Advance Notice. Ghostbusters, Goonies, and Gremlins.

So it's finally become cool to totally nerd out in the open. With the comic-based "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," the popularity of the Twilight, True Blood, and other vampire series, it's totally OK to get your nerd on in public.

And just in time, a pop art exhibit is scheduled to open at Gallery 1988 devoted to the 1980s classics Goonies, Ghostbusters, and Gremlins. I don't know about Gremlins, they were kind of scary, but the Goonies and Ghostbusters are definitely 1980s favorites of mine and the new exhibit sounds like a fun.

Among those showing their stuff at Gallery 1988 are geek art designer Tom Whalen and illustrator Dave Perillo.

The 3G Show opens at Gallery 1988 Sept. 3 from 7-10 p.m. Gallery 1988 is located at 7020 Melrose Ave.
