Geekdom Madness: TRG - Console Wars Victor

You guys were all Nintendo children, weren't you?

The Victor for the fifth round of The Real Game is....

"Here we go!"
I had to end the poll early (sorry about that), but at the end out of 12 votes Luigi had 58% to Sonic's 42%. Afraid of the Death Glare, guys?
Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

LOTR is the New Star Wars

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

I love Star Wars. I talk about Star Wars all the time. It’s my most favorite of favorite things in the world.

But it’s not my only favorite thing.

Geekdom Madness: TRG - Animate Me Victor

Sufferin' Succotash, what an upset!

The Victor for the fourth round of The Real Game is.....

"I don't know when, I don't know how, but I know something's starting right now!"   

I was seriously not expecting this! Out of 13 votes, Ariel got 54% while Daffy got blasted with 46%. I figured it would be close, but I'm pleasantly surprised that we now have not one but two women going into the quarter-finals. I guess nothing can beat a Mermaid in the water.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

FYI, it might be a little late tomorrow. Don't worry!

Chewie Chewie

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

Kashyyk, home of the Wookiees. It was featured in the Star Wars Holiday Special, and slated to make an appearance in Return of the Jedi before it was replaced with the Forest Moon of Endor. Fans had been dying to see it for years. They finally got their wish in 2005, where the planet features heavily in Revenge of the Sith.

"Come see our majestic fjords."

Geekdom Madness: TRG - Secret Crises on Infinate Wars Victor

This was really really close. It was actually the first in a while that was tied at one-point. But even with the early poll closing, some last-minute votes squeaked by, and there can be only one.

The Victor for the third round of The Real Game is...


Thought they were often neck and neck, our feisty feline kept pulling ahead, and at the end of the day out of the 10 votes total she recieved 60% of the vote to Deadpool's 40%.
Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Can you think of a sonnet? Or a...dirty limerick?

Some Stuff

Got some stuff to discuss.

1. The Geekdom Madness poll closed early today. I won't have time to do it later today because I'm working more hours. Results will come as always. Please understand.

2. My Jedi News article did not go up on that site. I want to find out what's going on before I post it here. Please understand.

3. I've finally gotten all of my birthday gifts from people, and I will show them off for your eternal envy. But not now, because time. Soon. Please understand.

4. Lots of stuff has been happening with me and WoW lately, and even though nobody else here has ever really shown any interest whatsoever when I've spoken about it in the past, I still want to write about it in a post (or several) in the very near future because it's my blog, so shut up,. Please understand.

5. I am considering possibly turning Adsense on for this blog once I've done more research on it, so I can start making a little extra moneywithout burning myself out at work. If you think this is THE WORST IDEA IN THE LONG SAD HISTORY OF BAD IDEAS and have a legitimate reason for thinking so, let me know so I can have all the information and make you guys happy about coming to this site. Please understand.

Nanu Nanu

You were the Bat that got me to start quoting movies.

You were the Genie that showed me I could love, and laugh, with Disney.

You were the dad who posed as the nanny to see his kids, at a time when I was caught in the middle of my own parents.

You were the comic who, when you did stand-up, made me nearly pass out in laughter every time without fail.

You were the best parts of what you did.

I don't do these a lot, because too many good people leave us every day to even keep up. But I had to say something today, because of how much your work has touched and influenced me. Part of me is still hoping that in a few hours it'll turn out to be a hoax. But I know after the chaos of your life, you deserve a peaceful rest.

The Genie has been freed.

Farewell, Mr. Williams.

Geekdom Madness: The Real Game - Battle Amongst the Stars Victor

I should have known better.

The Victor for the first round of The Real Game is...

Jar Jar Binks
"Mesa accept dis with muy muy humility!"
I should not have doubted that my readerbase would lean more Star Wars, as out of 12 votes Jar Jar stumbled away with 67% to Spock's 33%. Will Jar Jar's luck continue, however?
Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Merch Ado About Nothing

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

I think I’ve pinpointed one reason why Disney’s handling of the Star Wars property has left a bad taste in my mouth, and why I can’t help but feel worried about the fate of Episodes I-III.

Merchandising. Where the real money from the movie is made.
