Road to Perdition

When you think of Tom Hanks, I don’t think Road to Perdition readily comes to mind because he’s been so likable for several decades. Therefore him playing a regional gangster’s muscle was a stretch with audiences. I really wanted to see … Continue reading

A whole new generation of kids was going to be introduced to Blue Falcon and Dynomutt next month via an upcoming Scooby Doo movie but the Pandemic killed its theatrical release; it will be out digitally though. For me, I … Continue reading

New fridge at Chez Maggi

I hope the 1990 version of me never finds about how 2020 version of me was stoked over this new fridge. Admittedly, I did some shopping online to compare and came upon this one because I love the door on … Continue reading

Moronavirus outbreak happened again this weekend

Once again, con artist and bullshitter Alex Jones got his Ammosexuals and dupes riled up to make their moronic demands at the Capitol. It’s a downside of Austin, right along with all the dickweeds wearing Ron Paul shirts. I’ve concluded … Continue reading
