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 I
Usually, terms like “hangover” are used with negative connotations. “I stupidly had someone dancing on the bar pour tequila in my mouth for a period of time that was not calculated and because of that, I now currently want to die. Ugh, this hangover.” Yes, that is a personal experience and no, we will not explore that further. But not all hangovers are evil hell … Continue reading The Mandalorian Season Two- Thoughts, Exclamations, & Reactions
Take the foundling to the city of Calodon on the forest planet of Corvus. There you will find Ahsoka Tano. Tell her you were sent by Bo-Katan… I was sitting in my chair when Bo-Katan removed her helmet, looked Mando flush in the visor, and uttered Ahsoka Tano’s name. Aloud. In a live-action Star Wars series. My wife, my beautiful/wonderful/amazing wife who is not really … Continue reading The Mandalorian- How Bo-Katan’s Name Drop Changes Everything
After twelve years, seven seasons, a cancellation, lost episodes, and a renewal we were finally given closure to the animated Clone Wars series, something that not too long ago seemed like it would never happen.

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.

It seems that all has … Continue reading I Will Literally Die For Baby Yoda
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?
