On my last day of vacation, I decided to watch Return of the Jedi on Disney+. Normally, I refrain from watching this version of the film because it makes my inner Rancor rage for several reasons that aren’t limited to the concert at Jabba’s palace and ending with the lack of Ewok cartwheels to the tune of “Ewok Celebration”. The thing is, I’m also lazy … Continue reading This Year the Best Star Wars Can Be Found On Your Shelves
Much like Lucy back in the day, it looks like I’ve got some explaining to do. It has been over a week since I Am Geek produced new written content, still pumping out the memes on the Facebook page though, and it’s been a drag for me. The highlight of most days is coming here and writing up some new words for your eyeholes to … Continue reading Let’s Catch Up
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?!
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
I think we could all agree that more Harry Potter should be a good thing, right? On paper, it sounds like an excellent idea. Give us all that Hogwarts magic please and thank you! But over the last few years, there’s been a Death Eater sized shadow that has fallen over this franchise. A great deal of that stems from creator JK Rowling and comments … Continue reading Harry Potter TV Series- Only One Option
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?!
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
Heading into social distancing I was making some real progress on my Good Reads Reading Challenge. Back in the day, I used to write down the books I read in a notebook with a starting date and ending date. I wouldn’t go as far as giving the books a rating, I’m not a crazy person, but I liked to keep track of how many books … Continue reading Reading A Book About The Office During A Community Binge Might Have Been A Mistake
Geeklings, how is everyone out there doing? Man, these quarantine times are trying, huh? Stuck indoors. Not a whole lot of new content or news to get excited about. There’s only so many times you can chase your pet around the apartment before you become winded and bored by the process. There’s only so many times you can throw water balloons out your apartment window … Continue reading Week In Geek- Saul Finale, Hemsworth Extracts, & Evans Defends
With the world more or less on the pause button, I Am Geek has had to shift directions in what we present to you the reader. There hasn’t been a ton of new content to discuss which makes sense considering there’s a virus sweeping the globe preventing us from doing pretty much anything. You know it’s bad when Disney pushes back their film slate completely. … Continue reading I Am Geek Current Quarantine Obsessions
