Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day from ONCE UPON A GEEK!


Once Upon a Geek on Twitter

You can now find ONCE UPON A GEEK on Twitter. Clearly I was brainwashed this week by listening to all those presentations about social networking.  If you asked me a week ago, I would have said I thought Twitter was pointless.  After hearing a presentation on how to use Twitter productively, I’m willing to give […]


Once Upon a Geek readers… everybody please say HOWDY!

Dear ONCE UPON A GEEK reader, First, thank you for reading my blog.  I sincerely appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to read what I have to say about our geeky world.  I mean that. Second, while at a conference this week I’ve been hearing lots about social networking and how businesses can create online […]


Retro Doctor Fate T-Shirt

Here is an awesome retro Doctor Fate t-shirt I just got!  I’m a huge Doctor Fate fan, so I was thrilled to find this.  You can order your own from by clicking here. Here is a close-up of the graphic.  The t-shirt color came out gray in the photo, even though it’s actually slate blue as […]


Why My Bookshelf is Cooler than Yours

…unless of course you’ve got these too.  Then you’re in the cool kids club.


Imagination Movers… My Secret Confession

The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?  Hi, my name is the Irredeemable Shag and I’m addicted to a kid’s TV show.  I’m not talking about typical geek-accepted kids shows like, ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ or ‘Clone Wars’.  This is a full-on Disney kid’s show called Imagination Movers.   It’s part of their preschool programming […]


New Classic Doctor Who Action Figures

New action figures for the Doctor Who Classic line have been announced!  These figures are awesome, but sadly they are only going to be available in the United States as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive.  There will be some available for purchase online around the same time, but I expect they will sell out […]


Geek Podcast Recommendations

Here are a few podcast recommendations for geeks everywhere… 2-in-1 SHOWCASE 2-in-1 Showcase episode #103 features Blake and Chase chatting about the king of the seven seas, DC’s Aquaman! The boys talk about the character’s various eras, best stories, how they’d fix him up and make him viable again, and why he gets less respect […]


The Ghost and My Television

My house has a half-deaf ghost that likes watching TV on Saturday mornings.  Weird. Here’s an example… I get up on Saturday morning at 7:00am and the RCA television in the family room is on with the volume at full blast.  This is odd because I was the last one to bed and I made sure the TV was off.  Even […]


New Star Trek Movie Trailer… if it starred Will Ferrell, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Vince Vaughn, and more!

A hilarious trailer for a Star Trek movie I think we’d all enjoy watching!  Just a warning, some of the language might not be safe for work. My thanks to Ron over at THE UNIQUE GEEK for finding this one.
