While it's true that I've seen all the Harry Potter movies several times each, there's nothing quite like watching them with your own kiddo for the first time. I know I mentioned this before, but we've moved much farther along in the series than I ever expected us to do.
I finished a book!
An actual, physical, non-audio, non-graphic-novel book!
One of my old college roommates once subscribed to the belief that to be a fan of a general concept, you must be a fan of all specific instances of it. If that reads like mud, I apologize. I couldn't think of a better way to word it.
Katie decided tonight that, instead of watching something we have saved on Hulu or AT&T TV Now, we’d begin watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies in chronological order.
Nathan’s been editing his Spotify playlist a bit lately. Removing some old songs he doesn’t want to hear anymore, adding some new ones, reordering a little.
When Nathan and I have a little boy time, we like to go to our local comic shop. I really love that he’s into reading and that he digs comics and going to the shop with me. Seriously, I only have to whisper “comic shop?” and his eyes get big as saucers.
A couple days ago, a guy I know posted his 10 Movies to Know Me. In other words, these movies are so vital to him personally that understanding him requires an intimate knowledge of these films.
While browsing through Audible yesterday, I noticed something that always bugs me to no end. The changing of book covers to match a movie/TV poster or marketing campaign.
Back in December, I told you all that I was trying out some Great Courses lessons via Audible. Well, I did. And I quit.
It is a pretty super date, don'cha think? 02/02/2020... a perfect numeric palindrome... 02022020. I like when that sort of thing happens.
Katie and I are closing out January watching Knives Out. She saw it in theaters a few days ago. This is my first viewing. It’s an interesting whodunit.
As a library junkie, the husband of a library junkie, the father of a budding library junkie, and a former member of my local library's Foundation association, it warms my heart to no end to read this Gallup article about how library visits topped U.S. leisure activities in 2019, even outpacing visits to movie theaters and sporting events.
Remember how I said that Pearl Jam was going to be dropping a new single soon? That "soon" happened today with the release of "Dance of the Clairvoyants."
I need your input on something. I just got back from seeing the WWI movie 1917 and it was singularly amazing. Like so good it might have topped my K7 film list.
I just recently realized that I'm a bit behind on updating my Rankings lists. In fact, four of them need to be given some updates. And the justification for those updates I thought I'd do in the form of my first Snippets post of 2020!
At this point last year, I posted about upcoming films and had a list of 22 movies I wanted to see... just for the first half of the year!
I have a complicated history with The Office. I loved the first four seasons of the NBC show; some of the best television ever made. But the final five seasons are a mixed bag; some is borderline good, some decent, but most is absolute crap.
