I gotta admit, the more I learn about CBS's Star Trek Discovery, the more I'm looking forward to it.
Anybody want to do a podcast with me? The topic is very much up for discussion. Or we could just do one on random stuff (although that does make it much harder to market and gain sponsors and whatnot).
The last two weeks of Macro Monday have been disappointing in terms of guesses. Are they too difficult? I'm hoping not.
Happy Father's Day to my dad, my grandpa, my brother, and my father-in-law. I love you all and am eternally grateful for everything you have ever done and continue to do for us.
Take it from wise ol' Uncle Kappy, kids... when you want to get back into reading, the worst thing approach you can take is to try to read four books all at the same time.
I really don't think there's any better way to commemorate the life of Adam West than the way the City of Los Angeles chose to do.
As stated on Instagram, if ever there was question as to where my Marvel vs. D.C. loyalty would lie, it was answered very early on in my life.
Nathan is asleep and Katie is at the movies with the SiL so I decided to fire up an old favorite... Tombstone. To this day, my favorite western and one of the greatest action films ever. Kurt Russell is a stud.
Yes, a second trip into Chicago in as many weeks. Why? 200 PTO hours accrued at work, that's why. But why would you complain? You get photos of sweet cityscapes!!
I actually only had two people submit guesses last week. Two!! Marty was closest with a stab at an NHL logo. It was, in fact...
This has been the official default license plate for Illinois residents for about a decade or more.
I don't know if anyone has broached this subject yet, but I need to know... is Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Benjamin Button of a galaxy far, far away?
Could #YonduOnTerra be my next #StorminNorman?
Do you amass digital copies of movies like Katie and I do? On the semi-rare occasion that we actually buy movies to keep, we actively seek out combo packs that come with, at the very least, Blu-ray and digital versions of the film. Even better is when it has a DVD copy. Not that we ever use the DVD copy if we have Blu-ray. I mean, why would you?
With no TV shows recording at the moment, things have been kinda slow with viewing. It's funny that my complaining about TV has gone a full 180 from when I did nothing but whine about wanting more time back.
You know those Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tube Man things in front of car dealerships and new stores when they open? These...
Last week's Macro Monday challenge photo was waaaayyyyy too easy. I don't think anyone missed it.
After a couple weeks of nothing but LEGO movies including the feature film as well as Batman and Scooby Doo variants, we felt it was time for a detox.
News from two of my favorite podcasts within about a day of each other announcing their returns for season two in the coming weeks/months? Oh it's a good thing, indeed!
And when you're in Chicago all day walking everywhere, you wind up doing this...
I was checking out Facebook when I came across this gem from 2011 that was created by the splendid LeSombre. It's his homage to Reservoir Dogs featuring all his geeky friends. I was honored to be counted amongst them.
This was my day...
Remember a few weeks ago when Katie and I had HBO free for a weekend and I detailed a bunch of movies I recorded to our DVR? It took some time, but I finally got a chance to get through several of them.
A lot of guesses last week for knives of various sorts. Alas, it was not.
When I was young, I was pretty big into the slasher horror films of the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. I loved the mainstay characters like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Tall Man, Pinhead, Chucky, and the like. I was in heaven anytime they were available to watch.
The pool is finally open!!
Recently, Katie decided she wanted to start binge watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Neither of us have ever seen it before and she's loving it so far.
40 years ago today, life began for geeks the world over... Star Wars came out in theaters. It was the first of five theatrical releases of the original movie (not including the revised versions Lucas dropped on us in the 90s).
Nathan is watching The LEGO Movie again today. As I sat here watching it with him, it dawned on me that this movie is a more fun, family-oriented version of The Matrix.
Judge us if you must, but Katie and I watched pretty much the entirety of this season of Dancing with the Stars because we wanted to root for our Cubbie homer David Ross.
This Macro Monday was clearly way too easy as two people had it within a minute of me posting it.
Before I get into the guts of this post, I have to wish a happy birthday to my mom who turns... I'll stop myself there. Happy birthday, mom!
Have you ever heard of Russell Walks? If you're not familiar with him and consider yourself a fan of Star Wars and other forms of pop culture, you really should be.
The other day, Kevin Spencer treated us to a rare, non-photo blog post asking us to rank five technology giants based on our likelihood of ever giving them up. I promised in his comments that this was going to be a blog post of my own, so here it is...
If the spam folder of my primary email account is to be believed, I owe some women a lot of apologies. Check out these gems I found this morning...
