You probably caught this already as it stormed across the internet, but a woman painted a very cool Star Wars mural in her daughter’s room and it is the best thing ever. Plus, if you go into her exorcisingemily deviantart site you can see more fabulous murals she’s painted, you might even catch a glimpse of the Doctor. I follow her on twitter now and she is funny and amazing. [via The Mary Sue]
The X-Files has hit the small screen again this week and my husband and I are trying to get through the last few from the 90s so we can catch up with the rest of the world. In the mean time we are indulging in videos like the one below which lists the top ten episodes of the series. I have to say, they actually picked some good ones to reminisce about. [via WatchMojo]
The below video is short, but stunning. A day in the life of the earth in seconds. I love it! [via io9 and Glittering Blue]
I love Jimmy Fallon, I think he’s great! I know not everyone does, but for me Jimmy Fallon is someone who can make me laugh and feel better about life because of the joy of life that he brings to this world, and that is awesome. Here he is imitating Jim Morrison and singing Reading Rainbow. It’s nothing short of amazing.
I read this really cool article on WordPress Discover about Photographing Miniature Worlds and Jennifer Nichole Wells. A cool article and she makes some amazing scenes. I just love them! I’m totally into miniatures now after making so many cool things for my nieces. I may have to start my own haunted doll house or something.
One of the best Christmas Specials I came across recently was by the webseries “i can’t even.” If you recall, they were part of my webseries review fest last year. Their Christmas Special is titled The Doctor’s New Companion, and it is awesome. I had to pause the episode because I was laughing so hard I couldn’t hear what they were saying.
Saw this on Facebook and thought it was full of massive skill, both in the artistic quality and the ability to add reasonable outfits to a female character in a drawing rather than no-reason-for-the-lack-of-clothing that often happens in such drawings.
Also found on Facebook was this great video about giving compliments that do not have to do with a person’s appearance. I especially try to do this with my nieces. Little girls get told all the time how pretty they are, which is fine, but I think complimenting growing children on their accomplishments and who they are as people is extremely important as well. This is a good list to start with!
The holidays are upon us and I have recieved a lot of wonderful geeky gifts I just have to tell everyone about! I got a TARDIS hoodie that I have wanted for ages! I got a Doctor Who mug which I’ve used the every day to watch the TARDIS disappear for coffee time. But, perhaps the most unique gift is the Doctor Who t-shirt I posted about earlier on this blog that my best friend sent me. It is soooo awesome and really does glow in the dark!
It’s like my people know me. 😉
I wore this Where the Wild Things Are T-shirt to work today. It was a present from my mother who has always been a huge supporter of my geeky side. I love that I can wear this to work, yes that’s my hand made TARDIS cork board behind me, and I even have a squishy TARDIS toy that lights up sitting on my desk. No one even blinks that I have these things. Either this is a testament to the power of me being able to get away with anything because I work hard, or people are so used to my weirdness it doesn’t even register anymore.
I just put together a couple of things that were floating around in the back of my head. I had a vague understanding of who Orson Scott Card was and I had not read him and I forgot why. The why is because I had read a long time ago articles about his homophobia and rantings on the subject (which are obviously based on the way he was raised and some deep seated fear of himself, as most hateful outlooks about other people usually are). It is a sad thing because I do like his Mither Mages series, but will not be posting any more reviews of his books.
When do we separate the art from the artist, and when do we just not give an artist with a hateful view another platform for their voice?
I’ve decided it is definitely time for another Doctor Who Day and supporting geekiness that totes deserves the support.
Think Geek has some great Doctor Who stuff on sale like this K-9 ornament that is just in time for the holidays and super cute if I may add.
And these TARDIS string lights which I am thinking about getting for my office. I already have a TARDIS cork board and plushie (which I still need to bring in) and these lights would round out my office nicely.

Do you follow Jonathan Carroll, author, on Facebook? You should. He posts some really cool things. Like the picture below.
Reasons Why My Wife is Crying post by Aaron Gillies is awesomely funny . His wife sounds adorbs. Also, please note he got her permission before posting, so she doesn’t mind being viewed as someone who cares about all the feels. Spousal permission before posting is important, I’m still trying to convince my husband to let me post the video where I try to tickle him with my feet and get stabbed by a fork for the effort. His stop-tickling-me-laugh is just too ridiculously cute to not get on video. Since I’m the one who looks like a brat, I don’t know why he’s having issues. (Don’t worry, I’ll keep working on him.)

Don’t Forget Doctor Who themed tee glows in the dark and is too awesome for words! This website has some other awesome nerdy tees that are sure to make your geeky heart pitter and patter. No I didn’t get compensation for this, but I should have. Please, give me the thing! [via TeeTurtle]
In August I received an email from Wendy, publicist for the “i can’t even” webseries about “[o]ne apartment, two friends, and an exponential number of fandoms to argue about.”
Um, yes, please.
From the first this series made me laugh. Louise Cox and Tiana Hogben, who star in the series, have great comedic timing. Every singe episode had me chuckling to myself until their were tears in my eyes.
“I’ve seen you talking to your Benedict poster.”
Their friendship is awesome and that they can live together and still be geeky friends is such a great model. They help each other out, when they can get through the fog of obsession, and they share an interest in the geekdom while building each other up and supporting that interest.
The subject matter, background production, and sets ring true and add to every scene. I love the set up of all the different fandom posters and paraphernalia in the girl’s apartment. Even the girls’ wardrobe is geeky. The homages to all the different fandoms are inclusive and wonderful. The lighting and sound production are really good and I thought the sound effects added to the production value of the series.
With 6 episodes on YouTube at only about 5 minutes an episode you can watch the entire series and it will go by as quickly as reading your favorite book on a rainy Saturday afternoon and leave you wanting more. Like, I really really want the second series, now.
Honestly, they had me at the Australian accents. This series is just… I can’t even.
Ok. I had to do that. 😉
Geek lovers, dorks, and nerdy book worms, or people who love a good roommate comedy should check out this webseries! You can find out more about it by checking out their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts or read an article about the writer and co-writer Alyce Adams here. Watch the episode below, you wont be sorry.
I recently acquired a Doctor Who themed phone case of the TARDIS in the Starry Night scene of Van Gogh’s, I got it to match my necklace and inspired by these two items I crafted an outfit last week. I walked into work and showed off my necklace and phone case to my co-worker who is also a huge Doctor Who fan. “You look like a Doctor Who companion!” She exclaimed. Oooh, to go on an adventure with the Doctor!
Pretending I’m figuring out clues is always fun.

My order actually also included a second hard plastic phone cover as well.
