For Nerds Written by a Nerd

As an adult I went to found nerds at work, school, and church. They were everywhere! When I found my wife (Not a neek, but a neek supporter), she had two boys who were major neeks on lots of levels. How else could I be convinced to open up my Star Wars collection, so we could play for hours?

A Nerd’s Brand of Hero

By G.P. Avants  I think inside all of us is a hero that wants a chance to do something great. You know, we all want to change the world in some way. Can you relate? What can a neek do that compares with those who do great almost superhuman things?  As our character, Levy finds…

Nerdatonium Classification

es, I go to a school that has all levels of neeks. Not everyone thinks alike or do things the same. That can cause us to butt heads and cause tension between us. So, I shared with some of my closest friends, so we would understand each other and maybe be a little more patient and understanding with each other.

Real Nerdatonium

By G.P. Avants  You’ve heard of Oxygen, Nitrogen, Argon, Uranium, and even Einsteinium? These of course are part of the Periodic Table of Elements. They are the building blocks of everything that (as far as we have discovered) that makes up everything on Earth.) If you love science or in a career related to the sciences, you…

Star Trek Picard: Is their Life after Broken? 

    Star Trek has been an almost continuous fandom, either on TV, on the big screen, even on the internet since 1966. Each incarnation of Star Trek has had a captain and crew that upholds, for the most part the ideals and principles of The United Federation of Planets. A dedicated team who’s goal…

The Mandolorian:  The Child in Us All

  From the first look at those waggling ears and huge innocent eyes, I was hooked. He’s called the child, but I have a feeling the name Baby Yoda is the one that will stick. Who would have imagined this little bundle of innocence would have resonated with so many people, even outside of fandom? …

Stranger Things 3: Dude, You Won a Fight!

With July 4th just around the corner love, adventure, and something dark and sinister is coming along with an 80’s soundtrack. A year before our…

Mother, May I?

By G.P. Avants I don’t know who recommended I Am Mother on Netflix, but I took the bait. This show, set in a supposed post-human civilization world, centers around a caretaker robot and her surrogate little girl. The child was selected from a collection of human embryos, that the robot, named Mother raised. In a…

Spiderman Far-From Home:  Practically Perfect Peter Parker
