8-bit Me!

Chronic Geek made me this awesome 8-bit version of me!  I’ve decided to add it to my new “follow me on twitter” picture on the right.  I think she did a great job and it’s super cute!  I exchange made her a Princess Peach with pink and black hair.  Check out her blog too and she’s on twitter!

Music to Soothe the Savage Geek

Ever catch yourself daydreaming about your favorite band/artist singing about the things you really like such as like sci-fi, literature, comics, etc.?  Well dreams do come true!

I’ve been a fan of Chester French and Janelle Monae for a while.  When they combined their forces Wonder Twin style and made “Nerd Girl” I immediately declared it the theme song to my life.

And guess what?! It’s totally free the legal way!

Download Chester French’s mixtape “Nerd Girl” is on it. And buy their CD Love the Future. One half of CF is on twitter @DAchesterfrench and here is their facebook page.

I met them a few times and they are just as cool in real life as they appear to be in their songs (yes I just name dropped but I don’t have many names to drop so whenever the opportunity presents itself I take advantage and am not the least bit ashamed).

Support your fellow nerd and get Janelle Monae’s latest album ArchAndroid and her first CD Metropolis.  Check her out on twitter @janellemonae and her facebook page… btw she fancies herself an android.

“Nerd Girl”- Chester French feat. Janelle Monae


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.
