Rants: Transformers: Age of Extinction (SPOILERS!!!!!)

I have a few qualms about this movie. Alex and I went to go watch it last night, and it was nice since we hadn't been to the movies in a while. We even got popcorn. Here's my list.

-Why do we not know the name of the only woman with any backbone in the entire movie?! The asian woman, who was in charge of the Chinese KSI factory, Why did they not bother to tell us her name? This frustrated me pretty badly during the entire movie! This is the fourth installment, Why have none of the leading women been LEADERS?! C'mon Transformers, women are watching you as well, and you are letting us down, hella hardcore! Megan Fox. Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Nicola Peltz. FAIL.  In case you were wondering her name is Su Yueming, and she kicked ass in this movie. As far as female lead goes, she takes the cake.

-Tessa's uselessness. She is the female lead. Yes her father is strict,
yes her father is poor, so is a lot of dads. Get over yourself! From
 the beginning something about that girl got on my nerves, but when
 things came down to the wire, and she was just being a whining useless brat, oooh, that irked me like no other!  You are standing on Tightrope anchors to get to safety! WHY ARE YOU CRAWLING BACKWARD?!?! It's not like the ship is SAFER then the building, the building with no human hungry animal bots that want to eat you! Then she couldn't even follow simple
orders, ugh she just really pissed me off. None of the female leads in the transformer series are of any use. NONE of them. That is so disheartening.

-The Realtor. Why did she have to be soo ghetto? As a woman of color, I am SO TIRED of hollywood portraying us this way. There are SO many different types of people in the world, so why are we being portrayed in only two ways. I was really super hoping that she was working with the transformers, or that her car was a transformer. But then she never pops up again!


-The Dino Bots. Just how long did Lockdown have them caged? If they literally came as dinosaurs roamed, and then were caught by lockdown. Optimus set them free, but where would they go? Would they take up space at the creation museum? Alex says they'd get re-scanned and then live among us, but if they are really that OLD, do they even have the ability/technology to re-scan into a new form? If so, they were pretty uncivilized, so would they just eat people, as cars? Who would teach them how to blend in??? I think it was kind of irresponsible for Optimus to just let them out like that.. But maybe that's just me. 

-The CIA's Pr DepartmentHow in the WORLD is the CIA gonna clean up Cemetery Wind's mess? Like it was probably a little feesable when they were in texas, but once they moved to China, that shit hit the fan, How in the world are they gonna cover that up? How in the world are they going to fix it? I mean I know  its China and the government over there pretty much covers up everything, but seriously... They destroyed an entire bridge and was dropping Metal Vehicles from giant space ships, There is not enough WOOL in the WORLD. If I worked in that department, I would have Definitely put in my two weeks. The guy responsible has a pot sized hole in his chest, he's not going to be held responsible, or even be able to explain it.

 Overall this movie gets 2 out of 10. It could have been better in every way shape and form. Come better hollywood, we pay your bills, at least stop feeding us shit.

Stay nerdy Sugars,

Gamer Famelle: Mariko of Gamer Wife

 Gamer Famelle is back and with a whole new host of kick-ass gaming women!! Today, it is a huge pleasure for me to be featuring Mariko of GamerWife. One of THE most professional gaming blogs, on my to read list! Without further ado, lets get this segment on the road!

Displaying Geek With a Gun - Big.pngGF: Favorite Console? DS/XBOX/PS/PC?

MM: The PS3 was the first console I owned as an adult, so I'd have to say I'm a PS girl, but still do most of my gaming on my PC or my tablet.


GF: Favorite Game character role model?

MM: FemShep! She's the ultimate female superhero because
 being female for her is completely incidental. She's the first 
character I really identified with and put myself into.

GF: If you could be any game character who would you be and why?

MM: Oddly enough, probably Joker from Mass Effect because he gets to fly the Normandy and I'm kind of a space ship nerd.

GF: If you had to live inside a video game which one would you choose and why?

MM: Little Big Planet, because everything is so fun and happy and positive. Or Mass Effect, because space.

GF: Did you come across any videogame Soundtracks that just spoke to you?

MM: Even though I can't play the game myself (I just don't have the reflexes) I was playing the soundtrack for Hotline Miami on a loop for about 2 months straight! It's so pulsing and spooky, perfect for concentrating at work.

GF: How long have you been gaming?

