Jennifer Lawrence Said She Doesn’t Know Anything About Comics, so We Picked a Few We Think She Might Like

You might like them too!

We had the pleasure of attending the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere here in New York thanks to our friends at who TCL. They got us on the red carpet where we asked Jennifer Lawrence what other female comic book characters she wanted to see on film, and her answer surprised us.

A Good Year: The 12 Best Things to Come Out of 2012

Happy New Year! Today's the start of 2013, sure, but that doesn't mean we have to give up on 2012 just yet. There were a number of wonderful and amazing things released this past year. From video games to movies, comedy albums to comics, 2012 was chock-full of lovely creations to occupy our time. That said, there were certainly a select few that stood well above the rest. Each of us here at Geekosystem has provided three picks from 2012's lineup that we think everyone else would be foolish not to check out. Hit the jump to see what we consider to be the absolute best things to come out of 2012!

The Science of the NBA

Though you may turn up your nose at the very thought of basketball, and would much rather dive into things that piss off Alan Moore, or control a robot made in 2012 with a 1983 computer, the NBA playoffs are in full swing, and wouldn't you know it, there's a bunch of science going on.

Today, We Posted Our 10,000th Post Here at Geekosystem

Though Miss Congeniality would have you believe yesterday, April 25, is the perfect day, we here at Geekosystem are also mighty fond of today, April 26, for today marks our 10,000th published post. It's been a blast since the site's launch on the road to 10,000 posts, and we've covered just about anything and everything under the geekosphere that our human hands and remaining shreds of morality and sanity have allowed. Click past the break, and take a gander at some Geekosystem trivia, as well as some of our favorite things we've done on the road to 10,000.

The Internet Has Everything, Including Bikini Models With Dinosaurs

Pretty much anything can happen on the Internet, so a gallery of bikini models posing with dinosaur paraphernalia probably isn't completely out of left field, but that doesn't make it any less strange. But let's walk it back a little, shall we? Don Glut is a writer, actor, director, and amateur paleontologist. I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't heard the name, but he was a writer for things like "Dink, The Little Dinosaur," penned the novelization of The Empire Strikes Back, and produced a documentary called Dinosaur Movies. Clearly he's a man of many talents, with a thing for dinosaurs.

Fleshlight-Holding iPad Case is Just as Creepy as It Sounds [UPDATED]

Are you speechless, or just surprised no one thought of this earlier? Behold: The Fleshlight Holding iPad Case for all your, you know, needs. Let's not qualify that with an adjective; it speaks for itself. Now, it's worth noting two things here. This is neither a real thing -- it's a concept mockup -- nor is it officially endorsed by Fleshlight in any way, shape, or form. Last thing we need is letters from Fleshlight to start showing up at the Geekosystem office. But yeah. This is a thing someone thought of. Welcome to the future, everyone.

10 Terrifying Doors You Really Don’t Want to Open

Silent Hill 4's Apartment Door

Static objects are fairly good at being ominous: A humanoid figure too far off in the distance to have any discernible features, or a lone gun sitting on a dresser. They're ominous because of the details the imagination fills in. Why is that humanoid just standing around all the way over there? Why do you have that gun sitting on the dresser in plain sight? For the details the imagination fills in, a door provides the biggest lack thereof, and thus provides a stomping ground for the most twisted, evil machinations your imagination can conjure. On top of that, they could be the portal to something even more terrifying and sinister than you could've thought, and after the break, we whipped up a list of the ten most terrifying doors in geekdom that are better left closed.

Roundup of Video Game Awards' Exclusive Trailers, and Our Responses

This weekend, Spike TV ran the Video Game Awards. All in all it was a pretty tepid affair, but it did give studios a chance to show off their forthcoming titles with a slew of exclusive trailers. We gathered all of them up and were just going to present them to you, gentle reader, but the embedded videos looked so lonely there, and we figured we were as qualified as anyone to have opinions on the Internet, so we added our compressed thoughts about each trailer into a single sentence. (Most of the time.)

Remember the Geekosystem Survey? You Could Still Win a $25 Gift Card for Fun T-Shirt Purchases

You see that awesomely punny graphic up above? You can have that on a shirt! Or a breakfast cereal Castlevania mashup! Or ALF cooking his favorite meal! You want to sport those shirts around town, right? If you do us a favor and take this quick survey to tell us about yourself, you'll have a chance to land a $25 gift card from Splitreason, and can then walk around town proudly displaying your love of Castlevania and Count Chocula.

If you're a little shy about telling us some basic information about yourself, we at Geekosystem will get the ball rolling with some of our darkest secrets: James Plafke doesn't dig The Lord of the Rings, and Eric Limer just couldn't get into Ocarina of Time, only one of the best video games ever made. What kind of geeks are they? Max Eddy once ate an entire can of jellied cranberry sauce by himself on a day that was not (or even close to) Thanksgiving, and it happened at a movie theater, and Geekosystem rogue contributor Rollin Bishop is terrified of pizza sauce (okay, maybe he just dislikes it and misses pizza parties because of that). The answers you'll be giving are more basic and much less embarrassing than the ones we just provided, so get to it!

Geekosystem is Seeking a Part-Time Fall Editorial Intern

Do you want to be Geekosystem's next Spider Jerusalem, or at least Geekosystem's next fall part-time intern?

Our interns spend most of their time writing, and most definitely receive bylines for all of their stories. We like to recruit through our internships, so if ascent to a higher plane is your goal, this isn't a bad way to get started.

Start and end dates are flexible, but should be targeted to that timeframe. *You would be expected to be in the office (in New York City) for around eight hours a day, two to three times a week. Both the hours and amount of days are flexible around your schedule, though we do keep fairly standard office hours. *You must currently be a college student, and we can offer you credit. The primary qualification for this job is an encyclopedic knowledge of and obsessive enthusiasm for multiple aspects of geek culture. If you are knowledgeable about weird, cutting-edge tech phenomena, follow gadget and consumer electronics news, possess a deep knowledge of video games or science fiction, or would laugh for all the right reasons when someone in the office remarks, "It's bigger on the inside," for any reason, then this internship is for you!

Headline of the Day: “Horse Herpes Outbreak Forces Rodeo Queens to Ride Stick Ponies”


Instead of competing on horses, as is typically the case, contestants were asked to trot around the arena with stick horses as their show ponies. ... "It will give you experience for if you happen to have a problem like this later in life," Steed said with a smile. "You already have the experience of riding a stick horse!"
