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)
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.

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.
Just stop… please. I’m not sure how much more I can take. Before 2019 I used to believe I was a strong man. An emotional man? Yes, but strong within that emotion. I had resolve. I had strength. A support system. Coping mechanisms. And now… now, I’m just a puddle. An emotionally drained pile of goo that just wants to twirl down the drain so … Continue reading 2019 and the Great Lack of Care of My Emotions
Geeklings, Happy Labor Day! While the calendar says we still have a few weeks left of actual summer, Labor Day tends to say otherwise. It’s time for the kids to head back to school. The weather begins to shift. Football has returned. All surefire signs that the seasons are changing. I will still adhere to my very strick, no jeans until October rule but there’s … Continue reading Week In Geek- A Trip Back To Derry, Titans Return, & The Joker
Two years ago Square Enix dropped a trailer for an Avengers video game that was riddled with mystery. Things looked intense. There was no gameplay. There was no story. This was a promise that the Avengers game we’ve been waiting for was on its way from the company best capable of producing it. Did we want more? Of course, we did! But the hype was … Continue reading Unpopular Opinion- Avengers A-Day
