Just last week, Los Angeles became the ‘place to be’ for nerds, techies, video game geeks, internet lunatics and geekettes the world over.
Precisely why, myself, CARDIO WORLD producer/co-host Todd Roy and fitPOP writer/photographer Paul Nyhart were keen to make an appearance (yes, I said ‘keen.’ My Warcraft guild is based in New Zealand, and???).
For those of you who don’t know – E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, is an annual trade fair for the computer and video games industry presented by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). It is used by many video game publishers and accessory manufacturers to show off their upcoming games and game-related merchandise.widely considered to be the ultimate expo in the video game industry and major video game critics routinely document the event. Major video game critics often have a “best of E3″ award session, and only E3 consistently features such awards. Wiki-wtf rant over.

You can see the whole interview HERE.
Energy on set! Becky is crazy hyper like me so between the two of us we scared half of the people in the tent. Not only did I talk about how and why The Booty Bible came to be…but I also explained precisely why, of all SIX of my toons, I love my Death Knight when I play WOW the most (a close second would have to be my warr).
….cannot forget to mention a bevy of GAWJUS bikini-clad tent girls that I had to drag Paul Ny away from. I suppose that’s what I get for adopting single MEN as my producer/writers. On an odd note, Todd Roy was unusually disinterested in the bikini-clad-dom? Scary but true. Don’t know this guy.
Sometimes – things are better off NOT explained…Paul is looking a liiiiittle too HAPPY. Get any numbers, P???
Side note: Producer Athena Stamos (she’s the ukulele player) mentioned that I should cosplay May Day from the James Bond franchise. Do any of you remember Grace Jones in that role?
Brad Hansen from Crave and I tried it…did we pull it off? I just need the high-top fade WIG, maybe a little tanning booth and I am good to go.
Just in case you weren’t sure if this was a fitness convention or a gamer convention…
Me so happy….
They had to PRY me out of that thing…I refused to get out of it. #ALIENSRAWK
Here’s a better shot of the thing – just what the heck…
Todd and I giving this one a run for her money…and yes, I am rocking wet-look overalls. I figure, leggings are as close to ‘everyday superhero wear’ as I can get without getting arrested for IE (indecent exposure).
Yay – the move your a&& games! ME and the Dance Central dancers! YES, I AM IN 4 inch HEELS. Some of you were asking had I run into the Lollipop Guild…
Second shot is me about to get fragged. And YES, Nyhart is taller than me when my heels are off :0/
DEFINITELY makes you sweat. Fitness peeps – check out the Wii dance games if the idea of sitting and clicking doesn’t do it for you…
Todd didn’t get the memo.
Looks like I’m about to rob the joint….and Todd’s usual face.
1) With the powers-that-be at Warner Brothers Interactive – PR mistress of gaming Remi Sklar and co…2) The amazing SONY peeps, Matt Higby and Taina Rodriguez who made us feel like VIPs at E3
For all of you fitPOP dudes out there…peep the E3 booth hottie Gallery
Todd and I lost track of Paul a few times that day. I scanned the E3 footage…can’t fool a fool-er, Paul Ny.
The first girl in the “Come Play” t-shirt showed me a video game that was about shopping and filling your closet with clothes. Funny: I had high score for the day on my first try. Dur hur hur.
Next stop: PDP and the powers-that-be at (Performance Designed Products)! Amazing electronics and headphones for gaming (and maybe for workouts?? We shall see…) – annnnnd some more ladies for Paulie..;)
Lastly but not leastly – we caught up with Fran Mirabella of IGN (International Gaming Network):
Sigh. So much WIN in one day…
I recommend that even if you aren’t into video games or technology or aliens (I died a little inside just saying that) – you should make it a point to get over to E3 next year. The future in one hot jam stop.
Wait til next year…might have to be in FULL COSPLAY.
Vile and disturbing - or useful controversy? Feminist pride or get THEE F%$%$ away from me?
I like art...but only the kind that makes you want to roll up into a ball and crawl down your own throat so you can throw yourself back up and…
We always knew Alicia Marie was of Themyscira....
I'm coming for you Halle.
