For more than twenty years, I've been going out with friends from college for a drink on Monday nights...
Naturally, this realization made wearing my Gryffindor socks today a clear imperative.
The one productive thing I did yesterday in the midst of watching the Bengals get embarrassingly trounced at home was to prep the garage for winter. See, I don't park the ole Middle-Aged Man Sedan in the garage during the temperate months because there's bikes and sportsing gear and swimming accessories, and, well, a vast … Continue reading Because Gondolas Don’t Have Windshields
Sitting out on the patio a little later than usual tonight, but given that today's socks are in honor of everyone's favorite Dark Knight, it seemed to make sense*. The twist is that's not just a reference to Batman, the character. I mean, sure, who doesn't love the Caped Crusader and his wacky crime-fighting, but … Continue reading A Dark Night For The Dark Knight
Somebody took a couple of his kids to see a dinosaur movie this week. Spoiler alert: the movie was Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the kids were Sons, 14 and 9. Thoughts about the film after said viewing were mixed; I said to the kids as we walked out into the harsh light of afternoon, … Continue reading These Dinosaur Socks Are Certified Fresh
Socks for Cap. They matched my shirt. Truth be told, though, I've always been a bigger fan of Iron-Man. Thankfully, sides no longer matter. Not pictured in the foreground of today's selection: the screen rolling credits for Avengers: Infinity War. It was everything I hoped it would be. My only complaint is that I won't … Continue reading Expectations Assembled
I am so ridiculously excited about the release of Avengers: Infinity War (and getting to see it tomorrow), I had to represent with today's sockage. I don't have any actual Avengers socks, sadly (because, well, movie licensed stuff ain't cheap, yo), but I felt pretty good poppin this pair of planets. After all, Thanos, the … Continue reading Infinity Socks
I've never rented a movie a didn't finish. Luckily, modern day streaming rentals are typically 48 hours. Just as the Batman usually needs a second encounter to vanquish a villian, I always conquer a rental on the second go 'round. Oh, and for the record: the new Jumanji movie is a solid flick. It gets … Continue reading Take Two
I seem to recall swearing up and down not even a month ago that I was going to reset my evening activity schedule and commit to writing and/or reading instead of spending three hours staring, slack-jawed, at a screen full of bright colors and explosions. In fact, there’s probably evidence of said promise in the … Continue reading Lies, Damned Lies, and Star Wars
I waited an inordinately long time to see Interstellar, and I’m kind of ashamed of it. This is geek stuff! Spacey! Futurey! Black Holey! Einsteiny! It’s my bread and butter, my mother’s milk. A space movie with breathtaking space, actual characterization, solid dialogue and potentially even science? And from Christopher “Memento/Dark Knight/Inception” Nolan, even! If … Continue reading A Movie In 100 Words Or Less: Interstellar
