Enough Digital geekyness, what about the Physical?

I’ve been spending a lot of time away from digital media, television, and computers (gasp!), and found a world of geekocity where these usually specified geeky things are not allowed. Think of it as a time where you don’t have to stare at retina displays, or LCD monitors, or hold a rumble enabled controller (even though you certainly do want to most of the time) and just play with cards, dice, paper, pens, plastic or wood pieces.   Continue reading

Batman Begins: The Hybrid Child of A Long Halloween and Batman Year One

Batman Begins is an amazing piece of cinema directed by Christopher Nolan, and is an interesting new Batman film put up against Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher.  While Tim Burton famously made Gotham very dark and edgy with Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker, and Joel Schumacher… did his best…; Christopher Nolan’s Batman chooses to find more inspiration with recent incarnations of the beloved character.

iPhone 4s: What’s The Big Deal?

The iPhone 4s.  Is it new? Yes.  Do you need one? It really depends.  Do any of us really need one? No, of course not.   It’s a cool gadget, and of course with the Apple name you are getting style, versatility, and simplicity.  Yet, do you as a consumer of products need to change whatever phone you are using right now for a shiny new 4s?

Cloud Technology: Paving the Way to a Digital Frontier

The Cloud is an interesting idea.  Think about how not so long ago the only place we could count on accessing our data was locally, or on a disk.  As hard drives get smaller in size and larger in digital space while the internet becomes a technological marvel it is now possible to save your data over the internet to a hard drive space somewhere in the world and not have to save the data locally.  Yes, things like remote desktop have existed for years, but never as fluid as it is right now.  Even video game companies are cashing in on cloud technology.  There is an alternative to owning a console or pc these days.  You buy their set top box and it accesses a number of different video game titles remotely for you to cloud play.   Cloud storage is the way of the future, and it is scary as hell.

2 Day Shipping has Ruined me and my Generation

I’m a product of this new generation that requires instant gratification, but to blame our generation for this tendency is not 100% correct.  Look at all of the different things trying to distract me from having patience.   Continue reading

Sam Raimi: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Okay  so, maybe my title is a little much, but Sam Raimi is pretty awesome.  For a guy who created a cult classic trilogy, established cheesy catchphrases quoted by the masses, and inspired countless youth to imagine if they too could have a chainsaw for a hand – Sam Raimi was just getting started.  A tribute post, this is a look at the man and his accomplishments, past, present, and future.

Let’s Keep This Train Moving: The Captain America Post

Writing about Green Lantern: always a good time.  Writing about Thor: it was an experience.  Writing about Captain America (right now!): Hell yeah.  I was always a DC fanboy growing up.  Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Man Hunter, and The Flash (to name a few) have always captured my tiny heart and forced me to shun Marvel for ages.  As I’ve matured, it is easy to analyze and interprate the differences in each universe and praise each for their continuity (or pick their futile attempts at entertaining the masses apart like lambs to the slaughter!).  All in all, as I’ve read in the last year, universe-wide storytelling goes to Marvel hands down. Bringing together all of the heroes and villains of the Marvel universe has been much better tackled than their DC counterparts. Continue reading
