Josh Barnett: Ultimo Geeko

Josh Barnett is a huge fucking geek. And while normally I’d say props to that, I’m pretty jealous he gets to admit that fact and still have mountains of Japanese muff piled love-handle high around him. Back when I was in highschool, if I even said “Warhammer” I’d get my underwear ripped off my body via atomic wedgie. Even now, declaring my love for all the things below would probably render me an outcast from society. Yet Josh gets to do it with no fear. Bastard.

Anyways, check out his list of favorite stuff. So geeky. Goddamn.

    so does that mean I am not a dork, becuase over half of that stuff I have never heard of. Also who reads comics?? The only comic that I read is the weekly fightlinker comic. I guess I didnt know that other comics existed.

  • threatis

    mad fist bumps to Josh on the River City Ransom love.

  • Vess

    Name dropping to appeal to the geeks.

  • Fightlinker is Wrong

    Geek like this! In this new multiply-weekly Fightlinker is Wrong COMIC!

  • Sha

    Homestar Runner ?? Penny Arcade ?!?
    I knew he was a geek, but I didn’t think it went this far..

  • fightlinker

    haha nice. Fan art :-)

    Homestar runner is the lamest thing in the world. I broke up with the girl i was going to marry because she was a homestar runner fan. She tried to make it up to me by buying a penny arcade ‘wang fu’ shirt, but no dice.

  • Swedish guy

    The Hives ftw!!!

  • MadMan

    who’s got time to train, when you got a
    favorites list like that…Wow!


    Well Shit, he just went up several notches in my book!
    Slaine: The Horned God,
    Doctor Who (with Tom Baker),
    Red Dwarf,
    I’m glad to see he ommited ‘Boltthrower’ in his fave bands tho cos last time he talked about his likes he dropped that clanger.

    I bet he imagines himself as a Conanesque fur wearing Warrior when he plays RPG’s and quite possibly when he’s in bed with hordes of squealing Japanese hotties…

  • Lifer

    wow i’m playing warhammer 40k dawn of war’s newest expansion called Soulstorm. josh barnett IS me except way bigger, muscled and skilled. he’s everything i aspire to be!

  • Erin

    Shit, ain’t nothin’ hotter than a bad-ass geek.

  • fightlinker

    I wanna take him on in a magic game

  • Matt (but I signed up as Mr. Unbelievable Pants)

    Do steroids help in magical card games?

  • Jemaleddin

    Ummmm – Anita Blake Vampire Hunter is horror romance, if it’s anything like the lame comics, and I hope he’s not caught up on Punisher: War Journal because the art and story have sucked in the last two issues.

    And no Final Fantasy X or XII? Feh.

    I’d label him geek lite.

  • Accomando

    Super Tecmo Bowl fucking rules dude, don’t know what you’re talkin’ bout.

  • kentyman

    Homestar Runner is awexome.

  • Thomas aka Hattori Hanzo

    No wonder he wasent too worried about not having an organization to fight for

  • Dangerfield

    On nerd news DnD co-creator Gary Gygax recently died.

  • jackal-matt

    Allman brothers geeky? IS that a fucking typo?

  • Fatal Error

    Representing your love for 40K isn’t a bad thing, but proclaiming that you rock out to Steely Dan is where I’d draw the line.

  • E

    Both threatis and Accomando are right, River City Ransom and Super Tecmo Bowl are tits.

  • kentyman

    I want to hear Jake pronounce it “Ah-Joshu Uh-Barnetto” like they did on the Sengoku 1 broadcast.

  • cyphron

    River City Ransom was a sick game!

  • Smitler

    Holy cow…I used to work for Games Workshop man. Illustrating Warhammer and 40k was my job for 4 years.
    I’d like to think Josh Barnett paid my wages back in the day.

  • fightlinker

    Dude, I bet Josh would totally geek out to talk to you

  • RenzoHatfield

    Some of that stuff isn’t too bad, but i’m sorry folks, anime is for nerds who jerk off to cartoons.

    and the Magic the Gathering thing just proves that it’s possible to go from getting beat up in high school to beating up most of japan.

  • Matt

    Decided aginst World of Warcraft?

  • catch

    He likes Seanbaby, fucking awesome. He’s the fightlinker of videogames.

  • fightlinker

    he’s like the fedor of videogames: hasn’t done anything since 2006, but everyone still says he’s the best

  • kentyman

    He’s the milk duds of… oh nevermind.

  • Fightlinker is Wrong

    It is physically impossible to rock out to Steely Dan.

  • Fightlinker is Wrong

    I have to admit though… after reading some of that shit, I liked the cunt a little more.

    Fuck you Fightlinker, couldn’t I just have hated that overrated fat boy in peace.

  • danaunclefesterwhite

    Josh Barnett has some very diverse tastes for a geek. How often do you see geeks like that? I know people who are completely obsessed over one or two things (ie. you have your white otaku nerds who are obsessed with Japanese popular culture, your geeks who are into PC gaming and say consoles are for n00bs, and those guys who are into magic and pen & paper rpgs). But Josh Barnett is like a uber-geek, he’s all of these guys in one. All that’s left is for Barnett to say that he’s into hentai and bukkake. That would seal the deal.

  • Cam

    Anyone that’s a Firefly fan is good in my book…
