Even more grand than before.
Pika, Pika, Pikachuuuuuuu!
Detective Pikachu was funny, sweet, and full of pokemon! Everyone should have a pokemon buddy!!! Wht a cute movie. Ryan Reynolds can do no wrong. (Although, I never saw Green Latern)
Yup, the two Ryans are the are the one Canadian export most Americans are ok with
I thought Green Lantern was ok, seen worse films.
I’ve always disliked golf games since the Leaderboard days.
So you can knock me over with a feather now I discovered Golf Blitz (available on iOS and Android). Arcade Multiplayer 2D golf game, give it a go!
I liked golf games well enough back in the day (home, not arcade). Which is funny, because I have no use for golf as a sport.
I liked the old Leaderboard games a lot. It was one of the few games I could play multiplayer with that my folks enjoyed. But it feel about as real as using a mouse to swing a club can. But Tiger Woods golf on the Wii with the Wiimote feels very close to the real thing. Haven’t played it in years. I wonder if there is something similar for the Switch?
Hubby came home last night with a heck of a cold. I’m letting him sleep in this morning
And, no school for the kids today. Most area school districts have canceled classes due to the heavy rain and flooding going on. Thankfully, we’re still high and dry.
I’m glad you guys are good. I’m sure the kids will enjoy the long weekend.
A Texas snow day! I do wish you guys the best, riding this one out.
Here, have some Friday weirdness. Just keep in mind … it can’t be unseen.
Ummm. Words fail me
Cool bit of Saxon history unearthed today:
I couldn’t find Biff Byford’s name in the entire article.
But the article does lend credence to the idea that the men of Essex get their kicks when they can.
I knew I could count on Rhett for that reference.
I brought him lunch in bed to help him get better
That’s awful. . . I hope he feels better soon. And doesn’t share.
Off to church!
How to shut down conversation…..
Hubby’s still not feeling well so I’m shopping for groceries on my own this morning
I made the mistake of seeing High Life, my advice is to never watch it..ever!
What’s wrong with it?
Tenacious D’s evil twin
Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers. Especially Tiffany! And Shaft.
What a lovely day it was today, thanks to my favorite man – Mr. Jack Mangan! And to my spunky little fast walker and fast talker – Holly!
Maybe that old saying about suckers was true:
This probably shouldn’t make me delighted. But it does.
The Twitter scuttlebut is that The Orville is going to get a S3.
It better!! I just got way too good
Just re-enacted the Monty Python Cheese Shop skit with a cranky teenager at Dunkin Donuts.
That’s more like it.
Robot solves Rubik’s Cube:
I know, as husband and wife, we are suppose to share everything, but I would have been happier if hubby didn’t share his cold with me
Actress Doris Day dies aged 97 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48257670
Halls have little motivational saying on their lozenges. Personally, the last thing I want to see when I have a cold is “you can do it and you know it”
*channeling my inner Van*
Thank you for echoing my sentiments on the peppy Halls wrappers. I’d like to slap executive who fancied himself a genius for pushing that idea.
But do feel better, Bunny.
Just keep up a positive attitude!
*slap the executive

That is the title of our next “Scream Metal” album.
I have to admit to humming the Tom Lehrer song as I started to watch this:

Gamespot’s game of thrones review was, once again, pretty close to th mark for me
That is almost exactly my feelings. I have no problems with Dani turning evil, but considering how long GOT spent on other minor character’s (I’m looking at you King Robert), it is a bit jarring to go full storm of Death, after only so recently defending Winterfell. Pacing and a bit of sloppiness are a bit disappointing for these last few seasons, but the cinematography has been epic. Plus there have been a handful of scenes that are among my favorites of the series. I still find it entertaining.
While the compressed schedule these last two seasons has made things feel more rushed, and the long break from season 7 dulled a lot of memories, I’ve seen a number of takes on this episode that callout that Daenary’s instincts have always been toward destruction and it has taken the combined efforts of her advisers over the years to resist them.
Now, with all of them dead, traitorous, or stupid (looking at you know nothing, Jon Snow) she’s been unleashed to be what she has always been trying to become.
Though, as a general continuity problem, I would be want to argue that will all the traipsing back and forth along the length of the seven kingdoms, it should be many months between the Battle of Winterfell and the Burning of King’s Landing. But, if that were true, Cercei should have been a lot closer to giving birth than she appeared in this episode. The passage of time on this show has definitely been problematic for a while now.
I’m listening to an interview with the director Werner Herzog and he sounds like he’s doing a bad Arnie expression.
I’ve seen a few of his documentaries. That’s exactly what he sounds like.
Today’s Halls motivational statement
Don’t try harder. Do harder
Isn’t that basically what Yoda says?
Hubby: you should be lying in bet
Me: I’d rather tell the truth
Bet = bed
I just assumed he had a very stopped up noze.
I guess the pun would get risque if he’d said “laying” in bed.
Which is the first thing on your mind when you feel all sicky and blech.
