We’ll get into that after the “video break”.  Sit tight, friends!

On-Location At AmericasMart Atlanta: Walker Stalker Con Fan Reactions & Event Photos

 

Walker Stalker Con was a fun event to go to as a fan and there was plenty to cover as media.  There were tons of panels, celebrities, vendors, and other attractions.  WAY too much to cover in proper detail.  Here are the main things that stood out for me.

Before I share my impressions and opinions here, I want to note that this was my first Walker Stalker Con but I have been to many conventions.  Typically, conventions are forgettable to me but WSC has something special to it.  I believe my feelings here may be in the minority because I don’t get excited by autographs and star-studded events.  Before I share my thoughts, here is what I look for in a convention to consider it worthwhile:

  • You’ll enjoy the event regardless of how much money you spend.
  • Vendors get enough foot traffic to justify booth costs.
  • Autographs and photo ops are subsidized or minimal to provide more time/focus for other events.
  • Event schedules account for waiting/travel times, breaks, and the like.
  • Merch mark-up covers costs but does not exhibit extreme profit margins (i.e. greed).
  • It is clear that fans of all kinds are the priority.
  • Media is given proper access and treatment without taking away from paying guests.
  • Behind-the-scenes information and anecdotes..  Stories worth sharing!

These are some of the things I’ll be pondering as I share my thoughts on Walker Stalker Con Atlanta.  Now let’s jump in!
