I’ve been blogging under the WildBlueYoshi name for over two years now, but I think it’s time to explain what I’m doing. The internet isn’t exactly swimming in blogs about both “nerdy” and “domestic” pursuits, yet here I am. If you’re confused, that’s okay. I’ve got a bit of a dichotomy thing going on. Lemme ‘splain.
Anyone who becomes acquainted with me for any length of time will quickly find out two things about me: 1) Queen is my most favoritest band ever in the world, and 2) Five Iron Frenzy is a very close second.
I’m sure that the majority of my readers are at least somewhat familiar with Queen, if for no other reason than that the lead singer was a gay man who died of AIDS twenty years ago. Side note – Freddie Mercury was an amazing musician, and deserves to be remembered for more than his sexuality or the illness that killed him.
As for Five Iron, I usually assume that most people I meet haven’t heard of them, but they are super duper awesome. Several of Five Iron’s songs talk about being a big nerd, one of which is Wizard Needs Food, Badly. It’s on their album “The End Is Here.” I’ve included the super cute video for your pleasure.
