I Am Geek The Birthday Gift Request

As I’ve gotten older, I want to believe that my birthday celebrations have gotten a bit tamer… kind of like the progression of Eddie Murphy’s movie choices. Gone are the long weekend celebrations filled with bar jukeboxes and more alcohol than one should decide to consume. Here is the one-day celebration filled with family/friends, good eats, a bitching party theme, and relaxation. I have zero … Continue reading I Am Geek The Birthday Gift Request

This Year the Best Star Wars Can Be Found On Your Shelves

On my last day of vacation, I decided to watch Return of the Jedi on Disney+. Normally, I refrain from watching this version of the film because it makes my inner Rancor rage for several reasons that aren’t limited to the concert at Jabba’s palace and ending with the lack of Ewok cartwheels to the tune of “Ewok Celebration”. The thing is, I’m also lazy … Continue reading This Year the Best Star Wars Can Be Found On Your Shelves

Why the Fear Street Trilogy Deserves Your Attention

As someone who writes quite frequently, it sometimes seems that the act of planning out what to write can be more enjoyable than the act of writing itself. We’ve discussed in the past how in the mornings I like to start planning my writing agenda for the day, which usually gets derailed by a massive trailer dropping or some crazy bonkers news that needs to … Continue reading Why the Fear Street Trilogy Deserves Your Attention

Rick and Morty- The Woes of Being An Older Fan

Waiting can often be the hardest part of anticipation. Often times we get excited about something, say, like the ninth Fast and the Furious movie, and then a pandemic hits and we are unable to live our lives a quarter-mile at a time. This type of waiting can help to further build the anticipation and excitement for something, like Vin Diesel in an array of … Continue reading Rick and Morty- The Woes of Being An Older Fan

When Books Attack- Should I Re-Read Harry Potter?!

Ugh, just when I thought I had a reading plan for the rest of the year the Mrs. and I start watching the Harry Potter movies and I start wondering… should I be re-reading the Harry Potter books? Which becomes an issue for me. Right now, I’m elbows deep in the first First Law trilogy. Fun fact, our good friend Kyle was very much on … Continue reading When Books Attack- Should I Re-Read Harry Potter?!

Why Don’t Books Come With Soundtracks?!

I wish books came with soundtracks. Honestly, I don’t understand how we live in a world where books don’t have soundtracks. Think about it, movies, tv shows, and video games all have soundtracks to accompany the stories they tell. How is it that books haven’t adopted this same philosophy? This seems like something that could further boost sales in the book community, not to mention … Continue reading Why Don’t Books Come With Soundtracks?!

Books- The Ever Expanding To-Read Pile & How I Want To Read Something Else

Finishing a book is usually one of my favorite feelings in the world. It’s right up there with whenever tacos are presented or when Hudson the Cat makes steady eye contact and then slow blinks at me. Finishing a book is a sense of victory and no matter how many books I’ve finished, and there have been a bunch, that feeling never goes away. And … Continue reading Books- The Ever Expanding To-Read Pile & How I Want To Read Something Else

Harry Potter TV Series- Only One Option

I think we could all agree that more Harry Potter should be a good thing, right? On paper, it sounds like an excellent idea. Give us all that Hogwarts magic please and thank you! But over the last few years, there’s been a Death Eater sized shadow that has fallen over this franchise. A great deal of that stems from creator JK Rowling and comments … Continue reading Harry Potter TV Series- Only One Option

I Am Geek Best of 2020 Part I

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
