Podcast Reaction: Rewatch Edition

Seen here:  a Cursed Movie.
Seen here: a Cursed Movie.

This week on the podcast there was a lot of revisiting.  The guys and Jenny rewatched Close Encounters of the Third Kind and at least pretended to reread Ready Player One.  I couldn’t do the first since I loaned my DVD to a co-worker trying to give her son a geek pop culture education, which I have to approve of.  As for Ready Player One, I am on-record for saying that while I did enjoy the book, I wasn’t the huge fan of it that Ryan at least is, since I don’t generally go for nostalgia, particularly 80s nostalgia.  I lived through those years once and very much  believe in living in the now.  A pop culture world that stopped in 1989 is pretty sad in my opinion.

So, I rewatched Clue.

We here at Gabbing Geek pride ourselves on covering breaking geek news as it comes out.  But, near as I can make out, no one here has seen fit to post how The X-Files is returning for a 6 episode stint to the Fox network with original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

How did we miss this?  Well, I have my theories.

Mystery Geek Box Monthly Subscriptions: The Good, The Bad, and The Geeky

Mystery box subscriptions are all the craze these days. You know what I’m talking about, right? Mystery subscription boxes are mail order boxes filled with stuff that you pay for on a monthly basis. The catch is that you have no idea what is going to be in the box month-to-month. You have to go on faith that what is being delivered, will match the value of what you’re paying for the monthly subscription. And depending on what you subscribe to, you can open your mystery box and it may be filled beyond the value of your monthly fee, or you may come up short. It’s a gamble. And with a million different subscription themes out there; boxes for dogs, for foodies, for grooming, for geeks, etc, etc. You have to be sure you know what you’re getting into. Curious? Read on.
