Camp

Well, summer is almost over. I begin sophomore year of high school in just a couple of days. But I wanted to take this moment to tell the story of my summer.

For the past five years I've been going to a music camp. I play oboe and I sing. This year, I stayed for two months. This camp has been a second home to me. I love the people, the music I get to play and the atmosphere of it all. I've never had as many opportunities to show my talent anywhere else.

The camp is in two sessions.… Continue

Introducing me:

I suppose it's been awhile since I've actually written a BLOG about myself, usually I'm trying to come up with an interesting topic for my blog, (journalnation.blogspot.com). I guess this will be interesting.

I live in the midwest of the U.S. of A.-the Dairy state to be exact. I've traveled to Honduras, Oregon and Denver (those are the ones I've gone to of my own accord, 'cept I went with my dad to Honduras). I grew up in church, and I'm still attending. Writing is one of my passions,…

Band troubles

I am in a band and I am really stuck on wether to continue or not. I enjoy it, we sound great (if I do say so myself) and we do get bookings so I am not losing any money but I need to concentrate on my studies as I want to eventually study the psychology of criminals and forensic science at university. Cutting down on the hours I am with the band is not an option as it is not fair on the others. I do not want to quit but I also do not want to have something that prevents me from doing my best… Continue

Sooo my house is being foreclosed on… halp? .-. I write nerdy mooosik!

Dear Nerdfighters,

Since you are all so awesome and world suck has become quite prevalent in my life, I was wondering if you could help me out?  

Me and my mom live in a quaint little house in the mountains of Colorado and I am in college studying Japanese and Geology at CU-Boulder.  My mom is disabled and no longer has a job… there is only so much one 19 year old college student can do to help keep my house but it means the world to me...…

Good old songs: Snow Patrol - You Could Be Happy

I was lucky to watch Snow Patrol playing live as the opening act for U2 360º Tour. They played only for half an hour but it was a very good concert (I already knew the band so for me it was a perfect match).

Here's one of their best works, a bittersweet though hopeful song.

Enjoy and DFTBA.

Good old songs: The Alan Parson Project - Don't Let It Show

One of the main themes of the progressive band The Alan Parsons Project was the exploration of love. In their second album, I, Robot (after the famous Isaac Asimov anthology of short stories) included this beautiful piece of broken hearts and true love.

Enjoy and DFTBA

Great old songs: Chicago - If You Leave Me Now

DJ Morgan would try to present you a nice selection of good old songs that perhaps some of the youngest Nerdfighters haven't heard. Hope you enjoy it. Today's track is the awesome and heartbreaking Chicago's "If You Leave Me Know". The song was written and sung by Peter Cetera, the band's bassist.

Hope you like it.

DFTBA!

Texas Thunderstorm

Texas thunderstorms are probably the only reason I would be sad if I was ever required to leave Texas. I moved here when I was only three and I consider myself to be a Texan. To all those people that say that since I wasn't born in Texas I can't be considered a true Texan, I say "that's your opinion." I digress. 

A Texas thunderstorm is probably the most beautiful music nature makes. If you aren't a Texan and/or never heard a Texas thunderstorm, you're missing out. I tried to find a…

How I Helped Decrease World Suck... By Listening to Music

Good evening, nerdfighters!

Some of you may or may not have heard of the tragedy that ensued last month here in Arizona. Of course, tragedies happen all the time everywhere, but this specific one took place on Yarnell Hill near Prescott, AZ. Some of you may recall that a wildland fire raged there and threatened the homes of hundreds. This is why they brought in the 'hotshot' crew from Station 7, a crew of 20 men. While battling the blaze, 19 of those men perished. In response,…

Hello!

Hello everyone! My name is Nathanael. I'm new here to Nerd Fighters. I discovered the community via CrashCourse History, was intrigued by the concept of Hank and John's record label, and decided to give it all a try.

I'm fresh out of graduate school (I studied film scoring) and so far it has proven to be stressful, but I'm optimistic and patient. I know it won't all happen overnight (nor do I really want it to), and so I've been mostly looking for a day job which, in truth, is the…

Music that moved me.

“Where words fail, music speaks.” 

― Hans Christian Andersen

Music is the one thing that keeps me going. You can find a beautiful melody in something so strange, that it provokes you to tears. Even the greatest musicians/artists/songwriters experience this moment of greatness. The mass of great compositions and songs grows every second. You can go from something as simple as…

Make My Summer Bucket List

So after this incredibly exhausting semester, I wish to have the best summer anyone has had ever in the existence of ever (which I assume to be a long time). I would like to come up with some things to do, some may be crazy, some lazy, and some just down right impossible. A bucket-list perhaps? Anyway, I live in the San Francisco/Berkeley area, and if this gets enough response I will definitely document it in more ways than one and would give credit where it is deserved. I have a list of…
