    This Week In Geek 3/12

    A good friend rocked my world this week when he sent me a link to something that made my skin crawl. Apparently there have been sightings of what is being referred to as “A creepy gnome” in a small town in South America and now a group of kids have caught the gnome on video. You can see the video here: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article902014.ece

    This Week in Geek 2/20 Zorro returns!

    If you’re a nerd in your late 20’s to early 30’s like me then you probably spent last Sunday night watching the American Gladiator finals (hosted by Hulk Hogan) and the premiere of Knight Rider. Now when I first heard that NBC was bringing back American Gladiators I thought to myself “dear god, what new horrors will the writer strike unleash next?”.
