Geek Lit: The Girl From The Well

51mcuAwu50L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

I’m generally not one for horror.  I was a jumpy kid, and horror movies–even dumb ones–were often too much for me.  I’ve gotten a bit better since then, but as much as I don’t care much for horror movies, I do greatly enjoy horror novels.  Why that is I cannot say, but it may be that there is something comforting about the page that isn’t as visually worrisome as the motion picture.

I recently read author Rin Chupeco’s debut novel The Girl from the Well.  Review and potential SPOILERS behind the cut.

86 BAZOOKA

Gabbing Geek is a global media empire.  A fan (and friend) from Japan, Naoko, sent the following message about a hot new act on the other side of the Pacific.  

Naoko writes, “Just wanted to share for the purpose of Gabbing Geek, 86 BAZOOKAA is trendy for young people.

Check out the video after the break.

Akira_110

AKIRA!!!!!!! For those of you that listened to our “Expanding Your Geek” (episode 8) on the podcast you will note that NONE of us loved the movie Akira. I don’t know, the anime film just wasn’t Oscar material. Maybe it was the wacko-jacko story line, or the lack of respect for female characters, or maybe it was because the whole thing was BAT-SHIT-CRAZY! But you’ll be interested to find out that despite the fact that we HATED the film, there are those out there that loved it. And it’s because of that said love that director Jaume Collet-Serra started talks of a reboot. Nooooooooooooooooooo!
