Web Clip Wednesday and Happy Geek Pride Day

It’s Geek Pride Day and searched high and low for something good for Geek Pride/Towel Day. And what better than a geeky parody of Rebecca Black’s Friday. So Don’t Panic and May the Force be with you. I know I plan on doing some sort geeky relaxation today if it kills me.

It’s been a heck of week

Really, it’s been a great week for discussion on Castles and Crusades. I’d like to thank all folks who stopped by. Next week things are going to get back to what passes for “normal” here at the old blog. The usual features and hopefully some new stuff. And if you liked the Castles and Crusades

Gogos Crazybones: I detect an upcoming geek fad.

Gogos Crazybones may be just another collectible kiddie craze like Pokemon but I’m pretty sure that this going to catch on with the geeks out there. These things could be a fun little game in the cube farm or at lunch. Hell, they’d make some neat cube decorations too. Let’s face it, us geeks have

I was going to run the title as “I kissed a nerd” but I thought some folks would take it the wrong way. But then again I have kissed a Food Nerd and liked it. But that’s another story. But any this week, I’m featuring something that’s actually sort new. I’m sure we can expect
