Easter and Podcast Sunday

It has been a minute since we’ve had the time to sit down and record but we’re back on the…air?

I sat down with Sam and we talked about the Road To Nowhere and some of our adventures in the mountains of NC today.

It’s short as far as podcasts though and we’re still getting out legs under us in this. Just a father and son having a good time.

Today was Easter and we did our church service as a tailgate affair.

And then off to Mamaw and Papaws for lunch and the Easter egg hunting. The oldest is feeling a little too old for this but still goes for the candy. Sugar will make you forget yourself, I guess.

The boy is eleven so an Easter Egg hunt is cool by him. Besides, he’s Mamaw’s boy.

All in all a good day.


Finally getting around to Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

We started it last night and let me tell you, four hours is a long time.

But I understand. This is actually telling a story and it’s pretty great. This will move to the top of my list quickly. (I’m not done yet.)

The only offerings I’ve truly enjoyed from DC live action are (in order of appreciation):

1. Batman Begins

2. Shazam (Truly enjoyed.)

3. The Dark Knight Rises (for finishing the story)

4. Christopher Reeve Superman movies.

5. The Dark Knight

The DCAU still kicks Marvel’s butt in superior animated quality. Period.


That’s it. That’s the post.

The Coupon

When my daughter was small she gifted me with a coupon.

Often I will put out my arms for a hug and just say “Coupon.” as she rolls her eyes but smiles and hugs me anyway.

This coupon also extends to her mother, although I am the original and current bearer of the coupon.

I have it hidden in a secret spot. Safe from anyone who might want to destroy it.

She’ll never find it.

I will leave it for her one day, when the inevitable happens.

Here’s hoping that’s gonna be a while.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Old Pic

This was an old toy flashlight of my daughters. For years I had it sitting on top of the light on my work bench in the garage. It was a reminder of when she was little, I suppose.

One day it fell and smashed to bits.

We lose things along the way and only have memories of them to hold onto.

If we’re lucky, we’ll have an old pic or two.

That’s it. That’s the post.

The Punisher Had A Daughter

I just finished watching Run Hide Fight and I have to say that if The Daily Wire keeps turning out quality entertainment like this the culture war is on!

I’m a big Thomas Jane fan and have been before The Punisher and after watching this movie the title of this post came to mind.

Isabel May gives a fantastic performance as Zoe Hull a teenager working through the grief of losing her mother. Thomas Jane plays her father Todd (come on guys! Couldn’t you have named him Frank?!)

The plot is centered around a school shooting. Zoe is the Die Hard-ish hero of the film, but there are so many people having a hero moment in the film.

I recently (just this week) subscribed to The Daily Wire site and I’m glad I did. This is going to be money well spent along with everything else I already get, including the articles and podcasts.

This is a great alternative to Hollywood. I’m glad to be at least putting some money towards people who align with my values and who see the problems I see with our culture.

I’m listening to them talk about more movies, children’s movies, the series. And that fairly excites me. So glad to see some alternative to what we have now.

That’s it. That’s the post.

New Years Eve

It’s New Years Eve and we’ve eaten dinner already and now we’re sitting here, as a family, watching Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, again.

The original Jumanji is a classic but I think as far as comedy you can’t beat this remake. One of the few remakes I’ve actually ever enjoyed. The Rock and Kevin Hart are always fantastic together (see Central Intelligence).

We’ll finish this up and then go our separate ways (them to their rooms, the wife and I in the living room) until about 11:30 tonight.

I’m kind of interested to see what NYC is going to do this year.

It’s been a rough year for all of us. But if you’re reading this and still alive, it can get better.

At midnight tonight after your first kiss of the year with your loved one, or whatever, please step outside and join me in screaming JUMANJI at the top of your lungs.

It’s worth a shot.

Maybe we can get out of this.

Happy New Year.

That’s it. That’s the post.

The Day Won’t End

I am currently making a shirt for my daughter to give as a gift.

Meet My Maker

After this I’ma sit down with a cup of coffee and watch the last episode of series ten of Taskmaster. My wife has decided that she really likes a show that I like.

That’s a win for me.

Anyway…

That’s it. That’s the post.

I Took The Kids

Shopping. I took the kids shopping today.

Mom has to get her CEUs in and needed a quiet house.

#REBELS

So we went out in search of Christmas presents for mom and to pick up the elder child’s glasses that came in yesterday.

Fun day. Tiring day. I almost forgot to post tonight.


If you’ve never watched Two Sentence Horror Stories, it’s on Netflix and fairly entertaining.

I’m probably a late adopter again.

That’s it. That’s the post.

