Tonight on the GeekNights Lounge, we consider leftovers. Food left over from cooking and/or restaurants. In the news, the megathread around bullying accusations against K-Pop idols continues, the incremental cost of such things remains near zero, and the only unconfirmed element of Dyatlov Pass has been plausibly resolved,
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of calendars. There was a time when people had physical ones made of paper. Weird right? In the news, Scott's sort of into Rubik's Cubes, you should honestly watch the impeachment of Donald Trump, hackers used TeamViewer to attempt the poisoning of an entire Florida town, Gina Carano is rightly dropped from Star Wars, and New York is killing people by allowing sports to have live audiences.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider... unfinished business. In the news, Otakon may not survive COVID, and the NWHL has to deal with BrStl Sprts drama as their bubble starts to fall apart even as they were making a big move streaming their games on Twitch.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider hair. We did a show once on shaving back in 2005, when we first switched to safety razors, but we never talked about head hair more generally. Yes, this is a Thursday. How could you tell?
In the news, Scott's doing the Advent of Code, check out the Floppy Emu Model C, the movie industry just changed forever, and we found the rocket booster we lost in the 60s. Also, Joe Biden won the presidency by a historic and growing margin.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the hoodie. In the news, don't travel for the holidays, Scott has the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., Rym is getting an Index, the new Unsolved Mysteries is a apparently not too bad.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of ghosts. From haunted bunk beds to haunted paintings, Fate Magazine to ghost stories, ghosts are actually a fascinating subject. In the news, The Amazing Randi has passed away, Artzie Music was destroyed by copyright, the Twitch Copyright Strike Apocalypse has resumed with far more dire consequences than last time, and it is a terrible idea to require a license to stream playing a game.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Vampires vs. the Bronx (2020). It's a delightful horror comedy movie in the vein of The Lost Boys but with a real and heartfelt look at the Bronx. Definitely check it out. In the news, Rym had some plumbing problems, the NHL Draft went well for the Rangers (as expected), and the FBI foiled a coup attempt/kidnapping plot by right wing nutjob militias.
