Coincidence is always a great thing, especially when it comes to LEGOs.

Here is another movie that I have seen so many times that I should have taken a guess at this one.

I am bummed that I missed this one. Fletch was one of my often watched movies for many years.

Appropriate posting a LEGO subject blog post on the 64th birthday of the brick. I approve of any Roy Kent GIF.

For your personal MacBook Pro, I would go no further than macOS Big Sur 11.6.2. It's pretty stable and there are not a lot of new changes that Monterey has made. For the most part, I've seen several issues and articles on Monterey and trying to get fixes and stability changes in place. Curious, what macOS version is your personal MacBook Pro at?

First off, I am no fan of the current Rogan. News Radio Rogan, Fear Factor Rogan and UFC post fight mic guy Rogan are all what I like. This BS conspiracy theorist Rogan is a POS. As for the Neil Young/Joe Rogan/Spotify battle, I would like to see Spotify post disclaimers about the content. Not censorship but at the same time, making at least some kind of statement that the BS Rogan keeps posting is his own words and they do no endorse it. Young obviously has his stance and as of today, his music is leaving Spotify. I like Neil Young and most of his music. But sometimes he can play that hard line that ignores speech of others, even if it is vile and disgusting on many levels.

One of these years (maybe for the end of 2022) I will start blogging a year end for movies and TV shows. I like that you and Dave2 have done this for years. I was late to the Ted Lasso game, but quickly embraced it after watching both seasons. So good. We shared our like of the "Rainbow" episode on Twitter. Can't wait for Season 3. On your movie list, I've seen Luca and Dune. Didn't make it to the theater to see Spider-man yet. The other movies on your list will have to be watched via streaming (as some are already out)

I was refunded that same day they cancelled (it was through Eventbrite.com). Now just have to wait for them to announce a new date (hoping for when it is warmer here)

I would have seen them twice, but they had to cancel their SLC date earlier this month due to snow storm coming from Denver.

CHVRCHES also did well with Dave2 as it is on his list (out today, as is mine)

I'm ok with the consolidation of Audio, Video and Words. As for audio music, CHVRCHES "Screen Violence" is going to be a part of my yearly Top Albums post on my blog.

And a Happy Birthday wish via a blog comment (in addition to the other wishes via other digital communication avenues)

Wow. 15 years. For me, it's coming up on 3 years since Dave2 had an in person event here in SLC.

Congrats to you. Sounds like a good company to land at.

I don't believe it does. They are in the same chilled area as the kombucha drinks at the grocery store.

Yeah, my time with Mac laptops is around 6 years. This one turns 6 years old in June so a replacement is being planned. It still works great, has had a couple of repairs (battery replacement and keyboard replacement). It might be years before the replacement gets a sticker.

Wow. Such a great sticker collection. I have a lone sticker on my 2015 MacBook (which I blogged about here http://www.banalleakage.com/2020/12/02/my-first-laptop-sticker/ ) I might add more, but still not sure on that at this time.

My daughter likes kombucha a lot. I've tried it, but not to my liking. There are some probiotic drinks that I have every so often but limited to lime and cherry flavored and only one brand (Kevita)

I use Libby, but the format of how the pages are is a tad confusing depending on the title. I admit to preferring Kindle for library ebook borrowing. Libby and Overdrive are better options for audiobooks.

With Chris having been gone 4 years now, this post is a sad timing of his immense talent.

Great MFS song choice for RHCP. I bought Mother's Milk on CD at Tower Records in Las Vegas a few months after it came out (also my first RHCP album) and played the hell out that album for a long time. This album also started the great lineup that continues on today (after many guitarist changes over the last 25+ years).

I love those Taco Flavored Doritos. Glad they are a regular item in the chip aisle. I've had that Pepsi Throwback before. It's pretty good.
