Editorial |Anchors in Times of Transition

I’m sitting here on my bed (the same bed, in case you were interested; just in a different place), with my legs crossed.  “Indian style” we used to call it, before such terms were beneath us.  I know what I want to say, but I’m trying to find the words to say it.  Andrew, the staff writers, and I all avoid talking too much about our private lives.  We know you guys come to Therefore I Geek for witty analysis of geek news, reviews of the most recent comics, and cool anecdotes about comics history.  However, sometimes real life interferes.  Almost a year ago, I graduated from the College of William & Mary, and then took a ten week trip around Europe.  However, since then, I’ve been occupied by a temporary job and a LOT of job applications.  Six months after the end of my travels, I finally landed the job of my dreams.  There was only one problem.  It was in a big city, four hours away from home.

Editorial | Do the Old Movies Hold Up?

Well? Do they?  This morning I read this fantastic article from the AV Club  discussion how well Willow, Ron Howard’s 27 year old brainchild, withstands the test of time.  The author discusses the deep impact the movie had on him as a child, and how many years later, he has recently dug out a copy of the movie and watched it, finding the imagery, while dated, to be as fantastical, macabre, and imaginative as he did as a child, if slightly less engrossing–different from other movies of the same time frame, which have aged more poorly.
