Nothing worse than a geek who thinks he’s cool

Billionaire Tesla founder Elon Musk doesn’t like Mike Judge’s new HBO show “Silicon Valley”:

“I really feel like Mike Judge has never been to Burning Man, which is Silicon Valley,” Musk said. “If you haven’t been, you just don’t get it. You could take the craziest L.A. party and multiply it by a thousand, and it doesn’t even get fucking close to what’s in Silicon Valley. The show didn’t have any of that.”

He looked around the circle and asked, pointing with his chin, who had been to Burning Man. Not a one.

Musk is also reportedly dating dipshit Cameron Diaz, so that tells you plenty.

Dragon-Connection, Chuck Woolery style

Thomas Wheatley uncovers the softer side of Dragon*Con. I just cut and pasted.

Knoxville Reenactor – w4m – 25 (Dragon*Con)

This is totally platonic (I told you that I was married). Anyway, I talked to you for about 30 minutes while waiting to go out to dinner with my husband and his friends. You were in line for the Comic Book Babes show. I forgot entirely to give you one of my cosplay cards so that we could keep in touch. Darn it.

Perhaps you or one of your friends can get me your name so that we can be friends on facebook. Just to make sure you’re the same person, tell me what military uniform you were wearing.

D*C Blue Belly Dancer outfit – w4w – 23 (Drum Circle)

Date: 2011-09-06, 11:52PM EDT

I’m looking for an AA girl, shorter in height, who attended the drum circle this year at DragonCon, and last years too. She had on a blue shirt and a blue wrap around her shorts that jingled. Amazing dancer! The first time I saw her was last years D*C in a belly dancing instruction room.

If this is you, please tell me what color your socks and sneakers were, what I said to you when I passed you in the Drum Circle (you were on the floor, spreading out/untangling your wrap) or send a picture so I can confirm its you.

Picture attached is me, you may recognize me. (Yes, I am female in case you were wondering.)

Dragon*Con – m4m – 35 (Hilton)

Date: 2011-09-06, 1:39PM EDT

We were in a game together one morning after we’d both been up all night in different games. Our characters had a connection and so did we. There were signs of interest but I was too tired to recognize them until after. Brushing legs under the table and asking what my plans were didn’t click at first. I know you probably won’t see this but maybe I’ll see you next year.

Missed the Time Travelers Ball – m4w

Date: 2011-09-05, 11:38PM EDT

We met at Dragon*Con and chatted before the Carrie Fisher panel. You were dressed as 40′s era and I as Rory. I didn’t get a chance to meet you at the Time Travelers Ball.

Geeks have sex, too

Venture over to the casual encounters section of Craigslist for the kinkier side of Dragon Con. A more complete preview to come once I adjourn to my home computer, as some of these ads are bit blue — and I’m not talking the Na’vi.

Attractive professional guy in town Thursday thru Monday for Dragon*Con (dragoncon) looking for a submissive counterculture geek boy for an exciting fling at at the convention.

We’re a cool young couple looking for a cool young female. Last Dragoncon we talked about how awesome it would be to pick up a girl and bring up up to our room. This year we’re gonna stop talking and do it.

Cool, smart, slightly nerdy, attractive bi male looking for some wild times over DragonCon weekend. Looking for a fun couple, or maybe a sexy girl for some wild swinging. I am, as stated before, bi – but I prefer to have a sexy girl as the center of attention (so sorry, single boys). I’m white, tattoos, and HWP (not ripped, but not fluffy either). Let’s see how kinky we can get!

The oddest weekend on Atlanta’s convention calendar

'I think that black gay guy is hitting on you.'

It’s that time of year again. Dragon-Con attendees, Black Gay Pride celebrants and fans attending the Chik-fil-A Kickoff Game will converge on downtown Atlanta this weekend for Mega-Super Diversity Expo 2011. 

In a related note, those  interested in the mating habits of sci-fi geeks should check out Craig’s List for a good laugh.

A douchebag geek hippie responds

Being a geek, I will close this by invoking the Silmarillion: Morgoth destroyed the Two Trees and provoked the Noldor into atrocities and self-destruction. Yet even after he was thrust through the Door of Night and into the Timeless Void, the seeds of evil that he planted remained to bear dark fruit until the end of days. Likewise with Bin Laden: He didn’t start US imperialism, but he did light the fuse for a very ugly chapter in the history of US imperialism, a chapter that will continue even after his death.

Yes, he has a ponytail.
