Alive.. Not Dead…

I have been away for a long time now… Because of that, my Blog is beyond a mess inside and out. It seems that after New Years everything stopped, motivation kinda went out the window.. Not that I wanted to write and share my adventures.. Just when I sit down to write, I look blankly at the screen or become side tracked with something else.

There are also personal reasons why I’ve been away. One of them being the one year anniversary of my Father’s death… I know at some point I’ll dive into more details on everything at a later date.

So! What is missing so far this year? I glad you asked! I would love to show you want I’ve been slacking on hahaha:

Media coverage of Wizard World Portland 2017

Star Wars Book Challenge

Personal rants and raves

Website layout & new logos

Tech Reviews

New Podcast set up

Yeah…. There is a lot of work ahead of me on here. I might go back to basics and fix everything first. Aside from personal life, there is work life that is eating up a lot of time as well. By the time I finish with work, I really don’t want to do anything else hahaha. BUT! Now having said that, I figure I’d write to you all to let you all know I’m alive! I’m not DEAD! I know some of you sent messages saying “hello”, “how are you?” and or, “are you okay?”. I know I didn’t write back to some of you, I’m sorry about that. I haven’t been on social media much as of late..

At any rate, my goal is to get some writing done this week and weekend. I want to finish the website layout too this weekend!! God things are such a mess, it driving my O.C.D nuts!!

Construction

under_constructionOver the next couple of weeks Nerdy Life Of Mine will be going through a lot of changes. I’m working on a whole new layout and image, so if things are buggy or if you find links are broken. I’m sorry and I thank you for understanding. Plus with all the changes going on, we have picked up a new blogger and we are also working on putting together a podcast!! Again thank you for your understanding and if you would like more updates, follow my Twitter @iRoberts3

So it’s been an interesting month so far. There is so much to write about and share. Plus this Halloween/anniversary weekend was great fun with lots of pictures. So tomorrow or Friday I will share with you all everything that went on in October :). Figure I’d give a update, because I feel I’ve been ignoring my blog this past month haha. 

Anywho! Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! Oooooooo the candies ! 

Pokémon GO  Issue Report 

This is a list detailing current PokémonGO issues and how Niantic has responded to each one so far. 

pop pop..! it’s trash culture.: The Year of Trash

2015 was not particularly great for It’s Trash Culture. My attention shifted from posting here and turned to other social medias, like Twitter and Instagram, where minimum effort paid out a much larger reward. Those accounts have accumulated several hundred more followers than this blog, which is equal parts awesome and sorta’ heart-breaking. Neither of them would exist without this, the place I started to celebrate all the stupid and wonderful things that have won my heart over the years. I’m here to wax nostalgic and to share the bizarre stuff I’ve unearthed in my constant search for more pop-culture bullshit. That’s always been my mission statement, and the previous year was a complete failure. Well, okay, mostly complete. I did manage to get halfway through the Friday the 13th franchise before slacking off and disappearing for two months.

My Married Nerdy Life Of Mine ;)

We’re tieing the  knot on Halloween! I’ll be make a much more in depth post & with pictures, etc.! When the time comes of course. 😉

Oh My…….

So with my crazy work hours and normal everyday day. I have found some time to post a few little updates! YAY!!

So a couple of weeks ago, I have stepped back from Geek Fallout Podcast as a editor/Host. I’ll act as a guest spot from time to time. Hopefully once I have a under control I might come back to GF to pick up my editor job. With my new job it’s becoming harder and harder for me to to sit down and work on the GF. I’m finding that my editing times are slipping and I’ve starting to feel really bad about holding up the podcast. I would still to be a guest spot or a “fill in” host for anyone or if someone is really in a pickle about editing, I wouldn’t mind helping out.. I just can’t keep up with my regular editing/hosting duties. I feel bad for Chris L. because I know he wanted to take a step back from a lot of this and I’m sorry.

