A Fresh GeekyNerdy Start

As Roman Mars, host of the podcast 99 Percent Invisible, often says, hello beautiful nerds 🙂 It’s been nearly four years since my last post and while the reason I stopped writing isn’t important, it’s safe to say that I am back now with a renewed sense of excitement to share my favorite geekynerdy things with you!

Though I wanted to mark this day – which happens to be Geeky Musings’s ninth anniversary – with a completely clean site, WordPress will only hold “trashed” posts in a temporary queue for thirty days; I have plans for those posts that definitely go beyond that deadline. So, for now, things will look relatively similar while I get the blog cleaned up and reorganized, even if I did pick out a new theme!

Going forward, I will be posting at least once, on the second Sunday of the month. I will be reviewing my old posts, deleting anything that doesn’t quite fit what I’ve always envisioned this site to be and reupping some in a “From the Archives” series. Of course, if something really tickles my fancy, there may be a random post here and there, but for now, this is my plan. In the meantime, I want to say thank you for joining me during the previous nine years of geekynerdyness, and for sticking around as I discover another fandom or two! xx GNG

Ten years ago, after watching the last credits roll on Iron Man, I saw SHIELD director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) emerge from the shadows of Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) mansion to mention the Avengers Initiative. Six years ago, I walked out of a screening of The Avengers and thought, “Well, that was okay, but I don’t get what all the hype was about.” Last night, as Avengers: Infinity War faded to black, my mouth hung open and I literally couldn’t process what I had just seen. Continue reading “It’s All Been Leading to This”

Warning: There are some major spoilers in this, so proceed at your own risk!

As I started thinking about this post and what I wanted to say, I realized two things: 1) I never ended up reviewing the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and 2) I’ve never actually reviewed the second season of a show before. The cause for the latter is predominantly because either I, the Mysterious Mr. C, or both of us will lose interest as the storylines become more repetitive or more contrived. The reason for the former is a bit more complicated. Continue reading “Jessica Jones (Season 2)”
