A Supreme Nerd God

Supposedly that is what I am, a Supreme Nerd God. At least according the NerdTests.com Here is how I rated:

Overall, you scored as follows:

3% scored higher (more nerdy),
0% scored the same, and
97% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD!!!

No I didn’t cheat, and yes I’m slightly embarrassed at my score. So I challenge you, my loyal readers to take the test, post your results, and let your nerdiness all hang out.


In the Company of Ogres

In the Company of Ogres

I just finished a new novel by A. Lee Martinez titled In the Company of Ogres. In one of my not so typical (at least since having kids) undertakings, I finished this book in one day. Martinez follows in the Robert Aspin Myth Adventures style of fantasy writing by combing extreme absurdity, whimsical comedy, complete stupidity, and a protagonist who keeps getting himself killed, but can never seem to stay dead.

The story revolves around Never Dead Ned, a particularly boring, unenthusiastic, and seemingly average solider with no ambitions who just got transferred from the accounting department in the Brute’s Legion to become the company commander of the Ogre Company. What follows is good work that mixes humor, folly, military daring, and some truly wild characters in to pretty good tale.

I would definitely say that is worth the read. 3.5 out 5 stars.

The Evolution of Dance

I ran across this hilarious video today while surfing. It has a lot of dance steps spanning the 70s, 80s, and 90s. It is performend by Judson Laipply as the finale on his “Inspirational Comedy” speaking engagements. It has been called by some “the funniest 6 minutes you’ll ever see.” While I never was much of a dancer, I do at least remember most of the songs and many of the steps from watching TV.
