Monday, March 1, 2021 Star Wars: Episode IX

Since The Rise of Skywalker has the cameo of John Williams tending a bar surrounded by references to every one of his 51 Oscar nominations.  (52 now, I guess, since he got one for this movie too) it is is a good time to point out how awesome he is again.  All the themes and motifs he's created and weaved through the Star Wars franchise will be referenced and arranged for generations to come as the source of Star Wars soundtracks.

The Subtleties of Road House

Way back in the spring of last year, I upgraded to Blu Ray and rewatched Road House.

My intent was to write a post about the "Forgotten Awesomeness of Road House."

While not approaching The Electric Company levels of delay, clearly something prevented me from getting my thoughts together to write that.

It finally hit me what the issue was.

No one who has seen Road House can forget how awesome it is.

The sequels draw me in more than the prequels do. I haven't seen them as much which may be part of it, but its also because they feel more atmospherically connected to "my" Star Wars, I think.

Yes, I'm Going to Talk About "Kids Baking Championship"

We watch a lot of Food Network in our house.  It started back with Chopped marathons when we all had the plague after Memorial Day, the first summer without Up the Lake.

Anabelle has continued watching a huge variety of culinary shows.
