How The Internet Made Nerds Cool

How The Internet Made Nerds Cool

There was a time when being the sort of person who wore glasses, had braces, liked books and/or did well in school made you a target for bullying. I think, among younger people, this is still the case. I know that at primary school I was constantly being called a ‘bodrick’ (however that’s really spelt) because I was clever. But for the older ones, who spend their time on internet and watching YouTube videos, it’s ceased to be an insult….

Feather Pen Friday: Dun?

Feather Pen Friday: Dun?

Okay, so I think I’ve been reading the NaNoisms forum too much because I originally intended to call this post ‘Done?’. However I like the new version and have left it be. Well, a couple of days ago I finished the third book in my trilogy. It’s called Returning (the book, not the trilogy), although I’m probably going to change that name, and it’s finished. Hooray. Unfortunately, I began it while the second one was still a first draft –…

Mad Monday: Still Got Legs review

So, yesterday Chameleon Circuit’s CD, “Still Got Legs” finally arrived. Hooray! Amusingly, to those who know what I’m talking about, the postmarks informed me that the parcel had gone via France. Paris, in fact. It was posted from America – looks like it did a Michael Aranda. Let me tell you about Chameleon Circuit. They are an incredibly nerdy band who write songs about Doctor Who. The name, Chameleon Ciruit, is referring to the part of the TARDIS that is…

Terrible Tuesday: Because I forgot to post yesterday….

Demo will be up on YouTube shortly, thought you might like to see the writing side of it all… Anwen in Pink Born amidst the darkness, A child of fights and war, Who grew up in her mother’s arms, And who knows what she saw? We couldn’t hide forever They’d find us soon enough. I only thought to keep her safe, Don’t…

Something Saturday: A Lot Of Rain and Branching Out

Something Saturday: A Lot Of Rain and Branching Out

First of all, it’s raining right now. Like, a lot. Like, if I was outside right now the white, extremely piratical shirt that I’m wearing would be see-through in about 0.5 of a second. it’s rain that’s going practically horizontal because of the wind and it looks horrible. So glad I’m inside just watching it from my window :) Secondly, I’ve been branching out a little and I’m forming a band. Though this is really a topic for my other…
