Geeklings, to the delight of many of you I assume, 2021 is on life support. It’s strapped to the hospital bed and it’s ready to say goodbye before the plug is pulled. My only hope is that the spirit of 2021 doesn’t inhabit the body of 2022 which I can only assume is what happened at the end of 2020. This has been an endless … Continue reading Best of 2021 Part II
There was a more primitive time where television show renewals were based on the amount of viewership said television show received. It was pretty black and white, either people watched the show and we got more of it (yay) or people didn’t watch the show and we had to watch it get brutally executed on a grand stage (boo). I don’t think today’s generation understands … Continue reading Canceled TV Shows- Don’t Do It Mid-Season and Keep Airing The Series… It’s Disrespectful
This morning I woke up thinking back to the 4th of July Weekend 2019. The weather was outstanding. The type of summer day where you’re living in a pool or beach for as long as the sun is out. The drinks were flowing. I decided to dabble with Ryan Reynold’s gin and let me tell you, with some mint and cucumber those things were going … Continue reading Stranger Things- Cryptic Teaser Brings Back…Papa?!
For those of you who complained about the condensed traveling in the later seasons of Game of Thrones, I’m curious to see how you felt about all the travel in the latest episode of Falcon and the Winter Soldier because our characters sure did put some miles on that passport. Do superheroes require passports or do they just show up to the country flash their … Continue reading Did Falcon and the Winter Soldier Open the Door For Latveria?!
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?!
I survived The Red Wedding… twice. I had to read it and then I had to watch it which was all types of worse. There is zero doubt in my mind that George RR Martin made Rob’s wife pregnant in the show so The Red Wedding fully crushed one’s soul. Mission accomplished you bastard! I survived Atrax drowning in the Swamp of Sadness, although I … Continue reading Falcon and the Winter Soldier- Is Marvel About To Kill [REDACTED]
Geeklings, brace yourself for a very generic opening but I honestly can’t think of another way to start this momentous column. The truth of the matter is, it’s best to just be matter of fact, I suppose, and give you a bit of insight on what’s circling around the inside of my head at this moment. Sometimes the best way to be clever is by … Continue reading I Am Geek’s 1000th Column Celebration
As I’m getting older I’m finding that it’s more and more difficult for me to stay up late during the week. There was a time where if I wasn’t up until 11:30 something was wrong. Of course, at the time I was working two jobs and didn’t get home until 9:30 at night. That only gave me like two hours to decompress before I started … Continue reading The Last of Us- HBO Finds Its Ellie & Joel
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
