Tay Zonday


Friday, November 30th, 2007


For those of who don’t know Tay Zonday cruise over to his wikipedia page and find out. The main reason why I think he’s important is because he is one of the first youtube celebrities to get major sponsoring for a Dr Pepper commercial. Another example of how the mainstream media is desperately trying to catch up and grasp a presence on the web. In this case, I think they are quite sucessful as the video produced doesn’t seem like a commercial (even though it is very high quality). They definitely had some good consultants working on this one.

Nerdcore Calendar

nerdcore calendar

So this is the girl from the new Nerdcore Calendar, and I’m thinking. Ummmm. What makes this girl appear intelligent or the least bit nerdy. I know that porn is supposed to live within the world of fantasy. But sorry this new photo set just seems like bland old rehashed naked girlie photos. So I thought, hey maybe this girl was part of the team that developed askimet, or works for Cnet or something so I googled her name. Well, I found out that she’s Karlie Montana, just another standard porn actress. So, the reason I’m bringing this up is that it seems to point to a larger trend of Nerdcore being co opted by the mainstream and morphed into something that doesn’t exist. Kind of how Punk started as a true rebellion and then turned into studded belts available at Wal Mart. For a real nerdy girl who made her own site, runs linux, and is actually interesting you can go to NerdPr0n.com. I have my money on Anna when it comes to a mean game of scrabble or jeopardy :)

13. open filezilla  (or whatever program you use to do FTP stuff)

14. double click website you’re adding WP to

15. drag wordpress folder to website folder

16. make sure all the new wp folders are in the root directory

17. make wp-config file (this doesn’t come with wordpress)

18. in the wordpress folder you’ve got a file called wp-config-sample.php

19. open it with vim (or whatever text editor you use)

20. input your database name/username/password/host info

21. save

22. in Filezilla drag the new wp-config-sample.php file into the root directory

23. after it is transfered. Rename it to be wp-config.php

Nerd Shopping: Hunting for Nerd-Wares

Nerd Shopping: Hunting for Nerd-Wares

A post appeared on BoingBoing a few weeks ago about a neat 8-bit tie available for purchase online. Although it certainly is both geeky and nifty, finding a product engineered to appeal to the nerd doesn’t feel as rewarding as finding a gem in the rough.

Thrift stores attract various types of people. An interesting study could be done on how cheap used items attract people who truly span the gamut. You’ll find both low income families trying to get by and college students looking for retro items at your local Goodwill. I guess I’m more of the latter.

Last week I was playing a board game called Betrayal in the House on the Hill, it’s pretty fun and it got me back into desktop games somewhat. Before I knew it, I found myself browsing ebay looking for an out of print box set of Necromunda. While reading about the game on one of my favorite sites and certainly the most complete boardgame site on the internet BoardGameGeek ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com), I noticed a game called Talisman, which was first made by Games Workshop 25 years ago and still maintaines a loyal following. With this in mind Games Workshop decided to release a 4th edition of the game this month.

And so I’m browsing the local Goodwill and notice their board game section. It’s full of scrabble, monopoly, even some bible quiz game… nothing that interests me. And then a box with an elf and dragon catches my eye. I turn it over and start reading the description. It reads a lot like the description of a game I read about recently. I flip the box back over and then realize what I have found. It reads “Talisman: The Magical Quest Game”. It’s in perfect condition, even with the old school games workshop logo on it. Except this is the first edition from 1983, which is quite rare. I spaz out in the store from both the incredible coincidence and the incredible find. And I feel a bit guilty as I pay the asking price of $3.

I’m not sure if I’m going to ebay it, but I will certainly play a few games and enjoy it like a fine wine.
