Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter M

28 Mar

I am apparently in a sappy romantic mood following that last one because this weeks DVD is Me Before You. Course, I picked a movie that needed even more kleenex than the last one. Good lord, if I keep this up, I should just buy stock in the company!

Can you spare a dime? Check out the PUNK QUEEN!

3 May

One of the really fun things about running NerdLush is that sometimes we get contacted (or seek out the info ourselves) to help spread the word on a cool, independent project. Since we began, we’ve run several posts talking about the highs and lows of independently (or crowd-sourcing) a project, even enjoyed interviewing several awesome people in regards to their projects.  Continue reading

Oh, BBC, why can’t I quit you?!?!???

10 Nov

Sigh.

I love the BBC.

But I also hate them.

Seriously.

They make me love a television series- like, love love- and then they kill me because there are only six episodes. Or 13. Or maybe 20. And the series ran for multiple years… but that’s all there is. Why, BBC? Don’t you want me to be happy? Continue reading

If you could… Would you?

23 Oct

Last night I went with a friend to see a screening of the new Rachel McAdams movie, About Time (in theaters on November 8th). It was not what I expected. It was so much more. I honestly loved it. I’m not saying it was oscar caliber or anything- it’s rom com inside a dramedy; but it’s sweet and touching and funny and heartfelt. I loved it.

But it made me wonder- If you could… would you? Continue reading

Eureka! There be gold in that there TV show!

17 Dec

For years I’ve lived in a bit of a bubble- some of it by choice, most of it due to necessity. I don’t get out to movies often (those things are frickin’ expensive!). I don’t listen to the radio because everything sounds the same (my recent addiction to the broadway channel on my xm is different)(see my post on my eclectic mp3 collection). And I don’t get into too many new shows. I don’t have TV, cable or otherwise, and haven’t gotten decent reception for years… I live on DVDs and what can be found on the internet. So it kills me when people go crazy for a new show. Especially when that show doesn’t magically appear on Hulu etc to give me a chance to watch it too. Continue reading

Television Graveyard- plot 1, PREY

14 Sep

I have, in my collection of DVDs, a large number of old, short-lived, or maybe little remembered series. I might throw Firefly into this group, but if you call yourself a geek or a nerd, you ought to be familiar with that one. So I’m thinking that from time to time it might be fun to discuss one of these dearly departed television series. Not recaps, per se… just a wee post about them.

We’ll start with one from 1998- PREY
