I don’t know how we did it, but tonight was an absolutely perfect cool Fall night for trick-or-treating. And we had another good one last Saturday at my parents’ neighborhood for more trick-or-treating.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite recurring segments here at kapgar.com... Taped — Where we uncover old (and, sometimes new) analog cassettes I’ve acquired.
I couldn’t really expect you all to guess the bottom half of last week’s challenge photo. However, the top half? A gimme!
There is such a thing as too much sweet, right? Like gut wrenchingly, sugar coma inducing, diabetic shock causing sweet, isn’t there?
So today is only October 27 and, yet, Nathan has now gone trick-or-treating twice already. The difference is that today, all three of us got in on the action.
No, that's not some obscure reference to a tarantula. It's my next Rankings list! Seeing that director Quentin Tarantino is vowing to retire after 10 cinematic directorial turns, it seemed kinda fun to do a ranking of his 10 and title it by mashing his name with the number 10. So Tarantino + 10 = Taran10o. I thought it was clever, anyway.
Today, we bid a fond farewell to our home phone. Remember these? We all used to have them but more and more people do not anymore.
I was shopping for a candy bag today at 2nd & Charles for Nathan to use for trick or treating this year when I saw this...
As you know, I've been a fan of the Lore podcast for a couple years now. It was announced last year that Aaron Mahnke's stories would be making the transition over to anthology-style television courtesy of Amazon Prime Video.
Okay, the Macro Monday challenge photo last week wasn’t as tough as I’d promised it would be, judging solely on all who somehow got it. I’m pretty sure I would not have.
You might remember how I've lamented losing my favorite comic book of the last few years, Descender, to the winds of change (read: the story ran its course). Well, knowing it was coming to an end, I held off on reading the final two issues. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It was admitting the end was nigh.
We looked out the back door earlier today and were shocked. There was snow falling. And not just like some small amount fluttering it’s way gently down to the ground.
While I'm not happy that the holidays are approaching, I gotta admit that this is the most stoked I've been in a while for holiday film releases. Yes, this despite the fact that we've had Star Wars films released each of the last three holiday seasons and this is the first in which we won't.
A few years ago or so, I got into Reddit, the so-called "front page of the internet." For those not in the know, it's officially described as a "social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website."
Back in grad school, I was pretty big into documentary films. Heck, I even worked on the crew of one.
Last Friday, I took a lunch to work. At the last second, my coworkers talked me into holding onto it and going with them to a local brat place.
There was some heavy participation this past week. Tons of guesses on the blog, Facebook, and Instagram. I like that!
Due to the fact we will no longer be able to have DirecTV starting next year (HOA installing new roofs and decreeing that no dishes can be mounted on the roof anymore), Katie and I have been researching new means by which to consume visual entertainment.
Happy 17th anniversary, hon! I love you with all my heart and can’t imagine my life without you.
It’s unreal just how much of a difference there is between slow days at work...
It's funny the stuff you find when you scroll back through your history on the web. No, I don't mean your browser history. Just the stuff that you do and record on places like Flickr.
Being that this is Halloween, it's a good time to talk about those things that terrify us beyond comprehension. Yes, I'm going there. I'm sorry but you'll just have to deal with it. And mine is made all the more timely because I just finished watching season one of Lore on Amazon Prime (you might be familiar with this name because of my Kevin's 7 Podcast lists of the last couple years - 2017 | 2016) and the final episode ("Unboxed") was all about dolls.
Imagine my surprise when I showed up at MOD Pizza with some coworkers for dinner tonight and discovered this...
Oh me! Oh my! Two Macro Monday challenge photos in a row that were just too darned easy!
Recently, I picked up a habit from a coworker. That being that I will keep my laptop open and serving as a second screen to my large monitor. On that second screen, I’ll run videos from MoviesAnywhere, Apple’s TV app, or Netflix.
It’s kinda becoming habit for me to start work on a video before the subject matter is done. As a result, I’ve been working on this video for a couple months now.
Much like the mistake I made with my initial Disney/Pixar rankings post, when I ranked the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films a couple months ago, I forgot to explain why I put them where I did. Time to rectify that mistake.
The other day, Nathan came home from school with a new book checked out from his library. It was titled DC Super Pets: Royal Rodent Rescue.
So far today, I have received no less than a dozen SMS notifications, 25+ Instagram notifications, Lord-knows how many Apple News notifications, among other less important notifications on my iPhone.
September is always a busy month for us. Between Nathan starting school and a new yearlong routine to his birthday to my company’s annual on-site celebration to whatever else, I was ready to let some goals go. Let’s see how I did.
I can’t count on one hand how many people got the challenge photo right. Heck, I can’t count on two hands and two feet how many.
