Geekery Release Friday – September 29

Movies! Films! Records! Albums! New! Here! Let’s go!

Is September the month of horror remakes? Looks like it! Even though IT is still tearing up the box office, FLATLINERS may offer some strong competition. Starring Ellen Page, the film updates this 1990 tale of five medical students who trigger near-death experiences – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. It doesn’t go well.

AMERICAN MADE is an action-thriller about a pilot that lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s. It stars Tom Cruise, so expect quips, billion-watt smiles and lots of running. At the very least, it looks better than THE MUMMY.

Also out: LUCKY, the last film of Harry Dean Stanton, who stars as a 90-year-old atheist undergoing a spiritual journey. Another pick is TIL DEATH DO US PART, about a nightmarish, abusive relationship. There’s also SUPER DARK TIMES, about best friends who are driven apart when forced to cover up a gruesome accident.

The biggest of the new albums out this week is likely Miley Cyrus’ YOUNGER NOW. Unlike the more provocative, wild image of recent years, this release finds Cyrus leaning into her country pop roots.

If you like your music a bit more out there, but still melodically-focused, give a listen to Torres‘ THREE FUTURES. The singer-songwriter’s third album explores the sensations and desires of the body and how those relate to the human spirit. The songs range from gorgeous to creepy, a whole variety of flavors!

If you like your music, ummmm, really, really out there, Primus is back! Their new record, THE DESATURATING SEVEN, features the return of drummer Tim Alexander. It’s a loose concept album based on the children’s book “The Rainbow Goblins.” Because of course it is.

Other music picks include the varied alt-rock of VISIONS OF A LIFE by Wolf Alice, TELL ME YOU LOVE ME by pop star Demi Lovato, David Crosby’s new folk record SKY TRAILS, the downtempo R&B of Ibeyi on ASH and the mind-bending jazz of Kamasi Washington on HARMONY OF DIFFERENCE.

Any weekend plans out there? Bueller?

  • It’s Friday! Thank goodness!

  • Devin Harris

    American Made is about the pilot that was tied to the Clinton’s, right? Wasn’t he shot down by the cops or something?

    • from looking him up I don’t see anything about clinton. This guy cruise is playing spoiler alert died in 86

      • Devin Harris

        I just read up on it. I think I’m thinking of a different guy. The guy I’m thinking of died in a helicopter crash

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I’m busy again today. This is ridiculous!

  • Everyone who writes about movie box office already has their Flatliners Dead On Arrival it’s opening weekend. headlines written right?

    • ProjectBlue

      Tis a weird movie. People at the other place have mentioned it’s actually a sequel. Has that been communicated any where or in marketing? (Plus, would that even help? Who gives a shit about the original?)

      • The commercials just a couple weeks ago started tossing in a clip of Keifer.

  • Facts

    FRIDAY!

  • Facts

    Will start watching Firefly on lunch.

  • ProjectBlue

    Without having to drop stooges off at school any more, I’m getting in later and later this year. Need to adjust as I used to get all my crap done in that gap between drop off and my first bell

  • RudoWakening

    Got our ass chewed this morning because the guy that has been inspecting the intermodals before they leave the yard wasn’t doing his (easy) job. The gasket on one of the lids was completely fucked, and when he was confronted he got indignant. This is the same dude that got me yelled at the other day. FUCK.

      • RudoWakening

        They were great!

        • Matt_InGeeked

          So much fun.

  • Diddly

    My horrible haircut looks better today, but still awful. I can’t get it fixed until next week though 🙁

    • wait …were you the one talking about going to super cuts?

      • Diddly

        Yes, I ended up going and got a horrific cut. Ended up with the one woman alive who doesn’t know how to work a #1 up the sides.

    • Facts

      Shave. Your. Head.

    • TatR!

      oh no! I told you just do it yourself!

  • ProjectBlue

    Fridays are annoying, one thing I think I wouldn’t mind about being a regular teacher is just being able to shut down the day with tests. Having to give the same lesson for the 7th or 8th time of the week is all the ugggggggggggggggggggggggggggh

  • HAIR CUT DAY!

  • Facts

    We should start a GOFUNDME to get Diddly’s hair fixed.

    • Diddly

      I would even settle for the $16 I had to pay… that’s not even any cheaper than my regular barber shop

      • My Supercuts is usually pretty good. But my hair is also pretty easy.

        Number 2 on the sides, and trim the top.

        • Diddly

          I asked for that same thing, just with a 1 instead of 2. Woman started giving me all sorts of excuses as to why a 1 wouldn’t “look right” and said she would to a fade with a 1 and 2. Then she barely cut the top!

