I’ve disappeared for two months. Let’s try to move past this fact.
Christmas is coming fast at me as usual, so I thought, why not do a condensed version of the 12 days of Christmas? Now, you’re thinking, whatever does she mean? It means nothing except you’ll get multiple posts in a day.
Let’s talk about my overly need to tape everything on my DVR. Yes, I am that type of person. So last night, I taped “Geek Love”
“Geek Love” is TLC’s newest show about geeky people looking for love because everyone is looking for love. Unless, you are anti-social.
It was very entertaining because 1) I am Geek 2) It was filmed at New York Comic Con. It also had a nice touch of intimacy with the people showing a little bit of their lives through their web-cameras. You had an Iron Man looking for love. You had two Robins looking for love. You even had a guy named Chewy who could make Chewbecca’s wookie sounds.
Now looking at a review at Entertainment Weekly, it looks like TLC is testing the waters for this show. I would love to see more of this show over “Toddlers and Tiaras”.
The other part of this post involves more Geek Knowledge. This morning I read a nicely done piece on Kotaku about how many video games are still only directed at guys. Let me tell you, there are a lot of girl gamers out there. I play occasionally, but I know there are some hard-core girl gamers out there.
The article discusses how especially in Batman: Arkham City, the girls are slutty, slutty and slutty. It’s disappointing that the game makers stoop to this level. Also, I still really want to play this game.
Here’s the EW article and the Kotaku article. Enjoy! Just click on the picture to get to the story.
