Literary geeks, rejoice! They’ve made a film about John Keats. I’m a Romantic poetry fangirl, I totally admit it. As a young English geek (and later, English major geek) I came across the Romantics in high school, and up until that point I had never read anything so profound. The language was so beautiful, the […]
By Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] I had the geeky joy of spending last weekend at Dragon*Con in Atlanta. It’s known for being one of the best cons for costumes, probably because it’s so broad – everything from the traditional Klingons to the crazygothpunk to the increasingly trendy steampunk (and of course, obligatory Stormtroopers).

The contest asked attendees to “commit acts of lust” and provide photographic evidence on Twitter. So was this just a way […]
By Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] Comic Con 2009 is nearing an end, and though I am sadly not in attendance, the majority of my Twitter feed (and I’m pretty sure about half of the Internet) is busy partying down with what seems like every geek-friendly celebrity you can tick off on your fingers.
