Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
I'm a Literature/Music/Art/NPR/TAL Nerdfighter.
About Me:
I'm Adrienne. I live in a small town in Missouri, where Republicans roam the downtown streets and the news focuses on pot farming grandmothers (did anyone hear about that story? No?).
I discovered Brotherhood 2.0 in November of 2008 when I was sick one day, and ended up spending that day and the rest of the week watching the fabulous Green brothers.
I enjoy writing, though I don't have a particularly favored style. I also spend the majority of my time reading (slowly) a pretty decent amount of books. I also love to chat about books and music, so leave a comment, chances are, I'll respond!
I have a few favorite movies, though I wouldn't consider myself much of a film person. My favorites consist of Across the Universe, Juno, Garden State, Little Miss Sunshine, and Edward Scissorhands. I also have a great deal of guilty pleasure videos, so if you mention a chick flick...
I'm a fairly quiet person, but if you give me caffeine, make me exceedingly happy/mad, or scare the crap out of me, I'm occasionally loud.
I'm easily confused, but find myself addicted to LOST. I also like the Office and 30 Rock.
I also listen to a exceedingly large amount of music, mostly folk, indie, alternative, and rock. Occasionally, though, I'll take a liking to a pop song. Not a fan of rap, sorry. In fact, why don't you take a peek down there and check my current favorite bands, eh?

I like Death Cab for Cutie, Radiohead, Kings Of Leon, The Shins, The Killers, Muse, Gomez, Sufjan Stevens, Spoon, Mute Math, the Morning Benders, Vampire Weekend, Keane, The Postal Service, White Stripes, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams, Talking Heads, Fleet Foxes, Iron and Wine, MIKA, Feist, Oasis, the Pretenders, Beck, Iron and Wine, the Beatles, Sia, of Montreal, Animal Collective, Florence and the Machine, M. Ward, the Ting Tings, the Kooks, the Kinks, TMBG, Bishop Allen, White Rabbits, Camera Obscura, U2, Loney,Dear, Oh No Oh My, the Mountain Goats. (And A TON more.)

a Gryffindor!
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
- Ned Vizzini (This guy's got talent.)
- Sarah Vowell (First heard her on This American Life, bought Assassination Vacation- loved it. Highly recommend, dahling. Highly.)
- David Sedaris ( Another TAL contributor, who doesn't like him?)
- John Green (I'm assuming a great deal of nerdfighters like him, too.)
- David Levithan (!!! Words can't describe my excessive love for him.)
- Deb Coletti (being a lyricist, her writing includes some awesome lines.)
- The Twilight Saga (hey- don't judge. <3 the Imprint podcast.)
- Susane Colasanti (Mostly easy reads, very enjoyable.)
- Maureen Johnson (I read 13 Little Blue Envelopes, then when John mentioned her, I read the rest of her novels. I have yet to read the Bermudez Triangle, though.)
- Peter Abrahams (children's books, but very fun to read, nonetheless.)
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Favoite? My cat.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Dr. Horrible.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works. It's okay. I understand.

I also particularly LOVE the poem Loryn wrote for me:
Look at all the posers
Lining down the streets
They think we are imposers
When we really see
Who they think they are
Just conformists of the week
When they give up the coffee bar
Their efforts are really weak
While we obsess a lot
'Least our bones carry meat
They let their brains rot
But we're always flippin' sweet

A Radio Special on Nerds- You Must Check This Out.

On Saturday, Wisconsin Public Radio aired a special on "Revenge of the Nerds" on the hour long program, To the Best Of Our Knowledge. Basically, they interviewed a few nerdy authors and fairly geeky characters about how nerdom is slowly becoming cool. People are gradually coming to accept the dorks, the math wizes, and computer geeks. It's kind of becoming uncool to be "cool".

They also feature some geek rap, or "Nerdcore" and an interview with bestselling author Holly Black, who… Continue

A Star Trek Review from a Semi-Trekkie

Okay, I'll admit that I am not a full blown "trekkie" or "trekker" in the Star Trek franchise.

Sadly, I have not spent my hours beaming up, I haven't crushed on Kirk, I haven't challenged Spock. I've watched some episodes of the Next Generation with my dad, but I haven't watched the show since the beginning or memorized any lines.

I'm really not that big of a fan. I couldn't get into it. I've wanted to be the uber-nerdy trekkie, like all the other cool sci-fi nerds, but I find… Continue

A Different Sort Of Collab...

So, I was just thinking...

I'm rather uncomfortable putting my face and information out on youtube, but I thought it would be cool to do different videos everyday, revolving around a theme, that don't show anyone's face (unless used creatively). It could be like a slideshow of photos, or a cartoon of your day or something, maybe a review of a movie, or a song. I don't know. That's for anyone who decides to participate to choose. It would also be like a collab channel, with a… Continue
