Salutations! I am Lady Geek Girl, the supreme emperor of this blog
and soon the world! I started this blog and assembled my Scooby Gang to help fight the evils of inequality, intolerance, and people not realizing that the Vulcan death grip isn’t real! Kirk made it up! The real one is the Vulcan nerve pinch! Get with the program people! In case you can’t tell from my user name, I am a lover of all things of Geekdom (there’s also a vague reference to Lady GaGa in there in case you couldn’t tell)! I also have a degree in Theology and English, and I enjoy taking my love of comics, video games, movies, and tv shows, and analyzing them from a religious feminist queer perspective. In my spare time, I plot my eventual world domination with my minions friends and attempt to somehow gain the rights to Jason Todd. Also, I collect unique hats.
I hope you enjoy and comment on the musings of this Geek Girl!
Hello, peeps of the world!
I am Lady Geek Girl’s minion—I mean, best friend. And I was coerced into joining this website as part of her evil master plan to take over the world and outlaw tetrahedral-wielding penguins (they’re dangerous, I tell you). All seriousness aside, I am just as much of a geek as Lady Geek Girl, and for those of you who couldn’t guess it from my user name, I am also asexual. No, in case you’re wondering, while I am a very talented person, sadly I cannot reproduce asexually. I am not an amoeba. Like Lady Geek Girl, I plan to talk about many things pertaining to geekdom, but I also have a vested interest in sexuality and how any orientation that differs from hetero is portrayed or reacted to. Sexuality fascinates me, and by God, I will talk about it. Additionally, I enjoy talking about religion (my religious upbringing was a bit all over the place), video games, movies, why Santa Claus is the scariest person on the planet, the works.
My thanks to anyone who took the time to read about me and I hope you enjoy and comment on my postings
Hi, all! I’m Saika (Lady Saika if you’re feeling polite, but it’s really not necessary). I’m currently studying writing and I’m your go-to anime and BBC expert all up in here. Whereas Lady Geek Girl and MadameAce have got the American nerd market covered, I’m pretty deep into the Japanese nerd scene as well as being an enormously dedicated Doctor Who fan. I’ve seen approximately one million anime, and have lots to say about them. (My username is even from an anime—cookies to those who know which one!) I’ve also seen the entirety of the 1st and 8th-11th Doctors and tend to rhapsodize at length about each and every one. (I’m working my way through the other six.)
I of course have other geek interests ranging from YA fantasy to Star Trek to musical theater to Homestuck to American comics to (of course) Harry Potter, but nowadays I spend most of my time cosplaying. Consider yourself warned, dear reader: these topics can and probably will come up at any time.
I draw fan art. I write fanfiction. I watch the animes, read the mangas, and yes, I do know my favorite character’s theme song and voice actor. I am basically the embodiment of the so-called ‘weeaboo’. But hey, it’s not all that bad. Being a member of several fandoms (Harry Potter, Homestuck, Sta☆Ska, etc…) and being exposed to a culture so drastically different from my own has opened my horizons and has created many, dare I say it, opinions in me. The issues I see tossed about every day, be it on LiveJournal or Tumblr, become important to me. Whilst we may not share the same opinions I hope you find some of what I have to say enlightening. Or, at the very least, humorous.
So come, fall down the rabbit hole and let this part-time fujoushi entertain you.
Hello everyone, my name is Fiyero3305! I feel a bit out of my comfort zone with this commitment to blogging, but Lady Geek Girl has effectively twisted my arm and gotten me to agree to join her Scooby Gang. I think it was very unfair of her to ask while I was in NYC about to see Billy Elliot, and having just seen Rent. That’s a theatre high right there and I should not have been held responsible for my actions while under the influence of Broadway. I am in love with the Catholic faith and though my passion for it waxes and wanes, I don’t think I could ever stop loving the Church.
Anyway, as you have probably guessed, my main geeky area is musical theatre, has been since March 3, 2005 when I saw my first show on Broadway, Wicked (This is where my username comes from) but I have a few other obsessions, including Sailor Moon in all her incarnations, slasher flicks of the 80s and 90s, and the Nickelodeon show/band Big Time Rush. I look forward to over-analyzing these things and more for your entertainment!
