Hello world!

September 8, 2009

Hi. Welcome to Super Secret Space Base, the generally excellent (hopefully) blog of one @ryanruppe (your humble poster) and one @thetrouseredape. We’re friends in a roundabout, his sister knows my wife kind of way, and though we had met in passing previously, we’ve not met “IRL” since we became “friends” on the “internet”.

Anyway, the goal for this particular reverse-date-ordered group of text files/imgs/whathaveyou is as follows:

General media criticism, with a focus on “*-nerd” type things. Not in a geeky/nerds are cool now kind of way (though not necessarily against that), but in a {film-nerd, tv-nerd, music-nerd, animation-nerd} kind of way, with a goal to help those of you who aren’t nerds in those areas to get a leg up in the *-nerd competition (I contend that such a thing exists).

Key features will likely involve humor in combination with film, television, music, and comic books (see what I mean about not being anti-geek?).

Typical postings will be hopefully less explanatorily verbose (with fewer fake words). The fault for this one can be directed to the late David Foster Wallace via those internet people reading his book at and #infsum.

* the star or asterisk is typically used on computers as a placeholder to represent any text string. Now you know.
