PHOTOSHOP CONTEST: Hey Hey George Takei!

Not only was this a huge check mark on my nerd bucket list, but George is a WONDERFUL man who is both gracious and kind.

I love this picture, but the background does not accurately represent the epicness of the situation. Can YOU help?


1st PRIZE: An almost one-of-a-kind (I have one) Nerdist tshirt designed by Smartbunny, and based on Wire & Twine’s CBS “SPECIAL” shirt.

RULES: Give Mr. Takei & me a worthy background! This will be a Node-based contest, which is to say that you must join the Nerdist social network experiment/nerd cluster “The Node” (it’s free and we won’t stalk you for the rest of your existence).

Follow this link to join The Node!–>

Once you have done this, post your entries on this thread–> (Any entries posted only on Nerdist or Twitter will not be counted!)

All entries must be posted by Friday, Oct. 15th, 11:59p Pacific Time.

As I said, George is a terrific dude, so offensive entries will be gleefully deleted.

    I’m soooo telling Brad about this! Shame on you!

    I love all things Star Trek so of course I love Mr. Takei but it looks like he’s been taking tanning lessons from Snooki. Good luck to everyone!

    Well. I guess I won’t enter this contest.

    How titillating. 😉

    I hope this won’t be misconstrued as a dig on George. He’s great, and I love that he keeps popping up in Futurama…. but (on a totally unrelated note!):

    I just wanted to put it out there that my friends and I (exchange students in England from around the globe) just spent most of tonight playing the Movie Titles That Sound Like Shitting game. The Nerdist podcast has truly touched our lives on the deepest of levels, and we have you to thank for that.

    Be proud.

    How exciting to get to join the Node! If only I had talent, I could have a lot of fun with this fantastic image of Chris and Mr. Takei!!!
