Meet-and-Greet

I am very honored to be invited to the Geeky Nights headquarters last night and finally meet the hosts: Dale, Mark and Abe. Unfortunately, they were not complete since Victor had to attend to something.


I was uncomfortable at first since I only see them doing the live podcast via ustream, but they were very warm and accommodating when I arrived. It was so surreal! I even forgot to take pictures with them. Haha! They briefly discussed what’s in store for the Geek Army, then they started the show wearing those cool 3D glasses.

I salute these people for being so serious and dedicated as I have witnessed how they plan on their next big project. It is something to look forward to, especially for the loyal viewers of the show.

I also thank them for acknowledging my fan arts. For everyone’s information, I was not commissioned to do the teasers. Hey, I still want to win one of the gadgets so I cannot be a part of the show! But since I am not busy with anything, I have decided to make fan arts and teasers for the show. Doing these also makes me practice my skills (if I have, lol) in using Photoshop and Pixelmator even if I know for a fact that I am not creative and artistic. Check out http://geekarmyonline.tumblr.com.

I don’t know if they’re already used to the praises and hearing how great their show is, but I think a simple gesture of showing your appreciation will keep them motivated to run the show and offer more to their supporters. I learned that there are a couple of groups who copied the idea of making a tech/geek podcast. But according to Charles Caleb Colton, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

Follow them on Twitter @GeekyNights and like their Facebook page at http://facebook.com/GeekyNights for more updates about the show. And don’t fail to watch each episode every Wednesday night at 9 over http://ustream.tv/channel/geekynights, and subscribe to their podcast.

Again, to the Geeky Nights hosts, maraming salamat and more power to your show. I am really excited to the launch of their new website and of course I’m also hoping to win one of Sony Philippines’ gadgets soon. =)

I also had a few seconds exposure at the end of the show. ;p

Time To Change

We only live once. Why will you waste your time whining about the crappy service of your current network provider since we always have the freedom to choose?
