As I’m currently on the short road to forty, birthday is a little more than two weeks away (!!), college seems like a life time ago. The memories are fond but seem distant which is a part of getting older I suppose. You remember the moments that shaped your life but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t feel like it was an entirely different life … Continue reading The Matrix: Resurrections- What Is the Matrix?!
Seven episodes in, almost at the halfway point if you can believe it, Star Wars: The Bad Batch has given Star Wars fans plenty to digest. Us fans are like Sarlacc Pits in this way, give us a bunch of lore expansion nuggets and we’ll digest them for years. Unless these nuggets are Boba Fett in which case we spit him out so he can … Continue reading The Bad Batch- It’s Time To Learn About Omega
Sometimes you don’t know how badly you wanted something until it randomly shows up in your Twitter timeline. For example, I didn’t know how badly I needed a shark who wears board shorts until I saw King Shark in the Suicide Squad trailer. Now I can’t imagine a world without that guy. We all didn’t know how much we needed a Baby Yoda until that … Continue reading Ghostbusters: Afterlife- I Ain’t Afraid Of No… Mini Stay Puft Marshmallow Men?!
Last night, after a stellar episode of Better Call Saul, I decided not to continue watching the now muted world of professional wrestling but rather continue to read my book. I don’t know, call me weird but it’s difficult to get into Monday Night Raw when there’s no audience. It really amplifies how silly it all is and I’m already highly aware of how silly it all is. … Continue reading What Happens To Lasers When They Miss A Target In Space?
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
Why is it so difficult to write about the new Star Wars films?! In a perfect world, I would come here and start breaking down my thoughts of the movie discussing what worked, what didn’t work, and what has me excited for the future of the franchise. Yet, life within the Star Wars fandom is less than perfect. In fact, the levels of toxicity are … Continue reading Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker- Your Feelings Are the Only Ones That Matter
I was sitting at my desk the other day at work just kind of slowly getting into the day. You know the feeling, the one where you’re being moderately productive but also trying to figure out what memes you’re going to be posting on your sites Facebook page? No, just me? Anyway, I was sitting at my desk and a customer I hadn’t seen in … Continue reading Is My Star Wars Fandom Broken?
Geeklings, a very Happy New Comic Book Day to you all! Oh Wednesday, my dear old friend. Welcome back. I haven’t seen you since last week. What new crop of comics do you bring with you? [ Author’s Note- you start talking to days of the week when you’re not entirely sure how you want to open your column and you hope that by writing … Continue reading Pull List- Fantastic Four & Sandman Return, Darth Vader’s Castle, & More
It’s been awhile since we’ve had a guest poster and after some minor persuasion, I was able to talk my friend Tiffani into sharing something with the site. Our mission statement here at I Am Geek is to embrace our inner geek and not shy away from it. To understand that it’s okay being who you are and loving what you love and Tiffani fit … Continue reading Coming Out of the #fangirl Closet (A Guest Post)
Geeklings, I can’t figure out if I’m having a good reading year or not and that’s bothering me. For one thing, I set my Good Reads goal at 42 because I reached 41 books last year and, as we all know, the meaning of life is 42 which made it seem like a healthy choice. Yet here we are four months in and I can’t … Continue reading 2017 Reading List- April
