Waking Up to Monday: "Waiting For Somebody" by Peter Westerberg

Hi!  Me and The Hubs just got back from Barcelona.  Loved it.  Prior to the trip, I subjected my Man to "When Harry Met Sally" on Netflix, a movie I myself had only seen in small doses.  It was okay, but he couldn't stand it.  So to make it up to him, I put on one of my all-time faves "Singles", which he enjoyed waaaaay more.  I hadn't watched it in a long while, but whenever I do, the music always gets stuck in my head.

Waking Up to Monday: Where I blame EVERYTHING on Stranger Things 2



The last two episodes of the new season shaped my entire weekend mindset!!!  I couldn't even get into the proper Marvel headspace last night when we went to see Thor: Ragnarok, all because of this freakin' show!  And heaven help me, I can't stop re-binging.

Waking Up to Monday: "Three Little Pigs" by Green Jelly

I'm so glad I had this song in my head first thing before that dang Eduard Khil song infected my brain.  Thanks a bunch, Google.  Tro-lo-lohhhhhhhhhhh...

Happy Labor Day!

Waking Up to Monday: "Through the Fire" by Chaka Kahn

I'm back.  We had family fly in and hang out with us for almost a week.  Also, I kept getting up late for the last 2-3 weeks.  I blame everything except for myself.

Waking Up to Monday: Opening theme to "Tonari no Seki-Kun"

The anime is basically about a kid who loafs off in class in the most imaginative ways without leaving his desk, and his antics constantly distracts his classmate sitting beside him.  It's awesome, I love it.

Saturday Night Viewing: Spider-Man: Homecoming

I find myself missing Andrew Garfield in the role.  It's weird, but I do.  I mean, I'm glad for this latest one finally bringing our Friendly Neighborhood Webslinger back into the MCU, it's just that Tom Holland isn't doing much for me.  Maybe when Infinity Wars rolls around, I'll think differently.  The Hubs thinks this latest incarnation is the stupidest one yet, and thinks the Captain America PSAs were far more entertaining than all of the Spider-Man scenes combined.  Ouch.

The one thing we both agree on is that Michael Keaton, aka Beetlejuice, aka MY Batman, aka Birdman, and now Adrian Toomes/The Vulture was the best character in the movie.  I wanted more of him.  In fact everytime Tony Stark appeared, I thought vehemently No, bring back Michael Keaton!  Seriously, more Michael Keaton.

I'm pretty sure that this is my last Spider-Man movie, like, ever.  I'm so fatigued by this character and every new incarnation, every new face.  I'm done.  I'm still going to watch the movies that feature him, but I'm so done with his solo movies.  Although...if they brought Miles Morales to the big screen...

Sunday Night Viewing: The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Sweet Christmas, this was a fun movie!  It was loads more epic than the first, with plenty of laughs.  Came for Baby Groot and the soundtrack, both didn't disappoint.  Karen Gillan had more screen time, love it!

Sunday Afternoon Viewing: 'Kong: Skull Island'

Tom Hiddleston is buff and pretty, but John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, and John C. Reilly are the real acting chops of this movie.  Oh, and Kong is good too.

Saturday Afternoon Viewing: Logan

Not so much the Wolverine we all know and love, but still dangerous when you piss him off.  This movie ages him, strips him of the bright and shiny superhero veneer, and lets him be the hard-drinking hard-ass we see in the comics.
