Ever feel like you're getting old? Yeah, us too. Nerdom has changed since 2012 when Dad's Garage first produced a?oeThe Wrath of Cona?? -- Marvel has taken over the big screen, fandoms are mainstream, and Dragon Con now has 80,000+ attendees. With today's streaming services, Twitch, and the popularity of superhero movies, nerd culture has gone mainstream, and Cons are no longer the niche events they once were. a?oeWrath of Con 2: Into Dorknessa?? is an original scripted play that looks into the life of nerds dealing with their fandoms becoming the mainstream culture of America and what happens when they feel disconnected from the things they once loved.

The brilliant comedian Tina Fey has brought her clique of nasty teenage girls to town to open the First National Tour of her Broadway hit musical, MEAN GIRLS. After the success of the film version, Fey and her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, have added music to the story of teenage angst and meanness. The genre has been well populated over the years, with growing up and adolescent relationships proving to be great fodder for shows like GREASE, BYE, BYE, BIRDIE,  HAIRSPRAY, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL and most recently, THE PROM.

There are signs that the grandaddy of role-playing games, Dungeons & Dragons, is making a comeback, even among the kind of kids who'd usually be glued to their computer games.

Swedish duo Galantis welcomes viewers to step into a remarkable fantasy world where bodies are transformed into skeleton form in the new official music video for their single “Bones” featuring OneRepublic. Video director Spencer Hord of AfterWeDead says, “This project was a rare occasion where our amazing team of animators, editors, and production nerds (Joe Cella // Pix3lface // Vince McKelvie // Sam Newell // Andrew Henry // Joey Bryars // Brian Beckwith) saw the album artwork and knew the concept straight away.” On his interpretation of Bones Park Hord says, “We wanted to do something conceptually simple, but visually challenging. The goal was to create a literal representation of “Bones” with 3D animation, and merge these CG assets with a moody amusement park environment to create a surreal mixed-reality narrative. We shot the live action plates at Castle Park in Riverside - a small theme park in Southern California I grew up attending for various grade-school birthday parties. The location was much better than I remembered, and the production process became a nostalgic experience to say the least.”
