About

Hi,
I’m Joe and I run a positive geek culture website for Michigan called MIGeekScene. It’s pronounced as My Geek Scene. There are numerous websites out there that feed into negativity. MIGeekScene is no such place. Let’s have fun and enjoy our geekdom in a positive manner. MIGeekScene is for everyone no matter what your background is.

I am also a geek journalist that travels all over Michigan and chronicles the geek community in the state. The geek community is filled with awesome people. I am on a journey to meet as many of them as possible.

I take a ton of photos at the events that I venture to. Cosplayers are featured often in my albums (and by often I mean A LOT). If you take the time to dress up, whether you made your costume or you bought it, I will take the time to take your photo. If you are not cosplaying, I still will take your photo if you want me to. Why leave people out? All photos are taken with permission.

Check out fun and engaging interviews that do not have the same tired questions that are asked by everyone else. I interview people in the Michigan geek community ranging from local talented artists, cosplayers and awesome businesses. I, also, interview TV actors, comic book artists and voice actors in the geek entertainment industry.

Are you wondering what events are happening throughout the year? By all means, please check out the Map of Events tab. Anime, steampunk, comic book, LARPing, furry, video game and many other events of geekdom are represented in the extensive event calendar. You can save the events to your calendar and get directions to the event from my calendar.

Thanks for checking out MIGeekScene. Come back often, as  in multiple times everyday often. Tell your friends too.

Hope to see you at an event sometime.
Joe

      Probably all of them. I took over a 1000 photos this weekend. I have to sift through them. I will get them up fairly soon. Thanks for finding me and leaving a comment. Please check out the upcoming events tab for a lot of events going on through Michigan.

  • I have plans to go to the Cadillac con on april 18th. Do you need any coverage?

  • Shawn Reever

    does the site have an rss feed?

        A feed for the calendar would be cool… or if you published it as a Google Calendar, even better. 🙂

          I will look into a calendar feed. However, you can store the dates in your Google Calendar or ICal from my calendar.

            Sure, of course. By “store” you mean “type.” THE HORROR.

    Hi Joe! I’m moving to Michigan (Lake Orion area) from San Diego, and am so happy to have found this site! I’ve been fairly spoiled with ComiCon, my Nerd Meetup group (Active Lifestyle Nerds), Gaslight Gathering (an awesome Steampunk convention), and RenFaire, and thought I was going to have to give up on this type of fun when I moved to Michigan…

    then I found you… and the clouds parted… and the sun shone… and angels sang…

    well, ok… it’s actually gray and drizzly here (believe it or not), but I’m still really excited to know this page exists 🙂

    I will “like” your Facebook page in an effort to stay on top of upcoming events, but noticed that if you send out a little note in this discussion whenever you add something new to the calendar, Disqus will send me a notification 😉

    ::::::: hint, hint :::::::

    Anyway, hope to meet you at one of the upcoming events!

      Thank you for the message. I’m glad you found my website. I update the calendar at random intervals whenever dates become available. Every Sunday, I release the Events for the Week update. If you sign up for notifications on facebook, you should be able to see what’s going on.
      If you are interested in Steampunk activities in Michigan, check out the Capitol Steam group from Lansing and the upcoming Motor City Steam Con in Detroit.

      I hope this helps.
      Joe

    Hi Joe, Do you know of anyone who might be willing to be a guest speaker at an Anime Club in the metro Detroit area? I’m starting one at the library I work for. You can email me at [email protected]
