Someone requested a post of all of the current Strong Female Characters, so here you go.
this is cool.
Since people are already throwing today’s Dork Tower up on Tumblr, I figure I might as well, too!
Share and enjoy!
John Kovalic is the best.
This is a school project by a 2nd-grade daughter of a friend. “Do Squirrels Like Star Trek Uniforms?” It won a medal at the science fair. It is perfection.
“How to get a bikini body”: put a bikini on your body. #truth
The importance of consent: a narrative.
Huge fan of this.
define yourself by what you love… not by what you hate…
I know and love MANY cynical people but eventually I just want to shake them and say: it is TOTALLY OK to not be into/know about popular things (or popular nerdy things) but the stuff that makes you interesting is the stuff you like, and being positive and enthusiastic will make you HAPPPPIIIERRRR
I just rented Pitch Perfect, who wants to watch it with me?
Self-promotion for our BIGGEST TOUR YET! Thanks to Chris Wright for this amazing photo, and to all of the RAD houses, venues and game stores who will be hosting our little shows. We’re so excited!
This Fantasy World (kid's version)
Happy Tabletop Day!!!
For this new and most glorious holiday, we’re giving away our Dungeons & Dragons love song, This Fantasy World, for freeeee!!!
D&D was my introduction to the wild world of tabletop games… and once we found the board games, we could not be stopped. We’ve already played Gloom today, and though it is a busy day, in the background of my head I’ll be playing Lords of Waterdeep and Dixit and Revolution.
this girl’s legit.
Uncle Geek's House
It’s Pi day, which seems like a good reason to give you a free download of our children’s song “Uncle Geek’s House.”
This is a song I wrote for our Uncle’s big-number-birthday a few years ago. Our Uncle Ed is an awesome, awesome person. He taught Computer Science at a University in Missouri from the days when computer sciences involved punch cards and wizards and cauldrons.
When I was a kid and would visit Uncle Geek (I would stay with him a lot when I would visit my ailing grandparents) he would set up a laptop for me to check my Internets (AOL and neopets 4 life), which often involved stringing ethernet cables around his house in complicated patterns. He made us a mix CD of Weird Al and other parody songs that stayed on my CD to iPod to laptop rotation for years. When I got my first computer, a PC in a Mac household, and proceeded to ruin it with viruses because none of my family had ever needed to protect from things like that, he rescued all my photos. He and I would go to Target and buy bargain DVDs of old comedies. He’d take me to his “nerd gatherings” at the local pizza buffet with all his friends who were professors, IT guys, and wireless-thing-installers. As a very awkward, very lonely kid, seeing happy nerds was a really, really big thing for me.
When we started the band, Uncle Geek (not his real name) was a huge supporter. He ordered one of our t-shirts custom so he could get a pocket T - he, like my grandfather did, wears his pens and notebooks in a pocket protecter in his t-shirt, unapologetically rebelling from the norm.
In our touring life, we’ve met a lot of awesome people who have adopted the “Uncle Geek” role. Not everybody can have nerdy parents (I didn’t)… but having that geeky Uncle to show you the way… the way of Linux and Monty Python and Weird Al… that’s a wonderful part of growing up.
The amazing Virtualbri is sending me tons of sticker designs. What do you guys think? Which one(s) should we make?
