force awakens

10 years after the end of the Prequel Trilogy, we have a continuation of the Star Wars that we all know and love. But, was it any good?

Anyone who knows anything about me will tell you that I love both Star Trek and Star Wars. When J.J. Abrams was going to be directing Star Wars Episode VII, I automatically feared the worst. What he did with Star Trek hurt, and knowing that he was now in charge of  the other half of my childhood love was enough to almost send me into a panic. He has said in many interviews that he wasn’t a fan of Star Trek and that Star Wars was his first love. But, words are cheap… Would he deliver where George Lucas failed with the prequels? (more…)

Happy Back to the Future Day!

October 21st, 2015 is finally here! We made it to the future, my fellow geeks!

This episode is (almost) all about Back to the Future! Troy, returning guest Dustin Pence, and special guest star Roger Baker gather at Uncommon HQ to geek out about BTTF! And, per Uncommon Geek tradition, we get massively sidetracked!

We will be splitting this geekout into three episodes, because it was 3 hours long, and there are 3 Back to the Future movies (see what we did there?!?!)! And, just a warning, Episode 64 WILL NOT be the direct sequel to this episode. Time sensitive promo stuff going on 😉

Crack open a $50 bottle of Pepsi Perfect, kick up your power lace Nike’s onto your hover board and enjoy below!

Any child who grew up in the 80’s, as I did, remembers Jem and the Holograms. Some say it was meant for the girl audience, but, with action, science fiction, and a pretty decent plot, it encompassed a wide audience for its time. It was produced by the same studios that did G. I. Joe as well as the Gen 1 Transformers. I wouldn’t have called myself a fan, but I watched it when it was on, and enjoyed it as the young geekling I was. (more…)

Photo May 13, 10 00 51 PMHello readers.

The podcast known as “Welcome to Night Vale” is currently on tour. On Wednesday, May 13th, they stopped in Cincinnati Ohio and performed at the Taft theater. I was fortunate enough to purchase tickets so my husband and I could attend. I was afraid that the show would sell out and I would be forced to listen to everyone around me tell tales of how it was a wonderful experience and I would just be sitting there like, “c’mon guys. I could have gone with you and stood outside the theater and pretended to experience the show through some sort of osmosis.” Instead, the show didn’t sell out and I was able to get us tickets. Now, all that is left is sharing the night with all of you and not spoiling anything for those who haven’t had the chance to experience the story yet.

TRON comic cover0001

“Do events transpire for no good reason? Things just go wrong and mishaps wash over you, inevitable as the tide? Or is there a grand destiny? A scheme of things that unfolds according to a master design, created by a vast, unseen being that we can only imagine? If it’s the former, then Kevin Flynn is just in the wrong place at the wrong time. If the latter, then Flynn is just doing what his Creator designed him to do. He’s no different than any other program. In a world divided into users and those who are themselves used… Flynn is about to become both.”

I love TRON! It’s my all time favorite movie! My all time favorite arcade game! My all time favorite story! My all time ultimate geek fantasy! When Blog Monkey Neo gifted me with a trade paperback called TRON – Original Movie Adaption I was ecstatic! I knew I had to do a review! (more…)
