A quick update or personal note from your gracious host.

Beautiful Space-Scape in Motion

Amazing space GIF’s HAVE to be shared with everyone in the world. So now share them. It’s your duty.

Young Bazilisk here (Sylvia to the “normies”), one of the contributers at the Nerd-Base has found this awe inspiring series of gifs taken of our sweet home. (we think she took them herself when she stole the cruiser from our moon base the other night).

Obviously, real credit goes to NASA. If you as well find these images as glorious as we do, please take the moment in whatever ways you find possible to support our space program as it is currently in danger of losing a devastating amount of funding come the next fiscal year.

MEEEAAAD!!!

Of course. We here at the Nerd-Base are long time nerds/geeks, what have you. We were raised on a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy. This post in particular considers the fantasy aspect.

Growing up, if it wasn’t lasers and space ships, it was swords and sorcery, so it was only natural that as I got to be of a drinking age (*ahem*16*ahem*), I’d be looking to drink the libations of my heroes.

Mead.

That mythical honey wine, steeped in ancient tradition and tales of glory. To this day I don’t think I’ve ever had a mug of mead and not thought of Vikings or Cimmerians. It helps that it’s absolutely delicious.

I also played a lot of D&D, both table top and old video games, so the natural progression of that was going to Renaissance Fairs and eventually joining/hanging out with the good folks in the SCA. Through them I was introduced to a litany of home brews, each delicious, each dangerous, hehe.

Well, having always wanted to brew my own, but never having the time or space for it has been a constant regret, but if you’re interested, one of my favorite sites, Gizmodo, has a great article on home brewing mead that you may want to check out!
