Guitar Hero….you bastard!

05 · 30 · 09

By @geekgirls

Guitar Hero, I never wanted you. I thought you were stupid, nay, ridiculous. I thought only losers, who didn’t possess the natural ability to play an actual musical instrument, would be your only friends. I thought that even if I could only muster notes through a kazoo, I would be better off without you. I thought that even if every video game for every system were to suddenly become discontinued for an uncertain amount of time and you were the last game that could be played, that I would still look the other way. Guitar Hero, I would have chosen any board game over you; Othello, Jacks, Pick up Stick. I would rather have been in a long deep sleep, induced by boredom than play with you. But, Guitar Hero, I was wrong…..terribly wrong. Read the rest of this entry ?

Twilight – my dirty little secret

05 · 22 · 09

By @geekgirls

When it comes to reading fiction, I usually venture no further than my local comic book shop. This past holiday season, I was presented with a copy of Twilight from a good friend of mine. I heard only a few reviews at that time, mainly from movie commercials, but had decided that this book was intended for simple-minded teenage girls. I had concluded that the story was trite and intellectual insulting, all before I had opened my hard cover copy.

I don’t remember exactly how I decided to start reading Twilight. Maybe I ran out of comics that week, maybe none of my TV shows were airing, I can’t be certain. But after letting it sit on my shelf for over a month, I finally picked up the novel and began to read. Read the rest of this entry ?

I received this video as an email forward and felt compelled to share with you immediately.

The emails states:

“This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa. Amazingly, 97% of the machines components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa …Yes, farm equipment! Read the rest of this entry ?

I swear I saw a Zombie

05 · 06 · 09

 

By @geekgirls

zombie_fogPreface: The events that took place on this Wednesday in November 2008 are all true, without exaggeration.

On a particular average Wednesday in November of last year, I walked outside toward my car into an unusually thick fog. It was the kind of fog that halts even the slightest breeze; the kind that makes it seem as if there’s no air at all. Days like this, when the sun can barely penetrate the dense clouds, I always get the feeling like I’ve just stepped into the middle of horror movie about to take place. I shook off the eerie sensation, got into my car and headed down to road. Read the rest of this entry ?

Celebritity Tweets

05 · 04 · 09

If you have been following @geekgirls on Twitter recently, you know that I have a big problem with celebrity profiles on Twitter, for many reasons.

First, Twitter’s main purpose is connectivity through conversation. I think it’s great that celebrities have logged on to see what Twitter is all about, but if they’re not going to engage in conversations, then what’s the point? And I highly doubt that they’re using this website to send tweets or DMs to their friend celebrities. So, if they are not going to make themselves available for conversation with anyone outside their own circle, then what’s the point? Read the rest of this entry ?
