nerdy adventures

well friends, i've started two new incredibly nerdy adventures.


nerdy adventure the first: Firefly, of course.  i'm sure at least some of you have heard of this and are probably obsessed with it yourselves. as i was debating watching it on Twitter, i had several peeps come out of the woodwork declaring their hard and fast love for the 2-season space western.

if you have not heard of Firefly, i encourage you to find a new residence and leave the rock you're currently living under behind. also, Wikipedia sums up the show as this: The show explores the lives of some people who fought on the losing side of a civil war and others who now make a living on the outskirts of the society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In addition, it is a future where the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures as well. According to Whedon's vision, "nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today."






nerdy adventure the second - i've started reading A Game of Thrones. yes, the hard-core high-fantasy series that geeks EVERYWHERE are all up in, loving it strong. the real motivation for me to start this was the mini-series coming to HBO soon (so articles are everywhere). plus, the hubs has read this and loved it...so there's someone in my life who can answer questions in a non-spoilery way.

goodreads sums up A Game of Thrones thusly: 
In A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin has created a genuine masterpiece, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill the pages of the first volume in an epic series sure to delight fantasy fans everywhere. 
In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones. 

so i'm sure you can expect some updates on how my nerdy adventures are coming along. AGoT will take me at least a couple weeks to get through, if not more. i may need to read/review other books along the way, but we shall see. 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. for some reason, i just have no interest in stuff joss whedon does. if the firefly experience goes well, will you try out buffy the vampire slayer?

  2. although i have been resistant in the past, i feel that Buffy will be an inevitable stepping stone in my nerdy watchings.
