Nerdy and Geeky Ramblings from KeishaB.

What can I say about this episode? It was the most fun I’ve had in a while. Considering the Christmas special they gave us this was practically art.  I enjoyed the Christmas special but I also know that I was Who-Starved.  I’ll start at the beginning.

 

I saw the episode at a movie theater and was not very surprised at how few people were in the theater for this wonderful occasion. I happened to see a hipster version of 9 and he even had the correct Screwdriver. I’ve seen cosplay with the incorrect screwdriver and I don’t know why that increases my nerd-rage.  After some trivia, River is The Doctor’s wife NOT his damn daughter, we were treated to the Series premiere of Class. Class was gory, fun, exciting, scary, and just a delight.

After a short interlude where we meet Pearl Mackie we were blessed with the gift of Series 10 Episode 1 of  Doctor Who titled Pilot. Pilot introduces us to Bill and reintroduces us to Nardole.

Nardole, for those of us who are long-time fans, was introduced to us in the episode titled “The Husbands of River Song”. This was a delightful episode also.  Pilot not only introduces us to Bill and Nardole, but reminds us of why The Doctor is who he is. The Doctor offers to tutor Bill, who isn’t a student at the university The Doctor teaches at. As per usual with The Doctor people are enthralled with The Doctor and tons of people who are not enrolled in the course attend the lectures. We are reminded of The Doctor’s compassion and desire to teach.

 

I could go on and on about how much I loved the episode, but overall I truly enjoyed the episode. I was reminded about why I enjoyed the show to begin with and why I enoyed Moffat’s writing. I’m sad to see Peter go but happy to see Moffat leave. I hope that this is the beginning of a good season.

Hey y’all! I know what you’re thinking, “Keisha you said you had a video to edit and upload”. Well you’re right. I do. I still haven’t edited it. Don’t judge me. I would like to say that it’s because I’ve been busy this week. I’ve been enjoying my spring break and not doing a DAMN THING! Then, of course, we had a hellacious storm and lost power last night and didn’t get it back until about 5pm. I’ll be brief in this post because I want to talk about something that’s on my mind and share a couple of awesome things with you.

My dear friend Nikki who owns and operates bohobabie.com is not only a phenomenal human being but my sister in spirit. We have some fantastic conversations about our spiritual journeys, growth, successes and failures. She will be starting up a blog soon and we will be working together from time to time to discuss meditation and different healing and spiritual modalities.  We look forward to working together when we get the chance.

I found a house that I’m kind of in love with and we’ll be moving in the next month so I’ll, unfortunately, be unable to attend Fan Expo like I initially planned.  I found a home for my tickets and I’m now downsizing (again) and packing. Cross your fingers.

I touch on this in my video, but Y’ALL!, my buddy Aaron over at Mutant A Day turned me on to Moon Girl and Devil Dog by Marvel and I’m in love.  I will do my best to get the video uploaded, but I will recommend you guys getting copies of it.

 

I hope y’all stay awesome! this is a terrible ending I know, but I’m so tired.

 

 

I’ve got a video to edit and upload, so instead of that I thought I would whole-hardheartedly cut the shit with y’all.

I actually struggled with writing this. I wondered if I should even bother telling the story. At the end of the day it comes down to a couple of things: A. I know I’m not the only one and B. Somebody may need to hear what I have to say and they need to know that they aren’t the only one going through it.

I think about how I want this story to go. I could tell you all the drama and the struggles. That’s only a little bit important. What’s important is where I am now. Right now, at this moment, I care about living. I won’t say that I’m suicidal. I’ve never considered myself suicidal. What I considered myself is someone who battles with depression. I’m on the tail end of a bout and I have to admit this was a bit difficult. I can usually catch the depression and fight it during the winter but I didn’t see this bout coming. I have been eating crap foods, I hadn’t been meditating, and I was overly stressed and doing nothing to combat it.  My depression came on so quickly I didn’t know what to do with myself.

