"These two words, nerd and geek, are frequently used interchangeably. However, this does a great disservice to all nerds and geeks who wear the badge of their respective anti-social lifestyle choice with pride. For this reason I feel that it is of the utmost importance that we correctly define the two terms.

A geek can best be defined as one who maintains an excessive fascination with a single thing or collection of things. I use the more general term thing only because there is a wide range of fascinations available which may qualified as geeky. Some have asserted that the object of obsession must be one that is not considered to be socially acceptable or commonly observed from the majority of inhabitants of any give society."

"The Hard Times of RJ Berger"

If you thought that I wasn't going to talk about this show, you're sadly mistaken.  I watched this show after seeing Game 2 of the finals (Go Lakers, but they was slummin' like hell on that game) and I was dying on the couch with my 2 homies Cass and Jason.  We were quoting lines from it all evening until it was time to head out. The premise of the show is what stuck out (no pun intended, and no homo) to me.  This is the quintessential show that really tells that the geeks and the nerds are cooler than what most people perceive, but in a hilarious context.  Props to MTV for this one.  I hope the rest of the season is as funny as its pilot.

"The Hard Times of RJ Berger" comes to MTV every Monday night at 10pm.