MM: That's kind of a tough question for me because while I did play NES as a kid I kind of put gaming aside for a long time until I moved to Montreal and suddenly found myself working in the industry and playing games every day for my job. I guess if we're going by when I started gaming consistently, then maybe 6 years? But if we go from when games first entered my life, then it's probably closer to 25 years (yes, I am that old).

GF: What was your first game/console?

MM: Super Mario Bros. on the NES, although Bubble Bobble and Dr. Mario were more my games.

GF: Do you share gaming with your significant other/Children?

MM: YES! I would definitely attribute a lot of my love for games now to my husband Rick. He's the main gameplayer in our household and we're always looking for games we can play together. We just started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic together while he's away on business and it's been a great way for us to spend time together when we're on opposite sides of the continent.

GF: What Video Game Crossovers are you wishing were real?

MM: I saw an illustration mashing up Fez and Katamari Damacy that made me really excited, but I think that game would break my brain.

GF: Any Games that you've been obsessing over but haven't bought yet?

MM: Actually, between me and Rick we probably have all the games I've ever wanted to play. lol The hard part is finding time to play the all.

GF: If your house was on fire and you had to take three things related to gaming what would you choose and why?

MM: The video game character beadsprites that we used as table markers at our wedding, because they remind me of our big day; my Samus at the Farmer's Market print because it cheers me up; and our PS4 because it gives me movies and TV and games.

You can check out Mariko at her various internet hangouts:

Until next time Stay Nerdy,

The worst movie ever:Doom Asylum

  Everyone knows that I love movies. All kinds of movies, comedies, animated movies, and especially scary movies! I absolutely adore scary movies, ones that actually do a good job of scaring me, and then ones that don't do the greatest job. One of those movies would be Doom Asylum, an 1987 Marx original. My dad and I have this thing, we like to watch really bad scary movies and laugh ourselves silly. I've written about a few of the ones we'd happened to come across before, but even we couldn't anticipate coming across this gem.
  Doom Asylum follows eight teenagers as they trespass upon a deserted asylum with a horrible legend! Ten years ago, a couple in the love were heading on vacation and were involved in a terrible car crash, which ended up in the death of the wife and the man in pretty bad condition to be sent to the morgue. Wherein, he was skinned, even though he was still alive. He killed the coroner and assistant and then went on to kill all passerby, in hopes of bringing his beloved back to life.
  Apart from the HIDEOUS eighties fashion, yellow and white plaid board shorts anyone? The acting was some of the worst I'd seen in my entire life, even worse then me and my sisters debut in the haunted mansion, (thankfully no one ever will see.) It was an entire laugh fest. The movie only lasted an hour and eighteen minutes and we laughed for everyone of them.
  In great eightie's fashion, The only black people ended up together and Dead. There was a blonde in a horrible swimsuit, and I honestly could write all day, but it wouldn't do it justice, you just have to watch it.



Please Please, I'm begging you, As soon as you see enough talk to me in the comments.

Keep it Nerdy Gang,
~Spokhette!~

Fangirling: Veronica Mars

I love everything about mysteries. Solving them, creating them, reading them, watching them or playing them. It doesn't matter what format they come in, I enjoy them immensely. Probably due to my mothers love for them, they were constantly playing when I was little. As I've grown up, my love for mystery solving mcgyvers has only grown exponentially. I'll be fangirling about Veronica Mars today. This isn't the first time I've written about my girl love for Veronica Mars on the blog.
 The reason I chose Veronica is not because her movie came out recently, or that Pivot Television has recently started to show her on repeat. The reason I chose Veronica is because she is one of my favorite female detectives of all time. She was the perfect alternative for girls who were tired of Nancy Drew always being captured in chapter 22 of her OWN books!
  For those not in the know, Veronica Mars is a high school detective in Neptune, California. A melting pot of the most fortunate haves and the unfortunate have nots. This creates an uneasy tension in the community that culminates in many a death, and many a case for curious Veronica to solve. One of the things I really loved about Veronica Mars was she always gave you the benefit of the doubt. Weevil Navaro, was constantly in trouble. constantly in a case file being slid across the desk of her P.I. father. I only remember three crimes off the top of my head that he was ACTUALLY guilty of. People saw a Hispanic boy from the "wrong side of the tracks" and thought what better a scapegoat? I love the relationship she has with Weevil. No matter how much they fought, She was always there to bail him out and visa versa. They were constantly there for each other, their extremes balances each other like a calibrated scale, She brought out the best in Weevil, and Weevil brought out the best in her.
  There are few reasons why I really like Veronica Mars, as a character. She is independent. She doesn't need anyone, and she doesn't want anyone, they just kinda show up and if they aren't too annoying she lets them stay. Her wit in the show is a second only to Mac, and her Father. Her sarcasm, is unmatched, I vow everyday, to keep my sarcasm sword strong because of her. The show was just appealing. It didn't make you feel like you were a moron, and it didn't want you to be a moron.
  Veronica, wasn't the best at picking out guys, but man she was the best at giving them what they deserved! Duncan, Troy, Piz, Logan. Who wouldn't fall for a bad boy? Especially one with Logan's gorgeous abs? She was never sad for very long, she showed everyone that she didn't NEED a man, she just enjoyed the company they brought. She realized that company could be supplied by anyone, and that she didn't have to deal with Bullshit to get what she wanted.  She got her private Eye license on her 18th birthday after all!
  Three reasons to watch Veronica Mars (If I don't sum it up now, We'll literally be here all day.) :

