August 2nd – The day after the 1st…

mushu

Good day! Thank you for reading today’s blog post or posts…depending upon how motivated I let myself get. For those intently wondering, there are still no leaked reports to the interweb about a possible Snakes on a Plane 2 movie script or Broadway hopeful play script. I’ve tried to leak one myself but the web at large has categorically rejected it. C’mon how hard can that script be to do? The first one got made and the premise there was toilet paper weak.

Silly Friday!!!

Here is what I posted on my Facebook account today for giggles:

Can anyone give directions to Braavos? Someone needs to travel there to begin training as a Faceless Man. Asking for a friend…

Dead Space Four

Dead_Space_4_open

Good morning or afternoon or twilight or darkness hours or whatever suits your present time situation. We collectively have edged into the second half of the month of July. This year has seemed to fly by quite quickly. Sometimes that is a good thing. There are people in the world healing from sickness and injuries and of course time is needed for that process to move along. For those with accrual time off systems through their workplace, that is also good so they can get more time off or eek out the time left until their time off ‘bank’ is replenished. (Raises hand) This last one is near and dear to my heart I must sadly report. Continue reading “Dead Space Four”

Happy Friday the 13th (2018)

Today is Friday the 13th. We have a weekend of leisure planned involving quasi-camping in a remote woodsy area. Probably do some drinking, engage in some adult shenanigans and play by the water. Seems like a great time, I’m sure nothing will go awry. Continue reading “Happy Friday the 13th (2018)”

Masterpiece Theater

Hello PBS fanatics!

Wait! I was kidding! Don’t go!

Good morning and happy post July 4th extended weekend shenanigans. To those people in my subdivision who waited until 10:30 pm last night (Sunday night) to exhaust the last of their July 4th fireworks stash, bravo. I especially liked their finale that wrapped up around 11:10 pm. Fireworks that screech and scream before exploding are always welcomed after 11 pm when I have already put the child to bed and there is a non-declawed cat sitting in my lap that is prone to being spooked easily. Again, bravo douchebags. Continue reading “Masterpiece Theater”

Jurassic Tuesday

Good afternoon!

Tonight I am supposed to drive to the stadium to see my Indians play the Cardinals but Mother Nature seems a bit weepy so the game may be delayed or postponed. If such should happen, my backup plan would be to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom again!  Continue reading “Jurassic Tuesday”

Oh Captain, My Captain…GOAL!

Happy Friday and joyous Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Day to you! As most of the free world is engrossed with the FIFA World Cup (First In, First Asleep?), I was searching Netflix and Hulu streaming services for Jurassic Park or similar movies to have on as background noise at work. With the exception of the Lego version of Jurassic World, I struck out. For those regular readers of my blog, you already know my feelings on the Lego movies and their toys. Regular building block Legos are fine but all the Lego ships and beasts that just lose pieces or get de-constructed makes them be pointless in my opinion! And as far as the Lego movies go, just make them ‘real’ animation or don’t. There is no need to block the characters up in a Lego-like semblance – it’s not needed!

Originals versus The Covers

Good morning! Welcome to my blog. As usual I have my own agenda and linear (into un-linear) thought process. This morning sitting in the car driving into work, I heard a song on the radio. The song I heard was from 1986, the band was Genesis and the song was Land of Confusion. Since that song was recorded over 30 years ago (wow, that hurt to type) there have been a few ‘covers’ of that song done. When I say covers, I mean of course that another band performed and recorded the song with their artistic touches added; or they were just trying to play the tune to the best of their abilities with the lead singer’s vocals to add a different sort of flair to the original (wooooo!). I already had a couple of topics in mind to blog about today but this concept jumped to the front of the line over the other contenders. So I present for your consideration and judgment(s) eight examples of fairly well-known songs that were remade or covered. I further weigh in on which version I prefer and any other tidbits I may find noteworthy. With prolonged ado, ado, ado, ado and ado…I give you these eight songs:

Stuff on my Desktop

Tuesday clean up in progress! It’s time to delete some of the silly stuff I saved to my desktop over the last few days. Feel free to interpret or judge as you will!

Hi to all those not disturbing the mojo of other people for no reason!

Peace

If I had five million dollars…

Good morning and welcome to June 5th 2018. What’s news and interesting? Do you know Bill Gates? Asking for a friend.

A Holiday Weekend in May

Good afternoon and welcome to the last Tuesday in May 2018 of your lifetime! I tried to come up with something clever and catchy for the title but as of the writing of this part…I hadn’t tapped into anything yet. Maybe it will just come to me. Time will tell.

Paper Airplanes

Sometimes it seems like nothing, and I mean virtually nothing, is within our control. At times like these I fall back on a sentiment from a cheesy little movie I truly enjoy called The Replacements. The main character in the made-up football flick is Shane Falco. During the course of the movie we get bits and pieces of his current life and the backstory that the ‘present day’ person is built upon. Shane’s character has a minute in time where he is addressing his teammates in the locker room. This is a vulnerable moment where he relays a fear to try to unite his teammates. His analogy is about the pitfalls of his playing career. He labels his fear: quicksand; I’ve stolen the passage and pasted it below: Continue reading “Paper Airplanes”

GOT  DRAGONS? – GAME. OF. THRONES.

Hello! Today is May 22nd 2018 A.D.

As of the writing of this blog post I have seen up through season 7 episode 1 of The Game of Thrones HBO series. There are six more episodes on the DVDs at home if I recall correctly. For the avid fans, you are probably like “what the heck is taking you so long to finish those?” While I do enjoy the series, I will admit I find the seasons to be a grueling grind at times. So often the show’s writers revel in killing off characters, after it took so much effort for me to finally appreciate them for their badness or goodness. It is reasonable to understand that the loss of a notable character creates drama and impact, but sometimes the deaths and innumerable weddings tend to blend together in an inevitable conveyor belt process that chafes just as pressing exposed skin against a cycling belt sander ribbon.

May the 4th…

Stop right there. I know mentally there are some of you already gearing up your Star Wars references. I’ve been on Facebook and Twitter since early this morning so the bombardment has only grown in momentum. But if you must, go ahead and sling about your Star Wars forced fourth references.

Collage Day – Aim Low!

Sad to say this was the extent of my focus ability towards ye old blog today. In between I looked for Dodgeball (the movie) on Netflix, Hulu and YouTube but came up with nada in the for free arena. I did find a jacked up version on YouTube and made that work.

So as I traverse to towards personal insanity (only 16 days until the Fusco Memorial Softball Tournament) I warmly wish you a good evening and hopefully your forthcoming Friday is of superior quality to the those shoddy ‘other’ days of the week.  🙂

Cheers! And Peace.
