30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 3

Day 3: Gem from Tron: Legacy I’ll be honest. Tron wasn’t one of those things I grew up watching and loving. Back in the 80’s, if my parents didn’t watch it and introduce me to it then I never saw it.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Warning: This post contains spoilers. Star Trek Into Darkness is an amazing follow up to J.J. Abram’s 2009 Star Trek. It has everything you want and expect from something holding the illustrious title of Star Trek. But at the same time… this ain’t your daddy’s Trek. It’s updated and modern in all the right waysContinue reading “Star Trek Into Darkness”

Sure… there’s theContinue reading “Clean watching”
