“Geek & Gamer Girls” Song Proves Geek is Chic

The very attractive girls from Team Unicorn collaborated together to make a song with music video on just how acceptable it’s become to be a geek and a gamer these days. “Geek & Gamer Girls” (a parody of Katy Parry’s “California Girls”) stars the 4 lovely ladies as well as some generous face time from Seth Green, as well as cameo appearances by Katee “Lady Starbuck” Sackoff and the comic book master himself, Stan Lee!

Konami Code. Han Shot First. How many geek references can you find?

Gamers VS. Otaku – How to Tell

With PAX East having come and gone from gracing Boston for the first time, and Anime Boston (the largest anime convention on the east coast under Otakon) this easter weekend, I couldn’t help but marvel at the sheer geekism that the Bay State has been over-saturated with of late. However, it also gave me a bit of perspective on how sheer the difference is between gamer geeks and anime geeks. Geeks are geeks, and therefore share base common ground, right? Surely we all know that the different sub-genres of geek culture are vast and varied, but just what separates these two groups in particular? Well, just based on observation, I’ve come up with a quick guide on how normal people might tell the difference and therefore separate gamers from their cartoon-loving brethren.

Powet Alphabet: J is for JJ, Joss, and Judd

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

thejs

What is this composite, amalgamated entity? If you’re a fan of anything Science Fiction, Science Fantasy, or generally geek, you’ve seen movies and/or TV shows by at least one of these three gentlemen — if not all three — even if you don’t know their names. Of the many things they have in common, the most obvious (and least important) is that all of their names start with “J”. I frequently can’t think of one without thinking of the other two. Together they are like some triune entity, the three faces of a Geek (not “Greek”) god.

Let’s explore their credentials together.

Powet Alphabet: O is for Obscurity

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

This column poses the question, “What makes us geeks?” To that, I say obscurity. As geeks we thrive in the obscure. Be it obscure objects, information or experiences involving our niche interests, we Obsess Over Obscurity.

The Dirge of Scans_Daily

So this is going to be a little late to the table in terms of what’s already been discussed amongst online comic bloggers and enthusiasts, but everyone can always use another point-of-view, right?

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with online community known as Scans_Daily, it was a Livejournal-based grouping of comic fans who would post snippets of a wide-variety of comics, manga, and graphic novel scans and would generate vast amounts of comments and discussions. The largest rule was that no more than half an issue of a comic could be posted for the sake of legality, and this would usually prompt enough interest for people to go find additional scans of their own volition or to simply go buy a full issue of the comic itself. In time, the community grew, and what originated as a slash-focused scan-sharing niche became a bustling society of geeks sharing common interest amongst comics and the like. Even the likes of Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis and Gail Simone kept tabs on the place.

Notice I said “Was“.

However that’s all stuff that you could read in any retrospective article on a news site. What exactly was noteworthy about the year 2008 for the average to over-average geek like you and I? Here, we’ll take a look about the good, the bad, and the absolutely insane of this past year.
