It's Comic Con Time! What's your other side of geekiness???

San Diego Comic Con 2010 starts today and lots of my friends are at SD as I speak. I've been to New York Comic Con twice and its quite crazy and massive. It's an experience everybody has to have once so we all can channel our inner geek (because being a geek is now so fashionably cool).

As this site is mostly devoted to 70% horror, cult and exploitation geekiness, there are a couple of other followings I am also a part of. Why am I going to tell you what these are?

Because an unknown masked man has pointed a gun to my head and demanded I tell you all!!!!

You all know some part of you has some other geeky following you're a part of...I'm just admitting it now because my life depends on it! OK so here we go.
  • Star Trek: Yes folks, I'm 60% Trekkie. I watched all the series but I really dug TNG and DS9 mostly. I loved JJ Abrams reboot and I do have a few DVDs and toys in my home. Make it so!
  • Harry Potter: I'll admit it. I read ALL THE BOOKS and have watched all the movies. Somehow back in 2000, I was led to believe it was acceptable for a man in his 20s to read a childrens book and I got hooked. Wands, potions, Voldemort and Hogwarts. I'm a muggle but I love me some magic.
  • Back to the Future: Great Scott! This is my favorite trilogy ever (more than Star Wars or the Matrix, etc). I've always been a time travel diehard and really considered getting a DeLorean at one point (I'm not kidding)
  • Tarantino: I'm a big Quentin Tarantino fan and have all his movies (well except Inglorious Basterds and Grindhouse (that shits gotta be one movie dammit!). We're all Q.T. fans in some form but his movies are totally MUST SEE for me.
  • Kevin Smith: Yup, I dig the fat man from Jersey. I've seen all his films (well except Cop Out as I'll wait to see this on DVD). I've actually seen Smith perform his Evening with at Carnegie Hall. It was mega awesome. that enough Mr. Masked Man with the very large hand cannon? I've admitted all my geekiness to the blogosphere. What more do you want??

You want others to tell everybody what their hidden geek cult following is as well? OK guys and gals, what are you a secret devoted follower of? C'mon now, time to share.

It's Comic Con time. It's the perfect time to reveal your inner geekiness. Umm and the masked man really wants to know.....


  1. I'm really excited about Splatterhouse... not to even mention to premiere of the full Goon trailer. It should be SWEET!

  2. Uff, glad to be involved all the big event with limited capacity, full of bustle and membership became an important guarantee for a place. San Diego had charms for a few days. Back to the childhood, a world full of color and taste.

  3. You gotta go and say "Hi" to the 2000AD boys. Try and blag a free copy of ZOMBO for a review. Oh and get a copy of DAFOE (Zombies in the middle ages. Cracking read).

  4. ZOMBO's not out yet, but get em to send it to ya!!!

  5. Greetings!
    I am giving this award to of my favorite blogs and places I believe need some well deserved attention. I thought it might be fun to shake it up a bit, sort of a "Pay It Forward" move... let me explain.

    01) Give the award to [10] who you like, but give a couple the "Next Blog" slider button on top... so random blogger people can feel the love from a stranger.

    02) Post those you gave the award to, so fans of your site can see the places you like and Paid It Forward too.

    *If we are not careful there will be "Zombie Rabbits" everywhere...


  6. Im quasi-geeked about AVENGERS, but Mark Ruffalo?? Honestly?? I went to SDCC a few years back and it is sickeningly crowded, AND I missed both Kevin Smith since he was late AND the Spiderman 3 Venom reveal because the auditorium was packed. Never went back.
