ABOUT MAROONERS' ROCK
Everyone grows up; this is how the world works. Just because we grow decrepit and old, however, does not mean we have to forsake the things that make us happy, childish though they may seem. So though we grow old, we will always remain young at heart, which echoes the themes of Peter Pan.
I’m glad you mentioned Peter Pan, as it provides a wonderful segue into our explanation of Marooners’ Rock. Like the themes of Peter Pan, we will, as we grow ancient, retain our love and passion for the things we held dear in our long lost youth. However, there is more to the concept than simply enjoying what we have always enjoyed and that is excitement in the face of new experiences! This is where our long and winding story finally comes to its point: Marooners’ Rock. Peter Pan’s first genuine thrill came on Marooners’ Rock, where he thought he was going to die. His famous line at this point was, “To die will be an awfully big adventure!” We’re taking that and giving it our own spin: “To geek out will be an awfully big adventure!”
This is the core concept of Marooners’ Rock; we geek out on the things of our past, present, and future. The thrill of enjoying the things we have always enjoyed and the exhilaration of finding new things to enjoy will stay with us, and hopefully with you. Societal and cultural norms be damned!
You will get our honest opinions, without spin, bias, or pressure from anyone or anything, and vow never to sell-out to the man (unless we’re given ridiculously obscene amounts of cash to do so, because I don’t know about you, but I’d love a wall of TVs – also, I have student loans, man).
We’re just a group of people, standing (metaphorically) in front of another group of people, asking them to love us.

I do things with words that have a generally geeky gist.
Sammi is an avid gamer who enjoys seeing ink on paper almost as much as she likes seeing it on her skin. When she isn’t drag-racing, Sammi is busy finding someone who will listen to her long-winded rant about why the Oxford comma is an absolutely mandatory part of a proper sentence.
There’s not much to be said about Sisco. He’s just a simple kid from Brooklyn who loves video games, burritos and coke…a-cola that is! When he’s not out searching for the perfect quesadilla he’s home playing video games, new and old alike. There is only one thing that’s left to said or rather to be asked…WHERE BROOKLYN AT?!?
