Hats off to the amazing Crispian Jago. He’s my new hero!


Personal sidenote: I was recently invited to the home of some very dear friends. I love going there. Their generosity and hospitality to me over the years is truly overwhelming. During the evening, I had the rare opportunity (i.e. profound misfortune) of running into someone I’d met there once or twice before. This person holds a black belt in Conspiracy Theories. This person is convinced of their intellectual and moral superiority. This person is also an insufferable Know-It-All. This person is, in short, an colossal bore. I smiled. I nodded. I tried not to stick a fork into the person’s neck.

SOOOO… imagine by delight when I came across Crispian Jago’s invaluable chart this morning! I hope, my little geeks and nerdlings, that you have as much fun with it as I did!



Theatre nerds will get this one right away.


Sadly, theatre nerds will also most likely know exactly what it’s like to be friendzoned. 😦


Grammars Don’t Makes You Into Geekazoid

Grammars Don’t Makes You Into Geekazoid


Reblogged from the The Literal Loudmouth.


The Literal Loudmouth

    Oh dear almighty Father in heaven, may grammar like this title never appear again over the entire course of humanity. Not only does this phrase slander every known truth in the universe, including the commandment of not committing murder, it also is so offensive it would put The Ugly Stepsisters to shame. Please God, just eradicate these types of sentences from existence… In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    These are just one of the many prayers I must make every time I open my Internet Browser, because there are sentences like this plaguing the cybernetic world every single day. The internet has now become a place where we may publish these forsaken sentences onto the bowels of the internet history, and unfortunately, there will continually be the opportunity for many more to come. Comments on Youtube videos, facebook statuses, even blogs I admit… they become the grammatical battlefield, where in most cases…

Gothic Charm School

Gothic Charm School.


You may not tell a book by its cover… but the title sure can give you a giggle. 🙂


Asylum Attendant


Is this my very first book review? I think it might just be. It seems fitting for my first to be the informative and adorable Gothic Charm School by Jillian Venters. Complete with gothy makeup tips, badass illustrations (by the author’s talented husband), and great advice for Goths (and everyone else, really), this book was an enjoyable read. It even confirmed my suspicion that I was a Goth, too! (Sidenote: I once was that person who was too special and awesome to be tied down with labels. Nowadays, I happily embrace them. Maturity is a funny thing.)

I will be shamelessly honest in saying I was drawn to this book because the title reminded me of one of my favorite crappy reality TV shows. The difference is, Gothic Charm School is full of class and Rock of Love: Charm School was full of…trash. (I believe being a stripper/porn star was…

Maila Nurmi – Vampira!

I was going through the most excellent articles over at The Eye of Faith {Vintage} blog when I came across the image of a lovely young lady…


(A very young Maila Nurmi)

I doubt many of you would recognize this girl as she looked in her younger years.

You’re probably more familiar seeing her like this…

vampira-01(Maila Nurmi as Vampira)

Yes, Maila Nurmi played the legendary character Vampira.

vampira-02(Check out that waistline!!)

Dark, lovely, creepy…  her character Vampira quickly became a cult classic.


Vampira is a kind of entity (and you can call her a woman though she is androgynous) that survives in this world. I, Maila Nurmi, am not.”  –  Maila Nurmi

LWC & I Invade Comic-Con (Part 2)!

As I confessed in my previous blog article, until this past Sunday I have never attended any Comic-Con event ever.

All that changed when my trusty superhero sidekick LWC and I entered Comic-Con Niagara Falls 2013!


LWC had the good sense to bring her own backup forces! [1]

CCNF-22-cu(LWC happy to be at Comic-Con!)

Her gang, all of whom are comic-book superhero fans, loved the vendors and the merchandize!

CCNF-03-sm(One of my personal favourites!)

There were cars…

CCNF-12-sm(The TV Batmobile!)

And stars…

CCNF-09-cu(A blurry Adam West – He’s a lot faster than you’d think!)

And more stars…

CCNF-11-cu(No Close-Up for You!)

But my personal all-time favourite thing at Comic-Con was the Cosplay!

CCNF-04-sm(Well there’s something you don’t see every day!)

Some were intricate and well executed…

CCNF-18-sm(Spent time talking with this girl and the costume’s creator!)

Some were superhero sexy…

CCNF-23-sm(Colour me patriotic!)

Some were destabilizingly hot…

CCNF-14-sm(O… M… G!)

Some were Steampunk!

CCNF-08-sm(Where’s Jules Verne when you really need him?)

And some were…

CCNF-07-sm(Naughty girl!)

Harley Quinn…

CCNF-02-sm(Harley and friends!)

Harley Quinn…

CCNF-10-sm(Modern Harley!)

Harley Quinn…

CCNF-19-sm(Casual Harley!)

Harley Quinn…

CCNF-05-sm(“Hi, it’s me. Enough with the Harley Quinn photos, already!”)

These girls were a riot…

CCNF-16-sm(Yea, team!)

Even saw a Cosplay Agent Romanoff (Black Widow) kick some serious butt!

CCNF-13-sm(3 seconds later, this guy was on the floor!)

However, the Comic-Con Niagara Falls 2013 award for Best Costume Ever goes to…

CCNF-15-sm(Hmmm… I think there may have been a bit of election vote-rigging here!)

Well… let’s just say that there have been calls for a recount.

All in all, a good time was had by everyone.

Next stop…


Fan Expo Canada 2013!!


[1] Backup forces consisted of her husband and four sons!
