This is a passion project: a celebration of opinionated geekery.
Yeah, we’re be a “geek blog” or an “entertainment website” that’s all about our geeky interests – frankly, anything that catches our attention and makes us go, “Whoa, that’s cool!” Ultimately, our thing is to be a playground for opinionated geeks to come together and wax lyrical about their particular flavor of geekery.
Or, more eloquently put:
“Geekdom is a nation with open borders. There are many affiliations and many doors into it. There are lit geeks, media geeks, comics geeks, anime and manga geeks. There are LARPers, cosplayers, furries, filkers, crafters, gamers and tabletoppers. There are goths and horror geeks and steampunkers and academics. There are nerd rockers and writers and artists and actors and fans. Some people love only one thing. Some people flit between fandoms. Some people are positively poly in their geek enthusiasms. Some people have been in geekdom since before they knew they were geeks. Some people are n00bs, trying out an aspect of geekdom to see if it fits. If it does, great. If it doesn’t then at least they tried it.
Many people believe geekdom is defined by a love of a thing, but I think — and my experience of geekdom bears on this thinking — that the true sign of a geek is a delight in sharing a thing. It’s the major difference between a geek and a hipster, you know: When a hipster sees someone else grooving on the thing they love, their reaction is to say “Oh, crap, now the wrong people like the thing I love.” When a geek sees someone else grooving on the thing they love, their reaction is to say “ZOMG YOU LOVE WHAT I LOVE COME WITH ME AND LET US LOVE IT TOGETHER.”
Any jerk can love a thing. It’s the sharing that makes geekdom awesome.”
– John Scalzi, Who Gets To Be a Geek? Anyone Who Wants to Be
Indeed, “ZOMG YOU LOVE WHAT I LOVE COME WITH ME AND LET US LOVE IT TOGETHER.”
Who’s Behind This Nonsense?
We are a bunch of opinionated purveyors and curators of geekery, who haven’t gotten round to writing down our bios.
