Sometimes you don’t know how badly you wanted something until it randomly shows up in your Twitter timeline. For example, I didn’t know how badly I needed a shark who wears board shorts until I saw King Shark in the Suicide Squad trailer. Now I can’t imagine a world without that guy. We all didn’t know how much we needed a Baby Yoda until that … Continue reading Ghostbusters: Afterlife- I Ain’t Afraid Of No… Mini Stay Puft Marshmallow Men?!

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?!

Friday is the gift that keeps on giving, kind of like re-watching … Continue reading On Fridays… We Avoid The Internet
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
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
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
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 II
