Have you seen the new Wonder Woman’s new trailer? It points at a great movie coming up! That’s why I’m so happy with it. However, I keep being cautious. Why? Because I didn’t like what DC has done with their movies lately. I haven’t liked any single one of them, to be honest. So, Wonder Woman seems to come as a great relief for me.
It appears that Wonder Woman is a kick-ass Amazon who will help humanity during WWII. My only hope is that DC won’t mess her up since she is one of their pillars. Although I’m a Marvelite, I do like some DC Superheroes. And one of them happens to be Wonder Woman. So, if they mess her up, I won’t be hitting the cinemas for a DC movie ever again! (Yup, I’m that harsh)
Do what you can’t! I know it isn’t the piece you were waiting for the International Women’s Day. However, this is it. Do you know how many times I’ve listened to “you can’t” in my life? A zillion times!
Yay! I made another unboxing! The FairyLoot unboxing February 2017 was super fun. First, because I got the box in record time (it was sent on Friday, and I got it on Saturday); and, second, because the contents are amazing! If you’re a bookworm obsessed with fantasy and science fiction, this box is an excellent idea. Plus, it has something called reading buddies. You get a card with a code. Someone else will get the same code. You post a picture, unboxing video or whatever on your social media, use your code and find your buddy! So, I hope that my potential future partner is out there and is as crazy as I am. Please, post something on your social media so I can find you!
This post (and the video) contain tons of spoilers. Boxes are still on their way for many people, so if you’re waiting for yours and don’t want to be spoiled, I recommend you to stop reading here. And, of course, stay away from the video. If you aren’t a subscriber or you don’t mind spoilers, keep on reading and discover the treasure!
Today is the World Anthropology Day, according to the American Anthropological Association (aka AAA). What better way to celebrate it than exploring the art of geek observation? Anthropologists observe what people do, why they do it, how they do it, and even when they do it. To explore a culture is to explore humanity. But can only anthropologists engage in the art of observation? Can we, as observed beings, also become the ones who observe?
Usually, the ones observing what’s going on are anthropologists. They watch, interact and take part into the object of study. But can we, as geeks, do the same? We have the idea that Anthropologists are either “Indiana Jones” or like dull academic creatures. However, we, geeks, can be anthropologists too.
So, it happened with J.K.Rowling’s Wizarding World Loot Crate unboxing! I made a video! It took me three days of wait until I could open my box and prepare myself to talk in front of a camera. This box came quite late since Loot Crate came up with some problems getting all the items. As I understood, we had to choose our House, and they would send us times from our House. However, items came mixed. To my delight, I got a tee from Slytherin. It seems that they’ll be sending a House-themed box next time. I hope they do since I was expecting that from this box.
When I was sorted in Pottermore, I got Ravenclaw. Then I tried again, and I got into Slytherin. So, I suppose I must be a mix of them: Raverin. Although I end up rooting for Slytherin, I have to confess that I do have Ravenclaw traits. Besides, I love Luna as well!
We’re at that dreadful moment of the year when we have to do the planning for 2017. Let’s face it, we all start the new year with good intentions but abandon them somewhere around February. Despite the odds, I intend to follow “the plan.” Plan is a much better word than resolution. Or so it seems according to all dictionaries that I’ve checked. Planning involves a stronger commitment than the poor resolution wishes that go out from our mouths at the beginning of the year. But fear not, 2017 intends to be different, and so we shall plan accordingly.
My evil plots for world domination shall come into fruition during 2017. Oh, wait! These are the plans for the blog, not my personal most darkest desires! Excuse me, hang on a second. Oh yes, here they are!
Welcome to another Nerdy Bookworm Box unboxing! This time we’re discovering all the goodies from the December box. Before spoiling all the contents, I must say that this is one of my favorite boxes ever. You never know what you’re going to get, but you’re sure you’re going to have a great book. It does feel like Xmas every single month! And this is one of the high points of this box. I simply adore it!
Yay! The Nerdy Bookworm Box November 2016 unboxing is here at last! Since I was visiting my parents, I couldn’t unbox this beautiful treasure. When I landed, the first thing I did was to open the box! I must say that this subscription box is one of the best out there. The jewel in the box is the book, of course. However, there are many other goodies that you’re going to love if you subscribe: a scented candle, geeky treats, and digital extras.
The book in the box was Moon Chosen by P.C. Cast, the first book of a fantasy series where animals accompany humans when darkness comes. The box also contains a Magizoology candle that celebrates J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Today is a special day! It’s My Open Sketchbook Unboxing day! Time ago I asked a Captain Hook from OUAT to Kay Nyman, the wonderful artist behind the blog My Open Sketchbook. I met her online, and I started following her blog and her art. I love what she does, and I love her art journey. Because I was going to move home, I decided to ask for something to decorate my new working space.
I love many different characters: Loki, Hook, Lagertha, Ragnar… However, I wanted to hook people when they visit my tiny working realm. And so, I chose Hook (and when I can, I might add Swan to the pot). The commission was for a Killian Jones in his naughty glory. Kay asked some pics I love as a reference, and so I sent her some.
Before you keep reading, I must tell you something. She included an extra! What I asked was a colored smoldering pirate to swoon all over. What I got was that and more! I’m so thrilled because the extra surprise is no other than my favorite Hookadorkable pic!!!
What I’m watching at the moment can be found on Netflix (yes, talking about Netflix again!) I’ve been having fun with magic on Netflix, but I’ve also got into some fantastic documentaries on feminism and masculinity. I’ll start with the fun part, and then I’ll get serious.
Merlin is a jewel! I had no idea this show was so good! I discovered it by chance on Netflix, and I decided to give it a go. Now I understand why Merlin’s fandom is still so strong! (And also why you ship Merlin with Arthur!) If you haven’t seen this jewel yet, please do so. It’s amazing! The only problem: you’ll like to see it forever! Alas, there’s all there’s to be on Netflix. So, chill and enjoy the magic!
