Music Monday: Portals By Alan Silvestri

Over the weekend I watched 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame.' The tone and mood of the movies matched what's going on in my life. Last week, my campus had a study break to enable staff, and students, to prepare for online learning. I scrambled to brush on WebEx, a meeting software provided by the … Continue reading Music Monday: Portals By Alan Silvestri

Happy New Year!

Good-bye 2017, try not to let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. I decided on a solitary new year, something younger me would think makes a person a loser, usually because someone else said it and I believed it as gospel.

Midweek Geekiness: The Avengers Are Com…I mean… Assembling!

Oh baby: https://twitter.com/Marvel/status/570267577189937152 Hard to believe the sequel will release very soon. Nearly 3 years have passed since The Avengers. The successive movies, plus TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D show a different setting as the venerable agency couldn't stop a hydra threat.

Monday brought snow courtesy of a front closing parts of Manitoba,Saskatchewan, and Alberta.  Environment Canada called it a 'heavy snow fall warning.' While the wind largely died down in the evening, the ice found itself covered in loosely … Continue reading Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Legs

Midweek Geekiness: Through the Looking-Back Glass

Like many blog writers, I looked over my posts over this almost-completed year.  Technically, this blog has gone on for over a year.  I had reflective posts, fumbling posts, and Book Talk posts.  Midweek Geekiness came after getting stumped for ideas.  Using the adage 'write what you know', I read all things sundry and nerdy.  … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness: Through the Looking-Back Glass

Midweek Geekiness: Bringing Home The Avengers and Writing Outside the Blog

Unless someone lives under a rock,  The Avengers came out on DVD yesterday.  I decided to purchase the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack with plans to purchase a Blu-Ray player next month.  The gag reels and other extra goodies remain in the Blu-Ray disc, but I have a Joss Whedon commentary on the DVD side.  Fine by … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness: Bringing Home The Avengers and Writing Outside the Blog
