Happy 2012! Meetup News! It’s Thursday!

Happy new year, everyone! I’m pretty excited about where GWC’s headed this year and thought I’d share a few bits of news and happenings. First, we’re making some SERIOUS progress on our plans for the 2012 International Meetup. We announced the date (March 16-18, 2012) on the forum back in November, but it’s taken us […]


Save Eureka #19: H.O.U.S.E. Rules

Yep, our re-watch finally hit what we believe is the turning point for the series (and maybe the show) with an episode that establishes the key characters as well as the future of the franchise. And it brings up some serious discussion about leadership, the arts and sciences, and so on. Enjoy.


GWC #302: Christmas 2011

We offer up some holiday entertainment to hopefully help make that Christmas travel just a little bit easier this season. Rock legends Donnie Iris and the Cruisers join us with a special performance to set the holiday tone. Joanna Wilson, author of ‘Tis The Season TV and the Christmas TV Companion walks us through the […]


Save Eureka #17: Purple Haze

We enjoy the humor (and all-round awesomeness) of Taggart and Allison showing some skin. We note some key moments in Eureka long-term-arc continuity exposed in this episode as well as some killer character development. We get a big kick out of the Fargo/Seth slap fight — and the quite realistic Allison/Bevery showdown. We discuss the […]


GWC #301: Top (n)

We round up some of the Best of 2011 in our new patent-pending Top (n) lists. And we run down the week in geek, including some analysis of the analysis of Trek 2/12, Baldwin’s now-infamous Words With Friends addiction, a cool new take on Snow White, and the latest trends in ePublishing.


Modern Geek #17: 360 Dashboard Update, Boxee, Retro Gaming

We talk about the huge change coming to the Xbox 360 dashboard in the next few weeks. We dissect the addition of live TV via antennae to the Boxee Box. We drool over ThinkGeek’s awesome sub-$100 portable retro gaming rig — and quietly add it to both our Christmas lists. And we discuss a reader’s […]


GWC #297: TV/Movie Catch-Up

We catch you up on all the great shows and movies we’ve been watching for the past few months. And we run down the week in geek, including the new Elder Scrolls game release, a possible Bruce Willis casting in an upcoming Neuromancer big-screen debut, re-writes and shuffling in the Battleship/Asteroids camps, and lots, lots […]


Eff This Week #9: Novembeard

It’s Effin time again, and we rise to the occasion. Ish. Ok, we show up and do a podcast for whatever that’s worth. This week’s Eff This Week crew: Audra, Chuck, and Juan. Highlights: It’s a PODCAST! Ok. Seriously, I should crowdsource this. Help me out. Tell me what this podcast was about in comments, […]


Eff This Week #7: Generic Drunken Podcast

Yep, it’s that time of week again. The time where we eff. We eff it all up, you know, with Juan live in the studio for one last time this year. Your Eff This Week crew this week: Chuck, Audra, and Juan. Highlights: We’re here. Yeah, you heard me.


Crysis: What I Was Missing

I was feeling a bit under the weather, and for once it was raining all weekend so I was stuck inside. When this occurs, a rather grumpy monster forms inside my brain that craves new media. Be it movie, anime, or game, I must consume something. I happened to have some Microsoft points gifted to […]


Are the Rising Costs of Geek Communications Worth It?

I’m a tech geek. I love my gadgets. But tech comes at a cost, and a recent Modern Geek Podcast on how geeks communicate got me thinking: how much does all this newfangled technology really cost us? For a household of six, my family’s monthly entertainment/communications costs are outrageous (cue the “Get off my lawn!” sound […]


What’s Your Con Personality? Delights & Differences of Comic-Con and Dragon*Con

I just returned from my first Dragon*Con and my head is still spinning. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t think any event could match Comic-Con for geek impact and intensity, but I was wrong. A lot of people like to compare the two Cons in a heated exchange. I think this is unnecessary. Both are […]
