For geeks, living in t-shirts and jeans is pretty much a way of life, but once in awhile we have to clean up for a special occasion. Thankfully there are geeky alternatives to formal or business casual wear that allow us to show off our geeky nature in a fashionable way. Read More

Why buy something for $10 when you can spend hundreds on the tools and materials to build it yourself! I’m joking of course because DIY is less about the end product and more about the process and learning required to get there.
Geek Culture is a many faceted thing with the term meaning different things to most geeks. This category highlights some of the movies we feel define us as geeks. Most of these are family friendly, but a couple are targeted at the adult and near-adult geeks among us.
Today we take a peek at our favorite video games of the year. These are the games we’ve reviewed, played, loved, and sometimes hated. The games that spoke to us and pulled us in and kept us engaged for many hours. Most of these titles are suitable for all ages, but there are a couple that you may want to reserve for the older kids or parents. Read More

Maybe it’s the unusually warm fall we’re having here in Texas, or maybe it’s that I’ve been hearing Christmas music in the stores since before Halloween candy went on clearance.

It matters little if the games are made of cards, paper, cardboard, or just imagination. What matters are times spent together as a group and memories formed of those times. We seem to have a difficult time getting together to play games, but when we do we always have fun. Here are a few of the games we’ve all enjoyed playing. Some take tens of minutes, and some take many hours. Whatever your time schedule, there’s sure to be a game in here that you can enjoy with your family and friends.
Books are something that I believe all geeks have in common. Some geeks love the books themselves, the smell of the paper, the feel of the spine, and the sound of a turning page. Others are beholden to the story, characters, and imaginary worlds that lay beyond the pages, regardless if they be ink on paper or pixels on a screen. Read More
