Welcome!

Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

How Neil deGrasse Tyson Made Me Cry

For anyone not watching the new Cosmos on Fox, you are missing out, and I say that sentence with none of my usual ironic bite or snarky superiority. I literally mean to say, you are missing out. I have nothing but praise for this series. I can't think of one thing wrong with it. I should probably just end my review here and leave it at that, but when have I ever been brief in my writing? (That was a rhetorical question, by the way.) Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey just premiered its fourth episode last Sunday on Fox, and it has yet to fail to disappoint. It is spectacular in all aspects: the visual effects, the mind-blowing facts, the animated historical portions, the…

Books I recommend!

Sorry that I haven't been around very much lately! My father has been ill and in hospital for the past two months. He's on the road to recovery now and that means that I have more space in my brain to concentrate on bringing you all more book recommendations and blog posts!

Here are some of the books I've been reading and enjoying lately. Feel free to share in comments your own recommendations and/or write your own lists and reviews in the blog section and send them over to me. I love hearing about them. If there are particular things you'd like to see featured in these (hopefully regular) blog posts about books, let me know!

Sexual Abuse, Consent, and Culture

 

If you haven't heard, there have been some really troubling stories about manipulative and even possibly abusive relationships between online creators and their fans.



While that situation certainly spurred me to make this video, I also think a video like this is long overdo. We're excited to be facing these problems head-on, because the only way out is through.



Thanks to our task force for helping me edit this video and make sure I wasn't too clumsy with the work, especially to Sahitya.



Here are some resources put together by the task force:



If someone is pressuring you:…

Short Story: Survivor of the Sarcophagus Comet

  Looking for some opinions. I'm getting tunnel vision, and I'm losing my grip on what is considered a good story. Read as much as you like and can, it is quite long, around 6500 words. The Survivor of the Sarcophagus CometBy Cameron CraneDraft 2April, 2014          In 2498, Wyatt lived in a large oceanfront cottage that he built himself over the span of ten years. It was built with care and patience, the only two traits that Wyatt could surely claim. It was verging autumn and the trees on the…See More

Third creative writing assignment: People Watching

Xen StoriesFor the third creative writing assignment we had to go out into the world and watch people conversate from afar...stalking, pretty much. At which we have to come up with a possible dialogue from their mood and body language. I have to say, and with great relief that I am not the best stalker. I stalked and stalked, but time after time I kept getting spotted. It’s more exhausting than I realized. So to the two girls standing in front of the library on that windy afternoon, thank you…See More
