Instead of songs about bad relationships or drug use, they write geek music about Pokemon and Star Trek.
My phone wouldn’t stop buzzing yesterday after Felicia Day (Buffy, The Guild, Dollhouse, Eureka) retweeted my exclamatory blurb for her newest project: the Geek and Sundry YouTube channel. Specifically, I urged people to “watch @feliciaday make a fireplace poker with a real live blacksmith!” which spawned several good-natured jokes about undead blacksmiths or pokers made from blacksmith bits, and a surprising stream of retweets.
But 140 characters is barely a sentence, so I thought I’d go ahead and share a slightly more detailed reaction to all the nerdy programming that debuted.
I’ve got some events and deadlines coming up in the next couple of months, so it’s crunch time. First, at the start of October I’ll be headed to Seattle for Geek Girl Con with my friend Clare. I’m pretty excited about this, especially since I had a rather disappointing time at Comic-Con this year. It’s also my last big ticketed event until I get a new job.
