Ep. 42 Finding Love with Boba Fett

| Posted by | No Comments

The Lady Defective Geeks wraps up the year by not talking about the holidays but by discussing a very important topic: geeks and love. They discuss aspects of a nerd fantasy world about dating and falling in love, fear of rejection and getting rejected. We tell tales of real life situations such as Swedish boys who look like hobbits or boys in coffee shops who look like Prince Caspian.

Fangirl Flashbacks Part 2: ‘The Dark Knight’ Parodies

| Posted by | 1 Comment

Recently the Space Pirate Queen posted a blog with all these wonderful Lord of the Rings parodies. Being quite the “Ringer” (that was one of our nicknames) back in the day, it brought back some wonderful memories. It made me think of funny parodies I enjoy from other fandoms, so naturally Batman came to mind.

I decided to join the parody bandwagon and post some of my favorite parodies from when The Dark Knight came out. It’s always fun to go back and enjoy these parodies, but now their nostalgia factor has been amplified with all of the The Dark Knight Rises excitement.

Here is one of the most popular ones. A spoof of the interrogation scene:

I’ll defend Batman (and his voice) to a tee, but that doesn’t mean this video isn’t bloody hilarious.

Fangirl Flashbacks: ‘Lord of the Rings’ Funny Parodies

| Posted by | 2 Comments

A recent twitter update by Fortune Cookie brought on quite a bit of nostalgia for myself this morning. Back in the day (which wasn’t that long ago), I was pretty big on the Lord of the Rings movies. Which geek wasn’t, really? I got on the internet and pulled up all the best video parodies that were uploaded during the LotR craze. Funny how a few years of video quality is noticeable. Let’s start with the ever classic They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard, one of the original music remixes on the web I would say.

Or you can watch the version that goes on for 10 hours long here. Yes. I know.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Prologue (No Spoilers)

| Posted by | 3 Comments

I just got home from watching the first six minutes of The Dark Knight Rises.

Holy. Crap. I’m a little speechless right now, I’m not going to lie. That was so awesome I can barely comprehend it. I’m not going to spoil anything, but what a fucking entrance for Bane. You get a sense of his power, mental and physical. You could feel everybody in the theater enthralled with what they saw. The sequence that takes place is incredible, intense, and I’m sure on its way to becoming iconic. I’m replaying it in my head right now, and WOW. Just… wow. It was everything I hoped it would be and totally worth the drive and waiting in line since 4:30.

Wait, give me a moment to hyperventilate… OK. I’m good now.

Anyway, Batman fans, you are in for a treat. These six minutes are badass, intense, and will leave you in awe. The coolest part is that we didn’t just see the first six minutes of the movie, afterwards they give you short, but sweet glimpses of other scenes. Less than a second, but just enough to tease you with what is to come. It took a few minutes for the prologue to sink in, but once it did, I became so excited. In so many words, it was fucking epic.

Holy. Crap.

My only complaint is that we only saw six minutes! I know that was part of the deal, but all of a sudden the prologue was over and I wanted more. Dianne and I agreed that they should have just played the prologue on a loop until 10:30.

I can’t believe I have to wait until July to see the rest.

By the way, I was second in line! A fact I am very proud of.  I was the first person for the 10PM showing, but counting the people from the 10:30 PM showing, I was second. (I feel bad about this though, because I was video interviewed based upon the fact that I was “first” when technically I was not. I was so nervous and excited with this huge camera in my face that I didn’t point out that technically I wasn’t. I feel like kind of a jerk right now. So, people who were really first, if you see this, I’m so sorry! I was nervous and barely able to think straight. I did not mean to steal your crown of Firstness!)

Now, everyone. Pardon me while I breathe into a paper bag and cry tears of joy while eating ice cream.
