Problem with Nerd Love


Nerd Love = Loving nerdly things, not nerds loving each other. That’s okay.

Loving nerdly things is a self-validating (self-flattering?) exercise: evidence of elevated taste. And I’ve loved the Brothers Quay for a long time, despite their two feature films being…kind of dogs.

Because they are all about the stop-motion animated shorts. And apparently Christopher Nolan agrees, because he’s directed a short documentary about them.

Which will spread their art much further and wider and so a bunch of Normals will get into it and ruin my nerdly love cred. So boo.
