The Rusty Gear Fan Convention

The Rusty Gear is a brand new fan-run conference set to kick off in late June of next year. The focus is on two Adult Swim series, The Venture Bros. and Metalocalypse. It's an interesting and perhaps specific idea for a convention, but if you find yourself around Natick, MA next year (or have the means to get there) you could potentially be a presenter at it. The conference is entirely fan-run and fan-dedicated:

We are currently welcoming programming proposals. We would like to see them run their own discussion panels, how-to-workshops, performances, really just about anything they can think of, to make this a truly fan-centered conference. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2012.

For more information about The Rusty Gear 2012, you can contact me directly at therustygear2012@gmail.com or visit our website at: www.therustygear.org

How is Jackson's dog? How many suits does Doc own? What is their snack food of choice? All this and more in a very special Mantis-Eye podcast with Jackson & Doc answering your questions. Well, maybe not your question specifically, but they answered questions that people sent me. Enjoy!

For those of you who are around (or can get to) the Boston area this weekend you may want to consider Projektfest'11 at The Middle East in Cambridge tomorrow night.

Also performing will be Doc's long-time nemesis Voltaire, Black Tape For A Blue Girl and two unsigned supporting acts, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling and Sugar Snow. You must be eighteen to get in and the doors open at 7pm, tickets (at the door) are $25. Have fun!

Welcome To The New Mantis-Eye Experiment!

As you may be able to tell the site has gone through a few changes. This is the latest and what I hope is the greatest version of The Mantis-Eye Experiment. The goal was to make the site better organized and a little easier to navigate and also to find a home for the various pieces of content that I've compiled over the last seven years. One of the most major changes you may notice is that you can now sign up for an account which will allow you a couple of perks such as being able to rate comments and earn achievements. Also for all sorts of general discussion (Venture Bros. related or otherwise) stop by the community section and say hi. As always, you don't need an account to post comments, but having one certainly makes you more awesome! Feel free to comment with your thoughts on the changes and anything else on your mind. Thanks guys!

Ask Jackson & Doc Videos

After much delay I finally got off my butt and edited some of the Q&A I did with Jackson and Doc back around NYCC. These two clips are the beginning and end of the full interview (the video for the middle section is not really usable) and are chock full of info about the show and some info about nothing at all. I will have an audio-only version of the full thing up sometime in the near future. Until then enjoy some shaky cam!

Newsarama NYCC Jackson & Doc Interview: Halloween Special?

Also with a Venture Bros. and NYCC related video interview out today, Newsarama has put up the complete, uncut version of their interview with Jackson and Doc conducted at NYCC. As with many interviews from NYCC they don't have a huge amount of Venture Bros. news to talk about (because they are currently making it) but there's plenty of Jackson and Doc and 'verbal jazz'. You heard me. However one thing they did mention was word of a possible Halloween special for 2012, so keep on the lookout for that. Enjoy!

All The NYCC 2011 Coverage

All the planned NYCC coverage is up in the Mantis-Eye at NYCC 2011 section. That includes not only the signings writeup and the press hour writeup that I already posted but a panel writeup and a small offering of cosplay photos. The Ask Jackson & Doc interview will be up eventually as well, but I need to do a ton of editing for that so there will be a bit of a delay.
