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 July 2011 awards because you are reading this blog. So let’s give away some awards shall we?
Best Day: Whilst the whole holiday in Majorca was brilliant, the best day for me was when I moved into my new house. That house is going to be my home for at least the next two years and hopefully longer and really like my dungeon room, despite the many faults it has. I am very much looking forward to spending a longer amount of time there.
Geeky Exciting Thing: This month I give that award to the return of Torchwood. The new series, Miracle Day, has begun airing recently. It’s very different and many would agree not as good as past series but that doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying it. It’s still epic and lovable with only Jack and Gwen returning.
Movie of the Month (this is the best movie I saw this month, not necessarily the best movie that came out this month): An easy choice this month, it’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I think all the Harry Potter films would have got this accolade if this feature existed for their release and none are more deserving than the finale. An epic battle and the end of an era. It’s so, so, so good.
Song of the Month (again, my fave song during the month, not necessarily one that came out during it): I really haven't listened to much music over the past month which is unusual for me. I am giving this award to Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night, because I’m allowed to do that.
Website of the Month: I’m choosing Google+ for this, simply because it’s the best new social network I’ve seen in a long, long time. In my opinion it’s much, much better than Facebook. I can give you an invite if you comment with your e-mail address of e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Person of the Month: I am giving this to my good friend Josh, despite the fact that I only spent the one weekend with him this month. He made it an excellent weekend. In fact I have been pretty solitary all month so you are lucky that anyone got this award.
Minion of the Month: Wow, you lot have been rather busy over the last month. I’ve had comments flying in all over the place. But I can only choose one and this month I am giving it to Jay who has only recently started reading this blog but has commented loads already. But thanks to all you over people that have been commenting, keep them coming :) (And thanks to Abby Noel for pointing out that links were hard to see, have fixed that now!)
Blog of the Month: There seems little point in having a blog of the month because I only recently wrote a post about some excellent blogs, you today I am going to point you over to my July ‘11 Blogs of Note!
And that’s it for another awards ceremony, thanks for coming.
