Schlock’s Blogs

Welcome to another Sunday with Schlock. This week we are proud (and relieved) to present THE DEATH OF THE GEEK!

Follow four Schlockers, as they attempt to explain the demise of geekdom and hint at the birth of something a little more interesting… and a lot less familiar.

Read, comment, share the Schlock.

get yerself to Davey Jones, villainous rubber duckie geek!

First up, Krista takes an oblique approach. Panic erupts in the countryside as the geek-phenomenon gets out of hand!

In the wake of geek-death, Teodor proposes some startling alternatives.

Noel takes a look at Kick-Ass (2010) and asks “does the modern geek just want more (much more)?”

Bringing up the ranks, Marco‘s penned a wake-up call manifesto aimed at the collective consciousness of Geekdom.

Thus the dark night is ended and it’s time for mourning – Geeks may be dead and buried but who (or what) lies in wait ready to replace them?
