Nerd Alert

As you may or may not have noticed, the nerd world celebrated Wonder Woman’s 75th birthday yesterday. While this is technically incorrect (she didn’t appear in comic books until December 1941), the celebration was tied to her appointment as an honorary U.N. ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls. Unsurprisingly, the move sparked a backlash, proving that William Moulton Marston’s superheroine is as controversial as ever.

Though I certainly understand the reasons for the criticism, as a recent Wonder Woman convert, I still wanted this week’s “Nerd Alert” to honor Princess Diana of Themiscyra. As such, all of the links below are Wonder Woman-related. Enjoy!  Read More

Happy Saturday nerds!!! Boy, does it feel good to be back! I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately – thanks to a birthday weekend that didn’t quite go as planned, some intense binge watches of A Chef’s Table (you can blame the Mysterious Mr. C for that), and AwesomeCon last weekend – but I’m feeling reinvigorated and re-inspired once again.

Yet even though I wasn’t actively posting, I was still compiling some fun links, so you may have already seen a few of these stories. If so, I hope they still bring a smile to your face. And if not, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!  Read More

Nerd Alert

It has been a bit of a crazy week over here at GeekyNerdy HQ, what with me writing three posts in as many days, but it’s been a lot of fun too. Of course, it’s reminded me that I want to do a wholesale overhaul of the blog’s design, update my tagging structure, and all sorts of other behind-the-scenes fixes, so my weeks likely aren’t going to be slowing down any time soon. That said, it’s nice to feel the inspiration again and now that the sun is finally shining here in DC, I feel like anything is possible! Have a great weekend guys! Read More

Yeesh! As I was pulling this “Nerd Alert” together, I discovered that my last post nearly a month ago was a link roundup and that came over a month after the last alert! Clearly my schedule fell apart a bit – mostly thanks to a complete lack of inspiration – but I binge-watched the second season of the CW’s iZombie this past weekend, and the Mysterious Mr. C and I are going to see Captain America: Civil War in a few hours, so it’s safe to say that my geekynerdy juices are flowing again and I am so excited to get back down to business! Hopefully you guys have a great Saturday too and I will see you back here on Monday! Read More

Nerd Alert

Wow, I just looked up my last “Nerd Alert” to see how long it had actually been since I put one together and it was over a month ago! I mean I knew it had been awhile, but I didn’t realize that it had been that long between posts. Part of the delay was due to the general creative funk that I was in, and part of it was because the Mysterious Mr. C and I were focusing on annoying, but necessary tasks like paying our taxes. All of that is done know though, so I am finally back! Admittedly, I’m back with links that are a little all over the place, but hopefully you find one or two of interest!  Read More
