Gamma Dong

Hulk + Porn = Gamma Dong.  I’m just sayin’… Once The Unique Geek Presidential Debate podcast is posted, this will make a little more sense.  Be watching The Unique Geek website for this special event!

Funny Comic Book – Maintenance

To anyone with a sense of humor, I highly recommend the comic “Maintenance“.  This comic revolves around Doug & Manny, two janitors for the world’s biggest and best evil science think tank.  Some of their misadventures include dealing with toxic spills, getting drunk with a talking manshark, accidentally time-traveling back to the Stone Age, and being shrunk so […]

Podcast Appearances

Just a heads-up… I’ve been horribly negligent and haven’t mentioned the podcasts I’ve appeared in recently.  The Unique Geek Issue #69 features the usual gang as we discuss the best and worst fathers in the geek world in honor of Father’s Day.         Views from the Longbox Episode 42 and Episode 43 feature Michael and I […]

“Midnight” Review

A recent episode of Doctor Who entitled “Midnight” struck me as very reminiscent of an old Twilight Zone episode named “The Shelter“.  Both stories took place in a very confined place with a small cast in a dire situation.  As emotions ran high, the concept of human decency came into question.  I love high-energy, high-stress stories like these that tackle […]

New Geek Shirt & A Personal History Lesson

I recently got a new geek-related t-shirt I thought I would share.  This one I picked up from Kohl’s.  I absolutely love the image, especially the bit across the top, “#1 in a Twelve-Issue Limited Series“, just like the comic featured. I wish it wasn’t on dark gray, it makes the colors look muted.  But […]

Upgraded to WordPress 2.5 **Big Whoopty-Do**

So I finally broke down and upgraded to WordPress 2.5.  When I first created the “Once Upon a Geek” blog, the current release was 2.3.  I set up the blog using version 2.3, got it just like I wanted it, and then launched “Once Upon a Geek”.  Something like 15 pico-seconds after I launched my […]

Breakfast of the Gods

I heard about this on THE UNIQUE GEEK list serv, so if you’ve already seen this I apologize.  It’s a webcomic called “Breakfast of the Gods” and it’s hilarious!  There are on the third issue now.  The cast features all your favorite morning cereal characters (i.e. Tony the Tiger, Captain Crunch… etc).  The storytelling is […]

Funny song

Watch the YouTube video below for a really funny Aquaman song by Ookla the Mok.  By the way, that is the coolest name for a band ever!  The video is mostly made up of clips from the failed Aquaman TV show pilot, however, I’m all about the lyrics of the song. If you are unable […]

Kid Who: The Curse of Peladon

Here is another installment of KID WHO! This time we decided to watch the classic episode, “The Curse of Peladon“. “Kid Who” features reviews of Doctor Who episodes from the perspective of a child. These short audio interviews are between myself and my eight-year old step-son. You can play the audio file right here on the Once […]

B-Wing… What the funk?

The name “B-Wing” has always bothered me.  I believe I can safely say that some of you are thinking, “hell ya, that’s always bugged the crap out of me too!”  While another percentage of you are thinking, “what the frig is a B-Wing, and why do I care?” The B-Wing is a spaceship from the movie […]
