  1. Ed you might also like Rick Beato on YouTube. He has a series "What makes this song great" where he deconstructs songs based on music theory. Mostly on classic rock songs. Carlos.
  2. After careful listening under near perfect listening conditions, I've concluded that "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak is one damn near perfect, beautiful song. Might be by design, might not be, but the way he swallows the "don't" at times in the phrase "I don't want to fall in love" is a just wonderous! And the whispered "this world is only going to break your heart", and the final double entendre of the double-negative "Nobody loves no one" are just miracles of lyricism. This is among the most perfect songs, by a genius songwriter. Carlos.
  3. Toy Story 4- This is a fantastic, coming of age movie for Woody. Most of the other toys are relegated to supporting roles, while newer toys are introduced to help on his quest. Forky is hilarious, and Duke Kaboom brings the stunt action. The climax is not the edge-of-your-seat thrill ride as in the previous 3, but still fun and funny. It's touching and heart warming, and I teared up a little more than once. I give it 4 out of 5 convivial high fives. Carlos. p.s. Make sure you stay all the way through the credits, and I mean all the way through.
  4. Us - The best part about this movie was its trailer. It was intriguing, enticing, and filled you with angst and dread. The movie itself falls apart, and doesn't make a lick of sense. I'm willing to forgive a lot in the name of a fun, scary ride, but the dumbness of the characters and the plot were just too bad for me to have anything good to say. I give it 2 out of 5 faulty flares. Carlos.
  5. My daughter got excellent grades this year, so I told her to pick her vacation spot. Knowing Galaxy's Edge isn't open at Disney World yet, she picked Ohio, for the excellent coasters at King's Island and Cedar Point. If you're in to thrill rides, you simply can't beat these two parks. There are so many world-class coasters. At Cedar Point, Steel Vengeance opened in 2018. It is a hybrid coaster - a steel track built on a traditional wooden coaster frame. Guys, this is the real deal. I've ridden coasters all over the US, and this is the absolute best by miles. I can't even believe it is allowed to exist! There are snap rolls on this thing that seem like they should be at the edge of a normal human's tolerance. Plus, there are NO shoulder harnesses -- a lap bar is all you get and there's no handles or anything really to hang on to. It has the most "air time" - the feeling of coming-out-of-your-seat weightlessness - than any other coaster. The twists and turns were just mind scrambling. I've never felt so discombobulated after a ride. It is THE benchmarks by which all coasters will be judged from now on. Check out this POV ride. Anyway, if you like scary, thrilling coasters, you cannot go wrong with a trip to these two parks. They are about a 4 hour drive away from each other. Carlos.
  6. Getting familiar with my new girlfriend. Carlos.
  7. Striking Vipers was meh. Smithereen at least had a message. Ashley Too was probably the most garbage episode of Black Mirror to date. None of this season's episodes were worthy of the outstanding mindblowers from previous seasons. Carlos.
  8. Don't forget Handmaid's Tale on Hulu, Sneaky Pete s3 on Amazon, and please watch Catch-22, on Hulu!! Carlos.
  9. Season 3 was a hoot too! Plenty of LOL moments. Now I'm ready to start watching the OA S2. Carlos.
  10. I like coop, but I disagree about switching. It was just as fun for us. As far as I can tell, my boys invented the term "Die, give it" to describe how we passed the controller through everything from Donkey Kong to Halo. Great memories were made. Carlos.
  11. Who gets to say "Come with me if you want to live" this time? Carlos.
  12. This show is a gem! While it's impossible to distill a large, classic novel down to only 6 episodes, they made a superb adaptation here. It's got most every crucial element of the novel, retaining the witty banter, the brutal horror, and necessary absurdity of war, and how Yossarian's self-preservation instinct leads to more pain for all. The casting was critical, and they nailed it. Stand out portrayals are Milo Minderbinder, Cathcart, and Yossarian, but they are ALL great. I give it 5 out of 5 Major Major Major Major Majors. Carlos.
  13. Excuse me sir, I ordered Spoiler FREE, not Spoiled-for-Free. Carlos.
  14. Well, it sure wasn't Miyagi, the alcoholic, child-labor exploiting, lying, thieving, lazy, juvenile assaulter. And that's just in the first movie! Carlos.
