List Week: A Variety of Geek Lists

List WeekLIST WEEK concludes here at ONCE UPON A GEEK.  This time out I’ve assembled a handful of lists to help you get through your Friday.  If you’ve got any great lists you’d like to add, feel free to drop them in the comments for everyone to enjoy!

From the Houston Chronicle online comes “Fifteen geek movies to see before you die”.  One writers opinion of the top Must-Watch-for-Geek-Cred movies.  There are definitely a few surprises here, such as “12 Monkeys” and “Repo Man”.

From Right Wing News comes “The Top 10 Worst Geek Pick-Up Lines“.  Mostly Star Trek and Star Wars references, but still a fun list.

From Christian’s & Scott’s Interactive Top Ten List comes “Top Ten Differences between Nerds and Geeks“.  Great list.  I especially love #5.

From my buddy Stuart Renton comes “Ten TV Shows I Wish They Would Bring Back“.  This is a great list!  Check out the comments for my thoughts on these particular shows.  A follow-up to that post is “Ten TV Shows They Should Never Bring Back

Finally from Scott Johnson, creator and artist for ExtraLife, comes “The 56 Geeks Project“.  This is a really interesting project.  It started out as a doodle or two Johnson did in a sketchbook.  He was just jotting down some of his favorite geeky stereotypes and thought, “why not flesh this out a bit and do a bunch of them?”.  He stopped at 56 geeks because that’s what he could fit on a 20×30 inch poster.  Click here to see the full-size image.

That’s all for now.  Thanks for reading!

    In that 56 Geeks Project poster, it looks like most of them are nerds or dweebs, not geeks. Somewhere on the interwebs there’s a venn diagram that explains the difference.

    Dorks are represented as well… the other three types are different animals from geeks, as all geeks know.