The Promised Land

Before I start, this isn’t a religious post or a post about freedom and liberty.

No. This is about a journey and the things that happened along the way. A journey to get to a place we were at the whole time.


Several decades ago, a writing team came up with an idea for a comedy/SciFi show for British television. I don’t know all the particulars but the first thing I saw was this.

This is from the episode Tongue Tied and is a better filmed image than the first episode. But fans will nitpick and they’ll also get the first episode feel.

Then…

What’s happenin’, dudes?

This is an SOS distress call from the mining ship Red Dwarf. The crew are dead, killed by a radiation leak. The only survivors are Dave Lister, who was in suspended animation during the disaster, and his pregnant cat, who was safely sealed in the hold. Revived three million years later, Lister’s only companions are a life form who evolved from his cat, and Arnold Rimmer, a hologram simulation of one of the dead crew. I am Holly, the ship’s computer, with an IQ of 6000, the same IQ as 6000 PE teachers.”

The wife and I had moved to a new apartment on a Saturday. No cable until the following Monday. So I rigged up a make shift antenna on the TV (tube TV, that’s how far back the story goes) and all we could get was PBS.

And that was okay. Back then, PBS had some fairly entertaining stuff on Saturday nights.

The first thing that came up was Red Dwarf.

Every Saturday night we got to catch an episode or two. Right from the first episode.

And we were hooked.

The next three times we moved the series would start over again. It was like a good luck charm. And we would watch it all over, again.

Then we moved to our house here and it wasn’t on PBS anymore. So that Saturday morning we went out looking for the DVDs and found them.

And that first Saturday night we watched the first series.

It’s a tradition for our home. A weird one, maybe. But it’s ours.

Now we’ve passed that on to our daughter and son.


We’ve been to The End and The Beginning. We’ve been Tongue Tied and Backwards. We’ve encountered everything from Despair Squids to Pleasure Gelfs.

Don’t even get us started on Polymorphs.

We’ve seen the Boys from the Dwarf get into and out of all kinds of scrapes. We’ve seen them become hero’s and be the villains.

It’s a great ride.


And then we come to The Promised Land.

I wasn’t going in with high hopes for a feature length episode. I was thinking that might be pushing it for this show.

I was surprised. It was something I would have paid for at a theater. And I wish I could have seen it all on the big screen.


So here we are, at journeys end and we find out:

The Promised Land is not a planet.

It’s a place in your heart.

It’s a way of thinking.


It sounds a bit like home. But the building doesn’t make a home, the people do.


And now we’ve gone through it all. The family has seen the whole thing. Taken the entire journey.

And it was smegging fantastic.

It’s Monday.

Or will be for another couple of hours.

The daughter got straight A’s on her report card. That’s the good.

She also needed to go to the doctor today so the wife took her to our family pediatrician who will see our children well into their teen years.

The doc ain’t about making extra money due to the discomfort of children. He truly cares for them. They aren’t just a sickness making their way through his office.

Translate this as no Covid test without reason.

She has a double ear infection. That’s the bad.

Meds prescribed. Problem will be taken care of. All sorted.

And me? I went to work. I worked. And for my trouble I broke my glasses.

My troubles are minuscule compared to what some of my friends are going through.

One dealing with a major illness.

One dealing with Covid.

Others dealing with deaths in the family.

No. I have no problems compared to them.

So I’m not complaining. I’m praying for them.

-————

I received a thing in the mail today. A morale patch for my everyday bag.

People on both sides might assign me this title after something I posted today. I don’t care. I can’t.

These are rough times politically in the United States. Everyone wants power. The people seem to have none. I’m worried. But life does have to go on. So I’m doing my thing. Making the best of it.

And watching.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Knights To Nomads: HOMECOMING 2020

Featuring the NCHS Silver Knights.

We were back at The Castle Friday night for Homecoming. North Central Knights against the Great Falls Red Devils (who were exorcised 54-8). The Knights football team are having a fantastic season and congrats to them.

Me and Sam (he’s my assistant photographer/second shooter) could see the stadium lit up almost a mile away. We hadn’t been there yet for a game and were both very impressed with the upgrades to the rebuilt stadium. North Central has moved up in the world a bit. Well deserved if I do say so myself.

We’re proud of all of our kids after what they’ve been through this year. They’ve shown what they’re really made of. A lot of hardship and some extremely hard personal tragedies. And they’re still here. Fighting like always.

But…

I’m with the band.

I’m glad to be there. I’ve watched them develop over the last couple of years. They are literally award winning. And I love hearing them play.

So, without further ado (and because I’m running out of words) ladies and gentleman. The North Central Silver Knights.
