by Ben Feeon 14/02/2016
Love is in the air here at Geek Pride Headquarters (that or someone forgot to change the cat litter again) and so we thought we’d take a moment to celebrate some of the great loves of geek culture.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Official Main Trailer Release

by SeanPWallaceon 07/11/2014
If I’m a little honest here, the Hobbit movies are something of a mixed bag. The original Lord of the Rings trilogy was something of a masterpiece, with large parts of the story sacrificed to make a smoother film-going experience. But the Hobbit is one story stretched out to three films, in an egregious example […]

Do you like to be creative with Halloween? Original? Show who you really are? Well I have scoured the internet to bring you a compilation of geeky pumpkins.
