                      nowgeekthisHello, and welcome to another exciting edition of Now Geek This.  Since I am writing this article on Father’s Day, I thought it would be a nice way to celebrate the holiday, and my father, by telling you a little about the man that influenced the geek in me, my dad.  Though there are many factors, and people, that have helped to shape me into the geek I now am over the years, my father is, without a doubt, the single most important influence on my geek life, as well as many other aspects of my life.  In fact, I have noticed that I am slowly turning into my father as my  years on this planet increase.  Whether that is a good thing, or a bad thing, has yet to be determined.

                            The PDX-Files: All Things Batman ’66

                            thepdxfilesThis week we raise our mugs of ale and salute The Caped Crusader: Batman!  Long before Keaton or Bale donned the cowl, years before Conroy got behind the mic, Adam West was the man behind the mask.  Each of these men brought something unique and wonderful to the character, but I find myself getting more nostalgic as I grow older.  Adam West was my introduction to Batman.  I first watched the show in syndication a few years before Tim Burton would show me another side of the character.  So while I love different aspects of each portrayal, Adam West will always be my favorite.  In this week’s edition of The PDX-Files I would like to take a look at a couple of cool new releases in the world of Batman ’66.
