☹ Sad News…
I finished watching Season 1 of The Last Kingdom, the TV series adaptation of the first two books of Bernard Cornwell‘s Saxon series of historical novels set in 9th and 10th century Britain. I liked it a lot and hope they renew it for a second season and continue to adapt the books. Very well done.
This scene from Episode 8 tickled my funny bone. Spoilers ahead so read no further if you want to experience this for yourself…. Continue reading The Last Kingdom Season 1 Finale
Much of what I do would be considered blue-collar, manual labor. And I kind of like it. You can see what you have accomplished each day. I care what other’s think of my work and ethic, but mostly, I care what I think about it.
“People call this blue-collar. I don’t care what color your shirt is. You bring pride to the job, people notice. Even if they don’t, you notice.”

I’ve been really liking The Last Kingdom, the BBC production of Bernard Cornwell’s “The Saxon Stories“. This line from episode four really grabbed me.
King Alfred: “Why do you not pray to God?”
Uhtred: “God… created everything that surrounds me… the fields, rivers, the forests. The land is my church. And I pray each day, Lord. In silence.”

While I probably wouldn’t recommend this dog food, (I am not a dog food expert by any means), I do recommend these commercials. VERY cool. I always watched my dog dreaming and tried to imagine what he was doing in his dreams. I like to think it would be something like what you see in these commercials. My absolute favorite is this first one of these. The last is pretty humorous too. Continue Reading & Watch Some Cool Dog Videos →
Today spent working (it’s my ‘friday’) and processing a bunch of photos I took yesterday while watching football playoffs. So no time to take new pics so today’s 365 photo is a shot of football on my TV thrown into Photoshop and distorted with a spherize filter.
PS: Denver Broncos were about to score. Yay!
First: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes was born on this day in 1854.
Second: I watched the first two episodes of season three of the BBC series Sherlock.
While the new Sherlock episodes were fun and quite good, considering that there are only a total of three episodes in the entire season and I just watched two-thirds of them, where are the MYSTERIES? The mysteries should be the CENTER of any Sherlock Holmes tale. The ones that have appeared so far seem to be like appetizers to a meal that is never provided. I have an idea where they may go with the last episode, but really… So much wasted potential.
Just watched The Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Special “The Time of the Doctor”. It wasn’t all I hoped it would be, but it was still a pretty good send off of the most recent Doctor.
Good bye, Mat Smith.
Hello, Peter Capaldi. Looking forward to meeting your “Doctor” soon.
Well, on the Day AFTER the Doctor, I finally managed to watch the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor. All I can say is:
HOLY CRAP THAT WAS *AWESOME*!
God, I love Stargate SG-1, even all these years later. Just rewatched the episode The Fifth Race and this scene always cracks me up. Found someone who posted it on YouTube:
