I’m a geek. I don’t deny this. I embrace this. And I love the YouTube channel Geek and Sundry.
Last year when they renewed for a second season, the brilliant, fabulous, sexy, gorgeous, amazing head of G&S posted this video.
I loved that little speech. It’s very true that people these days are using Geek as an advertising campaign, but we’re more than that. I don’t think I could say it any better than she does.
“Geek means an outsider, a rebel, a dreamer, a creator – whether it’s our own world or someone else’s. It’s a fighter, it’s a person who dares to love something that isn’t conventional. The mantra of geek to me is “your judgement is not my problem.” You think comics are dumb? Fine. You think I may not be a real gamer? Whatever, that’s your problem. I think we need to re-own geek.”
Long Live Geek!
