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 June 2011 awards because you are reading this blog. So let’s give away some awards shall we?
Best Day: Without a doubt this was the day my first year of uni finished. After getting a wonderful review and having had a great time on placement, I had one last day at uni where everyone was really nice and wished me a good summer, plus I got a first in the group assignment. I felt so happy and just the memory is making me smile right now!
Geeky Exciting Thing: This month it was E3 and more specifically Nintendo’s conference there. This year my games company announced the new Wii U but more excitedly Luigi’s Mansion 2 AND previews for Super Mario and Mario Kart on 3DS. I sat and watched the whole thing live and was literally screaming with excitement at some of the announcements!
Movie of the Month (this is the best movie I saw this month, not necessarily the best movie that came out this month): Having been so busy this month I haven't seen that many films but this award is going to The Hangover which I have finally got round to seeing (behind the times as always). A lot of people seem to rave about this film and whilst I thought it was OK I didn’t think it was anything particularly special. I guess it’s quite American in it’s style and that always puts me off. Still, not a bad watch.
Song of the Month (again, my fave song during the month, not necessarily one that came out during it): This goes to a song called “Leave Me Out of it” by The Feeling, also featuring Sophie Ellis Bextor. It’s not a well known song so here is them performing it live!
Website of the Month: It’s Tumblr again! 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’m going to cheat and give this to everyone on my course and the people who I live with at uni. Between them these people made me a very happy person and not just this month, throughout most of my first year at uni. So thank you everyone.
Minion of the Month: Now here is my chance to moan at you minions? Stop being lazy. I know people continue to read this blog but the amount of comments lately has been pitiful. Get your act together everyone! For that reason, none of you get the award this month. I want to see you lot commenting on every single post and perhaps we will have a winner or maybe several winners next month!
Blog of the Month: This goes to Defenestrated Feet by Ellen. It’s a wonderful blog and you should visit. Ellen wrote the wonderful and well-received guest post that was a guide for geeks and it shows you exactly why you should follow her blog. Off you go people!
And that’s it for another awards ceremony!
Now I shan’t be posting for a few days because I am moving into our new house at uni but we don’t have electricity there yet. I shall record a video tour of the new house and on my return shall blog about how I entertained myself for four days with no electricity. Quite how I shall cope I do not know. I expect to see you Monday!
