About

Get lost in my train of thought and let the geekgasm flow! Hi there and welcome to my blog. As you could probably tell by now my blog is about the geek lifestyle – movies, television shows, comic books, video games, and whatever it is that makes a geek tick. Join me as I react and geek out on the trivial and the groundbreaking.

Latest news, reviews, and releases – nothing escapes my radar. Did I watch Game of Thrones last night? Of course I did. Have I seen the latest Doctor Strange trailer? You bet. Do I play Overwatch? JUSTICE RAINS FROM ABOVE. Am I looking forward to The Flash Season 3? Errr… I haven’t started watching the show. Boo, I know. My point here is that like any other geek, there are topics that I excel in more than others. That’s where The Hobbeek comes in. My goal is to express my geekiness with you and to explore new hobbies and interests. The best part about being a geek is not really the entertainment we receive from pop culture media, but the connection you create by sharing that experience with others.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, who am I? The only reason why I’m adding this part on this blog post is to give you some context on where my views and opinions come from. For some reason, I get anxious and awkward when I have to write an entire paragraph about myself (yay self-esteem) so here are some bullet points instead:

  • Name: Dale
  • Age: 25
  • Nationality: Filipino
  • Currently based in: Manila
  • Interests (main geeky competencies):
    • Marvel Comics (Mostly X-Men)
    • Marvel Cinematic Universe (I watched every movie, show, and one-shot)
    • Video Games (PS1 – PS4, PC)
    • Movies
    • Television Shows
    • Fiction Books
  • Areas for improvement:
    • Anything DC related (My goal is to immerse myself in more DC media)
    • Manga (I have never read a single manga book)
    • Anime (I stopped watching after the 90s)
    • Non-Fiction Books
    • Tech gadgets

So that’s pretty much all you need to know about me for now. Hopefully we get to know each other more throughout this blogging journey I decided to embark on. If for whatever ever reason you feel the need to reach me either to geek out or to throw some shade (hopefully not, please don’t), you can shoot me a message through the contact page or my social media channels.

Again, welcome to The Hobbeek!
