From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, as told to by the naked blanket he has wrapped himself with, although he is not naked… Stop picturing it. There is a certain voice that, when heard, gives cause for celebration, a hope of magical, whimsical moments of absurdity, and a guarantee that there will be virtually nothing stress-inducing for the next 30 minutes.  Over a low-quality school-grade public address system, we hear the jolly tones coming out, carrying news… Read more

As some of us across the nation welcomed in the first day of 2014 by sleeping in and lounging around yesterday, others – a certain contingent in Colorado to be exact – got up bright and early to be among the first in U.S. history to legally buy marijuana. Feel free to locate the irony in that sentence, if you wish. Yes, pot is now officially legal in the United States. In one state out of fifty, and with numerous… Read more

  Tomorrow, at noon Central time, I’ll be taking my vows as an Oblate Noviate. Strangely, the Geek crowd is probably best equipped to understand what all this means. How so? Allow me to explain. In Geek culture right now, Game of Thrones, comics, and nearly every paranormal book contains some sort of “monk” like order within their respected “world systems”. Some of these groups are forces of good and some, well, not so much. So, when I tell my… Read more

First, Merry Christmas from all of us here at Geek Goes Rogue. Alan, Zach, Melody and I wish you all a very wonderful holidays. Now, as many of you know, my book, 3 Gates of the Dead, is in book outlets everywhere. While you can get the hard copy version, the ebook is available in all forms at 5.99… Along with that, my publisher is running a film maker contest. You can find all the details here. The deadline is… Read more

Many people ask me why I gave up my evangelical ordination and journeyed towards the Catholic church.  I struggle to answer these questions because there are multiple answers. None of them are simple The recent Mark Driscoll controversies (Named Legion, for they are many), and the release of Pope Francis’ Joy of the Gospel gives me an opportunity to hit one of the major issues that drew me to Rome. For those of you don’t know, Mark Driscoll is one… Read more

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, as told to by the bed that is beckoning him from miles away to just give up and take that 17-hour nap… I’ve become more familiar with BuzzFeed over the last 6 months than I care to.  For those not indoctrinated, they make, among other things, lists.  Most of the time, the lists aren’t that special, and seem arbitrary, depending on who creates them. However, yesterday, they did something right by… Read more

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, as told to by the plastic nativity set in his closet… I am very upset right now. Just a few minutes ago, I found out that ABC aired A Charlie Brown Christmas already.  Last night, in fact.  Monday, December 2nd, they aired one of the most beloved and revered animated Christmas specials that has ever been produced. I’m upset because I missed it.  That animated special has wedged itself into a very specific… Read more

Thanksgiving was less than a week ago and I’m still digesting my mother-in-law’s stuffing, mashed potatoes, and heavy Oreo-laden desserts (and I mean that in a good way). Of course, in this country, we have nary a moment after swallowing the last bite of cheesecake before many of us rush out the door to compete in the annual American bullfight known as Black Friday. And why do we take part in this sacred tradition? Is it because that’s when we… Read more

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, as told to by the bag of Apple Cinnamon Chex that doubles as his pathetic dessert… In 2003, Five Iron Frenzy put their clubs away for good.  After performing 2 farewell concerts on the days immediately following Thanksgiving that year, and recording the final show for a live CD (and subsequent documentary DVD that featured the performance as an extra), the band called it quits.  It was an emotional decision for… Read more

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, as told to by the steam coming out of my ears because Jay Leno is on my television… #SpoilerAlert. Over the last few years, I’ve begun to understand what it’s like to become attached to a great television character.  Every TV series that lasts for more than 3 seasons, or that has its own niche within a dedicated fanbase, has at least one character that people latch onto with wild abandon…. Read more
