What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
Music/Writer Nerdfighter (6/27/10 - I just now realized that I didn't mention being a radio journalism nerd despite the fact that it IS MY MAJOR. Fail whale is fail.)
About Me:
I love music. A LOT. I play bass, bass clarinet, organ, and uke. Don't mess with uke players. I also love journalistic writing, specifically in the radio format. I live for NPR! I'm working on trying to start a weekly podcast along the lines of "This American Life" this summer.

That's about all I can think of at the moment. I love talking to everyone and anyone, so don't be shy!

Application For Ningmaster-ship

My name is Josh Brems, I am 19 years of age, and I am applying for Forum Ningmaster.

I haven't read many books by Steinbeck, to be honest. Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden and Cannery Row, I think. But loved them all.

I was kind of obsessed with The Grapes of Wrath at one point as well. Weirdness.
