Geek Chic
Current mood: optimistic
Category: Art and Photography

I find it very interesting that the biggest block busters of recent memory have been based on what would be considered the dork realm of entertainment.
Don't believe me? check it out for yourself http://www.movieweb.com/movies/boxoffice/alltime.php
in the top 25 alone 17 are based on either a fantasy book, a comic book, or are a Star Wars film.  Is it cool to be a geek now? Or is it cool to be a geek with tongue in cheek. Lets not forget, most of the actors and actresses are so deep into geekdom that they weird out geeks.  (think drama dorks from high school if you're not following the logic)
     At which point does watching X-men, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, etccross over to dorkdom?  Reading the comic books shouldn't be the line.  Owning the dvd's certainly isn't dorky, hell special limited extended editions seem to have become common place.  I'll tell ya where ya cross the line into dork.  It can be measured several ways. First and most exact, if you spend more than $20 at anytime on any of the following:
Anything Comic Book related,
Anything that in anyway mentions elves
And greatest of all Any Spacecraft not built by nasa or russia.

The second way it can be measured is slightly less exact but still pretty good if you have done any of the following:
   Lost sleep over "the plight" of any fictional character,
      this includes soap operas and reality TV (no one on tv is acting like themselves)
    had a blog,
    said the phrase "my character..."
    Alphabetized any collection (including music)
    voluntarily stood in a line that wrapped around the side of anything (this exludes gov't waiting lines, and amusement parks.)
    GONE TO A CON!!!
HELL FREAKING YEAH SEE YOU FOOLS THERE!!!!!
aND DON'T FORGET abOUT STOPPING HERE!!

I'M A DORK AND I LOVE IT!!!!

'sides its alot more fun to just do what you love and revel in it.

though that isn't to say that
these people don't make my teeth hurt

can't wait for my trip
