I'm a geek girl.
Case in point, I was thinking about all the things I wanted to blog about today, and lo and behold, they all held a common theme: geekery.
So enjoy, and don't forget to hug your favorite neighborhood geek, because he or she is probably awesome and can most likely help you fix your computer. And now you have someone else who will watch the Big Bang Theory with you!! Or, you know, Battlestar Galactica. Or Doctor Who. Or Shark Week on the Discovery Channel... oh, Discovery Channel...how I miss you...
Anyways. Onwards and upwards!
I just bought this t-shirt on shirt.woot.com, which is like regular Woot.com, only for t-shirts of a geeky nature. Shirt.woot is AWESOME. And my t-shirt? Freakin' RAD! Who doesn't love dinosaurs?!
(Also, if you don't know the joy that is woot.com or wine.woot.com - super awesome, one of a kind finds that are only up for one day, until they sell out. Woot indeed!)
Okay. Next up. Comic-Con.
I can't go, as I'm in the final stretch of house-sitting for friends, but many of my friends are going. And one friend in particular, who happens to be the awesome boyfriend of my amazing friend Lira, is going to be at Comic-Con... signing autographs, meeting the press, and, you know, giving panel discussions. With STAN LEE.
Oh, I'm sorry, did I just spray nerd all over your wall? It's because I exploded in excitement.
Basically, Stan Lee is doing a new project called Time Jumper. It premieres at Comic-Con, then goes online for everyone to enjoy. My friend Anthony did all the incredible art for it. And he is so amazingly talented. Check out this picture -- he CREATED this. On his computer. Damn. Doesn't it look like a photograph, slightly melted?
Also, yesterday was DVD release day. And guess what got released? Robot Chicken's second Star Wars special. And if you don't know Robot Chicken, or Star Wars for that matter...wait, if you don't know Star Wars, don't tell me. I've already cried once today watching that "Free Hugs" video on Miss Anne's blog. If you don't know Robot Chicken, get thee to an amazon.com or hulu.com and watch, for the love of all that is geeky!
Finally, what I've been waiting for, for months. The Beatles: Rock Band comes out Sept. 9th, 2009 (same day as this movie, which I've also been waiting for months to see) and they just released the set list for 25 of the 45 songs. Go check out the songs here -- I am so excited to sing some of them :)
Okay. Deep breath. I'm done now. You can stop being overwhelmed.