1. Veronica is a strong Willed intelligent woman, who had no problem telling you what she wanted, when she wanted it, and who from. She refused to let society, 09ers, or even authority control her. A role Model for the new gen.

2. Veronica was Forgiving. She didn't hold a grudge, but I loved that (almost) everyone who deserved it, sure as hell got it. She showed that it was possible to be a total bitch, and a complete marshmallow and that there was a balance. Everyone should strive for that balance, I do everyday.

3. The mysteries were worth solving. They were important. They were well written. They were continuous to the arc of the season, there was never an episode that didn't matter, never an episode with fluffy filler. That's great writing. I will recommend it until People's ears fall off, because they need to watch it, A.S.A.P.

Stay Nerdy,

Summer Anime Watching List

 Aren't you guys excited? I'm totally not Dead! It's a good thing I'm writing today, it would have been an entire month tomorrow! Today, I'm going to talk about the Anime I have lined up to watch this summer. Since I have a lot more free time, and will soon have Internet access all of the time. I don't have it now in my apartment, and it makes blogging so much more difficult, because even though I have unlimited data on my phone, Sprint's reception sucks. So often, I can't connect. I'll be moving within the next couple of weeks, So I'll have connection soon enough! Then I'll be blogging so much you guys will be begging to get rid of me. Bwahahahahah! I've mentioned anime a few times on the blog, usually in a recap post about what I did that week. I've been trying to get Alex more into it, like his brothers, and have been introducing him to new stuff. Without, further a do, my list!

- Sailor Moon Crystal: (Started) Sailor Moon was my first anime, without it, I'm positive I would not be the person that I am today. So when I heard that Viz Media had bought the rights and were going to do a remake version that "more closely" mirrored the manga, I was beyond STOKED! What I'm not stoked about is that we had to wait for like 12 years (Still didn't get the starlight saga) and now that they've finally re-done it, I have to wait for new episodes to come out. (Im not the most patient anime watcher.) This opening has been on repeat all day!

- Brother's Conflict: (Started)  I'm a huge hypocrite. I will talk your head off about why I won't watch anime like Dear S and Queens Blade, with their impossible proportions and their 1 man for 25 women mentality. But I will hop into my skivvies, with a giant box of ritz and a 12 pack of soda and watch the mess out of reverse harem animes! Ouran High School, and Now Brother's Conflict. I'm on episode 4 of 12, but out of all 13 step-brothers, I NEED her to be with Azusa. I NEED IT, IT FUELS me. This opening has been on repeat all day!

- Rin- Daughters of Mnemosyme: (Not started) I've tried to watch it a few times, before but couldn't get over the goriness of it. It's only 6 episodes for goodness sakes, and I'm gonna finish it, and stop being such a wimp. Plus the art is gorgeous.

- Kill La Kill: (Not Started) I really want to start this soon. SOO many people have been talking about it and telling me that its one of the best animes to come out in the longest time, and all this hype is making me anxious to start it, but I just haven't yet. So I've decided to add it to my list.

- Attack on Titan: (Not Started) Another really popular anime out right now. There are at least four people at work with Attack on Titan belts. (Why belts? Not sure) But they've been hounding me to start watching it because I'm one of the only people that work there that watches anime.



