“Hold tight and pretend it’s a plan!” — The Doctor
Some of the most adored pop culture teams are the ones that came together by chance. Whether it’s The Avengers, the rebel alliance, the ragtag gang of the Firefly Serenity, or the crew of the stranded starship Voyager, accidental circumstance have led to some of the most beloved story-telling in pop-culture. While I’d never suggest to be on par with Mal, Han, or (dare I say) Captain Janeway, recently I did find myself, by pure chance, in the frequent company of some likeminded individuals seemingly brought together by fate. Like the synergy of those fictional teams we all seemed to fanatically pine for, the combined effect of our individual force was greater than the sum of those individual passions. All we needed was an outlet, and that outlet is Outright Geekery.
“Do you wanna come with me? It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe, and it won’t be calm. But I’ll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime!” – The Doctor
You’re going to see the usual geek and nerd related revelry on Outright Geekery, but we want to be more. News, reviews, previews and speculation on everything under the geek sun from Avengers to Who and everything in-between. Along with the typical character highlights, versus threads and Top 10 lists, Outright Geekery will be a hub for a strong and growing assembly of blogs, podcasts and websites focusing on comics, movies, TV and overall geek culture. But we’re not going to stop there! Our main principle at Outright Geekery is to “embrace the geek” in all that it entails. You’ll see Warhammer and Magic: The Gathering tutorials right alongside New Avengers reviews and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. previews. We at Outright Geekery are all-inclusive geeks, but that attitude does not stop with our content.
