Dr. Who TARDIS urn photo

“Dr. Who” fans can be an ardent and kooky bunch, even to the grave. So, too, is Kevin “Wash” Pratt, 27, of Arizona, who has been battling an aggressive brain tumor and likely won’t live much longer. In a bizarre yet lovely appeal, his wife and full-time caregiver Tashi King, 25, is asking sci fi-loving crafters on Regretsy.com if anyone can fashion him a TARDIS urn. TARDIS, as “Dr. Who” fans know, is the time machine based on a 1960s-era police box through which the Doctor travels on all his adventures. Keep reading »

Nerdy boy, he’s so slow/ Tuesday we started Foucault / He’s still stuck on the intro / He’s a no-go / Instead I had to kick him out my house / He mispronounced an author (Marcel Proust)

Oh my God, I’m dying. Two of my greatest loves — books and the Jay-Z/Kayne West album Watch The Throne — are now united as one in a supernova of nerdy fabulousness. Performers Annabelle Quezada and La Shea Delaney did their own take on “N*ggas In Paris” that’s an ode to reading — with lots of cameos from New York City bookstores. If you read so hard, libraries trying to find me, you’ll love it, too.
