You want to have a minute to expose you to the very first of the couple big changes are visiting YouBentMyWookie. Plus a much more exclusive content, you may also anticipate seeing an excellent new regular art feature on the website which will consider the creators of the favorite art, toys, comics and games from the totally different and new position. Last, but certainly most famously may be the new and improved Weekly Geekly.
We began the Weekly Geekly almost exactly last year with the aim of getting a lady geek’s perspective towards the site. That remains the goal but we will step up a notch for you personally. Within the next handful of several weeks you will notice a few of the web’s coolest Geek women dominate The Weekly Geekly. They are amazing at the things they’re doing within their lives and finish geeks for their core.
With this, I’d prefer to introduce our first official new Weekly Geekly contributor, Kylee Lane. Together with as being a fervent Star Wars Fan, Kylee has additionally determined a method to turn her geekdom into her career. She has Luxury Lane Soap the HQ for your nerdy soap needs!
Now, here’s Kylee’s first publish and also the inaugural publish from the new Weekly Geekly, her write down from the hottest ticket at Comic Disadvantage 2011, This Year’s Geek Women Network Geek Out!
One the very best reasons for staying at Comic-Disadvantage may be the mass levels of like-minded people you meet. Shedding phrases like “Blank is the my blank cover band” “That’s what she said…” It normally won’t become older here because, like a group, we obtain it. I believe partly it is due to the truth that we predominately function on the internet and really dealing with say aloud the items we type…it almost feels new.
And So I am sitting here attempting to form my first piece for YouBentMyWookie.com, since the awesome which was the Geek Women Network Geek-Out party… and that i keep thinking to WHAT chose to make this party stick out? Let’s begin: Stellar location, Vin De Syrah, spirit and wine parlor. Yes… parlor. Awesome visitors, Grant Imahara and Bonnie Burton, amongst others. Fantastic swag from ThinkGeek, Luxury Lane Soap, Angel Punk, SmartPop Books yet others. All of this by having an amazing soundtrack supplied by Arturo (@aboynamedart). It was genuinely several like-minded people and buddies.
Naturally we all mingle and discuss the hilarity of every others shirts, tossing out quotes in our favorite films and shows, you cannot help but think about WHY can’t real existence end up like this every single day?
There’s something HUGE to become stated about getting a in person conversation. Something we lack when tossing gemstones at our friends on the internet. We grapple with one another, demanding validation from the someone else’s geekiness, failing to remember it’s all about passion. As “geeks” I believe we forget that a lot of the awesome we see is just within our own circles. The real life just doesn’t view it like we all do.
Therefore the party rocks !, you will find smiles, laughs, hugs. The Geek-Out ended at 10:30 and everyone was accepted all of us reverted to that place i was before “geek” got trendy. No one left at that time because i was so involved in conversation and squees… until another attendee was verbally assaulted. Known as a nerd inside a demeaning way, for the reason that mocking tone we heard in class whenever we were little. Out of the blue, like a community, we’re transported to that place we’ve been attempting to avoid because the first moment we freely declared you want to be starship captains, Time Lords, and Jedi whenever we increased up. Before we should be awesome kids.
Also it hurts.
It doesn’t matter what you like, what your neighbor loves, whether or not this qualifies as geek or not…be it normal, extreme, reality, sci-fi, fantasy… think for 2 seconds before you decide to start to sing and become a jerk. There are many others available waiting to achieve that. No one need to validate ourselves. We do not have to demonstrate just how much we like something. I was at Comic-Disadvantage for screaming loud!! Geek mecca! We’ve got to prevent hurting one another, interior and exterior our community. As geeks, when we cant even accept one another, the way the hell will we expect other people to?
So my dearest Nerds, party on inside your favorite t-shirt and jeans, don’t restrain your Monty Python quotes and please remember to deal with one another with kindness and love because there are many self righteous cranky pants available already.
