GM15: Zerg Rush/Lab Rats Victors

You were so preoccupied with whether or not you could, you didn't stop to think if you should.

The Victors for the fourth round of the preliminaries are...



Abby Sciuto
"Never forget: I am one of the few people in this world who can murder you and leave no forensic evidence."

Another week where match 1 got more total votes than match 2. Xenomorphs received 7 votes out of 12 (58%) to the Gremlins' 5 votes (42%). The second match had 11 votes total with Abby winning with 6 votes (55%) to Brundlefly's 5 (45%).

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Halfway down the Preliminaries list

Saturday, March 21, 2015



Let's say someone came to you and said "We're going to air one movie a night for 15 days, and we want them to be your favorite movies."

What would your top 15 be? Full titles and dates. Countdown so that your number 1 is last.

Only other rule: If it's a tied franchise (like, let's say you like the Star Wars Saga fairly equally), pick only your most favorite one for your slot.

I want comments. I want lists. Top 15. Go!

My most recently updated list (as an example of how your responses should look):
15. Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003)
14. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
13. The Fifth Element (1997)
12. Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure (1977)
11. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
10. The Secret of NIMH (1982)
9. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
8. Gremlins (1984)
7. Jurassic Park (1993)
6. Batman Returns (1992)
5. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
4. Edward Scissorhands (1990)
3. Spider-Man (2002)
2. Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
1. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)

GM15: Animation Domination/Game Grumps Victors

Interesting dynamic...

The Victors for the third round of the preliminaries are...

The Powerpuff Girls
"And once again the saved!"


"Super Effective!"

The most interesting thing about this round is the fact that more people voted in the first match than they did for the second. The first match had 13 votes, with the Girls garnering 8 votes (62%) to the Roadrunner's 5 (38%). The second match only had a total of 9 votes, where Charizard's 6 votes (66%) beat Sylvanas' 3 (33%).

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

I'm having to shorten some names as I enlarge them for the winner's brackets.

Call to Arms

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

I’m not sure if this is anyone's first time visiting my very small, not quite professional, and extremely self-indulgent blog, but as you can see I am in the midst of a fictional character March Madness parody known as “Geekdom Madness”. Because even though I hate sports with a passion, I love brackets.

Really, the whole thing started last year with’s annual “This is Madness!” character tournament, and me realizing that my favorite Star Wars character would never even be put on such a tournament much less win one.

"And it's someone at this table."

GM15: X Marks the Spot/Gotham Rogues Victors

Only seven of you care about these, eh?

The Victors for the second round of the preliminaries are...



The Penguin
"But what it all comes down to is: who's holding the umbrella?"

Out of seven votes each, Penguin easily handled Riddler 5 (72%) to 2 (28%). However, Jean and Nightcrawler were neck and neck until a single vote pushed it in Nightcrawler's favor, giving him 4 votes (57%) to Jean's 3 (43%)

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!
FYI, fixed a typo to one of tomorrow's contestants. You're welcome.

Nilbog Watches the Third Doctor

Third times a...umm....charm? Well, we're in color at least.

GM15: Heroes in a Half-Shell/Chip Away the Stone Victors

Well, we're off to a start.

The Victors for the first round of the preliminaries are...

"Bossa Nova!...Chevy Nova?...EXCELLENT!"


"Not afraid, are you?"

Both matches had a 3/4 (43%/57%) split out of 7 votes. The above squeaked by a single vote. Though I'm not impressed with the turnout, I am digging how close it ultimately was.

By the way, someone I know is actually making predictions on how this year will turn out. I may post them after the final.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

You know the drill.
