You’ve Got Nothing to Prove


The Doubleclicks are an awesome musical duo made up of sisters Angela and Aubrey Webber. Their music is folky, witty, sometimes geeky, and all around fun. One of my favorites is Oh, Mr. Darcy.

Fandoms for Everyone


A few months ago I attended my first Hawaii Geek Meet. The Hawaii Geek Meet is an annual event where people of various fandoms come together, eat lots of food, and just hang out. It’s a very casual affair, with a couple of medieval fencing demonstrations thrown in. The fandoms that were represented were quite [...]
