Mailing Things to Places

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about mailing things to places. Packages, letters, even the GeekNights Tshirts before we put them on Amazon! In the news, Rym bought a new mattress from the Internet (following on from our show on beds), a bunch of SMS messages from a long time ago just got sent to everybody, the American off-year election went very well (potentially bringing the Equal Rights Amendment back to the table), and we will be live at PAX Unplugged teaching three games and teaching you to take your damn turn!

Sleep

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider sleep, having previously covered beds. In the news, Disney needs to be broken up, another strain of polio has been eradicated, and several US House Republicans are dangerous criminals endangering the very fabric of American democracy. Also, PAX East badges are live!

The Logistics of Moving

Tonight on GeekNights, Scott having just moved, we consider the logistics of moving. We did talk about this on a GeekNights episode from 2006, but we are older and wiser in this terrifying new age. In the news, the Blizzard situation continues to evolve, the impeachment of Donald Trump becomes more urgent by the hour, we learn about the Sergeant at Arms, all utilities should be nationalized, and we hope you enjoyed the meteor showers.

Fruit

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider fruit (except apples). In the news, someone figured out how to dispose of old TVs for free, China's bot game is mad weak, Youtube's takedown policies have changed for short musical clips, and Scott has some chair woes. Also, Grapefruit.

Cheese

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider cheese. In the news, we wonder what the deal was with Rym's Christmas Cheese, Ninja leaves Twitch for Mixer, a bad person was rightfully denied a panel at PAX, and we remind you that GeekNights has endorsed Elizabeth Warren for the Democratic primary.

The Matrix (1999)

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1999 film The Matrix. In the news, nobody wins the Pokémon T-Shirt Contest we discussed on Tuesday, a bill to ban games that abuse children with loot boxes or pay-to-win has bipartisan support in the senate, and I'm Gonna Have Me Some Fun is one of our favorite movies. Also PAX West 4-day badges return, and you should be on HIGH ALERT starting Tuesday.

Us (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic 2019 horror film Us. In the news, after some bike fails and overheating, this amazing Super Mario Commodore 64 port is taken down, Star Trek Voyager is better than you remember, and GeekNights formally endorses Elizabeth Warren for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination.