Are you guys watching any new anime I should know about? I'm always up for something new!!!
Stay Nerdy,

Last Sunday

 Sunday, Alex and I spent the day catching rays of sunshine, lounging in the family pool and watching Both Maleficent and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Even though, I want to tell you all about each particular movie, not everyone has seen it yet, and I will not be blamed for spoilers. All I will say, is Maleficent was extremely empowering especially for a Disney movie. X-Men, literally fixed every mistake they had made. EVER. I was NOT a fan of quicksilver's costume, but hey, everything can't be perfect. But the Movie, unlike Spider-man 2 DEFINITELY lived up to the hype!
 If you were on the fence about going to see either one of these movies, I need you to climb over to the side of yes and go see these movies immediately. As mentioned in early posts, I've been working more, leaving less time to spend with Alex, so we decided that we would have date day and go see two movies! It was super fun having a double feature, the usher/ticket clerk? recognized us, laughed and asked us how Maleficent was, I gave my honest opinion. Everyone in the world should go see that movie A.S.A.P! We went out, and picked me up a bathing suit, and enjoyed the beautiful sun, it was so warm outside, plus the fact that they keep their pool heated, meant I nearly fainted from the heat, but I looked cute, so I didn't complain!   
  We also started Claymore, a (new to me) anime with his family. It wasn't too shabby. Not a fan of the violence. Villages in Japan are being attacked by Youma (Vampires) and the weapons humans have are Claymore, female humans that have been breeded with Youma genes, that can kill them. Sometime's I forget that Alex lives with his brothers. They were trying to get me to watch Queen's Blade. But that shit was NOT about to fly! Silly Silly Boys. 

Until Next Time,

I wish He was Real: Dr. Spencer Reid

 I have seen every episode of Criminal Minds. I can be total honest, and say that this television program had some grounding in my decision to change my college major from History to Criminal Justice. Matthew Gray Gubler, is a real person. Flesh and Blood, living breathing and chilling out with famous people. I have a crush on him, I'll be honest. His character, Dr. Spencer Reid, is a bonefied nerd Bedroom fantasy for me. No reason to be shy ladies, I think that man in all his sweater-vest and skinny tie glory, is the fucking bee's knees. The things I would do to that man, would make yours and his toes curl. I am completely and irrevocably in love with this Man. Here are a few reasons why.


- HE IS BLOODY HOT! Short Hair, Curly Hair, Long Hair, Straight Hair, Don't Care He's Fucking beautiful!

- His lack of completely acceptable social interactions and behaviors makes him completely endearing to me. I'm perfectly ok, with his stuttering in public, during speaking. We can hide in the library all day long as he explains to me things I've never heard of or experienced. Maybe we'll experience them together.

- He has his own demons, and needs help dealing with them. His mother's mental health, his feeling of Loss over Prentiss, The loss of Maeve, his kidnapping, I could have been there to help him deal, possibly saved him from the kidnapping. (Who am I kidding?) I think it's extremely exhilarating for a man to actually be able to develop his feelings in words and expressing them. Whether, they are happy or not so happy.

- I wonder if he's a virgin. You gotta think about it, he hasn't been with anyone in all 9 seasons of existence. He never got to with Maeve, and as sad as everyone especially I was to see her go, especially as gruesomely as she did. Maybe I could teach him a few things. He's smart, ridiculously intelligent, just imagine how in handy his physics knowledge might be. He might even discover that my body is a wonderland.

- He's good at his job. Even though he is literally a genius, there are even episodes when he feels like the rest of us, "like he's wasted his potential". What a silly goose. Besides, there's nothing at all wrong about our 8 year gap. I think he'd be cool with that.

 I could literally go on for days, but I know for a fact that most people just kinda skim my blog because my posts tend to be on the wordier side ( Another reason, Reid and I are perfect for each other) so I'll cut this short, and just keep the rest for my dark most inner thoughts.

