The Beginning of Next Great Adventure

Hello, fellow Nerdfighters.

This is my first official blog post. I plan to blog here actively as well as vlog on YouTube (NextGreatAdventure) once a week starting at the end of January (after recovering from finishing up my online classes that leak into my second semester). I don't have anything in particular to write other than the above.

Chow,

J

P.S. I know that "Ciao" is, well, spelled that way, but I prefer to say "Chow" instead. Like dog chow ;)

Death Be Not Proud. Expalin Dunne's arguement

In “Death Be Not Proud,”  Dunne attempts to argue that there is no reason to fear death because death will die.  

Dunne begins by humbling death.  Though some men have called death mighty and dreadful, it is not.  For all the people that death thinks it has taken, haven’t really died.  And most smarting of all, Death cannot take Dunne, the man who mocks and humbles death.  This first sentence acts as Dunne’s thesis; it states that Death doesn’t…

A thing that I wrote and a thing you might read

Just a random poem I wrote and which I hope will be found by any writer nerdfighter out there:

Fear is we will be forgotten one way or the other

It might be like when you drive trough a highway

Away from mountains, so gradual it´s an inch smaller with every mile

But at some point they always dissappear to the eye

There´s a lot to promise and a lot to reminisce 

In this world that kills promises at sight

I can´r promise you eternal…

Kinky Boots

Hi! Recently, I saw Kinky Boots, and I think that the show has immense entertainment value as well as a real message. I want to discuss the show because I think their is a lot of content that really means a lot to me.

Quick heads up: this entry will discuss cross-dressing. If you are uncomfortable with that topic, I would suggest not reading the rest of this.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, here is a brief synopsis. Charlie, our protagonist,…

Broadway Blog

Hi! I'm BroadwayNerdfighter, and that name describes my interests pretty well. I wanted to try something, so I'm going to start a little blog about theater. This means that I will be talking about shows that I have seen, shows that I might want to see, and the meanings of the shows that I discuss. We'll see how it goes!

PS If anyone is reading this and feels compelled to comment, feel free, but I would appreciate if the discourse in comments was kept polite and friendly.…

The Flea. Explain the Argument

“The Flea” by John Dunne is a humorous little poem. It’s clever, witty, and a beautiful piece of cyclical logic.  The poem is broken into three arguments that successfully argue the speakers thesis that his taking of his girlfriend’s virginity isn’t that big of a deal.  The argument develops through the three stanzas of the poem.  They are, the introduction of the Flea, the Flea’s religious implications, and the Flea’s death.  

The speaker begins…

What I Want To Be

I want to be a writer. I want to be an artist. I want to do graphic design and learn how I can become better and figure out shadows, which are so damn hard and I am always so amazed when artists get them perfect. But honestly, if they were wrong...I wouldn't even notice. Perhaps I should be more observant. I want to learn about businesses and marketing and advertising and see where that takes me. I want to create posters for companies, slogans, and pamphlets. I want to be the one to…

Project Samuel Johnson

               Within the next two or three days, I will begin to post my journal prompts for my British Literature class. For a prompt, we're asked to read a piece of poetry, essay, or book chunk and answer a question about it.  I have grown to enjoy writing these little essays and want to share my opinions about the works.  I have an extensive backlog of these prompts and will be posting them daily to begin, with the frequency declining as I post an essay after I…
