On the board!

Well I guess it's official now so I can talk about it, I'm now on the Board at the Strauss theatre.

It's a real honor to be nominated. I've been helping out at the Strauss for some time and though I haven't been involved as much as I used to I look forward to making a positive impact in the future with the Theatre.

Never been on a Board before. Should be interesting to see what happens!

Have a good weekend folks!

So long Sears!

As the company continues to hemorrhage they announced a few months back that the store in Monroe will be closing and to be honest, I'm not going to miss them.

Horrible service EVERY time I've gone to look for something. This was a place I could see myself being loyal too but because I was treated like garbage every time I went in, it's no wonder the company as a whole is sinking to the ground.

Here's to hoping the entire company goes bankrupt within a year!

The Foreigner (Review)

I love me some Jackie Chan. I missed this one in theaters last year and regretted it because I heard it was good. So I finally got a chance to watch it last month and....it's bad....REALLY bad.

SO boring. Chan is in barely half the film and the pace DRAGS bad. I don't know what the critics were thinking. After this, I think I'm laying off Jackie's movies for a while. He's getting old and I can understand that there won't be the magnificent stunts we saw in his younger days, but movies like these just hurt his brand.

What ever happened to cell phone batteries?

Remember back in the day when you could go 3 days before having to charge your phone? Today I have to charge it at least once a day sometimes twice!! I know streaming video and online access drain a battery faster but why haven't they compensated by inventing a long lasting battery?!

Heck, I'd even go back to having a thicker phone if it made a difference! I just want more battery life and not have to charge it at every turn!

Ok, I'm done with my short "rant" for the day. Have a good one folks!

Tiny Toons (Review)

So with my Hulu subscription came this classic cartoon from my childhood. I remember watching it with my brothers, with some quotes we STILL use today!  So I thought it would still hold up.

I was wrong.

It's really bad. Sure there's some chuckles here and there but overall it's embarrassing to watch. Just like Darkwing Duck, time is not kind to this cartoon. I drudged through the first season before waving the white flag and moving on to something else.

So if you were wondering how this cartoon is today....don't. Keep your happy memories of it and never look back.

The Dana Carvey Show (Review)

I was interested in seeing this show when I heard Steve Colbert, Steve Carrel, the voice behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Louis CK were in. So many stars, the show can't be that bad can it?!

Well....it's humor is dated. This came out in '96, so if you're not familiar with the goings on, of the day then you might not get a majority of the jokes. However, there were moments of pure hilarity in it and with only 8 episodes made, it's not that big a deal to binge watch on Hulu.

My favorite skits were Dan Rather practicing on reporting the potential death of Gerald Ford and the picture above, of two guys who "prank" others but they're the ones getting the short end of the deal every time yet they never realize it, while laughing together in the car.

Fun stuff!

Have a good weekend folks!

The Disaster Artist (Review)

I've been interested in seeing this movie though I've never seen (and never intend to see) "The Room" which it is based off of.

This odd "true" story was actually pretty fun to watch and I'd have liked to have been there during the actual filming of "The Room" (rather than watch the finished product)

Either way, it was worth my time seeing.
