While there are some trying moments, it should be fun too. Geek-A-Bye-Baby gives us geeky families a way to celebrate our geeky fandoms. Everything from Star Wars to Dr. Who. The site started when Beth began to create fun things for her geeky baby. They started with a few items and today they have over 90 items in the store. The items range from burp clothes to bedding and costumes (you know you have to take monthly baby pictures anyway). But they also have products for nursing moms (lactation cookies) and custom made ring slings/mobys.

    Darth Vader throws the Opening Pitch

    My Dad and I were invited to a Los Angeles Dodgers game recently to celebrate the launch of Kinect Star Wars. My dad and I used to go to Dodger games when I was little, it was so much fun being able to share this experience with my dad. Before the game Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers made their way to the Pitchers mound. I caught it on camera below: It had been pouring in Southern California, but the weather was perfect for the game. Well maybe not perfect, it was really cold. But then…Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers came up to our seats! Follow

    ‘Kinect Star Wars’ and themed Xbox 360 both on sale this April

    After a bit of a delay, Kinect Star Wars and the fantastic-looking console bundle designed to go with it both have a release date: April 3, 2012. Kinect Star Wars now features five modes: Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Rancor Rampage, Galactic Dance Off and Duels of Fate. (No, Galactic Dance Off isn’t a typo — that mode features Star Wars-inspired pop tunes. And you battle Darth Vader on the dance floor. Yeaaaaaaah.) Buy the bundle and you get an extra unlockable for that Galactic Dance Off — C-3PO. I bet he’s really good at doing The Robot. Just a guess, though. You can preorder the bundle on Amazon here (and ignore that June release date).   Follow

    Turn yourself into Darth Maul

    I don’t make a very scary Darth Maul do I? Well it’s super easy to see if you do! Explore your inner dark side by visiting and checking out the free Darth Maul Me application. This can also be run on your iPhone. Darth Maul Me takes a picture of you which you can line up to make sure it looks okay and then you select which Darth Maul you would like to be. I did another one where it just made my eyes red and glowing. The Sith power was flowing within me. Check it out because it’s easy to do and fun. You can also easily post to Facebook and let others comment on how evil you look. Unfortunately, I am not very evil as my friends have commented. No smiles allowed for Siths. Follow

    A look at Geek Love

    Last night TLC premiered Geek Love a tv show featuring geeks trying to find love at a comic book convention center. The show occurs at New York Comic Con at a speed dating session. Ryan Glitch, is the founder of Sci-Fi Speed Dating. He helps other geeks looking for love and explains how it’s the best place to find a mate because they understand. I’ve always encouraged my single geek friends to attend conventions to meet people. It makes perfect sense. While I’m geeking out over that cute chocobo plushie, a guy would have the perfect opportunity to come over and chat Final Fantasy with me. It’s an obvious lead in for a conversation. Which is the toughest part in meeting others to date. Glitch says, “Everybody is looking for that special someone. And here are people who happen to be extreme fans. Step into our world for a little
