Random Geekery

ggg past and present mascot

Two years ago today I started Girl Gone Geek Blog. It began with just my friends and family reading it, and has slowly taken on a life of its own. It has grown into a 2-year-old baby geekling (23 in blog years), and I couldn’t have done it without you. As you are probably well aware, I’m pretty obsessed with a lot of things. I started this blog because I wanted to talk about my many obsessions because I couldn’t keep it all bottled up inside me. I had no expectations with my blog. I just hoped some people would…

Picture of the Week and Contest- X-Men 80’s Patrick Nagel Designs

Apparel Art Comics Picture of the Week

I bet you thought this post would come with leg warmers and shoulder pads, nope! Just totally gnarly X-Men apparel from Mighty Fine (welovefine.com) from their 80’s Art Fashion Series. These bodacious X-Men babes are inspired by the 1980’s minimalistic illustration style of Patrick Nagel. The day I discovered welovefine.com was the same day I ordered a Storm Nagel-inspired shirt (and Phoenix for a friend’s birthday gift). The icing on the cake was when I received my package in the mail and not only did I get my shirts but also they threw in some great Mighty Fine swag. It included a big bag with Hello Kitty on one…

Picture of the Week- National Mario Kart League and Interview with the Artist Rodrigo Ferreira

Apparel Art Picture of the Week Videogames Wear

*Mario voice* “Here we go!” This weeks PotW is also the design for the week-long contest I’m having. To see how you can win visit the CONTEST post.  The NMKL (National Mario Kart League) design was created by Rodrigo Ferreira, which combines sports logo design with my all time favorite racing game Mario Kart ( which is also the only racing video game I like). I think the combination is perfect considering the intense competitiveness MK can bring out of a player and the ritual victory dances after a win which are reminiscent of end zone dances after an impressive touchdown. My brother and…

CONTEST: Win a Doctor Who shirt from Threadless!

Apparel Movies & Television Sci-fi/ Cyberpunk

You all are fully aware of how much a massive Doctor Who fan I am. I literally waited in line for over 6 hours on two separate occasions mind you for DW related events and to meet the main cast and Steven Moffat (you can read about that here and here). Where’s my (#DWlineCon peeps at?!). That’s some serious obsession right there!   My Facebook page and Twitter is practically a continuous love letter to Doctor Who. I want to thank all my fellow Whovians for emailing me Tennant LOL cats, tweet-a-thons, Facebook gush-a-thons, sending me Doctor Who episodes that haven’t…
