Welcome to the Geeky Squirrel's home on the web! I have been kicking around the idea of starting a blog for a while now, but until recently I hadn't come up with a good angle. I know too many other fantastic music teachers with music ed blogs who share much better ideas than I could come up with, so that was out. I already write for the awesome blog doing a lot soundtrack reviews, geeky music posts, and various other assorted sci fi and fantasy topics, so there's no need to duplicate that. I am not so egotistical to think that anyone really cares to read about random events in my life, either, so for a while that was that. Until...I had an awesome idea as I was driving down the road one day - a song I was listening to reminded me of something and then something else and then, hey! I can write about that, it would be a short devotional thought-type thing, and - that's it! That would make an interesting blog! So that was about a month or so ago, and now here we are. (There's actually a little more to the story than that, which you can read about on the About page)

Now, I am not the biggest geek in the world, but I'm still pretty geeky and I plan to write about geeky science fictiony and fantasy kinds of things, including but not limited to Doctor Who, Star Wars, J.R.R. Tolkien, and whatever else I happen to be reading or watching at the moment. I'll try to set things up, but I'm not going to go out of my way to explain things that the average watcher/listener/reader of a particular thing would already know. If there is interest/demand for it, however, I am willing to start a glossary or explanation page for terms that fans of a particular thing would know but non-fans wouldn't. Feel free to comment on a post if there's something you don't get, and if it happens often enough I will make another page - the two tabs I've got are looking pretty lonely up there anyway! As I write more, I will probably be adding a page of links to references and things as well, so look for that.

Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to geeking out with you.

  1. Hi Ann, Thanks for commenting on my blog! Best of luck with the job search. Oddly enough, for my day job, I'm an elementary school music teacher.

    Good luck with your blog too. Have you read Bryan Thomas Schmidt? He's a Sci-Fi Author and his books have Christian themes. You might like them.

    Thanks again

    1. Yay elementary music teaching! I remembered hearing you mention that on one of your podcasts. I have not read anything by Bryan Thomas Schmidt - I will add him to my list of authors to check out, thanks for the recommendation.

      Thanks for checking out the blog!
