From the editor's desk:

Thanks for the insightful review, Feros! Very much appreciated.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

It was my great pleasure, Creighton!

I don't know the actual etymology of the new use of "geek" but perhaps the label elitism to cause distance that Brian mentioned might be applicable there. Could "geeks" have risen to a certain level of respectability and then coopted and redefined one of the terms once used against them (geek), and left the other (nerd) for a subset of their kind more hygienically and/or socially challenged?

But however it started, I think the newer definition of geek as in geek culture is going to rise from no definition to def. 1 in most dictionaries. Time will tell.

That's fine.

What I'm arguing is, there's no overall general negative connotation to one word or the other - they're pretty equal in that respect.

A quick googling will show a great number of "positive" uses of the word "nerd" - quantities that should disabuse all but those with their fingers in their ears of the notion that the word is "generally" any more derogatory than the word geek.

Gotcha.

Thinking about it in reflections of pop culture... the only time I've seen nerd be used with kindness is in the context of the lovable loser/math whiz who may be sharp enough with that slide rule to make a million dollars. For instance, a girl who is considered attractive says, "I love nerds" and it means she has a thing for guys who don't self ornament in a way that is the norm, be it black glasses held together by tape or a Little Rascals' Alfalfa hair-du. These days, when I hear someone says they're a geek (and I understand your Google search varied) they're referring to the fact that they bought a Star Wars electric toothbrush off Ebay.

I would never do such a thing myself... because I STILL OWN MY ORIGINAL, Y'ALL!

(Drops microphone to the stage)

It isn't label elitism in my case, Brian.

I don't personally distance myself from the term nerd by stating how I've seen it used as it has been used in my lifetime, which is - barring the name of a candy brand - always been derogatorily.

It's the term geek that has changed, and gained acceptance as a trait with some redeeming social value.

My motivation in weighing in here is purely to define language as I've seen it defined and evolve over my years through the many places I've lived and visited, and the many movies, TV shows and books I've consumed. Language, both traditional on modern usage, is something I notice and care about.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

I identify with being a geek in its modern usage, which has indeed gained a new definition in our culture. The dictionary will catch up. I like what geeks like. I think like they think. I have been labeled a geek over the last few years, and always with affection.

I do not identify with being a nerd, nor has anyone ever labeled me one. My own connotations for the word nerd do favor a derogatory pronouncement.

Just one geek's personal story/viewpoint, anyhoo.

Jade, I'd like to see that Maron episode. Is it still running? What channel is it on?

Maron is only two episodes into its first season. The D&D flavored episode was the first. It's on Fridays at 10pm. I'm not sure how you'd catch the pilot, but it's got to be out there somewhere.

Well Airheads has certainly aired on TV... and I wouldn't have minded keeping this inclusive of both TV and film, because there are many good filmic examples as well (Though Mazes and Monsters was a TV movie - For which I did the original IMDB summary <G>). But to stick with TV shows:

8) Maron. In this new show with Marc Maron, Marc had a twitterer named Dragon Master insulting his act viciously as being not funny. He tracked the guy down to a game shop running a game of D&D. The gamers there were the offbeat type typical of stereotypical jabs, but they also controlled the coming conflict handily and sent Marc off a beaten man. So... offbeat, but intellectually superior and more emotionally grounded. A comedic, mixed portrayal that went in negative but wound up positive by the end.

9) Reno 911. Patton Oswalt potrayed both a gamer and a LARPer on the show. Everything and everyone is portrayed negatively on Reno 911. Gaming wasn't going to be the thing that changed that. Final result: It was a true life gamer/comedian poking loving fun at his own clan type negative portrayal.

I've always kept up with the Mythopoeic Rambling blog, but Friday's are the day I read it slow, see... slow. Because Friday is where the monsters live. Mike's time releases what amounts to a free bestiary. It may take 26 weeks, but then there's your book's worth of inspired and entirely-usable creatures and for free.

Many of these monsters derived from crazy art, photos and photo mash-ups paizonians threw at him, screaming "Shallonge!" and yet Mike always rose to the challenge... even when it meant statting up a small blue and white wing'd kitten made interesting enough to want to drop into an adventure.

Doodlebug, those were some large spruce gooses, weren't they?

thejeff, well those were the two heavy hitters, no doubt. The ones that left people deeply touched. I appreciate your take on literary circles.

Have you ever read Two Hearts... it's a short story that takes place in the world of the last unicorn, years later. It's a free read. Here's a LINK

Just recently, Peter submitted a story to a mystery story anthology... a genre for which he'd never written. Although many famous mystery writers asked in, Peter's story was considered by the editor to be the revelation. I have it around here somewhere. Suddenly I'm forced to realize the level of literary clutter around me. I could build play forts out of these books.

In the Atomic Array interview Peter talks about writing The Lord of The Rings for Raplh Bakshi in two weeks and under duress, and his manager explains how that started a chain of events that led to something much bigger.

