Beam us up Mr. Roddenberry

  In the late ’70’s, sunday mornings meant Dad cooked breakfast (ham and cheese omelets, fried potatoes, and either sausage or bacon, mmmmm so good). It also meant that until Mom woke up we had to sit in front of the tv and watch what he wanted; Star Trek: The Original Series. I didn’t like it then, but who knew it would take on a life of its own; a…

With the movie properly under way, the opening credits roll and we see the very beginnings of the Minions…

An LGBT Geek At Phoenix Comicon

So in my previous post, as we remember, I was going to my first Geek LGBT panels at Phoenix Comicon 2015 armed with pen and paper, (yes I really am that ‘old’).  I was going to take notes like it was finals week and I hadn’t studied all semester.  This article about the LGBT Geek community was going to rock!
