I Want It Wednesday: Life-sized Captains Chair

Boy would I love one of these for my collection, but at around two grand I cannot foresee ever having one. Noting in my Star Trek collection has cost me more than $200. I just can’t bring myself to spend that kind of money on a collectible. (funny though I spent that on my other […]

Name the 50 Aliens on This Shirt

I had so much fun with my friends trying to figure out the 51 Robots on my other Chop Shop t-shirt that I thought I would do the same here with the 50 Aliens shirt. (Both of which are highly recommended by me as being both uber cool and uber geeky.) Here’s what I got […]

Geeks Need Love Too

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Guess what? Even Trekkies are loved. Why not show the world? I am getting everyone I know one of these shirts so they can proudly tell the world “I LUV A TREKKIE”. Why don’t you run and get yourself one too? The I Heart (luv) a Trekkie t-shirt is available at […]

I recently signed up for Twitter after hearing about it for a rather long time from all my techno geek friends. (You’ll see whataslacker’s Tweets over there on the bottom of the right-hand column there.) Basically it is micro blogging at its best. You type a 140-character post, or tweet, and it goes out to […]

Klingon Keyboard for the Diehard Klingon Fan

Perhaps if you dress as a Klingon and speak the language at conventions this gadget might be for you. Then again if you are a hunt and peck typist, like myself, you might not want to go there. But if the Klingon dictionary alone is not good enough for you, you’ll want to get yourself […]

Ricardo Montalban passed away. He died January 14, 2009. As posted over at the Huffington Post, he is often remembered by things like: “Fine Corinthian leather,” Khan and, “Smiles, everyone, smiles.” The “Fine Corinthian leather” dates us all. Perhaps the younger generation better remembers him saying “carne asada” in a Taco Bell commercial a few […]

I Want It Wednesday: A Pen That Writes Anywhere

Remember the Fisher Space pen and how cool it was to be able to write anywhere even upside down? I found another pen that is just as cool, maybe even cooler. (If that’s possible since the Fisher Space pen did do a licensed Star Trek pen back in the day, I have one in my […]

I Want It Wednesday: Peace on the Earth

Just like in Star Trek, a great big happy family on planet earth. I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Happy Kwanzaa, Joyous Noel, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Saturnalia and so forth and so on. To celebrate the holidays I have once again put up my Trekmas Tree. Here are a […]

Dec 212008

I have been scouring the web today looking for techno versions of the star trek theme. Unfortunately for me I already have all the good ones. Everything else can be found on with a poorly slapped together video montage to go along with it and you can’t easily extract the audio out of these […]
