Geekmas Time Is Here!

Christmas season is upon us, and now more than ever there are many geek gifting options.

I’ve seeing the various geeky gifts lists pop up here and there, gifts for lady geeks, gifts for dude geeks, gifts for lazy geeks, and so on.

But lets be honest, tis the season of giving, and buying for our fellow geeky friends what we could never justify buying for ourselves. Not because we don’t love treating ourselves to well earned gifts, but because sometimes we feel a tad bit guilty buying those $20.00 geek themed cookie cutters when we should probably spend that money responsibly, like on booze or kitty litter.

I have compiled a list of 10 awesomely geeky gifts that we love, and would love to receive, though we might not necessarily buy for ourselves. However, we would have zero problems buying this for our friends or significant others (hint hint, significants!) I have also made this list completely absent of t-shirts and leggings, much as I love them, I think we can aim to be a little more creative than what we normally give our fellow geeks.

10. Virtually Vintage – 3D Geek Ornaments ($10.00/ea)

These 3D ornaments are rather gorgeous, and would be an amazing addition to any geek themed Christmas tree.

Brace Yourselves, Valentine’s Day Cards are coming.

Okay, so the fandoms over on Tumblr have already begun rolling out some pretty hilarious Valentines.  No, really if these were really available they’d put Hallmark out of business. Here is a selection of the most interesting ones being reblogged from the cute feel inducing ones to the down right wrong! (But hilarious)

SDCC 2013: Thank You, Wired Cafe (Again)

SDCC 2013: Wired Cafe

It is probably through pure luck or miracle that Gizzy B and I always manage to get invited inside the Wired Cafe, the ultimate oasis inside the Omni Hotel during Comic-con weekend. I am not sure if I received the official invite this year because of my previous employment or if we had paid our dues enough to be considered on the official list. Last year, one of their sponsors had invited us to do coverage and interviews. The years before that . . . well, it was me putting my employment status to good use, of course!

As the convention and attendance grew bigger, more and more people are getting elbowed out of the Wired Cafe in favor of perhaps more “important” guests. Don’t get me wrong. We are extremely grateful that Wired Cafe continued to keep its doors opened to us and we enjoyed every minute of it — we sing their praise to all our friends (aka, we rub it in to people who didn’t get an invite . . .) and if we could, we would marry Wired Cafe.

Star Trek Into Darkness, Did You Watch?

Defective Geeks Into Darkness!
We ran into Julie Doll/Smileysquid!

Last night, Gizzy B and I watched Star Trek Into Darkness and we really enjoyed it! We won’t say much for now because we don’t want to spoil it for everyone out there, but feel free to let us know what you thought of the movie if you’ve seen it!

What were your favorite parts? Personally, I am not the biggest Benedict Cumberbatch fan (don’t worry, everyone else on Defective Geeks are inlove with him . . . just not me! Ha!) but what did you guys think of him in the movie? Who was your favorite character? How did this one compare to the first movie?

Zoey Zaldana rocked Uhura so hard, I thought! And the Kirk and Spock moments? Priceless.

Ep. 90 Star Trek Drunkcast

 

Pilbeam, Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen breaks out the drinks once again to play a ‘Star Trek’ drinking game. Listen as the ladies watch the original series, episode ‘Trouble with Tribbles’, after consuming a bottle of red wine and struggle with melted marshmallows. We get pretty ridiculous.
