It was a wonderful, nostalgic reminder of an amazing trip when the download code for the film finally appeared in my email last Friday.

Drew Barrymore is headlining this new Netflix horror-comedy series called “Santa Clarita Diet” and while I wouldn’t normally plug a tv show on this blog, I figure she was probably filming this a few weeks or months before the NYC marathon time frame and that’s just cool from an I’m-not-going-to-namedrop-too-much-more-about-actresses-i-met-in-central-park-really-honestly perspective. The show caught my eye in the sense that Netflix pushed it into my face enough times that I watched the pre-release trailer, and so because I’ve recently gained a newfound respect for my now-fav actress I gave the show an above average shot… and it’s actually pretty funny. I mean, it’s crude and there is excessive gore, but it’s a weird comedy suburban family take on a light zombie crossover thing. I don’t even know how to describe it. But I did watch three episodes back-to-back. Karin just hid her eyes from the blood spatter.

I think the honour of most overplayed song this year is Wham! "Last Christmas" ... I gave you my heart but the very next day, you gave it away... uh, keep it.

The Creepiest Reindeer?

December 15 You know Dasher and Dancer and… well… all the rest… and really just that classic holiday claymation standard tv show, the one called Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. You’ve heard of it? Yes? It’s the disconnected, nonsense tale of a elf and his obsession with orthodontics, who flees from his indentured servitude at the north pole and falls into league with a runaway deer, a juvenile mutant of a subspecies of the caribou family. It is the timeless tale of how society only really, truly accepts weirdos when they become useful to the normals. That television classic of the season… Claire thinks it’s disturbing. She refused to watch it tonight. “Dad! That show is so creepy!” Uh. Kids these days.

Like so many of us I get pulled into that click bait garbage in my new feeds and waste my time watching or reading fake or trivial stories online.

Very likely something with the words "Christmas" in the title.

If only because it has a haunting violin part, I've been listening to Something Wild by Lindsey Stirling quite too much.

It was about then when the drummer, arms in the air, began nudging the crowd into action as he started a rhythmic clap.

I guess it might be time to once again reconsider cutting.
