Sometimes I forget how much I love today’s Geek Crush, and then he shows up voicing a character in an animated series or doing an Ask Me Anything on Reddit and I totally remember why I love Dante Basco.

Geek Crush: Jared Padalecki

It’s Wednesday night, which can only mean one thing (well, for 22 weeks of the year) – I’m watching Supernatural. I may be a teensy bit obsessed with this show, but, seriously, how can a geek girl not be? It has monsters, unexplained events, other worlds, time travel, demons, angels, geek references galore, and the […]

Geek Crush: Benedict Cumberbatch

I first fell for today’s crush’s name without ever knowing anything about him. When a friend finally sat me down and forced me (it really wasn’t as tough as it sounds) to watch Sherlock – well it was all over. Today we’re all about Benedict Cumberbatch.

Geek Crush: Zachary Levi

Most of the time, television shows are terrible at getting geek right. However, every once in a while, a show comes along that just hits it right on. Chuck was one of those shows. It wasn’t incredibly well watched, but the fans held it in high regard, and it had a pretty impressive internet following. […]

Back in the day, I watched a lot of Hercules and Xena. The Mothership and I may have been a little obsessed. Kevin Sorbo may have been a little hot. However it happened, it served as my first introduction to a man that would have a surprisingly influence on the rest of my life. On […]

Geek Crush: Jorge Cham

When I first started grad school, it was crazy. You move into a whole new world with research and teaching and classes and most new grad students feel entirely overwhelmed. Fortunately, a friend introduced me to the greatest thing a grad student can possibly discover: a new source of procrastination. This source happened to also […]

Geek Crush: Ben Folds

I’m a piano player. Like many children, my mother started me on the piano when I was seven. However, unlike many children (Dawn and Gardella included), for me it stuck. Being the type of person and geek that I am though, I couldn’t just be a normal, classically trained piano player. No. I quit classical […]

Geek Crush: Wil Wheaton

When I was about 10, I fell in love with Wil Wheaton. Okay, technically, I fell in love with Wesley Crusher. I don’t understand what girl wouldn’t fall for him. Wesley was adorable, super smart, funny, and always trying to help everybody. How would I have ever known when I was 10, however, that almost […]

Geek Crush: Mark Sheppard

Sometimes, you run across a guest actor who is simply incredible and amazing. Then, you run into them again, and again, and again. This is the character actor on all your favorite geeky shows. They probably spend a fair amount of in or around Vancouver. Then you start to follow them on twitter. Then you […]
