Let Your Geek Flag Fly

You see this trailer for the current season of Doctor Who? And this one? Can anybody spot the difference? Thanks to Shig for the link and to Stephen Willis for the laughs.

It's terrible to have too much time on your hands but there are many different ways of combatting the boredom. Me: booze, drugs and porn. Jay Maynard: Tron cosplay. Thanks to The Paranoid Mod for the link.

I'm into science fiction too but I'm also very sociable and will make somebody a lovely wife one day (using the spare parts from my robot girlfriend). So it's no value judgment on Jay or Stephen when I refer to them as geeks. Whatever issues Jay may or may not have are more to do with what he's not than the fact that he's a fan of a movie based on a single special effect from twenty years ago. Stephen's making videos with splitscreens and bloody overlays. I'd have loved to have had those toys when I was his age! I hope he makes it in the entertainment industry when he's older because he's entertained me already.

If it makes you happy then let your geek flag fly and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Especially the sportsfans.

Ah bless. At least he's not terrorising grannies. And his K9 looked a lot better than the real one.

Everyone's a geek. It's just that some interests, football or rock climbing maybe, are more socially acceptable than others. Have you ever talked to someone who's really into cycling? They're way more boring than any given scifi nerd...

Yikes! How about a "chubby geek in skin tight unitard" warning, Marcus?

I'm gonna go practice my braille now.

LOL! Pretty cool! This from someone who used to be in the Chess club and has turned her kids into Star Wars geeks as an excuse to buy the toys.

Ha! Though I'm not so geeky to change my name to Kirk like your friend Matt :)

The thing I can't work out is how Tron guy has a camel toe. Even if he hasn't used it much, it should still BE there...

Marcus, not every guy can be as well endowed as you are. Give him a break!

I'm relieved that I'm not the only one who noticed the camel toe.

Grunt: Who's Welsh?!

Mod: I'm trying to get as much Who out of my system in this post for the sake of readers who don't gi' a fu' so here's a link to the NEW tin dog design from The K-9 Adventures. Needless to say, it's as crap as the original in a more modern way.

Falentin: which country are you watching from?
