nerds in the media... [Mar. 28th, 2006|08:47 am]
Chicago Nerds

this place needs some discussion, yes? well, I meant to post this when I joined, but didn't get around to it. better late than never!

anyway.. so what do you think of how nerdy people are portrayed on tv and in movies? I've never seen that "beauty and the geek" show, but I saw a commercial where the girls were giving the geeks makeovers, so obviously geek=bad in that context.

anyway, I'm a girl, and twice movies have come out in the last I dunno, 8-ish years and people have told me the girl in the movie reminds them so much of me! so I saw these horrible movies, and now I'm going to talk about them.

this might get long...Collapse )

someday I'm gonna write a high scool movie about a geek girl who stays a geek, and is happy that way...

I think the more interests the more chance that people randomly happen upon this baby.

Just a friendly yellow [Feb. 12th, 2006|12:33 am]

Hola kids,

A late-mid-twenties nerd here, married to a nerd and expecting our first nerd offspring this June. I work for a dotcom downtown, live on the north side (think Lincoln Square) and try to nerd it out as often as possible.

Any CCG nerds here over the age of 21? Let me know, I have a great game I'm trying to recruit some interest in. Also, if anyone wants an @nrrd.net email address forwarding to their own, let me know. Take care, y'all.

Howdy Chicagoland Nerds and Geeks! I just wanted to let you know I joined and am excited about seeing this list possibly GROW to something really cool!

I live in Tinley Park and have a parttime job in a Bookstore, Bookie's Paperbacks, in Chicago. Great place to find SciFi and Fantasy Lit along with some rather inexpensive comics and Horror!

Oh and I RPG with some people out there too. What do you all do?

Will promo this site on my LJ!

This is my first community ever so I'm not 100% sure how to get things going. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get more members and such let me know.
