Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

My original plan was to drive out to Mesquite this past Sunday to the Fathom Events screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. They were showing it as a fortieth anniversary event. But, I couldn’t find the commbadge or rank pips for my Star Trek: Deep Space Nine uniform. No point driving so far without […]


I’m a big reader, always have been since I was a kid. When it comes to books & movies, I will often read the books that get turned into movies, not always before seeing the movie. And, even though they are getting fewer & farther between, I still read novelizations, too. If ya don’t know, […]

Looking Forward To… Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

Child’s Play (1988), Child’s Play 2 (1990) & Child’s Play 3 (1991)

So, I went to see the Child’s Play reboot when it opened last month. I hadn’t seen any of the original Child’s Play or Chucky movies before, but figured, what the hell, Mark Hamill was doing voicework and Aubrey Plaza was playing the mom, why not see it the same day I was watching The […]

East Texas Pan-Geek, An Introduction

Alright, so, let’s begin. My name is Tom, and I’m a pan-geek. Over a decade ago, a dear friend came up with the idea of pan-geeks – scifi fans that also liked regular science, fantasy, sports, board games, videogames, cosplay & conventions – basically a cross-section of nerdiness that wasn’t confined to just being a […]
