Hi everyone, Welcome back for another discussion about "A Million Little Things." We've only got two episodes left in season one. (Or is it already season two? More on that in a bit.) This week's show gives us a little stalking, a look at the power of faith (however you define it), and a number of people feeling invisible. Let's jump right in... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: Rome gets the opening voice-over this week. It seems like whoever gets this spot gets a lot of attention in the episode, so we're off to a good start. We're assuming Drea de... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on the schedule for the weekend? I don't think we've got anything major planned here at the moment. It might be a good time to catch up on some Netflix. We were just talking about how nice it is that the sunrises are noticeably earlier these days. I think we can turn off the lights about 30 minutes earlier in the morning than we used to, which is terrific. BDH and Little Buddha decided they wanted to celebrate this fact with some coffee. They just made a fresh... Continue reading

Look out, brother: It's being reported that Chris Hemsworth will play the immortal Hulk Hogan in a biopic for Netflix. This should be something to check out. Hemsworth has already demonstrated with his portrayal of Thor that he's got the size, charisma, and sense of humor to play a larger-than-life figure. The movie will be directed by Todd Phillips, he of The Hangover fame. Phillips is also good with comedy and loud entertainment, so that also works. Our question is about the script. The movie will reportedly be written by Scott Silver and John Pollano. We don't know either of... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's a little messy outside at the moment. We had a moderate amount of snow overnight, and I think it turned into freezing rain at some point. Today's high is supposed to be almost 50 degrees, so this should all disappear pretty soon. For now, BDH and Little Buddha want to hang out with you and the Clutter Tree, see what's going on in the world, and enjoy some coffee. Sounds good to me. They just made said coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We were just talking about the fact that it's already February 20th. I think this month goes by so quickly mostly because of our excitement over BDH's birthday, and then spring training starts soon after that. Of course, there's also the fact that the sunsets are about an hour later now than compared to the earliest ones of the year, and that's just outstanding. Not having to turn on the lights at 4:30 in the afternoon does wonders for the soul. You know what else does wonders?... Continue reading

Those of us who grew up as fans of the hair metal era in the 1980's will always have a soft spot in our hearts for Motley Crue. Their hair was high, the look androgynous at times, and the music was catchy and over-the-top rock. The band was "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" taken to the extreme, but their songs have staying power. Even some 34 years after it was released, "Home Sweet Home" evokes strong memories of the time as you sing along. The same is true for "Kickstart My Heart," which came out in 1989. In addition...

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Things are pretty good on this end at the moment. We had a productive day yesterday, which was nice. A couple of things need to be taken care of today, and there doesn't seem to be any snow coming in the next 24 hours, so no complaints here. Of course, it always helps when the guys make coffee, and speak of the devil, they just walked in with a fresh pot! Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Sixteen states are suing Donald Trump over his emergency... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We're supposed to get a little bit of snow today, though it doesn't look like much has fallen yet. I've got a few errands to run, but I just remembered the businesses might be closed for Presidents' Day. Hmm. Well, there are still a couple of things that can be taken care of from the office, but it might ended up being a movie day for our staff. Speaking of BDH and Little Buddha, they say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD,... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're still doing a little birthday celebrating for BDH here, which has been fun. He and Little Buddha do so much around Clutter Headquarters, it's a treat to be able to celebrate them now and again. It's also nice to have a party to help power through this point in the winter. We even had a few birds return from down south to join the festivities! Of course, once these festivities wrap up, we still have Little Buddha's birthday to celebrate at the end of August. Besides all of the hardcore raging, it's... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back for another chat about the latest episode of "A Million Little Things!" We're heading into the final stretch of season one, and while a number of questions have been solved, there seem to be new ones popping up every week. It just so happens that episode 15 aired on Valentine's Day. Is that good or bad for this group? Let's discuss: Warning: Spoilers Ahead Observations: Eddie gets this week's opening voice-over. You know how we feel about Eddie, so this is not a good sign, but let's continue... What exactly is that toy Linda is playing... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? I'm sure we'll extend BDH's birthday celebration for a few more days. He had a good day yesterday, and he wanted me to tell you how nice it was to hear from so many friends. That's really his most favorite part of his birthday, so thank you to everyone who made him smile even more than usual. Of course, we need to take a look at the headlines before we get back to the party. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee (which... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's a very special day at Clutter Headquarters. That's right, it's BDH's birthday! Our little blue friend joined our crew eight years ago today, and we can't imagine what it would be like around here without him. He brings a joy to the day for all of his friends, especially Little Buddha. As I've mentioned before, Buddha's been with me for a little over 26 years now, but his smile got even wider when he and BDH became best buddies. I expect we'll do a lot of celebrating, but we still need to... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It didn't start snowing until it was almost dark yesterday, and it was something like 20 degrees outside at that point, so my desire to shovel was not high/nowhere to be found. It looks like it's going to take a little while to clear everything today. I'm guessing it's pretty heavy at this point, thanks to last night's freezing rain. The biggest challenge will be clearing out the end of the driveway where the snowplows packed it all in overnight. Good times. BDH and Little Buddha remind... Continue reading

