Week in Review (March 3rd) ️


  • Monday was my wife’s birthday, and we went out to eat sushi and ice cream with my mom which made for a great evening.
  • Last year, someone on was kind enough to share with me an invite code for BlueSky. I loved the design and early Twitter feel of the app, however, the content was just as toxic as Twitter, it just leaned in another political direction. I closed out that account after two days. Last week, I decided to peek around again since the registrations are open and while things seemed to be a bit better (not much), I haven’t found anything worth following. I will say, I still love the old school Twitter simplicity of the app, but I can also see it filling up with ads eventually when a profit is desired.
  • BearBlog finally got support for multiple blogs which I’ve wanted for quite some time and finally got some filters to help cut down on the unwanted political drama. The main reason I didn’t stick around last year was for this exact reason. It was a smaller pond, but that meant it took less people to make it toxic.
  • I love Westerns and I’ve been hopefully optimistic about Kevin Costner’s latest epic Western set of films, but now that I’ve seen a full trailer, I’m extremely excited. It looks amazing. Horizon: An American Saga.
  • My lack of working out and terrible eating habits are catching up with me. I’ve got to reprioritize my focus on my health in the upcoming weeks. I can’t keep putting this off.
  • I worked really hard on my Links page. I’ve added a ton of personal blogs and fixed some errors. I’ll always be adding to it, but now it feels complete.
  • Last night, Sting, one of my all-time favorite wrestlers retired. I had the opportunity to meet him a few years ago.



  • Arrow Season 1 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – I watched the first four or five seasons of Arrow when it aired and really enjoyed it. A month or so ago, I decided to rewatch the pilot and was shocked by how good it was. I think I miss those simple, fun superhero shows that are bogged down by ten characters and increasingly absurd plotlines. I’m working my way through the middle of season one and I’m still really enjoying it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – This film is sort of Dream Warriors meets Are You Afraid of the Dark? meets Nick Arcade. It stars Peter Billingsley, Megan Ward, Seth Green, and John de Lancie in a script by David S. Goyer, featuring fun low-budget green screen effects, and it’s all presented from a VHS rip on Tubi. Definitely not for everybody, but I really enjoyed it. Then again, I love a good “bad” 90’s film. My only regret is not having seen this movie back in 1993 when I was ten, because I would have loved it. It’s definitely a product of its time and that was the charm for me.


  • Elsbeth ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – I’m not familiar with The Good Wife/Good Fight, but I enjoyed the creators other show Evil, so I decided to give this quirky detective show a shot. I really liked it. It was a lot of fun.
  • Fired Up ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – This raunchy teen comedy was way more fun than expected.


  • WRC Generations (Xbox Series X) – I’ve had an urge to play some rally racing, so I decided to take advantage of a sale and picked up Generations over EA Rally after comparing some videos. The game is solid, and I love the feel of being on the edge out of out of control, but I really REALLY miss the haptic feedback on the triggers from the DualShock that I had on WRC 9 on PS5.
  • Easy Red II (Xbox Series X) – I heard some great things about this $9 World War II shooter, so I decided to check it out for myself. I understand it’s rough around the edges, but so far, I’ve been a bit underwhelmed. I think I need to spend a bit more time with it.

Listened To

    • Battlestar Galactica* Soundtrack
  • Dune 2 Soundtrack


  • Superman and the Authority – Vol. 1* ⭐️⭐️
  • Flex Mentallo Man of Muscle Mystery by Grant Morrison ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Captain America (2023-Current) Issues 1-5 by J. Michael Straczynski ⭐️⭐️- The artwork in the first couple of issues was pretty terrible. I’m a huge JMS fan but this book is doing little for me. I appreciate his attempt at using the past as a mirror for the present but it’s just not the best story.
