My name's Charlotte,
and I'm emailing about Festival of the Spoken Nerd, the trio of
insatiably sci-curious comedians coming to a theatre near you.
The Spoken Nerds are travelling across the UK
from January 2014 with their all-new show full of wit and wonder: Full Frontal Nerdity. With rave reviews
from nerds and non-nerds alike, it's a fantastic night of entertainment and
we're hoping to spread the word far and wide.
closest dates to you are: 6 February at Komedia, Bath and 16 February
at Colston Hall, Bristol.
We'd love the venue to be filled with people
who appreciate the unique mixture of comedy, science and nerdiness, and we hope
you'll join us too. Full details are below, do feel free to cut, paste or
forward this email to students, colleagues, friends and family.
There's a full tour schedule with tickets links and facebook events here,
and the usual press release blurb below to make it easy to pass on to friends
and colleagues. Our good friend Colin Wright has even made a postcode
checker so you can find your nearest venue - in full glorious HTML!
Please note that the show is only suitable
for ages 15+ as it contains some strong language and spreadsheets.
Thanks very much!

At the start of the new live-action Lupin III film, Fujiko, seeing one of her fellow thieves avoid a pressure-sensitive museum floor by using a rocket pack, utters, â€śYou've got to be jokingâ€ťâ€”which is more than a little apt as it was exactly what I kept saying again and again over the next two hours and fifteen minutes.
Remember the days when you would go to an arcade, put a quarter into the machine of your favorite fighting game, and wait for a challenger to walk up, put in his own coin and fight you? So it goes with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
Silicon Studio from Japan is, as you might recall, known for working on the BravelyDefault series, and for their rather incredible next-gen engine, which they demoed with a short clip back in April. Now, they're back, with their tech looking better than ever.
