Another month is over and it seems like it just began.
The last 28 days have been incredible not just here at Geekery but across the entire geek and pop culture universe. I’m not sure if it’s the start of con season or the inevitable wave of glorious comic book film adaptations (*cough LOGAN *cough) but I am thrilled for everything the next few months has to throw at us. Now, I know this whole post is supposed to be my time to share with you what is new at Geekery and what is to come, and I will do that, but first I want to say something important. Over the course of this month, we have taken on a significant number of new writers who have been diligently creating some amazing reviews, news articles, etc and every time I look over their work I am amazed and honored that they have decided to be a part of Geekery. There are WAY too many to name individually but you know who you are, and you are amazing. Secondly, a shout out to my second-in-command; Al Mega. This guy is the reason that Geekery is what it is and it wouldn’t be close to as great as it is without him. You’re my boy, blue.
Now, for the new stuff. This month is the launch of the Geekery Podcast. We will be recording an episode per month (for now) and will move towards bi-weekly or weekly episodes in the near future. We will be highlighting and interviewing indie talent and showcasing some of the promising work that people are doing across the Indie-verse. Stay tuned for more info via our social media outlets and on the site.
I had a conversation with a friend a few weeks ago and he made a ridiculous comment that stuck in my brain. He said “I mean, if you are gonna be the Geekery President, shouldn’t you have like a bad ass slogan or something? Like Stan has Excelsior. You better step your game up.” At first I blew it off but it kept coming back to me. And you know what? I SHOULD have a slogan. I mean, I’m definitely no Stan the Man, but I know things. I’ve done stuffs. I thought long and hard about it and decided to share with you something that drives me to succeed every day. A saying that I keep in all my notebooks and write at the top of every script I start.
Always up. Never across.
