Return of the Moonwalker

It’s Friday the 13th and we have ourselves a supermoon, whether you see it or not.  It’s also hot as Hades and I have a migraine. In my brain addled state, I thought it was a good idea to watch … Continue reading

Uncle Sam

Happy Independence Day and Canada Day and boiling hot summer.  Everything’s just great.  Pick up a tariff on your way out.  Everyone gets one. Let’s talk Independence Day horror movies. Then again, maybe we shouldn’t.  They’re mostly about sharks and … Continue reading

Not so Stranger Things

I binge-watched season two of Stranger Things the day it came out. NO RAGRETS! The beauty of Stranger Things isn’t in the nitty-gritty of the story.  The greatness is the characters and the mood.  It is well-acted and it looks … Continue reading

H. is for headspace. It’s also a movie.

Asteroid 3122 Florence (aka Asteroid 1981ET3) whooshed past Earth. 3122 Flo is yuge – 2.7 miles in diameter. We got lucky.  This time.  However, that doesn’t stop us from obsessing about large space objects colliding with Earth and causing havoc, with … Continue reading
