It's Morphin Time! Those three awesome words never get old for Power Rangers fans everywhere. This year is the 25th anniversary of the premiere of arguably one of my favorite shows of the 90s: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I remembered being that five-year-old who would watch it every day after school. Every episode that I watch, I always pretended that I was a Power Ranger. I had some action figures, including a White Ranger watch. So you can tell that I was a die-hard fan and still am to this day. Even as an adult, I collected even more action figures and had lots of Power Rangers comic books. I've noticed that people are hating on this 90s television series and calling it, "lame," and, "cheesy." Luckily, this Power Rangers fan is coming to their defense by clapping back at the naysayers.
Wearing geeky shirts are a way to express who I am. In my early 20s, I started to wear them and by the time I turned 30, I had over two dozen shirts. Many people ask me why I wear them and the reasons are obvious: they fit and I love them. I plan to continue wearing geeky shirts forever. On social media, I use #geekyshirtfriday to post which shirt I'll be wearing every Friday. One week it would be a Nintendo shirt and the following week, it would be a Power Rangers shirt. It all depends on the type of mood I'm in. I'm going to share my five best geeky shirts. Hope you enjoy this wonderful list.
For over 30 years, former competitive gamer Billy Mitchell achieved many accolades and rose to fame as the best gamer of all time. However, back in April, there was an investigation conducted by Twin Galaxies and it concluded that Mitchell, 52, submitted fraudulent and dishonest scores. In result of the controversy, Twin Galaxies had removed his scores and prohibited him from submitting any more scores in the future. The Guinness Book of World Records has also stripped Mitchell of all of his high scores from their record books. Here are some of the accomplishments he has achieved before they were taken away from both Twin Galaxies and Guinness Book of World Records:
With his loyal fans on social media supporting him all the way, Power Rangers star Jason David Frank has a fanbase who's always on his side and devoted to him. Growing up, I loved his character, Tommy Oliver, and watching him on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The five part series, Green With Evil, was amazing and got to witness Tommy becoming the sixth Power Ranger. However, as I've gotten older, Jason's antics and attention seeking ways has turned me off. Let me be clear about a few things. I'm a huge Power Rangers fan. That's my fandom and will always show love and appreciation for the franchise. So whenever I see someone do something that's uncalled for or inappropriate, I'm not afraid to call them out. Just because I'm a Power Rangers fan, it doesn't mean I always have to like someone or agree with everything. I'm going to speak the truth and be brutally honest, whether you like it or not.

Con season is upon us and every year, cosplayers everywhere stand out at conventions. They put in so much effort and time to create their costumes. During con season, I'll be interviewing different cosplayers from all walks of life. They deserve so much credit for their creativity.
