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

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? There's a chance we won't be able to meet up tomorrow, so BDH and Little Buddha wanted to make sure we said today, especially before the Super Bowl, but we'll get to that in a bit. Anything big on the schedule today? We've just got a few errands to run, and it looks like it might actually reach the 30's later, so that will be nice. Other than that, it's mostly waiting for the big game on Sunday. The guys say we need coffee. I certainly won't... Continue reading

As the arctic winds pass through the area, and we check the weather forecasts for any indications of snow, it's easy to let the mind wander with thoughts of warmer temperatures. There are many things to look forward to about the summer, and after watching the first trailer, we can now add, Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw to the list. The franchise that simply will not die is back with its first ever spinoff, featuring Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw respectively. The two rivals must team together to defeat cyber-genetically... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back for another discussion of the latest episode of A Million Little Things! Last week felt a lot like a season finale, so we're interested to see how the show rebuilds its momentum for its final month. The commercials and other social media have implied this week will be Ashley's reckoning. Will we also finally learn who Barbara Morgan is and how she fits into this story? Let's chat... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: We've seen glimpses of a mystery woman with brown hair who has had several brief tense interactions with Ashley over the last few episodes.... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Happy February 1, as well! We're pleased to get out of January for a number of reasons, including that sunsets are now close to 5:00, and oh, we have some birthdays coming soon! That should be fun. We're so excited to be in a new month, we almost didn't notice that the heat didn't seem to be working when we woke up this morning. However, it's on now, and BDH and Little Buddha just made coffee, so everything is back on track. Help yourself to a nice medium DD,... Continue reading

After a three-month hiatus, late night talk show host Conan O'Brien is back on TBS with his revamped program, and it doesn't appear that he's missed a beat. The new format is only thirty minutes long, and it will feature more remote segments instead of celebrity interviews. This should mean Conan can be a little more laid-back. So far, the initial results are promising. The Brookline native recently visited the Samuel Adams Brewery in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and it was a trip. First, Conan had an extended conversation with Jim Koch about the history of beer. Second, he made things... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going? We're all doing well here at the moment, particularly since January is almost over. I will admit that my excitement for going outside later is, shall we say, not high. BDH and Little Buddha point out that least we don't live in the Midwest, and I'll be fine as long as I wear enough layers. Five should do, right? They just smile when I ask questions like that. Fortunately, they also make terrific coffee. There's a fresh pot on the table, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. We were just watching the plows go up and down the street. There's definitely some shoveling that needs to happen, but it doesn't look like it should be "that" bad. Famous last words, right? BDH and Little Buddha just told me there's a warning about snow squalls later this afternoon, so I'm not sure how that's going to impact today's errands. Hmm, it's like it's winter or something. Well, let's see what's going on in today's headlines. The guys made you some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just reminding me to get the shovel out of the car before it snows later today/tonight. Sounds like I might want to also do some stretching beforehand. Well, I'll take care of that later. Otherwise, everything is going fine here at the moment. The guys say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said yesterday that the Mueller investigation is "close to being... Continue reading

The Van Halen camp has been trying to build some buzz about a possible tour, but Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony have already jumped out in front of them this year. The former Van Halen singer and bassist have joined up with guitarist Vic Johnson (who plays in Hagar's solo band) and drummer Jason Bonham (son of the legendary John Bonham) to form The Circle, and they've just released their first single, "Trust Fund Baby." Let's get the weak part out of the way first. This is not a lyrically strong song. "Entourage going strong, hangers on hanging on, everything... Continue reading
