I recently purchased a Marvel Legends Captain America Shield. That’s not a brag, although I suppose it kind of is because the shield is awesome, but it helps give context for the rest of this piece. You probably have figured it out by now, if you’ve been reading this site for the past five years or so, but I love collecting things. Always have. When … Continue reading Falcon and the Winter Soldier- Is The Shield The Show’s True Villain & Can It Be Redeemed?
Trailers are secretly the best gift to get randomly during the week. Think back to last week when James Gunn Tweeted on Thursday, we’d be getting a trailer for The Suicide Squad. Suddenly not only were we excited for new episodes of Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the premiere of Invincible but we had a big-budget comic book movie trailer to get excited about … Continue reading Trailer Dump- Saw, Rick and Morty, & The Bad Batch
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
Friday’s are clearly the best day of the week if you take out Tuesday and the tacos it usually brings. The work week ends, you can stay up later if you want to drink till your hungover you now can do that, and it marks the release of new shows, movies, or episodes. Friday is the gift that keeps on giving, kind of like re-watching … Continue reading On Fridays… We Avoid The Internet
When I was younger March 18th was assumed to be National Hangover Day. As a good Irish boy, I love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day; green beer, green bagels, green clothes, “Kiss Me I’m Irish”, the works! And sure, when I was younger I might have overindulged a wee bit which usually resulted in waking up on the 18th with a shamrock painted on my cheek … Continue reading The Snyder Cut- A Reward For Toxic Fandom
What the what?! Geeklings, I have spent three out of the last four workdays on endless Zoom training and my earbuds for some reason don’t stay connected so I have to actually attach earphones to my laptop, which limits my mobility and hurts my ears, as the instructor goes on and on and on and on until my face looks like a cartoon character who … Continue reading Wandavision- New Promo Raises Big Questions But Did We Need It?
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
I’ve recently started working in my office again. Gone are the days of sweatpants, bathrobes, and fun pop-culture-themed t-shirts. Gone are the days where I could turn around and open my refrigerator for food, going to the bedroom to say hello to my wife, or pet the head of Hudson the Cat. I am officially integrating back into the “at work” workforce and I’m adjusting. … Continue reading Indiana Jones and The Upcoming Video Game
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
