As I’ve gotten older, I want to believe that my birthday celebrations have gotten a bit tamer… kind of like the progression of Eddie Murphy’s movie choices. Gone are the long weekend celebrations filled with bar jukeboxes and more alcohol than one should decide to consume. Here is the one-day celebration filled with family/friends, good eats, a bitching party theme, and relaxation. I have zero … Continue reading I Am Geek The Birthday Gift Request
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
You know, whenever I take one of these prolonged breaks from writing there is always the fear that when it comes time to get back in the groove that I’ll have forgotten how to write entirely. Of course, this would imply that I know how to write in the first place and sometimes I think the jury is still out on that. That’s not me … Continue reading My Mind Is Like A Starfish or How I Needed A Vacation
The world was a much different place in 2018. Thanos had snapped away half of the world’s population, John Krasinski showed us that being quiet could save our lives, Teddy Perkins arrived to give us all nightmares, Bill Hader’s, Barry became our favorite hitman aspiring to act, and July 25, 2018, was the last time we had a new issue of Brian K. Vaughan and … Continue reading Saga- How Maybe the Beloved Comic Could Be Returning Soon… No, Seriously!
As someone who writes quite frequently, it sometimes seems that the act of planning out what to write can be more enjoyable than the act of writing itself. We’ve discussed in the past how in the mornings I like to start planning my writing agenda for the day, which usually gets derailed by a massive trailer dropping or some crazy bonkers news that needs to … Continue reading Why the Fear Street Trilogy Deserves Your Attention
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
Ugh, just when I thought I had a reading plan for the rest of the year the Mrs. and I start watching the Harry Potter movies and I start wondering… should I be re-reading the Harry Potter books? Which becomes an issue for me. Right now, I’m elbows deep in the first First Law trilogy. Fun fact, our good friend Kyle was very much on … Continue reading When Books Attack- Should I Re-Read Harry Potter?!
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
Geeklings, brace yourself for a very generic opening but I honestly can’t think of another way to start this momentous column. The truth of the matter is, it’s best to just be matter of fact, I suppose, and give you a bit of insight on what’s circling around the inside of my head at this moment. Sometimes the best way to be clever is by … Continue reading I Am Geek’s 1000th Column Celebration
