X-Files...the end?

After watching the season finale and knowing that Dana Scully WILL NOT be doing another season, I wonder now if this is the last season of X-Files. I would hate that because this has been one of the best seasons I think they've ever had. Great one-off episodes and over arcing story that just goes to show you that Chris Carter isn't out of good ideas yet!

If you haven't been watching the newer episodes and you enjoyed the older series, then you are missing out! I guess this does give fans a potential ending to deal with but I do hope they find some way to go on without Scully.

There's always Agent Doggit.....?

Baseball (Review)

I finally finished re-watching Ken Burn's Documentary on Baseball and I can safely say (once again) that it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen! So much detail about the game through the decades it immediately made me want to take a glove and start throwing the ball around at that very moment!

One small complaint is that they rush through the 80's and 90's which was a time I enjoyed watching the most. No idea why except that those seasons were "recent" at the time this was made so I guess they didn't think people would be as interested in them. But overall the series is a MUST for any baseball fan.

Star Trek TNG Review

I've now finished The Next Generation and after a 2nd time watching it I think I like it better than the last! he characters are done really well and the only jarring thing about the series was the writers attempt to get rid of Beverly Crusher, replacing her with a horribly uninteresting one, only to over turn that decision one year later and place Crusher back in (with no explanation of why the last one left) I really liked a lot of the episodes too.

I still think this has one of THE BEST endings to a TV series I've ever seen! Good stuff! I've already started watching Deep Space Nine and will be starting Voyager soon too. Switching in-between the two since I think I want to do this in "date aired" order this time around.

Should you see it? Absolutely! It's a fantastic show!

New favorite Energy Drink

I don't usually drink these type of drinks but when I do, these are my favorite. The taste great, have 0 calories and are SUPER effective! I'm also glad you can't get them here in Monroe easily. The only place I know that sells them is at my gym and they only carry a few at a time. UH-Mazing drink!

Though I'm glad I can't have too much of them here....because I'm pretty sure that's a bad thing. : )

Moon (Review)

No spoilers here but it's about a guy who works on the moon, harvesting "Lunar Energy" for the people back on earth. He's just finishing up his 3 year contract when something happens....awesome movie.

Watch it. I'm not spoiling anything else. Unbelievable.

Baseball update

 Another amazing day for baseball! The Mets win with a walk off homerun by Flores, who is easily one of our weakest hitters in the lineup! I don't know how but by sheer will power the Mets continue to power through and win. (in other news the Nationals coughed up a win against the Rockies, yee-haw!)
But I have to tip my hat for Colon who almost nailed himself a no-hitter today....while in his mid-40's. I swear, this guys my hero now and I'm getting tempted to buy his jersey. I'm serious, this amazing man is my favorite player in baseball right now. Unbelievable what he did tonight and he looked GREAT while doing it!

To think he only made the team due to an injury on the last day of spring training. (he'd been cut the day before)

Pretty incredible. My hats off to you sir!


Church of the Redeemer

Had our first worship service at our new church today. It's very beautiful and I love it already! Though I'm not too crazy about the name (we sound like a cult) I will say that it's only the beginning of a very successful tenure at our new building!

Casino (Review)

It's been decades since I've seen this movie so I thought I'd give it another watch since I completely forgot what happened in it. With Deniro, Pesci and Stone it couldn't be bad right? Right!

Great movie! Couldn't look away the whole time. The story was very engaging. I even paused it whenever I had to step away for a second because I didn't want to miss a moment!

Scorsese made a masterpiece and this one is well worth your time!

Have a great weekend folks!
