PROGRAMMING ANNOUNCEMENT: WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
Experience the heat of battle, the thrill of victory, and the sting of a zillion foam darts as we deliver a wallop to Toronto's core and SMASH the record for the biggest Nerf Battle in human history! Armed with lightsabers, space blasters, and the sweetest costumes this side of the galaxy, hundreds of Jedi and Sith, storm troopers and rebel fighters, spunky droids and alien babes will descend on the JCCC for a no-holds-barred blaster battle royale- complete with live music, Star Wars burlesque, and geeky giveaways!
Grab your friends, your gear, and your biggest toy gun, and join us at Atomic Lollipop this August 3rd for an intergalactic shoot-em-up of epic proportions! The current record stands at just 486 combatants, so enlist with the Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance, and snipe, smash, and slash your way into the Guinness World Record books!

Any APOPpers tuning in tonight for Winter Time with Jon and Ghost? Adventure Time meets GoT in this mashup by Daisy Edwards, with new and improved theme lyrics from Redditor Mufufu:
Come on, grab your brothers
We'll go fight all the wights and Others
With Ghost the wolf
and Jon the bastard
the dire cold, it smothers
Special Guest Announcement!
By the old gods and the new, we call on you to join us this August in the Great Hall of House Lollipop as Westeros’ #1 DJ takes the stage! Kristian Nairn, aka HODOR from HBO’s Game of Thrones, is coming to Atomic Lollipop! In addition to delighting fans in his role as the lovable giant, this man of many talents is a distinguished UK DJ and so will be playing LIVE AT APOP 2013!
When he isn’t carrying Bran or dropping beats, this hardcore geek-at-heart can be found on World of Warcraft or producing Treasure Trapped, a documentary on the LARP community! Now, for the first time ever, he’s coming to Canada to geek out with YOU!
Summer is Coming!
SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT!
POWERGLOVE, legendary warriors of geek rock, are descending on Atomic Lollipop for a mind-blowing, face-melting musical rampage!
A perfect storm of nerdy goodness and 90s nostalgia, POWERGLOVE offers up a blitzkrieg of Nintendo anthems and Saturday morning melodies gone metal!
9/10 scientists agree you haven't really lived until you've moshed to GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL, so strap on your nostalgia goggles (and protective padding), and prepare for an after-dark musical throwback to the days of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, X-Men, Mega Man, and more!
SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT!
If you were a kid in the 90's, YTV's epic after-school game show "UH OH!" acquainted you with sliming, speed rounds, age-inappropriate bondage (we're looking at you, Punisher!), and the best-dressed host this side of daytime television: WINK YAHOO!
UH-OH! was an after-school experience shared by millions, and we're pleased to announce that Wink Yahoo (aka Scott Yaphe), will be appearing live at Atomic Lollipop 2013! So grab a friend, strap your goggles on, and join us for a slime-covered, trivia-filled, 90's nostalgia blast!
