Well, everyone on Twitter and Facebook is probably tired of reading about this, but my segment on Spike TV’s “All Access Weekly” aired last night and it’s now available to watch online.
Here’s the video (my segment begins around the 3:02 mark):
Now that you’ve watched it, here’s my question for you: Since I’ve now been referred to as a “Professional Geek” by ABC News, CNN, and Spike TV, does that make it a bona fide job title? I believe the official legal wording is something akin to “if three major media outlets say it, it has to be true.”
Let’s just say the IRS is going to love my next tax return, and leave it at that.
Another thing I noticed after watching this clip is that I clearly prefer the arm-back, leg-up “I’m totally relaxed here” pose. I’m not sure how this happened.
Take a look at my segment on ABC News last year (which is where the whole “Professional Geek” thing originated), and you’ll see what I mean:
“I don’t often sit on couches in front of television, but when I do, I put one arm back and one leg up.”
On a serious note, I can’t thank Katie Linendoll and the Spike TV and “All Access” crew enough for having me on the show to geek out about movies that may or may not happen, cool comics to check out, and what to keep an eye out for at Comic-Con. I actually talked for quite a bit longer during the live interview, and discussed some specific, new comics to look for, as well as a few other movies that might have a presence in San Diego next week.
It didn’t make the final cut of the segment, but I also answered the question of what I would buy in San Diego if they gave me $500 to spend at the show. As you can probably guess, my response included the ridiculously cool S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and anything related to ROM Spaceknight, Man-Thing, or “Doctor Who” (which is probably why it got cut — I can just imagine them wondering, “Can we say ‘Man-Thing’ on the air?”).
Oh, and if you liked the segment, make sure to pass it around. And if you really like it, feel free to let Spike know on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comment section of the video (preferably on the video’s homepage at Spike.com).
Thanks for tuning in!
