Nerd Moments

So we've all had those moments where we've stopped and said to ourselves, "Man, I'm a nerd." So i thought it would be fun to share some.

My most recent one would have to from playing FFXII last year. During the Gilgamesh mark hunt, I recognized and named all the swords he uses during both parts of the fight.

I own both Kingdom Hearts soundtracks.

I never thought of owning soundtracks as being "nerdy". I'm a huge fan of orchestra's and own alot of movie/video game soundtracks. Too me that was just appreciating beautiful music rather than nerdy, just because it was composed for a video game doesn't make it just for nerds.

<----- That's my actual hand

That's pretty slick.

True, but this is Kingdom Hearts, not Final Fantasy V. :angel:

I own too many anime and CG soundtracks to list, anyway. Maybe those don't make me nerdy in and of themselves; but they enhance my geekdom.

Have actually watched Mortal Kombat: Annihilation over 100 times.

You should be clinically braindead after watching that movie that many times.

But that reminds me:

--Wrote a 7-page review of MK: Annihilation and an 8-page review of Bloodrayne

--Am currently writing an over 11-page-long review of Street Fighter the Movie and I still have the final 20 horrific minutes left to cover.

-I have listened to the entire first English Sailor Moon Soundtrack 5 times in the last 24 hours (listening to 'My Only Love' from episode 30 right now)

-I have about 20 different AMV ideas running through my head (too bad Movie Maker is more fucked than usual)

-I watch either Kaleido Star or the "GET MOTIVATED!!" scene from AzuManga Diaoh to get motivated for anything

-I read Genshiken and think to myself "Been There"

-I applied to become the host of The ZONE on YTV

-I update people on what stupid music I listen to while I write a list (Rainy Day Man from episode...43 I think)

-I get 95% of the reference from Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series

-I spend every Saturday Night at the Winnipeg Anime Club

-Said Anime Club is my greatest source of social interaction.

-I am in the process of watching ~170 episodes of Sailor Moon for what will probably amount to a 40 minute segment

-I replay a certain scene of the Sailor Moon Dub for its tranwreckish retardedness. Actually fuck it TANGENT TIME!

Real Scene, Serena/Usagi & Mamoru/Darrien get out of a boat and kiss, full frenching here, for about 10 seconds. In the Dub whilst they are kissing they have Darrien and Serena have this exchange while still making out

Darrien: "Serena, have you been eating that sticky caramel bubblegum?"

Serena: "Uh, Why?"

Darrien: "Because I think I may be stuck, that stuff is worse than cement."

Great cover for the ensors, and what makes it worse is later that same episode they have Rini spike everybody's drinks. Date Rape good, kissing bad.

Sorry for going off topic.

-Only other one that springs to mind now is that I am $1500 in debt and am pulling about $300 together to go see ROH in St. Paul

There will be more, now time for Gundam SEED music

Yeah, but did you notice they were all fakes? There was something minor about each sword that was "off," which was supposed to imply that they were all phonies and he didn't know any better. When he wields Cloud's Buster Sword, for instance, there's a huge kanji character painted on the blade that translates to "imitation."

The second battle with him was tough as hell, regardless.
