Hey guys, you may have noticed some changes this morning, especially if you took a look at our main site. We don’t normally do personal updates here, but this one felt important enough to start to fill you guys in. Last night, at about 10:30pm, a greek food truck parked outside our office door. We were pretty happy about that, to be honest – we don’t really have the budget to hire food trucks.
We went down, and they were closed, and so we figured they’d be back in the morning and we all went home.
When we got back in the morning, the office was locked tight, and this was nailed to our door, Martin Luther style:
Yeah, I got no idea what that says. We managed to break back in to the office through our secret underground fighting arena, but we still are locked out of making any changes to the site or to the blog. Not sure what’s going on, and we’re examining our legal options. I’ll keep you updated as we know more.
UPDATE: As you may have guessed, this was part of our April Fool’s silliness yesterday. Go check out the rest of the story here:
Mike is joined on the podcast this week by Doc Atrocity, Scorpion (yes, THAT Scorpion) and Broseph Joe Brody from Oakland’s own Hoodslam for a discussion about professional wrestling on a weekend that is entirely coincidental and has no big wrestling events on it at all. They’ll discuss how a group of wrestlers goofing around with each other turned into one of the biggest drawing shows, with 1000+ packed into Oakland’s Metro Opera House every month. We’ll also break down wrestling’s macho culture in the wake of the latest training scandal, whether the internet’s passionate wrestling community is helpful or harmful to running a live show, and how interactivity and truly connecting with the fans is the future of wrestling.
The Ace of Geeks come to you this week from the motel room Jarys and Melissa are using to hide from the Terminator! We’ll discuss the things that broke the internet this week, like the Power/Rangers fan film. Plus! Mike and Mae Linh try and convince Jarys to see Kingsman! We review

This week, the Ace of Geeks get a surprise guest in Robert Fulkerson of Found in the Alley! We’ll tell you to vaccinate your damn kids, and in the process discuss League of Legends new map, whether Super Smash Bros is a “real” fighting game, Telltale Games, and what Disneyland says about us a society.
This week, on the Ace of Geeks Podcast: We discuss American Sniper, and it’s philosophy of Wolves, Sheep and Sheepdogs. We’ll make sure everyone understands how good of a movie George of the Jungle is.
