Geek Blogs Unite: Disney Theme - Favourite Disney Songs

I’m taking part in Geek Blogs Unite themed topic about the Happiest Place on Earth, Disney! The plan was to spread two posts out across the theme period, and now with two days to go I’m just getting the first one done. Stomach bugs are evil 🙁 I’m still not feeling great so instead of going as in depth as I wanted to, I’m just going to share my favourite disney songs rather than try to explain why I love them so much. I decided to choose one per movie, otherwise we’d be here all night. So these aren’t even a full list. You canRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Favourite Sequels

In preparation for this post I was running through movie sequels in my head, and then it occurred to me to wonder whether sequel refers to movies only. It doesn’t…..   A sequel is a narrative, documental, or other work of literature, film, theatre, television, music, or video game that continues the story of, or expands upon, some earlier work.1   Oh balls. I considered just sticking to movies, but then the video games and the books kept poking me. They wanted to be heard too. Crud. I chose to exclude TV because to me, TV is an ongoing sequel. Until the final season everyRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - geeky coffee mugs

This weeks prompt is a special one to celebrate the birthday of one of the 5 Fandom Friday creators, Megan at The Nerdy Girlie. Happy birthday Megan! Unfortunately, I had to tweak the prompt a bit as I don’t visit coffee shops much. I wanted to keep with the coffee theme to honour Megan so I’m sharing my favourite geeky coffee mugs! Please note – this post contains affiliate links.   Troll Dress Up Mug I spotted this in a store last year and geeked out about it; Chris was not impressed. I loved trolls when I was a kid and the idea of beingRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Geeky Expressions

When compiling this list I noticed a pattern; most of my geeky expressions come from gaming. There’s a few others that didn’t make the list, like referring to a crack in a wall for Whovians, but most are those that have come up in my years playing World of Warcraft.   I think this is probably one of the most geeky expressions out there; even my dad uses this one. The best thing is that it can be used and applied to so many situations. Whether you’re seriously struggling with a problem, or having a laugh with your friends. It’s universal and everyone knows whatRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Nerdy places to visit

I have to admit; this week’s prompt had me a little stumped and it took me a while to think it through. For me, nerdy locations are a mixture of fandom related and cultural related. I’m not one for going to visit a location where my favourite movie was filmed, for example. So here is my top 5 nerdy places I’d like to visit! If you’re curious, I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to places I’d like to visit and another listing places I’ve already visited.   Aphrodite’s Temple, Aphrodisias Turkey As a Pagan my patron goddess is Aphrodite, and so for me toRead More →
