I just love me some Threadless t-shirts. They’re having another sale with all tees $9 and I again couldn’t resist not buying some. Normally the tees cost $17, so the discount seems too good to pass up on. The first tee I’m getting is Adorable Disaster. I saw this one more than a year ago and I still have to smile every time I see it.

Adorable Disaster

The second tee is called A Voyage of Discovery and I just love the detail of this design:

A Voyage of Discovery

I’ve got 4 other t-shirts from Threadless and so far I’m pretty impressed by them. I used to get a lot of Emily Strange and David & Goliath T-shirts, but I always had problems with those (shrinking in the wash, fading, etc). These Threadless ones though are much better and a whole lot cheaper. So head on over to Threadless, while the sale still lasts!

Interesting links for March 11th through March 20th:

  • A la Cart: The Secret Lives of Grocey Shoppers – A book by Hilary Carlip about discarded shopping lists. Based on 26 lists she’s found, she creates and imagines the people who would have written them and turns herself into those characters. Take a look at the flash intro; it explains it all.
  • We Tell Stories – Six authors, six stories, six weeks. For the next six weeks, stories will come out, each with a different unique method of presentation. This week’s The 21 Steps, for instance, uses Google Maps.
  • By Ken Levine: If a major studio gave notes on JUNO – What if the screenplay of Juno had landed in the hands of a major Hollywood studio? Can you imagine what the demands of the studio would have been? How the story would have been rewritten?
  • Interview: David Hewlett – Great interview with Hewlett who plays Dr. Rodney McKay in Stargate: Atlantis. It’s cool to see how much of a geek he is himself.

A Video A Day: Nerd Girls

March 14th, 2008

Episode 44: “Oh, I’ve been transformed… into your dream girl”

This first video is a bit cheesy and I honestly don’t find it that funny. It’s a hotline with nerd girls that will talk nerdy to you and do “standard” nerdy things for/with you like light saber fighting. Sigh…

This second video is a pretty funny response to that first one by nerd girl zendulo, enraged by them claiming that nerd girls don’t exist. She proceeds to proove her nerdiness.

I always see myself more as a geek, but I have to admit I know:

  1. what TIE fighter stands for.
  2. the names of all Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
  3. which colour each of them are,
  4. which weapon each one of them wields.
  5. the Lord of the Rings ring inscription by heart.
  6. what Mandalorian armor is.

Does this make me more of a nerd? Nah, I’m much more of a geek. Besides, Miss Nerdy doesn’t sound nearly as cool as Miss Geeky does!

Interesting links for February 27th:

  • Evolution of Nintendo Characters – The various depictions of Mario, Link and Donkey Kong throughout the years. Those last ones though aren’t in-game, right?
  • Playboy Towel – When you hear “Playboy towel” I bet you’re thinking it’s a pink towel with the rabbit on it, right? It isn’t. This is slightly different. I can’t imagine a girl actually getting this towel and using it.
  • The neurobiology of the Mona Lisa’s smile – Pretty neat explanation of why Mona Lisa’s smile looks so mysterious.
  • mydeco – Cool design-your-room web app. Not the first of it’s kind, but better than the ones I’ve seen so far.
  • Hitchcock Classics – Again the collection of Hitchcock photos, but now from the original source (Vanity Fair).
