ALWAYS


Fall Geekery is upon us.  I have not had much of a penchant for blogging lately but in October the winds change and the temperature drops and my geek blood runs hot with Halloween fever.  I typically try to fill the month of October with all manner of odd and […]

Well, It is October the first.


I was talking with a friend at lunch today.  We were discussing the various marketing strategies employed by restaurants to attract their assumed target customers.  The topic of older McDonald’s marketing in the form of funny characters came up.  They were supposedly intended to attract children.  Based on McDonald’s position […]

Every year at this time I watch several versions of A Christmas Carol. It is my favorite movie during the holidays. The period in which the story takes place has forever fascinated me.  I especially love the hats. If you are like me the most glaringly obvious sign that a […]

A Christmas Carol …about Hats

Do Geeks Dream of Electric Musicals?

Movie Sequels that WILL Get Made…Maybe


The summer of June, 1993 was a wonderful time for me. Having finished high school the year before this was the first real summer spent knowing I did not have to go back to school if I didn’t want to. I worked almost my entire high school career so working […]