I’m nearly a nerd and tragically straight. My major is English. My expertise is in Futurama, literature (Jane Eyre fanatic), Neil Gaiman, and Christopher Moore novels, musicals, web comics, and shoujo manga (especially Skip Beat!). I also have a huge fan girl crush on the goth musician Voltaire. I have a lot of nerd things I haven’t seen yet that I am looking forward to obsessing over.
Hi. I’m Blackout. I’m here to bring a little culture and class to this website. Lady Geek Girl, please put down the brick. I’m kidding.
I’m gonna be covering a lot of disability studies concepts, basically because Aspergers gives me soooooo much street cred on the subject. However, I am up for requests. If there is something that you wish to ask me, please tell me. I’m all about communication.
I am Lady Bacula (you can drop the “Lady” if you wish—all my buddies do), your resident hipster-cosplayer bagpiper and your video game aficionado.
I am a fan of all things anime. If I had to pick my three favorites, they would be (these are not ranked since I love them all dearly) Rurouni Kenshin, Black Butler, and Katekyo Hitman Reborn. I am a HUGE Nintendo fan; I was raised in a one-system household, so my video game knowledge beyond Nintendo is nonexistent. FOR THAT I AM TRULY SORRY. I do play the bagpipes and will be bringing up bagpiping things from time to time (so be on the lookout). I’ve got a ton of other geekery in my life, such as Doctor Who, Star Trek (specifically TNGN and Voyager), Harry Potter, Sherlock, all things Disney, and Supernatural (still under development). But most importantly, I’m your brony!
I’m really excited to hear from all of you and I hope you enjoy my posts!!
I am Alan Perigren. I believe suffering is the spice of life. I hate nearly everything and person ever to exist. I am a humorist. I have a relationship with God characterized mostly by us calling each other assholes. I have a keen interest in video games, music, and men’s rights. I am heterosexual, I love sports, I enjoy tobacco, and I guzzle alcohol. In other words, I’ll be the resident “asshole” liaison. I wear very plain clothing, and I hate that dressing in such an understated and normal fashion causes me to stick out. I hate hippies. I hate sugar and everything nice. Thus, if I were to be defined by a “fic pairing,” it would be Cartman and Buttercup. For the sake of hopefully ruining Blackout’s day as he reads this, I will say that I have graphic dreams of this pairing every night.
I hope that some people enjoy what I write. I believe that common dislikes bring people closer together than common likes, so for the sake of making myself more relatable, I will now list some of my greatest dislikes: I hate Kurt Cobain, social butterflies, people who are different for the sake of different, musicals, fanfiction, most anime/mangas, and people who want a cookie because their lives are too hard. I also hate writing which lacks variation of sentence structure, which means I also hated writing this.
Hi there! I’m Stinekey. Upon meeting Lady Geek Girl during grad school orientation, I thanked my lucky stars (and relevant saints) that I wasn’t doomed to be the only geekdom-loving kid in the class. I’m a Catholic studying theology with hopes of one day securing a position harvesting souls teaching people that religion doesn’t have to suck. I have an obsession with good stories, and love nothing more than diving headfirst into a new fandom. After all… we’re all stories in the end, aren’t we?
Hi! I’m Luce. I read a lot of YA and fantasy books, watch too many British television programs (and too much of geek overlord Stephen Colbert), and I have a tendency to overappreciate fan-created works such as fanfiction or fanart. Minority issues have always interested me (and as a minority, they’ve always affected me as well), so I’m going to be analyzing the minority and identity issues prevalent in these and other topics. It’s great to be here and hopefully some of my musings will be interesting to you!
Salutations! You can call me Ink! Lady Saika has summoned me and the elder evils which accompany me from the murky depths, and I could not be more pleased (though it is a little dry up here, I must say). I consume much too much anime, too much music, and way too many comics. You could call me a dirty hipster kid, a fashion geek, a big old nerd, whatever you want as long as you call me. There’s nothing I won’t pretend to know everything about, but I have a special place in my three hearts for feminism, comic books, A Song of Ice and Fire, The West Wing, and performance studies.
I’m into video games, particularly RPGs and shooters. I’m into poetry and interior design. When I’m not admitting to embarrassing things like that, I do research in the social sciences. I’m a bit of an indie rocker, and I dance a lot. I’m a part-time anthropologist, a full-time feminist, and an overtime baller. Whatever that means.
Thanks for reading! We look forward to comments and discussion from all of you in the future.
