When will you children learn that you cannot possibly out-geek me?

Actually if you're talking about the Franz Joseph edition, I have 3 copies as well as Bjo Trimble's Concordance (tho the front cover with the spinny episode guide wheel is missing). Bud, Bill, Jeff, Mark, who wears the crown of trivia by lifetime appointment?

Well, I know Lyle best among all of us. I have to tell you it's close, "Greg". :P

I suggest you both take inventory of all your proofability of geekdom, including your knowledge and report back to us so we can judge.

If it's movies, SciFi, horror, or comics. Then we all know the king.

All hail, King George

My concordance still has the spinning wheel. Though to be honest, I'm not sure what I did with my set of the NCC-1701 blue prints. But I still have the shirt that I made using the pattern in the Star Fleet Technical Manual.

(It now fits me about as well as Bill Shatner's did in the 3rd Season. :oops: )

First of all, the term would be better suited to Master of Specialized Genre Knowledge (Cinematic).

Geek implies someone who goes about wearing costumes in public or permanently altering body parts to reflect their participation in genre activity (we all know there's no one like that in this group) :twisted:

Second, basic minimums are must be applied. Such as:

1. do you listen to all commentary tracks on genre DVDs?

2. Is imdb.com bookmarked on your browser? (replacing the personal cataloging system)

3. Own at least 5 genre Movie and/or TV guides (eg Phil Hardy's SF and Horror Encyclopedia, Psychotronic Guide To Movies, Alan Morton's Complete Guide to SF, Horror & Fantasy TV Series)?

4. Include non-canon media in analysis of any given series (eg Pocket's ST novels, Big Finish DW productions)?

5. Think Mike Okuda is full of c***?

That said, let the games begin

I gave up the title of Geek years ago.
People call me a geek, but I just smile
and listen to a few more brain cells die.

uh Bill, that's Jon Kyl, close but no Lantern

Also working on Masters in the following areas:

James Bond (lit/cinema): 90% complete pending review of the Raymond Benson texts

Classic Rock (1963-1985)

Pulp Fiction (currently studying at the Wold Newton School of Mytho-histography)

and finally, had to put my PopD (Doctor of Pop Culture) on hold temporarily. Altho I remain undefeated in 7 editions of Trivial Pursuit (losing only 1 game in the Children's Edition to my daughter [Strawberry Shortcake being my weak point]) I have not had the chance to compete in the more recent editions (exusing myself permanently from the Star Wars edition as I just don't care about it anymore)
