Do You Nerd?
« on: January 17, 2021, 01:03:45 AM »
While I was cleaning my Renaissance boots today, I was watching youtube videos created by "Do You Nerd".  DYN is a married couple from Mizzou who travel around to different Renfaires, comic cons and more across the Midwest and make videos of many more nerdy things.  The videos are well put together and many of you will recognize some of the fests that they have visited.

What a fun way to get ready for the Ren season this chilly winter.

Liked the videos......makes me lonesome for ren faire
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

I was watching the ones for the Castle in Muskogee; I've been there a few times and was trying to watch for people I know ;)

The OKRF video I saw from them was in 2019.  That year, we were having record flooding in Oklahoma.  I think that kept the crowd down a bit that year.  I'll admit I was looking for myself and friends on that video as well.

There was NO flooding on the festival grounds but people had to drive way out of their way just to get into town.  There was so much water along the Arkansas River then, it floated a WWII submarine that is normally way above the river in Muskogee.

The Batfish; yes, I heard about it. I have a friend who is one of the entertainment guests there, and he was telling me about the flooding. Incredible. What a way for the Batfish to be back in the water  :)

I need to go take the Batfish tour once the mask mandates are over.  I'll just have to ensure I don't go during the summer.  I doubt that they have air-conditioned the inside of that thing.  I walked through a sub and a destroyer escort in Galveston over 20 years ago.  That was pretty neat for a history buff like myself.

One of my Bristol buddies was a "bubblehead" for 20 years. He told me his sub was submerged during the Perfect Storm that was the subject of the book/movie. He said the view through the periscope during that storm was the wildest stuff he'd ever seen.
The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago has a permanent exhibit of a German sub captured in 1944 (the U-505). One of my patrons in my library was one of the sailors who captured it, and when my kids and I went to the exhibit one day, it was very quiet for the museum, and I told the docents that I knew one of the sailors, and they let us take part of the tour for free, since no one else was around. It was extremely tight quarters!
