A recent convert to listening to podcasts while getting other menial tasks done, I shared a recent find (thanks to Stephanie) with my best friend the podcast produced by NPR called Pop Culture Happy Hour.
Sara: I always feel smarter after listening to NPR. It really doesn’t matter what the subject was.
Me: I don’t know that I feel smarter, but they have interesting discussions. I think I’m supposed to feel smarter, but I refuse to follow fads even of the intellect kind.
Sara: What fad is this?
Me: Listening to NPR because it makes you feel smarter and therefore you are superior to other people. That fad.
Sara: I swear to God, sometimes you are such a hipster.
Feeling a little put out (but also giggling) I decided to see what Facebook had to say about my hipster tendencies.
Chris: Ha Ha! Hipster.
Chris: Wow. You even say “Whatever,” like a hipster.
I banged my head on my desk from laughing so hard. Now I have a bruise. Thanks a lot Chris.
Jimmy Fallon is one of the very few talk shows I will listen to, and it is often because of his nerdy/geeky side. He had on the show this really cool Visual Reality goggle thing called the Oculus Rift -VR and it looks amazing! They are just starting production of the gaming console and I think this is going to be big. One hopes. 🙂 You can preorder them for $300. You really should watch the clip on the show, it was hilarious, the presenter really got Jimmy good.
I found a cute segment on Steam Punk Thrifting on The Nerdist which goes through the steps of putting together a cheap cosplay outfit by going to a thrift store and doing it yourself.
On my cousin’s G+ account she posted this awesome video of Minecraft in real life. The effects are really good for a webseries. Sara would probably not be impressed with their stage combat acting skills, but I thought it was cute. Thanks Breanna for the tip.
