Upcoming g33k Year & Holiday Traditions – g33kWatch Podcast

That is quite the geeky Christmas tree!That is quite the geeky Christmas tree!I was going to spend this entire post talking about a whole host of different topics, but just as I was about to write it, the tragedy in Newton, CT happened.  This Podcast should have been up on Friday, but alas, I just didn’t feel right in posting any content or adding to the noise over social media.  There are a lot of people out there, who had a lot on their mind, and it just didn’t feel right to try and promote a Podcast.

All of us here at g33kWatch send our deepest sympathies and prayers to all those affected by this horrific event.

For this Podcast, which was recorded the day before the Connecticut shooting, we talk about our trip to the Child’s Play Charity Dinner Auction,  the site’s upcoming website content change, and some of the geeky traditions we have during the holidays.  Listen in as Katie talks about how many coats her mother has bought her, the fun for Mr. Khon in not using building instructions, and how I had to keep myself occupied on Christmas Day as a kid.

The upcoming content shift is also going to be important because while it may end up being less content overall, we hope it will be a lot more entertaining.  What can you expect during a particular month?  Glad you asked, here’s a potential breakdown!

  1. It’s a soda. Now stop fucking dropping it.

    *steps onto soap box*

    And Katie, you or someone will need to explain make up to me at some point. I was really hoping you were going to say you didn’t wear make up almost ever because you were the one chick on the planet that saw make up for what it was – a lie and form of dehumanization, invented (I’m guessing) by men a long time ago but continued by women now that implies that women are inherently ugly and need to mask their true appearance to “appear” but never “be” attractive. But at least you not wearing it a lot is a step in the right direction. Joey and Yogi looked bad-fucking-ass and James-Bond-gorgeous in those Child’s Play pictures, and (correct me if I’m wrong) they didn’t doll themselves up by putting a bunch of shit on their face. You looking great in those Child’s Play dinner pictures – and all of you g33k gals looking great in any goddamn pictures – has nothing to do with makeup, and you certainly don’t need it to justify speaking to Wil “The Site Breaker” Wheaton or anyone else for that matter.

  2. The closing music is so good. Classy and sexy. I like it.
