Geekdom Madness: Wild Child Victor

Sniped at the last second!

The Victor for the twelfth round of the preliminaries is:

Stewie Griffin
"When the world is mine, your death shall be quick and painless."
Out of 11 votes, Stewie got 55% to Kenny's 45%. Kenny had been in the lead up to this morning, when some last minute votes allowed Stewie to just squeak by.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Geekdom Madness: Game Night Victor

Well that went by fast, didn't it?

The Victor for the eleventh round of the preliminaries is:

Sonic the Hedgehog
"Live fast, think fast, act fast!"

Out of a piddling 8 votes, Sonic sped by with 75% of the vote while Axel (or is it Lea again now?) teleported away with 25%.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Who's up for Chili Dogs?

Without Computers Redux

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

I haven’t spoken much about the developing details of Episode VII, and I will discuss the very real reasons for this in an upcoming article. With that being said, one thing that Star Wars communities keep talking about for the last month or so is the glut of photos of practical effects, sets, and creature puppets that J.J. Abrams and his team are showing to get the fans excited. The clear meme here being: “We’re using good old-fashioned elbow grease with this film, not like those OTHER movies that were mainly CGI.”

Surprisingly, many sections of the fanbase have actually wizened up. First of all correctly saying how laughable the idea is that a big-budget director in this day and age will avoid using CGI entirely (especially J.J. “Cloverfield/Star Trek” Abrams). But more to the point, there have now been several incredible editorials, even from people who don’t like Episodes I-III, that are showing photo galleries of the myriad of practical effects used in those films in spite of hater party line we’ve been hearing since 1999.

Geekdom Madness: Burtonesque Victor

What's this?

The Victor for the tenth round of the preliminaries is none other than:

Jack Skellington
"There are few who deny: at what I do, I am the best!"
Out of 10 votes, Jack got 60% while Edward got 40%.

Edward had an early lead, but Jack slowly overtook him. Not much else to say, except that I hope everyone is still having a good time with these.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

I can't make decisions by myself!

So I sent my latest article in, but due to its....intricacy, Jedi News needs another week to deal with it. Therefore it'll be at least another week before I post it here.

Don't worry, I haven't stopped.

Geekdom Madness: Super Smash Brothers Victor

Well, I am quickly seeing what side my readers' bread is buttered on.

The victor for the ninth round of the preliminaries is:

"Here we go!"

Out of a total of 11 votes, Luigi received 64% of the vote while Mewtwo only received 36%.

It's really interesting to me just how often my own picks are losing in this competition so far. Which is fine, since I specifically wanted my readers' picks. It's actually fun seeing how different things turn out, even if I'm disappointed with my champions falling. Besides, there are only a handful of characters in this competition that aren't amongst my favorites in their respective franchises (why else do you think I entered Luigi as opposed to his brother?). I really hope the voting goes up from here and we're able to maintain this level of excitement by the time the finals roll around.

Anyway, here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

I also love seeing this thing slowly fill up, even if the blog doesn't do it justice
