This is an experimental post. As I just closed my other blog, I’m expanding this into a general nerd blog. While the primary focus will still be on comics, this is a way to share my general nerdy thoughts. At least at first, there will be no general focus, format, or regular release schedule for the Nerd Journal. It might not even last that long. I’m just going to experiment with this for a while and see how it goes. and here’s my first post.
I recently went on vacation with my family in Italy. We spent a day in Venice and being the nerd that I am, I had to find the church/library that was in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
The building’s exterior, located in Venice, is called Church of San Barnaba. In the movie, the church was the library where Indiana found the knight’s tomb. The internal scenes were shot in a studio elsewhere, although I already knew that. The actual church is now used as an art gallery, which costs 8 euros to enter – I didn’t want to pay that, but I still managed to sneak this shot of the ceiling.
Anyway, that’s it for the first Nerd Journal post. I know it was short, but I have a longer one in the works. Next time, Replaying Dragon Age: Origins.
