    Predictably, to me at least, I finished season 2. Judging from my last post, it took me about two weeks to watch 11 episodes. And that is a thing with this show. I never felt compelled to watch an episode. And each episode did not encourage another. It is just so slow. The episodes are only an hour, but they felt so much longer. I really don't know what to say about it. I will note that the first five or so minutes of the last episode are straight out of a Shadow King / Professor X comic book battle. It did not make up for everything else, but it looked cool.

    Weird Dreams

    So, I'm in the crowd at an NXT event at Full Sail University. Whatever match is happening, it is broken up with a run-in by Emma. Then Emma introduces her new tag team partner, Radar O'Reilly. Not Gary Burghoff. Radar. And he cuts a great babyface promo about wanting to be the best, but first he has to go home. Jump cut to me and Radar arriving at an amalgam of my old job, my current job and the 4077. We walk inside and Jamie Farr starts yelling at us for being late. Not Klinger, Jamie Farr. So, they start arguing. I pick up a jar of salsa that is on the floor (because dream) and put it on the desk. Jamie Farr picks it up mistaking it for his coffee cup and takes a huge chug and dream ends. I get the wrestling part. I watched NXT right before sleeping. That makes sense. But I haven't watched M*A*S*H in years. No idea where that came from.

    First time you felt old

    Today I had to go check on my parents house while they enjoy vacation. My mom wanted me to check that the basement wasn't flooded. So I went down the stairs. The stairs that I used to play on and fall down all the time. Like all the time. How else was Donatello supposed to do a quintuple backflip off a building onto Bebop unless I ran full speed down the stairs? But I was 10 and made of rubber then. 20+ years later and falling down stairs isn't as much fun. In fact, it hurts like a motherfucker. In other news, I have no idea where I put my knee brace.

    So, I've had season two just sitting here since it aired. Didn't want to watch week to week and then I wanted to watch other things first. Finally thought 'Right, it is only 11 episodes, it is a rainy weekend, let's just kill the season and move on.' And I watched one episode after college football yesterday and I cannot muster up whatever to continue today. And it is not like it is all that different than season one. It is still the 'Wacky, Crazy, Smart' show, but cranked up a couple of levels. This requires a level of concentration that I simply cannot provide in a marathon type situation.

    Found this guy and holy crap is he awesome. His puppeteering is just outstanding.

    The 'Who Attacked Alistair Black" story in NXT is this amazing mix of corny, stupid and awesome. The security footage being 'enhanced ' to 'clearly' see a lone figure standing on a rooftop? I love it so much. And what impresses me is that Black gets hurt and they put this all together in a few days. And I have no idea who will be revealed as the attacker. A mystery that is an actual mystery? Bold move.

    Dave Grohl made a thing. That thing being a 23 minute instrumental in which he plays everything. Because why not?

    So, the Aquabats are doing the kickstarter thing. I don't think it will get funded, but they uploaded the 2nd season and it is all new to me.

    Okay, Cloak & Dagger. I plowed thru this over the weekend. So many thoughts about specific things so spoiler tags for that. General idea: Took way too long to get where they got. Season 2 should be better.

    Been watching random videos of Prince live. I'm not one for live shows, but man I would have loved to see him live.

    The "I need to vent" thread

    Been dealing with a dog that will not shut the fuck up. It is my neighbors dog. We share a common wall and when the neighbor goes out, the dog will whimper and whine and bark. For hours on end. I had informed the landlord as I could never catch the neighbor at home. Today was the fourth (possibly fifth) time I made a complaint. I made a point that I really did not want to file a noise complaint, but I had inquired at the police station if I had a valid claim. And indeed I do. But I really do not want to go that route. But whatever was being done to stop the nonstop barking was clearly not working. I think I have been pretty reasonable up until now so I may need to take that step. Magically, I get a knock on my door. Oh hey, it is my neighbor I've never seen before with a small little dog. A tiny girl, maybe 19, with a small little dog that is a recently retired service dog that is apparently going thru anxiety issues. Wonderful. She apologized and offered the explanation/excuse. And here I am now. If the dog barks again I can either just sit on my couch and grow increasing annoyed or be a massive asshat and file a noise complaint on a young girl and her anxiety ridden service dog. Fuck.

    I'd say NXT does the best with their champions, if you count NXT as WWE (and I can understand both sides of that discussion). Everyone has an eye of the champion, title shots have to be earned and they don't happen all that often. Beyond being just an amazing match, the most recent Mustache Mountain vs. Undisputed Era match was entirely about how important the Tag Team Championships were to those four men. Side note: If you haven't watched that match, do so. I went in spoiled (which I hate and normally kills it for me) and it didn't matter. I was totally sucked in and loved every minute.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2018

    Crossroads - I know I've seen this before, but that must have been 25ish years ago. Been on a blues kick so this popped into my head. It's okay. Not much happens and Ralph Macchio is not very good. I can see why I had little memory of this.

    Watched the 2nd season of Timeless over the past week. Something occurred to me about halfway in. Time travel fiction has an inherent shelf life for me. The longer the story goes, the less logical it becomes and I get less interested. That said, I still enjoyed the season and hope they do get that proposed post-cancellation movie to resolve the series.

    Definitely my favorite thing I've seen today
  17. Cheers for the help distracting from my six hour road trip. Viscera in a wind tunnel might be the peak, but Weekend at Terry's hit at just the right time to be the funniest thing ever.

    Continuing my finishing of seasons lands on Ash vs. the Evil Dead. Wasn't really feeling this season. Still love the cast, but the story no so much. But it definitely picked up on the back half. It ramped up to a satisfying (and large) enough conclusion to the season, and as it turns out, the series and probably the character. Even the coda worked for me.

    Been sitting here for the past half hour trying to enter the Post Wrestling G1 prediction contest. And it is way harder than I thought it would be. Predicting block/overall winner(s) is rather simple. Then looking at the schedule and trying to have drama on the last day and working backwards with points. And then you look multiple guys have zero points. And then you try a spreadsheet. And that was not wise. Now I feel like a need a room full of white boards and a montage. All that to say, new respect to Gedo for booking all of this.

    For some reason I stopped watching any show over the back half of their respective seasons. Time to catch up. iZombie has went downhill so fast this past season. Not that it was on that high of a hill to begin with. Riverdale has this thing. It isn't good. All the characters are not good people (save maybe one). They can't stop with the murder-killin'. Yet, I enjoy it? Maybe? Why? Blindspot is a show that no one watches. It had an interesting enough mystery for the first season and second season to finish it off. This third season hasn't been the greatest, but still had moments. Then the season finale had to go all 'last 3 episodes of Chuck' and I say fuck that.

    Random question: Is there any fiction that deals with a cured zombie outbreak, more specifically people dealing with the fact they were zombies that killed/ate people?

    I love Air. I really do. Moon Safari is most likely my favorite album. Not just by Air, I mean favorite album full stop. I come to realize that in the past year. And yet, I find a concert on YouTube and it really weird to see them play. Kinda like peaking behind the curtain and seeing the true Oz. So weird.

    3 really. One is a concert film, which I wouldn't call a movie.
