Week in Review (March 10th) ️


  • The biggest news this week is my wife got a job! Not just any job, but the job she really wanted and waited for since November. The pay is more than expected and we should be back on track quickly once the money starts rolling in.
  • It’s good that she got a job, because we had $700 worth of unexpected car repairs this week!
  • I went ahead and took advantage of the Lifetime Scribbles offer. I really like Scribbles and Vincent is constantly working at making improvements. I think eventually I’ll move all my blogging over, but I may wait till markdown support is added to make it easy to bring over my posts.
  • I’ve been working hard at streamlining my blog and reducing the number of places I write. I had to make some hard decisions about some old blogs that are rarely updated and even decided against making a new blog (at least for now). There are only so many hours in the day, and I have to remember to keep it simple.
  • Wow, that new Fallout trailer looks good! I mean, they kept with the spirit of the game and that was unexpected. I’m excited!
  • I discovered that the Richmond Nightmare Weekend that is coming up in October has a heck of a lineup already of horror related guests. John Carpenter and part of the cast of The Monster Squad (one of my all-time favorite movies) will be in attendance. Richmond is only a few hours away from me, so I might be making that trip.
  • I finally got around to creating a Now page.

️ Healthy Living

  • The Outer Limits S3E14 The Music of Spheres ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Joshua Jackson and Kirsten Dunst star in this interesting story about a radio communication from space.
  • So Tell Me Todd ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – I’m still working my way through the first season and I enjoy the show. It’s good, but not great.
  • Smallville Season 3 (Eps. 19-22) ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – I finished up season three of Smallville, and I can feel the show shifting hard away from the high school dynamic that I really enjoyed the first couple of seasons.
  • The Ones Who Lived (Episode 1) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – I was blown away by this first episode. I quit watching the Walking Dead around season six, so I wasn’t 100% sure what was going on at first, but it came together well and I’m looking forward to watching more of this.


  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 (Xbox Series X)
  • Batman Arkham Asylum (PS5)

  • The Last Ronin II #1 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Wow… I still haven’t read the prequel series, but this is a great follow up to the Last Ronin so far. It feels familiar, yet new and I’m excited to see where it goes.
  • Ultimate X-Men #1 (2024) ⭐️⭐️- Umm… this was interesting. Definitely not what I was expecting, but it’s weird enough and a different enough that I’ll check out a few more episodes to see where it is going.
  • What If? Aliens #1 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Paul Reiser helped with the story in this comic featuring his character, Carter Burke. It started off a little slow recapping the end of Aliens, but by the end I was thoroughly interested in seeing where the story takes us.
  • Captain America #7 (2024) ⭐️ – Okay. I’m done. I read the first six last week and I wasn’t thrilled, now I’m really over it.
  • Geiger #1-2 (2023) ⭐️⭐️ – I know some people haven’t enjoyed Geoff John’s original character, but I think there is some depth here and I like the weird post-apocalyptic setting. I’m interested in seeing how this character develops.
