Geeklings, I’m not going to lie I’m a little pressed for time tonight. I’ve got somethings to do still and the Giants are going to be kicking off shortly which means, sadly, I’m going to have to skip over the verbal four play a little bit tonight and jump right into the Week In Geek.
1. Harmontown podcast– There is no mistaking the fact that I worship at the Dan Harmon alter of awesome. Come on he gave us Community and Rick and Morty what’s not to love. A bunch of months back I watched his documentary (same name) that followed his life after being fired from Community and I fell in love with this self destructive genius. This morning I finally cracked down and started listening to the Harmontown podcast and it was delightful. I don’t know why I’ve waited this long but it is now going to be a constant part of my life. It was just so delightful. My next goal is to find out when they’re touring again and try and catch a show. That would be the ultimate.
2. Riri Williams– We’ve been hearing for months that Tony Stark would no longer be carrying the mantle of Iron Man post Civil War II (ugggggh just end already) and would be replaced by a young woman named Riri Williams. Well the wait is over Geeklings and Riri makes her debut today as Ironheart. While most of Civil War II has kind of been a mess (including Riri’s brief introduction) I believe the handling of Marvel’s younger heroes has been stellar. Just look at the Champions or Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man (Miles Morales) books for further proof. It seems that the future of Marvel is here and they’re young and hungry and looking for change. There’s always a bit of trepidation when a big named character is replaced by someone else, but have faith Geeklings. The young Marvel movement is in full effect and I for one can’t wait to meet Riri Williams and see what she has to bring to the table.
3. Dave Chappelle– While I have yet to watch the full episode of SNL, I can’t explain how wonderful it was having Dave Chappelle back on our TV screens doing sketch comedy. His opening monologue was perfect and his the Walking Dead spoof with Chappelle Show characters just highlighted how much I’ve missed that show. Hopefully there will be more of Dave on our television in the future.
4. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them– eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!! I’m a little excited about this one. Getting to see the world of Harry Potter expanded while giving us a taste of American wizards while being directed by repeat Harry Potter director David Yates. Yes please!
