Where have I been? Salivating over this…


here’s a question to geeks everywhere….will anything ever compare to BSG? I doubt it….

That rare intersection…


…of architectural geekiness and film geekiness.  If anyone gives me the $2.5 million, I’ll throw a house party to beat all.

The Bret Michaels of Terminator Films


You know like, “every rose has its thorns” or “man, I didn’t age well but I still look better than Vince Neil.” Kinda like Terminator Salvation feels a lot like the disappointment from Revenge of the Sith and a lot less like Alien Versus Predator. Hey, I’m trying to find somewhere nice to start because […]

More architecture geekery


As a kid, my favorite toy in the world was Legos, or more properly LEGO.  From my very first space set I got for Christmas in 1980 (the Beta 1 Command Base) I was totally hooked, and LEGO dominated my wish lists for birthday and Christmas for years to follow.  In college, my love for […]

Terminate this: Salvation and McSuck


You know, as a card-carrying pinko-commie-hippie-liberal, I’m all for recycling.  Green planet and all that. Which must mean that McG is Al Gore’s BFF, because I will be damned if I can think of a sci-fi movie he DIDN’T rip off in putting together Terminator: Salvation.



I work hard to prove to people that geeks are just folks with different ideas of fun.  I make sure to temper any geekery with the awareness that there are non-geeks around, and include them in conversations.  I try not to use words with more than 3 syllables in every day conversation (unless I’m trying […]

Why Michael Don’t Publish Fiction


I realized late tonight that April was the 5th anniversary of the one short story I ever sold for cash. Frankly, there’s been few stories I’ve sold for even magazine copies, let alone for a real honest to goodness check. Much of my lack of fiction publishing is honestly a straight up lack of trying and […]

Time wasters.


So I’m sitting here at work with nothing to do and probably nothing to do for the rest of the day. It’s got me wondering. What do all of you do to waste time in those down periods at the office? I want to hear about stuff you do at work that sort of looks […]

Set phasers on “closeted”


No, this place will not be all Trek all the time, but on the off chance you’ve not seen this video, I figure it’s as good a way as any to cap the Trek talk.  The music is “Closer” by NIN, so NSFW lyrics.  Keep your headphones handy and enjoy.

Trek the Third: The Search for More Trek


Gaming Together: My Uncle Ken, Cousin Wes, Me, and Dad Okay, I may well be the closest to an actual Trekkie/Trekker on this blog. Like all aspects of my life that involve geekery, this one comes pretty much directly from my father. Let’s be honest, much of what we call preference likely exists as little more than random acts […]
