Music Enthusiasm (or, What Happens When the Head Nerd Sees One of Her Favorite Musical Groups)

I may not be quite so obvious about it, but I am definitely a huge music nerd – I grew up in a household that not only loved listening to music, but everyone was musically inclined to some degree. ¬†My mom played trumpet, I played clarinet and piano, and my sister played alto sax and […]

Beth’s Craft Picks of the Week – 6/7/13

I usually try to do these on Mondays, but better late than never, right? ūüėÄ Anyhow! ¬†Here’s this week’s crafty picks – since I’ve gotten into playing some delightfully old video games this week, like Super Mario RPG (my favorite!), this week is going to be retro game themed! Bitter Luigi Cross-Stitch Pattern Ahh, Mario, […]

Random Nerdy Adventures!

I know, I know, I’ve been neglecting the blog horribly over the past week. ¬†Blame Python. ¬†More accurately, blame three days of intense Python-learning for a class. ¬†I feel pretty darn nerdy, though, cramming so much Python into my brain in so short a time! ¬†And I just finished and submitted the final exam – […]

The Best and Worst Parts of Being A Nerd

Being a nerd sure seems like a lot of fun. ¬†You get to play lots of games, go to conventions, watch all sorts of awesome movies, and so much other stuff. ¬†However, with great awesomeness comes great responsibility, and occasionally great downfalls. ¬†This was actually one of the most requested topics on a recent poll […]

Tiny Review – Vanellope von Schweets talking doll!

I will proudly admit that I am a huge fan of Wreck-it Ralph. ¬†I’m pretty sure that’s no surprise at all to anyone who follows my blog. ¬†I’ve got quite a few Wreck-It Ralph figurines – there was a set of them I received as a holiday present from a close friend, and there’s a […]

Second Doctor Who Scarf!

Well, it only took me six months to do it this time – I finished my second Doctor Who scarf!   The scarf turned out pretty well, although there were a couple of hiccups along the way while making it, including… It turns out I used the wrong size needles. ¬†for some reason I figured […]

Costuming: Beth’s Amazing Steampunk Outfit

Well, I’ve been meaning to make this post for quite some time – and now that I’ve actually got the time to do some photographs of the smaller details and put everything together, it’s time for me to actually put all this up! ¬†Have a look at what I’ve been calling the Amazing Steampunk Outfit!

Book review: Anything Goes by John Barrowman

I’m going to preface this review with the following: I need to read more. I’ve fallen into a sad habit of watching too much television lately. ¬†Sure, there’s lots of wonderful television shows out there! ¬†Doctor Who, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Farscape, Firefly, Archer, 30 Rock, Mad Men… but I used to read […]

The Crafty Nerd Plays Video Games: Sailor Moon S Puzzle Game

I love playing video games. ¬†It’s one of the first nerdy things I’ve ever done – play games on my Atari when I was 5 years old. ¬†I especially love retro video games – the older, the better. ¬†After a friend of mine posted about the Sailor Moon games that came out for the Super […]

Comics! My Little Pony and Adventure Time

I’ve only very recently gotten back into the swing of collecting comic books again – when I was a kid, I used to collect Simpsons Comics pretty religiously, and collected stuff that Mixxzine/Tokyopop put out when I was a teenager. ¬†However, when I was in college, I sort of fell out of the collecting habit […]