To anyone with depression there are things that happen that you can’t quite explain. There’s more to it than ‘stop being sad’ or ‘cheer up’ so you can imagine how it felt to have to struggle to muster up the energy to exist when you could care less. That lasted for a month and a half.  What I noticed is that while I was secluding myself and retreating into myself more and more I had friends who were checking on me. I don’t think they were fully aware of where I was, but it is nice to know that I’m surrounded by people who love me and are there for me. Even when I don’t immediately see it. What I want to say to those fighting for themselves and their lives that they should keep fighting. I won’t feed you some lie and tell you oh it’ll be easy really soon. I’m pretty sure that it will never get easier. I feel like I fight for my life every day. It’s hard, but it’s worth the fight. It’s hard fighting for your life every day but know that you aren’t alone and that you too, are worth the fight.

I love Doctor Who. I really do. The above is  a quote from the 11th Doctor in reference to Clara Oswald. I chose that line because that is how I feel about life right now. I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m really struggling right now. School and work are kicking my butt and I feel as if I don’t have a real handle on everything. To top it off l  am upset that Peter Capaldi has made the decision to leave Doctor Who. I know that he is not everybody’s favorite, but he’s a brilliant actor and a wonderful Doctor. Moffatt gave him terrible writing. I’m excited for the new companion, but come on now. This is ridiculous.

I’ll dial it back a bit. Let’s go back to the Christmas Special for 2015: The Husbands of River  Song. This was a brilliantly written and acted episode. River and The Doctor meet up yet River doesn’t know this version of The Doctor because he was given extra regenerations and she was unaware. If you haven’t seen it and you’re a fan of Doctor Who and you’ve not seen it yet I highly recommend it  There are some looks that pass between River and 12 that are just simply heartbreaking.  Moving into Peter’s second season  we saw Cara leaving (THANK GOD). The only good thing about Clara and her ridiculous damn existence was her exit. They wrote her exit so beautifully that I actually cried when she left.  I won’t talk about the 2016 Christmas special (WTF MOFFATT). Peter does very well with the trash he’s given. I know that his episodes haven’t been all that great but he’s been exceptional with the garbage they’ve manage to crap onto paper. It will be bittersweet for me when the new series starts. I’m going to miss you Peter Capaldi. I’m not quite ready for you to go.

 

Hello DDBSers! I was thinking about how I wanted this blog to look and what I wanted to write about. If anybody knows me I love almost anything nerd related. Give me Sherlock, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, anything, and I’m happy.  I had a great friend suggest that I blog about what I’m watching. So here’s what i’m going to do. The new series(Season for us Americans) of Sherlock just dropped and I’ll be watching it. You’ll get my stream of consciousness babbling as I watch the episodes. I’ve already watched the first one and I’ll be rewatching it now that I’m over the initial WTF moment I had.

This is a short blog, but stay with us as we continue to grow and bring you more interesting content.

I know it’s been a while since I’ve written and I want to update y’all on my goings on. I finished one school semester and started another and I started a whole new job.I’m looking for  a rent house and life is good.  Anybody who knows me knows that I’m a nerd. I won’t profess to be the world’s biggest, but if a variation of The Doctor showed up at my house I would be able to shout facts and random bits of information at him or her.

I love comic books, i just started reading The Black Panther written by Ta Nehisi Coates. I bought the trade because I wasn’t gonna go to the store every week. I also want to read the new Thor because it’s a girl. Speaking of Thor, Heimdall, aka My Baby Daddy, aka Idris Elba had the complete and utter audacity to post a video offering to make you his Valentine’s Day date. As with everything there is a catch. Idris partnered with Omaze.com and W.E. Can Lead. W.E. Can Lead wants to empower girls to be leaders in their hometowns. There are donation levels and different things you can win for donating. Two of the levels are already sold out and you get 100 entries for $10. I don’t know about y’all but I’m tempted to give him my whole check for a chance to spend some time with Idris. You can get more info and donate to Idris here.

 

Stick with me for random updates and nerd info.  Don’t forget to join us live the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month live at 8pm CST.

