Nodds & Nends: TARDIS Shed, Gumball Zombie Machine, and a DIY Geeky Craft Show
Here is your bi-weekly dose of those Nerdy Odds & Ends I seem to find every time I turn the corner on the internets.
Check out a new book blog written like a comic over at Picture Me Reading. She has some great reviews and I quite enjoy reading her posts. Plus she often partakes in the book blogging memes, highlighting poems and what not. It is a great blog, you should check it out.
Problems at Good Reads continues. Now they are disciplining the reviewers by hiding bad reviews, or those reviews that have nothing to do with the book. Because apparently all the bad blood on Good Reads a site for readers, is the fault of all the readers rather than the fault of a few people bickering back and forth. Siding with the authors is evidenced by their statement of review the book not the author, a montra authors have been chanting for a while now. But why are we censoring reviewers? One author asks people not to avenger her, and then she questions why there appears to be a lot of sexism in the silencing of bad reviewers. It is a contentious issue on the internets right now, and people are not done talking about it. What the final fall out will be? I’m not sure.
On a lighter note, check out this TARDIS shed being attacked by a Dalek. I still don’t understand why the Dalek’s are so cutsified or how they raise any terror. They are just large trash cans that move really slowly with one laser pointer. I’m not a fan of them. Let’s just take a bat to all of them!
Can’t get enough of Warehouse 13? Well check out these interviews at SpoilerTV for some fun reading in between episodes. Note the sites banner of beautiful people. Drool.
After what happened in Colorado, our hearts go out to the victims and their families, people are cautious in their reviews of the Dark Knight Rises. Tragedy is now aligned with the movie, and that makes it a sensitive subject. But I did find a great review on Nashville Bookworm.
Have you ever wanted to take a gumball from the head of a taxidermied zombie on a spike? Me neither. But somebody thought it would be a good idea. That is just soooo wrong, I’m sure my mother will love it!
A Geeky DIY crafting show hosted by Bonnie Burton is not available for your viewing pleasure on Youtube. Looks like a fun time. Remember there is no glitter in steampunk. [via The Mary Sue]
