Comic Con San Diego – Nerd Prom is On

Posted in Live Your Life with tags , , , , , on July 23, 2010 by Nourisha

I went to comic con for the first time last year and it was a major nerdgasm that I still haven’t quite recovered from. So you can imagine my sadness at not being there now to attend this year. Nerd core is in full effect in San Diego and I want to say to all those who were not lucky enough to join the fray – I feel your pain! And to those lucky bastards who are geeking out with comics, video games, pop culture and cosplay nuts, enjoy for the rest of us!

The New Dork

Posted in Geekery with tags , , , , , on March 11, 2010 by Nourisha

Yes, this video melted my heart. And why shouldn’t it? It only highlights how us geeks have gone from being social outcasts and the ridicule of mainstream cool kids to being the hottest ticket around. For the record, I rather like that my geeky nature meant I was on the fringes of society. But how much of an outcast can I be when I was the head cheerleader? To be honest, the kids still called me a nerd to my face and behind my back. They just happened to all know who I was. haha. Now things have changed. And like I told my classmates then, you better be careful how you talk to me because you might need a job from me one day! Everyone knows geeks are the ones who run the world. Now they see it in real life. So, let’s all sit back and rock out to this lovely video, New Dork!

Black Nerdy Comedy weighs in blacks in scifi

This had me cracking up! Does SciFi hate black people? Probably not. haha. But LOST and Heroes definitely did the black characters dirty!

geeks with heartToday, while you’re in the lovin’ mood, why not share your big geek heart with others.

Geek Girls Network™ & Geeky Clean have created a fundraiser to support the Haiti Relief called Geeks With Heart.

Through Mercy Corp, Geeks With Heart has a fundraising goal of $2500 and there’s no minimum for donations. If you can spare just one special cup of coffee, an iTunes download, or a crispy chicken sandwich, donate to Haiti instead. Show Haiti why geeks have heart!

As extra incentive, and not that you need any, once Geeks With Heart reaches $2500, all who donated will have the chance to win a prize from an amazing grab bag of geek prizes!

So donate, tweet it up, put a badge on your website, and tell all your friends and family. Thanks!

What kind of geek are you?

Posted in Geekery with tags , , , , , on December 21, 2009 by Nourisha

We all have a little bit of geek in us. Most people assume that because they don’t like sci-fi or fantasy or superheroes they can avoid the “geek” label. Not so my friends. There are car geeks, drama geeks, band geeks, technology geeks, science geeks, history geeks, debate geeks, literature geeks, design geeks, etc. The list goes on and on. You will no doubt find yourself in one of those categories if you have any interests that border on obsession.

To help you figure out how to get in where you fit in, I’m posting this lovely little geek diagram that I found over at Nerd Salad, because I’m here to serve you and I want to help you find your place in this great big universe.
