Well, it would seem like we’re in the post-credit phase of 2020. The year is technically over but now we’re getting a glimpse of the things to, um, look forward to for the upcoming year. 2021 is only seven days old and already we’ve had a riot on the Capital Building, continued spikes in COVID, the Knicks came back from a fifteen point deficit… and … Continue reading Looking For Distractions In the Chaos
I don’t know how many of you watch basketball or watched any of the NBA Playoffs during quarantine, but there was a pretty awesome picture taken of Jimmy Butler after he single-handedly kept the Miami Heat alive in Game Five of the NBA Finals. Dude did everything and it was fun to watch in a world where at the time we needed sports on Tyrone … Continue reading Disney Share Holders Meeting- I Am Geek’s Biggest Take Aways
Last Monday, I sat down in front of my keyboard and started clacking out some words. It felt good. Better than good even which I’m sure constitutes as “great” or any other adjective that exceeds the word “good”. Such a boring word for such a wonderful feeling, but alas, I did not invent language otherwise there would be more weird noises and eyebrow movements. That … Continue reading Ted Lasso- A Very Much Needed Hug After A Rough Week
Well, well, well… look who decided to come back and write some new content. I knoooow it’s been kind of a minute. I think in the last two weeks I’ve written maybe five new columns and re-used two or three because they fit the theme of the day. Looking at that on paper it doesn’t sound so bad but I also expect more from myself. … Continue reading Where’s the New Content?!
There I was last night, sitting in my favorite chair, wrapped up in a blanket because the weather has gotten to that snug with a blanket temp that makes you resist closing the windows. We’ve got alllll the windows open in our place but that might be changing sooner rather than later as the weather continues to dip. Not that you asked for any of … Continue reading WandaVision- The MCU’s Weirdest Adventure Yet
I’m not one to brag buuuuut I’m going to take this moment to brag a little. Just a smidge. Nothing major but I do want to acknowledge that I called my shot. That I stepped into the batter box, knocked the dirt off my cleats, and like Babe Ruth pointed my bat to the stands. And then I delivered! I told you all last week … Continue reading The Mandalorian Season Two Trailer- Where Ever I Go, He Goes
Geeklings, it’s Friday. You have made it through an entire week (again) and are now ready to reap the benefits of the weekend. Is it me or do short weeks feel even longer? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all in favor of three-day weekends buuuuut now I have to cram five days of work into four days and that just leaves me tired. I don’t … Continue reading The Boys- A Very Short Butcher Centric Film
I woke up this morning with the full intention of writing a column about The Walking Dead announcing that it will be ending with a super-sized season eleven. I pretty much wrote my intro while shampooing my hair, how else does one shower, and by the time I was drying off I had a rough shape of the piece and knew how I was going … Continue reading Healing The World With A 50 Year Old Alien In A Bag & Extraordinary Facial Hair
As I was driving into work this morning listening to the Bill Simmons Podcast talk about what quarterbacks would be going where during the offseason it dawned on me, I miss football. I miss the Sunday get-togethers. I miss bitching about how bad the New York Football Giants are. I miss the food, my god the food. But most of all, I missed the fantasy … Continue reading Fantasy Sports Are Cool But How About Fantasy Pop Culture?
There was a time when the commercials during the Super Bowl were as big of a deal as the game itself. That’s not really an exaggeration. Super Bowl Sunday was supposed to have a little something for everyone. Football for the football lovers. A half time show for those who enjoy spectacle. And entertaining commercials for those who are forced to watch the game because … Continue reading Super Bowl Commercials- Are Kind of Lame Now
