During the day, we are watching the wildflowers and the plum trees come into bloom, the flycatchers and hummingbirds building their nests, and keeping an eye out for the new fawn (the pregnant female has not been around the last week).
We are watching the notices from the State, County and local pharmacies so we can get our neighbors into a vaccine appointment.
We are watching Casemates for a Viognier sale and Meh for a Mehrathon.
During the evening, it’s the Wynonna Earp, Resident Alien and John Oliver recordings that are stacking up.
For All Mankind, awesome historical fiction series about the space race. On Apple TV, first season free, second costs you at least $4.99 (monthly fee). AND, Spring Training MLB and PGA and some NCAA BB conference tourney games.
@sjk3 Now I’m watchin Pulp Fiction this weekend!
I keep hearin’ you’re concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you’re givin’ me is conscience I guess
If I was walkin’ in your shoes, I wouldn’t worry none
While you ‘n’ your friends are worried about me I’m havin’ lots of fun
I hope to watch a recording of a very funny and touching one actress play, “Bad Dates.” I saw a different terrific production a few years ago at Shakespeare & Co.in Lenox, MA performed by Elizabeth Aspenlieder. I may see a movie at home also and The Rookie and The Equalizer (series) if they are on Sunday.
Going through the MCU for the first time ever, in chronological order. A little annoyed that the spider-man movies are all under different licensing than most of the rest of the canon. Irritated at the dumbass 2008 hulk movie only being available for rent, too, but at least I had an Amazon digital credit that made it cheaper.
Catching up on Jeopardy host Mike Richard’s run. If anyone can continue in Alex Trebek’s legacy, it is him. Ken Jennings was just not as personable, and seemed perfunctory. Mike shows he has a deep fondness for the game, and his patter and tone are spot on.
@mike808 Mike is/was great. I always seem to be out of the social normal. Ratings dropped when Ken left and Mike took over. Now it’s Katie Couric. I don’t care for her at all so, I’m sure she will be a big hit.
@accelerator i thought katie couric was going to be great - after all she’s spent her whole career reading things off teleprompters and asking people questions, and she seems very personable. and yet…i have to say unfortunately she’s my least favorite guest host so far. can’t even really put my finger on why, but it’s not a good fit imho.
i really enjoyed ken, even in all his…ken-ness. mike was fine, and he obviously loves the show and everything about it, he was just too generic for me. he could have been doing the amazing race or survivor or whatever, or interchanged with those guys (or is it one guy? idk) and it wouldn’t have been any different to me.
@mike808 I thought Ken Jennings did really well and might be the final permanent host. Waiting for Aaron Rogers (GB quarterback)-that could be a disaster. Just like when Vanna White hosted Wheel of Fortune when Pat Sajack was recovering. She was like a deer in the headlights the whole time and was difficult to watch.
I’m literally watching paint dry this weekend. We are having the whole house done. Retexturing walls with a plaster skip trowel finish; painted from ceiling to baseboards, and wood plank tile laid throughout the entire house. We’re all, us and the three cats, sequestered in the master bedroom for three weeks.
@tinamarie1974 yeah, it wasn’t a good game for us, we didn’t play well. not sure what it is about afternoon games usually. (not blaming the time of the game of course! just always seems like we can’t get it together if it’s early lol.) that’s okay though, we’ll bounce back.
@tinamarie1974 if only! funny how it goes. we’ll beat one of the best teams and then go on to get whipped by one of the worst. this year is definitely an adjustment for us with chara having moved on (and i also think torey krug was a huge loss) and we’ve had some injuries but there doesn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason to our wins/losses. hopefully we show up tonight!
@tinamarie1974 yeah, i thought it was despicable tbh. to have his last season be the covid bubble hot mess, with no fans…to let him go out that way after all he gave to us, i was appalled. but, life goes on i guess! we are lucky to have bergeron to fill his shoes, anyhow.
One of George Carlin’s favorite routine was about how boring it was to watch golf. Said it was as excited as watching flies fuck. He said you hit the ball and you go find it and then what do you do-you hit it again. You are lucky you found it-you should pick it up and go home.
@Kyeh This is when I saw him and he died in June of 2008 so I was a little off in my time frame.
Dec. 8, 2006
The groundbreaking comedian made the last of several packed performances following his HBO special “Life is Worth Losing,” in which he mentioned his newfound sobriety and riffed on topics such as suicide, genocide and humans’ inferiority to other animals. “My first purple hall,” he wrote in the guestbook during his first Van Wezel date decades earlier — pretty clean for Carlin. He passed away in 2008 at 71 years old.
@RiotDemon Absolutely. It’s great for old and new movies that are not available digitally. Plus I usually get a new disc 2 days after I mail in my old disc. In the event there is a delay in shipment, they will send me the next disc in my queue so I always have something to watch.
