Guardians of the Geekery Episode 12
Things to Note:
- Peter Tork was heartbroken to find out that Al Bigley liked him least. He’s currently in the corner in a fetal position.
- Al Bigley and Tiffany have not yet reached a financial agreement on the Tiffany-Henry Cavill fetish comic. If this changes, we will update you forwith!
- It’s true, Starneslord has authored comics – you can buy it HERE. (Or you can buy it from him directly at one of the local comic conventions!)
- Sorry about the coughing, we don’t edit. If we did, half of what giddygeeker said would never get on air!
- Tiffany asked if Branson was a prison, in case you missed that. Missourians, do you think that is accurate?
- Good news! According to the NC Film website, we evidently might have some new film incentives. Maybe Henry Cavill will film here and run in to Tiffany at Harris Teeter!
- We are sorry we posted the book club info late – but they meet every month – to find out the current book, look for it at www.meetup.com/The-Charlotte-Geeks
- Al Bigley shared this blog post with us about Leonard Nimoy. You can also read an article by Charlotte Geeks’ own Jim Craig HERE.
