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
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
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
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’m not a crazy New Years Resolution guy. That doesn’t mean I don’t make them but I try to keep them obtainable. I feel too often we set these unrealistic resolutions and all they do is discourage us for the rest of the year, and 2020 was discouraging enough in itself. Mainly I focus on things like my yearly reading list (which I crushed) or … Continue reading Ten Thousand Views Celebration
