Check out this article I wrote about the “geek chic” spectrum of style and fashion for Lucky magazine!
(See if you can catch all of the nerdy references in the captions of the slideshow :P)
“So whether your style icon is someone like self-proclaimed geek and Harvard grad Natalie Portman, or maybe her Star Wars character Queen Padmé Amidala instead, there’s no wrong way to be a proud nerd.”
(Also, I got to use a picture of Karen Gillan/mention her style as Amy Pond, and that’s like a step away from interviewing her… kind of. :P Someday, I hope, haha.)
Just ordered a pair of Oxford heeled booties and an Amy Pond police kissogram action figure.
Those are literally the only things I’ve wanted in life for the past few months.
Hoping to have that makeup tutorial filmed/posted by next weekend. I promise you, it will happen!
The Brattle Theatre in Cambridge has screenings of stuff all the time, ranging from old cult movies, foreign films, documentaries, and TV shows (like their Hooked On Who event). I even once saw Flash Gordon (the 1980 one) there on a date, and the whole theater was sort of riffing on it and playing MST3K. It was awesome. They also have director Q&A events and stuff there sometimes too.
Last winter they had the Hooked On Who event as well, but with different episodes. So I guess just keep checking the Brattle Theatre’s schedule on their website to find out about new events, or just keep checking this blog because I’ll likely post about it the second I find out anything, haha.
No, I’m still stuck in New York. If they do them again in the winter like they did last year though, I’ll definitely be there!

For the surprisingly sizable chunk of you who follow this blog and also enjoy Nancy Drew, YouTuber arglefumph (known for his hilarious/informative video walkthroughs of Nancy Drew games) has posted a really interesting and funny interview with Gabriel Wolf, the voice actor of Dylan Carter in The Tomb of the Lost Queen!
I listened to the interview last night, and literally shrieked when Gabriel Wolf started talking about Christopher Eccleston on Doctor Who, along with his own Dalek voice impression.
The entire interview is about an hour and seven minutes, but if you just wanna listen to the Doctor Who mentions (which are about 2 minutes in total) you can check out the voice of Dylan Carter discussing Christopher Eccleston on Doctor Who right here, or just skip ahead a few more minutes to hear his Dalek voice right here.
(He also discusses Eccleston as an actor in general a minute or so after he mentions Doctor Who)
