Towelites! My name is Chris Walk and I am the other Co-Editor in Chief along with my best friend Casey Bowker. We run the great Geekly venture you see before you, known as Don’t Forget a Towel dot com! For the past two years together we have grown this entity from blog, to a full fledged editorial website, and beyond. Along the way I have met some pretty cool people, that I can now call friends and share this Geekly journey through life with!
Personally, I am into collecting action figures, reading comic books, playing video games, fishing, hiking, camping, & golfing. One of my favorite aspects of running Dontforgetatowel.com is getting to attend events like NYCC and ToyFair, where we have been making connections in the industries and meeting some awesome people! We have a lot of great things planned for DFAT in the coming year, so please join us as we continue to bring you the interviews, reviews, news, and more that YOU, our faithful Towelites, want to read about and maybe along the way learn something! As always, Stay Tooned!

Hello all, Mozeus here. It’s been over 12 years since college; 12 years since Chaz and I studied film together; in fact, 12 years since I’ve actually seen and hung out with Chaz. And yet films, music, games, and everything geeky has kept us in touch. And here I am, excited and happy to actually be able to contribute to this fun and informative site! (thanks Chaz)
About me? I love stories… in books, movies or games, I’m there. I’m more a fan of the gritty and dramatic (ie, I would pick Darren Aronofsky over Michael Bay), but whether something is my taste/style or not, I will always give credit where credit is due. I have to admit, my tastes are very particular, but this is something you’ll come to see through my own articles here. So, it begins… Let’s see where this goes!
Cherimonster lives in Garden City, MI where she is an amazing mother of two boys, 1 annoying dog and 2 cats, and has been married to her totally awesome husband for five years. By day she is an assistant warehouse manager. By night she fights crime with her mind because she is telepathic and too lazy to get off her couch. Her interests include TV shows, like, but not limited to Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Glee, Degrassi (every generation because they all ROCK), The Walking Dead and Shameless. She also reads books written by the amazing Neil Gaiman, George RR Martin, Terry Pratchett, Lish McBride, Charlaine Harris and Robert McCammon.
When asked to contribute to this page by her long time pen pal Chaz, she thought, is the world ready for this? Then she decided, screw the world!!! She will be contributing whatever is asked of her and also what she feels the world of the Towelites need to know.
Greetings, I am Doc Palindrome (J. Donavan Edmond). I am a seeker of mysteries, master of the arcane sciences, and sage on the unknown. Chaz approached me and asked that I lend my vast stores of knowledge to the already prodigious collections. I have offered my services and will contribute on as regular basis as possible. However, I make this offer to you, dear reader: whatever questions you may have on the mysterious worlds of comics, you may present to me.
I have been reading comics for more than three decades. In that time, I have poured over the vast quantities of genre lore: role-playing games, films, television, video games, etc. I have described myself to people as likely knowing more about comics than anyone you have ever met (if you have met Mark Waid, then you have met someone who knows more than I do). I’ve been offering articles to various fanzines and online sources for the last decade. I have published my own RPG supplements and am working on my first actual pen-and-paper game. I hope to offer a unique perspective, here, and maybe learn a little bit while on the journey.
Here’s my contact info: email@example.com
The Myrrick is most often found terrorizing Steam and consuming deceptively difficult indie games, activating cheat codes in RPGs and screaming at Origin. Sometimes she blogs about her adventures and occasionally stream-bombs her friends at twitch.tv.
While she has a degree in journalism, she spends more time punching reporters than being one. She can go on and on and on about anything nerdy and is always looking for something new and awesome.
Hello Towelites, My name is TheTruthSayer. I was introduced to DFAT by my friend, Cynicnerd, several years ago. I love everything geeky. I’m a trekker, a comic book collector, and a lover of everything science fiction, fantasy, and cartoons. I was raised watching Saturday morning cartoons. Shows like Transformers, G.I Joe, Voltron, and Thundercats. They gave an escape from the real world and I never left. Even though I work full time at an insurance company, I escape into my world filled with monsters, time travel, space travel, andcartoons, WALKING DEAD (that’s right I am a Dead Head and proud of it). I am also a Whovian, and a Jedi Knight. DFAT gave me the opportunity to express my views on the upcoming movies, the hottest tv shows, and everything in the comic universe. I never had anyone to talk to about my passion until I found DFAT and Cynicnerd. I’m neither a rocket scientist nor a brilliant mathematician, but what I am is a kid at heart with a limitless sponge trying to soak up everything that will broaden my knowledge. So all you Towelites, follow me and join me on a wild ride to undiscovered wonders and fantastic stories.