Until Next Week Sugars,
~Stay Nerdy!~

Fangirling: Black Canary

 If you ask me any questions about myself, they tend to follow a trend. They will eventually fall upon the track of what I affectionately call, my nerd-isms. The first is always the question who is your favorite superhero? I am a huge comic book fan. When I was working two jobs, and disposable income was rolling in, every Wednesday, I was at my local comic book shop picking up my favorites. Ever since I was little,
Black Canary has always been my favorite Superhero.
  As a young girl, my parents were ahead of the game, making sure I was exposed to every possible strong female role model they could get their hands on. From my mother's side, I was given female detectives, Strong Female nurses, Women from history. My Father's side, Cartoon characters, strong comic book characters, everything fictional I could get my hands on. They became solace, a pillar I could hide behind when things got rough. It instilled in me the attributes that a strong independent woman of color should have. My role models didn't have to look, act, or talk like me to be important to me. They just had to provide me with something that I didn't quite have then, glimpses of attitudes, wit, sarcasm, and special abilities that I wanted to have, I wanted to live up to.
  Black Canary, at least for me, embodies everything that a woman should be. Strong, quick-witted, beautiful, smart, and a match for her lover, Green Arrow. One of the things I like about Black Canary is her relationships. She would protect a loved one just as fiercely as she would protect an unknown passer-by caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her relationship with Oliver Queen is pure, time tested and worthy of other's jealousy. It's not anything like Bruce Wayne's with Selina Kyle, or Talia, full of sadness, uncertainty and hatred.
   I even love all of her incarnations. Her own series, Justice League of America, Justice League Unlimited, Combat trainer to Young Justice,and she has her own arc teaming up with Zatanna, how can she possibly go wrong?  She's just so (to me) utter flawless! I might be a touch on the biased side. I can't wait until I move into my new place, and there's space for sewing! She's the next project on my Cosplay To Do List.
 
 Until Next Week!

Lately

 Hello Lovelies,
  Lately, I've been on a binge. A binge to save/make more money. I've been picking up more hours at work, staying later, trying to save more money for this huge trip that Alex and I will be taking in a matter of 5 weeks and 3 days. This Road tripping endeavor is going to be a huge undertaking, and I'm beyond super excited to begin creating an inventory and start packing, but I just can't shake the feeling that something's going to happen just like the Chicago trip we tried to take around Valentine's Day. (I honestly don't remember what stopped us, I just remember not being in Chicago.)
  To save money, I've been cutting down on what I've been up too lately. So very little clothes shopping unless they are on (Crazy hot super cheap sale), not going out as much, bought groceries (Haven't been eating out lately), been spending my off days either at home watching movies and playing video games ( Thief is currently in the ps3) or at my parents (taking gleeful advantage of the free wi-fi). Which is great for my Alice in Wonderland wallet, but not really great for giving me writing material for the blog. It honestly hasn't been that long since I've updated, but it still feels like I'm letting people down. (Shrug, We all know I'm weird you just have to go with it at this point.)
   There is a Family Video literally down the street from the Chemical Syndicate, and I am so excited about it! I can literally rent movies for a whole week for practically nothing!! So far, I have been watching the following:

- The Great Gatsby
- Kill Your Darlings (A NEW FAVORITE!)
- Her (Made me bawl uncontrollably, and incredibly unattractively into Alex's t-shirt)
- I, Frankenstein (Action kept me from falling asleep)
- Romeo + Juliet (Chuck from Gossip Girl not Leonardo Di Caprio)
- Star Trek: Into the Darkness
- Scooby Doo: 13 Ghostly Tales Disc 1 + 2
- The Vow
- Prisoners (Not a fan of the ending)
- 21
- Prometheus
- The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Trying to get the Roomie and Alex prepared for the theater)
- Beautiful Creatures
- Gangster Squad ( I will finish it, this I decree!!!)

 I've also been adding things to my For Sale tab in the navigation bar if you hadn't noticed. I've got a HP touchpad, practically new, with charger and Case for sale $125, and a slew of Gauges that I no longer need! I've also put up some more knitted/crocheted goods up there as well, so make sure you guys check that out and support VSS! There is also Ad space available for the Month of June coming up pretty soon! Email emeraldarachnid@gmail.com for more info; like pricing and sizes!

 Welp, I think that's all the updating I have for you guys today.
Until Next time Stay nerdy,

Knitting? You still do that?

