SCIENCE FICTION UNIVERSITY:And The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth

Charlie W. Starr's picture

Does the current rise in shows about Geeks and Geek Culture (like Big Bang Theory, Chuck, etc.) signal something more theological than we thought?

Well, maybe and maybe not... but Dr. Starr is going to dive in anyway!

In the spring of 2007 a YouTube user with the channel name ItsJustSomeRandomGuy posted a short parody of the then-current Mac/PC commercials. His tools could not have been more simple, just a camera and a collection of action figures.

Join me after the jump to see what happened afterwards.


BOOK REVIEW: “Soon I Will be Invincible” by Austin Grossman (2007)

As Republispouse, my wife, is fond of pointing out, I’m always thinking. It’s the way I make my horribly obvious OCD and other mental woes work for me. It’s not enough that I don’t like a particular kind of cheese, or that golf doesn’t appeal to me, no, that’d be too simple. I have to know *exactly* why I don’t like cheese, and why for some reason this particular kind doesn’t appeal to me when, in fact, several other similarly-related kinds do. I need to know exactly what it is about golf that makes me think about suicide as a viable alternative to playing it.


FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Lazy Teenage Superheroes"

Church's picture

Green Lantern and X-Men: First Class are currently in theaters, but if you only see one superhero movie today, it should be Lazy Teenage Superheroes, an original twelve minute short about a trio of superpowered slackers and their avereage joe roommate. Have a look at the trailer. (Some NSFW languge ahead.)

Intrigued? The full thing is after the jump.


MOVIE REVIEW: X-Men: First Class

Wil Avitt's picture

Mutation. It is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward…

X-Men: First Class is the fifth installment of the X-Men film franchise, which started (and kicked off the current superhero trend in motion pictures to boot) with Bryan Singer’s X-Men way back in 2000. X-Men is unique among other superhero film franchises in that it has made it to five films without dying out or having to be rebooted. No other superhero film franchise has been able to accomplish this. Because of this, X-Men is worthy of some congratulations.
