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.

FAHRENHEIT 451 in 35MM at the Texas Theatre

Fahrenheit 451 Movie PosterThe Texas Theatre and D Magazine will be joining together to bring the classic 1966 scifi movie FAHRENHEIT 451 to audiences for one afternoon only. The movie will be shown at 4PM on Sunday, April 14, 2013. The movie is based on the 1951 book by Ray Bradbury with the movie directed by Fran├žois Truffaut and starring Julie Christie and Oskar Werner.

FAHRENHEIT 451 is probably one of my favorite books of all time and I will occasionally re-read it. In fact, I’m probably due for one now. I always liked to think that if we lived in a society where books were burned and there was an underground culture where a person was tasked with memorizing a book, what would I want to memorize?

That’s a good question. If you had to memorize one book, and that was the only book that you could remember and pass on to others, what would it be? I’ll get back to you on what mine is.
