July 2, 2019 Now, out of context, this might seem like a random date that I just picked out of the ether. Maybe I’m pining for the 4th of July holiday weekend or maybe I’m just wishing the temperature wasn’t in the twenties. Perhaps I just flipped through a 2019 calendar, that I just so happen to have randomly hanging around, and landed on July … Continue reading The Return of the MCU
First off, I’m fully aware that making a Best of 2020 list sounds like an oxymoron. It’s like trying to figure out what was your favorite bone you broke after you tumbled down that hill or choosing which childhood memory was the most traumatic. For me it would concern a tick… and that’s all I’m going to say about that. But here’s the thing, while … Continue reading I Am Geek Best of 2020 Part II
We probably should have seen the writing on the wall back when we learned that The Office would be leaving Netflix at the end of 2020. There’s no way that a year that ends with The Office leaving the streaming network that gave the show a second drink life could possibly be good. And it wasn’t. Pandemic. Quarantine. Awaiting the results of murder hornets. Fires. … Continue reading The Office- How Peacock Plans To Hold The Show Hostage Until You Pay
The pandemic has really put quite the damper of the 2020 Marvel year, hasn’t it? Think about it, we were prime for sooooo much Marvel goodness this year. There was going to be Black Widow kicking off Phase Four and probably giving Nat the sendoff she deserves while introducing what is to come next for the MCU following Thanos and all things Infinity Stone related. … Continue reading Did The MCU Just Find Its Kang the Conqueror?!
Today kind of feels like that moment near the end of Endgame. All of our heroes have dramatically returned from The Snap, I refuse to call it the Blip, and the most epic superhero showdown ever is taking place on screen. Ant-Man is gigantic and punching space monsters in the face. Cap has Thor’s hammer. And then out of the dust emerges Scarlet Witch and … Continue reading 2020 The Year Without A Comic Con
Today should be the eve of San Diego Comic-Con which more or less equants itself to geek Christmas. Over the last few years, I have spent this weekend spending time with family and friends but also kind of ignoring them. I’m present and will throw in a casual chuckle or something to make it appear that I’m paying attention but in reality, I’m glued to … Continue reading None of Those Comic-Con Vibes
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,/and never brought to mind?/Should auld acquaintance be forgot,/and auld lang syne? Geeklings, we did it! We’re here. The end of the year is upon us. As I sit here reflecting on the year that was, I can’t help but think of Jason Mendoza when I say “my year started about a year ago…” Doesn’t’ that kind of perfectly sum up … Continue reading I Am Geek Best of 2019 Part 2 (#5-1)

Geeklings, you would think with the end of the year only two weeks away that things would start to slow down on the pop culture landscape. You know, give us some time to finish some things and prepare for the awesome that is surely coming in 2020. That’s logical thinking and if 2019 has taught us anything it’s that logical thinking needs to get thrown … Continue reading Week In Geek- Star Wars (!!), The Witcher Arrives, & Goodbye Friend w/ Mr. Robot
Geeklings, what is going on?! Hopefully, this Monday finds you indoors and warm as the first real snowy mix is heading my way here on the east coast. That gets a resounding “yuck” from yours truly. I hate snow. I hate it so much. Don’t give me any of that “but it looks so pretty” because that lasts like three seconds before all the muck. Plus, it means it’s cold out and winter is here (no longer coming) and winter is just this loooong, dark, vortex holding us hostage until the sun re-emerges with warmth and spring. But I don’t want to talk about snow. I’m like Anakin Skywalker with sand when it comes to snow. I hate it.
