Geek is the New Black

Geek is the New Black

I woke up this morning with “I’m the One That’s Cool”, one of Felicia Day’s music videos to promote The Guild, stuck in my head. So I started my day thinking about the idea of geekdom and popularity, about how “they say that geek’s becoming chic”.

Gender-Bend Wednesday: Hairspray

It’s Gender-Bend Wednesday, and shocking no one, I’m going to talk about my favorite musical: Hairspray. Again.

It just means examining different stereotypes and double standards.

I am going to find a different terrible piece of gender symbol stock-art every single week.

I am ALL ABOUT puns.

Hey, so, people coming to the Carol Corps meet-up at FanExpo.

Would anyone be interested in beaded necklace lanyards for con-badge holders in Carol Corps colour schemes?

I’m not looking to make a profit off them (yet, it is an idea I may offer in my ever-so-delayed new webstore) so much as just cover the cost of materials to make them sort of a fun meet-up souvineer, so they’d be like, five bucks a piece.

I can’t guarantee enough for everyone, so I won’t take any money in advance, but if folks are interested, I’ll bring as many as I can make?

Reblogging over here, because I probably should have posted it here in the first place. 

Wow, yeah, that would be really cool!

"I said many ignorant people nowadays thought ‘Frankenstein’ was the name of the monster, and not of the scientist who created him.
[Mary Shelley] said, ‘That’s not so ignorant after all. There are two monsters in my story, not one. And one of them, the scientist, is indeed named Frankenstein."
