I didn't tell you about the computer game I picked up? It's loosely based on D&D (albeit in a comic form) about gadgets in space. It's CRAZYGONUTS!

I've been in a movie desert recently. Didn't watch any movies in June. So I am looking forward to Moon.

Not much D&D to talk about. I blame the OP for that.

Computer gaming - I'm playing through Diablo 1 for the first time. It's mildly entertaining, but a surprisingly short single-player game.

Comics (and D&D) - I'm reading through my collection of Knights of the Dinner Table trades. On book 4 now. Still entertaining, but *very* niche.

SciFi - The new SciFi series (Warehouse 13) starts tomorrow night. The DVR's already programmed to record it.

Computers - Ummm...my PC is old, and I'm very much dragging my feet on building a new one.

Gadgets - Again, no news on that front, either. Sigh...

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

The Patrick Cudahy Bacon company had a major fire today.

Imagine the loss of all that Sweet-Apple-Wood Bacon...

*moment of silence*

And it doesn't smell like bacon or baked ham, either. It smells like ammonia. Enough so that they are considering shutting down Mitchell Int'l Airport.

Here's a gadget - for those that are afraid of being hit with a $100 over-the-weight-limit luggage fee, when a second piece of luggage only costs an additional $25. I give you the Balanzza Ergonomic Digital Luggage Scale!!

I rarely, if ever, play games on my computer. And I haven't played many video games recently either.

I haven't bought a comic book in over 10 years.

I'm not bringing up the subject because I don't want people to rag on me for enjoying Transformers 2.

I never got into role-playing games.

Can't speak for everyone else, but I'm someone who apparently is only a "geek" when it comes to boardgames. So if you want to find the geeky talk on this website...check the gaming forums.

My Chaos Team on the PC version of Blood Bowl would get me punched in the face if I played it face to face. I managed to kill or cripple 10 players on a Wood Elf team and I did it on purpose. If someone did that to me in league play, I would probably break down and weep.

My 4th edition fighter, Bertold Bosch, gets the shit pounded out of him every game and then everyone pats me on the back and tells me I did a great job. I love a game in which my whole purpose is to get my bell rung so that you don't have to. I made him solely as my protest because I wanted to play Warhammer FRP. He is grimly grim and does everything grimly. He is basically the most cliched 13 year old boy character ever, turned up to eleven. Getting the shit kicked out of me and being grim with a Teutonic accent is gaming gold for me. My compatriots that play D&D with no irony whatsoever think there is something very wrong with me.

Is that geeky enough?

Here's one of my current Geek projects. I've been scanning most of my film negatives into my computer with a Nikon Super CoolScan 5000 scanner.

About 10 years ago I always made it a point to get a Picture CD or Photo CD (or one of the floppy disk versions) along with my film processing. It's amazing how my Nikon scans are so much better than those store bought scans. I'm enjoying lots of old photos in a new light lately.

Dude, he didn't say role-playing games, he said D&D.

So this is what it's like to troll. Hmm...
