Snippets 2019.01...

So many ideas for posts but with so little to say about each. What’s that equal? SNIPPETS!


Before it’s too late, get over to iTunes and buy yourself a digital copy of Office Space for $4.99. I assume it’s today only as this is the 20th anniversary of the film’s release.

I bought a copy and have already watched it and all its extra features. God, that’s a great movie. Just a shame to see it dated by technology. 3.5” floppy disks? Mac OS 7.5? Dang.


Buy it now or the Bobs will downsize you.


While I know they are behind my most highly anticipated movie of the first half of 2019, I have to ask... is Disney running out of ideas? Check this...

Sequels - Avengers: Endgame, Star Wars: Ep. IX, Frozen 2, Toy Story 4

Live-Action Remakes - Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King.

If it wasn’t for Captain Marvel, I’d really worry.


What would you consider your most rewatched movies of the last five years? And I also mean movies that were released in the last five years.

For me, it would probably be Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; Happy Death Day; Love, Simon; Kingsman: The Secret Service; and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

In case you’re curious, my all-time rewatches include The Empire Strikes Back, Tombstone, Captain America: The First Avenger, Real Genius, and Ghostbusters.


Just to make things clear, and because I so totally nailed it in my last Snippet, I am a firm practitioner of the Oxford Comma.

And I will judge you if you’re not.


I logged my 500th book review today!


I’ve been reviewing books online for 21 years over four different websites. I’m just thankful I’ve housed them all under the Goodreads banner so I could see this achievement. 

24 reviews a year. That ain’t so bad.


There is very little that makes you feel older than hearing the “questionable” music of your youth used in the trailer for a kids’ movie. In one theater, I heard Poison’s “Don’t Need Nothing (But a Good Time)” as the trailer music in Wonder Park and then Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart” in another trailer. This was music some parents didn’t even want their kids listening to back in the day and now look at it! 

I love snippets but now my list of post ideas is zilch. Gah.

The handful of people who got last week's #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo warm my heart. Why? Because it's one of my all-time favorite records! The first with the full correct answer, I believe, was my buddy, Eric. Got any clues on...

So, um, if you had a bag of bagels sitting around in your kitchen that don’t look moldy or in any way bad, would you eat one? What if you knew they had been sitting around for approximately four weeks?...

Disney: There's also Penguins and Artemis Fowl, but your point stands.


I didn’t realize Artemis Fowl was Disney. And you can almost argue that Penguins is just another installment in the DisneyNature series of reality films.

I think my all time rewatches are Star Wars, Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, and The Goonies. Which I most recently watched at the weekend because the kiddo wanted to see it. Who was I to argue?


What about last five year releases?

Marty Mankins

Rewatched in the last 5 years for me include two you have on your list: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Adding to that for me would be both Guardians of the Galaxy movies. And The Martian.

All time: All 3 Back To The Future movies, Spaceballs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, True Romance, Empire Strikes Back, Almost Famous andThe Apartment.

As for Office Space, I own it digitally, but haven't watched it in over 2 years. Guess I need to remedy that.


I watched a VHS cops of Office Space to death. Bought a DVD copy and never watched it. So this digital copy is my first time really seeing it more than a decade. Still so good.
