I Want My Nerd HQ 2014

Alright, tumblr! Here we go!

PLEASE read this even though it’s a novel.

Zachary Levi and some friends started The Nerd Machine a few years ago to give nerds and the usually maligned and perhaps unsocial masses of the world a place online where they could feel safe and welcomed, a haven free of bullies and general meanness. A place where they could come together to talk about the things they’re passionate about, from movies and video games to gardening and knitting. Anything. Everything. We became a family that spanned the entire globe.

In 2011, the Nerd Machine brought Nerd HQ to San Diego Comic Con. That tradition has continued each year. It’s a place where EVERYONE is welcome. There’s no entrance fee to get into the building. And they provide you with small, intimate panels with celebrities for $20 a ticket. Every cent of that money goes to Operation Smile.

Over the years, Nerd HQ has grown a little, raised over $400,000 for Operation Smile, and MORE people want access to its brilliance. And that means more lives will be changed—not just the lives of the lucky individuals who get to be there and attend panels, but the lives of the children who benefit from the beautiful work done by Operation Smile.

This year is going to be different. Bigger and better. But Zac, the Nerd Machine, and those of us who are passionate about this cause, need help making it so.

At its heart, Nerd HQ is about charity. And it’s about taking the I-Guess-If-I-HAVE-to element out of donating to a cause. Yes, it’s a massive nerd party. But since I first started going, every nerd I’ve met is passionate about Nerd HQ and equally passionate about Operation Smile. Even if you can’t be there, EVERY SINGLE PANEL will be live streamed on the Nerd HQ youtube channel FOR FREE. And this year, they’re even fielding questions from the internet to ask the celebrities in the panel. You’ll get free, interactive access to intimate panels with some of the most important people in the business. Let me tell you, these panels are the best panels you’ll EVER see. During his panel at NerdHQ13, Nathan Fillion paid for one girl’s entire two days’ worth of meals when she revealed she had her backpack stolen. And Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman crashed the Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden panel. These panels are up on the Nerd Machine youtube page right now for you to watch for free if you want examples. If you donate to this year’s Nerd HQ fund, everyone benefits, even you.

Please click that link. Even if you just want to learn more about Operation Smile, Nerd HQ, and/or Nerd Machine without donating. Please watch the video. You’ll see how incredibly massive Zac Levi’s heart is, and everyone affiliated with Nerd Machine.

Thanks everyone!!! From the bottom of my nerd heart!

You are all


This is probably one of my favourite panels of this years comic con

SDCC 2015 Off-Site: NERD HQ’s Conversations For A Cause panel details released

SDCC 2015 Off-Site:@thenerdmachine NERD HQ’s Conversations For A Cause panel details released

NERD HQ, the rabidly popular off-site event set up by actor Zachary Levi that takes place during the duration of San Diego +Comic-Con International, has released the full guest line-up for this years Conversations For A Cause – and there’s a whole host of Brits involved.

From those that have betrayed us by leaving for La-La Land – HAYLEY ATWELL, HANNAH WARE and MICHELLE GOMEZ – to those who will be visiting San Diego temporarily for SDCC duties – JENNA COLEMAN, STEVEN MOFFAT and RUPERT GRAVES – the collection of names is incredible strong for this years panels.

The intimate panels – held in close quarter with seating capacity for only 200 people at the new venue for the event, the New Children’s Museum – are held to raise money for Levi’s chosen charity, +Operation Smile, and traditionally involve some of Levi’s closest friends and industry contacts, as well as some very special guests.

The tickets are due to go on sale at 2pm on Thursday 2nd July (6am PT – this is good news, that’s pretty early for the ‘Mercians so we’ll have the advantage of being more awake!) and the site will release four panels every fifteen minutes. If they think this method is going to be enough to stem the tide of tens of thousands descending on the site, they’re in for one hell of a shock.

Great Interview with Collider!

Zachary Levi is undoubtedly one of the busiest actor/producers in Hollywood right now. He’s hosting the pop trivia game show Geeks who Drink for Syfy, premiering on July 16th, he’s a part of the Heroes Reborn mini-series for NBC, debuting on September 24th, he’ll be doing a guest arc on Eva Longoria’s new comedy Hot and Bothered, and he’ll be returning to voice Flynn for the Tangled TV series on the Disney Channel in 2017. If all of that isn’t enough, he’s bringing NerdHQ back to San Diego, with a really cool assortment of celebrity panels and fun activities that will be held at the New Children’s Museum during Comic-Con, from July 9 – 12. And if you can’t make the trek to be there in person, never fear, as you can stream all of the “Conversations for a Cause” at and
