Nerds come in all shapes and sizes. In case you haven’t heard of Keltie Colleen, she became the idol of thousands of young dancers as a Radio City Rockette (one of the most prestigious dance organizations in the entire universe). While I’m no dancer (I can’t even walk very well), I very much admire people that work their ass off to accomplish something huge and actually pull it off.
Last month we asked some of our readers who they wanted us to talk to next, and Carrie Keagan’s name was on the top of the list. Carrie actually intercepted our tweets and agreed to do the interview on the spot… that sort of thing generally doesn’t happens to us, so we were jazzed to say the least.
Sean Hackett is the director, writer, producer, and co-star of the independent feature Homecoming. Last year I had the pleasure of seeing Sean “in action“, and, my time on set was incredibly positive. Even late into the night, Sean kept morale high, got his shots done, and had time to laugh it up with the cast and crew. It was awesome to see such a competent young young director having a blast while doing his job. We asked Sean a series of probing questions shortly after his “Best U.S./International Film” win at the Kansas City Film Festival. Check it out!
Without Scott’s character Jeff, Chuck would run the risk of becoming “just another spy show” Jeff Barnes is Chuck’s creepiest denizen, and brings the laughs in virtually every scene he’s in. Don’t even get us started on the musical sensation that is “Jeffster”…
Star Wars: The Clone Wars has quickly become one of my favorite things on television. That feeling of raw “magic” that Star Wars made you feel as a little kid is still alive and well every Friday night on Cartoon Network. In honor of the season 3 finale we have the amazing Ashley Eckstein here on our site. The voice of Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tanno, Ashley has transformed Ahsoka into the heart and soul of The Clone Wars. And while we may already know the fates of Anakin, Obi Wan, and Yoda, Ahsoka’s future remains a total mystery.
A wise old wizard once told me that it is quite rare to see a unicorn in the wild. We here at NerdAppropriate.com are incredibly pleased to bring you not a single unicorn, but an entire Team of Unicorns sent to dazzle and amaze. In case you were not aware Team Unicorn is a group of lady nerds based out of Los Angeles California. In recent years their You Tube videos (Geek and Gamer Girls, A Very Zombie Holiday, and Super Harmony) have gotten over 1 million views on You Tube alone. Much like Nerd Appropriate, Team Unicorn exists due to their love and passion for all things nerdy. Sit back, grab a mountain dew, and hear what these ladies have to say.
A few weeks ago Matt and I made our way up to PAX:East. It was a great adventure to say the least, and while there we witnessed one of the best panels we’d ever seen, The “Other” Us. The panel focused on gender, community, and the world of gaming in general. “The ‘other’ us” inspired us to write some articles that hopefully you’ve had a chance to read (Ash and Matt) by now. The mastermind behind the panel was one Allison Thresher, former CM turned junior choreographer at Harmonix. I had the pleasure of talking with Allison about the panel, gender in gaming, PAX Pox, and other shenanigans. Enjoy!
I love independent film. A long time ago, in the time of dragons, I used to want to make movies myself. So when I see something special, I feel like it’s my job as a film nerd to plug the hell out of it. I’m elated excited to bring you an interview with Mr. Nicholas McCarthy who just recently returned from Sundance 2011 in support of his moody thriller “The Pact”. Growing up on horror films it takes a lot to make the hair on my arms stand up and having recently watched The Pact, I can say with total sincerity that Mr. McCarthy has the directing chops to scare the crap out of you.
For members of the sci-fi community the name Jewel Staite is instantly recognizable. From starship mechanics, to inter-dimensional doctors, Jewel brings a likability and quirky charm to whatever role she inhabits. I’ve been a fan of Jewel for a long time, but like most of you out there she first caught my eye as the unrefined starship mechanic Kaylee on Joss Whendon’s spectacular, yet short lived series Firefly. After Firefly’s tragic and unwarrented execution, Jewel went on to join the cast of Star-Gate: Atlantis, as Dr. Jennifer Keller.
Brea Grant is a bit of an anomaly. Most folks recognize her has the ill fated speedster Daphne on NBC’s Heroes. Shortly after that Brea geared up to appear in Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2, one of horror’s most beloved franchises. Brea then went on to co-create the historical zombie gore-fest “We Will Bury You” for IDW publishing. Having met Brea on a handful of occasions I can tell you she’s as nice as she is talented. Enjoy this candid conversation about zombies, history, time travel, and talking dogs.
People on the internet can be famous for a variety of reasons. Sadly, the quickest route to internet fame involves getting hit in the privates or starring in your very own badly lit sexual adventure. However, Veronica Belmont has achieved internet fame simply by being intelligent and awesome; and we are elated to bring you our exclusive interview.
Anamanaguchi may not be a household name to some, but anyone who played the phenomenal Scott Pilgrim: The Game on Xbox Live this past summer will be well aware of their music. Anamanaguchi play in what is called the chiptune…
