Halloween Costume Ideas

Here are some Halloween costume ideas!  All of these costumes could be made by you at home with a little time and effort.  These pictures were taken by me at DragonCon over the past few years.  Some of these pictures have been featured previously here at ONCE UPON A GEEK, but they merit being shown again for Halloween ideas.

“V”… They’re Here to Take Our Sequels

It was only a matter of time until a new “V” series was announced. Last Thursday, Variety reported that ABC is developing a new “V” series written by Scott Peters (4400, Jericho, Burn Notice, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). The new story will feature some of the original concepts, but it sounds like many […]


Batman: The Brave and the Bold Cartoon

The new cartoon “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” is beginning to look like awesome!  Check out this teaser trailer below.  The music has me totally groovin’!  If you can’t see the embedded video, click here.

Shades of Palpatine in the Economic Bailout

Obviously the financial crisis the world is facing is very serious business. However, the geek side of my brain keeps yelling at me every time I read an article on the bailout. For example, click here for an article about the White House considering taking ownership stakes in certain U.S. banks. Here is a snippet […]


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 #76 features the usual gang as we discuss what we were looking forward to at DragonCon 2008 (obviously recorded prior to the event). The Unique Geek Issue #78 features audio recorded while the Unique Geeks […]


Doctor Who RPG Coming Soon

Be on the lookout for a new Doctor Who role-playing game soon from Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.  Best estimate right now is that the game will be released in the first quarter of 2009 (only a few scant months away really).  Cubicle 7 is responsible for games such as SLA Industries, Starblazers Adventures, and Victoriana.

What Is This Neon Blue Meat? The State knows…

Back in 1993, MTV gave 11 recent NYU grads with virtually no entertainment industry experience their own show.  The result was a hilarious sketch comedy show called THE STATE that lasted until 1995.  While it’s been mostly forgotten by the general public, there are still several fans who remember it fondly (including myself).  Sadly the show […]


Guarding the Marvel Universe: Sentry Must Go

I try to be positive and encouraging in my blog, rather than negative and pessimistic.  However, there are a few things that simply bother the heck out of me.  One such thing is the Marvel Comics superhero named “The Sentry“, the golden guardian of good with the power of one million exploding suns.  Goodness gracious, […]
