Early Adopters

Had an interesting tiny conversation with someone on Twitter the other day (I say tiny like it could be anything but tiny. It is Twitter after all). What sparked my interest was someone poking fun at early adopters of the iPad now that a new iPad is on the horizon. It really got me thinking […]

Geek Mythology = Comics

About 23 years ago I wrote a comic script in which I killed Batman. It was the first in a storyline in which Dick Grayson (Robin) would eventually assume the mantle of Batman. I, of course, did not plan to keep Bruce Wayne dead very long. Just long enough to make it interesting. I was […]

Geek Girls Are Beautiful

> This is probably not the night to be writing this. I have been operating on about 3 hours sleep and am currently loaded on a nice cocktail of Nyquil and Ice Coffee (the battle in my body for alertness or sleepiness is quite entertaining). There seems to be a ridiculous amount of controversy swirling […]

Geeks Like Me

I admit it I am a sucker for nice round numbers (except for anything with 7. As a seventh son I am partial to 7). Today is blog post number 600. Even more crazy is this is the 530th day in a row I have written a blog. I am not going to lie, I […]

Lord Jobs Gets Slap Happy!

Okay, I admit that I enjoy poking Apple with a stick. I find it ironic because I own a WHOLE bunch of Apple products. I like to think I do it because I care. I have been a fan of Apple for a very long time. Well, before their current success. I was buying Apple […]

We geeks take our entertainment seriously. If you are going to mess around with something we love then be prepared for the inevitable backlash. If you are going to reach out and try to appeal to the Kingdom of Geek than don’t pander. Make it count, treat us with respect, and don’t forget how freaking […]

My Comic Book Life

Went into a comic book store today and spent way too much money. Comic book stores have that effect on me. If I had a religion growing up it was comics and I liked nothing better than worshiping at my favorite shrine, the comic book store. The first few years of buying comics were dominated […]

Geek Card

The iPhone 4 came out today and not surprisingly the rotation of the world tilted slightly north under the weight of all the Apple geeks lining up outside stores. You know what I don’t get? Lining up outside of stores. I love technology and despite my recent blasts on Apple, I love Apple gadgets. I […]

Privacy Pirates

So Apple is at it again. Proving to us everyday no matter how cool they like to make the world think they are, in the end they are just another big company. They might care a tiny bit more about their reputation and their users but not much. The bottom line is still money. How […]

Lord Jobs Is Cooler Than You

About every six months Apple is required to let Lord Jobs prance about on the stage and tell us he is cooler than us (by required I mean if they don’t he begins smiting his board of trustees until they give in). They disguise this “I am cooler than you and I am going to […]