There is nothing more cruel than to ask a person who never self reflects to score their own progress.
Ah man … Tim Conway.
That man brought my family and I so much joy when I was growing up. My father didn’t watch much TV but I can remember watching the Carol Burnett show with him and Tim Conway would leave my dad in tears.
Yeah, it’s easy to forget what a huge deal he was in the 70s. I recall being starstruck by the elementary school janitor because he was Mr. Conway.
I’m sure the Apple Dumpling Gang are in mourning today. RIP
Loved him on Carol Burnett and just about everything else.
I think this is good news if the reins are tight on them, and they’re given strict scripts and directives.
If they’re allowed full control, then this is terrible news (based on how they’ve handled the post-GRRM GoT material):
One of the commenters suggested they adapt the original Knights of the Old Republic game story into a movie.
That would be utterly fantastic. Revan and Bastilla given a proper movie adaption. for D&D, it would have the advantage of the story pretty much laid out for them to follow.
I thought of this too! It would be perfect.
Knights could be cool. Wasn’t there a rumor that one of the television shows would be in that era? Don’t know.
Much like the video game “Tron 2.0” I’ve found the Jedi Knight games and X-Wing / Tie Fighter games with characters and plot structures better than many of the movie sequels. Star Wars is such a rich world, it has a lot of avenues to be explored with characters other than the known ones.
Up late – – did something tonight that I haven’t done in years.
No, not that.
I’m at my desk but I’m not happy about it.
Resist! Don’t let The Man oppress you!
I only put in an hour or so. I had to get some government forms done today. Now I’m drinking honey ginger tea and pretending the world doesn’t exist
It’s an excellent song – – but I’m also impressed at the money put into this video. CGI effects (a little cheesy, sure), actors, stunts, a narrative. Someone believes in this band.
Good song. Epic keyboard setup
I was impressed with the size of his snake.
If I was going to nitpick I would say John Wick 3 was a bit too long, but it was still a blast.
I also won’t nitpick John Wick like a nitwit, if I see it.
In hindsight, not nearly as clever a post as I thought. Disregard.
Tomorrow starts a four day long weekend for hubby and I.
We both need it.
It’s a trainwreck…
“Another especially weird angle here is that San Jose has been the beneficiary of the biggest questionable calls throughout this postseason, from a phantom major penalty call on Vegas’s Cody Eakin, to an extremely bullshit offside call on Colorado’s Gabriel Landeskog, to this. There’s no conspiracy—why on earth would there be one, and for the Sharks?—but try telling that to a team that ends up on the wrong side of the latest bad call.”
How did four officials miss that handpass? How is that not contestable?
It’s not because only if you literally threw the puck into the goal could a hand pass be reviewable. That’s what the NHL says. Here’s a great quote from the article pertaining to the “offside” goal review that went against the Avs …
“This is an unsatisfying explanation given that, just one week ago, the War Room in Toronto was allowed to review and overturn a goal because of something that had absolutely zero to do with the actual play. Meier’s, on the other hand, was a damned secondary assist.”
There’s gotta be consistency
So there’s a gang going through the area here systematically shoplifting clothing in size order. The police believe they are still at large.
Ask them for a coat.
That’s it. I think I’m done for the day. Me and my leaky nose are going to veg for the rest of the day
Brutal, Bunny. I hope relief is coming soon. 🙁
I talked to Brian Tatler of Diamond Head this morning! Super nice British guy. Did not remind me of Van this time.
In a strange, fun unplanned turn of events, I ran a quick errand afterwards, and Metallica’s “Am I Evil?” came on my playlist.
I am man.
RAD!! Stoked you got to talk with him. He’s legend level
The Tick has been cancelled:
Darn. We quite liked it
I mean it was brilliant so of course it was
I too am a fan.
We’ve started watching season four of Lucifer on Netflix
Intrigued. . . and it’s free.
I’ve read it, it’s cyberpunkish, just download the bloody thing.
Hell just read the first two pages to see if it will grab you.
I don’t know. . . . I need to mull it over some more. . . . 😉
I definitely will download tonight on the proper device.
I enjoyed it. There’s some interesting exploration for what “autonomy” means. /shrug
But, one of my favorite parts is reading the future description of a lot of places that I have visited.
Just got through the first two episodes of Chernobyl. Superb drama, but brutally depressing to watch it all unfold from the perspective of history.
HBO’s slogan should be: “Our Shows are Really Good and Depressing As All Hell. Except Curb Your Enthusiasm”
I was amused by a reply to your FB post about no spoilers.
lol. True, I’m just waiting for Rose to let Jack fall into the core and, years later, the diamond is thrown in as well. 😉
I’m more interested in the book, but I have to admit the series has intrigued me.
I cant even.
This is exactly why I have cut back so severely on Facebook.
I blocked his ass the last time we had a spat, Life is too short.
I’m going to do a Jack and ask if the new series based on Catch 22 is worth a watch?
