We have decided to have a book club. We will post the book at the beginning of every month and then post our reviews/chatter on it at the end of the month.

Our first book?

Formula E

So yes I am planning on watching Formula E, no I don’t care about what a lot of people are saying about it, for me it is just another racing series and it just so happens to have a lot of drivers I have supported over the years racing in it!

Today we had the first testing session. Results below the cut!

Also below the cut is the dates of the races, for us here in the UK it is being shown on ITV4.

I’m really looking forward to the series, honestly I am! There are some really strong drivers in the field from Bruno Senna and Lucas di Grassi to Sam Bird and Nico Prost. And the ever bearded these days Nick Heidfeld.

The cars look great and the series looks like it will be every bit as competitive as any other series, I am really looking forward to it and it’ll become part of the big F1 dream series. Mainly because it gives my alter ego a chance to go on and on and on about Bruno Senna and Nico Prost forever more!Β 

So who else is going to be keeping up to date with Formula E? Any feelings on the subject?

The Great F1 Dream #8 : Fed Up

*****JUST A REMINDER, THESE BLOGS, THE ONES THAT FALL ON THE FIRST TUESDAY OF THE YEAR, ARE FICTIONAL BLOGS. THEY ARE THE FUNNY SIDE WITH PLOTS AND TWISTS TO FOLLOW THE BLOG ON TRYING TO GET INTO FORMULA ONE. SOME OF THE VIEWS, FEELINGS AND ALL OF THE SCHEMES ETC ARE FICTIONAL AND UNLESS STATED ANYWHERE ELSE ARE ONLY IMPORTANT TO THE STORY OF THE MONTH FOLLOWING THE PRETEND ME!******

After another hard day I sit here and put the race on.

Sitting about watching it reminds me of all the dreams I had. At one point I wanted to be a driver then realized I’d have to actually drive something to be a driver (by that time I was a bit old to get into it,) then I wanted to be a reporter but that didn’t work out, especially after I decided to do History as a A-Level instead of media!

Now I work in a shop…..

FIFA 2014 World Cup : Team Slogans

Every country had one. Some were awesome, some were strange and one or two just made me scratch my head.

In the first of my random blogs (sorry I haven’t been keeping up to date with the games, personal issues meant I only watched one game really this week!) we take a look at my favourite… And not so favourite slogans!

Anime/Manga coming to GeekMind

We’ve teased it a few times with Fairy Tail and One Piece but now we really will be bringing a anime and manga section to the blog.

Anyone that knows my history will know I ran a personal blog that ended up being very much dedicated to anime and manga, unfortunately I have been unable to even watch any anime recently so the blog has come to a stand still. I am still VERY busy with extra hours at work and decorating my house that I really haven’t got the time to do what I was doing on my old blog.

BUT I am still up to date with the Fairy Tail manga (haven’t seen the anime since it returned!) and still trying my hardest to catch up with One Piece!

Forgetting One Piece for a moment because I’m still trying my hardest to catch up with it I will from now on be posting every week at some point around a Friday my thoughts on the latest chapter of Fairy Tail.

I will also try and at the start of every anime season watch the first episode of everything and make one big first impression post and choose one to carry on with on the blog.

If anyone does follow any anime or even if they do full anime seasons and wants to join the team on the blog just get in touch on believeingeekgm@gmail.com .

I will be posting a few blogs in the next week catching people up on what is going on in Fairy Tail right now and also one or two anime’s from last year that I loved (one or two that I need to finish as well!)

It should be going live very soon! So keep an eye on the blog and of course if there is any series you want us Β to talk about or anything you want us to cover then let us know. If we don’t know much about the subject we will binge watch/read it and learn as much as we can before we make replies about it! We love learning about new things.
