The Assassination of Lord British

It seems to me that In every geek's life, there seems to be a defining moment, a moment of clarity that either drives you away from your hobbies of choice and pushes you into the arms of popular societal norms of watching reality TV and going to bed at 10, or one that cements your status as a someone who's proud to stand outside 'normal' pop culture lines and say, 'I'm so frigging glad I'm not them.'

Seeing as the geek culture that most of us know and love only really started toward the early '80s, it's not like we have generations of examples to pull from. Speaking from personal experience, I've watched quite a few potential geeks that seemed to give up on it and simply took their place in the rat race without even so much of a struggle. It was like a jacket that they could take off, hang up and never look back at again.

SnowCon 2013

Five years of fun and games

ORONO For the fifth straight year gamers from across Maine, New England and the United States will gather at the Black Bear Inn to crawl through ancient dungeons, cast arcane spells, try to evade insidious madness and barter for sheep or lumber. SnowCon is back.

This is a weekend of live gaming, as opposed to video gaming. It's people around a table rolling dice, playing cards or moving pieces, whether it's role playing games (RPGs), strategic board games or various card games (think of everything from 'Magic: the Gathering' to 'Apples to Apples').

Quit it.

Just stop. Move along. Vamoose. Take your sitcom and leave.
