Behind the 8-Ball – Time To Catch Up

Behind the 8-Ball

I’ve been a really bad blogger lately. There’s a variety of reasons for this, but suffice to say I’ve not been making writing here a priority the way I’d like to. It’s time to get caught up.

Responsibility of Seeing an Early Screening

The Last Jedi - No Spoilers

I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi last night. There’s a lot to process and I can’t wait to see it again.

Let them experience it for themselves. In that same vein I’d ask this… don’t be that guy. Don’t post spoilers without … Continue reading

Owen 16 - jimmert444

Just spitballing here for a moment… I’m trying to keep it positive, but it’s proving difficult.

You’ll hear it countless times today: “Never forget”. You’ll (hopefully) see flags. You’ll see Facebook and Twitter profiles updated. But have you really remembered since last year?
