Okay, so we are little late on this one, but it can't be helped. The Founder in Geek, me, is a bit busy with movies and books.So, here are my reactions to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as I watched... (MASSIVE SPOILERS)1-5 Great opening intro with an ordinary single being a hero by saving a woman from a burning building. Turns out, he may have super powers.  Awesome. Then, cut to D-Bag Hot Agent who is on some mission, shows his skills and will most likely be the show's "rebel". Not liking him … [Read more...]

GGR’s 2013 Emmy Recap

Emmys AnnaGunn

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, who is finally feeling like all those years investing in Breaking Bad has paid off...So, I caught the Emmy awards Sunday night, and there wasn't much to go on about.  Jimmy Fallon's presentation was one of the simplest, yet most well-performed gags of the night, only to be capped off by Will Ferrell, who came out on stage with his three kids, dressed in vacation duds, and turned his presentation of the Best Comedy Series and Best Drama Series … [Read more...]

BreakingBad SaulGoodman

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, who can't believe this news wasn't delivered in a colorful package all tied up in a bow...One of the worst things about one of your favorite television shows ending is that you wish you could get more.  The end is near, all the signs are pointing towards certain doom, and the writing has been on the wall, in the papers, and on all the message boards for some time.  And yet, hope springs eternal.Today, I give you, the Breaking Bad fun, glad t … [Read more...]

Grace Unplugged: Creating Art out of Personal Pain.

One of the questions I get as a writer is: where do I get my ideas? I find it a difficult question to answer, because some of my stories are grounded in deep personal pain that I have no wish to discuss with the wider world. Usually, I give some lame answer about “not really knowing.”A few weeks ago, I went to the press junket for Grace Unplugged. One of my fellow journalists asked, “Was Grace Unplugged inspired by a real story?” A very natural question, and one I assumed would be answered wi … [Read more...]

Cross-Country Romances Do Sometimes Work

Here we sit, two weeks away from the end of another glorious baseball regular season, and for the second straight year, my dear Phillies will enjoy the postseason from the same vantage point that I will...the living room couch. After years of bloated contracts, huge trades that decimated the farm system, and of cour … [Read more...]

“Ripping Callouses off People’s Hearts”: Interview with Indie Music Artist Jennifer Daniels


(Every time I listen to Jennifer Daniels, I'm transported to my college days. Covenant College is a converted 1920's hotel and grounds (yeah, its as cool as it sounds), so it had a lot of neat little secrets around every corner. Tucker Hall, if I remember right, was old caretaker cottage converted into a coffee house, the Stoplight Cafe. Jenn (also a student at the time) often sang on cool fall nights and transported us to other worlds. That's what her voice and lyrics do. One moment, they can … [Read more...]
