The views and opinions expressed in O'Keefe's Briefs(tm) are not necessarily those of The Management. In fact, they are very likely not even the views and opinions of the writer, the typeface designer, god or the President of the United States. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who shares the extraordinary worldview expressed below, and should you, run. Far and fast. The Management would also like to point out that any references or similarities to any persons living, dead, or undead are entirely coincidental since we all know there are no such things as zombies anyhow.

NeoLog CE2012.07.23

And we’re back with a new entry! This one is actually a secondary definition as the primary, generally known meaning is a genre of music. So, continuing with my meditations on geekiness:

nerdcore - (n.) - Located in the center of the chest cavity slightly below the cockles it is one of the sub-cockles; it tingles when excited. Luckily this excitement is not publicly visible beyond perhaps a slight dilation of the pupils and flushing of the face. (I really don’t want to discuss that other kind and the gym class incident right now.)

e.g. - I just saw a trailer for the new Superman movie and now my nerdcore is tingling; or someone just mentioned polyhedral dice on my facebook timeline; my nerdcore is all hot and bothered at the prospect of a game actually happening soon.


  1. A friend once told me that he very much desired to one day play DnD on one of those tabletop touchscreen computers.

  2. Interesting idea... probably great for maps; goodbye graph paper! It does start to blur the line between video gaming and table top gaming (NTTAWWT). Thanks, Emily. I may think about this more, and write a new blog!
