This Week’s Geek

Artist and podcaster Len Peralta has started a project called “Geek a Week,” in which he interviews — and then makes a playing card of — a notable geek. Geeks profiled so far include Jonathan Coulton, Fred Seibert and Veronica Belmont. Who is this week’s geek? Why, I am. Go to the Geek a Week site to see my playing card, which is ridiculously awesome, down to the tattoo (and don’t forget to check out the back side), and while you’re there you can also check out the podcast interview with me.

Seriously, you want to see the playing card. It made me spit Coke Zero out of my mouth when I saw it. And you know how I love my Coke Zero.

And of course if you enjoy the Geek a Week stuff, bookmark it/put it in your RSS feed, because there are 48 more geeks to go.

At first I couldn’t tell what was funny enough to make you spurt your beverage. Then I realized that it was bacon in the tattoo. Then I had to wipe up some tea.

It’s because he gives you vastly more hair than you normally have, Sylvester Stallone’s old body, and the junior BFG-9000. The tattoo is lagniappe. These are trading cards, right, and not the Geek Major Arcana?

Oooh, he needs to make these and sell them. I’d definitely buy a set. Mr. Peralta does understand each subject he’s using. He does understand you to a T. Bacon and cats. What else does one need in life?

I can so see John using that as his publicity photo when he is GoH at an SF convention.

And John, thank you for the warning; I put my coffee down before clicking through, which is good, because hot coffee hurts when it goes out ones noze.