Aside from this update from myself Chris Lockhart from Geek Fallout has updated the everything and said this:

” Just to let you all know I am going to be adding GF: The Comic Book Episodes and Trek1701 to the main ‘Geek Fallout’ feed on Podbean (which will be reflected on iTunes and stitcher). Then I will (probably) be renaming the GF feed as ‘Geek Fallout Productions’ (instead of RN/GF Podcast Productions). The episode numbering will remain the same and hopefully increase exposure for all the podcasts. Also economically it makes sense as it will be less money out of my pocket overall. This change will take place over the coming weeks, I will keep you all updated as to what happens. Thanks everyone!

– Chris”

So the website will be changing and I’ll post those changes once everything is ready.

Now as for Eclectic Mayhem Podcast! Everything is rolling forward as normal. We have two EPS that are finished and will be posting them soon. One being the much talked about Robot eps (which I did on pain meds do to my back giving me issues.) Hopefully you like it. It really seemed all over the place HAHAHA! After that we’ll be doing our Saturday Morning Cartoons EPS!!! A fantastic and one of my favorite podcast so far.

THEN! we will have our next podcast with a special guest Stacey Rader of Aventures of a Geeky Vixen Blog. Podcast will be called The Guardians of the Galaxy Mixtape Extravaganza Episode… Or something of the nature.. Derek Ash will be hosting this podcast and he has made a few rules based around Stacey’s blog post (https://geekyvixen.wordpress.com/2014/08/25/the-emotional-depth-of-the-awesome-mix/).

To sum up Stacey, (with some details of Derek’s own mind) the rules of the GotG Soundtrack seem to fit the following:

1. Music must be from the late sixties to seventies (In my imagination, songs from the VERY early 80’s… like 1980-1981 MIGHT fit if they sound right)
2. Songs must comment on Peter’s mother, father, or Peter’s relationship to one or both of them, somehow. The fact that Peter’s mom loves Peter’s dad and wants him to return… The fact that Peter and his father don’t know each other… The love between them all… The special nature of Peter’s father, being an alien, etc.
3. In a lot of cases, the songs must be able to serve a double purpose of commenting on a scene in an action/comedy/sci-fi/superhero epic. David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” works really well in this respect, being our introduction to Knowhere but the scene where Peter challenges Ronan to a dance of to “O-O-H Child” suitable for its message of hope and comedic contrast. Basically you have to be able to justify the song with a scene that fits it somehow.
4. The songs have to be listenable. They can’t be awful.

So we’ll pick out three songs that we like and explain why. We’ll also be going over Mixtapes in general & our feelings/relationships with them. History, school, friends and family. Personally I can NOT wait till this podcast. It’s going to be FANTASTIC(as the great 9th Doctor once said!!!).

I’m also working on Nerdy Life Of Mine with a few massive changes in looks and functionality. I might be changing on who writes on this blog.. In the end it might be just myself. It’s been a busy year for myself and with lots of changes a foot. I really need to re-think everything and organize everything :).

So thank you all for following and reading!! Means so much!

India’s update!

CEhZ5W4UIAAwX7u

I haven’t posted in a couple months, wow! I’ve been busy with college and studying for my mid-term. Well, now with my mid-term over I can post more! Sadly, I don’t have any idea of what to write so here is an edit I can of myself with my new bandanna. I feel the rockabilly running through my veins!

Eclectic Mayhem Podcast *UPDATE*

Eclectic Mayhem Podcast

News & Updates for everyone!!

So by this time we had hope to get our first podcasting episode out by now. But do to a technical problem it only recorded about 14 minutes of the two hour and half podcast…… Well I should say it only recorded 10 minutes of usable audio and 4 minutes of choppy static and dead silence for the next few hours. I really don’t know what caused this to happen. The only thing I can think of that might have effect if more than one call is made over Skype and the recorder freaks out. BUT! Moving forward and learning for our mistakes, I found a new recording program that works really well. Plus we’ll take breaks in between cuts to make sure everything is recording correctly. Well you the listener wouldn’t know this or hear, this is mostly for editor’s note haha.

So this Thursday we are RE-RECORDING  our first episode for the Eclectic Mayhem Podcast!! Then we should have it uploaded by this weekend and all the goodies! The roster for Eclectic Mayhem is:
