A Geek Christmas

Ok here's the Nerdapalooza Holiday Haul for this year...

Star Wars Christmas Ornaments Set (10) with some cool unusual characters like Emperor Palpatine, Qui Gon Jinn, Jabba, and a Cone Wars era battle droid.

A Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock Tshirt.  I am already trying to work at getting better at the game now that I own the shirt...and the shirt makes a nice cheat sheet if you forget what Spock beats and what Lizard loses to.

Some more depth and breadth to my Blu-ray collection, including Inception, The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey, Ironman 3, and the coup de grace, Star Wars The Complete Saga.  Good thing my new job is three or four days a week!

Some great drum stuff...a Remo ambassador clear head for the resonant side of my floor tom (the last head to complete the replacement of all my kit heads), a new new sided practice pad, two cool drumming books,  Stick Control and Mel Bay's Drum Fills.

A large Boba Fett plush key chain.

And some great non-geek stuff as well. 

Happy Holidays!

Starcher Trek

Originally started as a bit of a geeky goof between Starcher Trek is a sort of mash-up of Star Trek TOS and the animated adult humor series Archer. Dialogue segments from Archer are then synced up to an animated version of ST:TOS.  It's pretty damn funny and well worth the couple of minutes it takes to watch an episode (I believe there are three episodes as of this post)  
With H. Jon Benjamin as Captain Kirk and Aisha Tyler as Lt. Urhura you really can't go wrong...

Been a little busy...

Yea yea...just another abandoned blog.  Took a new position in late August as a clinical manager with the hospice group that I work for and it turned into a huge time suck for me. But I recently took a new position at Children's Hospital Colorado that has a more nurse-style schedule with great hours, so once the management responsibilities end in a couple of weeks, I hope to revive Flagrant Nerd to it's geeky goodness once again.  So prepare yourself for more on the gifts of geekdom from yours truly, the Duke of Dork.
