Hello and welcome to the Into Geek awards, my monthly feature that will essentially highlight my favourite things of the previous month. You’ve been given exclusive access to the Into Geek May 2011 awards because you are reading this blog. So let’s give away some awards shall we?
Best Day: A nice easy choice really because though May has been a fairly good month it has been a dull one so there were only a couple of days to choose from. I am choosing the 21st May, which incidentally was the day that the world was supposed to end. It didn’t which was reason enough to be pleased. But I also got to spend the day with my two bestest buddies who I rarely see these days and we had such a good day!
Geeky Exciting Thing: This goes to Doctor Who again. Not only does series 6 continue to be amazing (what with Neil Gaimon’s “The Doctor’s Wife being a particular highlight) but I ended up going on the Doctor Who locations tour and that was really awesome. I am more obsessed with Doctor Who than ever before, which is saying something.
Movie of the Month (this is the best movie I saw this month, not necessarily the best movie that came out this month): Now this is probably somewhat controversial considering the reviews it got but I am going to say Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. I saw it at the cinema and unless a film is awful that in itself makes it movie of the month. But I really enjoyed it, as much as the previous ones in the series, if not more. And I had the theme tune in my head for ages afterwards.
Song of the Month (again, my fave song during the month, not necessarily one that came out during it): Well seeing as though I bought Lady Gaga’s album as soon as it came out there was always a strong likelihood that I would like one of those songs especially. And I did, The Edge of Glory. It’s really catchy and doesn’t have any of that “ra-ra ga-ga” nonsense in it like some of Gaga’s other songs. Plus it hasn’t been over played yet so I can like it without finding it annoying.
Website of the Month: An easy winner this week. It’s Tumblr, which calls itself a blogging site but that’s not really how I would describe it. I would probably say it’s Twitter with pictures. I’m really enjoying going on there though and there are loads of awesome people and whovians on there. My “blog” can be found here if you would like to follow me.
Person of the Month: I am actually going to give this to my friend Stefan who is in my uni group. As much as I take the mickey out of him, he is still my mate and he’s probably one of the people I’ve spent most time with this month. I’ve not really felt like being that sociable actually. But our group will be split up next year so no more all day breakfast Panini's with Stefan in between lectures. It was fun.
Minion of the Month: I am giving this to one follower who has demonstrated such faith and loyalty this month. When I accidentally wrote “this blog is now over” rather than “this post is now over” ishashime seemed to be very worried. So thank you so much for that and I assure you, this blog will not be finishing any time soon.
Blog of the Month: This goes to “My Little Journey” by SJ, who incidentally was a guest poster this month. She has recently changed URL’s from an old blog and her blogs have always been excellent so I wanted to tell you all and give her a nice little bit of promo along the way. It truly is an awesome blog.
And that’s this month’s awards done and dusted! You can see all of May’s posts and what they are about on the “Last Month” page! Enjoy!
