The Hottest Geek Guys of Winter [GALLERY]

Late last year I posted my Top Geek Gals of 2011. I wanted to shine a spotlight on the wonderful ladies that fly the geek flag proudly, doing what they can to make the world just a bit geekier. But then a debate broke out on the post over whether one could be ‘sexy’ and… Continue reading ‘The Hottest Geek Guys of Winter [GALLERY]‘



Come join The Geek and Nerd Girl for their first NERD YEAR’S EVE Party!

The last time Jess Godwin and I got together, we talked about how cool it would be to have a New Year’s Eve party for nerds and geeks like ourselves.

The 12 Days of Christmas for Geeks (Part Three)

It’s the home stretch folks! When I first started my 12 Days of Christmas For Geeks Gift Guide, I didn’t think it would be so difficult to come up with nerdy alternatives for the traditional items in the original song. Sure, I would LOVE for someone to buy me “5 golden lightsabers”, but those suckers… Continue reading ‘The 12 Days of Christmas for Geeks (Part Three)’

Anyway, as… Continue reading ‘The 12 Days of Christmas for Geeks (Part Two)’

“FANBOYS” screenwriter Ernest Cline turns novelist with “READY PLAYER ONE”

When he first made his mark on pop culture, Ernest Cline did so as the screenwriter for the cult-classic film “FANBOYS.” The movie told the story of a group of friends who wanted to break into the fabled Skywalker Ranch to get their terminally-ill friend a look at a print of the then-yet-unreleased Episode One:… Continue reading ‘“FANBOYS” screenwriter Ernest Cline turns novelist with “READY PLAYER ONE”’
