Farewell, Lounge Geeks

Hey Gang, Steak Plissken here.

I have had the good fortune during my career to not only meet some incredibly passionate and inspiring people, but to become friends with them as well. These are folks who have earned my utmost respect and admiration. One guy who continues to inspire me on a daily basis is Mr. Grant Davis.

 

 

Creative as all get out, hilarious both on the mic and off, and a model geek father, Grant is a maverick of this weird industry we call geek media entertainment. Well, at least that’s what I call it.

Developed as a spinoff from Spill, Grant’s Lounge Geeks site amassed a passionate following of creative and fervent fans and has been the catalyst for the inception of some of the very best geek podcasts on the web. I was fortunate enough to be associated with the site myself for a time (though my schedule never allowed me to be as involved as I would have liked to have been). Grant’s DIY spirit and flair for cultivating content is tremendously impressive, as is his level of caring and generosity.

That’s why I was saddened to learn recently that Lounge Geeks will soon be shutting its doors. But true to his generosity and concern for his team, Grant reached out to us here at OOU and asked if we would be the new home for the now “orphaned” LG content. We were honored to say the very least.

I could ramble on, but this letter from Mr. Davis himself sums it all up better than I ever could.

Thanks again, Grant, and allow us to raise our glasses to the excellence of Lounge Geeks. And to the shows/blogs coming over on July 31st, we extend our warmest welcome.
