A few weeks back I posted my reaction/review to Kate Mulgrew’s NY Times best selling memoir ‘Born With Teeth.’ Last night, the Free Library of Philadelphia hosted a book signing and talk back with Kate to promote the book and give us all a bit of inflection to go along with her words. She read three selected passages from her book before making us all roar with laughter for another 35 minutes of questions.
Welcome back for more random musing’s on Once Upon A Time. This week we learned of Cruella’s relationship with the Author and her backstory, pre-villain. Or not so much pre-villain, since it seems she’s been evil since childhood. Read on for my thoughts on the episode.
Every now and them, we here at It’s All Geek To Me, find some pretty cool things on the interwebs and just have to share. Click below to see what we found today!
Thats right, geeky girls! The preorder date that we previously reported was slightly incorrect. May 21st is the drop date on the new Marvel line by Her Universe and Hot Topic, not the preorder date. Today (yes today!!) is the preorder day! Which look are you most excited about? Us? Well …
Hold on to your butts, geeks! The cult classic film Galaxy Quest is headed to a TV near you! Paramount television is in the process of putting together a television series based on the 1999 DreamWorks film. Say what?!

Eagerly anticipated are the wrong words for how I felt about getting this memoir in my hands. Vibrating with excitement is probably a better way to describe it, although excitement seems too girlish. I first learned of its existence last fall on Facebook, of all places, and marked the preorder date in my phone calendar because I would be damned if I was going to miss it and not have it arrive on my doorstep as soon as possible. Kate Mulgrew is more than an actress, more than the character of Kathryn Janeway to my teenage mind looking for a hero. She is a woman just like all of us and she has lived a life that can not be described in one word or fifty.
This episode finally saw the return of Robin Hood, Maid Marian, adorable little Roland and, shockingly, Zelena. Yes. You read that correctly. Zelena, the Wicked Witch and evil half-sister everyone loves to hate. And how can you not love her when she’s played so delightfully by Rebecca Mader? Read on to see what random thoughts came up during the show…
