Nerd Stuff Listicles on Ranker (Lists #21-23)

It’s time for another Reader’s Digest for the weirdo-nerd articles I’ve been writing for Ranker!

diamond#21 – The 26 Reasons Diamonds are for Suckers

This is probably my all-time favorite. I like it so much; I’ve decided to turn it into a song on my next album. If you read this and still go out and buy a diamond, you’re a moron. I have no idea how anyone should vote on this list, because all 26 entries are equally good reasons to never, ever buy a diamond.

the-best-spawn-action-figures-ever-sculpted-u1#22 – The Best Spawn Action Figures Ever Sculpted

This is some 3D nerd stuff right here. I’m happy to see that the top voted option is one that I own. People sure do like Spawn more than his Rogue’s Gallery, but I’ll always have a spot in my heart for Cygor, the man/gorilla cyborg with a monkey in his chest.

default#23 – Every Time Mystique Impersonates Someone in the X-Men Movies

Wow, this was an emotional ride. For someone as wrapped up in X-Men lore as myself, marathoning the whole XCU was a trip. So much goodness; so much awfulness. Voting is disabled on this list so it can be chronological forever.

Calling All Ears

As you already know (or are already sick of hearing about), I’ve been working on recording my 16-song album since June. For the most part, I play all the… parts and produce and mix and all that stuff. I can be pretty insular and isolationist, which in the smart part of my brain, I know is bad for the baby (the album, I mean).  I’ve done it that way twice and it went “ok,” but I’d like to try something else this time.

row-of-ears

Would anyone be interested in checking out some of the in-progress recordings and giving me some opinions and/or feedback? It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or a layman as long as you have ears (or some other method of hearing music, I’m not picky). I’ve got a contact page!
