October 30-November 1: In what’s basically become tradition, both members of the Whorer cult will be getting into con shenanigans at 2015’s Geek Media Expo, appropriately scheduled to coincide with Halloween! This will be our 4th year attending and although we are not participating in any panels this time, we’re still participating as press. Follow our adventures on Twitter – #geekoween @thewhorer. Fem will be cosplaying as Bo from Lost Girl. Find us and say hi! Our recap episode will post November 9.
First, I want to thank everyone that came out for my Lynch’s DUNE: Autopsy of a Hollywood Disasterpiece presentation at GMX. One mistake I made was saying the re-themed Dune boardgame, Rex: Final Days of Empire, was set in the Warhammer 40k universe. It is set in Fantasy Flight Games own Twilight Imperium universe. If you noticed any other mistakes please leave them in the comments.
Second, I want to thank @jshawhan for retweeting
which set this all in motion.
And of course there have been changes since the day of the presentation because my brain is a swarm of wasps. Let’s go:
Baron Harkonnen – Meat Loaf
Yes. YES. I’m pretty sure he already did this at some Mitt Romney rallies last election cycle.

Next week we’ll be wrapping up both our experiences at Geek Media Expo and Fem’s experience at Geek Girl Con in a great big CONtober episode. Don’t miss it!
October’s a busy month for us this year and so we’re going to lay it all out for you:
October 11 & 12: Fem will be representing The Whorer Podcast at Geek Girl Con. Follow along on Twitter – #GGC14 @femfurry @thewhorer. If you’ll be here, make sure you check out “(Not So) Strange Appetites: Women and the Horror Fandom” with Ashlee of Graveyard Shift Sisters.
October 20: We’ll release our Halloween episode and discuss one of the most gruesome films Fem’s ever seen and one that’s undoubtedly influenced the creation of this very podcast – Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom.
October 24-26: Both Fem and Meredith will be at Nashville’s Geek Media Expo. Follow along on Twitter – #GMXv6 @thewhorer. If you’ll be here, come to our panels – “When Feminists Attack: Women and Horror Films” and “David Lynch’s Dune: Autopsy of a Hollywood Disasterpiece”
Expect a wrap-up episode of the 2 cons in early November. If you’ll be at either, let us know!
