Michael Scott once described his greatest weaknesses as being he works too hard, cares too much, and sometimes he can be a bit too invested in his job. It’s a clever thing to say when on a job interview, despite the fact that you aren’t an actual consideration for the position and one of the rare times where Michael says something and it actually works … Continue reading A New Kindle & The Pursuit of Book Covers
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?!
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
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
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
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?
Happy Birthday to you/Happy Birthday to you/Happy BirthdAAAAaaaaaay The Office/Happy Birthday to YooouUUUUUUUuuuu I hope you heard the end of that in Michael Scott’s falsetto that he uses when he sings Happy Birthday to everyone. You can see an example of said falsetto when Michael makes his dramatic return to the office in “Survivor Man” to sing the concluding notes to Creed as he gets … Continue reading The Office Turns Fifteen- Here Are 15 Episodes To Watch To Celebrate
Geeklings, as alluded to on Monday’s Week In Geek, the most wonderful time of the year has arrived. San Diego Comic-Con is here and with it comes an avalanche of pop culture news. Prepare to be crushed under the weight of new trailers, announcements, surprise guests, and so much more. SDCC is the gift that keeps on giving and this weekend’s heat advisory has given me permission to … Continue reading San Diego Comic-Con- Days 1 & 2
Geeklings, I am taking my annual New York Comic Con vacation and I’ve comprised a list of things that I would like to get done before I return to work next Tuesday. I thought I would share that list with you today because I didn’t feel like tackling the heavy subject matter of what will now be tomorrow’s column. Plus it’s fun to write about … Continue reading Vacation Mode
