HOT


  Ah, August, Sextilis how boring you are. Here in Tennessee its pretty damned hot in August and with humidity often reaching 100% for weeks at a time I find myself wondering if there is really anything interesting about the month.  I researched and found that probably the most interesting […]

Sextilis an Unloved Month


toil and trouble
SCENE I. A cavern. In the middle, a boiling cauldron.  Sound of thunder,  Enter the three Witches. ALL Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.      Those of you that are fascinated with the darker side of life will no doubt like me be very interested […]

Double, Double, Boil and Bubble


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 am a geek.  I like Geek culture. I like geek discussions.  I like Geek activities.  There are all kinds of sub groups of geeks.  I belong to several but one geek group I am very proud to be a part of is Movie Geeks. While some geeks might be […]
