Geek Anthems [Sep. 29th, 2010|07:48 am]

It's a good year for the geek anthem. It's only a month or two since I linked to Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury and now we have Geek And Gamer Girls by Team Unicorn.

Nice to that both geek songs are by women, too. It seems the fangirls are doin' it for themselves :)

Have there been any other geek songs this year that I've missed?

Good movies & TV shows for girls? [Sep. 29th, 2010|08:04 am]

Been meaning to ask this question for a few weeks. Can anyone recommend any movies or TV shows with solid and clever female characters? Preferably in the lead role, but solid supporting characters are okay as well if it helps expand the range.

I know it's going to be a couple of years before MaybeZoe sees any of it, and even longer before she comprehends what she's seeing, but getting a list now will give me time to hunt down and buy them.

Prefer genre stuff, but anything that has good characters and storytelling will do. She's already going to have some great female role models in her life, but wouldn't mind having some cool stuff to show her. Plus it can't be bad for Lex, either.

Link - Kids and books [Sep. 29th, 2010|10:38 am]

Three posts in one day, must be the end of the universe or something. Won't be able to post much more, theoretically heading down to Cooma soon for a day, maybe two.

But had to share a link I came across on murasaki_1966's LJ. The article is called Public & Private; Enough Bookshelves by Anna Quindlen. I think a lot of our friends will totally get this.
