What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
I like: Anthropology, tabletop role-playing games, science, science fiction, fantasy, reading, liturgi-nerd, language, anti-worldsuck...lots of typical and perhaps a-typical nerd stuff, but mostly I am ambivalent about the "nerdfighter" label
About Me:
I like to go on adventures in making things. Whether it's creating tales that turn my friends into legendary heroes, or binding books based on instructions from a hundred-year-old book, or making quilts that betray my inability to maintain geometric precision, I like to tell stories, however I can.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Books I have read many times: Dune, Frank Herbert; The Lord of the Rings trilogy, JRR Tolkien; The LIttle Prince, Antoine de St-Euxpery; The Chronicles of Narnia, CS Lewis; The Blue Sword, Robin McKinley; The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams; Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card, The "Little House" series, Laura Ingalls Wilder; The Joy of Lex, Giles Brandreth
Books I have only read once, but love: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Betty Smith; To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee; Death Comes for the Archbishop, Willa Cather; The Long Loneliness, Dorothy Day; The Scarlet Pimpernel, Baroness Orczy; The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde; Neverwhere, Neil Gaiman
Poems: Dover Beach, Matthew Arnold; September 1, 1939, W.H. Auden; As I Walked Out One Evening, T.S. Eliot; The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot; Ulysses, Alfred, Lord Tennyson; The Recipe for Marmalade, Emily Wills; Music, Anne Porter; Moving Day, Ron Koertge; An Irish Airman foresees his Death, WB Yeats
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
An adventurous hat.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
M'colleague.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
November, 2011
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
Durkheim forswore the bitterness of agency.

Don't Blog When You're Hungry: A Cautionary Tale

I was having an argument with my best friend recently. We were talking on the phone at about 5:00 pm. I wanted her to come over to my place and hang out.

“Sure,” she said, “in a little while. My Mom's just making breakfast.” My contention was that she was not eating breakfast at all, and that at best she was engaging in a very late lunch. Her arguments were simple:

1. It was to be the first meal of the day for those eating it – they were “breaking their fast,” thus fulfilling…

French the Grey Cup! Randene and Sarah Watch the Swindon Town Swoodilipoopers

When you think of a Canadian sports enthusiast, you probably imagine a hockey fan.* And they're certainly out there. A recent Huffington Post article suggested a link between rising sales of sex toys with the NHL lockout. But hockey, for all that is played and loved across this country, is not what pre-occupies the people of Saskatchewan.

 

In Saskatchewan,…

Please, please do well on your finals

I am, as of this morning, finished my first academic year as a teaching assistant at my University.  The experience was often challenging, often boring, often stressful, but I definitely learned a heck of a lot.  Some of what I learned may be relevant to nerdfighters who are nearing the ends of their semesters, handing in papers and writing finals, so I thought I'd share.  Ok, so that's not really the reason.  Sorry nerdfighters, it's not you, it's me.

How to disagree: starring a man unironically sporting an awesome vest

So I am reading this article ("The Concept of Cultural Translation" by Talal Asad in Writing Culture edited by James Clifford and George E. Marcus) and I wish I could recommend it.  I mean, it's of a great deal of use to me, an aspiring ethnographer interested in the idea of a culture as text and what that means in terms of relativism and representing the coherence of ideas that might seem absurd, but I know that isn't everybody. 

The…

Thanks for your comment on my video. I'm probably a teensy bit biased toward the TARDIS. ;) You make some good points, but I'm probably still more of the vagabond type. DFTBA!

Hello Sarah. Sorry for the slow response, but you commented on my vlog asking why I liked David Bowie so much so I feel like I need to get back to you.

To be honest, it does surprise me how much I like Bowie when looking at other types of music that I like. I tend to like pop/rock or electronic and really upbeat in most circumstances,  but there is something in the way that Bowie sings that sounds very passionate and truthful to me and if I just sit and listen, I feel alittle emotional. I'm not sure why exactly, it just does :P

Hope that answered the question ^_^

Thank you for your kindness miss Sarah.

I hope that I can make good friends in here.

Thank you very much for your comment on my blog post it made me feel comfort that somebody else had experienced what I am currently feeling right now. :)

That would be the instrument. Well I assume anyway, I wrote the description for my page a long time ago and then sort of forgot about it!
