A Brief Blog Profile: Thug-Geek
by Thomas Hynes
Thug-Geek hails itself as the "true source for gaming, technology, gadgets, anime, comics, underground music and artists." They also cover events and provide reviews. They also claim to be an authentic voice. B.S., they promise, is not on the menu over here. This thug is a true geek (or the other way around; whatever). In other words, he's actually playing the video games and using the gadgets. Readers can expect a real perspective because these things are really important to him.
On this blog, you can read about new advancements in the field of beer-cooling technology. Laugh if you want, but this speaks to a certain demographic, i.e., mine! You can also see the Dark Knight Rises movie trailer depicted with legos. Or maybe this minimalistic Nintendo art is more appealing. These are all very cool things to blog about. But for me, these sneaker designs inspired by social media platforms and internet browsers is the coolest thing on here. Personally, I'd like both the twitter and facebook styles in Adidas. And while I'm not really a Nike guy, I do appreciate how the twitter bird is hanging out on the iconic swoosh in this pair. That's tight.
I think what I like about Thug-Geek is that it takes sneakers and video games and movies and lego and gadgets seriously. And what I really appreciate about it, is that it doesn't take itself too seriously.
