Yet another blog unleashed upon an unsuspecting public.

Yet another blog unleashed upon an unsuspecting public.

Well, everyone’s doing it, so I thought I might jump off the bridge as well.  Welcome to Protean Geek, the avenue for me to inflict my various fan-ish thoughts upon the internet at large.  Or rather, since it is somewhat optimistic to believe that anyone would go out of their way to read my thoughts on any subject, a place for me to natter at myself.  If some stray passerby happens to find their way here, I apologize in advance.  A quick Google search will find enough LOLcats to make it aaaaaall better.

Okay now that we’ve got that out of the way, why Protean Geek?  When I decided to hop on this particular bandwagon (years late, I know, but that’s how I do ALL bandwagons) I knew that this needed to be a themed blog.  If I wanted to write about my daily life, I’d still be using my Livejournal.  However, I couldn’t decide on WHAT theme I could carry on indefinitely.  I am the geek jack-of-all trades – I love far too many things for me to be truly and utterly passionate about any one thing.  And so, I decided that I wasn’t going to limit myself.  I’m sure to post a lot of Sherlock Holmes talk, as those books are probably my oldest obsession (LOTRs might be older, but it’s close).  I also go to several anime conventions a year, so I’m sure to talk about those, as well.  Other than that, expect randomness from me, especially of the science, history and art varieties.

However, since I decided a blog needs SOME kind of structure, I’ve decided that every Friday I will post a fan-made music video that I feel deserves the love, as well as a short review explaining why I think it’s awesome.  With the advance of technology, there’s some simply amazing stuff being produced by fans.  That being said, since the required technology has become much more accessible, the ratio of good music videos to bad has risen dramatically.  So I will sift through the crap, so you don’t have to!

So, after much ado about nothing, welcome to my blog.  Enjoy your stay.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, the LOLcats are calling.
