Ready for this week’s dose of geeky news, videos, blog posts, and products? Put on your cutest outfit(for fighting crime, naturally), and join me as I share the interesting tidbits from this past week.
Well, this is some news I certainly wasn’t expecting. Fingers crossed it ends up being a pretty good miniseries.
Here I am, with your odd news story of the week. Well, there’s one common myth busted.
Which Fandom Do You Actually Belong In? Quiz via Buzzfeed
Now, that big question for all geeks can be answered… If you take the quiz, comment below which fandom you got! I got Star Wars, which is not a surprise at all.
I know from the IGGPPC book club that quite a bit of our members (including me), like this genre, so I knew to put it on the weekly blog! There aren’t many book blogs that cover this genre, so I’m excited to read more!
The Mary Sue Anniversary Female Character Logos Explained via The Mary Sue
Happy belated birthday, The Mary Sue! One of my favorite geek websites, especially for women, celebrated their third birthday this week, and in honor, decided to explain their logo ladies. (Which are extremely cool).
25 Sci-Fi Games That Changed the Way We Play via Den of Geek
Oh, the nostalgia. While I personally haven’t played most of these, there are a good bit that I really want to. And I’m sure lots of Iggles have.
Pop Culture Alphabet Features The Greatest Hits of Geekdom via Nerd Approved
While there have been many of these popping up across the web, this geeky version is my favorite, mostly because it covers a broad range of interests.
33 Times Jake the Dog Was Your Spirit Animal via Buzzfeed
In my personal opinion, Jake is a huge part of why Adventure Time has been successful. Here are some of his best moments. Admit it: you totally want him as a best friend.
Jurassic World Villian Cast via The Mary Sue
Oh. My. God. You don’t understand my excitement for this movie: Jurassic Park was just one of those movies from my childhood, you know? I can’t wait until this hits theaters. I’m bummed that Jeff Goldblum nor Sam Neill aren’t coming back, though. *sad face*
The Best Group Selfie, Ever? via Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Twitter
It most certainly is up there.
Hannibal Returns For a Second Course via Geek Magazine
HANNIBAL CAME BACK ON WOOOOO LET US REJOICE. Okay, if you haven’t seen the second season, go watch it!! What are you waiting for? And if you haven’t even seen the first season yet, let this article convince you why you definitely should. Now, get on it. (WARNING: Spoilers are at the end of the article, proceed cautiously)
If you haven’t been able to tell yet, I’m a huge space geek. Much sparkle. Pretty shine. The article explains the phenom en at a more in depth level.
Kate Leth Signing / Ladies Night @ Austin Books via Girl Hero
I am insanely jealous of Lori- Kate is the creator of one of my favorite comics, Kate or Die. The rest of the event looked like a bunch of fun, too! I really need to go to a comic book store.
What does it take to make the creator of Adventure Time laugh? via Boing Boing
This is not what I thought it would be.
Fusion vs. Fission via NASA Spitzer
“When a science-mad A.I. system (voiced by GLaDOS actress Ellen McLain) is installed at NASA, two hapless computer technicians learn the process behind nuclear fusion in the Sun, and how it differs from fission.” Educational, space, and it includes a cute nod to Portal? Yes, definitely cool. It would be awesome if they could get other famous sci-fi robots to explain other important space things.
Ranting about Books via vlogbrothers
In which Hank Green shares all the different pet peeves of book lovers. Just watch the video, and you’ll understand. (I also cannot stand stickers on books, I have to peel them off immediately after buying).
DC Comics Dinnerware is Appropriately Unbreakable via That’s Nerdalicious!
Yes, I’m a 17 year old, and I still want that Wonder Woman dinnerware set. SO CUTE. And they’re plastic, so my clumsy self wouldn’t break them. Perfect.
Do you love sweaters? Do you love Harry Potter? If you answered yes to both, I would look into getting one of these sweaters.
Simple, pretty and geeky is always the way to go.
Smelly good things and fandoms are two of my favorite things. Add those two together, and you have an explosion of awesomeness. I especially want the Butterbeer scented candle and Sonic Screwdriver lip balm.
Meanwhile, on Tumblr…
Awwww. They seriously are one of the cutest couples onscreen right now.
I laughed so much when I first saw this. 😀
Seriously, though, how are they that blind?
And that’s all for this week, folks. Stay tuned for next week’s news, and have a great week!
Hugs & Best Wishes,
