Hey, Geeks. Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. The Nightmare Before Christmas has steadily moved its way out of Halloween/Christmas “cult classic” status and into an annual Halloween/Christmas tradition for millions of people. But when you really look at the film you have to wonder why people have obsessed over this so long. Is it the highly-marketable characters and art style? It must be. Romantic Goths need something to decorate their room with, after all. But honestly, that’s not enough. Or at least it shouldn’t be. Let’s talk about why TheRead More →

It’s that time of year where many people find themselves shopping outside their comfort zones in order to get the perfect (or at least acceptable) gift for that one nerdy friend. Whether it’s a coworker you got assigned for Secret Santa, a grandchild who won’t stop talking about… something (you’re not sure what), or one of your best friends that’s just really into a different fandom, nerds are everywhere. And now you have to figure out exactly what they want. Don’t worry. It’s not as scary as it seems. Let’s talk about the different types of fandoms, and the DOs and DON’Ts of each. Fandom: TV SHOWS/MOVIES You know what?Read More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. It’s Thanksgiving! Which is one of those things that everyone claims to love– until they’re actually at the table and realize that this is a variation of Hell that we subject ourselves to each year. On purpose. And it seems to be getting worse. Let’s talk about why. Chances Are You Still Feel Like You’re at the Kid’s Table Okay. So there might not actually be a kid’s table for your family at Thanksgiving this year. But you remember the one I’m talking about. TheRead More →

Mid-November: depending on your location, the temperature’s dropping, retail stores are decorating for the holidays, and coffee drinkers are riding out the Gulf. And on a small island off the coast of Canada, a group of comedians is playing a video game for charity. Yes, friends and enemies, it’s once again time for Desert Bus for Hope. This annual fundraiser, run by the fine folks at LoadingReadyRun, has gained a huge following over its 12-year run. For a solid week, the LRR team and friends sit down to play the world’s worst video game: Desert Bus. A real-time simulated drive from Tuscon, AZ to Las Vegas,Read More →

If you’re here reading this, you know who Stan Lee is, you know what he created, and you know why the geek world mourns this week.  You can find lists of his greatest achievements and his influence on the comics industry in a billion different places, but I’m not here to do that.  I choose to remember my hero Stan Lee through the lessons he taught me.  Every character he touched and created influenced all of us who read his work.  We were lucky to have a storyteller, worldbuilder, and teacher like Stan Lee in our lives. Family Is Important Whether your family is theRead More →

Greetings my freaks and geeks, my nefarious nerdlings! It’s that time of year again: spooks and specters and unnecessarily sexy work uniforms will soon be around every corner. So, why not celebrate that a little bit? If you weren’t here last year, we released a special Halloween reading of Lovecraft’s “The Outsider”, and it was so fun the first time, why not go again? This year, as selected by your ambassadors, The Geek Embassy is proud to present Edgar Allan Poe’s classic: “The Tell-Tale Heart.” I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that Edgar Allan Poe was my first exposure to classical horror. Writers like Lovecraft, Crichton,Read More →
