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.
