THERE’S always been a big part of me wanting the drift back in time. The Nostalgic Geekiness inside was dying to put pen to paper in order to jog memories. The desire could not be contained, and in October 2015, Nostalgic Geeks came into being with the sole objective of bringing back memories from yester-years.
