Snippets 2017.01...

Because, yanno, why not?

Sean Spicer has resigned from his post as 45's Press Secretary, eh? I'm seriously only shocked that it didn't happen sooner. I missed the announcement, as I've missed so much else the last couple days because my brain is anywhere but here. So I got word of the resignation from Katie via SMS. Check this out...


Here's how I envisioned it all going down...

I only wish SNL wasn't on summer hiatus. We need to see Melissa McCarthy's take on it all. When the heck is that summer run of Weekend Update starting???

I finally saw Wonder Woman yesterday afternoon (I took a day off). Don't get me wrong, it is a fantastically well done movie worthy of its place as one of the best superhero flicks of all time.

Yet, for some reason, I just didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I fear I put it on too high a pre-release pedestal and that expectation left me a little empty. But I cannot pin down why. It was amazingly written, directed, acted, edited... everything I need for a great movie. But still...

Whoever was in charge of creating this pre-release promo for the DVD/Bluray/4K drop of Guardians of the Galaxy, vol. 2 GETS IT! This thing is sheer brilliance and Marvel/Disney better reward the person(s) heftily or someone who does recognize the amazingness of it will swoop in and hire them up.

Reminds me of the old Time-Life CD promos I used to order from all the time.

Have you watched Stranger Things yet? No? Why the heck not??? Do it. Now. Don't pass Go. Don't collect $200. Once you've done so, this Tweet will make so much sense. If you have watched it already, enjoy!

Rest in peace, Chester Bennington. You've provided a soundtrack to my life that can never be replaced. Thank you. You are missed.

Sorry for the downer at the end. I love Linkin Park and something needed to be said.

Aside from that, this has been fun! Let's not wait so long until next time, shall we?

I forgot all about these Choose Your Own Adventure books I found at my parents' old house about a decade ago. Also included in my collection, apparently, are some Find Your Fate Adventure: Indiana Jones; Which Way Books; and Wizards,...

Going down the snippet list...

Spicey out is good

Loved Wonder Woman, almost as much as I loved the 3 Iron Man movies (currently my fav of the superhero films)

I love that GotG old school video.

Stranger Things not watched here yet. I have a lot to catch up on still. I'm assuming that show will be on Netflix for a while.

I was shocked when my daughter texted me that Chester had taken his own life (similar to how Chris Cornell ended his life). I I knew he struggled, but after his performance at Cornell's funeral, this news hits really hard.


As it's a Netflix Original, Stranger Things will be there until the service shutters. And even then...

So was it weird having Snippets here again?

Not weird, but nice.


It was fun to type them too.
