Facebook Pet Peeves

Facebook Like Button

Facebook.  It’s a social networking site.  I’m not going to bother explaining it any further than that cause if you don’t know what it is, you probably won’t be able to understand the explanation.  I’ve talked many times about Facebook.  I’ve said some good things.  I’ve said some bad things.  I’ve wondered how they do some of the things that they do.  Today I’m back with a couple of Facebook pet peeves.  If you’re a … Continue reading

The Phantom Menace In 3D – I Hope It Fails Miserably

The Phantom Menace In 3D

I’ll warn you in advance… I have a feeling this is going to turn into a bit of a rant.  I have a feeling that I may insult a few folks and for that I apologize, but quite frankly I’m at the end of my rope.  Don’t say I didn’t give you a head’s up. My respect for George Lucas is officially gone.  The man that created what I consider to be the greatest series … Continue reading

Sammy Hagar Gets Uncensored In RED

RED: My Uncensored Life In Rock by Sammy Hagar (2011)

I’ll start this off by saying Van Halen is probably my favorite band of all time.  I’ll follow that up by saying that I’m one of the rare few that thinks Van Halen was a FAR superior band with Sammy Hagar in it than when David Lee Roth was the front man.  With that housekeeping out of the way… No pun intended, but this book rocks. RED: My Uncensored Life In Rock is just that… uncensored.  … Continue reading

Thank You SPIKE – You Brought Me Back

Thank You SPIKE

I’ve been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember.  I grew up with the original trilogy to this day those movies have shaped my geekdom in many ways.  The prequel movies came out and like just about every other Star Wars fan I was ecstatic to once again see this universe on the big screen. I’ve written in the past about how based on those prequel movies I’m done defending George … Continue reading

The Re-imagining of ‘V’

V: Coming This Fall

These days you can’t turn around without seeing a reboot, remake or retelling of some story from your childhood.  Hollywood has been on this kick for quite some time now so it was only a matter of time before remakes came to network television.  ABC is throwing its hat in the ring with a “re-imagining” of the 80’s classic V. I’ve heard about this for quite a while now and to be honest with you … Continue reading

Another Childhood Favorite – ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra’

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

Before I start this review I wanted to give you my Joe credentials.  While I’m not old enough to have had the 12 inch figures I was fanatical when it came to the Hasbro figures and the original Marvel comic books.  I watched the cartoons religiously and remember like it was yesterday when I saw the animated movie for the first time – Cobra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!!!  With that out of the way, on to the review. This … Continue reading

Is My Childhood Being Raped?

Child Of The 80's

I was born in the mid 70’s. It was before we had hundreds of channels on TV and it was before there was a blockbuster a week in the theaters.  There are comic, cartoon and movie properties that are so ingrained into my being that they are a part of me… and they’re all being redone for the sake of the almighty dollar. Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Halloween, Friday The 13th, Tron… I could … Continue reading

10 Years Later This Geek Is Done Defending Lucas

Star Wars 10 Years Later

Let me start off by saying I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan.  Always have been and I always will be.  Those movies and everything associated with them will always have a special place in my heart.  By association I’m a huge fan of George Lucas and the galaxy far far away that he created.  That said, on the 10 year anniversary of The Phantom Menace, this geek is done defending him. Ever since the final … Continue reading
