Sunday Morning Open Thread

Sunday Morning Open Thread

Posted around 11ish as that’s about the time Sunday’s should start.

I’m on a short vacation with my family. They’re (parent, siblings, siblings spouses and children of various ages) staying the week but I’m just there for a long weekend. Because I like my family but after a week might not.

It’s mostly fine. We’ve got two unit close together and I have my own bed if not my own room....

Someone posted a mere nine reasons to drink tea (included in the list is that it's easier than coffee to make - please - nothing awesome comes easy*). Here are ELEVEN reasons to choose coffee.

Remakes Are Occassionally Better

Remakes Are Occassionally Better

It’s a rare thing but once in a while the remake is actually better than the original. For as much as I loved the original as a kid (seriously, I may still have a few action figures in my basement), the 2004 reboot was far superior.

Spiritualism and Cats Everywhere

Spiritualism and Cats Everywhere

I’m not much of a believer in God/Goddess or gods or spirits or ghosts but you never know. And while I take issue with many organized religions and the harm they do, I otherwise try not to judge people’s beliefs (which is not to say some things don’t get a bit of side-eye because that’s my nature) because whatever gets you through the days, man. Life can be tough.

So when a friend asked me to...

Korean Season Three Hannibal Promo

Korean Season Three Hannibal Promo

I love this trailer. Perhaps not as much as the Season One promo video (which I will not attempt to hunt down) but still very fun.

ETA Trailers from earlier seasons but I can’t find the one I was thinking of so I must continue searching (dammit - I have things to do).

Hannibal could be anywhere

Perhaps even at the zoo on this lovely spring day.

Although since he’s currently on the run, he probably wouldn’t tweet about it if her were.

FALAFEL ATOMI (Atomic Falafel) - MWFF

FALAFEL ATOMI (Atomic Falafel) - MWFF

The next movie I saw in Montreal was the Israeli comedy Atomic Falafel. I’m going to be honest and admit I picked this movie based solely on its name. I mean, how I could I not? It turned out to be a good pick.

It’s hard enough to be a teenager, working in the family Falafel food truck with her mother, who’s still grieving over her widowhood. But Nofar Azrian, 15, sells falafel to...

A Note to Backtalkers 

A Note to Backtalkers 

It appears backtalk is having some issues due to my limited posting these days. I mean, of course you are. Unfortunately, work’s been entirely too busy and exhausting for me to figure out what’s going on — although I bet part of the problem is without me to keep things in line, Snacks is allowing her cat overlord to cause problems. Hopefully the powerball thing will work out for me soon and I...

Pie is per usual doing an excellent job of introducing us some high quality generally lesser known films we might otherwise miss in this world full of superhero blockbusters. His Jane Got a Gun post make me think of my favorite Jane led western - Cat Ballou staring Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin. And Lee Marvin.

Hannibal's Round Up

Hannibal's Round Up

I foolishly agreed to do this roundup (too much work) to promote my wicked awesome new Hannibal kinja (how’s that for self promotion?). So if you want to talk about the exquisite horror that is Hannibal, just post here and I’ll make you an author.

Call for Authors (Also Commenters)

Since I couldn’t get anyone to do it for me, I finally broke down and created this kinja using…

Yeah, yeah. I know. There's some sort of no call outs rule on groupthink. For the good of the community, I'll have to risk it. Because I'm pretty sure we can all agree an exception needs to be made in this case because SOMEONE...you know who you are...needs to be called out for introducing me (and perhaps you) to the...

It's 8am and 2 degrees outside (possible up a bit from when I walked my dog in the polar vortex that is my street these days) on a Saturday morning. I have already been up for nearly three hours and "working" for over two. It's so cold in my office still that I am wearing a hat and gloves.

Clearly, I should be in bed....

Lovely Lazy Sunday Morning

Lovely Lazy Sunday Morning

Bindi would say good morning but she’s busy taking a morning nap.

It’s supposed to be sunny and warm today (approaching 80s) so I’m trying to talk myself into doing yard work soon rather than going back to bed. Bed is winning at the moment.

Join us! We've even got our own music video.

It’s only a month until the season premier of Hannibal (I am ridiculously excited!!!! I need people to talk to about it.) and NBC has been considerate enough to make this blog a music video (TW: The video is very much Hannibal which while brilliant and gorgeous is also truly horrific at times).

So if you’re looking for someplace to talk about the best show on television (and not...
