This story starts where most of our current stories now begin… during the pandemic. It was a time of longer hair, apocalypse beards, beer deliveries, and a complete lack of seeing anyone who wasn’t the Mrs. or Hudson the Cat outside of a Zoom call. Times were bleak. Times were different. What else was there for us to do other than watch… Venom? Hey listen, … Continue reading Venom: Let There Be Carnage- A Buddy Comedy In the Making?
This morning I woke up thinking back to the 4th of July Weekend 2019. The weather was outstanding. The type of summer day where you’re living in a pool or beach for as long as the sun is out. The drinks were flowing. I decided to dabble with Ryan Reynold’s gin and let me tell you, with some mint and cucumber those things were going … Continue reading Stranger Things- Cryptic Teaser Brings Back…Papa?!
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’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
San Diego Comic-Con has always been a bucket list item for yours truly. Kind of like the Mecca of Geekdom for me. A great pilgrimage where I would travel across the country in an attempt to make it into the fabled Hall H so I can geek out with thousands of friends I’ve never met. Geeklings, this is the dream and I like to believe … Continue reading The Year We Comic-Con From Home
I woke up this morning anxious. Maybe more giddiness. Or maybe it was actually anxious. Not anxious in that “I know my boss has totally been reading my messages between my co-workers and I” but more the first day of school anxious/giddy. You know, where you’re so excited so you sleep in the clothes you’re going to wear the following day because you think they … Continue reading Community Table Read- A Celebration of Greendale
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
Being stuck inside has it’s ups and downs. Ups, you don’t have to wear pants with buttons on them and I haven’t for six straight weeks now. Some would call that living the dream. On the flip side of that, downs would be not getting to see friends and family without the use of technological marvels like Zoom or FaceTime. Ups though, dance parties. Constant … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy- James Gunn’s Mega Awesome Mix
