Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.
Sigal Avin and David Schwimmer Release Web Series, #ThatsHarassment Dealing with Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
Recently, my wife has been schooling me on all the bullshit women have to go through by just stepping outside into public. We all know about the #MeToo Movement and the pushback against men (and sometimes. women) who force themselves on colleagues and co-workers with the threat of professional and personal repercussions. Like most people, […]
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
Interesting week for comics. Ta-Nehisi Coates’ first issue of Captain America was excellent. Finally a real epilogue to last year’s Secret Empire. Dealing with the country and it’s citizens after they’ve been broken by Hydra is going to be an interesting ride. Again, this is a week where my interests turn more toward Synder’s Justice League than Aaron’s Avengers. I’m starting […]
Spotify Playlist of The Moment: “lofi hip hop” Curated by Sabrina Schivo
I’ve been really getting into Spotify lately. It took me a while to get into music streaming, being an old cat who appreciates buying and keeping digital copies of music on my Mac and my server. When Apple released their music subscription service, it was easy to dip my toe in the water with the […]
Shane Black’s The Predator Will Attempt To Reboot the Franchise
Beside the first Predator back in 1987, the franchise has been on a steady decline. The sequel in 1990 wasn’t that great. The two crossover movies with the Alien franchise were underwhelming and the Adrian Brodie reboot in 2010 didn’t do as well as expected (even though I loved it). From what we see in the trailer, […]
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
The Season 3 Time Jump Has Reset/Invigorated Colony
Colony on the USA Network has been a guilty pleasure on the backburner since it started. With season 3, they’ve rebooted the show from a grim Walking Dead style show to an occupation mystery. The new Seattle holds some interesting secrets and I’m hoping the payoff will be worth the watch.
Cloak and Dagger Is Shaping Up To Be One of The Best Marvel TV Shows
Relying less on action and more on teen angst, the Freeform Network series Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger are turning out to be one of the better comic book adaptations on the air. Instead of the tired and true formula of ‘get powers, fight crime’, Cloak and Dagger is taking it’s time to build the narrative of […]
