So here’s what’s going on

All right, Geeklings, here’s what we’ve got going on.

I’m still working to figure out everything on here, and I figure they’ve got some message forums somewhere, so I’m going to dig around those a bit to figure some stuff out.

Here’s my plan for the coming week, this first week in 2010.

There are three shops that immediately spring to mind, and I want to test this site out with those.

First, in no particular order, is Four Color Fantasies in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, which is a great Comic Book Store in the I.E. that really knows their stuff.

Second is a new (to me) Comic Book Store on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena called the Comics Factory which was huge, compared to what I’m used to and had some friendly people staffing it, which is a treat to find in any Comic Book Store.

Finally, back to the Inland Empire for a really nifty Hobby Shop known as Pegasus Hobbies in Montclair, CA.  One of those shops with a RC Car track in the back, but they also have an OUTSTANDING selection of model kits, which I’ll go more into when I talk about them.

Meanwhile, I’ve noticed that somehow I had, like, SIX hits on this page in the last 24 hours. Now, I know it doesn’t pay attention to me when I’m on here, so I’m curious as to who the heck found me?  If you have, please have patience and bookmark me, this WILL be getting better and hopefully will have some good information.  Also, could you please let me know how you found me?

Plus, as always, feel free to follow me on Twitter or drop me an e-mail at the ole’ .com of the gmail. Same name as you see on the blog.  Let me know how you found me, what you would like to see, any geek recommendations you might have, and just letting me know what you think.

So say we all,


Good Afternoon, SoCal Geeks!

Good afternoon, Geeks and Geekettes!

Do we really have Geekettes? Is that really an appropriate term? Oh well, anyway.

Welcome to the bare bones, nothing here but boundless potential site that I’m lovingly referring to as “Geeking in Southern California.”

My name is Tony. I’m a 32-year-old transplant out of Indiana into SoCal that loves Comic Book Shops, Movies, Gaming, Theme Parks, and so on and so on. I love it out here. I’ve lived in Ontario, then Rancho Cucamonga, and now Pasadena. One of my biggest pet peeves about here, or actually ANYWHERE I’ve lived, is the lack of a one-stop resource for things of interest. Hobby Shops, Comic Book Shops, Toy Stores, things like that.  Sure, everyone knows where Disneyland is, or what’s going on with the San Diego Comic Con, but where can I find a model of the Starship Enterprise? Where can I get my pull list going so I don’t miss an issue of The Blackest Night? What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

These, my friends, are pressing geek questions that I hope to eventually answer on here.

Now, I do ask that everyone bear with me. I’m used to building my own stuff, so I have to get used to all WordPress has to offer. My ultimate goal is to have pictures, information, location on Google Maps, everything you need to find the place, including their website if they have one. And I’ll try to have them categorized neatly: Comic Shops, Model Stores, Toy Stores, etc.

I’m also hoping to get help. If you’re in Southern California, and you have a great place you think your fellow geeks will enjoy, let me know!  I should have a contact e-mail on here, somewhere…

Also, feel free to follow me on Twitter! It’ll let you know when I post up something new, and I’ll also be tweeting things that I think might be of interest to my followers.

Wish me luck, and happy geeking!
