prerelease

I said in my last article that Magic: the Gathering has become a sort of self-care tool for me. Unfortunately, as I also mentioned, I rarely get to play because I’m always busy. So imagine my reaction when I found out that, not only did I have a day off both jobs, but there was a Ravnica Allegiance prerelease event happening near me. One phone call and debit card later, I had registered and chosen my guild. I walk into the store and within a few minutes, the event is starting. Rules get explained, kits distributed, pairings posted. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly: peopleRead More →

There are so many advice columns out there on self care. I’m sure you’ve seen them. But you’ve probably noticed that most of them are directed to people who are… not you. They never seem to focus on the nerds and geeks out there who’d rather swing a sword around than move the D&D table to make room for a yoga mat. Or who don’t want to “sit and relax” because 80% of your day is already sitting in front of lines of code.

Hey, Geeks. Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. The Nightmare Before Christmas has steadily moved its way out of Halloween/Christmas “cult classic” status and into an annual Halloween/Christmas tradition for millions of people. But when you really look at the film you have to wonder why people have obsessed over this so long. Is it the highly-marketable characters and art style? It must be. Romantic Goths need something to decorate their room with, after all. But honestly, that’s not enough. Or at least it shouldn’t be. Let’s talk about why TheRead More →

gifts in the background with title of shopping for that one nerdy friend

It’s that time of year where many people find themselves shopping outside their comfort zones in order to get the perfect (or at least acceptable) gift for that one nerdy friend. Whether it’s a coworker you got assigned for Secret Santa, a grandchild who won’t stop talking about… something (you’re not sure what), or one of your best friends that’s just really into a different fandom, nerds are everywhere. And now you have to figure out exactly what they want. Don’t worry. It’s not as scary as it seems. Let’s talk about the different types of fandoms, and the DOs and DON’Ts of each.
