The Doctor & Captain Picard together? Make it so!

"Nearly five decades and 1,500 episodes in the making! The two greatest science fiction properties of all time cross over for the first time in history!"

I am a happy nerd girl tonight, after reading Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation - Assimilation2 #1. I had to read it on both my MacBook and my iPhone just because :)

My inner collector resisted the urge to possess the paper book and got the eComic - which although it lacks that fresh ink smell, lacks absolutely nothing else. The full-colour artwork is gorgeous. The characters ring true; I could even hear their voices in my head - well, the Doctor's, Amy's & Rory's anyways. This issue was more Whovian than Trekker, but, there are 8 in the series, perhaps the next one will be a little more Trekkish. I'm sure I'll be equally pleased either way :)

And I love how the story left off ...  Bring on #2!

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Nerd Girl T-shirt

I got a new t-shirt today. And discovered how much I suck at the iPhone self-snap. I must lack some sort of basic skill. VoilĂ , c'est moi, Nerd Girl, et mon t-shirt:

Here are some t-shirt designs I missed out on and want ... so if any of you lovely readers (and there are currently 4 of you!) sees one... I'd love for you to let me know! Leave a comment, I'll get an e-mail :)


Snoochie boochies!

Watch This: Captain Jack Will Get You High

My friends Karen,  Jenn  and I get up to some pretty silly geeky conversations late at night; a recent one was discussing songs appropriate for a DW/TW playlist, and sharing DW/TW-themed YouTube music videos. Somehow we didn't come across this little gem that night - even though the very song came up... but one of Karen's friends shared it on her Facebook wall today - thank you Matthew!

I'd love to know why videos are so wonky on my blog as compared to on YouTube...

Oh, and Karen did make a playlist! If you must have it, email me & I'll see if she'll share :)
