A Ringing Endorsement

March 17th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 9 Comments

Veronica BelmontI’m not one to toot our horn around here at Rifftrax (unless it’s a nose flute, but more about that later) but today we received a very nice review from Veronica Belmont, Host of the webcast Mahalo Daily and voted Sexiest Geek of the Year.

This is flattering on many levels. First, as a woman and an unrepentant, self-described tech-video-gaming geek, Veronica demonstrates extraordinary courage. One can only assume that she kicks it on Rock Band, in Solo or Band World Tour modes. Second, she is under thirty, which so few of us around here remain. It’s not that I now consider us cool, but it’s helpful that somebody who is considered cool (to which I would add our own forum members and blog readers, of course) would consider us at all. And as if that’s not enough, Veronica is also a fan of the chili pepper, which is enough for us to provide our own ringing endorsement back.

Thanks for the mention, Veronica. Consider yourself blogrolled. Come riff with us sometime.

    How do I go about being a professional girl-geek? Seriously, like can I do that too? I’m a girl and a geek, and I’m under 30.

    Veronica, ladyfriend, call a girl with some pointers.

    Hey, if you figure it out, could you tell me? I’m also female, geeky, and under 30, and frankly professional girl-geek sounds more fun than my current profession of grad student.

    I can start playing Magic again, if it’ll help.

    I’m old but also female and a geek. Can I be a professional woman-geek? No aliteration but I could spend more time playing WOW.

    Nice. A sharp review, and her video on getting a private pilot’s license is pretty cool. She can fly my Cessna, if you get my drift?

    Wow! I’m glad you enjoyed the review. I’m such a fan!

    I’m not sure where you guys are located, but if you’re ever in SF or LA I’d love to do an episode of Mahalo Daily about Rifftrax!

    It’s also great to hear from other lady geeks in the comments :)
