Alright, so, let’s begin. My name is Tom, and I’m a pan-geek.
Over a decade ago, a dear friend came up with the idea of pan-geeks – scifi fans that also liked regular science, fantasy, sports, board games, videogames, cosplay & conventions – basically a cross-section of nerdiness that wasn’t confined to just being a Trekkie, or a Browncoat, or a Whovian, but any & every one who got excited about being a geek and would bring what excited them to the figurative or literal table to share with others.
It was a fun group of folks, and I have since considered myself as not just a geek because of it.
When I lived in Austin, Texas, I would attend free screenings & write reviews for SciFi4Me.com. Fun times with that website, too. It’s still a going concern for Jason and his crew, check it out, if you like.
I’ve been living here in the eastern part of Texas for the last six years. Since there is next to nothing to do here (or, put another way, I don’t hear about events until after the fact), I watch a lot of movies, using streaming services like Hulu & Netflix, the Redbox rental service, and by simply going to the movie theater. But, since there isn’t a major market near here, the free screenings have ended.
Back in December, I joined AMC Stubs, and have not missed a week’s worth of three movies since then, sometimes just going to all three in a day. Friends & co-workers have suggested I start a blog to share my thoughts about what I’m watching, since I’m going to some of the same movies multiple times, and have hardly missed a new release unless I just had absolute zero interest in it.
This isn’t a personal blog, it won’t be a life story. It will be public, and it will be open for discussion if anyone wants to comment on what I’ve watched, what they’re watching, or what they are excited about seeing in the future, or an old favorite to share.
