DC Plays to its Strengths in Blue Beetle

DC films have been all over the place. They've screwed up a considerable number of them, and even the ones they've done well have their own errors, used characters that let them dip partially into where DC shines without full embracing it, or have leaned on the ones they've screwed up to continue trends.

Until Now!

A Little Hop of Showers

That title would have worked better if it rained. Then again, the day wouldn't have.

It certainly has been the summer of funny stage tragedies for us. This one was planned further in advance ,however. Earlier in the summer, Anabelle and Rosa had a "Manhattan Day" to go see a Yayoi Kusama exhibit.

The First Geralt's Last Ride


I have my daughter to thank for some new toys. 

Explanation: I have never liked super deformed or caricature figures, funkos included. However, there was something about the Witcher ones that captured the spirit of the show. I kept seeing them on sale but never all 4 of the main characters at once. Without knowing any of this, for Father’s Day, Anabelle (having heard his songs in the car and me talking about how funny he was) got me the Jaskier one as a joke along with a note saying she’d watch the series I’ve been telling her she’d like with me. Therefore I “NEEDED” to order the other three. She helped me pick the coolest looking ones. 
Thanx kiddo , they look great and I enjoyed seeing the series with you.

Translation- Not only have I watched The Witcher season three, but I watched the whole show again from the beginning with Anabelle.

A Very Public Secret Invation

Secret Invasion was only six episodes long, and yet it has provided me with huge amounts of confusion, none of which was related to the story itself.

Teacher Tributes: Instrumental Music

There are few things in life that give a feeling of greater accomplishment as part of a group as being in a band when everything is clicking.

There are also few things that provide as good an example of how important teachers are to students enjoying what they're doing and learning as my time playing the saxophone.
