Happy science fiction Day, geeks! Well, actually, it was yesterday, but let’s not let that stop us from celebrating the only genre of fiction wherein anything and everything is totally within the realm of possibility. 2012 gave us some great geeky sci-fi flicks – the awesome, twisted commentary of Cabin in The Woods, the straight-up coolness of Looper, the “big questions” and sexy, empowered lady stars of Prometheus. Of course, 2012 had some amazing moments in real, actual science and society as well.
Since the new year is still, well, new, I thought it would be a good time to set out a few super-geeky resolutions. Add yours in the comments!
I will actually watch all of the lower-budget/under the radar films on I09’s best science fiction/fantasy movies of 2012 list.
I’ll read the three fantasy novels that have been on my bookshelf for the past year, and finally make good on my personal promise to myself to go beyond the Songs of Ice and Fire series in the genre.
I will actually play all the Humble Indie Bundle games I’ve purchased in the last year (of which there are about 17 I haven’t even started).
I will spend more of my geeky reading time checking out books/documentaries about actual science.
What about you, geeks? Do you have any big dork resolutions for 2013?
