The “Three Word Movie” Game

I had fun yesterday on Facebook with a bit of a friend-participation game.  It’s a challenge, a fun challenge at that. Take any movie, and try to challenge people to identify it. But you’re only allowed to use three words to describe the movie. And, as a tougher challenge, you’re not allowed to use any…

So Harry Azcrac graduated … huh huh huh huh…

It’s gotten to the point where we need a good old-fashioned bathroom joke to get us through this COVID-19 crapola. And it came in the form of the governor of Mississippi, who participated in a virtual graduation ceremony.  During the ceremony, he read off the names of the graduates … and one name somehow made…

Longtime readers of this blog will immediately know that for me, the holiday season culminates with me chasing the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train throughout New York State.  It brings me personal joy, from seeing the concerts provided at each train stop, to photographing the big, illuminated train as it winds its way through the Adirondacks.…

The Jericho Drive-In will show movies starting this Friday!!

It seems like a million years ago.  But it was March of this year, when I wrote this blog post about whether drive-in movie theaters could operate, in a limited capacity, during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

One of my friends, who writes blogs under the name Lazygal, has been sending “dad jokes” to all her friends.  Each morning, I could log into my e-mail account, and there’s a corny but clean dose of humor.  I don’t know if she’s getting them from a site or if she’s composing them herself, I…

Could that empty Diet Coke can be worth lots of money?

A few days ago, I received my grocery deliveries.  As I was running low on soda, I ordered three 12-packs of soda – Diet Coke, Fresca and Orange Vanilla Coke Zero. The next day, I reached in the fridge, pulled out a can of Diet Coke … and … Wait, this can feels a bit…

You mean I can get an After the Rain face mask? Wow…

I am all for supporting those people who can make homemade and home-stitched face masks.  I think it’s hella cool that they can do this.  I’ve actually purchased some face masks from some of my friends, in that I know we’re going to need to wear them for a very long time.  Trust me, COVID-19…

There’s a website out there called Cameo, in which you can pay to have an athlete, actor, musician, public figure, whomever, wish your best bud a Happy Birthday or a congratulations or the like.  You could get Rick Harrison from Pawn Stars to congratulate you on your retirement; you could get Kevin Conroy to do…

That’s what we need today … two pandas getting their freak on…

I keep thinking about all we’ve lost this year.  Maybe it’s the developing PTSD from the COVID-19 sequestration, maybe it’s hearing all the frightening news each morning and not seeing any glimmers of hope. And to think … only a couple of months ago, we were bemoaning 2020 as the year Kobe Bryant was killed…
