Is this worthy of a blind buy or just a rent?

Even THO was seen smiling with a little more spring in his hooves.
And when you figure THO is a bourbon, beer and whiskey beast that's impressive.
You know, you could probably re-purpose a chocolate fountain to tequila, of course you'll need Santa's help to fill it... The small ones can do 5lb of chocolate and go up from there depending on the size of your event.

One bourbon, one scotch and one tequila fountain. With THO and his cronies we'll need the industrial size fountain. Come on, Santa. We're counting on you.

Rewatching Man in the High Castle, after a marathon Game of Thrones session. I watched it on release and liked it but wasn't paying much attention and decided to give it a go with dedicated attention. I pulled up some reviews and saw a one star for the simple item of each city in the pilot being cloudy and rainy.

It's about time for the ol' planet killer asteroid to stop by.

I know I'm posting late; I have been doing a lot of traveling lately. But I couldn't fail to acknowledge the passing of George Romero.

I live not far from Monroeville Mall where the original Dawn of the Dead was filmed, and the mall had a special rest in peace message up on the main sign that thousands of cars stream past every day. Also they had a wreath of flowers placed inside the mall and people could leave cards and flowers of their own.

I was lucky enough to meet George several years ago and he was a great guy. I never missed each new George Romero movie since discovering him many decades ago, and I'm going to miss seeing new Romero movies. Such a loss to the horror community, but he can rightfully take his place with the great ones.

I know what you mean. I spend the day writing code so looking at a book doesn't seem like a good idea in the evening and watching a screen 8' away is more relaxing on the eyes. A friend who is an optometrist confirmed this.

I watched this in 2d and partially in 3d and it is a decent film! A lot of people are poo pooing it but I really liked it! If you want to see the original Manga (anime) version it is for sale at Amazon or Bestbuy me thinks.

Watched it last night and liked it too. I don't have time for all the SJW's and all their crying. Another reason I don't do the instaface and hashbrowns. I'll look into the anime. I love Akira and own that one.

Which is bad enough that more screen time is better for your screen time . I do want to read some of the stuff that's come out but just can't.

Different style of anime but possibly to your liking, Kill La Kill. It's a short but effective revenge tale. So no worries about it having 9046 episodes.

I get in arguments with people who seem to believe that books are special. They're not. They're just another medium like TV and movies are. That said, I bought several of the Charlaine Harris books that "True Blood" was based on when it was running. Her writing style doesn't exactly translate into a TV series so they were taking story ideas from them. Same is probably true of "Midnight Texas" but she is an entertaining writer.

Some books are special but I'm way past time for another pillar of my being to come from one. I'll never read The Stand for the first time again or The Hobbit. I do agree they are just another medium with the exception of some modern philosophy items that you can't get in a movie. Most recently would be The Quantum and The Lotus. No way it can be a movie.

Mississippi River Sharks, 8 p.m. ET

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2
Trailer Park Shark, 8 p.m. ET

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3
Toxic Shark, 8 p.m. ET

SATURDAY, AUGUST 5

And to help get the party started a little something-something for all my AVS peeps. Fins up!
