Geeky Goodies: Getting Ready For Deadpool 2

I don’t know about you but I love Deadpool. From his dark humour, to the quirky cast of characters. Between both comic books, video games and the movies, I can’t get enough of the guy. With the recent release of the new Deadpool 2 trailer, needless to say, the Deadpool-hype is real. Even though the film doesn’t come […]

The next film to come from filmmaker Wes Anderson is the stop-motion animated feature Isle of Dogs. The film follows two dogs who dispute over the contents of a bag they find.

‘The Name Game’ – Shirley Ellis – Track Of The Day

I’m a fan of catchy songs, but then, who is it? I recently watched an old episode of American Horror Story in which the immensely talented Jessica Lange sang her own rendition of “The Name Game” originally sung by Shirley Ellis.

‘Kicks’ – Barns Courtney – Track Of The Day

Barns Courtney is one of those artists I came across completely by accident, but has been turning up in TV soundtracks ever since I started listening to him. One look at any of his music videos, and yes, he is trying a little too hard to look edgy. But his music is catchy! I’d recommend […]

Nerd Hero – Matthew Mercer

For this week’s Nerd Hero, I have decided to talk about Matthew Mercer. Not just because I look up to him as a nerd icon, but because countless others would consider him in the same light. With his work and contribution to the geek-community in the last couple of years, he has amassed a large and loyal […]
