This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

"I Kissed A Nerd" Music Video

When geek culture becomes parody, then it has come into its own.

TBH i find stuff like this really tedious. It's just so contrived. You need to be more than superficial 'ooh we're nerds - and we're hot' to make this work. Sorry but i really tire of this sort of stuff. It's as bad as the original song by the euqally tedious and soon to be the ex-mrs-russell-brand Katy Perry.

Geek satire isn't easy. The GUild manages it, but i wouldn't listen to their song more than once either.
“Ghost Whistler” is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). Parental death, alien battles and annihilated worlds.

Looks like someone just outed hiomself as having no sense of humor.

...also partially very true - but I'm biased to look on the nice side of it because of where I work.

If you find shit like this tedious and you are oh so above it all and just too cool for school, then why the fuck did you bother to click on the link in the first place and watch the video?

It was pretty good I guess. I'm way past getting tired of the stereotype that all nerds are introverted, fashion-challenged, socially awkward and overweight. Also, they're not all smart either. You can be a nerd and be as dumb as a stump.

I mean, there's a smart, cute girl in our Sunday group, so there's one.

The Guild, on the other hand, is genius (music video and webisodes).

I have no sense of humour because I don't find some good looking girls who happen to be geeks singing different lyrics to I Kissed A Girl funny?

Now that's comedy!
