Geekdom Madness: Miscellaneous Right Victor

The odds were certainly in someone's favor...

The Victor for the sixteenth and final round of the preliminaries is....

("Victors Are").....

Calvin and Hobbes
"Surely you concede I deserve it!"
In a not-so-stunning upset, out of 8 votes, Calvin and Hobbes received 63% of the vote, while Katniss only got 37%. 

Here's the breakdown. Tomorrow, the Real Game begins!
These are filling out quite nicely

Sorry guys

But after receiving 31 spam comments while I was at work in addition to the ten I just got, I'm adding a Captcha to the comments. I know it's annoying, and I hate it, but I hate the spam comments even more.

Geekdom Madness: Miscellaneous Left Victor

Well, that was unexpected.

The Victor for the fifteenth round of the preliminaries is:

Raggedy Ann
"Times get bad, but I don't worry...'Cause I know you'll see me through."
Even though I voted for her myself, and even though I made that little half-joke about substitutions, I am still shocked that out of 9 votes, Raggedy Ann scored 67% to Count Dracula's 33%. Let's see how much farther she gets in the competition.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

I did NOT see that coming

At the Sound of the Tone

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

There are many reasons why The Phantom Menace is my favorite Star Wars film, but it boils down to the fact that every single thing about the film gives me the warm fuzzies and butterflies. Even the marketing.

Geekdom Madness: British Invasion Victor

What a close race! of them had a bit of a lead. Well...I think the other one only got one vote...

The Victor for the fourteenth round of the preliminaries is:

The Doctor
"Just this once, everybody lives!"
Out of 12 votes, The Doctor got 92% to the Black Knight's 8%. Now, I'm not the best at math, but that sounds to me like the Knight only scored a single vote. Or, as he'd put it, "We'll call it a draw."

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

So that's like, one vote per Doctor?

A Saga Fan's Approach to Episode VII

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

Even though this column is primarily dedicated to I-III advocacy, some of you may notice I’ve made little or no mention of the goings on with the developing Episode VII and beyond. As I’ve been hinting, there’s a reason for that, and this article will finally tell you.

Geekdom Madness: British Invasion

This week's match-up: Their names are titles, so I won't make some up for them.

Geekdom Madness: Adventure, Ho! Victor

Don't forget your hat....

The victor for the thirteenth round of the preliminaries is:

Indiana Jones
"That depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be."
Jones dominated the 13-vote total with 77% to Captain Jack's 23%. Kind of expected, though I was hoping for the opposite.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Brackets. Why did it have to be brackets?
