COMPETITION:Win A  Copy of Silicon Valley Season 1

25 Mar, 2015

To celebrate the release of Silicon Valley on Blu-Ray & DVD we are giving you the chance to win a copy of the hit show on DVD.   “A superb demolition of dotcom culture” –Daily Telegraph “HBO finds its best full-on comedy in years” –The Hollywood Reporter SILICON VALLEY SEASON ONE RELEASED ON BLU-RAY & DVD 23RD MARCH 2015 ALSO AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD The socially challenged underdogs of the lucrative world of tech start-ups are finally uncovered in the painfully funny SILICON VALLEY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES released on Blu-ray and DVD from the 23rd March 2015, courtesy of HBO. From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (Office Space, Idiocracy), this critically-acclaimed HBO comedy takes viewers inside the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley. Inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80’s, the show follows the trials and tribulations of awkward computer programmer Richard (Thomas Middleditch – The Wolf of Wall Street), who lives in a “Hacker Hostel” along with his friends Big Head (Josh Brener – The Big Bang Theory), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr – This Is The End), and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani – Sex Tape). Under the watchful eye of Erlich (T.J. Miller – Transformers: Age of Extinction), a dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free (as long as he gets a 10% stake in their projects), the friends struggle to break into the elusive and lucrative market. Richard is stuck in a part-time job at tech company Hooli, and his obscure website, Pied Piper, is going nowhere fast. But when a colleague realises just how valuable the site’s compression algorithm is, Richard finds himself caught in the middle of an extreme bidding war between Hooli founder Gavin Belson (Matt Ross – American Horror Story) and independent billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch – The Master). Combining brilliant observational comedy with a fantastic cast and razor-sharp dialogue, SILICON VALLEY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES taps into the zeitgeist in a completely unique way and shows, in the funniest way possible, how often the people most qualified to succeed are really the least capable of handling success.  SILICON VALLEY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES PRODUCT INFORMATION   Title:                           ...

Welcome back Anne Rice and Lestat

Welcome back Anne Rice and Lestat

17 Oct, 2014

After a break of over 10 years from The Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice has brought Lestat back in her new novel ‘Prince Lestat’.  And keep glued to Geek Syndicate for news of how to win a signed copy of this book. The vampire world is in crisis – their kind has been proliferating out of control and, thanks to technologies undreamed of in previous centuries, they can communicate as never before. Roused from their earth-bound slumber, ancient ones are in thrall to the Voice: which commands that they burn fledgling vampires in cities from Paris to Mumbai, Hong Kong to Kyoto and San Francisco. Immolations, huge massacres, have commenced all over the world. Who – or what – is the Voice? What does it desire, and why?  There is only one vampire, only one blood drinker, truly known to the entire world of the Undead. Will the dazzling hero-wanderer, the dangerous rebel-outlaw Lestat heed the call to unite the Children of Darkness as they face this new twilight?  Anne Rice’s epic, luxuriant, fiercely ambitious new novel brings together all the worlds and beings of the legendary Vampire Chronicles, from present-day New York and Ancient Egypt to fourth-century Carthage and Renaissance Venice; from Louis de Pointe du Lac; Armand the eternally young; Mekare and Maharet; to Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and ultimate fixer from the Secret Talamasca; and Marius, the true child of the Millennia. It also introduces many other seductive supernatural creatures, and heralds significant new blood. Price Lestat is due out 30th October, but in the meantime check out some questions from a recent Q&A Anne Rice carried out. 1. What inspired you to return to Lestat after more than a decade?  New ideas. New visions. New possibilities. At the time I retired from the Chronicles (2003) I really had no more to say with Lestat. I associated the Chronicles with some of the most painful parts of my life. But as the years passed, I kept thinking of Lestat, wondering what he would think about this or that cultural development, what he might have to say about this or that new film or book. He was alive for me, out...
