Bearded Guys With Swords

The Last Kingdom just released their new season en masse instead of weekly like they did last year. I suspect the algorithm discovered people bided their time and binged a few at a time or all of it. The show, in nutshell, deals with a Saxon-turned-Dane named Uthred as he walks between two worlds at … Continue reading Bearded Guys With Swords

Music Monday: Through Heaven’s Eyes Sung By Brian Stokes Mitchell

Mondays mean another installment of Wolverine: The Long Night, unspooling the mysterious goings-on in Burns, Alaska. While the bloke takes centre stage as Logan, Brian Stokes Mitchell adds his melodic voice as Prophet, the cult leader with stuff to hide. (Of course.) Mitchell already graced Broadway stages in Man of La Manchester among other credits … Continue reading Music Monday: Through Heaven’s Eyes Sung By Brian Stokes Mitchell

Happy New Year!

Good-bye 2017, try not to let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. I decided on a solitary new year, something younger me would think makes a person a loser, usually because someone else said it and I believed it as gospel. I watched The Avengers and its sequel yet again, … Continue reading Happy New Year!

Music Monday: Come On Get Happy by The Partridge Family

"So much wasted time." I read the Twitter moment quoting David Cassidy's final words, shared by his daughter Katie (aka Black Canary on Arrow.) Cassidy's passing had many women reflect on their teen years with his picture on their walls, spinning his records as the soundtrack to their fantasies. I watched the reruns like everyone … Continue reading Music Monday: Come On Get Happy by The Partridge Family

Music Monday: Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler

Like I need to tell anyone why this song got picked.

Reading In Progress: Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

It's my favourite story to tell from my bookselling days. An innocent instruction to a customer motivated me to read the book everyone talked about, Diana Gabaldon's Outlander. Long story short, during one of my early cash shifts at McNally Robinson Booksellers I told a customer the line-up began in the centre. The woman came to … Continue reading Reading In Progress: Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

An Interesting Read: The Silent Spiral and Social Media

I still have a half-completed post on Into the Storm to finish, but this proved too good not to share.  I originally got the summary from Tech Crunch, but I wanted people to have a good look at the actual link below. I admit to doing my fair share of shying away. I do it … Continue reading An Interesting Read: The Silent Spiral and Social Media

The Long Weekend Mix

After a week filled with conferences, I will publish on Monday, it's time to kick back and procrastinate catch up on a few things.  Currently in my ears music from an app called rdio.  People can listen to it for free from a laptop, or pay a small fee and have an app stream music from a … Continue reading The Long Weekend Mix

Midweek Geekiness: Just Twittering Around

Before Stacks and Ranges the blog, I created @stacksandranges the Twitter handle.  The reason is quite simple and involves a guy.  In this case it involves Nathan Fillion and some grand scheme to have him fall in love with my brain, then live happily ever after.  My following, and followers, reflect my eclectic tastes.  I … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness: Just Twittering Around
