Showing Doctor Who Some Love

I was a noob to Doctor Who and his exploits until recently.  Although the phenomenon began decades ago, I was never exposed to The Doctor until a couple years back.  Strange for a nerd, right?

I cut my teeth on the 9th Doctor (played by Christopher Eccleston) and his then sidekick, Rose Tyler.  This was the first series of the show’s revival in 2005.  I instantly fell in love with Doctor Who.  The episodes were exciting, fun, humorous, sometimes emotional, and pretty much self-contained.  A new adventure every episode!

Fun story for you.   As a Background Actor/Extra, I’ve gotten to work in productions shot here in Portland, such as GRIMM, Leverage, The Librarians, and Portlandia, for almost a decade so far.  Every once in a while, I also have to opportunity to do a movie shoot.  In early January of this year, a film called Bad Samaritan was being shot at a prison here in Portland.  One of the stars happened to be David Tennent, who portrayed the 10th Doctor in the Doctor Who series.  It was a two day shoot where I played a detective.  Just a fun time that I thought I’d share.

The latest Doctor (Peter Capaldi) hasn’t captured me as much as the 9th and 10th Doctors did.  Not sure exactly why.  Regardless, I’ve been grabbing some Doctor Who goodies here and there to decorate up my apartment and use for my set on my Old Nerd Reviews YouTube channel.  I particularly enjoy my Tardis and 9th Doctor Funko Pops.  I still need to grab a 10th Doctor Pop.  I LOVE these Funko Pop Vinyl things!

I’d like to know who your favorite Doctor is and why.  Also, feel free to share any Doctor Who memories special to you.  Thanks for listening to my ramblings and I’ll see you at Old Nerd Reviews. 😉

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!!

Regards,

REVIEW: Nabisco Peeps Oreos

Hola, gang!

Peeps Oreos has arrived. When I spotted these on the store shelf, I immediately began having daymares (nightmares when you’re wide awake) of Swedish Fish Oreos and Blue Raspberry Twinkies. Needless to say, I fully expected to be terrified at first bite.

I love Oreo cookies and whenever a new variety arrives, I cringe. I’m always so afraid Nabisco will bastardize the cookies and tarnish the reputation once again. I have no clue how Swedish Fish Oreos ever made it past Quality Control. I’ve eaten better at a paint store!

So, sit down with me, grab a glass of cold milk, and watch my taste test and review of the Peeps Oreo:

 

There you go, gang! I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for watching. Please SUBSCRIBE if you haven’t already, stalk me on my social networks, and I hope to see you on Saturday’s LIVE chat, 5 PM, Pacific.

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!

Tomorrow Is NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY! #NationalPancakeDay

I love pancakes and tomorrow just happens to be National Pancake Day.  My favorite would be a big stack of blueberry pancakes, with lots of warm butter and pure maple syrup. #nomnom

What are your favorite pancakes?

National Pancake Day

I did a little research online for you and the only special I could find was from IHOP.  From 7am – 7pm, to celebrate National Pancake Day, they are offering a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes! In return, all they ask is that you make a donation to their charitable partner, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  I’d say that’s a pretty good deal!

If you know of any other place offering specials in celebration of National Pancake Day, leave them in the comments here or hit me up on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/oldnerdreviews and I’ll be happy to add them to this post.

Have a yummy time and I’ll talk to you again soon! 😉

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!!
