Why am I a Geek and feel proud of it?

That is a question that I've made myself a few times throughout my life as a Geek. What's the answer that I always get from the deepest parts of my brain and heart?
IT MAKES ME FREAKING HAPPY!

Yes being Geek makes me happy, keeps me motivated to be alive and keeps my imagination flowing. It what makes me feel like I'm somebody in this planet, in this galaxy in this universe. Even though I have a loving wife that makes me feel like the most amazing person in this universe, Geekdom makes me feel like I'm the most important person in different galaxies, in different universes, and in realities.

Why am I Geek? Because I can go into this different world and escape for a few minutes or hours from the realities of this world. But most importantly is because my imagination soars to the farthest reaches of my mind.

Being a Geek thought me a lot of things that I might have learned in school. For example I am a big fan of the RPG game Vampire:The Masquerade and it's other published titles from the World of Darkness. This books thought me a lot of history and insight of many cultures of this planet we live in.

Being a Geek thought how to fight for what you believe, like the X-Men. That to be a family you don't have to be blood relatives, like the Bat family. That real friendship is a very powerful thing no matter what, like Batman and Superman or Blue Beetle and Booster Gold thought me. And that love is the most powerful force in this planet, heck this universe which many Comic Book characters showed me.

There are so many other great reasons for why I'm a Geek.
But the main reason for why I'm a Geek is that it makes me HAPPY.

Anyway that enough rambling from me.
And always remember to Geek out!

I love custom stuff!

I am a guy that love his toys, consoles and other nifty stuff as is and in perfect conditions. But sometimes I see some really freaking awesome customs. And I have to say I want one,  no want all of them!

So I've been checking out through the net for some Nintendo customs and I found this great customer that does exactly that. Their name is Zoki64 .

I have to say their work is amazing,  with colors that pop out, that are shiny or just plain colorful. There are even custom works with lighting which are just spectacular.

I included some photos of Zoki64 work and included a link to their page so you can see the rest of their amazing work.

And don't forget to Geek out!

The New Wally West

So I jus read an interview by Newsarama with the co-writers of The Flash about issue #35 and and beyond. I'm liking what they're doing with the character and I definitely love the new version of Wally West. This post is mostly about that the New Wally.

I noticed since the announced the character and show that he was black there was so much hate. And now that I he appeared in this last issue of the Flash #35, I see more hate towards the character, DC Comics and their idea of the New 52.

One of the issues I had with DC Comics a few years back, way before the New 52 was that I felt that they where stagnant, they barely reinvented themselves and most of the characters where the same since I started reading Comics in the 80's. So seeing that DC decided to the New 52 and try a different approach to their characters, new origins and new personalities made want to get back on DC Comics adventures. And yeah there have been very bad ideas, but there are some very awesome ones too.

Which brings me to Wally West and his very drastic changes. I really love the old Wally, he is the Flash that I read and grew up with. But seeing that DC wanted to bring him back and not just bring him back he has changed quite a bit... Ok he changed a lot he is black and that is awesome! Yes it is awesome because we have a major DC Comics character that is now black and now I feel more proud of DC Comics on that part.

Anyways Wally is back and he is black. So people have to chill and try to enjoy this new version of him.

I'm back! ( Even though nobody noticed.)

I abandoned this blog for around 2 years maybe be more. So I'm trying to get back at it and see where does it take. Let's see if Big Black Geek has some influence in the Geek world.
