I tried to do that! It was so cool and I thought it was hard at first but the video made it easy. It was going good until I realised you can not export it to other pieces of technology! Dang it! I was mad but mabey they will fix that. Thanks for reading!

PBS really blew it. Very uncomfortable watching with my kids having to debate whether to explain what an 88 tattoo signifies (I left that part out, we'll tackle white nationalists and neo-nazis in another talk about what to beware of living here in the South) and what Make America Great Again means to Trump and his supporters.
PETE TILLY: This is my first time I have ever worked on political campaign. My family members are joining me, my son, my daughter-in-law, and my grandchild. It's been such an awesome experience. And, father God, we just thank you that you're going to use Donald Trump for your glory in your ...

Travel, the holidays, illness, then work all conspired to make this review post as late as it is. But we've got a long time, it turns out, until the next episode, so I think I can be forgiven for stalling. We've got a long gap to fill. 

So, the question becomes, what do wall think about Chibnall taking over after S10??? I touch on it within, but am feeling ambivalent. Initially despondent, it took being reminded that he wrote "42" for me to start feeling hopeful.

Sounds fascinating. Glad to see him returning to climate change consequence (assuming this is the cause of the water rise in the novel). Such a large percentage of people live close enough to coastal areas that this scenario will be played out repeatedly.

I've never been a huge comics buff. Collected a few titles, but mostly quirky interests (Green Hornet, Top Cow's Battle of the Planets), am no aficionado. But this may just pull me in. I'll leave the analysis to the experts, but can recommend this to other comics dabblers/noobs, who might be considering getting into a title for the first time, or first time in years.
I'm black. I'm from West Baltimore. I've lived in black communities all my life; it's the experience I know. I can't help but pull from that. It's a part of me, but I think the notion that by writing out of an African American experience, it necessarily means no one else will want to see ...

Leading up to a 75th anniversary theatrical viewing of The Maltese Falcon, I've been re-watching Huston's classic adaption and re-reading Hammett's novel. It remains a favorite, though I see through different eyes now that I'm about the age of Spade's ill-fated partner, Miles Archer, ...

I wish that Clara did not have to die in such a gruesome way. She was irreplaceable in my opinion. But her new acting role will fit her nicely. Long live the companion!

Introduction
Blogging primarily about Doctor Who while I watch (and re-watch) the entire series. 

Sure, I could have chosen any number of other shows to bounce my interest in philosophy, history, progressive politics, secularism, and pop culture off; but, while others have burned brighter for periods of time, no other series has held my interest for so long. Nor is another likely to.

I've been a few times now and can heartily recommend the pulled pork and Aviator Monster (pulled pork, brisket, and bacon) sandwiches. The brisket in the sandwich was fine, not as jerky-like as the serving E.B. got in his/her April 1, 2011 review. Friendly service at the tables and at the bar. It was a little slow the first time, but that's to be expected in the first month of a new restaurant's operation. Has been quicker both times since that first visit. The baked beans have great flavor and the fries were very good. Will definitely keep going back for more.
