Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

Wanderings – Catching up

As I’ve already posted, I’m back in the workforce. Very happy to be there, especially after the eight month hiatus. I do miss working on the blog though, and I’m sure you’ve noticed the slower rate of posting. Not intentional, but I’m not making money off of the website, so it gets the back burner. I figured that I would use these “wanderings” to kind of catch up on what is happening in the week ahead and in this particular post, let you know how I use twitter.

Let me start with twitter. I love watching the tweets, but I’m usually on at odd hours. I have no idea when most of you are or aren’t so I thought that I might set up an auto tweeter to send out at certain times of the day, a schedule  for the upcoming days. Kind of like what you would find here. I will also eventually add a page of all the people I follow in twitter so that you can show them some tweet love. If you have any suggestions, please send them my way.

In other news, Thursday night is the simulcast of RiffTrax’ ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’ at local participating theaters.

Friday night is the iMax preview of ‘Avatar’. Some of you may have already seen it at SDCC, but I couldn’t afford that, so I’ve reserved a view for Friday at 7pm. I signed up for alerts, but it would seem that even the e-mail system is slow. I got the Avatar news alert too late to post here and by the time I was able to get to it, only a few tickets were left. I apologize and will be a little more diligent in getting this information to you.

Saturday morning tickets go on sale for ‘Star Wars in Concert’. I’ve got my alarm set for 10am CDT (I think that’s Central Daylight Time). Prices are really not that bad, it’s the parking that’s going to kill. Not sure on the prices, but I’ve heard anywhere between $15 and $40. Heck, get enough people together and split a limo for less than that. May have to do that. Tickets are on sale at Ticketmaster.
