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

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
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?!?!
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
I’m starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with me. I could possibly be broken. At the very least malfunctioning. My lovely wife and I wrapped an intense binge-watching of all things Ozark about two weeks ago, maybe longer I don’t fully understand how time works anymore, and since Run the Jewels started blasting during the season three finale… I haven’t binged watched anything since. Granted, we’ve watched alllll of The Floor … Continue reading How Long Should A Binge Hangover Last?
I’ve been quarantined or social distancing for close to four months at this point. Four. Months. That’s crazy. In four months, I’ve played a lot of Animal Crossing, I’ve binged a lot of television, we’re talking amounts that would be alarming to others, and I’ve read a number of books and graphic novels. In those four months, as previously discussed, I have not gone to … Continue reading I Am Geek MCU Movie Rankings (Updated)
I can’t imagine it’s easy to launch a new streaming network especially in a world that is more or less overflowing with them. If you have a particular interest, I’m pretty sure there’s a streaming network for you. Like to watch meerkats stand up and look at things? Then you’ll love Meerkats Plus! Not a real streaming service but lord how I wish it was. … Continue reading HBO Max Is Kind of A Mess, Huh?
Rick and Morty are no strangers to pop culture easter eggs. This is a show that has thrived on throwing little details in the background of episodes for fans to harvest and ponder what the deeper meaning is. If there’s one at all. Sometimes I believe that Justin Roiland, Dan Harmon, and the rest of the Rick and Morty crew throw things into the background just to mess … Continue reading What Famous Pop Culture Location Just Showed Up In Rick and Morty?
This whole quarantine thing has been a bit surreal, he said as quite the understatement. As we speak, I’ve just completed my second month working from home. My beard is full. My hair is long and unruly. I’ve fallen in love with headbands. And I’m more or less swearing off real pants going forward. Who needs them? There’s no question that quarantine has been quite … Continue reading Why The Community Table Read Should Leave You Cautiously Optimistic
