Heading into a two-week vacation, one gets certain expectations, Han Solo might have described them as delusions of grandeur. Besides all of the non-working, there are a ton of things one wants to get done for themselves. Whether it’s cleaning the house or seeing friends or maybe reading a book, every vacation comes with a plan and then vacation hits and that plan goes out … Continue reading The Joys of Powering Down
*sigh* … … … … *siiiiiiiiiigggggghhhhh* Oh, hello. Sorry, I’m just feeling a bit bummed. Why you ask? Well, we should be at the very start of con season right about now. Geeks everywhere should be putting the finishing touches on their cosplays, mapping out arenas, finalizing photo ops or signings, finding their most comfortable shoes, and most importantly, getting ready for the best weekend … Continue reading Funko Con Exclusives- A Timeline of Madness
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?!
In a year without comic cons we’ve had to turn our attention to the internet. Even years with cons we turn our attention to the internet but this year more than ever. We can’t go to convention centers because #pandemic so we need to get our fixes somewhere and the internet seems to be the safest place. Well, the safest place not to contract a … Continue reading Does Disney Have An Online “Con” Planned For 2020?
Today kind of feels like that moment near the end of Endgame. All of our heroes have dramatically returned from The Snap, I refuse to call it the Blip, and the most epic superhero showdown ever is taking place on screen. Ant-Man is gigantic and punching space monsters in the face. Cap has Thor’s hammer. And then out of the dust emerges Scarlet Witch and … Continue reading 2020 The Year Without A Comic Con
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
I woke up this morning feeling kind of “blegh”. It’s easy to blame that as a case of the Mondays, I would go so far as to argue that most of us feel “blegh” when waking up Monday morning. The weekend has just ended. You’ve got a whole work week ahead of you. Maybe you spent two hours of your life watching Six Underground on Netflix … Continue reading Week In Geek- Last of Us 2 (Finally!), A New Star Wars Video Game, & Mmmm Bacon… Kevin Bacon
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, welcome to a brand new week of I Am Geek goodness. It’s Monday and I’m feeling fired up. Really looking forward to the week ahead. Maybe, it’s because after almost three weeks I’m starting to finally feel like a normal human being again. Maybe it’s because I’m probably finishing my book, The Whisper Man, tonight. Maybe it’s because the wife and I have got John Oliver and the … Continue reading Week In Geek- Star Wars Project Luminous, I Am Not Okay With This, & Love Is Blind Finale
Geeklings, the holidays are over and we can finally start to get back on track here at I Am Geek. It’s a brand new year with brand new goals and a whole lot of ass to be kicked. We’ve got some big plans for the site moving forward and I’m excited to share them with you as we move ahead with them. The goal has … Continue reading Week In Geek- 1917 Arrives, Stephen King On HBO, & New Mutants
