What Could You Do With A Poe Duck?

You blog about him on the Ning!



Hello, hello! Here is the latest Duck, Edgar Allan Poe!

What Would You Do With A Poe Duck?



In 2-D Design, we have been painting in black and white, which inspired the greyscale Edgar Allan Poe. It seemed appropriate. : )



I taped the making-of the Poe duck, and will post the video at some point this month (Only two weeks of class left, woo!). Any tips on video editing are greatly appreciated.



And here are the… Continue

John Reviews Twilight and New Moon



In which John discusses Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga in both its book and film form, discussing the Twilight phenomenon in a way that will surely anger both Twihards and the series' detractors, thus infuriating everyone and pleasing no one. Also discussed: vampires; Edward Cullen, his hotness; Jacob Black, his torso; romantic relationships, why adults shouldn't have them with teenagers; reading; books; and true love, a beautiful… Continue

Forum News Time!

Well before we highlight some recent discussion posts in the forum we need to have a little talk. First off I want to say how thankful all of us ningmasters are for everyone's involvement in the forums we're all happy we have so many people active in it. With that said there some issues that must be addressed. You most certainly don't have to agree with everyone and you have right to disagree with someone on the forums considering that's the purpose of the forums to create conversation but we… Continue

YA Books

Happy Friday, Nerdfighters! (sorry, I was watching FlawedArtist before). I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday or a wonderful Thursday if your not in America. But back to what's important, books. A couple of weeks ago I started requesting Young Adult book reviews from fellow Nerdfighters and a couple of you complied. Before I get into those reviews let me just mention that the next Nerdfighter reviews will be for Science Fiction books (not Fantasy, that will probably come later… Continue

I'm thankful for blogs and nerdfighting. What about you?

Hello Nerdfighters!



I was going through the blogs from this past week and have noticed you guys haven't been posting many blogs. You all must be on vacation and too busy getting ready for thanksgiving!

So I thought I would just take this post to thank you all for being so awesome. Mostly what… Continue

Results & Spike

Hello again, Nerdfighteria!



It has been an interesting past couple of days, I would say. With thirty votes, Edgar Allan Poe is the next duck to be made. If time and technology permits, I will make a video of the entire process from sculpting to painting and everything in between.



In other news, there was a convention called Super MegaFest in Framingham, MA this past weekend. It's kind of like a mini Comic-Con. There were a lot of cool people there and a ton of… Continue

In which John discusses Hank's impending punishment in the context of Thierry Henry's hand ball in the lead-up to a goal in Ireland and France's World Cup Qualifier. (I am not a die-hard Ireland supporter or anything; I just like fair play.) The "Are the new viewers gone yet" is… Continue

Late Forum Update

Hello again everyone! Sorry for the late Saturday post, there simply are not enough hours in the day… and even fewer if it’s a workday. I’m not entirely sure if anybody notices my tardiness. Anyways, I have some interesting threads for you in addition to a few reminders and other cool stuff.



So I know many of you attended a Tour De Hank event already, and have loads of pictures of the festivities! Upload them, and show off the Nerdfighter awesomeness! Alternatively, post a blog and… Continue

Twilight Is Not Alone

First things first, have you read a good Young Adult Fiction book lately? If you said yes, write a review (about a paragraph... nothing to long) and send it to; drowninginflowers@gmail.com and then I'll compile a blog post with a bunch of nerdfighter reviews. This way you get a variety of opinions and not just my extremely biased opinion.



Also, the blurbing book club is still reading, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey until the end of November. Make sure to read,… Continue

Gus is a Bug: A Nerdfighter Interpetation

Hello again! Nerdfighters are quite the team when comes to tracking down information, people, or books. Gus is a Bug was no exception, but some nerds answered to the extreme call of duty and drew illustrations or comics. These are their stories...pictures...damn it, SVU!



A book has to have a cover. Otherwise, it's illegal to sell. DUN DUN DUN. Also, do…

Blogging A Little Late

Hey Nerdfighters!



I assume you notice that I have missed a week. To make along story short things were just a little to crazy and I just wasn't able to make my post last week. Sorry about that guys! I still have, however, been checking in on the Ning.



A lot of you guys are focused on Nano and as much as I could love to feature a bunch of Nano content, it would be unfair to feature some and not all of it. Because you guys are really awesome writers and it's just all so… Continue

Voting Time- Now with the correct poll! And Pictures!

(So sorry about messing up earlier- The right poll is now in place.)



Hello again!



It has been ridiculously busy over here the last week or so between designing Star Trek money, building a typewriter out of computer bits, and creating a Bob Ross cereal box.* As a result, I don't have a picture of Dr. Frank-N-Furter as of yet. He has a coat of paint drying as I type this, and hopefully he will be finished by Wednesday at the very latest.



UPDATE: Now with… Continue
