“My Sundays off are mostly spent at the local flea market, a few towns over, twenty minutes or so from home-base. Attending so frequently, well, I don’t usually find anything big enough worth sharing here. The vendors rarely change, their wares even less so, but I still go a couple times a month, more out of habit than anything else. This weekend, I was able to deviate from my normal, boring routine, thanks to the semi-annual Rotary Flea Market at the nearby Marshfield Fair Grounds.”
Chris Lockhart takes the Hosting reigns for this episode as we delve into the world of pop culture conspiracies: Did Stanley Kubrick direct the moon landing? Is Willy Wonka a serial killer? Is Ferris Bueller real? This and many more conspiracies discussed on this episode of the ‘Geek Fallout’ podcast! Enjoy!!!
So much has been going on the last week. Plus not having internet for that week didn’t help any haha. But I got a new job and that has been eating up a lot of my time, because we’re starting for the ground up and I’m helping train everyone as well. Aside from that I’m balance my podcasting schedule as well and coming up with new topics for Geek Fallout and Eclectic Mayhem. So I have a feeling somethings might have to change, but I won’t know till next week.
Now we do have a Eclectic Mayhem podcast coming up this weekend and the theme kinda is Robots (here is the post for the NEW Eclectic Mayhem) and anything else we see fit haha. Also have a Geek Fallout podcast coming up on Monday and I think we’ll be going over Stargate some more! As for Nerdy Life Of Mine I haven’t been here for the past week or so, do to lack of internet and time. I do have lots to update on and post. Kinda have a stock pile to go over. But India (my sister) has been posting here and there, keeping things going :).
So the other day in the morning I got this little package in the mail labeled “TrekFan” http://padd.trekfan.org. There I followed Emmett Plant @ on Twitter and join the club on his site. But The pack looked like this:
Inside was a set of 1993 SkyBox Master Series Star Trek trading Cards. Need I say more? A rather cool way to start off the day haha. The cards I got were Reaching Out To Picard, Praxis Explodes, In The Mind Of V’ger, Lieutenant Wolf, and The Bolians… Plus a checklist, because those are important haha.
Anywho! I’ll be posting a new schedule of things to come. I really don’t think NLOM will be affected by the change, but the podcasts times might. Wouldn’t know for sure till next week. Beside it’ll be my and Carly’s 2 year anniversary next week as well. So it might be quite again next week :).

If you’ve never been to the legendary FAO Schwarz store in Manhattan, now is the time. Rising rents are forcing the toy store to close in July.
Toys “R” Us, the store’s owner, said it is looking for a new Manhattan home for the 153-year-old brand, and one source told Bloomberg a new location may open in late 2016. Last week, Crain’s New York reported that FAO Schwarz was considering a move to Times Square.
“The company is committed to the FAO Schwarz brand and growing its legacy,” Toys “R” Us said in a statement. In the meantime, Toys “R” Us will continue to sell FAO-branded toys in its own stores and online.
Sales of toys have been on the upswing—in 2014, $18.08 billion of toys were sold online, 4% more than were sold in 2013, according to market research firm NPD Group—but Manhattan rent rises faster. On Fifth Avenue between 49th…

Fred Savage is now a director, but had played one of the kids in the 1989 film called The Wizard, who travels to California to take part in a Nintendo video game competition. The whole film is practically one huge commercial for Nintendo. Now, after the announcement of Nintendo’s plans for the Nintendo World Championships, Savage has tweeted saying how he wants to go— bringing the plot of The Wizard to life. Who knows, maybe they could get the rest of the main cast of The Wizard to all go!
