Nerdpit - Weekly News #1

Lets get the bad news out of the way first, I'm sure you already know that the world of anime and Online Entertainment was in shock this week to learn of the passing of Monty Oum. Aged 33, Monty was the main mind involved in the Rooster Teeth production "RWBY" and the latter seasons of "Red vs Blue." Monty passed away on the 1st of February due to a severe allergic reaction following a routine operation. In lieu of flowers - his friends and family would rather fans use their time on the planet to create something beautiful.

"I believe that the human spirit is indomitable. If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate, and often your greater dreams is something you will not achieve within your own lifetime. The effort you put forth to anything transcends yourself, for there is no futility even in death.Can you match my resolve? If so then you will succeed” - Monty Oum, 1981 - 2015

Rest in Peace from all those editing, writing and reading Written in Black Lipstick.

Onto nerdy news and obviously we can't do a news update post without mentioning the Game of Thrones season 5 trailer, if you haven't seen it already you can watch it below. The show comes back on April the 13th and we're all really excited already!

Okay so amazing right? I'll not post any actual spoilers here cause I'm sure Craig will end up doing a Get Hyped post on it!

Okay so every Marvel fan has to obsess a little bit over the casts of the films or they're not a true fan, dems the rules! So when we saw that Chris Pratt and Chris Evans (two of the somehow endless supply of hot Chris' Marvel seem to have access to) had created a Super Bowl on Twitter of course we got a little excited, due to them supporting the opposing teams; the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots respectively. It was only right they try to show the other one up online a little so if you haven't seen Buzzfeeds summary of their fan-girl worthy tweets you can check it out here.

You can also see an amazing video of both of the Chris' photobombing some Super Bowl photos below, trust me it's worth your time I promise, if not to see Jimmy Fallon eat a sandwich that was down Chris Pratt's pants seconds beforehand!

In the music world there's been a few updates for tours/events. The Kerrang Tour's secret band announcement was finally revealed and it's safe to say a lot of people saw it coming. Joining the already packed line up is Young Guns. We're off to see the tour when it comes to Newcastle so keep your eyes out for a post soon afterwards.

This years Slam Dunk festival's line up was announced, seems like it's a mixed bag but I'm sure people will be able to find at least one band they're enjoy. Our personal picks are Lower than Atlantis and Reel Big Fish, they're still yet to announce a lot more bands yet though.

Hope you enjoyed our first ever news post!
