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.

A douchebag geek hippie responds

(via Andrew Sullivan) 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.

I yield the culture to sci-fi geeks

Do I have a choice? I was just informed of the inspiration for the popular hashtag (God I feel smarmy) #Hothlanta. Sayeth Wikipedia: In the fictional universe of Star Wars, Hoth is the sixth planet of a remote system of the same name. It is a world blanketed by snow and ice. I proudly claim no knowledge of or interest in pretend universes. Most people used to think that way. We should be the ones with most popular hashtag (gross). I warned you people, back in 2003 Remember the Star Trek juror, the Arkansas woman who wore a Starfleet uniform during the…

Here come the nerds!

Homer Simpson: As a jock, it is my duty to give nerds a hard time Downtown will be crawling with them this weekend for DragonCon. I forecast their ascension in this column that appeared in the AJC on 12/29/03: Remember the Star Trek juror, the Arkansas woman who wore a Starfleet uniform during the Whitewater trial? Yes, we all had a good laugh at her expense. Little did we know that within five years she’d be among Hollywood’s prized demographic. Without warning, a confederacy of geeks has taken over the popular culture. “The Matrix.” “X-Men.” The latest chapter in the trolls and…

Save us, white man, before you kill again

Perhaps when you spend most of your time fantasizing about life on other planets you fail to understand life on your own. I have no interest in seeing movies written by James Cameron, let alone ones that recycle a patronizing theme: White man as villain and savior (see “Pocohantas,” “Mississippi Burning” and about 500 other Hollywood movies). I don’t think Cameron is a racist — just clueless (though I wonder about his fellow sci-fi geek, George Lucas, creator of the Jar Jar Binks “characterature”).
