Geek Rock.

I got my anti-social behind out of the house this weekend and saw Jonathan Coulton along with Paul and Storm on Saturday night. If those names aren’t familiar to you, then I highly recommend you click the links and check them out. Jonathan is an extremely talented singer-songwriter.  His songs feature alot of geek related references and zombies. Paul and Storm are a musical comedy duo who often travel with Jonathan but are also doing their own thing with w00tstock. I honestly don’t think I have laughed that much in a very long time. When/If they come to your town….GO.  Argh! *

*that only makes sense if you have been to one of his shows…or are a pirate.

Geeks are chic.

FREAKS AND GEEKS

I’m not sure when it happened but I think it is officially The Age of the Geek. With Steve Wozniak on Dancing with the Stars and the rise of the whole Apatow acting clan, geeks are everywhere. Jaunted.com has put together a whole section on best geek trips to take, Aisha Tyler talks about why “geeks have recently, finally, come into vogue.”  and this book is apparently going to teach me how to be a geek goddess(like I’m not there already). Does this mean I can finally go public with my crush on John Oliver now?

Also, has anyone noticed that the “Freaks” or “Slackers” side of Freaks and Geeks went on to have pretty successful movie and tv careers: Linda Cardellini(ER), Seth Rogan(Knocked Up), James Franco(Milk) and Jason Segal(Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Huh. Just thought that was kinda interesting.
