Nerding 101: Holiday Gift Guide Pt. 2

Uber Goober-- This documentary about RPG gamers will please any D&D fan. It follows several groups of live action roll players (LARPers) while interviewing different people and religious groups about their feelings on RPG's and LARPers. $20 or less
How to Survive a Lawn Gnome Attack by Chuck Sambuchino-- I read this phenomenal book last night. Move over vampires and werewolves! There is a much bigger threat at hand. The lawn gnome. This book will walk you through what to do if you feel you're under attack. $15 or less

All my Friends are Dead by Avery Monsen and Jory John-- Another fantastic book. If you’re a dinosaur, all of your friends are dead. If you’re a pirate, all of your friends have scurvy. If you’re a tree, all of your friends are end tables. Each page of this laugh-out-loud illustrated humor book showcases the downside of being everything from a clown to a cassette tape to a zombie. Cute and dark all at once, this hilarious children’s book for adults teaches valuable lessons about life while exploring each cartoon character’s unique grievance and wide-eyed predicament. Less than $15

 Trailer Park Boys Seasons 1-2-- This is by far my favorite Canadian TV show. It's filmed documentary style, and follows two guys trying to get their lives together after an 18 month prison stint. Set in a Canadian trailer park, it features a great cast, and hilarious dialogue. It'll set you back about $20.

$h!t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern-- When Justin finds himself laid off, he has to move back in with his parents. Justin has used his Twitter account to keep a record of all of the funnv, ridiculous shit his dad says on a daily basis. This book is a collection of his dad's best quotes. It's the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for dad! Less than $15.
