5 geeky links (from one geek to another)

"Roses are #FF0000
Violets are #0000FF
All my base
Are belong to you"

Some of you will get the poem that goes with today's post. YAY! Some of you won't, and that's okay. It's kind of a dorky/geeky thing that makes me laugh whenever I see the t-shirts. (Yes, of course there are t-shirts, and I've seen some at ThinkGeek.com because THOSE GUYS, THOSE GUYS, they think of everything, right?). I told it to my sister and she wore this fabulous look of confusion that always makes me want to say to her, "Y U SO BEAUTIFUL?" I've never bothered to read any geeky stuff to her since. (Not even the one I really wanted to, which was: "There’s no place like 127.0.0.1"). Short post because REASONS. Namely, who wants to hear me prattle on? It's all about the links. So, from one geek to another - 5 geeky links that are totally full of win.

Small note: As I was hunting up images for this post I came across this one in Flickr by the Library of Congress that is gorgeously amazeballs. Just wanted to mention that.

Honourable mention:

  • SDCC: San Diego Comic-Con International group on Flickr - Comic-Con is my mothership and one day - ONE DAY - I shall attend. Until then, I visit the SDCC Flick group more times than is good for me and IMAGINE
  • Geek with curves
    From the blog: "Just a geek with love for Lord of the Rings, comics, all things Whedon, Battlestar Galactica, D&D, costumes, renfaires, and most things sci-fi and fantasy. I am mildly obsessed with Star Wars.

    You'll find posts about most of the above things as well as reviews, convention reports, interviews, and random geek squees."

    They are like design/furniture porn. I willingly get lost in there for ages at a time just randomly looking at the most amazing things.

  • Dan Chung's Olympic smartphone blog
    From The Guardian's site: "2012 has been the year that smartphones have started to dominate the world of still photography. Kodak has fallen apart, the cheap digital camera market is in decline, Facebook has offered $1 billion for Instagram. How would a smartphone camera in the hands of a professional photographer perform during this year's biggest sporting event? Follow Guardian photojournalist Dan Chung as he captures the London 2012 Olympics using smartphones."

    Seriously, he covered the Olympics with a smartphone! And captured the most amazing shots. Mad props, Monsieur Chung :)

    Bookshelves of Doom About the site (taken from the header: "Book news, reviews, my life and anything else I think is interesting."

    I ADORE THIS SITE. I can't even - I don't - I just *flails about* As a self-confessed bookish type person, this site hits me right in my everything. (Luckily, I never expected to make money out of putting words together into some sort of coherent structure). There are reviews, and links for, oh gosh, book trailers, new releases, conferences, book sales, covers galore, recommended authors and GAH. Just go look.
