I woke up this morning with the full intention of writing a column about The Walking Dead announcing that it will be ending with a super-sized season eleven. I pretty much wrote my intro while shampooing my hair, how else does one shower, and by the time I was drying off I had a rough shape of the piece and knew how I was going … Continue reading Healing The World With A 50 Year Old Alien In A Bag & Extraordinary Facial Hair
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
Reviews are one of those things that are incredibly important while also not mattering at all. I know that’s a weird thing to say considering I take a lot of time out of my life to write reviews on various subjects. In part, my reviews are for me to get my thoughts of something out into the world and to let you know if something … Continue reading Review Bombing- Why Is This A Thing?
I always get a little nervous when I put something out in the universe that depends on the involvement of others to get off the ground. When I came to you last week looking to create the first ever I Am Geek Mailbag, I had already written two columns in my head. The first column where there was actual participation and I answered all your … Continue reading I Am Geek Mailbag Vol. 1
After five movies and two books these are the things I know about dinosaur parks… A T-Rex could eat you while you’re in the bathroom Some dinosaurs will sneak into your car, spit in your face causing blindness, make you try and appreciate their neckwear, and then eat you when you don’t compliment them. If you’re in a tree you risk being sneezed on by … Continue reading Would I Actually Visit Jurassic Park?
Geeklings, it’s hot out. The type of hot where when I leave my air-conditioned room, I am instantly filled with regret. Maybe even a little shame. The type of regret that feels like sweat. It’s like walking directly into a wet hot blanket that just wants to hug all of you. Yeah, that’s pretty gross. Oddly enough Hudson the Cat seems to love it. He’s … Continue reading The First Ever I Am Geek Mailbag Is Coming Soon
The problem after finishing a binge is always trying to figure out what to watch next. Do you jump right into something new? Do you take some time off tv shows and wait for the next big thing? Or do you just re-watch the second season of The Umbrella Academy again? And while that would be an easy solution, I think the wife and I … Continue reading A Kurt Russell Beard Appreciation Post
There are days when you want to write. You get that itch. You even have an array of topics that you can cover. Those are the best days. The days where you can almost pull a topic out of a hat and then sit in front of the keyboard for an hour, maybe an hour and a half, and bang out some thoughts on a … Continue reading Difficulties In Writing But Saved By A Trailer
On paper, July 31st should be a bummer. As a kid, it means that summer vacation is now at the halfway point and you’re rapidly rolling down the hill back to school. Usually. It’s been a weird year. As a summer enthusiast, it means you only have a month left of beach days, shorts, flip flops, and Hawaiian shirts. I myself will push flip flops … Continue reading What Would Harry Potter’s 40th Birthday Be Like Today?
No. No, it isn’t. You can have a taco any day you want and it automatically becomes the best day. It’s a fact. Much like the sky is blue, Wednesdays are for comics, and kitten whiskers are super adorable. I just had tacos for dinner and it instantly became the best day. Period. That’s it. That’s the column. Seriously. Some of you might argue that this column … Continue reading Is Tuesday Really The Best Day For Tacos?
