A Bit Of My Geek Collection

80's Toys

In a previous post I talked about how I’d recently gone through some boxes in the basement and pulled out some old toys, specifically my Devastator from back in the day.  That lead to a discussion on one of my favorite podcast’s Facebook page about our collections, etc.  I took this quick video to show a couple of my items and thought I’d share it here as well. It focuses on figures from the first … Continue reading

I Hate People

Middle Finger

OK… so the title of this post isn’t quite true.  A more accurate title would be “I Hate People Who Can’t Or Won’t Drive The Correct Way When It Snows” but that seemed a bit on the longish side. I live in northeast Ohio.  I also happen to live in a particular spot of northeast Ohio called the “snow belt”.  If you’re not familiar with the term please allow me to explain.  Based on our … Continue reading

Spend A Few Evenings With Kevin Smith

Sold Out: A Threevening with Kevin Smith (2008)

If you’re a regular reader of the blog here (and probably even if you’re not a regular reader), you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Kevin Smith.  Not only do I enjoy his movies, but his books, his podcast, Twitter, etc.  I’ve often said that he’s the modern day George Carlin for the way he weaves words and that’s the biggest compliment that I can give him.  Speaking of Carlin, one of the things … Continue reading

The Confusion Ends Sunday… Maybe

Lost On ABC

Don’t worry… this post contains no spoilers.  I couldn’t spoil you if I wanted to. The series finale of ABC’s Lost airs on Sunday evening and so (hopefully) does my confusion.  I consider myself a Lost fan for sure, but I’m not a Lost geek.  The distinction is minor, but one that’s important to make between fans.  As an example, I have no problem sitting in a bar talking theories with my buddy Pat about … Continue reading

“The Book Of General Ignorance” – Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong

The Book Of General Ignorance (2007)

I picked this one up at the library after hearing about it on Kevin Smith’s Smodcast a while back.  I’m kind of a trivia junkie so I figured I’d really enjoy this.  Essentially (as the tile suggests) these are little nuggets of information that are pretty much universally thought of as “truth” when in reality they’re complete bullshit.  It’s an interesting read if you enjoy tidbits of info such as: How many moons does the … Continue reading

At Long Last… Lost Is Back

Lost On ABC

It seems like forever and a day but tomorrow night Lost on ABC will finally return for it’s final season.  I’ve written in previous posts how I wondered if ABC had made a mistake by keeping Lost (and another show V) off the air for so long.  Well I can’t speak for everyone but I can tell you that for ME it wasn’t too long cause I’m pumped as hell about the season premiere tomorrow … Continue reading

Tuesday Night = V Night

V On ABC

I’ve finally had a chance to watch the pilot episode of ABC’s V and I have to say that I’m REALLY happy with the way it turned out!  I won’t bother going into a recap here cause there are literally thousands of podcasts, blogs, etc. out there that will do that for you.  That said, I was so exicted about the show’s return that I figured I needed to do a follow up with a … Continue reading

Has ABC’s Lost Made A Tactical Error?

Lost On ABC

This post contains no spoilers whatsoever on the upcoming season… I (like countless others out there) am a HUGE fan of the ABC show Lost.  There are certainly others out there who are more fanatical than I am.  For example I’ll listen to a couple of podcasts about the show but I’m not one to re-watch an episode looking for stuff I’ve missed.  If I missed it, I missed it.  Part of the reason I … 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
