I know that at least some of you have been wondering this, so for those who were, Nerdcore for Life(NC4L), the documentary about Nerdcore Hip-hop, is going to be shown during PAX. Here's a link to a reputable source:

http://www.hipsterplease.com/2008/07/all-about-nc4l.html

Or if you want text...

"While this year’s Penny Arcade Expo might not include a performance by mc chris, I’ve just been informed that it will feature a screening of the Nerdcore For Life documentary. Congrats to Dan Lamoureux and all the artists involved – many of whom will be in attendance – for pulling off such a coup! The showing will be at 10:00 PM on Saturday, August 30th at the Walrus Theater. PAX attendees are encouraged to attend and rock the fuck out."

I can say that I've already seem the film, and its awesome. I was actually at the San Francisco showing mentioned in that post, and hung out a bit with Dan. I really hope you guys pack the shit out of that theatre.

    Presuming that all the fuck won't have already been rocked out, count me in.

    I'm no fan of the MC's but I'll still check it out, provided there isn't a concert going on at the time.

    No, that would be Nerdcore Rising. Nerdcore for life is more about the history of the genre, or at least the beginnings, leading up until about 2007. It covers most of the first and second generation.

    For those of you Optimus Rhyme fans, I know Dan's crew filmed them in studio when they were mixing Indie Rockers, and in a few other events. So hopefully there is some good Rhyme footage within.

    The Movies are shown during the concerts for those who may not want to go, or didnt get a wristband into the concerts.

    Well, I suppose that's a nice alternative for those who miss out on the privileges of a wristband, but unfortunate for those forced to make a tough decision -- but either is better than not getting it at all.

    I don't really remember a PAX concert where they have ever been AT capacity and only let in people with wristbands... Every year I think "This is going to be the year," and every year there is tons of room :)

    I'm curious where the main theater will be this year since the exhibitor hall took over the old one.

    Good question, I'd also be curious (although would somewhat understand if you can't tell us yet). I'm guessing the downstairs Exhibition Halls where the HUEG registration line was last year, and the Sakura Con/Comic Con exhibition halls usually are?

    I'm pretty sure it's where the lines for the main theater were staged last year on the fourth floor.

    Nerdcore For Life was just reviewed on Wired.com today. The story even plugs the PAX screening.

    Oh yea, That's a nice big room and I don't remember it being used for anything else last year. If it was, I know I didn't go to those events.

    Nope, it was just used for the line last year. I think there's another theater of equal size next to it (unless the map on the WSCTC's website is just indicating that the room can be split in half). If that's the case, that will probably be used for line staging this year, if not for something else entirely.

    Anybody heard of any other movies that are showing at PAX this year?

    Did they show the Wizard again last year? If they show it again this year they should just break down and fly Kevin Arnold in to introduce the movie....his schedule is probably pretty open these days.
