F*ck Me Ray Bradbury

Great authors are what us Lit Lovers daydream about!  I wonder if Ray Bradbury has seen this?  Probably not since he said that, “We’ve got too many Internets.”  Either way thank you Rachel Bloom for this sci-fi naughtiness!  And get a free Download of the video here!

Novel-T: Shirts for Lit Lovers

I first saw these Novel-T shirts on Gaming Angels and I fell in love!  Novel-T’s are jersey’s for the all-stars of literature.  There are two teams, the American Canons and the National Puncs.  They have either the author or a character’s name on the back, and an image associated with that author/character.  The shirts cost $24.95 and are made in Brooklyn.  You can order them here and they are available at select Borders Bookstore locations.  Also $1 of every Vonnegut or Trout shirt sold is donated by Novel-T to Doctors Without Borders and  $1 of every other shirt sold is donated by Novel-T to 826NYC.

My favorites are Poe (with the Raven),  Thoreau, Quixote and Gatsby.  I think the Bartleby and Emily Dickinson shirts are funny.  I also think they could have picked a much better image for Alice in Wonderland than a cupcake.  I will probably get one in the future if I can narrow my choice down to one.  I hope they do more of these!  Check out the Novel-T website to see all of the shirts I put a few more I liked in the slideshow below.

Nerdy Jewelry- Book Lover Edition

This post is the first in a series I am doing on Nerdy Jewelry (gamer and computer geeks are next). Two things I compulsively buy are jewelry and books so this is a “kill two birds with one stone” kinda post for me, and I kill a lot of damn birds.

Etsy.com is the (metaphorical) crack house to my jewelry addiction and I don’t see a need for rehab… ever.  Most of these are found on Etsy and with Googles assistance.

If you don’t know what LOTR stands for then shame on you!

What kind of geek are you?

There are so many types geeks but I’ll narrow it down to the few I care about.

Go ahead and give yourself a severe migraine trying to sort out this geek diagram!

Take the poll and comment on why you are that kind of geek or why you are all of them!

Hello Nerdom!

Well if you’ve wandered to my blog I’m going to assume you are vaguely (or extremely) interested in the wondrous world of all things geek.  If you are here for another reason this site should bring out the inner geek in you … *crosses fingers*.

Some things I’m completely obsessed with that I will featured on the blog:

  • Video Games- my brother is a hardcore gamer which may account for my love of D pads and the letters A, B, L, R and things of that nature.
  • Literature- I love everything from Shakespeare, Hemingway, James Baldwin, Chuck Palahniukk, Edwidge Danticat to J. K. Rowling.
  • Anime- I celebrate Faye Valentine’s Day on February 14th.
  • Art- I don’t think many people consider art to be geeky but it’s my blog and ima do what I want! *crosses arms and looks away*
  • Comics- Not as familiar with this medium as I’d like but being a descendant of Marvel fanboy should mean something… Right?…Right?!

Everyone feel free to send me geeky things you think I should contribute and will give you a shout out and/or link to your blog/twitter/facebook/etc.!

Some of you may (or may not) care what I look like so here’s a pic of yours truly!

Okay okay okay… so that isn’t me. But isn’t she cute?! I altered Princess Peach with the assistance of Photoshop.

Here you go! Now this nerd girl has a (non-animated) face.
