Meet Jon, just your average comic-reading, bad-movie-loving, wrestling-watching all around geek guy. We dive into his early days as a geek and see what it is about geekdom that kept ticking long after his parents assumed he’d be done with comic books and cartoons.
Featuring Jon Legault.
Here’s what you need to know about Jon:
There are some people who love something so much, if that thing was a person they would be the kind of couple that’s still making everyone uncomfortable Frenching on the couch. Jon’s not like that. Jon is really into a bunch of things. We’re into a lot of the same things, in fact. Again thinking of interests as people, I guess we’d be swingers and somehow all the closer for it.
What’s valuable about having a friend like Jon is that I always have something to talk to him about. He and I used to go to indy wrestling shows together. I stopped going because of time and money stuff. But I still see Jon because we get together for most of the Marvel movie releases, and before or after the movie we can chat over Tim Horton’s about the stuff we still, or about something like Montreal indy wrestling, the stuff we used to love together but now only one of us is still into.
As geeks, we can never consume everything we want to in the amount we want. It’s like we’re Galactus, time is the Fantastic Four (always working against us), and money is the Silver Surfer (because we thought we had control over it). All we want to do is consume the Earth, but time and money keep getting in our way. If Galactus ever found a fellow space titan and each ate half the Earth, then they could get together and talk about the amazing things they consumed.
