Geek Chic

Happy Tuesday Family today I wanted to talk about Geek/Nerd Chic. This can really mean what ever you want it to mean. Growing up for me it meant I was the odd ball. I loved Star Wars, Star Trek, Lost in Space, Reading Sci-Fi staying at the library until it closed or until the street lights came on and I would have to hightail it home on my huffy bike. As an adult it is much more the "in thing" To be.

So on Saturday there was this big festival going on in the Pileson neighborhood in Chicago. All of these young people were dressed in festival wear. As we were crossing the street we saw Deadmouse5 & A double light saber. I about done passed out. Oh my gosh hahahahahahahahalololo I walked quickly towards them and had a great conversation. Ya'll know I love to talk. We talked about how they made the costumes and how it was good to be so young and free. I want to encourage that creative spirit within myself and those around us.

We can let outside voices and inside voices weigh our creative spirit down. Anyway. I don't want to get preachy. For my birthday in May I was gifted Star Wars banks which I love then they had Star Wars Night at our local library. So it must have been fate to run into these young men on Saturday.

This is a typical WIW while at work with no customers on a Saturday. I work for a major a University in Evanston/Chicago Illinois. When it's just me this as causal as it gets. Again I wear Jeans And suspenders 5 days a week usually with a button up vest. But, on the weekends I'll put on a graphic T-shirt today's Graphic Tee is deadmau5 and denim Levi high top shoes. Being from Chicago I grew up listening to house music as A kid.
Chicago house generally refers to house music which was produced during the mid-1980s and late-1980s within the term is generally used to refer to the first ever house music productions, which were by Chicago-based artists in the 1980s. With a deep base or drum rhythms usually made with mixing music on records. Every summer in Chicago one of the largest House Music Parties are held Called the Chosen Few Picnic it is really great music and great people and you do so much dancing that it's the best aerobic workout ever.

Joel Thomas Zimmerman, better known by his stage name deadmau5, is a Canadian progressive-house music producer and performer from Toronto, Ontario.

So I am a maximal I thing by now you all know that. Let me know if I post to many pictures. If you think so then I will try to self edit.

As always thank you for reading commenting or just looking at the pictures. But it is more fun to comment.
