I have not watched Mad Max yet. All I know is that the reviews are through the roof on it. I am willing to admit that I thought it looked terrible in the previews. I have only been fooled one other time in the history of my career of movie watching. That was on Guardians of the Galaxy. We all know how that turned out.
Mad Men is over. I thought it ended brilliantly. Terrific show like nothing else on TV right at the moment. Mad Men was all about character building through realistic story-telling. It’s one of the few shows that doesn’t go into the dramatic soap opera type stories to get ratings. See every CW show for details. Farewell to Don Draper and the glorious characters. It was a good run.
Game of Thrones is taking quite a bit of heat for this past episode (I won’t spoil it.) If you realistically can’t believe that this would happen than maybe you have been desensitized to everything else that happens within this show. Constant death and torture. There are no rules when it comes to Martin’s books or the TV show. Have you not figured this out yet?
The fire John Gibbons rants have started. If you watch baseball and believe that every time that the Blue Jays step on the field and are not at a disadvantage; I would like to challenge you to a duel. You give me who you believe is the worst manager in baseball, and I will bet you they would have a better record at the end of the year than the John Gibbons managed team. Former Listowel Legionnaires managers are also included in this.
Going Clear Scientology and the Prison of Belief – 9.3/10
This is a maddening and sometimes hilarious documentary on the outrageous belief in Scientology. If the only reason that you watch it is because of your hatred for Tom Cruise you will not be disappointed.
Have you ever watched what a pitchers arm does in slow-motion, when a pitcher uncorks a 95MPH fastball? It’s actually a bit disgusting. You can understand all of the Tommy John going on.
Top 3 stories that I have heard about hiking recently that makes me wonder about people.
1. A kid from Arizona was beginning his hike on the PCT (This is a 2650 mile journey) had to be airlifted out 12 hours into the hike. He was starting to feel dehydrated and was almost running out of water. He couldn’t find any water and didn’t pack enough.
2. 22 year old man was killed by a bear in NJ while trying to take a selfie with it approaching him.
3. I was walking through Rattlesnake Point and witnessed a woman with a man trying to do the hike in high heels. She must have thought she was at the Cannes Film Festival.
To the people that write graffiti on the walls of bathroom stalls. We are not paying attention anymore. We have our phones. You can stop it.
Has anybody seen Spamalot? Sara and I are thinking about going this week. I love everything to do with Monty Python, but balk at musicals.
The most dangerous place I have been recently is on the next hole over at River Edge Golf Course when 4 guys were teeing off with out of control swings that created a wicked slice off of an elevated tee block. They had the get around a big belly swing.
I think when parents say to their child. “Are you pleased with yourself” in a certain tone; 50% of the time the child is pleased with themselves, but will not say it due to the fact that they might receive further punishment.
Handbags? What is the deal? What do I not understand about them? How could they possibly cost $500? Why can’t you use a $25.00 handbag to carry whatever you carry in them? These are questions to the women or men that love handbags.
Silicon Valley is back. They created a character I believe you get to meet in episode 3 of the second season that is brilliant. You will know instantly who I am talking about once you meet them.
I am not a huge fan of CGI. Especially if the scene can be made without using it. I feel like this is how the world is now. If we can find something easier and cheaper than the real thing than let’s do that. Food is probably the biggest culprit.
Nascar had another near death from their drivers. You know that any professional sports that have concussion issues are fine until they decide to ban this sport.
You never really understand those laundry commercials that have people smelling their clothing until you actually use one of those detergents. Yes, my apartment does smell like a spring day with golden haired girl that looks like she is from the ‘50s running around my backyard trying to catch the golden lab with a tennis ball in it’s mouth.
