I’m ShezCrafti, the titular gamer/geek girl who doesn’t get out much (I just like using the word “titular” because it makes me feel like I’m getting away with saying something pervy.)
As a general rule, if it’s geeky, unpopular, or out of style, I’m probably into it. My world revolves around things like video games (mostly retro or indie), science fiction & fantasy books, comics, movies (especially horror, cult & b-movies), TV shows, board games, and whatever else I’m obsessing over at any given moment. This blog is an eclectic combination of gaming, geeky interests, pop culture (mostly 80s & 90s), and obscure things nobody seems to care about but me.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why the name “ShezCrafti”?
I’ve actually had this handle since 1998. It’s a relic from the golden days of AOHell, back when I was a junior in high school going through my rather serious Beastie Boys phase (R.I.P. MCA). ”ShesCrafty” was taken, so this alternate spelling has been my screen name, email address, and gamer tag, etc. ever since.
Who are you really?
My real name is Jaime and I’m a 30-something from the Baltimore, Maryland area. Like most things that are awesome, I was made in the 1980′s.
What do you do for a living?
Digital marketing is my day job, but I also do freelance web development and graphic design. Between my two jobs and keeping up with this blog, I pretty much live on the Internet.
Why do you spell your name “Jaime” vs. “Jamie” like most Jamies in the world?
I was named after Jaime Sommers, The Bionic Woman. True story. My mom was a huge fan and evidently watched a lot of it while pregnant with me. But these days it’s cooler to tell people I spell it like Jaime Lannister.
Do you have any super powers?
Yes. Unfortunately, none of them are terribly useful.
Why don’t you get out much?
I’d like to be able to blame it on work, but the truth is, I’m something of an introvert. I much prefer quiet nights in with my cat, gaming, blogging, or watching old movies. I don’t care if that makes me uncool.
Oh, you have a cat? Please post a picture so I can not give a fuck.
He’s from Catslevania. Get it?
Who is your favorite Ninja Turtle?
Why did you start this blog?
Because I never quite grew up, as I attempted to explain in the first post I ever wrote. I consider it an experiment in nostalgia, as well as a journey of self-discovery.
Do you have a boyfriend?
Is it serious?
This blog is proudly powered by WordPress, Photoshop, insomnia, a Diet Pepsi addiction, boredom, 80s music, stupid tweets, and, occasionally, entire bottles of cheap wine.