    • nope we all said don’t go to supercuts.. some times a kid needs to touch the hot pan once to know not to touch the hot pan

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        I go to Great Clips. They’re usually pretty decent

        • I was a sports clips guy until I finally decided to go for a barber… best decision ever though I’m sure not everyone is offered free beer with their hair cut. So your barber experience may vary

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            I used to go to a barber place called Goodfellas. Best fucking place ever. But they closed 🙁

          • Diddly

            We have a new barber chain here called Bird’s but I’ve never been because I hear it’s always at least a 2 hour wait

  • BoD just rerouted me to a sketchy “click this link to clear all of your many many viruses” page, so it looks like you guys get me all day!!

    • hmm the site is working for me

      • Yeah, it loaded properly the second time but I’m still not fucking around with that shit at work

    • Diddly

      Scott must still get a shitload of page views, or the posters there are so dependent on that site that they don’t mind because I don’t know how that shit is still there

    • Facts

      I get that from time to time.

    • Brian_Bayless

      I never get that there on my home
      And work computer but did once on you phone.

  • I was going to make a new avatar today but not motivated maybe for monday

  • I used to go to a proper barber but now I just get my hair cut downtown near work (for years now) and the only options less than 40 bucks are Super Cuts or the academy and I do like the academy for having young busty girls for the most part, but they always take a long ass time and still cost more than Super Cuts.

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    As a millennial in 2017 I firmly believe Blondie just fucking oozed coolness.

  • Devin Harris

    How does everyone not have their own personal barber? You just can’t let random people cut your hair

    • Reasonable Opinion Guy

      Give me a nice,fat bonus and I’ll get one.

    • ProjectBlue

      I buzz my own every few months. ProjectCheap

  • Facts

    The best barbers are the ones with the big knockers who get in ya face.

    • Devin Harris

      Maybe Pastor Hope can get into barbering if this church thing doesn’t work out

      • Facts

        OH SAVE ME PASTOR HOPE!

    • DAJackson7

      This is why i go to the local cosmetology school….always boobs in the face….and a haircut no worse, probably even better, than what Diddly got

  • Damn, the company that I work for is reserving 275 million dollars for claims resulting from the recent hurricanes and earthquakes in the Caribbean and Mexico. That’s fairly substantial.

  • The Marty Jannety thing going on over there………….I .just can’t……..
    and It’s not even me condemning them and their conversation….just…….wrestling people…..are gross

    • Reasonable Opinion Guy

      So much for his Legends contract

    • WorldWide Duck

      Marty is gross. The response could have been much worse at least. Except Cult, he’s always awful.

      • Like I was saying I am not even talking about comments just……….this is a thing that is happening………

        • Devin Harris

          It’s a step up from talking about wrestler’s sex lives and their junk

          • Facts

            ……………………………………..?

          • Devin Harris

            You ever watch a You Shoot? Just cringe inducing.

          • Facts

            Oh yes, it is.

          • this is sex live talk technically

          • Devin Harris

            Yeah, true. Back to square one

      • Cult really is the worst.

        • Miko363

          My favorite Cult-ism is when he doesn’t like where a conversation is going so he randomly replies with stuff about a fantasy trade.

    • Phred reposted a creepshow article about that show Heroes by that movie review guy that looks like a sports mascot.

      He was on about the cheerleader character having a healing power that manifested while she was still a virgin and so whenever she had sex her hymen would heal up and maintain perpetual virginity.

      So it’s not just wrestling fans.

    • Facts

      They are an odd bunch.

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    Speaking of creepy men

    Men at tech fair molest £3,000 sex robot so much it’s left broken and ‘heavily soiled’”

    • for 3000 it should be sturdier and self cleaning…. this is on the makers not him

  • I guess I worded my comment poorly I was not attacking anyone over there or their conversation just… that a situation is there for a conversation because Marty felt it was a good idea to poll facebook if he should bone the 20 something he once thought was his daughter and now knows is not.

  • DAJackson7

    Had a wild evening last night…went to my Elks Lodge meeting and instead of me and the 15 old guys that are usually there for the meeting, there was at least a hundred people there. Odd i think to myself and then the first order of new business is brought up……Lets make the building smoke free! And the shit storm went on for an hour and a half

  • Diddly

    I need to start working on my Facebook post for the A&M/South Carolina game tomorrow. All the dick jokes for the Cocks!

    • Facts

      Tessa Fowler supports the Cocks.

    • DAJackson7

      Too much maroon in the SEC

      • Diddly

        3 Tigers, 2 Bulldogs

        • DAJackson7

          Ugh, Auburn needs to ditch Tigers and just be War Eagle and then LSU and Mizzou can battle in every sport (not just basketball and football but golf and everything) for five years and whoever wins gets to keep the name…..just think instant rivalry!

    • Devin Harris

      I’m busy working on my jokes about how agriculture students can’t grow a football program.

