Missed Geekery

When I was growing up, we had two Geekdoms, Star Wars and Star Trek. Doctor Who was on hiatus, so no one was Geeking out to Weeping Angels or Daleks. Comics were loved, but like most Geekdoms, it was never talked about. Now we have so much to Geek about. There is Anime, Manga, Marvel, DC, Lego, video games, Game of Thrones, Dungeons and Dragons, still Star Wars and Star Trek, and the list goes on. It is impossible to cover it all no matter how much you love it all. For me, there are three...

I am not a journal writer. My wife is on and off about her journal. I never thought my history would be interesting enough for my progeny. I did however want my children to know something of their past. When my first son was born I happened to have an old footlocker. For his birth I put in the number one selling book and music CD. I also put in that days local and national newspapers. This was a tradition I carried on every year adding these items. As time went on I also added things from...

We are now well into the oppressive heat of the summer and I see several more weeks of being miserable. Gardens are being cultivated. People are taking fun vacations. Children are playing outside. And, I hate it all. That’s right I said it. I’m a winter person. Give me the snow and cold temperatures. Give me the holidays. Winter is a time I can bundle up without being accused of laziness. I am a fluffy individual therefore I am better built for winter. In the winter I can easily regulate my...

Every Geek has their niche, their one true expertise. Sure a Geek has lots of different interests, but they have their one true love in all of Geekdom. Mine happens to be Anime. I started watching anime before anyone knew it was Anime. When I was a kid there were two amazing shows on television every day after school. The first one was Starblazers. Some of you may know it as Space Battleship Yamato. This was a story about humans racing across the galaxy to find a cure to heal the dying...

I look at Star Wars with great fondness, just like most everyone else in the world. I was seven years old when the first movie came out. Yes, I’m old. We’ve covered this. Shut up. Back then you could go into the first showing of the movie and stay planted until the last showing. I lost track of how many times I saw the Star Wars somewhere after fifty screenings. There has been a lot of contention about the following movies, especially the prequels, the updated versions, and the new movies....

We have all had to endure the chores of cleaning and we have all cleaned at different levels. We’ve wiped everything down with a wet rag, to dawning the hazmat suit to use industrial strength chemicals, or to tossing in a match and starting over. I have used the hazmat suits, when I was in the military. I have never gotten so far as to just torch everything, but I have considered it. At my house I am responsible for all the cleaning and that’s all right. It fits for our family. My wife works...

There has been lots of turmoil in our world over the past several years. It’s wide ranging from world politics all the way down to our daily lives. I do not care what side of what fence you are on, things have been challenging to say the least. But, I am not here to talk about those downers. Instead, I would like to talk about human’s greatest capability; imagination. I believe we are the only creature that can imagine and pretend. I also believe it is times like this when we feel overwhelmed...

It’s been a long week. You’ve worked hard and now you have a couple of days off to yourself. You feel you owe it to yourself to do something for you. Something only someone like you could appreciate. It’s time for a marathon. No, you’re not going to run the New York Marathon. You are not an athlete. You are a geek. A geek’s marathon consists of watching an entire TV series or series of movies in one sitting. Your kind of marathon is not as strenuous as running the New York Marathon, but it...

Star Wars came out when I was seven years old. At the time you could buy one ticket and stay they entire day in the theatre watching each showing. I'm not a good at poet but a few years back I tried my hand at a free form poem about the Star Wars movie and what it meant to me. ESCAPE TO A GALAXY FAR FAR AWAY The silver screen fills my imagination. Three scrolling paragraphs begin the adventure. A farm boy and his mentor, a rogue and his beastly friend set off to rescue a captured...

Geek attire is nothing special. As a matter of fact I do not believe Geeks follow particular fashion trends such as Hipster, or … well … I’m a Geek, so I really do not know what the fashion trends are. Geeks are more likely to wear what they like and what is comfortable to them. The closest Geeks get to fashion of some kind are the logos, pictures, or memes that will appear on their shirts, bags, or other apparel. Now some people will argue that Geeks do try to follow fashions and try to...
