I Did Drink This Just Last Week.

You Are Guinness

You know beer well, and you'll only drink the best beers in the world.
Watered down beers disgust you, as do the people who drink them.
When you drink, you tend to become a bit of a know it all - especially about subjects you don't know well.
But your friends tolerate your drunken ways, because you introduce them to the best beers around.

It was partially to celebrate St. Patty's Day and what else does one drink during March Madness but beer? I do find it odd I picked Amsterdam, not Dublin and I still got this answer but at least it's a beer I drink. Two years ago now it must have been since she just turned 21 recently, Keira Knightley once said Dublin was the best place to drink Guinness but she was only 19 at the time so she couldn't drink here in America (There's something weird about that but I don't know what.) but that seems perfectly logical to me. American beer, ::sticks finger down throat:: so I'd imagine they'd find ways to screw up the imported.

I suppose I must ask what the hell happened to the UConn men yesterday. I still don't understand how they could have lost. It was an 11 seed for godsakes! My response to my mother when she asked that question was that George Mason just wanted it more. Thank God the women are still alive but Duke will not be an easy task.

I couldn't get ahold of anyone at my temp agency today so I'll have to try again tomorrow. I need to get back to work before I remember what fun and how relaxing staying home can be.

You mean you don't love drinking Budweiser?? Here is a link to the place I wanted to take you when you visited:
They should be open when you all come down next month!

Thanks for the link. If that works out, I think it would be fun.

My father compares Bud to sknunk piss. I'm really not sure hiw he knows but I suppose I don't want to!

Ant-Man On The Ocean

I'll discuss  Ant-Man and the Wasp  in a minute but there's still a handful of thoughts about my viewing of  Ocean's Eight I want to relay first...  When the all-female Ghostbusters  came out, there was the usual "raping of childhood" complaints.  Ocean's Eight sidestepped many of these issues by being a spin-off of a remake that was already done. Sandra Bullock played the sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean. (There was mention their father was als in the business. A reference to Frank Sinatra?)  Also, if you want to do a all-female action and/or comedy movie, the heist genre isn't a bad way to go.

Soundtracks are usually "just there" for me. They seem to be usually selected for their beat and tempo and not their lyrics. Lindsay Lohan's Herbie: Fully Loaded  was particularly noticeable in this regard for me  but I was admittedly in a bad mood that night since I had rather watched  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe  for whatever num…

Going Solo With The Reviews Today

This post will focus only on  Solo: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars  has always had controversy going back to the old, old Star Wars vs. Star Trek  debate.  It's funny that  Solo  was directed by Ron Howard as franchise creator George Lucas once recognized Ron's brother Clint during a casting session as Balok of the First Federation in the early Star Trek  episode "The Corbomite Maneuver." I bring up this old argument only to point out when comparing the two as I've felt  Star Trek  (at least on TV. Harve Bennett dumbed down the franchise for the movies long before  Star Wars fan JJ Abrams did...)   that Trek was more intellectually stimulating while Wars was pure Good vs. Evil fun.  Solo  is a shining example of this and sunlight-deprived  nerds are up in arms.

A friend pointed out to me the movie explained too many mysteries.  According to the internet, the biggest, most controversial, reveal was where Han Solo's name came from. This was never a mystery worth…

Something For Everyone...Maybe. (Probably Not...)

For many reasons, including no time or ambition to do so on my part, I have not posted in awhile but I was told recently that people actually enjoy reading this so I have returned and have a few things I want to discuss.

1. The first season of  Black Lightning  ended awhile ago but was quite enjoyable. Time will tell but at least for now, the writers have found a formula unlike other superhero series from Smallville  to the present shows on The CW and Netflix. One way to look at it is they haven't finished the setup. Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning may have one daughter Anissa who has joined his fight as Thunder but Jennifer still technically isn't Lightning yet.  (Yeah, Black Lightning AND Lightning? But given her electricity-generating power, what else would you call her? Generator Y?) And the big bad Tobias Whale doesn't seem to be finished yet. Hopefully, he won't become another Lex Luthor but, in some ways, he already is...
