Bender’s cousin?

I’ve always wondered about the CapMetro logo sewn into the seats on its light-rail cars. It’s supposed to be the Texas capital building but I can’t help wondering if it’s really a bending unit crossed with a Cylon. You know, … Continue reading

RIP Hank Aaron

I was only nuts about baseball for several years as a kid but I’ve always known about Hank Aaron, the guy who beat Babe Ruth’s longstanding home run record. I don’t care if Barry Bonds allegedly holds it, there’s a … Continue reading

Bite my red-hot, glowing puck!

These jerseys came in from Geeky Jerseys last Fall and I forgot to photograph them. Shame on me given how much I love Futurama! The people behind the site were awesome to me on a special request you’ll see below. Firstly, … Continue reading

GWD’s Futurama rematch!

About eight years ago, I, along with the other four members of Kappa Kappa Wong snatched semi-defeat from the jaws of victory at Geeks Who Drink’s first, and what seemed to be only, Futurama-themed quiz. Time heals all wounds but I … Continue reading

Nixon’s head’s favorite candy!

I had to buy this when I spotted it at Terra Toys and gave it to a co-worker who I share an inside joke with, imitating Billy West imitating Tricky Dick. Saying this candy’s name exaggerates the fifth-worst president’s jowly … Continue reading

New Futurama theme for GWD tournament in June

Darth Bender! Drunk Lord of the Sith! I couldn’t resist this mash-up since the artist really did a great job integrating Bender’s distinctive look/shape into Darth Vader’s armor. As for the nerd nitpicking, Bender would only need to hold his … Continue reading

After the table reading, I went out to get the autographs of the cast. Since Futurama‘s characters have all appeared on The Simpsons (“Simpsonarama”), I asked them to sign these shoes to join the great company I already have on them (namely, … Continue reading

Most of Futurama‘s principal cast came to Austin to do a live table read (“The Six Million Dollar Mon”) which in turn was to promote Hulu and SyFy being the new networks to carry the beloved program. They did the read … Continue reading

Nixon’s baaaaaaaack!

I recently acquired someone’s (mostly) complete set of Futurama action figures. This one is a favorite because Billy West’s impression of Tricky Dick has always been hilarious. The writers often went after phrases and words that brought out 37th’s presidents jowly … Continue reading

I’m back baby…oh, and Futurama sort of was

It’s been a long week fixing things around the house, watering plants somewhere else and the usual back-to-school craziness throughout the North American continent. Plus a lot more people whose work I’ve enjoyed passed away but I didn’t feel like … Continue reading

Rick as Bender for Halloween?

Bite my shiny wubba-lubba dub dub bub! Two of animation’s favorite alcoholics mashed up into one funny shirt! Or maybe Bender is really Rick all along since they both have Spanish surnames.

Katey Sagal

Katey dropped by Austin on her way home from New York to promote Grace Notes, a non-linear memoir she wrote. Being a huge Futurama fan, I had to go and get a little face time with the person behind Leela. Plus, my roommate … Continue reading
