Yanno something? I don't think anyone even bothered to guess on last week's logo edition of Macro Monday. What a bummer. I even thought it was kinda easy. Oh well. Let's try to reboot it, okay? See you in a... Continue reading

Remember how gung-ho I was about War for the Planet of the Apes' release more than two months ago? Well, I finally saw it tonight on the big screen. Was it everything I hoped it would be? More. More daring.... Continue reading

If you've always been a fan, you have to give it a chance. My friend Marty likes it. Says it's not great but he likes it. Then there's another guy who went on a 19-tweet rant against it yesterday. I agree that many bands tend to have late career slumps. Then there's Veruca Salt that put out an album a couple years ago that I think is one of their finest! And Juliana Hatfield put out a solo album this year that is amazing. So it's just a matter of hit or miss.

It was a weird music day for me today. I was wrapping up a new paint job in our master bathroom and decided to take a listen to the new album Concrete and Gold by Foo Fighters. I have been... Continue reading

I thought it might be interesting to post my first photos on Flickr and Instagram as a Throwback Thursday this week. Why not, right? Here's what I'm fairly certain is my first Flickr image. You'd think it might be easier... Continue reading

Remember a while back when I asked if #YonduOnTerra could be my new #StorminNorman? Well, I took one giant leap towards legitimizing it. I made a new blog. Say hello to Yondu On Terra, a site dedicated to my Yondu... Continue reading

Weird because Feedly is based off Google Reader, too. Yours must just not like IG.

I was really worried about last week's Macro Monday challenge photo. I literally had someone guess it correctly within a minute of posting. But then no one else got it. Yup. A barrette. Not so tough, was it? How about... Continue reading

There are some things we would've done differently but otherwise it was great.

I'm just going to make it simple and give you a bunch of photos from our day. Getting ready for his family birthday celebration in Chicago. Hiding Yondu and skimming frosting. Where's Yondu? A Boy, A Man, and A Fish.... Continue reading

I did something last night I told myself I wasn't going to do. I had convinced myself I didn't want to do. I saw the remade version of It in theaters. I saw the original It years ago and was... Continue reading

I absolutely LOVE Easter eggs so long as they're unobtrusive to the story at hand. In Temple of Doom, when Indy and Willie go into the caverns off her (his?) room, there is a carving on the wall of C-3PO and R2-D2 but it doesn't do anything other than sit there. I guess, technically, that too would pull Earth into the SW canon. How else would the old Indians know if their existence to carve them on the wall. And by eight films, I meant the seven Skywalker saga films to date and Rogue One.
