Anne Billson has posted a 1985 interview she did with director George Miller (the Mad Max films). Miller talks about many things including Aunty Entity’s probable past as a hero and Max as, in Mel Gibson’s words, “a closet human being.” (Thanks, Matt!)

S1E1‘s Jessi and CNN Geek Out‘s Genevieve Dempre have some things to clear up for CNN Geek Out!‘s Joe Peacock, including that models paid by companies to work at conventions are different from cosplaying attendees. “The other problem with this whole conversation about which women are legitimately geeks and which women are just faking it for male attention is that it still assumes that men are the ultimate arbiters.” Meanwhile, Adam P. Knave has some things to say about poser-hunting that I’m sure have nothing to do with any larger discussion about policing the geekiness of ladies.
