Friday Randomness

Obsession (Not by Calvin Klein):
I am in full on obsession mode about an iPhone 8. The simple solution is to quit obsessing and go get one. That is where my brain kicks in with worrying about the extra cost per month, etc. You would think these decisions would be easier the older you get. But for me, it seems like these decisions just keep getting harder and harder.

Speaking of Getting Older:
It’s two weeks until my birthday wherein this Old Fart becomes even older and fart-ier. The fun this year is that I will get the rare Friday the 13th birthday. I am slowly pushing towards 50 which is a weird fact to me. Back in my 20’s, I never thought I would make it past 40. Go figure.

Meanwhile:
It seems like I have most of my extra design work is caught up. Yay! I have been working pretty much every day for the last few weeks on freelance stuff. The extra money is nice, but sometimes working 10-12 hour days (the regular eight plus freelance hours) can be a total drag. Tonight it is time to kick back with a beer and relax!

Weekend Plans:
The big excitement is going to be building some more DVD/Blu-ray shelves tomorrow (the addiction is real, people) with the help of the Retired Pilot. Then there will be pizza and binging some more Luke Cage. I am way behind on Netflix’s Marvel content.  Maybe there will be a hike on Sunday if PT and I can get our schedules worked out. Then on Sunday night I will be seeing Crystal Castles over at The Orange Peel. Hopefully it will be a good show.

And for No Reason:
Here’s a picture of Tab Hunter being all hot and Tab Hunter-y. Enjoy!

Twin Peaks: The Return

Twin Peaks: The ReturnIt’s been fun watching the internet meltdown this week over Twin Peaks: The Return. A lot of people seemed to be expecting a nostalgic return to the Pacific Northwest and not the full on David Lynch madhouse mind fuck that is Parts 1-3 (Part 4 settles down somewhat). I was expecting this … it is Lynch after all! I am firmly on board to see where the next 14 parts take us. Kudos to Showtime for being willing to let Lynch (and Mark Frost) do their own freaky thing.

Such Excitement!

“What’s been happening?” you may ask. It was a pretty lazy weekend!

FRIDAY NIGHT:
Hung out with Shortlegs and gossiped a little and talked about more adult things (jobs, home ownership, home buying). I think I miss my 20’s when it was not so “adult” more about where and when I was going to get drunk again.

SATURDAY:
PT and I walked around the lake instead of hiking as the weather was pretty gross. I dropped into Best Buy and picked up the Bob’s Burger’s Music Album on CD. I would love to have the deluxe vinyl edition but I can’t really justify spending that much money. Then I napped all afternoon and ordered cheap and sleazy Pizza Hunt for dinner. Viva la Cheap and Sleazy!

SUNDAY:
Did a little bit of work during the day and also binge watched the first season of Sense8. The show is pretty good and has a cast that is waaaaay too hot. Pictured below is that handsome German actor, Max Riemelt (shirtless, of course). He is in the show. Hubba!

And now another work week is underway …

Such Excitement!

Camille’s “Snow White”


It’s the year of Snow White, apparently  (what with two “re-imagined” major motion pictures opening). Thankfully, I can ignore those movies and put all my excitement into the new book which is illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia. She recently had a book signing and opening of “Snow White: The Complete Works on Paper” at the Michael Kohn Gallery. Her work for “Snow White” is absolutely stunning.

In conjunction with all this, Garcia has also released a series of four “Snow White” prints. If you really loved me, you would buy me “The Witch’s Laboratory.” C’mon … you know you want to!!!
