    Top 5 Comedy Nerd Bands

    Kids are typically introduced to comedy through music and jokes. My earliest memories are of listening to comedians like Billy Connolly and watching The Muppet Show. I loved how fun it was to get a good song stuck in your head (that would continue to make you laugh upon recall). As I got older I discovered bands that aligned to my nerdy tendencies – bands that also happened to be hilarious. They’d sing songs about games and having geeky hobbies, things the […]

  • Drunk Men – MAD MEN Rewatch: (S01E13) The Wheel

    Drunk Men – MAD MEN Rewatch: (S01E13) The Wheel

    Welcome to Drunk Men: The Mad Men Rewatch – if you’re new here, we’re up to episode 13 of season one, and I watch it while drinking a cocktail and getting a bit sloshed (see drunk). This episode is called “The Wheel,” which makes me think about that clever comedic song by Tripod about the internet (called The Wheel). For this episode we’re making a Negroni because oranges are round. Like wheels! To make this, you’ll need: 30ml Gin (highly recommend the Melbourne Gin […]

This episode is called “Indian Summer” (oooooh steamy) and calls for a little somethin’ sweet. Today’s cocktail is the Honey Bee in honour of our Queen Bee & Goddess, the character of Rachel Menken. To make this, you’ll need: 75ml Baileys 25ml Whiskey Squirt of honey (basically, how sweet do […]

  • Video Game Review- UNCHARTED: THE NATHAN DRAKE COLLECTION

    Video Game Review- UNCHARTED: THE NATHAN DRAKE COLLECTION

    “It’s like Tomb Raider, except with a guy, and Nathan Drake is SO like Nathan Fillion” my friend said. That was enough to get me interested in playing Uncharted but it took me many months, and an upgrade to a PS4 Pro, that made me actually get off my butt and purchase the games. Enter the PlayStation Network Holiday Sale and I scored the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for a ridiculously cheap price. I’m a huge Tomb Raider fan. […]

    Drunk Men – MAD MEN Rewatch: (S01E09) Shoot

    Welcome to Drunk Men: The Mad Men Rewatch – if you’re new here, we’re up to episode 9 of season one, and I watch it while drinking a cocktail and getting a bit sloshed (see drunk).

  • Carrie Fisher Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (Unofficially)

    Carrie Fisher Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (Unofficially)

    This photo here, showing this dapper gentleman in a Jedi robe, is what we would call in Australia, (my neck of the woods), an “absolute legend”. Jason Thomas recognised something seriously lacking near Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and that is this: Carrie Fisher has no star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In the outpouring of grief that has bound her fans around the globe, he decided to do something about it. If you’re in LA, go to the corner of Hollywood and […]

  • How Carrie Fisher Inspired Me to Live

    How Carrie Fisher Inspired Me to Live

    Does he know? My footsteps patter down the hallway, and I’m dreading the look on my partner’s face. He is checking his phone, but no. Not yet. “What’s wrong?” “She’s gone”. He looks at me for a moment, still tired, barely awake for a few minutes, trying to comprehend what I mean. Then his eyes soften. They sink. He lets out a small breath. He knows. We sit for a couple of hours, absorbed in sorrow. Numb. Caught up in […]

    Chewbacca singing Silent Night is ADORABLE

    Could Chewbacca singing Silent Night have been really terrible? Yes. Yes it could have. But it’s SO SWEET and ADORABLE.  It’s my favourite rendition of Silent Night, followed closely by the Heavy Metal version done by Christopher Lee. Hug something cute and furry and settle into this awesome video made by the clever people at How it Should Have Ended.

  • 10 Holiday Gift Ideas- Budget DIY Geekery

    10 Holiday Gift Ideas- Budget DIY Geekery

    I love the holidays, I love getting to see family members I haven’t seen all year (life is busy) that I have missed terribly, I love getting to eat things I normally don’t find any other time of the year, and I love our annual ritual of watching Die Hard on Christmas Eve. What I don’t love is present shopping. Present buying. Present “deciding”. As you get older you accumulate way too much “stuff”, and you usually end up getting […]

    GILMORE GIRLS: A Year in the Life Review (minimal spoilers)

      Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life…. does not disappoint. It really doesn’t. Promise. Because if you’re going to watch this, you’re one of two types of people. the person who has watched the original series and genuinely wants to know what happens next. the person who wants to know what the fuss is about. I’m definitely the first type. I only finished the original series this year, because life got in the way and prevented me from watching it […]

    GILMORE GIRLS: A YEAR IN THE LIFE Release Schedule (Where to Watch It and When)

    Netflix Australia (Yes, I come from the land down under) did a handy dandy thing and gave us future-dwellers (time zone!) a lovely pic of when we could expect the premiere of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Thursday 25 November. The trouble is, I couldn’t find anything for the rest of the world. Well never fear, Geek Girl Authority is here to save the day! Here is when you can expect Gilmore Girls to air/go live/become watchable […]
