Can you feel the excitement kids?
It's Oscar weekend, that magical weekend where we all tune in to watch Hollywood give itself a massive handjob. Don't get me wrong, I like the speculation as much as anyone (see GonzoGeek v. The Oscars). It just seems a little silly that all these movie folks spend hours handing out statues in categories that none of us really care about. In truth, the Oscar telecast could be a one-hour special if they really applied themselves.
Welcome to Friday kids.
I don't know about you, but this weekend couldn't have come any sooner.
If life is a juggling act, I've been struggling to keep all my balls in the air this week.
I'll pause here whilst you make your own jokes.
Okay, moving on.
Our ongoing cold snap has passed and left us with days in the 70s. Perfect weather to bring out the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
I have to honest here. I didn't realize this thing wa...
Welcome to Friday boys and girls.
Last week's run-in with the flu and fever flirting with the high end of the FM dial, left me behind the 8-ball on all fronts this week. I was so far behind that when I sat down at my desk this morning I still didn't have a cheesecake selected. That just doesn't happen kids.
I considered Christina Aguilera, but feared I might forget what I wanted to type.
I have, as previously discussed, a standing "No Lohan" rule.
With the Justin Bi...
What a week dear reader(s).
Snowmageddon was predicted and fell well short of the hype.
I fell victim to an especially nasty flu strain that drove me to bed for most of the week.
Oh yeah, and its Super Big Game week. Really NFL? We can't just call it the S***r B**l anymore? Get over yourself.
Speaking of that which we can actually speak of, say hello to this week's cheesecake, Jillian Barberie Reynolds.
Ms. Reynolds is the weather girl for the Fox footbal...
If you build it, they will come. It worked out just fine in 'Field of Dreams' and it seems to be going well as a potential philosophy around here. I only say potential because so far we haven't spent much time philosophizing about what the hell we're up to here at GG HQ. But that's the way it should be. We are you. You are us. If we like it, we're 99% sure you will too. And if you don't, the other 1% does!
See how that works. Action, not words.
In that spirit, please allow me to introduc...
Dear Mr. Johns
I'm sure you get letters like this every single day. Every fanboy worth his salt has ideas for how to make your mega-events "better."
Given what you've been able to do with JSA, Hawkman and Green Lantern, we should all probably just sit back and let you do what you do.
Of course, we can't.
Everyone has opinions and ideas. Unlike you, most of us don't have the DC Universe at our fingertips to make our ideas reality.
With all that being said,...
If you could spend two days locked in your wood-panelled basement playing 'BlackOps' with anyone on earth, who would you choose?
Awwww....that's sweet. You'd choose your brother. But we said ANYONE on earth. That's right, look up slowly, take a deep breath, and now decide.
We thought you'd come around.
This week's cheesecake is none other than gamer-Geek extraordinaire Olivia Munn. If you're a regular viewer of G4 TV you're probably already familiar with Ms. Munn, hav...
If its Friday that must mean its time for us to, once again, travel the tubes and see what our merry band of Geeks has located for you.
Before we get down to that I want to drop a couple of kernels of knowledge on you.
First, Chris will be filling in for me on the LinkFrogging for the next couple of weeks. I've got some pressing "real world" issues that can't be avoided, so Chris has agreed to take the helm and pilot the vessel to glory. Much obliged.
Secondly, if you wa...
Well boys and girls, its a new year, and we are back.
The gang here at GonzoGeek took a little time off for the holidays (well, except for Matt).
Now we're recharged and ready to roll into the once (on-say). Think that will catch on?
Before we get to the links, we've got to introduce you to our very first slice of cheesecake of 2011. Say hello to Summer Glau.
Ms. Glau boasts quite a set of geek credentials. She played River Tam in Joss Whedon's Firefly a...
It's that time once again kids.
That's right, its the only time of year that Dan Fogelberg gets any regular airplay.
Thank the gods.
It's also the time of year when we look back and see where we've been and where we're heading. It was another good year for the Gonzo Compadres. You, our loyal reader(s), continue to check out our posts and, based on the increased readership this year, pass it along to your friends and neighbors. For that we thank you.
Last year ...
