Reviews from the Post-Geek Singularity

The Post-Geek Singularity (PGS) is filled with all kinds of Imagination Connoisseurs. Devotees of a variety of genres, fandoms, media and culture. And we love hearing from them.

Here are reviews written by fans for fans and submitted for consideration (and sometimes discussion) on ROBSERVATIONS. We review each submission to make sure it meets with our own “Prime Directive” but we don’t judge the content of the argument – even if we disagree with it.  Click here to see all the reviews.

For the love of cosplay!

One way fans show their love of a particular franchise is by literally wrapping themselves up in the costumes and, sometimes, other accoutrements of the world in which those particular characters live. In the world of genre entertainment fans and comic cons, it’s called cosplay … and it can be wildly entertaining.

Here are various pieces produced for The Burnettwork featuring Imagination Connoisseurs from all walks of life, living in “the moment” and celebrating their existence in the happy place we refer to as the “Post-Geek Singularity.” We hope you enjoy these tributes as much as we do.  Go to our cosplay compilation page by clicking here.
