Nobody likes working in silence. There’s nothing worse than coming to work to sit in the office and hear nothing but the phone ringing or the gum-snapping of your co-workers. Hey Lauren, I get it, you can make loud noises with your gum. You better cut it out before I shred the rest of that pack and your access card. Those who have worked in … Continue reading Movie Scores The Ultimate Work Backdrop
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?!
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
There I was mid-morning trying to plan out my writing avenue for the day. What would the topic be? How long would I spend rambling? Is the topic interesting enough to bring in your eyeholes? You know, the usual stuff that tumbles through my head whenever I think about writing anything for the site. For those wondering, yes this happens every. Single. Time. Think of … Continue reading On Your Left- Could Chris Evans Be Returning As Captain America?!
I’ve recently started working in my office again. Gone are the days of sweatpants, bathrobes, and fun pop-culture-themed t-shirts. Gone are the days where I could turn around and open my refrigerator for food, going to the bedroom to say hello to my wife, or pet the head of Hudson the Cat. I am officially integrating back into the “at work” workforce and I’m adjusting. … Continue reading Indiana Jones and The Upcoming Video Game
I always get a little nervous when I put something out in the universe that depends on the involvement of others to get off the ground. When I came to you last week looking to create the first ever I Am Geek Mailbag, I had already written two columns in my head. The first column where there was actual participation and I answered all your … Continue reading I Am Geek Mailbag Vol. 1
I just wrote the header of this column and I’m cracking up. It feels like one of those exploitative television shows where they’re always catching someone doing something shady. They always target your next-door neighbor or the local food pantry or that one bench in town everyone likes to sit on. You know, to create panic and decent within the community. A show that’s probably … Continue reading The Lord of the Rings Meme Facebook Doesn’t Want You To See
San Diego Comic-Con has always been a bucket list item for yours truly. Kind of like the Mecca of Geekdom for me. A great pilgrimage where I would travel across the country in an attempt to make it into the fabled Hall H so I can geek out with thousands of friends I’ve never met. Geeklings, this is the dream and I like to believe … Continue reading The Year We Comic-Con From Home
As if there weren’t enough streaming options already, HBO Max has arrived today throwing its name in the ring of streaming services you should probably subscribe too. I know at this point you probably have subscriptions to Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Shudder, Apple+, Amazon Prime, and any other obscure but slightly necessary streaming network giving you the ability to watch everything. We live in a world … Continue reading HBO Max Is Here
I’m a book snob. I’m not ever going to deny that. Ever. I’m the type of person who sees the trailer or hears the rumors for a project based on a book and then reads the book before the release. It’s my own personal race against the clock. Will I finish before this comes out? Let’s find out! On top of that, I’m most certainly … Continue reading You Season 2 & The Dismissal of My Book Snobbiness
