I like to liken my fandoms to the Chappelle character, Tyrone Biggums. Now I know there is a whole generation who might not know what the Chappelle Show is, and it hurts my heart something fiercely, but I like to believe that Chappelle’s resurfacing in standup has pointed a lot of new fans toward this classic sketch comedy show. I refuse to believe that there … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 4- …and What Does It Mean
From a pop culture emotional standpoint, I’m pretty drained. It’s been a hell of a year and I’m not entirely sure what else I have to give. I’m spent. I’ve shed my tears… a lot of them. I focused so much of my emotions during the first half of the year on Avengers Endgame that I wonder what else I possibly have to give. There have … Continue reading On the Road With El Camino- A Person of Interest
I’m slipping in my old age Geeklings. I did an entire Week In Geek the other day and failed to mention the fact that Emmy nominations were coming out this week. Mostly because… I had forgotten. I always know that Emmy nominations happen during the summer but I also always forget when in the summer. This happens every year and this year was no different. I not only failed … Continue reading I Am Geek 2019 Emmy Nomination Reactions

Just because you’re told a character has died or are left for dead or any type of death is alluded to, it means zero until you see that character dead for … Continue reading Stranger Things- What If Doctor Brenner Is Alive?
I do a lot of reading. If you’ve been a fan of the site for a while this shouldn’t come as much as a surprise for you. I feel like I’m frequently here talking about what books I’m reading, have read, or thinking about reading and relaying them to my Good Reads account which I might have a slight obsession with. Seriously, life before Good … Continue reading An Ambitious Reading Journey… and Its Crushing Weight
However just or unjust it may be, television shows are often times judged for their final episodes. From a storytelling standpoint you’ve already drawn everyone in, you’ve won their trust, you’ve gained their fandom/love now all you’re left to do is stick the landing. No pressure, right? We live in a world of nearly impossible expectations that social media often makes impossible to achieve. Yet, … Continue reading Game of Thrones “The Iron Throne” Review- Now Our Watch Has Ended
They say that every time a Targaryen is born the gods flip a coin and the realm holds its breath. After eight seasons Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains, and the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea finally saw her coin land… and the gods chose madness. What followed was everything that Jamie Lannister prevented when he killed the … Continue reading Game of Thrones “The Last War” Review- Let It Be Fear
