Every so often, I have to come to the pages of I Am Geek and make a confession. These confessions don’t come easy. I like to believe that I have consumed a great deal of pop culture in my life maybe even enough for two lifetimes. I’m not here to measure or brag… which is a lie. I’m totally bragging. Even with that mass consumption … Continue reading Dune Trailer- What’s In the Box, Sandworms, & Oscar Isaac’s Tremendous Beard
Reviews are one of those things that are incredibly important while also not mattering at all. I know that’s a weird thing to say considering I take a lot of time out of my life to write reviews on various subjects. In part, my reviews are for me to get my thoughts of something out into the world and to let you know if something … Continue reading Review Bombing- Why Is This A Thing?
No year would be complete without me coming here and gracing your eyeholes with a post about my reading struggles. Now, before we get into the “meat and potatoes” of this column, I do want to preface that I am killing it with my yearly reading challenge. Like Michael Myers style… get it? Because he’s a killer? No? Whatever guys, whatever. Weird horror movie analogies … Continue reading Annual Reading Dilemma
There are days when you want to write. You get that itch. You even have an array of topics that you can cover. Those are the best days. The days where you can almost pull a topic out of a hat and then sit in front of the keyboard for an hour, maybe an hour and a half, and bang out some thoughts on a … Continue reading Difficulties In Writing But Saved By A Trailer
On paper, July 31st should be a bummer. As a kid, it means that summer vacation is now at the halfway point and you’re rapidly rolling down the hill back to school. Usually. It’s been a weird year. As a summer enthusiast, it means you only have a month left of beach days, shorts, flip flops, and Hawaiian shirts. I myself will push flip flops … Continue reading What Would Harry Potter’s 40th Birthday Be Like Today?
I’m starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with me. I could possibly be broken. At the very least malfunctioning. My lovely wife and I wrapped an intense binge-watching of all things Ozark about two weeks ago, maybe longer I don’t fully understand how time works anymore, and since Run the Jewels started blasting during the season three finale… I haven’t binged watched anything since. Granted, we’ve watched alllll of The Floor … Continue reading How Long Should A Binge Hangover Last?
There are very few things as exciting as new book day. The anticipation of a new story, or a continued story, and the giddiness that follows turning to that first page. The feel of the words in your hand just waiting to dance through your brain. The promise of adventure and the ability to fall in love with characters and the story they live in. … Continue reading Bookmarks or Folded Pages?
I’ve been quarantined or social distancing for close to four months at this point. Four. Months. That’s crazy. In four months, I’ve played a lot of Animal Crossing, I’ve binged a lot of television, we’re talking amounts that would be alarming to others, and I’ve read a number of books and graphic novels. In those four months, as previously discussed, I have not gone to … Continue reading I Am Geek MCU Movie Rankings (Updated)
Wednesday has always been a favorite day of the week for us here at I Am Geek. Not only does it symbolize that the current week is halfway done, “hummmmp daaaaaaay”, but it’s also the celebration of the greatest weekly tradition. New. Comic. Book. Day. I live for Wednesday. I Am Geek lives for Wednesday. There is just something so pure about knowing that there … Continue reading New Comic Tuesday?- How DC Is Making Things A Bit Difficult For LCBS
Geeklings, it’s been months since I’ve had the opportunity to say this so please give me a minute to give this moment the grandeur it deserves. HAPPY NEW COMIC BOOK DAY! That’s right, after two looooooong months we finally have new comics to read as Wednesday starts to make sense again. Granted, this isn’t a traditional New Comic Book Day, I’m aware that not all of your local comic … Continue reading New Comics AND The Snyder Cut