  • I mean, I guess being “heavily soiled” is the lot in life of a sex doll.. but behind closed doors people!

    • WorldWide Duck

      Not the display model!

  • Facts

    All we need is sex robots.

  • Facts

    I bet that sex robot enjoyed it!

  • Facts

    If you want a sex robot there are millions out there in 3rd world countries.

  • Facts

    A man wakes up early one morning to go ice fishing. He dresses warmly, and heads out onto the ice with his tent, his ice auger, his fishing rods, and his sittin’ bucket, and begins to auger a hole in the ice. After just a few seconds of drilling with the auger a big booming voice from above intones: “THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE HERE!” The man looks around and, not being a very religious man, resumes drilling his hole in the ice. Again, he hears the thunderous voice: “THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE HERE!” Becoming a little spooked, the man packs up his gear and moves 30 feet from where he was and begins making a new hole in the ice. “THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE HERE EITHER!” the voice thunders again.

    The man looks up, “God, is that you?”

    The voice responds “NO, IT’S THE MANAGER OF THE ICE RINK!!”

    • DAJackson7

      First part is great, second….not so much

    • TatR!

      Leaving sports early is so bad. You don’t stay for the end you may as well not go

      • ProjectBlue

        I’m a fan of early arrivals, but for the money paid, I’m there until shooshed out by the ushers.

  • So today is hair cut day and I have a bit of an issue with my hair. I’m very happy to be circling in on 40 and still have pretty much all my hair but it is a little thinner in front. My issue is the widows peak I always hated growing up is mostly gone but there are like these random hairs still holding on of the peak that I feel makes me look lame

    • TatR!

      Widows Peak was Victoria’s finisher. Got that in the quiz.

    • TatR!

      My main issue is the stupid white hairs. My hairline is fine.

    • DAJackson7

      I have all kinds of balding..so i just cut it super short….i really wish i had a full head of hair again.

      • I don’t think I have a head for baldness.. Blanche says the doctor was an asshole and didn’t push the soft spot down so it’s kinda egg shaped under there

    • TatR!

      I have found that most people just don’t really notice other peoples hair issues for the most part

  • You can expect more deep thoughts posting like this next week as the HEY BACHELORHOOD YEAHHHH wears off by Monday and I’m just bored

    • Matt_InGeeked

      If I was by myself for a week, I would be drinking, playing video games, in my underwear. It would be spectacular.

      • It will be for the most part but I know it will get a little old eventually. And then when she is about to come back I’ll be…already? because i’m a sick man

    Sup folks, so I scored a rare SNES Classic last night at Walmart, and I just realized again how much people annoy the hell out of me. This lady in front of me must’ve said like 100 times how worried she was her card might be declined trying to buy this thing. Maybe lady you shouldn’t be buying it if it’s cutting that close….

    • ProjectBlue

      Plus, why would you promote that?

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      • Devin Harris

        Facebook. You on it?

        • Dwayne

          Nah.

          • Devin Harris

            You missing out

        • I have a lot of boring people on my Facebook who do not hot take on much. I like it better that way.

          • Devin Harris

            You are doing it wrong

          • I’m only on Facebook to promote the Geekery and see pictures of my niece and nephew out in Chicago. I don’t need hot takes and political fights.

          • Devin Harris

            I didn’t think I needed either….

    • DAJackson7

      I think i would have like the Pastor Hope ones more, but no one on my FB talks about her

      • Devin Harris

        The more I read, the more I have to agree with you. Some of these takes aren’t really hot. Some are actually pretty thoughtful and I’m not on social media for that.

        • DAJackson7

          Hell no. I wanna hear stories of pastors wives in gangbangs

          • Devin Harris

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Might watch the USC/Wazzou game tonight. I don’t know.

  • The Greek takeaway that I like downstairs has dramatically raised prices.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Just tell them these prices are all greek to you.

      • Hey there, we haven’t met. I’m Mister_E_Mahn. You do look a bit familiar though, do you have a fun hating cousin or something that I may have met previously?

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          Yeah, he died and I took his screen name. He’s been Regal’d.

      • Aww. You’re no longer geeked…!

    *Or whatever. I’m not learning a new thing.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Well she got her daddy’s car
    And she cruised through the hamburger stand now
    Seems she forgot all about the library
    Like she told her old man now
    And with the radio blasting
    Goes cruising just as fast as she can now

    And she’ll have fun fun fun
    ‘Til her daddy takes the T-bird away
    (Fun fun fun ’til her daddy takes the T-bird away)

    • That was my favourite song in grade 5.

      I saw Brian Wilson and Al Jardine sing it live last year.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        That’s awesome. I love the Beach Boys.

        • It was a cool show. They played Pet Sounds in its entirety.

