When I was younger March 18th was assumed to be National Hangover Day. As a good Irish boy, I love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day; green beer, green bagels, green clothes, “Kiss Me I’m Irish”, the works! And sure, when I was younger I might have overindulged a wee bit which usually resulted in waking up on the 18th with a shamrock painted on my cheek … Continue reading The Snyder Cut- A Reward For Toxic Fandom
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?
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
… to just breathe. Like for a second. I’m not asking you to stop, asking the internet to stop doing things is like standing in front of a tidal wave with your hands out expecting it to crash around you, but just take a breather. Just one. If it leads to two, great! But can we please kind of pause it all for a moment? … Continue reading Is It Possible For Star Wars Fandom…
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… It is a period of civil war. Star Wars fandom, long since divided post The Last Jedi, find themselves at a crossroads.

It seems that all has … Continue reading I Will Literally Die For Baby Yoda
There was a time, only a few short months ago, where I came here pondering if my Star Wars fandom was broken. Like Luke watching the two suns of Tatooine set, I pondered what would come next for me within this fandom. Was I just tired of a franchise that has meant such a great deal to me? Was I even excited for Episode IX … Continue reading Star Wars Episode IX- Taking One Last Look At My Friends
We used to live in a world where trolls only lived under bridges, sometimes turned to stone when badgering hobbits, or had long hair that only grew up into a pointy cone type thing. Those were the trolls I grew up with. I never understood the pointy haired ones, or their weird belly buttons, but I would occasionally steal them from my sister and tickle … Continue reading Troll Notice
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?
In the grand scheme of the things two weeks really isn’t a long time. It’s only fourteen days. Granted two weeks is what it takes for one to understand that the New York Football Giants season is going to be a mess, but as far as waiting goes, it’s not that long. Unless you’re Marvel fan. When Entertainment Weekly dropped our first look at Captain … Continue reading Captain Marvel Trailer Breakdown
When I started I Am Geek near the end of 2015 the foundation of the site came from a quote in Felicia Day’s book, You’re Never Weird On The Internet.
