Alright Sports Fans, Anexandros here, doing my Brony blog about my interactions with the ponyboys.

Brony Challenge 3: Season Wrap up, Season wrap up!

I might make it through this challenge today. I got out of bed, and said the words, “I get to finish the first season today.” My Significant other responded, “How good do you think the second season will be?” Before I could stop myself, I uttered the phrase, “So far it is not bad.” Did [...] The post Brony Challenge 3: Season Wrap up, Season wrap up! appeared first on Land of the Nerds. <a href="http://landofnerds.com/2013/08/06/brony-challenge-3-season-wrap-up-season-wrap-up/?utm_source

What makes a strong female character? First in a series

One thing I often find when I’m reading about Sci/Fi or Fantasy novels, television shows, movies, et cetera, is the discussion of how Sci Fi and Fantasy produces Strong Female Characters!” However, what methods do we use to determine the strength of a female character? Who makes the list, and who doesn’t? Who shouldn’t make [...] The post What makes a strong female character?

Undead Cinema: The Goonies!

As I start a new dungeon crawl this weekend, I am reminded of my first exposure to dungeon crawling with a party. The movie Goonies is by Richard Donner, the same guy who brought us the Lethal Weapon Series (1987-98), Scrooged (1988), Ladyhawke (1985),The Toy (1982), Omen (1976), and Maverick (1994). I accept that the [...] The post Undead Cinema: The Goonies! appeared first on Land of the Nerds. <a href="http://landofnerds.com/2013/07/23/undead-cinema-the-goonies/?utm_source=rss&utm

Live Action Role Playing (LARP) is not for everyone. Certainly not for Me

On a previous post, I talked about my tabletop role-playing game experience and some of my favorite characters from the various table-top RPGs I have played. Since another, long established part of my gaming experience also consists of live action role playing games (LARP), I should probably discuss live action role playing. Just like in table-top [...] The post Live Action Role Playing (LARP) is not for everyone. Certainly not for Me appeared first on Land of the Nerds. <a href="ht

Tabletop Role Playing Games

When I was young, I heard about tabletop role playing games (RPGs) in hushed tones. Dungeons and Dragons was ‘evil.’ The people who played it were actually all Satanic devil-worshipers who were using real magic spells to drive their friends to suicide. People pretend to be thieves and wizards, evil things, and become so in [...] The post Tabletop Role Playing Games appeared first on Land of the Nerds. Source

Undead Cinema: Alien, a Space Horror

I love films that make us cry, I love films that make us laugh, but horror films for some reason rarely resonate with me. I just am not a fan of red karo and absolutely gratuitous bloodbaths built solely to give the actors a messy wardrobe. So when horror films [...] The post Undead Cinema: Alien, a Space Horror appeared first on Land of the Nerds. Source

True Blood: What I love about Sookie’s World

Since True Blood Season 6 is partway underway, I thought I’d take this blog to discuss the show, the Southern Mysteries (also called the “Sookie Stackhouse novels” and what I like about the phenomenon in general. I  first  learned about True Blood when I worked at Blockbuster Video. HBO did something really cool  prior to the launch of [...] The post True Blood: What I love about Sookie’s World appeared first on Land of the Nerds. Source
