Forbidden Planet – A Must In London

Pop Culture Central of Europe, the best place for any Geek/Nerd to visit while in London, I visit there on every trip I take to London and there is always something different to see or something that really excites me. Movie memorabilia of every kind, Comics, games and anime collectibles that you only see online, every Star Wars & Harry Potter fan would go nuts there. Still I never get tired of it, I could spend hours there, there is always something that I want to purchase but these days I am lacking space so I always choose items that fit or that make me think “MUST HAVE IT”

One section that people forget about is there HUGE comic and graphic novel collection down stairs, I picked up all of the novels by the comedian Kevin Smith, read a few pages and they are pretty funny and he is a funny guy so decided to take all his books. Then there is the Transformers section which have all the stuff dating back to the 80s up to the new things from IDW in 2012. They sold some fake weaponry which looked really cool but I didn’t want to risk taking that on a plane with me. When walking around upstairs I honestly don’t know what to pick up, I tell myself not to go overboard, I never have enough space in my bags but then I don’t reason well with myself and pick up a few things that I end up walking out with a smile, if your wondering what they are its the items in the last picture in this post.

William Shatner – Get A Life

After seeking out his fellow Star Trek commanding officers in The Captains, William Shatner is back with another documentary, this time focused on the fans. From the trailer, William Shatner’s Get a Life! looks like an affectionate examination of Star Trek fandom and why the franchise has meant so much to so many.

For all the Star Trek Fans out there this is a must, I still have to watch Star Trek’s The Captains, just makes me feel good seeing Star Trek. Since Enterprise went offline it was the last Star Trek show since the movie from JJ Abrahsm in 2009, and there is just something that I love about Star Trek. William Shatner plans to explore it in this fun documentary, I love his sense of humor.

Forbidden Planet London

I try and stop by Forbidden Planet any time I’m in London, I think it is on the must visit lists of all geeks. They have every Model, Statue, and Comic that you have in mind. This was just before the Harry Potter movie premiere so everyone was pretty Potter crazy. I was checking out lots of models they have, and so many that I would want to buy. At this point I have a lot of models and movie memorabilia stored up that I shouldn’t buy anything but I bought just one Green Lantern Model which looked really cool. They have a huge Star Wars section, I just couldn’t help staring at the selection they had, I do want a Millennium Falcon but I wouldn’t have any place to put it since its really huge.

They lean more towards Movies, Games, TV, and Comic items then they do anime items as I think the store wouldn’t be big enough. They have a very big first floor showroom and a huge basement filled with every kind of comic you can imagine, they have a very nice transformers section that I spent a good amount of time reading down there. If you like these types of items then its really worth a visit.

The New Dork – Entrepreneur State of Mind

Loved this video, very descriptive of geeks and geek smart. I really think this guy did a fantastic job with the lyrics, I loved it all, I think Jay-Z and Alicia Keys would love this remix. Thanks to Ananyah for posting this up. For those who don’t know Ananyah is back up and running now, she is back to blogging.

The Big Bang Theory

For any person with a sense of nerdiness in them this is the show for you. A couple of hyperintelligent roommates/physicists meet a hot blond who moves in across the hall. Their life revolves around gaming, online life, their work, and no interaction with the outside world what so ever, meeting penny changes things and things are tumbling as they step into an unknown realm. Sarcasm is an understatement of this show, the quality of comedy is refreshing to the usual boy/girl type relationships, you can really relate to the guys and the show is funny from episode to episode. You don’t have to follow any of the episodes, just watch it and enjoy.
