The Geekly News: HereBeGeeks in 8DAYS!

Just when we thought 2011 couldn’t beat 2010 for being amazing, here’s an amazing way for is to start the year. If you haven’t heard us raving our heads off on twitter yesterday: got featured in 8DAYS! 8DAYS is a weekly local entertainment and lifestyle magazine that’s been published since 1990, covering tons of local and foreign entertainment news, and it’s actually a magazine my family has read since the very very first issue. I, too, grew up reading 8DAYS, (I usually skipped to the movies and music sections, then the Last Page (by Colin Goh of Talking Cock fame)) so to have actually been featured in it is a huge, huge honour. We might not have been THE site of the week, which means we don’t turn up on their online version, but that doesn’t take the joy we got from seeing our tiny mugs in the screencap. What I do know is that all of us ran out to buy copies right away – I personally bought 2, keeping the one with the nice, unkinked spine, and scanning the other. Also, 8DAYS does not fit into a comic book bag if you’re wondering (I forced it in anyway).

We’d like to thank 8DAYS writers Tan Yi Hui, Geraldine Lim and Liew Liyan for somehow finding us in the dark corner of the internet, our fabulous guest writers Sarah and Melvin for keeping us going when the 3 of us are flailing about aimlessly, @plhu for spotting the article in the first place, and all of you readers who’ve been keeping us going – we do it for you.
