Geeks Aren’t Harmless: The Decision Point Between Anger and Abuse

Here’s the thing. I’m a sucker for the nostalgia of my lifetime. I love old VHS tapes of movies. I love old, crappy TV shows from the 80’s and 90’s. I love old cartoons and old commercials.

That question is this: What comes after Slingers? What am I doing next? Well, I’m ready to answer that question now. Just in time for this holiday shopping season I will be publishing a brand…
