As we continue with Magical Mount Month, I’d like to take some time to talk about the most ‘mundane’ of horses in my favorite book series, the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (and completed by Brandon Sanderson). I’m talking about none other than Bela. (Note: there are spoilers for the series in this post.) ...
Midichlorians ride humans. Anakin is mostly midichlorians. Yoda has the highest midichlorian count known … until Anakin. Yoda rides his Luke Skywalker steed. Luke must be ridden by a high amount of his Dad’s midichlorians plus Yoda’s. Luke might be carrying more midichlorians than anybody ever?
As a form of free-thought and exercise, every so often, i sit down to consider the implications of gender-swapped characters in my Strong Female Character blogs. To me, this is the most entertaining aspect of my blogs, sitting down, considering what, if any, actions would be different in “Show/book/movie X” if the character in question ...
Star Wars fans are a different breed of people then Star Trek fans. I notice this as an outsider looking in at the two genres. Growing up I was not allowed to watch mainstream TV or go to the movies. I did not see Star wars until I graduated Boot Camp in 1989, 12 ...
Once upon a time, there was a crappy little tv show on the Fox Network that kept interfering with baseball and other, more important television shows. This show, the ‘cult classic’ known as Firefly, was a stinker. Let me tell you why this show only lasted one season. 1. The Theme Song. The song, called ...
If you are into Indian mythology, you may know what I am referring to but if you are not, then this post will contain enough to ease you into reading it and hopefully liking it. Mahabharata is one of the two major texts of Sanskrit (the other is Ramayana). For the purposes of this article, ...
Ok, nerdlings. Come on in, sit on down and get ready for nerducation. Pop Quiz 1: What is the purpose of a conjunction? 2: How does a bill get passed? 3: What two elements make up the sun? What exactly is a sun? 4: Write down the 3 times tables for 1-10. From using catchy ...
I was under the tarp last night painting in the rain to get some blue on her, she is much happier in this color. Since Tuesday at start of build I have had to only buy a gallon of paint and one of the four wheels. Everything else is recycled materials.
Ever since Netflix started streaming Friends, I’ve been slowly making my way through the catalog of the show with fond nostalgia. The show was funny, quirky, and spoke to the viewers on many levels. The show managed to do quite a few things well, but there are also a few aspects of the show that ...
Let me start this review be saying that I never read the book Fifty Shades of Grey but I did enjoy the film. (Now wait hear me out.) It is not some Oscar winning drama or romance movie. I laughed, not at the ridiculous dialog or the paper thin story, but where they actual placing real ...
Dear Wheel of Time fans, My name is Anexandros. Those on the Wheel of Time board Dragonmount know me as “Mr. Moon.” I have had a love/hate relationship with Wheel of Time. My wife loves the series. She talks about the series. She is a major contributor to Dragonmount. She does projects and games and ...
Hello There! First of all, I’m Lord Kronos and I’m new to Land of Nerds. In short, I’m mostly going to be writing about music and sci-fi/fantasy type of stuff. At times, I’ll probably discuss a little bit of both. For my first post however, I’d like to start off with a story. One of ...
“The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and ...
This amazing archer is a site to see. I myself have fired many a bow and arrow and never considered that I might be doing it wrong. Lars shows the proper historical and long forgotten methods of firing a bow. This guy even out fires the legendary skill shots of Robin Hood.

I have gone to cons for the last 13 years, or maybe it is twelve…it is a lot either way. Anyway, I have colored my hair multiple colors and I have worn the weirdest clothing from tights and cloaks to hockey jerseys and even wore fringe this millennium. But I have never done cosplay. I […]

If you’ve been following the Dr. Who blogs on this site, you’ll know I’m a fairly recent convert to the world of Dr. Who. And for the most part, 99 percent of the time, I love the show. I really do. But, sometimes, just sometimes, mind you, there are aspects of the long-running scifi show […]

In this edition of Exploring Doctor Who, I am going to talk about the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant. As a wildly popular Dr. Who incarnation, there is a lot out there already about the Tennant Years, and I really do not want to just post another rewrite of everything about David Tennant as […]

As many of you guys and ladies know, I have never really taken the time to sit down and I am now exploring Dr Who. Who. I’ve seen an episode here and there, I’ve even met Sylvester McCoy (the Seventh Doctor), and a run-in with Doctor Four was crucial in the back story of one [...]

I have a few friends (who I am leaving anonymous) who hate anime dubbing. I, personally, have never had a strong opinion either way. I am a “Casual” anime watcher. I will watch an anime if I find one that has an interesting plot, a story that sucks me in, or has really good art. [...]
