A Sister Geeks Goodbye

by T. Mack

SisterGeeks began in May of 2015 with a small group of friends who bonded over movies, television, books, and video games. Out of camaraderie, conversation, and confidence in the importance of our own opinions came SisterGeeks.net, a website for us to voice our thoughts on all the things that made us go “Squeeee!”

Sister Geeks Team

Over time, the ladies who contributed to the site and called themselves Sister Geeks changed. However, the vision, fun, and sisterhood of the site remained the same. We were still just a few girls hanging out, talking and writing about the stuff we liked, and hoping a few people might want to engage with us.

It has now been four and a half years and Sister Geeks has been a fun and fulfilling journey that has brought light and laughter into our lives, as well as memories we would not trade for the world. However, it would seem the time has come for us to move on to the next phase that life has for us.

Deuces

Whether or not that will include movie reviews, book lists, and geek news, we don’t know. But we are certain of how thankful we are to have had this time together to be Sister Geeks, to bond over our love for all things geeky, to “Squeeee” together and rant and rave over the good and bad of movies, TV, books, and pop culture.

Thank you for joining us on this ride. You’ve been a wonderful community. Be good to yourselves and stay geeky.

Sincerely,

Sister Geeks

Geek News: DAVID BOWIE DIES AT 69

By Jen P

On Sunday, David Bowie passed after an eighteen-month struggle with cancer. He will be greatly missed.

Bowie was best known in the geek world for his role as the Goblin King, Jareth in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, and his breakout role as a lonely alien in The Man Who Fell to Earth. But perhaps he was best known worldwide for his music career. He wrote and performed such hits as “Changes”, “Let’s Dance”, and “Under Pressure”. His album Blackstar released last Friday.

We’ll miss you, our fantasy king. Good luck and Godspeed.

Geek News: SISTERGEEKS SAY GOODBYE TO A LEGEND AS WES CRAVEN DIES AT 76

By Jen P

Yesterday, we lost one of the greats:

Mr. Wes Craven.

Wes-Craven

Craven was best known for creating and directing both the Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises. Craven also wrote/directed cult classics including The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House on the Left, and Swamp Thing. More recently he Wrote/Produced/Directed My Soul to Take and was producing the Scream series on MTV- my personal guilty pleasure.

He passed away of brain cancer in his home on Sunday, August 30th, 2015.

Mr. Craven, you will be missed. Thank you for all the screams and the laughs. And rest in peace, sir.
