Unfortunately, despite Jason’s great creative talent More >
We at Speak Geeky To Me decided to skip the traditional trickery played out on this fun day here in 2013.

We considered posting about Orson Scott Card being hired at Marvel to write an on-going series involving a gay Hyperion or even mentioning George Lucas’ agreement with Bob Iger to make Star Wars Land in Des Moines, Iowa. But in the end, we just More >
