How to be a nerd without reading the latest weird stuff

A few years ago, when I was living in Portland, Oregon, I got into the habit of reading weird stuff magazines.

Weird stuff was, for me, a genre that was, in its own way, a little bit like a science fiction magazine.

It was full of stories about weird stuff and weird ideas and weird people, and I was drawn to the oddities and the oddball people.

And I got to know the weird stuff people, in general, and it was like I was part of something.

It wasn’t just some guy sitting around on a laptop in his basement.

It felt like it was me in the flesh.

And it was a very unique experience, to be honest.

There was something that made me feel at home in that space.
