I think we can all agree that when it comes to things geeklike and nerdjacent (it's a word) technology is a big part of our how and why. Just marvel at the number of unboxing videos out there whenever Apple has a new update on anything. So I've been sort... Continue reading

Hello GeekWeek! It is I, Shax, set free on a daypass from the Prison Of Writing Romantic Comedies That Don't Suck to talk to you about something very very important. Pancake Mountain.

Pajama-clad students, faculty and alumni packed Odle Arena on Friday night for Taylor's home game against Ohio State-Marion. They remained dead silent until guard Casey Coons scored Taylor's 10th point at the free-throw line and then they erupted in confetti-filled mayhem for five straight minutes, as though the tiny NAIA...

Says the amazing Tavi: Of course, it won't be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be. For one, you can't try to recreate something that good. For another, while I can read old issues of Sassy and relate, the world... Continue reading

Oh No They Didn't points out that this X-Men issue has a pervy photographer named Barry Richardmans get his ass kicked. A nice jab at Terry Richardson and his infamous treatment of models. Having met Terry a few times I think the museum stuff is a little bit of a... Continue reading

directed by the always incredible Scott Coffey Says Coffey Wolf Parade’s Expo 86 [SubPop 2010] has been the soundtrack of the summer of 2010 for me. When I first heard Yulia my head was flooded with images. The song is totally cinematic and has an urgent, longing drive that I... Continue reading

Things happen, GeekWeek. You get a job, it takes you to Paris, you meet a famous call-girl, she falls in love with your husband and sends you home with a penis teapot. The husband has PTSD. That doesn't mean I love you any less. And stuff happened while I was... Continue reading

LeBron's will come and go, but Pekar was Cleveland thru and thru. Everyone at GeekWeek has the Pekar family, especially his wife Joyce, in our thoughts today. I can't begin to describe how important Pekar was to me as an Ohioan and an artist so I'm not going to. I'm... Continue reading

Tim, you have to see it. You know that feeling of dread that you felt when you read the guy SIGNED UP to be eaten? It's filled with that and oh so much more. We need to get this movie to the people. So they can see the INSANITY!
GRIMM LOVE has been bubbling up in various festivals for a year or so, and if you're one of the lucky few who have seen it you know how great and frightening and intense a movie it is. So when I heard Fangoria was giving it a shot at a... Continue reading

High school is tough on boys. Their bodies rebel, their hormones go crazy, girls are in a constant battle over skirt length and how exactly they can drive a young man insane. It is enough to make a guy feel like an alien. In Larry Doyle's brilliant and sick-funny coming... Continue reading

OK Go keeps bringing the hits with their music videos. I like it for a lot of reasons, only one of which is that the video was shot in Echo Park. It's live action stop motion, and completely adorable. Like the band. Continue reading
