Happy New Year!!! Hope everyone has a great 2016.
I’m late but Happy New Year!!! Hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I’ve been off from work this past week. I spent my week either running around doing errands, doing some house cleaning or just chilling out and watching movies such as Revolutionary Road, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, Rush Hour, Wall Street and The Stratton Story just to name a few. Right now I’m watching the original The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974).
I’ve been enjoying my time off from work but it’s been cold as heck outside. Yesterday and today we had some serious winds. We had a huge snowstorm a couple of weekends ago. And it was nice being off from work that Monday before Christmas. Uncle Sam rarely shuts down due to snow. It’s gotta be major for a shutdown.
As you’ve noticed I haven’t been doing much blogging in the past few months. To be honest I just haven’t been in a blogging mood despite everything going on lately including Tiger Woods and his hoochies and those oh so dreadful Washington Redskins.
For the past week I’ve been trying to decide if I want to buy a usb turntable so I can download my albums and 12 inch singles on my pc. There’s just so much music I could be listening to on my mp3 player that’s sitting there in album land. I was hanging around Amazon.com a couple of days ago when I saw an album by a group who’s song I loved back in the 80’s. The song is called Somebody and it’s by a group called Brilliant. They’re a British group who really didn’t make it big here in the U.S. But Somebody is such a cool song that I bought the 12 inch single when it was released back in the day. This is an example of songs that I could be listening to on my mp3 player.
Yeah I know I’m a few days late. So Happy New Year to ya anyway!!
I haven’t been spending too much time on the internet in the past few weeks. Is that a good thing? Who knows? Will it last? I doubt it. I’ve been checking my emails and visiting a few of my favorite sites. But I’ve been spending alot of time these past few weeks watching dvds and catching up on my movies I recorded on my dvr. I’ve been watching The Wire through Netflix. Excellent tv show. Yesterday I finished watching Season 3, episode 5-7. I mailed my dvds this morning so I should be getting my next group of dvds on Wednesday. I have the entire series in my queue. I noticed quite a few familiar faces from Homicide Life on the Street appearing in The Wire. Could The Wire be the next tv show I end up buying at Amazon.com? The complete series is available at Amazon. I did buy the entire Gilmore Girls collection. Amazon.com had each season below $16.00 each. What a bargain!!!!! So I now own the entire Gilmore Girls series. I bought the complete dvd set for Homicide Life on the Street last summer.
If you’re looking for a very interesting horror film check out 30 Days of Night. I saw it on cable and I have to say it was pretty good. The movie is about an Alaska town that’s invaded by vampires during the period when the town stays dark for 30 days. I watched this movie right before it was time for me to go to bed. Not a good idea, lol.
