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
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
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
Geeklings, in eleven- No, not that Eleven. Eleven as in eleven short days we will finally begin our season two journey of The Mandalorian. It feels like a lifetime ago since we saw Moff Gideon get out of his busted TIE fighter using the Dark Saber, but soon Mando, Little Baby Yods, the Dark Saber, and tons of other Star Wars goodness will be apart … Continue reading The Mandalorian- Five Things I Need From Tonight’s Trailer
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
There’s something to be said about the dramatic entrance that just gets the blood pumping. A dramatic entrance so badass that the adrenaline starts coursing through the veins making you believe that you can run through a wall… don’t try this. You can’t. A dramatic entrance so spectacular that you start to consider trying to top it the next time you’re invited out to meet … Continue reading Who Has the Best Dramatic Entrances In The MCU?
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?
