The Joys of Powering Down

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

Loki- Yes, The Infinity Stones Mattered

After six looooong weeks, the MCU finally returned last week with the first episode of the much-anticipated Loki or Marvel’s attempt to dip their toe in Doctor Who like storytelling. Sure, for some six weeks isn’t really a long time, but going from zero Marvel content for a year to ten weeks’ worth of content back to none is a bit trying. I’m pretty sure … Continue reading Loki- Yes, The Infinity Stones Mattered

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings- First Teaser Is Spellbinding

We’ve come a long way since last year which seems weird, doesn’t it? Recently, I was looking back at some of my quarantine pictures on Instagram, as one does when they feel nostalgic for their apocalypse beard and fun headbands, and I’m kind of in disbelief that this was only a year ago. Wild, right?! Feels like it’s been at least three years with a … Continue reading Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings- First Teaser Is Spellbinding

WandaVision- Don’t Expect ALL The Answers In The Finale

Normally when watching a season finale of a television series you expect some amount of closure. There’s a lot of responsibility on a season finale to tie up all the loose ends of the season while also setting up potential story threads for the upcoming season.  Despite how great a season has been over the course of ten to fifteen episodes, the season finale is … Continue reading WandaVision- Don’t Expect ALL The Answers In The Finale

The Last of Us- HBO Finds Its Ellie & Joel

 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 Am Geek Best of 2020 Part I

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

Ted Lasso- A Very Much Needed Hug After A Rough Week

Last Monday, I sat down in front of my keyboard and started clacking out some words. It felt good. Better than good even which I’m sure constitutes as “great” or any other adjective that exceeds the word “good”. Such a boring word for such a wonderful feeling, but alas, I did not invent language otherwise there would be more weird noises and eyebrow movements. That … Continue reading Ted Lasso- A Very Much Needed Hug After A Rough Week

Ummm, Netflix…Where Is Parks and Rec?!?!

Alright, nobody panic. Just take a deep breath. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Close your eyes and try and center your chi…? Or just calm yourself down in less fancy terms. Just a few times. Come on, I’ve got the time if you do. I think doing this three times is exactly what we need before we take things any further.  Here … Continue reading Ummm, Netflix…Where Is Parks and Rec?!?!

Disney+ Watch Parties Have Arrived

I’d like to take a minute and thank our technology overlords. Yes, the ones who provide us devices and means of connecting through this wonderous mystery we call the internet. While 2020 has mostly been a bag of suck, technology has had our backs. The Nintendo Switch allowed us to social distance properly while still visiting our friend’s Animal Crossing islands and then immediately humbling … Continue reading Disney+ Watch Parties Have Arrived
