Temporary Interruption of Service

We here at ONCE UPON A GEEK apologize for a temporary interruption of service for the next couple of days. Our primary IT resources (read as MY HOME COMPUTER) are being upgraded in order to serve you better (read as THE COMPUTER CAUGHT A F@%#!#& VIRUS!!!!). Yeah, so I come home from being out of town […]


Best Superhero Movie

Forget DARK KNIGHT… Forget HULK… Forget IRON MAN… This is the superhero movie everyone SHOULD be talking about…. 


Doctor Who Classic Action Figures Finally Ship!

The Doctor Who Classic action figures from Character Options started shipping in mid-August.  Unfortunately, there were severe allocations to most retailers.  Therefore many of us have been stuck waiting for the second wave of figures to ship, even though we pre-ordered.  If you’ve ever ordered action figures before, then you know that subsequent waves (after […]


Chuck Season 2 Premiere – A Review of “Chuck Versus The First Date”

I watched the “Chuck” season two premiere online this week – Chuck Versus The First Date.  It was AWESOME!  (pun intended)  It was well worth the wait we’ve endured since last season. The story was funny, the action was good, and the romantic tension really worked.  Zachary Levi’s comedic talent continues to shine as the lovable, yet […]


Happy Birthday to Me! Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy Birthday to me!  Happy Birthday to me!  Happy Birthday dear Irredeemable Shag… Happy Birthday to me! In truth, this particular blog entry was written on Sunday because today I’m out of town for work.  It’s one of those grueling trips where you start working before dawn (like 6:00am) and finish working after sunset (like […]


Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, The Art & Making of

Over the weekend I bought the book, “The Art and Making of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed“.  As you’ve probably already heard, “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed” is LucasArts latest multimedia event.  While there have been tons of Star Wars products that go beyond the movies, there are rarely items that get the full support […]


“Chuck” is coming back soon! CHUCK!!!

If you know me, then you know I love the TV show “Chuck”.  I didn’t watch much TV last season, but I sure as hell didn’t miss an episode of “Chuck”.  Funny, action-oriented, clever, geeky, and a beautiful Australian blond.  That’s a recipe for awesome. The good news is that the season premiere of “Chuck” […]


They Like Me… They Really Like Me! just posted their “Top 11 Nerd Sites”.  ONCE UPON A GEEK came in at #6!  As my friend Ravenface would say, “Hooray for us!” My thanks to the fantastic folks over at for the nod.  Please stop by their site sometime.  They are a great gaming blog (console, table top, RPG, etc). They […]


Radio-Free America

Somewhere around 2001, I gave up listening to the radio; pretty much I gave up on music at the same time.  Prior to that, I had been a regular listener to the radio.  In my youth, I was a real heavy metal/glam rock snob (only the best or most obscure bands for me, thank you […]


An Army of Slinkies!

These guys are brilliant!  They got famous for their Diet Coke/Mentos experiment, and now they are back with a new project.  Nicely done!  I think this will become the sleeper hit of every office in America!  My thanks to lessthan12parsecs for posting this to THE UNIQUE GEEK. EepyBird’s Sticky Note experiment from Eepybird on Vimeo. […]