Our unabashed fondness for David Tennant for is well-documented in this space. We loved in him Doctor Who of course, as well as Broadchurch, and many other performances. He's brilliant in every role, but there's also a sense of humor and warmth about the man which has long led us to believe we would be best friends if we ever met. (Don't bother trying to convince us otherwise, you're just wrong.) That kindness and openness now shine in his newest adventure, David Tennant Does a Podcast with..., which is just a delight. We were particularly interested in his conversation with... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha just said that the likely start of today's snow has been pushed back a few hours, so we might need to re-adjust today's schedule accordingly. That's fine, I've got a few errands to run, and it would be nice to not have to deal with all of that. How is it already February 12th? I know February's missing a few days at the end, but it still seems to go by particularly quickly. It's probably because of the excitement about BDH's birthday on the 14th. There's still time to...

Our friend Brian recently introduced us to the YouTube series, Hot Ones. The show is hosted by Sean Evans who interviews his guest while the two of them eat increasingly hot chicken wings. After only a handful of episodes, we're hooked. The segments are roughly 25-30 minutes long, and they're a combination of celebrity interview and endurance test which ends up becoming a sort of performance art. Evans has a relaxed presence about him. He asks his guests interesting questions about their personal lives, careers, and Instagram posts, and the celebrities seem eager to engage, while nervously making jokes about... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all! BDH and Little Buddha were just looking at the weather forecast again. They're telling me I might need to stretch a bit before tomorrow's snow arrives, but then it's going to be warmer after that, and the rain might wash it all away. Hmm. Well, some stretching would do me good anyway, so it looks like that's on the schedule for later. In the meantime, let's see what's going on in the world. The guys made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going? BDH and Little Buddha have been focusing on their book while I take care of some errands. In hindsight, I'm not sure what they're reading is age-appropriate, but I guess that ship has sailed. (You can read their review in a few weeks.) The guys decided to take a break, so they asked if we could all hang out for a bit. What am I going to do, say no? I don't think so. They just made some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Before we talk about this week's episode, we want to say a quick congratulations to everyone who works on "A Million Little Things" on being renewed for a second season. The show clearly got a ratings bump when it moved to Thursday nights, and we're glad to see the network noticed it. Now, we're heading into the final stretch of season one, and in a show filled with secrets, this week was Regina's chance to reveal a major one of hers. Let's discuss. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: Gary doing the voice-over talking about mysteries during the... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans? We're always a little confused about what to do during the handful of weekends each year when there's no football or baseball to watch. Well, I'm confused. BDH and Little Buddha just got a new book this week, so maybe I'll hang out with them while they read. In the meantime, they just made some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. The Supreme Court temporarily blocked a Louisiana anti-abortion law by a 5-4 vote. As we suspected... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Hey, I need your help with something before BDH and Little Buddha come into the room. BDH's birthday is a week from today. Yes, he's a Valentine's Day dog! Perfect, right? Any ideas about what I can get him for a present? Email your suggestions to bitsofclutter@gmail.com. Oh, here they come...We hope you're all having a good week, and if it will help, the guys brought in some fresh coffee. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. The House Intelligence Committee is launching an extensive investigation of... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your week going? No complaints here, we've been fairly productive so far. Well, BDH and Little Buddha have been productive. I've mostly just kept them company while they do their work. They say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Donald Trump gave a disjointed State of the Union address last night. The White House occupant threw out some empty words in support of national unity. He then quickly erased that message with calls for... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're back to full speed here after a good night's sleep last night. Good luck to everyone trying to commute to work in Boston today before the Patriots championship parade begins. I think we've done one Patriots parade and one Red Sox parade in person...maybe two Patriots parades. Glad to be able to say we've seen them live, but they're not really our cup of tea. We get a little claustrophobic just thinking about it. However, BDH and Little Buddha hope everyone has a great time. The guys also say that the coffee... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all! It feels like we went to bed about an hour ago, so we're moving a bit slowly at the moment. That's okay, because the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl! What a game. We'll get to that in a few minutes. BDH and Little Buddha are a little sleepy, but they still made you all a pot of coffee (the first of several today, I'm sure.) Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter! Oh forget it, we're not going to wait. The... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I know I said yesterday that we probably wouldn't be able to meet up today. However, we're running ahead of schedule, and there isn't much left to do besides wait for the Super Bowl to get here, so BDH and Little Buddha decided we should say hi. They made a second pot of coffee in case any of you need a refill, so help yourself to another nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. It's been revealed that Donald Trump asked Deutsche Bank for a loan during the 2016 presidential... Continue reading
