There have always been two very distinct camps; those that love Halo, and those that love Gears of War. Just when you thought there may be peace, Epic goes and throws down the proverbial nerd gauntlet. This is pretty much the equivalent of a hip hop “diss”.
I owe Attack of the Show a lot (No, G4 doesn’t pay my bills or anything like that). What AOTS does do, is keep me sane. The self proclaimed “…only source for all the stuff you care about” is about to undergo a massive relaunch, and we here at Nerd Appropriate could not be more excited.
Don’t have time to really go over this, as I’m walking out the door for work, but Amy Okuda tweeted this amazing video that I think should be shared. It’s only 3 minutes long.
Most of you by now have seen Judd Apatow’s masterpiece Freaks and Geeks. For those that haven’t, Freaks and Geeks was a shamefully short-lived comedy/drama that originally aired on NBC in 1999.

I’m a convention nerd. I pretty much always have been. My first convention was at a local Holiday Inn in Fort Myers Florida. It featured “Q” from Star Trek the Next Generation and Buck Rogers star Erin Grey. I remember loving it, even though by today’s convention standards it was pretty awful. I’ve also managed to make it out to my fair share of Comic Cons in San Diego. For those that have not been, it’s the nerd version of the Hajj. Every once in a while you’ll luck out at a convention and capture a really amazing moment.
While we won’t be at CES 2011 (sadly we have to work), we will be covering as much “nerd appropriate” content as we possibly can.

M.O.D.O.K the (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) is a Marvel Comics super-villain that was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee way back in 1967. That makes M.O.D.O.K a whopping 43 years old!
