For a soulless, corporate mega-site, they were actually pretty okay.

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.
We get it. You don't feel like signing up for an Outhouse account, even though it's FREE and EASY! That's okay. You can comment with your Facebook account below and we'll take care of adding it to the stream above. But you really should consider getting a full Outhouse account, which will allow you to quote posts, choose an avatar and sig, and comment on our forums too. If that sounds good to you, sign up for an Outhouse account by clicking here.
Note: while you are welcome to speak your mind freely on any topic, we do ask that you keep discussion civil between each other. Nasty personal attacks against other commenters is strongly discouraged. Thanks!

Regardless, you can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, but would probably have the most luck just emailing him.