My name is Oberon, but my friends and family call me Obie. I am 27 years old. I joined the Marine Corps at 18 right after high school, and after my training at Parris Island, I went to MOS school in Mississippi and then to Arlington Virginia to work at the Headquarters of Marine Corps Aviation at the Pentagon. After four years there and many very interesting stories I decided to move back home to get married and start a family. My wife and I bought a house almost a year ago and are expecting our first child this year. I started college while in Virginia and finished my first degree in Business in 2009 and decided to go back to school and I am now finishing my bachelors in Psychology. I also was able to publish a book of all the poetry I wrote from age 12 to 18 about a year ago. It is called “When it rains…” and you can buy it HERE. My Hobbies currently include working out, wood working, and maintaining my house and playing with my dog Bruce Wayne and cat Harley Quinn.
My name is LastUrsa and I consider myself to be a 21st Century Bard. When I’m not busy playing every JRPG I can find or watching any and all Mech Anime available I’m working in technical support. I have two degrees in music education and I am equally inspired by music of all styles.
I am here to write about video games, but may also look to dabble in a bit of my travels with anime and with table top role playing. I’m thankful for Chaz for turning me on to this blog and look forward to sharing my adventures with all of you!
You can find me on the twitters at @LastUrsa or on my blog entitled “Harmonious Geek” (Link -http://harmoniousgeek.blogspot.com/).
Rochester, NY native who has managed to explore some of the country and find that home is where the heart is. I have a degree in liberal arts with a concentration in public relation studies. Currently working for a communications company while I wait to get back into the media game. I am nerdy on the inside, but don’t get me talking about the Marvel cinematic universe or Doctor Who because then I will look like the biggest nerd you will ever meet.
I am the producer of Don’t Forget a Podcast, and with my almighty white board, I try to get the rest of the DFAT crew to chat about what you want to hear! ~Kristen
Hey! I’m Chelsea, also known as Chela, and I’m your manic pixie nerd girl. I had a happy childhood, which was great because my older brothers introduced me to Star Trek, video games, and a whole host of other geeky pursuits, but also kinda sad because now I don’t have a tragic superhero backstory. C’est la vie, I suppose. I like technology, the PC gaming master race, too many TV shows to list here, using my film degree to pretentiously discuss the cinematic Marvel Universe, and MINI Coopers. You can follow me on Twitter @akachela, or check out my writings on the non-nerdy parts of life at akachela.com.
My name is Tim McDonald (InfinityLantern) and I am a Level 6 nerd/spaz. My friends would describe me as having an obscene amount of comic book knowledge, a penchant for fast food, and an appreciation of all forms of entertainment. I have been a comic fan since I was about 7 or 8. My nerd creds include playing many different RPG tabletop games, participating in Tekken tournaments when arcades were a thing and one of the first things I ever read was a Star Trek TOS fan script that my mother wrote.
The mystery surrounding this native of Richmond, Va is about as transparent as a piece of cellophane. He is a comic enthusiast who spends far too much money every week on his addiction. He is absolutely no fun to go to movies with because his time spent studying film has taught him to over analyze every single aspect of both the technical and story-telling sides of cinema. He enjoys almost all kinds of music from Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada to The Smiths and David Bowie. He considers himself as something of a writer, having written an avalanche worth of short scripts, short stories, poems and his very first comic book. He maintains the idea that you can tell a great deal about a person by the things that they carry with them at any given point in the day. He also thinks that repetition is an effective, yet absolutely annoying way to write a description about himself. He likes to think humility is a good trait, but likes to spread it a bit thick, don’t you think? To some he is Clay Parrish, but to a confused and mildly uncomfortable few, he is The Clotch!
