We finally cleared away enough stuff that we have begun using our kitchen table for puzzles again! Huzzah!
You ever have this happen to you?
Nope. No surprise here whatsoever…
So there’s a new service called Instafest that can link to either your Spotify or Last.fm account and create a pseudo festival poster based on the artists you listen to the most.
Not that Nate doesn’t always enjoy going to C2E2, but something tells me he’s really gonna be jazzed about this one…
I’ve been accepting book recommendations lately from a variety of people. I was interested in something new and needed gift ideas for my upcoming birthday and Christmas.
Listening to Matthew Perry’s memoir Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing makes me so happy I’ve never personally had to deal with the sort of addiction Perry faced.
While perusing Max – the streaming service, not some random dude – last night, I saw a featured title that piqued my curiosity… David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived.
In 2011, I got back into comic books for about the bajillionth time in my life but this was the one that stuck. I’ve stayed fairly consistent for 12.5 years now.
Poor Nathan. He can’t sit at the cool kids table.
This is the Target-exclusive Jamie Tartt Funko POP statue from the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.
Over the years since Nate got his first Nintendo Switch console, he’s collected a bunch of games to play on it.
I’m watching Paranormal Activity 2, which is supposed to be thought of as a found-footage film about a family whose new house in ritzy Calabasas, CA, is haunted and we find out at pretty much the same time they do.
First and foremost… HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
Here in Illinoisland, we trick or treated in some strange and quickly changing combination of blue skies and cool air as well as gray skies, snow, and high wind. And we were only out about an hour and a half. Weird.
…we lose a Friend.
This weekend, we lost our first primary cast member from Friends, Matthew Perry. Chandler Bing himself.
I decided to take all the books I could find that I have amassed recently and throw them in a must-read stack. It’s… big. Bigger than I expected. And it does not include graphic novels, e-books, or audiobooks.
Remember that show Designated Survivor with Kiefer Sutherland where he became president of the US because he was like 72nd in the line of succession after the entirety of the government was wiped out by a terrorist attack?
Polygon has released a day-by-day list called The Halloween Countdown that highlights some of the scariest stuff you can watch. As you'll see, "scariest" is definitely subjective. But what I like is that it's pretty diverse.
Katie and I were caught off-guard this weekend when we looked in our cloud DVR and discovered that we had actual scripted TV shows in there waiting for us. Particularly, a couple episodes from this the final season of Magnum, P.I.
So how do Katie and I spend a Thursday night after Nate finally falls asleep?
I was checking out my fantasy football (U.S.) team and noticed something weird...
Oh crap! I may have to add something to my October reading list. This is a must-read for this, the spookiest of all months!
I didn’t think I was going to do it. On the 25th, I had it in my head that I had zero books read this month with about four that I’d partially started. But I discovered that I actually had read one back on the first and then I hunkered down and made the rest happen with the final one wrapping about 30 minutes ago.
ABC canceled Home Economics?!?!
Somebody I follow on Instagram on my hobby account posted this today. He doesn't know who the source is, but I may try to Google it once I transcribe this all off the screen cap he posted. It's all about Geek Nation vs. politics and the morons who say their childhoods have been raped and pillaged by "wokeness."
There’s no better way to shoot a reading goal in the foot than by getting caught up binging a streaming series with multiple seasons available all at once.
Not that I actually expect to score any, but I have officially registered through Ticketmaster for the chance to get in an early queue to buy tickets to Olivia Rodrigo’s concert at United Center in Chicago next March 19.
A major brouhaha is erupting out of this situation in which actors Ashton Kutcher and Mika Kunis, along with Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith, wrote character letters in support of former costar Danny Masterson during the sentencing phase of his multiple rape conviction trial.
Aw man! I completely forgot that I pre-ordered a book from one of my favorite authors Clay McLeod Chapman. Until, that is, it arrived today at my doorstop from Amazon.
And the Chicago Bears start their season with a 20-38 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Sorry. Please allow me a moment to compose myself.
As I posted on Saturday, Nathan and I went out to Spirit Halloween and American Science & Surplus checking out Halloween costumes and decorations and the like. He's been struggling trying to figure out what to dress as this Halloween so I thought we could take a look at what was available.
Today, we took advantage of the $4 tickets being offered for National Cinema Day and went to see Jurassic Park on the big screen in THREE DIMENSIONS!!!!
Another free trial we received with the purchase of our Rogue is three months of Sirius/XM satellite radio. We've gotten this with each of our Hyundai Sonatas as well and we use it. It's actually kinda nice to have a reliable radio-esque signal no matter where we are in our car.
I just got all three of the canon films of The Lost Boys to watch digitally.
