Well kids, if its late July the geeks are convening in sunny Southern California.
That’s right, its Comic-Con weekend in San Diego. And while we at the ‘Geek were able to secure press credentials for the mecca of all geekdom, due to timing issues we were unable to get there.
That doesn’t mean we haven’t enjoyed reading the press releases and marvelling at the missed opportunities (an interview with Pauly Shore? Christopher Daniels? Elvira?).
Discussions have been had. Plans have been tentativised. Next year kids. Next year, we at the ‘Geek will bring it to you first hand.
Until then we’ll just have to do our part with this week’s cheesecake.
Say hello to Lynda Carter, better known to a certain generation of American males as Wonder Woman.
Spinning her way into our homes and our collective consciousness in 1975, Ms. Carter came to epitomize the DC Comics Amazonian princess for decades. Why, I still remember a summer vacation at my grandmother’s house during which I read the local paper and it mentioned that Ms. Carter and Farrah Fawcett would appear on a new show called Battle of the Network Stars and they would both be wearing swimsuits. I asked my dad if we could watch it that night. He didn’t hesitate to say yes.
Gread guy my dad.
Remind me to tell you the Risky Business story sometime.
But I digress.
Despite a recent costume change in the comics, Ms. Carter’s iconic portrayal of Wonder Woman makes her our choice for cheesecake this week as we sit at our desks lamenting what might have been.
On to the links. (more…)
