Suddenly and without warning this afternoon, popular geek culture blog MTV Geek shuttered it's... um... browser windows, posting the following message in a blog post titled So Long and Thanks for All the
Friends and fellow geeks — We're shutting up shop and heading to the great arcade in the sky.
Our friends over at MTV News will provide continued coverage of ComicCon, your favorite geek movies, video games and more. Thanks to everyone for the great run.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
We know that, far up the chain of command, MTV Geek was owned by evil multimedia conglomerate Viacom, but, despite that, they still managed to have "personality" and often a sense of humor, which, really, is all we ask for from a blog. The Outhouse staff read it on a regular basis, and we're sad to see it go. Good luck to their writers, who we're sure will land on their feet.
If any of the bloggers there need to get the word out about where you're heading next, or if you want to talk a bunch of shit about the industry under a pseudonym (which is really cathartic, trust us), shoot us a tweet @TheOuthousers.
