Today I am recording a new episode of FromPage2Screen and as I sit here and wait for one of my co-hosts, I have become inspired to introduce a new segment into the show.
It has come about because I am on Twitter as well as Facebook and this blog site all at the same time working on a few things at the same time.
Theres a man called Ryan Penagos who is the Editorial Director for Marvel.Com. He sent me reply to a Tweet I sent him about the passing of Police Academy star Bubba Smith. That cheered me up. The reply, not the passing of Bubba.
Awesome that a guy with 1.4Million followers on Twitter saw mine and felt he should spare the time to reply to me. I geeked out a little bit. Which isnt often but it is something that I enjoy when it happens.
So there you have it. Geek Moment of the Day was born.
Perhaps half an hour later I sent a tweet to someone else and she replied. Who was she? Well Actress Virginia Madsen (star of Candyman, TV’s The Event, The Number 23, Highlander 2 to name a few) Once again I geeked out and Geek Moment of the Day became something I could definately get into.
I think its awesome when someone replies to me. Yes and I know actors and actresses et all are just normal people with cool jobs. But something does give me a nice kick when they are in the film world.
Chatting to Nabil last week, and John Foutz and Dexter Goad all make this little media structure that I am creating all worth while.
So heres hoping the Geek Moment of the Day/Week/Month just gets bigger.
It actually started off this morning when the actress who plays Sasha Valentine in TV’s Hollyoaks sent me a tweet. I havent watched Hollyoaks for a few years but it was nice that actress Nathalie Emmanuel took the time to send FromPage2Screen a couple of tweets.
