Entertainment programs come and go by so fast, it is easy to lose track. Fortunately, I jotted them down and will review as many as I possibly can.
No Cable TV, Just Download
While we have cable TV, I do not watch ANY of it.
I download every entertainment program, watch it online, or borrow Blu-Rays and DVDs from the library. I never used to download, but when I upgraded from Windows XP (Microsoft’s “support” ended) to Linux, software such as VLC made it worthwhile. It is the best video application I have ever EVER used. Windows Media Player was a nightmare. Awful.
Drama, I Love
A majority of the online shows I watch are KDrama, although I doubt I will be reviewing any.
I have seen so many that I don’t think I remember any unless it was an outstanding show.
Korean movies I will likely review.
GOALS: The Review List
In no particular order, I want to write a post about the following, and of course, there will be more eventually:
- Luke Cage (Season 2)
- Jessica Jones (Season 1)
- The Punisher (Season 1)
- The Expanse
- Criminal Minds
- Good Doctor
- Mars (Discovery Channel)
- Nightflyer (SyFy Short)
- Lost in Space
- Altered Carbon
- The Gifted
- The Good Fight
- The Good Wife
- The Man in the High Castle
Oh, there have been a lot of events over the years, where I felt the urge to blog about it. But thankfully, I stifled the urge until it died. Sometimes it is better to say nothing, than anything at all.
Who needed my hot take on current events anyway?
What have I done during my years of absence? Moved from the suburbs to a rural location. I can walk and talk to cows from my house. I’m on a quarter acre of land, so that’s a sufficient distance from neighbors. And folks around here are pleasant without being nosy or looking to one-up anyone.
Did I mention it is cheaper here? Unlike my former residence where I had to carry cash or pay a toll just to hit the road, living is simpler. The lower stress makes the people more pleasant. And selfishly, any developments I see make me uneasy.
Go away, I say.
Am I happy? Life is what I’ve made it. I’m here for now. It’s satisfactory. Whatever I can change is something I will have to work towards, like everything else.
My goal is write about the few movies, TV shows, books (if I ever read again) and other entertainment that I want to review. If it’s about current events, maybe I’ll have a hot take, maybe I wont.
I hope everyone else is doing better than great with their lives.
I’m a blank right now. 😀

The Blizzard That Wasn’t
I was expecting more snow, but I’m thankful my area wasn’t hit with much. A good lot of it has melted away already. Unfortunately, the New England area is another story.
Amazing Analysis of Scandal
I want to give props to Faith (actsoffaithblog.com) for her insightful examination of Scandal. It came about due to Star Jones trying to dictate to Shonda Rhimes about the direction of the show’s characters.
I loved reading her thoughts on this topic. Enjoy.
Went today. Never attended this particular one before. Although I’ve been to a few sci-fi or writer’s conventions. I thought Comic Con was only a west coast affair.
Rather nice and interesting event, I expected TV shows or something of that nature. But it was pure comics, video games, and the like.
I only regret not getting my hands on a T-shirt. It ended too soon, before I could see everything. And it was packed!
At long last I figured out some new technology. Probably old for everyone else, but I hate struggling through new things, but that’s the only way to learn.
And I know people who can’t stand new technology. I can’t say I blame them. But my philosophy is to keep playing with it until it breaks.
So, if you see a short post. I am blogging from my tiny cellphone. My long silence was based in frustration: lots to say, never enough time.
Like my shoes? Ugly, but very comfy.
