“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
That quote was from Simon Pegg, known for many “niche” films such as Mission Impossible (Benji Dunn), Ready Player One (Curator), Shaun of the Dead (Shaun), J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek (Scotty), and the voice of Dengar in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Time to Geek Out
When Simon Pegg said that, the quote should have made its way on a shirt, a spray-painted wall, or a full back tattoo. It’s not just about being “geeky” or finding freedom in freaking out over things others would question, this is about being who you are.
Find liberation in that. The things we have loved for years are now pop culture necessity so we can be who we are unashamedly.
Whatever your passion is and makes you…you, Enjoy it!
