I was perusing the magazine rack at the bookstore last night (they unchain me from the computer for one hour a night so I can forage for sustenance), and I came across a really cool magazine called Geek Monthly. Naturally, I was drawn to it like Willow to dark magic, or like my high school boyfriend Kevin to an astronomy lab (yeah, I went for the smart ones even back then – wrong gender, maybe, but still smart).
Check out these cool features in the first issue alone:
And answers to all the important geeky entertainment questions, like, why do DVD commentaries suck, and what’s up with all the good TV shows on ABC Family lately? Plus, a list of “thespians as bright as Jodie Foster,” with Jennifer Beals at the top.
And even though it’s slanted slightly towards male readers, it’s not overbearingly so – they have female writers, and this edition’s “Geek of the Month” is a girl. Then there are the ads featuring cute girls in Atari-branded t-shirts and jeans playing arcade games…It’s like I’ve died and gone to geek heaven! Where they have cute geeky video-game-playing girl angels, apparently.
