Every so often, I have to come to the pages of I Am Geek and make a confession. These confessions don’t come easy. I like to believe that I have consumed a great deal of pop culture in my life maybe even enough for two lifetimes. I’m not here to measure or brag… which is a lie. I’m totally bragging. Even with that mass consumption … Continue reading Dune Trailer- What’s In the Box, Sandworms, & Oscar Isaac’s Tremendous Beard
No year would be complete without me coming here and gracing your eyeholes with a post about my reading struggles. Now, before we get into the “meat and potatoes” of this column, I do want to preface that I am killing it with my yearly reading challenge. Like Michael Myers style… get it? Because he’s a killer? No? Whatever guys, whatever. Weird horror movie analogies … Continue reading Annual Reading Dilemma
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?
Heading into social distancing I was making some real progress on my Good Reads Reading Challenge. Back in the day, I used to write down the books I read in a notebook with a starting date and ending date. I wouldn’t go as far as giving the books a rating, I’m not a crazy person, but I liked to keep track of how many books … Continue reading Reading A Book About The Office During A Community Binge Might Have Been A Mistake
Whether you call it social distancing, quarantine, or being an introvert the end result is the same, we’re spending a lot of time indoors away from people lately. It is a massive change of lifestyle for all of us, maybe not the introverts, and it’s making some of us a bit stir crazy. As things out in the world get more and more hectic we’re … Continue reading I Am Geek Quarantine What To Do List- Books
Today’s column is canceled. Which I’m sure must be weird for you considering you’re currently reading a column. Today. On this site. Yet, here I am telling you that today’s column is canceled. It’s a paradox, I know, but that doesn’t stop the fact that today’s column is canceled. In fact, this isn’t even today’s column. Honestly. I’m not messing with you Geeklings. This isn’t … Continue reading “An Absolutely Remarkable Thing” Happened… Book Feelings Canceled This Column
I’m a book snob. I’m not ever going to deny that. Ever. I’m the type of person who sees the trailer or hears the rumors for a project based on a book and then reads the book before the release. It’s my own personal race against the clock. Will I finish before this comes out? Let’s find out! On top of that, I’m most certainly … Continue reading You Season 2 & The Dismissal of My Book Snobbiness
In a career that spans over five decades, Stephen King has been terrifying his readers. He has created some of the most nefarious characters in literature, from the demonic clown of It to the psychotic nurse in Misery. He has been described by many as the “King of Horror”, but to his most loyal readers (Constant Readers) that name is a gross misconception. The Institute, … Continue reading The Institute: Book Review
Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining has been regarded as one of the greatest horror films of all-time. Loosely based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, Kubrick’s vision focused more on the psychological thrills of the story, challenging the viewers to question what they saw was real or illusion. The movie as an adaptation has been vehemently opposed by fans of the book, however, the film on its own is nothing short of a directorial masterpiece.
I’m the type of person when watching a trailer for something that looks especially tasty and I find out that there’s a book/comic attached it means nothing else can happen until I read the source material. I feel like I owe it to the author to consume the story how it was initially created. Sure, this all feeds into my OCD problems, like how my … Continue reading Difficulties In Reading Dated Source Material
