20 Oct

Not too long ago I fell in love with the UK version of Primeval which led to checking out the Syfy channel version Primeval: New World. I loved it. And bonus fun, there was a hauntingly beautiful song at the end of one episode that I had to have. Continue reading

Hunting the Wild Barrowman

15 Apr

One would think that this mission- a picture with John Barrowman- would not be a difficult task, but this is a mission 5 years in the making! But in order to tell the story, I have to start at the beginning-

Captain-Jack-Harkness-John-barrowman-and-David-Tennant-doctor-who-34840887-600-480In the fall of 2006, I had uprooted myself from sunny California to the great city of Chicago in order to complete a masters degree. Through the social networking and fandoms at the time, I was blessed with friends all over the world- but none in Chicago. The closest people I knew were relatives in Wisconsin (who I didn’t really know) and a dear friend at the southern end of Illinois. So… as I waited for classes to start and semi wandered the city to acclimate myself, I also dug into shows and movies that I had missed. One such was the 2005 Doctor Who, with Christopher Eccleston. Now I remember watching DW as a kid on PBS (though I couldn’t tell you who my first Doctor was) and I know I watched the 1996 telefilm on FOX with the 8th Doctor, but I really didn’t know much about the series.

Highlights of 2013, a NerdLush year in review

13 Jan

Many thanks to Emily for starting the year off with a drunk year in review. Made me laugh. But I’m poking my head in now with a slightly more serious look back at 2013 and where it took NerdLush. As well as some of the favorites, as voted on by fans. Continue reading

Wanted… Dead or Alive… preferably alive, though.

9 Oct

I can’t be witty when I am tired. Bear with me. Just in from a a very fun concert event and though a review from me right would suck, I do want to share some. Essentially this is the important piece you need to know- Bon Jovi puts on a damn fine show. Continue reading

I’m out of posts! I’m out of time! I’m out of Music! Help!

5 Oct

So… it’s one of those months. There is both too much and too little to post on. And I’m completely swamped. My brain is too tired to come up with a topic for today and sadly, I’m out of backlogged and scheduled posts.

It’s been a while since I did a music post though, and I’d really like to do another. Continue reading
