Talk about freaking weird news geeks! Our beloved online geek repository, ThinkGeek, is being purchased by mall centric retailer Hot Topic! I don’t know how I feel about this. I like that Hot Topic has a nice selection of video game and geek gear in their stores but they also cater to the “goth” scene too (as of the last time I stepped foot in one). Maybe the two will be separate, fingers crossed, and ThinkGeek won’t start slinging goth merch on their website. I love the ThinkGeek site as it is, I don’t want to have to sift through a bunch of “junk” just to get to the good stuff.
What do you geeks think about this bombshell? Does it make sense in some alternate universe or is it weird? Sound off in them comments!
