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? 😀 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 […]
