Hello! I’m Crystal, and if the title of this blog wasn’t obvious, I’m a blind nerd. I’ve been into anime, video games, cartoons, and nerdy TV shows ever since I was a kid and my obsession with them has only grown. Recently, I’ve been reading a lot of different blogs that go in depth about being a part of nerd culture, but I’ve never seen any that talk about it from the view of being a blind enjoyer of the media, so I figured, why not be someone who looks at it from that perspective?
There are a lot of visual aspects to the media we watch. But, take that aspect away, and what happens to the story? Do the characters hold up without a ton of fancy visuals keeping the viewer interested? Does a certain show have audio description, and if so does the audio description help in the enjoyment of the media? If it doesn’t have audio description, does it hinder the show at all? These, and a lot of other questions are ones I want to dive into, and pick apart on this blog. I also intend to look at different character tropes, try and figure out why certain shows I like or dislike have that effect on me, and just geek out over different topics in nerd culture, from a different perspective than most are used to. So, if you’re interested in that sort of thing, stick around on the blog!
I’m super excited to get this blog going, and can’t wait to start this journey with you all!
