There are very few things as exciting as new book day. The anticipation of a new story, or a continued story, and the giddiness that follows turning to that first page. The feel of the words in your hand just waiting to dance through your brain. The promise of adventure and the ability to fall in love with characters and the story they live in. … Continue reading Bookmarks or Folded Pages?
I’ve been quarantined or social distancing for close to four months at this point. Four. Months. That’s crazy. In four months, I’ve played a lot of Animal Crossing, I’ve binged a lot of television, we’re talking amounts that would be alarming to others, and I’ve read a number of books and graphic novels. In those four months, as previously discussed, I have not gone to … Continue reading I Am Geek MCU Movie Rankings (Updated)
I miss going to the movies. That’s it. That’s the whole concept. I know, in the grand scheme of everything that is happening in the world right now this is small potatoes. Especially when one can watch a movie from the comfort of their couch or leather lazy boy chair that causes them to sweat for no reason at all during the summer because leather … Continue reading I Miss Going To The Movies: A Love Letter To Popcorn
I just wrote the header of this column and I’m cracking up. It feels like one of those exploitative television shows where they’re always catching someone doing something shady. They always target your next-door neighbor or the local food pantry or that one bench in town everyone likes to sit on. You know, to create panic and decent within the community. A show that’s probably … Continue reading The Lord of the Rings Meme Facebook Doesn’t Want You To See
Geeklings, I wanted to write a legit column for you on this fine Monday. There’s nothing better than kicking off the week with some solid content to get the ball rolling. It’s like that iced cold beverage after working all day. That beverage may contain alcohol if you want, or it just may just be as cold as your felled enemies. That’s not the point. … Continue reading How The Last of Us Part 2 Prevented This Column
It’s easy to take a show like The Office literally. This is supposed to be a documentary of the lives of the employees of a struggling paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The entire purpose of the show is to make it feel like it’s not a television show but rather a bird’s eye view to the lives of these people. We’re not supposed to think … Continue reading The Office- Have You Noticed Jim’s Sleeves & Other Fun Facts
San Diego Comic-Con has always been a bucket list item for yours truly. Kind of like the Mecca of Geekdom for me. A great pilgrimage where I would travel across the country in an attempt to make it into the fabled Hall H so I can geek out with thousands of friends I’ve never met. Geeklings, this is the dream and I like to believe … Continue reading The Year We Comic-Con From Home
I woke up this morning feeling kind of “blegh”. It’s easy to blame that as a case of the Mondays, I would go so far as to argue that most of us feel “blegh” when waking up Monday morning. The weekend has just ended. You’ve got a whole work week ahead of you. Maybe you spent two hours of your life watching Six Underground on Netflix … Continue reading Week In Geek- Last of Us 2 (Finally!), A New Star Wars Video Game, & Mmmm Bacon… Kevin Bacon
As a casual video game player, I was willing to wait out the Playstation 5 for a little bit. Kind like the super popular girl in high school waits out invitations to the prom. She’ll listen to all of them but she’s really waiting for that one specific invite to say yes to while also providing false hope into those who clearly do not stand … Continue reading Sooooo, Looks Like I Need A PS5
I can’t imagine it’s easy to launch a new streaming network especially in a world that is more or less overflowing with them. If you have a particular interest, I’m pretty sure there’s a streaming network for you. Like to watch meerkats stand up and look at things? Then you’ll love Meerkats Plus! Not a real streaming service but lord how I wish it was. … Continue reading HBO Max Is Kind of A Mess, Huh?
