Music Monday: The Wedding by Bear McCreary (From Outlander)

If you watched Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Da Vinci's Demons, or Outlander, you heard the music of Bear McCreary enhancing some of your memorable scenes. Last week #Droughtlander, the name given to the ridiculous hiatus initiated by Starz, got a little relief in the form of the soundtrack release. Between getting the email from … Continue reading Music Monday: The Wedding by Bear McCreary (From Outlander)

Music Monday: The Avengers by Alan Silvestri and Thor: The Dark World by Brian Tyler

Trailer 2 for Avengers: Age of Ultron released just last week. While Alan Silvestri will not score the sequel, Brian Tyler will prove a good successor. Here's a two-for-the-price-of-one music Monday. http://rd.io/x/QcawkTdeUqiA/ http://rd.io/x/QcawkTddAnBt/

Music Monday: Courage and Wisdom by Howard Shore

Just Tweeted how I would play this and not cry. Mission failed. How can anyone play this track and not have a tear roll down a cheek? Whatever the criticisms about the last movie people may have, the Bilbo/Thorin scene met my expectations. http://rd.io/x/QcawkTdc2G9m/

Midweek Geekiness: Hobbits, and Heroes, and At-Home-Sick Oh My!

The sage advice series I put together last week to experiment with the sticky-post widget on WordPress. Good thing too as I am at home sick with pneumonia since October 20th. After a week of antibiotics, I have two puffers to open up my airways. Trust me, people take breathing for granted until they have trouble … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness: Hobbits, and Heroes, and At-Home-Sick Oh My!

The Outlandish Sunday of The Walking Dead

After Thanksgiving with the family, I headed over to S's place to watch the season première of The Walking Dead. It's safe to say what I will say next, and it applies to Outlander, will contain spoilers for both shows. Why write about both? On one hand, it represents two sides of my tastes. I … Continue reading The Outlandish Sunday of The Walking Dead

Finally, the Thorin Poster

Yowza, Yowza, Yowza, Yowza, Yowza, Yowza, Yowza…and at some point blasted idiot as he makes reckless choices in the last movies. In a way this was the Thorin I waited for since I read the books. The guy under the make up made us remember it’s not always that way, and it doesn’t happen overnight.
And now back to yowza, yowza, yowza, yowza, yowza…

An Infographic to Set The-Walking-Dead Mood

This came from a reblog courtesy of the Toronto Public Library's Tumblr, but the original came from a Tumblr belonging to Kate Willaert. I linked to both her home page, with the graphic below linked to its original source. Why? I wanted to get in the mood for next week. While Canada gathers around to … Continue reading An Infographic to Set The-Walking-Dead Mood

A Coincidental Purchase

Between Twitter and Tumblr stalking, this story seems appropriate.  It begins with getting a bus pass from the college bookstore.  While they do sell textbooks and supplies, on occasion they have some well-priced books for the heck of it.  One of them caught my eye:   Interesting, I thought.  I picked up the book, priced at … Continue reading A Coincidental Purchase

A Post In Which Our Heroine Gets Stuck And Resorts To Fangirlish Things To Get…Well Unstuck

Seriously how old am I? Obviously old enough to post this: Like the subject line says I am stuck. I should rephrase that...I am stuck AGAIN!  Why?  I overthink things that's why.  I also broke a primary commandment in blogging...thou shalt write for thyself and see if others like it. For now I content myself … Continue reading A Post In Which Our Heroine Gets Stuck And Resorts To Fangirlish Things To Get…Well Unstuck