I don’t even know where to start with my exitement. Two trailers for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them dropped today. View one of them here. I admittedly wasn’t interested in the movie when I saw the first teaser trailers, but this makes me interested. I was so enthralled and wrapped up in the trailer I forgot my initial disdain.  Academy Award Winner Eddie Redmane (heeyyyy boo) will be teaming up Harry Potter veteran David Yates for the movie.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them releases in theaters November 18, 2016. My birthday is 9 days before, so here’s a cheap gift idea guys.

 

Stay nerdy!

Well hey guys and dolls! I’ve got a ton going on, but I couldn’t let another moment go by without bringing you episode 1 of BaeWatch. Here I’ll be discussing thirst worthy fellas and ladies (a little something for the whole family).

Let’s begin shall we?

You would have to live under a rock or on another planet to have no clue who 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his protests. I won’t go into  all the nitty gritty details at this point, do your own homework. What I will say is that I think Kaep is accomplishing what he sat down to do. People are having more dialogue about police brutality. This has been an interesting thing to watch and it’s spreading like wildfire. Other athletes are taking Kaep’s lead and taking a knee or remaining seated. A highschool athlete who shall remain nameless, half for privacy and half because I forgot his name already, was suspended for taking a knee, and Brandon Marshall of the Denver Bronco’s has lost not just 1 but 2 endorsements. Russell Simmons for the win, becaues he offered Mr. Marshall an endorsement of his own (EAT IT SUCKERS!).

I would like to take a moment to make a teeny tiny suggestion. Any company who is revoking or taking away the endorsements of an athlete who exercises their rights as an american to protest brutality  should be boycotted. Just my opinion, you do what you want.

I didn’t chose Colin as my first Baewatch because he has  a cute face and a banging body, both of these are true, but because he understands and respects the struggle for people of color and also understands what it means to use your fame for something other than getting women, and material possessions. I won’t always  be this responsible with my BW, but Kaepernick definitely deserves it.

 

We see you boo!

 

 

 

Edit: Because I apparently know squat about wordpress this post has been in edit mode since 8/15 and today is 9/14, almost an entire month lady. Say a prayer for me y’all.

 

 

Hi guys! As the newest member of the crew I found myself asking myself what tidbits did I want to share with you all. The answer, everything. I am on a journey to a healthier me, body positivity and self -love ( not of the masturbation variety) are high on the list of things I am passionate about. The biggest part of me at my core is a huge nerd. I love comic book movies, I read several web-comics that I can’t wait to introduce you to.

I can’t promise a weekly update, but I can assure you that there will be all kinds of conversation about anything I get excited about.

Speaking of things that I get excited about, we got a measly 1:24 trailer for the new season of Sherlock (the REAL Sherlock via the BBC and NOT the WB/whatever abomination) last month. I won’t spend too much time waxing poetic about the beauty of Benadict Cumberbatch’s chin, cheeks, and everything. He is seriously beautiful. While show runners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss just might be the devil incarnate and haven’t set a release date yet, Titan Comics just dropped Sherlock Manga on August 9th. I’ll be picking that up so I can stare at Benadict Cumberbatch’s chiseled face in cartoon form. Don’t judge me.

In “tv baby daddy” news, Hotch is leaving Criminal Minds. Due to an altercation between Thomas Gibson, who Plays Aaron Hotchner(Hotch), and a writer on set. Variety says that Gibson was directing and the unnamed writer got into a violent fight that led to Gibson being fired from the show, he’s since hired a lawyer. I’m still reeling from Shemar Moore leaving. I don’t know what to do with myself now. So y’all are just gonna let Derek Morgan walk away from the B.A.U. AND fire my boy. *All the fan girl sighs* I have 2 pieces of eye candy remaining and one coming on board. Heeeyyyy Adam Rodriguez, how you doin boo? If y’all get rid of all my eye candy I’m grabby my girl Penelope and we’re blowing this Popsicle Stand.

I’ll be starting stranger things, and finishing up a bunch of other shows on Netflix and Showtime. Namely Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Shameless. I’ll keep you posted as I go.

If you’ve made it this far you’re the real MVP.
