  4. Cosplayers Dress Up As Carpet, Carpet Designers Are Not Pleased

    We Can't Have Nice Things

    At DragonCon last month, a couple of cosplayers decided to sidestep the usual fare of superheroes and cartoon characters in favor of dressing up as the carpet at the Marriott hotel where the con takes place. Yup, there was carpet-colored camo. That is a real thing that now exists. Naturally, other people wanted to emulate the design, but, alas, this psychedelic carpet army was not to be - because Courtisan Inc., the company that designed the original rug, issued a Cease and Desist soon after the design went up.

  5. Things We Saw Today: Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream

    Things We Saw Today

    You won't be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you're on Croatia's Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili's ice cream shop. It's pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like "chewing gum and candy" drizzled on top. So it's geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn't have much to it. Fitting. (That's Nerdalicious)

  10. Dragon*Con Finally Cuts Financial Ties With Co-Founder and Accused Molester Ed Kramer

    Ed Kramer isn't exactly a great guy, even if he did co-found the convention.

    The organization behind Dragon*Con, the Atlanta-based multi-genre geek convention that will reach its 27th year when it's held at the end of this August, has announced that it has bought out the shares held by co-founder Edward Kramer, a man that has been facing trial for child molestation since 2000. Though Kramer has had no involvement with the convention's organization or planning since that time, he has continued to profit from his 34% ownership of the company's stock. After years of criticism of Kramer's continued association with the convention, the company has finally conceded to public opinion and forced him out.
