Katie and I were watching TV in bed tonight flipping through the program guide when I saw Point Break. I told Katie how I had never seen it.
Wanna know what really sucks? Getting an email from Spotify announcing the arrival of...
A couple months ago, I created my ranking list for Disney/Pixar films. Then I realized that all I did was make a list. I gave no rationale for the rankings whatsoever. This might be a good time to remedy that. So, below, please find my original ranking list appended with a brief reason why...
I want to do another list! I think I need to rank some other related stuff! But what? Hmmmm...
It’s been a week, I’ve let it all settle in, and now I feel ready to recap my return to the Pitchfork Music Festival (day 3). I guess I could’ve saved this for Tu(n)esday, but, I needed a post so, well...
How many of you remember oh-so-many years ago when I ran a pre-Goodreads book review site called Fun With Dead Trees? Probably not too many, I would think.
Don’t mind me. My brain is still recovering from the sonic boom that is Pitchfork Music Festival. I promise I’ll be back with something a little more substantive soon.
Question for y'all... are you fans of the Tomb Raider movies?
When we're offered a free day, couple of days, weekend, week, or month with a free trial of a premium movie channel, we tend to pore (You see that, 45? "Pore," not "pour.") over the viewing guide and set recordings on our DVR. This was no different this weekend with a free four-day trial of HBO and Cinemax and all their varied offshoots.
It only took me seven months to read.
I survived It.
My personal return to the horror movie genre continues in about five minutes with the Toni Collette starrer Hereditary. The trailer for this movie terrified me and I can’t explain why because it really didn’t tell me much about the plot of the film.
As you may recall, Katie and I started watching Alias. We’re now at a point in season one where there is a two-part episode in which a burned SD-6 agent named McKenas Cole comes to exact revenge on his former agency.
I’m not really sure that Orange is the New Black is really for us. It just wasn’t holding our interest. So we found something new. Well, new to us.
It’s so utterly pointless to go into Netflix with no idea what you want to watch. You don’t even need a specific movie or TV show in mind. Not even having a genre in mind can bite you in the butt.
I gotta admit that creating and editing that rank order list for Star Wars films and TV shows (that I’ve seen) was a lot of fun. I think I may try to do it more often with groupings that work logically. I may even make a page dedicated to these rankings to make it easier to find and edit for you and me.
Last week, Katie and I played the role of cool kids and binge watched both available seasons of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix.
This past weekend saw the launch of the latest Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story. This is the one that fans thought was completely unnecessary and were hoping would never actually happen. Admittedly, I was partially in that camp. While I wanted to know for certain which tales were "real" and which were not, I didn't think I really needed to know to the point of dedicating a full 2+ hours to it.
I don't know if you all read the same way I do, but sometimes it takes me a while to hit that proverbial stride when I crack open a new book.
I think I finally figured out some comic books to read in light of the fact that all my current monthly reads will be dead by August. Mostly, like I've said, I'm going to dig back a little bit and read a few dead titles that are still recent, but don't require a month-to-month committment. Maybe I can even find them in the library. That would be nifty!
The other day, we all went to the library and picked up the largest and most varied stack of items I have ever seen leave a library.
With Descender ending in a few months, I’ve been scrambling to find new comics to read. This desire for “new” has even led me to go back through old stuff. Both stuff that I’ve read and want to revisit and some old stuff that’s new to me.
The other day, I was listening to Queen’s Flash Gordon soundtrack and was reminded of the line in the movie uttered by General Kala, “What do you mean, ‘Flash Gordon approaching’??”
I got some horrible news early this past week...
I'm just going to put it out there... I am scared to see The Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1. There. I said it.
Despite a strong desire to sleep, I got up, showered, and went to Record Store Day 2018.
As happens any time there are re-casting rumors for the role of James Bond, the world has its collective panties in a twist.
The other day, I took in one of my first * experiences with the up-and-coming horror movie powerhouse Blumhouse Productions.
I’m not a big fan of reading music reviews. Often times, I feel like a reviewer doesn’t give enough of a listen to an album before passing judgment. On the flip side of the coin, the industry suffers from rampant fanboyism so how objective can they truly be?
When someone first mentioned that Cloak & Dagger was coming to TV, I expected a remake of this...
I gotta admit that when I decided to get back into collecting audio cassettes, it would be easier than it has been to amass my collection.
The final lineups for the Pitchfork Music Festival have been announced and my mind has been made up, even more so than it was before.
Thanks in no small part to Hrishikesh Hirway’s latest episode of the Song Exploder podcast, I’ve been really digging on Ludwig Göransson’s score for Black Panther.
Do you take part in NCAA Men’s Basketball “March Madness” Tournament brackets? I do. I have for several years. I don’t always do well.
For the first time since I was a teenager and Dennis Miller headed up “Weekend Update,” Saturday Night Live has become can’t-miss viewing each week.
