I really kinda knew that last week’s #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo would not likely be guessed correctly.
It really sucks when something that you’ve been looking forward to for a long, long time completely blows and disappoints the heck out of you in ways you couldn’t even fathom.
Take a tip from a pro, kids... When you make something in a blender and pour it in one of those Blender Bottles and then decide to put it back in the real blender to give it some more spin, make sure you remove that metal whisk ball before you push the start button. Oy.
It’s kinda cool the stuff you find when you clean out something like, say, the trunk of your car.
Seeing as how tomorrow is his last day as a Kindergartener, it seemed appropriate to spend this Throwback Thursday wishing this year didn’t go by so quickly.
Finally watched BlacKkKlansman. Such an amazing film. While it saddens me to think that our world has a need for heroes such as Ron Stallworth, I’m glad they exist.
Katie and I desperately want to extend the wifi signal in our house. It just doesn't reach as well, say, upstairs in our bedroom as we'd like. It was fine before. But now that we're relying 100% on streaming for our TV habits, we need a better one to avoid buffering and display artifacting and the like.
Katie's cousin Stacey was Johnny on the spot with the answer to last week's #MiniMusicMonday.
The second you lose sight of a blogging goal -- in my case, daily blogging -- it's amazing how quickly and easily it can all go to hell in a handbasket. Two days! I accidentally saved in draft status for two days!
I really didn’t want to do this recap already. Feels like it may be frighteningly lackluster. Hold tight!
I did something today that I haven’t done in probably 20-odd years... I set foot in a hobby shop. I’m talking a me hobby shop (models, r/c, trains, etc.), not that place that has Hobby in the name, claims to be Christian, and smuggles religious artifacts to the states illegally.
As I finally got off my butt and bought my ticket for Sunday at Pitchfork Music Festival, which is securely stored in my Wallet app...
A friend of mine retweeted the following from author Dayton Ward...
I had a whole Tu(n)esday post set to go tonight. Then, as I wrote it, I decided I hated it. And summarily deleted it.
I really thought last week’s #MiniMusicMonday was a gimme, especially given the lyrical clues I threw your way. Still, no one got it.
I attached my GoPro camera to the front of my R/C truck and had some fun racing around during my lunch break at work. It was fun having a really fast snake’s eye view.
Most parents, upon pawning off their kid(s) to their parents (the kids’ grandparents) would do something romantic or exciting or fun.
I’ve found some new videos that are pretty interesting. I thought I’d share them with you as well because I’m good like that!
I ran out of cloud storage space in Dropbox years ago. The curse of low capacity and the unwillingness to pay for added space. So I don’t really go in the app much as a result.
A couple months ago, Netflix hit us with a new action-adventure movie titled Triple Frontier. It’s the story of five former U.S. Special Forces soldiers who set off to South America to steal millions from a cartel drug lord. Then we view the immediate consequences of their actions.
This is one of my favorite Taped hauls in a while. I’ve actually been sitting on it for a while because it’s been a slow build. Two of my favorite bands well represented...
I promise! No more sequential number gags! Really!
It was an oddly, er, productive evening last night?
Flying solo tonight. Nathan is at an overnight cousins birthday party for one of our nieces and all three of the kids wanted their moms along.
‘Tis the season for TV show cancellation announcements. I tend to enjoy this time of year because I like to see how much of my life I can get back each week by not having to watch old shows.
Word dropped late tonight that Hollywood found its new Batman... Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame. The backlash has been quick and severe.
It drives me crazy when an organization (that will go unnamed) asks for an "optional" donation as part of a registration process, but, in order to do literally anything within that org, you have to give them exactly the amount they request as optional. It's clearly "mandatory," so call it a "fee" already. Don't insult my intelligence. Or my bank account.
As noted by Eve on GeeksofDoom.com, yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of the release of the film The Crow. If you haven't seen it, the film is about a musician named Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) who, one year after he and his fiancee are killed by a gang of criminal scum on Devil's Night, is resurrected by a crow to exact vengeance on those who wronged him. It is dark. It is gritty. It is brutal. It is emotional. It is gorgeous.
I wonder if I can get this done in time to post it at 7:19, because that would be geeky cool. I didn’t get the cool sequencing last week.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and grandmas and aunts and caregivers and whomever else is out there serving in our hearts as a "mum."
I guess since the company working on installing new roofs on our home have done this...
Is it cruel if I tap into the microphone on my Nest doorbell and start doing satanic chants right now?
Or should the title be "whisky"? I'm told by Google that the Irish spell it with an "e" while the Scots do not. As I have a modicum of Irish heritage, I'll use the "e". Dat cool?
Last night, I saw Avengers: Endgame for the second time. Since my Wife went with our SiL to see it and then I saw it with a coworker last week, it was my brother’s turn and I saw it with him.
Twitter has been alight with tweets about Disney’s announced movie lineup for the next eight years. I took a look to see what all the buzz was.
