All of us have a little geek in us, what kind are you. Me I'm totally into Japanese culture, and I'm learning Japanese (on my own free will) so I guess that makes me an anime/manga geek, although I don't obsess over it like a lot of people do. Also my love for Japanese culture goes way beyond the video games/anime/manga, it has an amazing classical culture and pop culture (J-pop anyone).

Anyway what are some of your geeky inclines, I have a little bit of all but mostly Japan-geek prevails.

Like the Left Of Center catchphrase states, "We're not music snobs. We're music geeks."

Such is my status.

I fit under the first three categories nicely, and probably the school geek if it has the characteristics I think its name implies. However, I prefer the term "nerd," as it carries less connotation of social awkwardness (at least in Kansas, anyway).

MMORPGs, comics, video games, music theory geek (5th note anyone?), and of course, bookworm

Fantasy geek, I just can't get enough of that stuff. And I LOVE power metal.

Dodging? Pansy. We don't dodge where i come from.

As for the pain factor, just get used to the pain. Punch various objects such as walls, trees, floors, your mother, rocks, table etc. Just generally anything hard.
#31
Music Geek.

But I chose Video Game Geek before I saw other.


But I'm a mix of a music/video game/Japanese geek. I love comic books as well, but never have the money for them, and I love fantasy and RPGs, but I'm not as much of a geek for those.

I dunno. I'm not into all the "popular" geek stuff like LOTR, video games, computers etc...

Movies?

We're an ONLINE COMMUNITY of guitarists, rather than saying we're guitarists that happen to be geeks, it would probably be closer to the truth that we're geeks who happen to be guitarists. I don't even know If I could deny being a geek, with a straight face.

Probably video game geek, but I haven't played any games in a long time, I have been playing guitar.

Wow that quote sums me up. A total geek that happens to be into any form of rock music, and guitar.

Qustion?

Why is it not nerdy to be into Anime/Manga/J-Pop/Other Japanese stuff in Japan but it is everywhere else in the world. I mean if you play baseball and watch American TV shows in Japan its not nerdy. Or if your an American who's totally into French culture, its not that nerdy. Seriously I think it's insulting to the Japanese to have nearly every entertainment export they have be “for nerds”. It's so weird, why does it work like that.

I'm a nerd, video-game geek, band geek, and Japanese-geek (as you put it) - I used to like anime and stuff but soon found the language more interesting.

Yep. I'm pretty geeky.