 Howdy Partners!
  I headed up to Meijers the other day with my family and wouldn't you know it? They had yarn on CLEARANCE! I couldn't believe it, The most expensive ball of yarn I picked up was only 2.54! The one thing I don't like about yarn clearance is usually its the yarns that no one wants. The texture of the yarn is really rough or weird feeling, or it's because It looks like someone already used it and then rolled it back together, it just doesn't look enticing. This was not the case with that day's clearance yarn, I don't know why they lowered the prices but I was sure happy that they did! I know its been a really long time since I've written anything having to deal with yarn or crafting or anything even close to that effect, but like I've said before, I've got a hell of a lot more free time now.
  Even though this spring/summer is starting to out to be a really hot one, yesterday it was 80 degrees over here. I plan of using my free time to get some projects done. I never finished Alex's scarf, Gi's still complaining about her watermelon pillow I "promised" her months ago. I've let a lot of projects slide, which is why I closed my shop, I couldn't bear people waiting on me while I lost interest in their projects. But If you haven't already noticed the for sale link in my navigation bar, the shop is back and looking better than ever. I'm so excited to get started creating new nerd-centric knitted fashions for ALL! As pictured I also picked up a knitting gauge, I figured not everything should be freeform. Maybe with some of my free time, I'll actually learn to read a pattern. *Shrug* Even though it had been a while since I did anything knitty, My fingers were practically itching to get started on something new, I can't wait til I get off work tonight to get started.

Are you guys excited to start a new project?

Stay Nerdy!

Free Comic Book Day and Snuggles at the Drive In.

 Hello Lovelies,
   This past Saturday was Free Comic Book Day. It was a great day. The weather could have been a little bit warmer since it was the start of may, and the shop we decided to go to, made the "super awesome" decision to host it's 50 cent comic book sale in a tent outside, I'm shocked people, the tents and comics weren't blown away, the winds were so strong I was honestly waiting to look up from my box and see the tent rolling down the road resembling tumbleweed.
   Every Comic in the tent was 50 cent a piece, and it wasn't like it was boxes upon boxes of shitty comics either, I got some serious Grade A number ones! All in All I spent about 50 bucks. I have a Fuck ton of comics to get through now, I might actually need to get a new comic box. I separated the comics into three piles. #1's, The Rest, and Free. I have a total of Four #1's written by Gail Simone in my collection (She's my Favorite) I love my sister to death, and although she has a huge soft spot in her heart for Batman, comic books aren't really her scene. I took her with me and Alex, because it was free comic day and I felt like it really should have been a family day, BUT she complained the whole time we were in the tent. It got to the point to where she left her comics with me, and just sat in the car, and I didn't even get half way through all the boxes they had available, before her and Alex both complained! Next time, I'll go by my damn self.
  After that, we went to our regular comic shop to pick up my regulars, but some of them weren't THERE! I love my regular shop, but if I don't get there on Wednesday I can pretty much kiss them goodbye... It makes me sad, that to keep up with my regular rotation, sometimes I have to stop by other shops, and it totally makes me feel unloyal. So once I caught up on a good portion of my regulars and started a new one (Rocky and Bullwinkle) Alex and I headed to the Drive in!
  We were totally excited about a double feature of  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and RoboCop. However, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn't live up to my expectations, (No Spoilers promise) A lot of things happened that I didn't like, and even though it followed the comic, I didn't like how they did it, sadly, it just didn't do it for me. Don't even get me started on Robocop, the Only reason we stayed was because I knew Alex really really wanted to see it. (He's such an adorable dork.) All in All, it was a fun experience, he enjoyed himself, pretty much cementing the decision that we'll be back very soon! We took his inflatable mattress and all of my bed linens we were mighty comfortable!



 Stay Nerdy!

I Gave in: My Blog as a MixTape

  Two weeks ago I joined a Google+ group of nerdy bloggers, and since then I've met cool bloggers, been nominated for a liebster award, AND I'm introduced to super cool Blog tie-ins Like My blog as a Mixtape or if my blog was an outfit. (Still working on that one) I love music. It's always something thats been important to me. Music's always been able to calm me down. Especially in those depression years, and even when it flares up. Music takes away the pain, it takes away the sadness, and sometimes, it will even replace them with something great, like my Alex! I literally write about everything on this blog. Becoming an adult, comic books, video games, heartbreaks and new love found, that is a lot to try and describe with music choices. I have an 80 gb classic ipod, and at the moment it holds about 2200 songs. The music choices are so eclectic, It really shouldn't be (That) hard to create a 10 song playlist right?
 


Whats on your playlist? 
Stay Nerdy!
