I'm not a particularly cool nerd, I'm just a regular one.

"My desktop is on a rotation of about 20 or so, but this one is my favourite.  I also have dual monitors but only maybe 3 of my desktops span them both. Yes, it stays that clean.  I use my desktop to showcase art I find awesome and I…"

"The gears remind me of these clocks I used to work around. The ticking sound was so relaxing. And for all you Linux Nerdfighters out there, yes I'm using Gnome Shell, don't hate me because I'm beautiful. :P"

Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
Of the musical, scientific, artistic variety...but, who here isn't? That's what's cool...
About Me:
I'm definitely a computer nerd.

At one time, I actually wanted to be an animator on The Simpson's.

I have a curious fascination with the late 60's/ early 70's space program.

I really like photography, wishing I was better at writing, audio production (recording, mixing, mastering), filmmaking, playing music, drawing...and the list goes on.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley
Ghosts in the Wilderness by Tony and Eva Worobiec
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
The Ruins by Scott Smith
And anything by Michael Crichton (I'm only 4 books short of completing my collection of M.C. first editions)
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Probably my glasses, because, well, I really like seeing. (ok. that's lame...but what did you put?)
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?

School buses don't make good hood ornaments.

"Ouch." That was the first word that ran through my mind today as a massive school bus (think Greyhound-type bus) was backing into the right front corner of my parked little Toyota...with me still in it. The second and third words that went through my mind I can't mention here for risk of offending our younger audience. So here's how part of my day turned into suck.

As is my daily lunchtime custom, I had parked my car (today, in the fairly-empty parking lot of our local air &… Continue

I've added a few photos (check my Photos section) that I've taken over the last couple of years. These are some of my favorite ones. I'm not really sure what I'm doing, but whatever it is, it seems to work. And, I like them, so I'll keep taking them.

Lucky for me, living in Kansas means there's no shortage of abandoned old farm houses to take pictures… Continue

Sorry if I removed you as a Friend...

Here's the reason. There are a handful of you who I had added as friends, but never actually contacted to say who I was, or why I added you. I admit that was a bit forward. So, if we haven't at least commented on each others profile pages yet, or contributed to the same discussions, I thought it would be prudent to remove you and start over. So, if you've gleaned anything insightful about me from the small amount of info posted on my Profile section, and you think I'd be a swell… Continue

This is Nerd-vana.

One blog down, infinity to go. Well, I guess I can't really quantify it yet, I've just gotten started. But, this place looks to be just the thing the web needed. Ahhh...fresh air!

Hi, I saw your art on the 'show us what you can do' discussion in 'the nerds who draw things' group. It was really good, I was thinking you should check out we are always looking for more artists. DFTBA

Thanks! I'm trying to get adjusted here and see what all I can be a part of. I'm really excited to be a nerdfighter (in training?) I just finished watching all the videos and started maybe four days ago.

thank you, kind sir! it means a lot that you would look through them. and may i just say, yours are fantastic as well. i love the window photo in particular. and the two shirts. i'm definitely a fan of minimalism when it comes to photography. details are the best. and you, my friend, have got a lot of them. i'm glad i came across your page! :)
