Profile: Sarah is a disillusioned college grad who after earning a B.A. in Film Snobbery, took to the interwebz in order to share her passion for all things nerdy. She loves superheroes, science fiction, fairy tales, bike riding, cartoons, cats, and sunny skies. Writing came to her as a way of release for all the stuff in her head as often Sarah finds herself with more useless knowledge than brain to contain it. You can follow her continual dispelling of nonsense on Twitter, @SarahThisIs.

We here at Nerd Bastards are just looking out for you, man. (more…)
