So I made a resolution in 2018 to start writing again. Back in college it was a great way for me to unwind and explain my thoughts. I never had a theme and if I did I’d probably be doing this full time. In any case, random ideas float along in my head every now and then. As a sports junkie, I’m constantly thinking about how good my teams are. Spoiler: it’s up and down. Of course most things are settled in a playoff. One of the best things about competitions is that you look forward to potential matchup going forward in an effort to crown a champion.
Back to my random thought, we’re approaching the end of the greatest month of the year, February. All of the great ones seem to be born here: Bob Marley. Me. Michael Jordan. It’s an ongoing list. It’s also Black History Month where we all can acknowledge that black is beautiful, smart and talented. With the release of Black Panther, the cast is hypnotic as in everyone is in awe of the great job done by the predominantly black cast. So with March Madness looming, I thought of an idea. A new debate for the cookout: who is the best actor we got? And as my mind developed some heated debates, I had to give myself some ground rules. Continue Reading
I watched Countdown, starring WWE’s Dolph Ziggler and Kane. The real star is none of these guys. Continue Reading

I heard through the grapevine about this. I had to watch. Now you can read more for your primer: Continue Reading

I’m pretty sure there’s no spoilers here with Jon Bernthal playing Frank Castle, aka the Punisher. (No further plot spoilers) If you ever watched the Walking Dead back in the beginning, Bernthal took all the rage of Shane had with the people in his dystopia future and just peed on Lundgren, Jane and Stevenson combined. Who knew he’d be the perfect man for the job? MVP of the season, hence why we see him instead of Charlie Cox here. A couple of other characters get introduced pretty decently to pay the ground work of this season plus continued good jobs by Foggy and Karen, aka Fulton Reed and Jessica Hamby (don’t ever ask me about True Blood).
I’d go into more details, but that would spoil things. So, on a scale of Toxic Avenger to Meteor Man, season 2 of Daredevil gets a 7 out of 10.

I watched Fuller House. I watched the 1st episode and read afterwards that this episode was over the top cheesy and corny because this was what the creator wanted to be the real Full House Series Finale. I forgive it then. The rest of the show was ok… at best. There’s no other non-sexist explanation: Stephanie Tanner saves the show. They made her the Uncle Jesse of the trio and yep, well done. With the Netflix (lack of) restrictions, they push the envelope on the inside jokes and Sexual innuendo. DJ is such a dry actress, Kimmy is still batshit insane, and the kids are hit and miss. They’re getting a 2nd season because Netflix is king as long as people still “chill” with it. if you’re a fan and make it past the reunion of the Rippers, then why not.
My originalscale was gonna range from a Oh, Mylanta to a You Got It, Dude but that’s one school. Let’s keep it current. On a scale of cheap Donald Trump jokes to “Stephanie is still dancing in my dreams,” this gets a 4.5 out if 10.
