  • Taxes, Insurance, and TV

    I burned up my old tax documents from more than a decade ago. I could have shredded them, but it was a nice night for a fire. And the cat seemed to enjoy the show. This morning I had some weekend coffee, finished my taxes, paid my insurance bill, and played The Sims 4 for […]

  • The Man

    “The thing you don’t realize about “adulting” is just how constant it is. There is always something that needs to be done and so very many things that only you can address. Basically, “relaxing” is just short-hand for, I’m ignoring the half-a-million things I should be doing.” –Ronn McCarrick Did I mention that I watched […]

  • Prime Video Finds

    After another evening of watching Poledark with the lovely Lady Ronn, I was scrolling through Amazon Prime Video and came across something that I didn’t know existed. A documentary about the art of Dungeons & Dragons back in the old TSR days. I immediately started watching it, which probably was not appreciated by everyone in […]

  • GRCC Winter 2019

    Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year’s eve, and that the new year is treating you well. I’m back from my vacation. We went down to Florida and visited my mother and sister for Christmas, celebrated the New Year in West Virginia, and made it back in time for work on the […]

  • Three Films

    Hey, I watched some movies and I want to tell you about them. None of these three movies made me happy that I watched them. Logan came closest, but that was more from a sense of being in the loop with regard to superhero movies and the end of an era. I think I would […]

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Google Play offered me a $1.99 rental and this weekend the wife and I watched the latest spider-man movie. I was a little surprised, after all the talk about it being “the greatest superhero movie of all time, ever. So good. Great, really.” Or whatever it is that Trump had to say about it. I […]

  • Sequel to the Jungle Book?

    Just trying to be funny there folks. I know it’s not a sequel to Jungle Book. That kid was raised by wolves. This kid was raised by apes. I don’t think they were even in the same jungle. Though both were enjoyable movies in their own rights. Let’s talk about The Legend of Tarzan I […]

  • Immortal Cannibal

    He Never Died; I watched this movie tonight. Not really sure how I feel about it. There is part of me that thinks I should watch it again to see what I missed, but I don’t really want to watch it again. It was both interesting and entertaining in a what-the-hell kind of way. I […]

  • Tarzan

      Not too long ago I listened to the first two Tarzan novels on audiobook. In particular, I picked up The Tarzan Duology from audible,  narrated by Finn J.D. John. The books are pretty different from the old TV shows. In a ‘way better’ sort of way. With the 20% off coupon Barnes & Noble […]

  • April Fools and Star Wars

    Happy April 1st. I hope your day went well and that you didn’t get fooled to badly. I don’t have a prank for you today. But I do have a thing that might make you think I’m a little foolish in my thinking. I don’t know what makes Audible books different from Amazon movies, but […]

  • Terminator Salvation

    Sunday has apparently become movie day. So here we are another Sunday at the movies. Same cinema, different theater. This time we went all out and got soda and popcorn… it’s that kind of movie. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Terminator or any of its sequels. I liked Terminator, thought it was […]
