Well, it’s Emmy time again. Time for America to watch as actors congratulate themselves on doing a great job entertaining us, and make a spectacle of themselves while they do it.
That sounds kind of harsh, doesn’t it?
I used to have very strong opinions about the Emmys and made a point to watch it every year. I got wrapped up in who I thought should win or lose, and sometimes felt the tension along . . . → Read More: 2011 Emmy Awards – my thoughts
Magneto, Professor X, Mystique, Beast, Banshee, Darwin, Angel, Emma Frost, Havoc, Azazel, Sebastian Shaw, and… um… tornado dude.
That’s a lot of characters to pull together in one movie. They did a pretty decent job of using them all. But the focus here is obviously with the top 3 (arguably 4) names.
After coming out of this film, it’s obvious that they started writing “X-Men Origins: Magneto” and said “holy crap, we have an opportunity . . . → Read More: Review: X-Men: First Class
I got up this morning and read an email that referred to a comment made on Twitter… that’s a Tweet, for those who’ve been under a technological rock for the past few years.
I don’t really know why I did it, but I went out and created a Twitter account (@caddickisms, if you’re curious). I’m now “following” a couple of people and a few celebrities. I’ve already unfollowed one of them. I’ve created a list . . . → Read More: Tweet
I’m going to revisit a couple of topics discussed here recently and then we’ll hit some new topics.
Well, after my last post I finished watching The Event. I stick with what I said about it, except for this: they did finally manage to make the title relevant, and they alluded to more about the “protectors” that showed they really did have some kind of plan. I like that they had been here before (guess . . . → Read More: Revisitation and new worlds
We’re heading back toward another season of Doctor Who! Matt Smith will reprise his role as The Doctor starting on Easter weekend (April 23rd). Also returning are companions (and newlyweds) Rory and Amy. And of course, River Song will show up at some point as well.
I talked about how excited I was about this season in my review of last season, so instead of repeating myself I’ll just say… “can’t wait!”
Here’s the incredibly . . . → Read More: Doctor, Doctor, gimme the news…
Today I left my house.
No, really, it’s true. There wasn’t a computer monitor anywhere near me for hours. Well, okay, except for when we stopped at Best Buy, but other than that I didn’t have anything more advanced than my watch with me for the afternoon.
And yet, I managed to do something completely geek-related while wandering around a park. I found my first geocache.
Geocaching is like field maneuvers for geeks. People hide . . . → Read More: Geek field maneuvers (without the proper tech)
In the 7 day challenge, today’s topic is: Answer one question I think people visiting my blog may have.
Let’s be honest: I have no idea what question you guys/gals may have. Y’all need to speak up more for me to discern that.
So that leaves me with a choice – I can come up with some completely self-serving question like “what’s the best post you’ve written?” or I can make up something that allows . . . → Read More: How geeky are you, really? – 7 day challenge
Wow! I’m geeking out! This guy managed to mix computer laptop maintenance and an Ultraman-like tribute into a catchy, funny song! He even got a Queen tribute in!
Hats off to that dude. Way to go.
I wonder if he ever got that laptop back together.
Over on The COA we’ve been talking about gaming experiences. To us geeks, that typically means video games, in case there’s any confusion. Though this wasn’t planned, throughout the articles and comments there has been a thread about the social aspect of gaming, and a sense that the rest of the world sees gaming geeks as hunkered down in their parent’s basements eating Cheetos with only their computer for company.
Sure, there are times when . . . → Read More: The myth of the solitary gamer
Am I awesome?
Well that’s sort of a silly question. Of course I am. I’m me, after all.
But is it possible that I’m getting more awesome?
I can’t say for sure, but the fact that I’ve joined together with an international cadre of bloggers recognized for their awesomeness can only be a good sign.
So far our awesomeness is primarily self-proclaimed, but we’ve got the title to put us over the top as the . . . → Read More: Am I getting more awesome?
