I see a lot of you guys are still checking the geek posts on The Blog, and you might be wondering why I don’t publish those anymore ?
Well, it’s because I have founded my own online magazine where I post daily updates about all kinds of geek related news & content… lots of cosplay of course, it’s one of my fave things 😀 but also Star Wars, and LEGO, and video games, and comics, and comic cons, and etc !!
So if you’re missing these things from here, you can check them there : geeklandmag.com
Guys just so you know… I’m dying & this is not in any case my official review of the show. I’m just bored to death and I can’t sleep because I’m literally obsessing over the code of my new website *spoiler alert – it’s an online magazine for geeks, which I’ve been working on for the past couple of days* and I took a Silicon Valley break, because their episodes make me laugh and I need to relax… like I know what that word means anymore.
Anyway. It’s about 2am right now & I’ve been up since 8am, so approximately 18 hours without any sleep, and even though the need is there and I can so feel it, well, my brain won’t shut up and let me be at peace. Every time I close my eyes I can see the style sheet and while I got the HTML part right, I’m still struggling on CSS which is basically the most important, so I can’t think of anything else.
Unlike most of those Palo Alto dudes in the show, I’m more like Nelson “Big Head” Bighetti, sometimes I don’t know what the shit I’m doing and I definitively am not some mastermind like Richard Hendricks. But coding is fun, and I’d pick that up over gaming since it amuses me more; I’m still learning, over at Codecacademy mostly… I dropped out of Harvard CS50 course because I couldn’t deal with the homework. I’m a busy lazy ass who can’t get no time for stuff like these.
But yeah, what the hell… I just wrote a bunch of paragraphs for nothing, barely mentioned the show… listen folks, I love it okay. This is my conclusion to this fake-ass review. Every actor in it is great, watch it & get addicted to it. The writers are making some pretty awesome jokes, and I’m at my second re-watch and still enjoying 🙂 Go Pied Piper !
These are my top three favorite Silicon Valley moments from season 1 😀
I recommend this show to anyone who loves coding, programmers & all the tech talks. This show is hilarious and the writers have gone to great length to get it as accurate as possible… definitively better than The Big Bang Theory (not meaning to start a fandom war here, i’m also addicted to that series).
That moment when they tell you that your operating system is “Apple Maps bad”…
That moment when an angry dude is coming to beat you over the company’s name dispute…
That moment you realize programmers are like gangs…
I am so impatient for the next Star Wars movie release, Episode VII the FORCE AWAKEEENS !… that I have been binge watching some interesting and fun videos on YouTube, to keep me chill; these are three I wanted to share with you guys 😀
From this year’s San Diego Comic Con, a reel that shows some behind the scenes on how they been working on the set :
This fan-made Harrison Ford reaction to seeing the Star Wars Teaser #2 is just hilarious ! Blade Runner fans, you’ll enjoy this :
&Lastly, if you haven’t seen it yet, this is from that time Harrison Ford visited Jimmy Kimmel and got awkward with the Wookie on stage :
*SPOILER ALERT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVEN’T SEEN ANT-MAN YET !* and by the way, WTF you waiting for ? 😀 it’s awesome !
Okay guys… I got me thinking about the Ant-Man movie, and my latest review (that you can read here : click) where I was super thrilled about Evangeline Lilly’s character Hope Pym, the daughter of Dr. Pym and her future role in Marvel Universe, of course I promptly concluded she would play the WASP.
But after a day or so I remembered some things about her character in the comics, which I totally overlooked because who doesn’t want Ant-Man and WASP reunited ? & not to forget I’m a DC Comics fan-addict, I don’t read as much Marvel, especially those dorky stories. In the comics, Hope Pym becomes the Red Queen, a villain that has a grudge against the Avengers and creates her own team named the “Revengers”. So if Evangeline Lilly who’s Hope Pym in the movie Ant-Man should play anyone, by the comics, it should be her.
I don’t know if you remember but there was a scene when Dr. Pym asked Scott Lang to make the ants put sugar in a cup of tea, and then Hope took it over angrily, and commanded hundreds or thousands of ants to do so and the room darkened, because the ants were coming from all parts and even hiding the light above the table where the cup of tea was.
This could be a sign of evil ? Yes, no ? Doesn’t matter, it’s a theory and I would actually prefer seeing her play the Red Queen than WASP, that way we could get the original WASP back from the Quantum Realm where she is lost… you can let me know what you think of this, there’s now an open poll at the bottom of this post for you to vote ! Cosplay of WASP is by Riddle Messy Wardrobe (picture below, right side).
