    Interesting (so far- I'm just a couple pages in) paper I just found that is tangentially related to this:

A particularly notable site of this negotiation is in fashion, where t-shirt designers, online cartoonists, and computer programmers have constructed a market of identity apparel for their fellow geeks. This paper takes an ethnographic and textual analytic approach to the clothing marketed to and worn by the "smart masses," to quote one online store's tagline.

    Ha. The only time I have a problem with others saying they're a geeky comic fan is when I try to hold a conversation with them and turns out I'm the only one who knows what I'm talking about. Just reminds me again how hard it is to find someone I have things in common with and usually right when I'd adjusted to likely never finding it. Re-open another scar, asshole!

    I'm not a trekkie by any means, but I'm definitely thinking about wearing my Captain Kirk costume to the new movie. The opportunity rarely presents itself, aside from Halloween, and I'm not going to be the same character every year.

    My Ghostbusters fandom was a turnoff (almost deal-breaker) to a particular woman when she found out that I have a uniform and cosplay gear. I assured her that my love for Ghostbusters far outweighs my concern for what anyone thinks about it. With that said, she relented. We're going on a date tonight.

    If you ever have a yard sale and have the Kirk costume in it, I'm there.

    It was relatively cheap. About $40 online from a costume store. I'm sure there will be plenty available this year around Halloween with the new sequel coming out.

    Clearly this wonder woman is just there to prey on weak-willed nerds.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Hahaha! Not the costume I had in mind, but I'll take that into consideration.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
