I came to a realization this week.
That realization? That my kids are getting older and at some point I’m
going to have to explain the noble pursuit that is GonzoGeek to them.
Sure, they understand that dear old dad and some of his friends have a website,
but they don’t really understand what that means or involves. It became
even more apparent the other night when, upon looking at the forthcoming design
of our update, they asked me why we had girls in bikinis on there.
That led us into a discussion of traffic and hits. It also led to so
seriously glazed eyes.
What? Why yes, I did mention an update. Thanks for paying attention.
We’ve been promising an updated website since the end of 2010 and now, dear
reader(s), its arrival is imminent. Imminent as in Monday I’m told.
When you drop by on Monday you should see a whole new look for us here at the
‘Geek. Its a change we’re VERY excited about.
And that’s not our only big news.
We are currently in discussions with a certain columnist. If things go
well, he’ll be bringing you his musings on all things sporting and entertaining.
But wait! There’s more.
Just this very morning we got confirmation that a quartet of your favorite Geeks
will be attending Comic-Con International in San
Diego (Whale’s Vagina for all you German speakers out there) in July.
More details on that in the coming weeks. Just know that we’ve been
planning that one for a while and we’re all VERY excited about the chance to attend and
report on the premiere Geek event of the year.
Don’t worry, we won’t forget to dance with who brung us.
This week’s selection comes from Aamir.
Here’s what he had to say about her…
This week’s Cheesecake is Anna “Aya” Stefanowicz, vocalist for the Polish band UNSUN.
Aya is married to Maurycy “Mauser” Stefanowicz, who is the
guitar player for UNSUN and ex-member of the highly lauded Polish death metal
outfit called VADER.
She’s got a great voice, is very easy on the eyes, and has a really cute Eastern
European accent. UNSUN are easily and quickly tagged with the “Gothic-Metal” stamp, but I feel they are a lot more
accessible than that. The music is heavy, but the melodies and
arrangements are rooted in Pop sensibility. The latest UNSUN record is
called “Clinic For Dolls” and was released in October
of 2010. The production is killer sounding and the songs are catchy,
really fun and kinda kitchy too…but who doesn’t like a little bit of cheese now
Well done, Aamir. Well done.
