Who Watches The Winkerdog?

…besides her big sister

Some facts about me and why I’ll always be a less than perfect geek

I…

1: Was never very impressed by Joss Whedon’s work
2: Haven’t paid money for a comic book since 1981
3: Haven’t read more than 1 or 2 graphic novels/comic books in the last 5 years
4: Bought exactly 6 d20 products…and 3 of those were the core books
5: Sold or gave away all those d20 products
6: Have never gotten more than a few pages into Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy
7: Read almost no Sci-Fi or Fantasy anymore
8: Refused to whine about what was missing/included in the Lord of the Rings movies.
9: Thought most of Cloverfield was a waste of time.
10: Am pretty underwhelmed by most of the indie games I’ve seen.
11: Enjoy reading filksong lyrics, but actually hearing most folks sing them…no
12: Don’t play minis wargames (altho, I do like looking at the setups)
13: Think 99% of all recent horror films are utter shit
14: Only regularly watch about 25% of the sci-fi/fantasy shows that come on tv
15: No longer think original Star Trek was all that great
16: Never liked Red Dwarf
17: Still have not watched an episode of the new Battlestar Galactic
18: Probably will never buy another edition of D&D
19: Hate Hannah-Barbera cartoons
20: Want to slap the many geeks who think that the height of humor is endlessly quoting lines from Monty Pythons Flying Circus

    I agree with #9, #13, and #19…but in my book Joss Whedon = Genius and Firefly = Amazing.

    Taking the list in toto, I have to ask in what way you’re a geek at all?

      Well, I’m a gaming geek…and I loves me some Star Trek (TNG being my fave and Voyager tying with Enterprise for least fave)…and I’m a big kaiju fan…and I like a whole lot of anime…and I like sci-fi and fantasy books/movies (I’m just way pickier than many geeks…and I love superhero movies…
      So, I’m a geek….BUT, I’m a fan…not a Fan.

    This comes across as the beginnings of a meme…
    I’ll bold the comments I agree with, italicise those I’m neutral with, and leave alone those I disagree with.
    1: Was never very impressed by Joss Whedon’s work
    2: Haven’t paid money for a comic book since 1981 (I used to buy KODT)
    3: Haven’t read more than 1 or 2 graphic novels/comic books in the last 5 years
    4: Bought exactly 6 d20 products…and 3 of those were the core books (bought too many)
    5: Sold or gave away all those d20 products (hold onto all my gaming gear)
    6: Have never gotten more than a few pages into Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (I’ve read it, never found it all that funny, never got the fuss)
    7: Read almost no Sci-Fi or Fantasy anymore (I still read it, but not nearly as much)
    8: Refused to whine about what was missing/included in the Lord of the Rings movies.
    9: Thought most of Cloverfield was a waste of time.(never saw it)
    10: Am pretty underwhelmed by most of the indie games I’ve seen. (I haven’t seen enough to comment)

    12: Don’t play minis wargames (altho, I do like looking at the setups)
    13: Think 99% of all recent horror films are utter shit (haven’t watched any)
