Geek Seekers has arrived

One of the very first kickstarter projects I backed was Geek Seekers – a nerdy paranormal investigation webshow from Jen Page and Monte Cook.  Yeah, you probably best know Monte as the December guest on the Nerd Tangent Podcast.  I’m pretty sure that’s his claim to fame. Anyway, they’ve just posted the first two episodes […]

Nerding with the Kids

In April of 2013, my oldest daughter officially hits 13 and becomes a teenager.  She’s already preparing by spending more time shut away in her room or off with friends, and I’ve been trying to figure out an activity that we could share to maintain some involvement in her teen years.  I’ve tried to share […]

The Hobbit: Dwarf Cheat Sheet

Podcasting Fun

A Nerd Tangent podcast is something that I’ve wanted to do since I launched this site – almost it’s reason to exist.  But it took a long time to get organized and make it happen.  I didn’t want to launch it until I could have it appear weekly, on a regular schedule.  That’s one of the […]
