Hiya Geeklings!

So, bad news first.  This will actually be my last post for the Teen Vortex website.  We’re going to be moving away from blogging here and looking into other options.  So don’t worry, I’ll still be around in the libraries and creating lists on the catalog and hopefully I’ll find another place to write, it just won’t be here anymore.  Womp womp.

So quick thank you to you all.  To everyone who read my posts.  To anyone who glanced at them.  To anyone who commented.  Hopefully you enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed writing them.  High fives all around!

So let’s cap off the Weeks of Geek the way we always have… by talking about geeky stuff.  I’ve got a few trailers for you, ’cause it’s what I do.

So we got our first look at the live-action remake of The Lion King.

Just a glimpse for now, but hearing James Earl Jones again gave me all the nostalgic feels.  Though really, can you call this live action?  All the animals are animated!  Well, we have until this summer to decide.

And a popular book series by Eoin Colfer is getting the big screen treatment.  Check out our first trailer for Artemis Fowl.

And lastly, remember I was talking about Venom last week?  Well it’s coming out on Blu Ray in December (we’ll get it into the library as soon as we can), and apparently Sony is in on the fandom response to the movie, as the trailer announcing the blu-ray release has been tweaked to make the film look a little more rom-com.  Well played Sony!

So there we go, a few fun things to tide us over.  Again, thanks everybody!  Stay tuned for new programs and new ways we’ll be keeping you guys posted on what’s going on.  And again, don’t hesitate to come in and talk to us, let us know how we can make the library better for teens, for geeks and for everyone.

Until next time, End of Line. 😉

Week of Geek: Why we REALLY watch the Super Bowl ;)

What’s up Geeklings?  Good to be back!

Let’s get right into it.  While I was off doing stuff, the Super Bowl aired this past weekend.  Now, I know it’s a cliche to be a geek and not be into sports, but unfortunately I am that cliche.  The guys from The IT Crowd perfectly capture my feelings on sports.

They’re talking about soccer, but really it could be any team physical activity as far as I’m concerned 😉

BUT the Super Bowl has other things going for it.  From the half time show (looks like Gaga KILLED IT!) to the commercials, there’s something for everyone.  But I think my favorite thing is the trailers.  Some are only half a minute long, but still, it’s a new look into some of the movies we’re just so excited for.

A few highlights this year include trailers for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (put a hold on the first movie here).

The new Scarlett Johansen remake of Ghost in the Shell (we’ve got the original anime film here).

The latest big-robots-smash-things entry Transformers: The Last Knight (we’ve got the the whole series, but here’s the first).

Then more Logan (another warning, this film’s rated R, but the movies leading up to it are not, so have at it.  I’d either start with this one or this one).

Season 2 of the Netflix hit Stranger Things isn’t coming until next October, but here’s a quick look.

And, of course, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (here’s Vol. 1).

And, if all of that weren’t enough, this week we got a first trailer for Netflix’s Iron Fist (you can start with the first Defender, Daredevil, right here).

Wow!

I’ll leave you guys with all of that to process, but stay tuned for more news.  Stay awesome, and until next time, End of Line.
