London SantaCon 2008 [liveblog] London SantaCon 2008 [liveblog]
My first attempt at liveblogging, using only my iPhone and Twitter. Looking back it would have been nice to have more space for witty comments, but the links took too many characters and I was too inebriated. Hope you enjoyed!

Pre-London SantaCon 2008 Liveblog Pre-London SantaCon 2008 Liveblog
Ho ho ho, hello there boys and girls! Tomorrow we’ll be trying something new here at the Geek Prospectus, a liveblogging of Grimbil’s annual SantaCon mischief. What is SantaCon, you ask? Simply the best day of the year, every year! At least for me over the past 5 years. First it was in NYC,...

Anniversary: The Geekiest Thing Grimbil Has Ever Done Anniversary: The Geekiest Thing Grimbil Has Ever Done
Back in the summer 1991, a chance visit to the Mississippi State University Library introduced me to the amazing Internet. While looking up a book on the library computer system, I met a guy who was playing a MUD, or Multi User Dungeon. Think of it as the precursor to World of Warcraft. Hundreds of people...

Behind the Scenes [politics] Behind the Scenes [politics]
As the political events of this month have begun to settle, I want to turn your attention back a few years to the Clinton administration. Joe Lockhart became the Press Secretary for the Clinton White House on the day Clinton was impeached. Talk about a rough day. He shares what happens on his first day...

The New Poll Tax [politics] The New Poll Tax [politics]
This Rachel Maddow video is a must watch. The new poll tax. Believe it or not, this is my #1 reason for hating Bush. Twice we have gone through an election process that was fundamentally broken. Here we are, eight years after the Supreme Court pronounced the winner of the Presidential election and our...

An Open Letter to America’s President and Congress [rant] An Open Letter to America’s President and Congress [rant]
Dear Congress and George W. Bush, Fuck you. Fuck you and your dumb ass Energy Policy Act of 2005. Do you have any idea the headaches you cause across the globe now because of this dumb ass idea? For those of us who don’t work solely within the collapsing economic bubble of the United States of...

Pwned! [politics] Pwned! [politics]
I have the feeling that his expression is not an unusual one in the McCain camp these days. I found McCain’s blinking to be a bit distracting, so I tried to count em in this clip….28 for Obama, 60 for McCain. Also, dude….Sarah Palin’s baby has Down’s syndrome, not autism....

What I’d like to hear from the candidates tonight [politics] What I’d like to hear from the candidates tonight [politics]
So tonight is the final debate, and Obama is leading in just about every poll out there, and many of them by double digits. Nobody is saying it outright, but many are hinting at saying that this one is in the bag for Senator Obama. The big news over the past week has been about Obama’s ties to...

Tony Jaa – Out of the Jungle [movies] Tony Jaa – Out of the Jungle [movies]
If you haven’t heard of Tony Jaa, you’re missing out on one of the best martial artists of our generation. Sure, Jet Li and Jackie Chan have more popular appeal, but honestly, I can’t stand watching Jet Li because of all the constant camera cuts, and Jackie Chan is just too nice…he...

Get Your War On [politics] Get Your War On [politics]
I’m not sure how long Get Your War On has been doing animated videos (or if this is even an official GYWO vid), but I’ve been a fan of the strip for quite a few years. This is brilliant. 1,000,000 terrorists vs the USA.
