A Fistful of Misanthropes

Video games, traditional and tabletop games, anime, movies, tv shows, and all that other stuff that falls in the realms of general geek-dom and nerd culture. Some people love this stuff so much they try to call it a "lifestyle" all of its own. We don't. We're a handful of misanthropic nerds/geeks/what have you, who love these things as much as we are sick of them all. We're here to bitch, moan, rant, rave, and generally tell you why we love to hate everything you love, and have a good time doing it. We're a Fistful of Misanthropes, and we are serious about stupidity.
