The Silence Breaks

Hi everyone! I know there has been radio silence for the past 5 or so months. We’ve been taking a much-needed hiatus from podcasts and movie reviews. I’ve just submitted my application to Graduate School and Adam has a new baby around. So we’ve been super busy taking care of personal things during our time off. I am not at liberty to talk about when Season 2 of the podcast will drop but we’ll be making plans for that soon. But it was time for the silence to break.

The main reason for posting this is to announce since I’ve been slacking on movie reviews this year, I’m going to be doing them all at the end of the year. This will be mini reviews so not super structured or anything and because they decided to dump a bunch of movies at the very end of the year, I won’t be able to do a top 10 list like I normally do. That will probably have to wait until next year. Also, the reviews will be exclusive for this website. I’ve been cutting out Facebook so I’m not going to be posting on there anymore. So return here during the next couple weeks and we’ll probably have some new stuff for you!

I also wanted to take some time and talk about what I plan on doing next year. I’m not going back for another semester next year as I only went back to help with my application and want to save money. So I’ll have a lot more free time to write articles and reviews. But I want to do more than just reviews. Going back to school has reminded me how much I enjoy learning and writing. So even though I’m not in school, I want to use to this space to explore the research and other learning I plan on doing next year to prepare for Graduate School (acceptance pending). So I’m going to be posting on psychology, pop culture, film, and video games. Figure this isn’t a stretch for a website whose logo is literally a brain with nerd goggles. 

Happy Holidays everyone, and stay tuned for movie reviews!

Redefining Geek – The Who and Why to GMF

Welcome to Geek Mind Fusion. As the first formal blog on this website, I feel it should be an introduction to who we are and what we wish to accomplish with this website. Firstly, an introduction to the GMF team. Adam is the creator of GMF, he’s also our primary programmer and producer who keeps us all on track. My name is Luke, Adam’s younger brother, and content creator. Jacob, who’s the youngest brother is the ideas guy. Then there’s Troy, our art and design guru and Shem, who helps with Marketing.

The common ground we all have is that we are geeks. But the irony is that we are all geeks for different things. We have passions for both a variety of things and some that we share. We aren’t all sports geeks like Shem, and Jacob is the only one who plays D&D. Several of us are geeks for Star Wars, superheroes, movies, and video games but the level of geekiness is different for each of us. I’m a huge Batman geek for example, even though I think all of us are at least a fan.

This dynamic we have is something I believe every social group has. Differences that are held together by one thing, passion. For a geek is someone with passion. And life would be boring without passion.

So really what we want to do is not only redefine geek but to find common ground in our passions. We want to be inclusive to all kinds of geeks if that be your typical video game geek to even your sports geeks.

We are working to produce content for a wide variety of areas from pop-culture to even some more obscure things. This content includes blogs, podcasts, apps and whatever crazy thing we come up with during a “geek-out” moment. 

We invite you to join us in our discussion on all things geek and keep an open mind for the next thing you might find passion in.  Stay tuned for more.
