Geeklings, I know things have been kind of crazy lately, he said meaning that they’ve been bat shit horror movie apocalypse kind of crazy lately. I know that some of us are working from home, being quarantined due to exposure, dealing with closed schools, trying to figure out if you have enough toilet paper, or what you’re next paycheck is going to look like. I am very aware of how very scary and surreal this all feels. I feel like I’ve seen this movie a million and one times. Granted, most of those movies involved zombies and there are no clear signs that coronavirus leads to zombies (yet), but you get my point. Some of you have probably had the same thoughts.
There are so many new developments occurring every second of every day that it’s becoming a bit overwhelming. Social media is borderline terrifying and you can’t turn the television on without some new report. Sports are gone. Movies are being pushed back. Social distancing is looking to be the biggest two word combo of the year and we’re only three months in. Everything is moving fast. It’s easy to get dizzy and caught up in the hysteria.
I understand that in the grand scheme of things a little site covering pop culture may not matter much, but I would argue sites like this might matter a little more so now. I’m not just saying that to get my clicks up, but feel free to visit the archives, but because escapism is going to be very much needed when you’re knee deep in some The Shining like cabin fever. Which is why I want you to know that I’m working on new content for you guys all week. I’m putting ideas together to cover the lack of March Madness, things to binge/read/play, exciting Netflix arrivals, and a lot more.
I’m going to push out content because I think we need it. Hell, I need it. So that’s where we’re at. I’m sorry it took so long to get this out there. I wrote a column on Thursday when everything went sideways that I didn’t feel right publishing and then my laptop was acting silly. Everything is fixed now and tomorrow starts new content to help pass the time and hopefully entertain in some degree. We’re in this together Geeklings.
Be kind to one another, please don’t buy all the toilet paper and soap as your friends and neighbors need it too to stay corona free, be willing to help each other out, and most of all be safe.
