Tonight on GeekNights, we talk in an ultra generic sense about amusement parks! In the news, the Alamo in San Antonio is a terrible tourist trap, Westworld is pretty good, and Ayumi Hamasaki's hearing takes a tragic turn for the worse.
Tonight on GeekNights, it's Thursday (the lounge), where we talk about anything. And thus, tonight, we talk about chocolate. In the news, Star Wars Celebration is happening, Fujifilm's Instax Square cameras are coming, senators put forth a great bill in response to United being a horrible airline, but the GOP has been anti-airline-passenger for basically ever, and Canada is legalizing marijuana. Also, kilotons aren't tons. They're 1000 tons.
Tonight on GeekNights, it's one hell of a cop-out as we talk about indoor lighting. It's just too dark in our apartments. In the news, beware the day of no news, don't drop things in space, and it's always sunny in Philadelphia.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about beds (of which we ain't afraid). Not sleep: that's a topic for another time. Beds only. And Rym's amazing pillow. Also, laundry fires, ADA issues with UC Berkeley's public course material, a CC response to this, Rym's old Advance Wars test streams, and the Matrix reboot.
Tonight on GeekNights, it's Thursday, so we test out some livestreaming with a show about... lunch? Yes, about lunch. Literally. In the news, we did a show in 2010 called A Bunch of Dwarves, The Great Wall is probably awful, and someone got their Nintendo Switch early.
Tonight on GeekNights, now that we can assume everyone has seen it, we talk about Rogue One. It's a Star Wars Story. Easily the fourth best Star Wars movie. In the news, the Superb Owl LI is coming, the hybrid icing rule change was a great idea, and you should call the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs to oppose Steve Bannon's role in the National Security Council. In a short span, NYC Taxis, NYC Bodegas, and Comcast employees have all struck, with the looming and hopeful potential of an anti-Trump General Strike.
Tonight on GeekNights, it's not a Christmas special, but we do talk about Christmas. And Shazaam. Christmas movies, Christmas music, stories, anecdotes, everything. In the news, Running Man is ending amid ridiculous drama, and Rym reviews, on a high level, both his new skis and the advice we always give on when to upgrade your stuff.
