If you listened to the July 21st edition of the Black Geeks Podcast, you probably already know that a good chunk of our conversation and antics for that matter, revolved around Comic Con 2013. Unfortunately, due to our collective lack of funds, your favorite group of trash talking misfits were unable to attend. Insert sad face here! No, seriously, we’re all really sad about that!
Although we did discuss some colorful costume ideas, including a rhinestone covered Captain America themed thong, of the Magic Mike variety. Ah, the humor, but I digress. Anyway, following the show our conversation continued and the team collectively decided that we would not miss out on another Comic Con. Essentially, we decided that it would be Comic Con 2014 or bust! With that in mind, we decided it might be a good idea to start early and do a little fundraising to support this endeavor. So coming soon to the website will be a donate button, where all of our loyal and loving fans can donate funds to send your favorite group of loud mouths to Comic Con. We even got Geek Soul Brother a.k.a. The Chairman of the Board in on the act. He’s promised to come as the Vision if we can raise the funds. Big Baba Rob is coming as Geek Soul Brother. Darth Geekonius is planning on coming as Elmo dressed in a Sith’s robe and a red light saber. King Phayce a.k.a. Mr. Wonderful hasn’t decided who he’s coming as yet, but I’m quite sure some purple crushed velvet will be in the mix somewhere. We’re still in the negotiation process with Renaegade Storm a.k.a. Renae, but we’ve been encouraging her to breakout that black X-Men outfit we all know she has in the back of a closet somewhere. Ghost, who knows what he’ll do, but I’m quite sure it will probably involve camouflage and weapons. As for me, your friendly neighborhood Samurai, I’m either coming in full red armor like Cye from the old anime Ronin Warriors (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers) or in a full on silk kimono ensemble like Lord Sesshomaru from Inuyasha. Either way, it will be cool!
There are probably some of you out there who want to support us, but all of the actual numbers in your bank account start behind the decimal point as opposed to in front of it. I get it, trust me I do, we’re in a recession. But there’s no need to worry if you only have limited funds, every level of contribution will assist in getting us to San Diego next year. Whether it’s five dollars or five hundred dollars, there’s a place for you on this team. We’re also in the market for some corporate sponsorship. Apple, Samsung, Sony/Playstation, Microsoft/Xbox, Marvel, DC, Warner Bros., it doesn’t matter, if you’re game, we’re game! Com’on, Geekonius can’t be the only one getting sponsored, you gotta spread the wealth! With all that being said, consider this a public service and support The Black Geeks! If you don’t, I’ll send Geekonius over to your house in his I hate Yoda underoos to force choke you! Just saying.
