About The Two Gay Geeks

Ben and Keith are The Two Gay Geeks behind TG Geeks Webcast, where our motto is “You name it, We talk about it.” ®

Our website, tggeeks.com, is the headquarters for our Webcast as well as articles and reviews on a variety of subjects.

We cover all aspects of Geek-dom and Nerd-ery. As our motto implies, we talk about almost anything. We do tend to talk more about Sci-Fi, Comics, Film, Horror, and Genre, but we have been known to talk about Opera and Disneyland on occasion.

We are passionate about supporting Independent Creators whether that is film, comics, music, or authors we are always open to talking with creators of all types.

So, come along and join our wildest ride in the podosphere.

Carmen: The Graphic Novel

 

 
Perhaps the most famous opera in history, Georges Bizet’s Carmen premiered in 1875 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris. The four-act opera, featuring a libretto written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy and adapted from the novella by Prosper Mérimée, remains one of the most exciting and popular works in the repertoire. And now, nearly 150 years later, the story of Carmen is being adapted again — this time as CARMEN: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, written by opera singer and director Alek Shrader and illustrated by legendary artist P. Craig Russell (Neil Gaiman’s American Gods) and Aneke, and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Arizona Opera will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for this ambitious adaptation early next year with a pre-launch page live now.

The Copper Queen at Phoenix Film Festival

 

 

Still healing from her grandmother’s death, Addison Moore finds herself checking into The Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee, Arizona. Aware of the ghost stories and hauntings, Addison fearlessly elects to stay in Room 315, the location of the heartbroken Julia Lowell’s death a century ago.

But what draws Addison to Room 315? And why does she want to face Julia’s ghost?

The Copper Queen Film features Arizona Opera’s first ever all-female director/conductor/designer team, helmed by Crystal Manich, and is being produced in association with Manley Films.
 

 

The Copper Queen will be showing at Phoenix Film Festival on April 4th at 7:15 PM and April 7th at 12:30 PM.