Peter also talks about writing Sarek, an episode of Star Trek the Next Generation.

Back in the 60's he did a powerful piece about a Martin Luther King march, but Life magazine took an axe to it, adulterating its stoniness until it could pour from a sippy cup. That original version will be available to read soon, and it's very powerful stuff that is historically fascinating.

thejeff, sometimes I wonder about artists who only create a few things for us to see in their lifetime. Filmmakers such as David Lean, who only directed 18 feature length films in his lifetime but who ensured each effort really counted. I think Peter's one of those writers who suffers over the written word until the pain abates. He only has so much out there to read, but it's all so very heartfelt.

He continues to write, which is what I always wanted for myself... alive as a writer until the day I die.

I first read this as an adult and I was blown away by how awesome it was.

Should be a fun time, and I’ll record it and upload it to YouTube.
Ohmigod, I want to see this!

After writing A Fine and Private Place at age 19 he then wrote a non fiction calledI See By My Outfit: Cross-Country by Scooter, an Adventure.

He was being taken quite seriously in literary circles, and then... and then he wrote The Last Unicorn. It was ahead of its time. Metafiction wasn't a word or even a thing when he first did it.

And as they say, "Never go first."

The Last Unicorn wrecked his reputation in said literary circles who considered it to be a frivolous work. It was his undoing until it became the foundation stone beneath legend. Not until the last decade was he even remotely aware that he actually had fans out there.

And Doodlebug... seeing me doing some Bowiesque Vulcan dance song and dance number? Oh, that's happening.

I'll post this in here in the main Atomic Array thread too...

Link To This Episode

A unicorn fears she may be the last of her kind, and sets out to discover why.

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle was first published in 1968 and is generally considered one of the all-time best fantasy novels. The book was followed in 1982 by an animated film adaptation. Featuring the voices of Alan Arkin, Jeff Bridges and Mia Farrow, the film captured the hearts of a generation of fans.

After more than thirty years, enthusiasm for The Last Unicorn is still strong. I am particularly fond of this story, and so I jumped at the chance to help Peter with the upcoming screening tour.

Visit The Last Unicorn Screening Tour Website

The goal of the tour is to give as many people as possible a chance to meet Peter and see The Last Unicorn the way it was created to be seen — on a movie screen. There will be screenings all over America from now through the end of 2015, as well as several major cities in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Germany.

The first screening is in San Francisco on April 20th at the iconic Castro Theatre. This is more than just the premiere of the Last Unicorn Screening Tour. It’s also Peter’s 74th birthday! So from 6-8 PM the Cartoon Art Museum is going to celebrate The Last Unicorn and its creator by throwing a special VIP birthday blast for Peter with another raffle, a VIP auction, more book signing, a book singing — yes, you read that right — and Peter’s first public reading of a brand-new Schmendrick story.

This is Atomic Array’s seventh Special Episode, and seven was certainly a lucky number for me because preplanning this interview got me on the team as an Associate PR Director over at Conlan Press and for this screening tour. Kind of a dream come true. Kind of exactly like one.

Also mentioned:
* Standard Action Season 3 Kickstarter
* ENnies Publisher Karaoke Fundraiser

About that last item… The ENnie Awards are a celebration of quality RPG products. Not for profit, they try to raise money when and where they can, and often in inventively creative ways. This time, one of those ways is to have donations choose three acts to go onstage just before the ENnie Awards 2013 ceremonies begin at Gen Con this August. If my song is in the top three, I - with the help of some Star Trek cosplay models/dancers - will do a version of I Melt With You by Modern English, only I’ll sing I Meld With You and be done up as Spock facepalming wriggling Enterprise dames right and left onstage. Should be a fun time, and I’ll record it and upload it to YouTube. If you can spare a single dollar donation, it'd actually mean a lot to the ENnies. And you certainly don't have to pick my song.

Oh no... I'm the real McCoy. Now it might be hard to believe me as a silent substantiator of the insubstantial being that I'm talking and all... but I never said I was a particularly good mime.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

I have long hair, can be found in possession of an acoustic guitar, and I am a vegetarian. Hippie enough, I guess.

And I seriously studied mime between the ages of 7-10.

So should I just climb into the pot now, or would you prefer to toss me in? ;)

We asked Rite founder Steve Russell back on The Array to talk about one of his most recent releases: The Secrets of Adventuring. It includes a host of new insights and options for your characters to breathe new life into your Pathfinder game. <-- But admit it... you love Pathfinder unconditionally, even if it stopped breathing and returned to motion as some sort of undead game-strosity.

Paizo stole the name Pathfinder from me when James Jacobs saw me riding around in a Nissan Pathfinder. When I confronted him about it at Gen Con and he threw his bagel up into the air to distract me, slapped the red state of Texas onna my cheek, and ran up the street with feline grace.
