I’ve always thought my most geek defining characteristic was not my love of comic books or sci-fi, but that of musical comedy. Sure, everyone enjoys watching a good parody on SNL or YouTube occasionally, but how many have their iPod full of comedic music albums?
Like most geeks I cut my death on the genre with the king, Mr. “Weird Al” Yankovic. Yes, you’ll find his complete discography on my iPod. While I find Al’s more recent work a bit disappointing (which I mostly blame on the fact that he is parodying current top 40 songs, which I hate), I can still put on Dare To Be Stupid and laugh my ass off.

The story that even touched the cold heart of Ryan Garcia is going from documentary to feature film.
Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around The World premièred today at the Slamdance Film festival, but it looks like we’ll be getting another movie telling the story of Miles Scott’s awesome Make-A-Wish Foundation-sponsored day as Batkid from Julia Roberts, who according to Deadline has closed a deal to produce and star in a feature adaptation. On November 15, 2013, 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott got his wish to be the Caped Crusader granted when thousands of volunteers helped turn San Francisco into Gotham City for a day.
Here’s hoping Julia Roberts isn’t so vain and self-absorbed that she wants to play Batkid himself!
