A sports post in a "nerd" blog? Th' heck?!

Written by: Christopher Lee

Swimmin' Voldy

If you look up just about anything on the Olympics today, you’re bound to see any one of the litany of sites offering “Top <insert # here> Pictures of Olympic Synchornized Swimmers Frightening Faces”.

I often enjoy a little bit of leisurely photo-manipulation, so here’s my contribution to the fold.

I’ve opened up photo reply, so feel free to show me your versions!!

When I started this blog, I had every intention of it being a sort of “full-bodied” geek blog. Where I (and any contributers that I may find, still lookin’ guys…) could really just post anything that I could be nerdy/geeky about. That could honestly be ANYTHING. It’s a very large misunderstanding that all geeks are into naught but Comics, Video Games, RPG’s and the like. But truth be told, some of us are into other things. I could sit here and go on and on about music, movies, and yes, I get really into the Olympics. I used to play basketball in H.S. Sports aren’t really as bad as some more “traditional” nerds & geeks make them out to be. I mean, you won’t find me watching foosball, but if someone says, “Hey man, wanna go out and play baseball/basketball/hockey/ect…” I’ll probably say yes. It’s fun!

So there you have it. A little insight into me (Chris) and what I intend this blog to be. I may not update it as often as I’d like, but sometimes you just hit a rut. THAT’S why I am still asking for contributers/writers. 

I plan to be porting over to WordPress within the next month/month 1/2. Anyone who could lend a hand is more than welcome. You can email me at nerdbasego@gmail.com.

THANKS!!!

You too can make an awesome Dragon Priest masks from "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim"

My pal Nicci (aka in certain circles, Björn-Lagmancer) just signed up onto tumblr (where this site is hosted fyi). Here’s her blog. She just sent this to me, it’s pretty rad. For such a nut, the girl’s got some great (read: pretty sick) artistic costume/prop making skills.

She recently embarked on a venture to create her own Dragon Priest masks (which are pretty damned rad if not to dissimilar from the Death Eater masks in “Harry Potter” though a lot cooler) from Skyrim. She made a video, check it out! (FYI, she makes it look easy. Knowing her, I’m sure it’s just to poke fun at those who try to do the same, haha)

and finished after she had painted them:

Nicci Fett's Dragon Priest mask

To round out the post, here’s a pic of her in her Skyrim/Dovahkiin costume that she wore at a recent con (minding you, again, that she made herself). 

Nikki's Dovhakin costume

I’m thinking I might have to commission her to make some pieces for me.
