This may cost me the small amount of geek cred I've managed to accumulate over the years, but I'm going to go ahead and say it anyway: I don't know who Rocket Raccoon is.

Well, I know who Rocket Raccoon is now, sure. But if you'd asked me a year ago, before Marvel announced that a movie adaptation of the superhero group Guardians of the Galaxy was in the works, I'd have assumed Rocket Raccoon was a YouTube video about rednecks strapping roman candles to a hapless varmint.

I still don't really know Rocket Raccoon, though. Or Groot. Or Drax the Destroyer. I thought I knew comics and superheroes, but I don't know the Guardians of the Galaxy from the Guardians of Ga'Hoole. And I have zero interest in seeing a movie about them.

Whew. Feels better to get that off my chest.
