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

Solstice, not just a bad movie

It’s also one long ass day. The summer solstice.  Good times.  11:24 pm CDT. I was looking for a good solstice related movie.  There’s a few to choose from.  I read an article in which the author questioned why anyone … Continue reading

That’s no space station…It’s a tiny moon

Today brings us the smallest full moon of the year.  The full moon crested at 9:10am Eastern Time, but it’s still out there being full right now. The Flower Moon – or Strawberry Moon or Rose Moon.  If you’re in … Continue reading

“Spring” has sprung, mud was flung, tentacle tongues
