Sunday, Sunday / Monday, Monday (32) + (33)

These two Sunday, Sunday’s are late and short, as the last thirteen days of October were full of horror films with my Thirteen Nights of Halloween Horror (that I stuck to!).

Am I okay? I think so. I honestly thought I’d be having varying nightmares each night depending on whatever film I was watching, but I’ve been A-Okay … I hope anyway. I may have gotten through thirteen films consecutively, but now my time is consumed with preparing for the release of The Punisher.

 I’ll be reviewing the series for The National Student, so I’ve somehow got to cram the last season of Daredevil, and then the first seasons of Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. To be fair, I don’t really need to watch the other three series to be ready for Punisher, but my brother is forcing me to lmao. 

I’m not what you would consider a ‘traditional’ binge-watcher. I’ve mentioned it before, but I tend to start series, forget about them, then start another. However, I finally managed to finish the entirety of Gilmore Girls (which took so, so long) and – more impressively – watched the second season of Stranger Things in less than a week.

Once I’ve gotten through all the Marvel shows, Ozark and Mindhunter are at the top of my list. I still need to finish The Confession Tapes, a series that I highly recommend if you’ve run out of shows to watch on Netflix. 

Oh, by the way, I am Luke Danes. No question. 

Saturday Night Live has always intrigued me, especially how they produce and perform the show live. As I had come to believe, it is absolutely insane. There is no way I could work on there without having a nervous breakdown. I commend the cast and crew of SNL to produce shows each Saturday like they do, so much work is put into performances, set design, costuming and production that needs to be appreciated more often. 

Seems like my gushing over Noel Gallagher’s new material has paid off, and I couldn’t be more elated.

Researching and discovering theme parks and Disney-related things is a passion of mine. Since I don’t live in Orlando nor Los Angeles, I live vicariously through channels such as TheTimTracker.

I’ve been to both Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim, but I haven’t been able to study and visit the parks as much as I’d like to. Especially in Hollywood/Los Angeles itself in relation to old relics that Walt Disney left behind in various restaurants and bars that Tim and Jenn discover and visit below. 

I’ll let the legendary Frank Stefanko speak of his photography with Springsteen. Unfortunately, the book - Bruce Springsteen: Further Up the Road - will be limited to a number of copies, but Rolling Stone has featured some of the most memorable pieces of work with Stefanko's commentary. 

Is there anymore I can say, other than I officially died on November 2, 2017, when I first witnessed Jeff Goldblum's interview with IGN.

Then again when he gleefully reviewed fan tattoos of himself. We truly do not deserve him.

I saw Blade Runner 2049 a couple weeks back and cannot praise it enough. I haven’t been to a film in so long that has left me beaming whilst contemplating the entirety of my life.

I’m seeing Thor: Ragnarok in two hours so let’s see if I get a similar reaction. 

Nintendo is going all out with the last two installments of Pokemon on the 3DS, man. I mean, I was excited about Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon, but the fact that I can finally catch a Charmander? WHAT.

Like, forget about the legendaries (I’m kidding, don’t, I’m stoked about that too). I have been dying to use the Poke Bank thing to transfer the original starters from X and Y over to Sun and Moon and now I don’t have to go to that effort.  

All I’m hoping for now is the announcement of a dawn Lycanroc.