          Wilson’s voice was pretty well shot but Jardine still sounds good and they had other guys to pick up the high notes where Wilson couldn’t do it. The crowd was super into it though and lots of fun.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Yeah, Wilson’s voice has been shot since the 80’s, really.

    Westbrook signs 5 year, $205 million extension.

    • chicagodem79

      OKC dodged a bullet there. I thought there was a real chance he wouldn’t re-sign. The Lakers drafting Lonzo Ball may have saved OKC’s franchise.

    • Dwayne

      205 mill is how many shots he’s taking each year.

      You should YouTube performances of it. A-fucking-Mazing.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I don’t care that the meat is basically mouse cut with Grandma bones and grade school chalk, Taco Bell is delicious. Eating a Taco Bell taco is like running a track meet, being in first continually, and seeing Jesus and your dad in the stands and they are both proud of you and your life choices.

    • I’ve only ever had Taco Bell once and I thought that it was ok.

      • The Silver Fox

        Once more than I’ve had.

        • I mean, I wouldn’t say that it was GOOD, really. But it was fine for fast food fare.

          I’d eat it again if circumstances dictated.

    • Diddly

      I just wish their burritos had more “meat” and less of the refried beans… or at least if they would learn to distribute that evenly. Hate biting in and getting only beans

  • I don’t care much for that weird picture with the faces up top. I preferred yesterday’s train.

    Just like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, 2016’s The Nice Guys
    is going to become another Shane Black joint that everybody loves, but
    not enough people saw in the theaters (though its $60 million at the box
    office is certainly an improvement). Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) and
    Holland March (Ryan Gosling) are another iconic pairing of investigators
    in the writer/director’s filmography, and their journey through 70s LA
    is hilarious, while still ending on a perfect pitch black film noir
    note.

    But Joel Silver isn’t done with The Nice Guys, only now it won’t be Healy and March, but rather two women PIs teaming up to solve crimes in a new Fox television series, The Nice Girls.
    What’s disheartening (though not unexpected, as he’s not a TV writer)
    is that Shane Black isn’t penning the pilot. Instead, it’s Michael
    Diliberti (30 Minutes Or Less) who’s scribbling down funny words for these lady dicks to spit.

    ………what the fuck. This wasn’t even that big a hit and its only job is to piss people off for the gender swap

    • Marv

      I want a female version of Fight Club

      • ProjectBlue

        At least that was huge enough to pseudo-justify. There’s no a single person other than Joel Silver saying “Wouldn’t this be great to re-do with chicks?”

        Why not remake Cagney and Lacey, already chicks, nostalgia pop, far out enough that you could do whatever with it really

    Oktoberfest tonight, fair food tomorrow. Have to really eat healthy next week.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Chinese is coming for dinner!

    The food. I didn’t invite Chinese people over for dinner.

    Not that I wouldn’t invite Chinese people over for dinner.

  • RudoWakening

    It’s Oktoberfest weekend in La Crosse. The college kids are already insufferable

    • The Silver Fox

      Same in Harrisonburg. Also in Radford according to the kid.

      • Here too.

        The one in Kitchener-Waterloo an hour away is the largest in the world outside of Germany and it’s next week.

        • RudoWakening

          Will you be making an appearance for sausages and German beer?

          • Not this year. I would have gone to the Toronto one today but I’ve got to take The Boy to a birthday party tomorrow and I don’t want to be viciously hung over for that. It’s not fair to him if I’m a miserable prick.

            The K-W one is actually over his bday, so that’s a no go.

  • The Silver Fox

    Dinner tonight:
    Ham wrapped figs with marinated bean salad and hazelnuts
    Chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce and noodles
    Pickled red cabbage
    Potato and bierwurst salad
    Vanilla bean custard with sour cherry sauce
    Beer obviously (on my second)

    Doubt I’ll drink enough to try this later:

          But now that your name is out there, you’re really thinking it over, right?

        • This is awkward because I just signed you up for a Habitat for Humanity Build.

      Gotta stock up so you needn’t do silly things like leave the house whilst Blanche is gone

  • SNES Classic on my Facebook Marketplace going for $200, mostly. One marked at $250 and one at $300.

  • And another acquaintance of mine is selling two days of her New York Comic-Con pass for $250. She paid $55 per day. Madness.

    • ProjectBlue

      Something like that I can see though, actual scarcity for something you can’t get dozens of other places on hundreds of other devices

      • She told me she was looking to hawk them and I offered her $150 – because I knew she was looking for a profit. She said she had offers of $250. Today, I see on Facebook that she’s looking for someone to take them at that price. It’s nice to have confirmation she was trying to con me

        • ProjectBlue

          Ouch, that on the other hand is a little scummy

          • What makes it funny is how smooth she THINKS she is and how bad she actually is at it. She’s gonna end up eating those tickets because the mark-up is a bit much.
