I just love the Rolling Stones. Don’t you? Every time I hear or even read that line, Mic Jagger’s voice slides through my mind and the Sympathy for the Devil plays in the background of my thoughts for a while. So, moving right along, my name is Jessica and I have a book…addiction, we’ll say. Well, it is really more stories than anything else. My quest for great stories has led me to find them in all sorts of places: books, history (it isn’t JUST facts and dates, kids), letters, movies, television…. This love of discovering the worlds of others’ imaginations (often fantastical worlds at that) labeled me a “geek” long before it was cool, but I never really minded.
So why “Geekology”? The internet has made the world an amazing and amazingly weird place. It has also opened up all kinds of doors to show me that there are A LOT of mediums for storytelling and even more stories that I really know absolutely nothing about. Some of these stories are the ones that others have called “iconic” as a matter of fact. Seriously, I’ve been missing out. So, I’m learning here. The 101 is because I’ve realized that I really am a novice here. There is so much that I know that I don’t know…right that sentence kind of got away from me. I’m at the freshman level here, so to speak. Hopefully we can learn together.
So, what am I going to be doing with this whole blog thing? That is a really excellent question, ladies and gentlemen, and I’m sure we’ll figure it out together. To begin, I thought I’d share some of the awesome stuff I’m finding (because it is REALLY awesome!) Some of it’s new, some of it not so much. (I’ve missed out on a lot, I’m telling you!) Please, comment, send me emails you can follow me on twitter @ilovegeekology, and that way you can see how I’m discovering some of this cool stuff.
Since I’m finding all this amazing new/old stuff or rather new to me stuff or sometimes just plain new stuff, I want to share. Kind of like a review. Books, movies, shows, even games (Maybe games, I suck at games!) I like games, but I’m not very good at competitive events I know I won’t win…yea, I know. I just got a PS3 so I’m trying it out though.
