Screw you JMS! 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 … Continue reading Friday LinkFrogging – 7/23/10
Welcome back kids. It has been quite a week here at homebase. I lost a load of links when I lost my PC. I'm not sure how that's going to affect our final count today, but we'll see. We also welcome a new Geek to the herd this week. Aamir comes to us on a … Continue reading Friday LinkFrogging – 12/11/09
Well, not in real life. But he plays a Jeffrey Dahmer victim in new 'slasher comedy' 'Dahmer vs. Gacy.' You can see Adler very briefly around the :41 and 1:03 marks in the trailer for the Ford Austin movie. Adler reportedly first gets picked up and then killed with a drill to the head by Dahmer. I wish I … Continue reading Steven Adler’s Dead!

It was a long time for you It was a long time for me - "There Was a Time" Just shut up and sing - "Sorry" Let's just get this over with from the start. This album is NOT "Appetite for Destruction." That perfect storm ended 20 years ago. This album is also not "Use Your … Continue reading “Chinese Democracy” – the review

Mr. Klosterman, a self-professed GNR fan, reviews the long awaited and much delayed album right here. Enjoy.

As it was, one day was … Continue reading Rock the Bayou – Day 1
