How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 233 (or “True Blood” and the necessity of small doses)


While you have kept up with the HBO vampire drama True Blood since it first premiered, you have privately debated whether or not to discontinue viewing it each season, as it just seems to get more campy and absurd each year.  Thus, when a die-hard fan of the show asked you how wonderful you would feel if the universe depicted in the series was a reality, you respond as follows:

“If I spent my life living in a True Blood universe, I think I’d spend my life annoyed with everyone around me, muttering, ‘You’ve got be kidding me’ everyday, until undereducated werewolves or overly whiny vampires attacked me and put me out of my misery.”

A farewell to “Fringe”…


The J. J. Abrams television series Fringe recently ended its five-year run on FOX, leaving an empty space in the world of nerds that was once filled with alternate universes, Red Vines, bald mystery men, and “show-me” cards.  As a tribute, we thought it appropriate to show a couple of YouTube videos that pay homage to the show, and its most unique character, Dr. Walter Bishop, portrayed by John Noble.

 

This compilation highlights many funny Walter Bishop moments up to 2010. If you have yet to see the show, this video will give you a taste of some rather great moments for which to anticipate.


This is a rather sentimental tribute video to the show's journey, but Fringe deserve some sentiment… it was a truly solid television series.

A new year, new look…


It has been awhile since my last post to ye, oh followers.  A new year has begun, and I have completed my educational pursuits with a shiny, new Master’s degree to show for it (well, it doesn’t actually shine).  As I have now begun my career as a library science professional, I have had many new items to tackle this month.  However, we will be experimenting with a new look for this, our site.  There will be new content coming very soon for all to enjoy as well.

More to follow in the coming week…