I’m curious too. Funny semi-related story:
Years ago, when I was reading that book, someone saw me with and said, “Hey, that’s a great book! Did so-and-so die yet?”
And of course, no they hadn’t.
..and then the murders began.
My Dad was taking the dog out and got caught in the rain, we later learned the fallout from Chernobyl had hit the UK that day and the rain had made the contamination worse.
Grumpy Cat is gone..sniff:
New Rammstein album out today.
… but I’m sure you guys are already in line to pick up your copy.
CP: White Vertigo — Molice
I have missed you beautiful people. I think I had to take a beat after losing my mom in several facets of my life. The beat ended up lasting 2.5 years in this case!
I’m not sure how much I’ll be around, but felt compelled to drop in today! Loved reading the GoT discussion above.
Anybody here watch The 100?
I want to watch!
And welcome backish you beautiful you!
Yeah, losing your Mam is hard.
You just got to grieve at your own rate.
What Van said. No one dictates that but you.
Ladies and gentlemen… Mr. Robert Pattinson
DC makes me so happy with the Batgirl promo and so sad with this.
I don’t I’ve ever seen him in a good role.
Still pissed about High Life.
I’ve never seen him in a good role.
He was fine as Cedric Diggory.
Iron Man 1 still holds up.
A little slice of history:
‘What Remains of Edith Finch’ was one of the ‘free’ games on PS plus this month.
I’m not a great fan of walking simulator type games (although this does mix it up with some gameplay elements) but I found this one to be great. So good I had to play through it twice in case I missed something.
Walking simulator games?
To the Googles!
It’s strangely appropriate that autocorrect changes Ryah to Rush.
Why not? It’s all Canadian
(Fun fact: When hubby was in high school and college, his nickname was Geddy)

Happy birthday, JohnBoze (if you drop by – – otherwise, forget it)!
A console you’ probably never heard of:
The niece watched the baby for us to see John Wick 3. The least of the trilogy, but still a pretty great action flick. Some fun casting choices – – and one meh one.
Still haven’t seen/probably won’t see the second
Because you’re not interested? Or are you waiting for Alex Winter to launch his action franchise?
Time allows me precious few film viewings.
I just bought 4 tix for two nites of Electric Six shows and spent less than I did for 1 ticket to Ghost. WTF. THIS is why I usually skip big well known shows in favor of those smaller bands and smaller venues that make me happy
That being said 65$ for a ticket to Babymetal in a small venue is awful and aslo tempting…
Jealous. I’ve heard it is a fun show.
I dunno if I will cause of cost. Theyre in KC Sep 23!
I’m seeing a lot of griping on FB, but I thought that was a solid finale.
I don’t have HBO, so if I want to watch live I go over to a friend’s house. His wife is a comically stereotypical person that yells at the screen throughout any show. She was absolutely flipping out upset at the ending. I’m surprised I even heard enough of the dialogue to know what happened. However, I am in agreement with you that I thought it was pretty solid. Looking forward to some spoileriffic discussion. Probably wait another day or two to let others catch up.
BTW. I don’t think there is a way to end a series like that without pissing people off. No matter how it ends, there will always be a camp that’s pissed off. How is it that people liked this show for so may years because they couldn’t predict where things were going, and they get mad at the ending because it wasn’t exactly as they predicted.
Breaking Bad pretty much set the bar for that.
Last day of a four day long weekend
I hope you and hubby are starting to shake that cold!
Last night was the first night in a week I didn’t medicate before going to bed. I think it’s a start.
CP: There is Xxxx (Within My Heart) — You Say Party! We Say Die!
Temp went up to the mid 80’s … and our HVAC system died.
Looks like a week before anyone can give us a new unit install.
Should hit 90°F by mid week
Still waiting for the cost bids to come in.
For having a day off, I seem to be doing an awful lot of work. Why can’t you Americans take the same time off as us? Then I wouldn’t be getting phone calls from US vendors.
I think I’m done for the morning. Time to continue into my dive of Resident Evil 2 remastered
Tonight’s cult classic:
A case of:
That’s the guy from Vanilla Sky
That’s actress that sleeps with a sea monster
Ooh she’s from humans and Captain Marvel..
So this will not come as a big surprise:
Crap joke for the day:
A couple, both age 78, went to the office of a sexual therapist. The doctor asked:
– what can I do for you?
The man said:
– will you see us having sex?
The doctor looked puzzled but agreed
When the couple ended, the doctor said:
– there’s nothing wrong with how you have sex. – and charged them 50 €.
This happened several weeks in a row The couple was going to an appointment, had sex without problems, paid the doctor, then leave.
One day the doctor asked:
– exactly what are you trying to find out?
– we’re not trying to find anything, – he answered.
– she’s married and we can’t go to her house. I’m married and we can’t go to my house. Holiday Inn $90. The Hilton Cobra $108 . We do it here for $50 and I still get $43 back from Medicare.
