Geek Like Me, or The Nerdish Mystique

There has been a fundamental paradigm shift

in recent years. You see, once upon a time being a "geek" or a "nerd" was an entirely bad thing. It was just awful.

You didn't have friends, you were obsessed with stupid stuff that no normal person cares about, you were a misfit.

Then...

Suddenly...

From out of nowhere...

Everything that made "geeks" "geeky" became... kind of ok.

It all went from being relegated to comic book stores, obscure shelves in the corner of your local video stores, and poorly attended conventions to acceptable and, dare I say, mainstream.

This week we take a look at what it means to be a geek today and how we got there.

Also, we are trying to have a new weekly segment that requires your assistance. Call our Google Voice number at (512) 666-RANT (7268) and leave a message about your worst experience in a theater. That message will be transformed into comic GOLD by the power of Google Voice's text preview, voice recognition translation. Listen to this and last weeks show and you will see what we mean.

And we are still raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association on behalf of our little buddy Amadeo Andrade who was diagnosed with Becker Muscular Dystrophy in 2008. Last year, as a team, we raised $23,800 in support of Amadeo for MDA! This year our team goal is $25,000. We will be raising money until February of 2013. Anything will help and be appreciated, and remember all donations are tax deductible!

This year we are Amadeo's ARMY. Not team. Not club. Not group. ARMY! So lets show a great kid just how bad ass Thug fans are.

His Page Link is Below:

Amadeo's Army

Also here is the link to the team page if you would like to read a little about Amadeo:

General/Chariman of the Joint Cheifs of Staff for Amadeo's Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.

Thank you for checking that out.

And we are still looking for questions for our "Ask the Film Thugs" show. Ask us about anything at all. Could be about movies, relationships, family, history, recipes, what have you. We will have no idea what your questions are until we read them on the show. Do you want you want to know how quick Jim and Clarkson came come up with some bullshit? Sure you do! So go ahead and ask away at thugquestions@gmail.com

Finally...
