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 →

Screenshot Challenge

A while back I had the idea of doing an instagram challenge for video games. That idea then evolved into this; the Screenshot Challenge. The idea of this challenge is to join in the weekly twitter and instagram tag #screenshotsunday and making things a bit more interesting by having a weekly prompt. Starting from March 2017 I’ll be posting a set of prompts/challenges for each sunday. They will be purposefully open or vague so you can interpret them as you wish. There are only two rules; follow the prompt and post on a sunday (as much as you can, if you’re a bit late don’tRead 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 →
