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 !!

SILICON VALLEY

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 !

FAVE SILICON VALLEY MOMENTS

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…tumblr_n4eenbzLAd1trb5guo1_1280

That moment you realize programmers are like gangs…

STAR WARS VIDEOS BINGE

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 :

ANT-MAN WASP / RED QUEEN THEORY

*SPOILER ALERT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVEN’T SEEN ANT-MAN YET !*
and by the way, WTF you waiting for ? 😀 it’s awesome !

UntitledcOkay 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. UntitledIn 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 !

FACEBOOK IS DOWN !

Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 1.19.59 AM

I first reported this issue about 10 hours ago on Twitter… impossibility to access the website on any of my devices, whether it was iPad, iPhone, Macbook or Windows computer. I checked my internet connection which was fine, everything else was working as usual, cleared out my browser history, the cache and cookies, updated the apps on iPad / iPhone / Windows desktop, but none of that worked… whether trying to access it from the app or internet, it wouldn’t come through.

I checked back on Twitter, it has become my main since Facebook is down; there’s the hashtag #facebookdown that y’all can lookup for updates about this if you want, and I noticed at first this was a problem happening in Serbia especially…

I read through some more tweets & found out this was also happening in Germany (guys, I’m vacationing in Serbia so I feel you, stay strong !)

Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 1.17.47 AMSomeone made a map (I don’t know how accurate this is but I’m sharing anyway) of where Facebook is down since the 20th July… we’re 21st July today, it’s starting to feel like a heck lots of time, without any answers about it or anything. If you can’t join me on Facebook & Messenger since yesterday is ’cause of this whole mess. There’s still my Twitter @iconamerica & e-mail madisonkennedy@mail.com for that. Some people already made up theories about this, blaming the usual ISIS or the Apocalypse… I am blaming Facebook, because this is something they should be able to fix, I don’t really care who crashed it, even though to whoever did it : you’re a stupid ass and I hate you.

ANT-MAN REVIEW

Untitled*MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT !!!*
Do not read if you’re going to see it… and GO SEE IT !

ANT-MAN -★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

I went to the theater on Thursday 16th (a day before the official US release) to watch Ant-Man in 3D. I was super excited, the last MARVEL Universe movie was Avengers : Age of Ultron – totally badass by the way, I do not care what some negative critics said, it was flawless !

Which was in May… a little more than two months later, and it’s finally time for the much anticipated Ant-Man. After seeing the trailer the first time, I was like “what ? how are they gonna pull this off, without it looking super dorky ?” well… after seeing it, I can tell you : it is SUPER DORKY ! But damn guys, it was just great ! My mind was like “wow cool !” after Scott Lang aka. Ant-Man shrinked, and we started to see our world from his sight, which was awesome.

A bit of history here for the non-geeks, or people who are unfamiliar with this character’s background, created amongst other by the genius Stan Lee (by the way, yes, he appears is in the movie : how could we possibly go without a cameo of his in a Marvel). His first appearance in the comics was in 1962, and the original Ant-Man was Doctor Pym, this guy discovered a chemical substance he named “Pym particle” which allowed him to shrink to the size of an ant. Not only that, but he shared with his girlfriend and she became the Wasp.

Not many people know this, but Ant-Man and Wasp are very important in the Avengers timeline. They are the founding members, they were part of Avengers since the beginning ! THE FREAKING ORIGINAL AVENGERS IS THEM ! (Plus Iron Man, Thor and Hulk… nope, Captain America was a later recruit). And do you want to learn something else mind-blowing about Doctor Pym ? It was NOT Iron Man who created Ultron, it was ANT-MAN ! YAAASSSSS ANT-MAN AKA. DR PYM MADE BADASS ULTRON !

Now you get my excitation, why I was craving to see this movie. It represents so much more than what you can tell from the short trailer they made. For an Avengers fan like I am, it’s a new Avenger character basically that I was expecting. The best part of this whole thing, is we actually got another one… as seen in the after credits scene, Wasp is to be featured in the next Ant-Man movie ? Marvel already announced it / they “will come back” (yaaaaaaaaaa *breathe, try to calm down… nope* aaaaaaasssssss !)

My opinion is biased 100% but… it was so good ! I just enjoyed every bits of it ! It was literally like watching a comic book / graphic novel made into a feature film. I know what you must be thinking, it’s the point of all superheroes movies, but this one more than any other Marvel Universe movie, felt to me like it had something dorkier about it… like we was back to the origins, which are comic books. I can’t explain it, but it was better than expected for sure.

Antman2

The best moments were the fighting scenes, I was “oh oh oh… this is cool” Ant-Man was like on fire ! Shrinking, back to his normal size, shrinking again… fighting them dudes and looking freaking amazing ! &The use of ants was brilliant, I got so impressed of those tiny bugs, that now ants are my new idols 😛 The most wondrous part was when Ant-Man went subatomic to destroy Yellowjacket HOLY SHEEEET ! He disappeared in a Quantum Realm where time and space meant nothing anymore, he was to be lost for an eternity, but his bravery, love for his daughter, and ingenuity got him outta there & even Doctor Pym was impressed.

There is reference of Doctor Pym’s enmity towards Stark, reason why they didn’t call the Avengers to help them save the world… it’s Hydra who’s messing around with Yellowjacket on this one (I know, big shocker… *sarcasm*). Ant-Man was insane, he went to the Avengers Compound and fought with Falcon, and defeated him to steal a device in order to stop the end of the world… wow WHAT ! It was super fun ! I still can’t believe (but I do… Ant-Man is a boss) he beat a current Avengers member : if that doesn’t win him a ticket in, then I don’t know what will.

STAY UNTIL THE END There’s two after credits scenes, and I know it takes forever until it’s done, but it’s so much worth it, I almost peed my pants how surprised and happy I was to see CAPTAIN AMERICAAAAAA ! (OMG DAT ASS) It’s Civil War related, and we get an exclusive look at Bucky Barnes aka. the Winter Soldier who looks… kind of terrible. Conclusion to this movie, is Marvel did it ! It is absolutely not disappointing, it’s dynamic and entertaining and funny, and I LOVED IT 😀 I LOVE YOU MARVEL Thanks for making these epic stuff !
