• Unboxing the June Lootcrate

    Before FedEX even had time to update the shipping information the Lootcrates arrived with the morning mail. This time around, the receptionist at work insisted on watching as we ripped open…

  • Comic Book Wednesday – June 11

    Even though I haven’t posted my weekly comics round-ups lately, rest assured, I’m still buying them – and, in most cases, reading them. This week I snagged a bunch of cool…

  • Unboxing Adventure Time Mystery Minis

    I had known that there were soon-to-be released Adventure Time Funko Mystery Minis about to hit the shelves, yet I was completely unprepared when I stumbled across them at the comic…

  • Comic Book Wednesday – May 7

    This week was a pretty rad selection of comics. Not much could keep me away from the local comic shop today, not even the rude douchebag working the counter. Rat Queens…

  • Platform 9 3/4 in King’s Cross Station

    Working in London for the week was a rather fun experience, even if the transportation strike screwed up all my travel plans. With the Tube (that’s the ‘subway’ to us Americans)…

  • The Tardis at Earl’s Court Station

    When I first realized that I was being sent to London on business, the first thing I did after booking my travel was to locate the nearest Tardis. Well, the closest…

  • My favorite geeky tourist find in Monterey

    You usually don’t expect to come across anything totally rad like this t-shirt in your average coastal tourist trap. The most I ever find are those gimmicky Marvel and DC tin…

  • Current Comics – Monterey, CA

    First of all, this isn’t so much a review as it is a quick impression while out on one of my geek adventures. Speaking as a tourist, it was nice to…

  • Comic Book Wednesday – April 9

    I was in Las Vegas last week for some work-related stuff, so I didn’t have a chance to hit the comic book shop. Which totally killed me by the way, with…

  • That time I collected Spawn figures…

    Found this shameful polaroid scattered amongst a million other embarrassing photos in a cardboard box that's probably better left closed.…

  • Dr Comics & Mr Games – Oakland, CA

    While out on a family adventure this weekend, I had the chance to visit Dr. Comics & Mr. Games in Oakland, California. Much like the Tardis, and most comic shops, it’s…

  • Unpacking the March Lootcrate

    It’s that time of the month: Lootcrate day! Despite waiting a whole month between boxes, at least some sting has been removed in getting the crates within a day of shipping…

  • Comic Book Wednesday – March 19

    Here’s a quick glimpse at this week’s haul. I’m going to do a shorter rundown this week, as I’m drowning in work. Voice in the Dark #4 – Loving this book…

  • Comic Book Wednesday – March 12

    This week’s trip to the comic show was pretty light on the wallet, but teeming with the quality. Manifest Destiny #5 I picked this one up, along with the reprint of…

  • CHVRCHES – ‘Team’ (Lorde Cover)

    It’s time for another completely rad CHVRCHES cover song! This week (it does seem weekly doesn’t it?) they’re putting some much-needed bleep and bloops in Lorde’s “Team” on BBC Radio 1’s…

  • Preparing to open and entire case of Funkos!

    Here’s my officemate, and fellow geek, Ryan as he readies himself for battle against an entire case of Funko Game of Thrones Mystery Minis. Multiple cameras will be rolling as he…
