What I’ve Been Watching – March 2019 Edition

I’ve watched my share of series and movies since the holidays and
Unbreakable, Split, & Glass. Helps when I make a trip out west and watch 2 movies each way.

Punisher season 2

My favorite of the Marvel series on Netflix. Too bad they are all cancelled.

Bird Box

After everyone was talking so much about this Netflix movie I was really expecting something. It was good but nothing special.

Captain Marvel

Great movie. Can we get more female super heroes?

The Umbrella Academy

Really fun comic book series on Netflix. I binged it in 4-5 days.

Bumblebee

People like to give the Transformers movies a hard time, but I’ve always enjoyed them. This one was no exception.

Green Book

Great story. Going in, I didn’t realize it was based on the true story. People really can change.

The Catcher was a Spy

Pretty sure I hadn’t heard of this movie before I saw it in the list on the flight. Another interesting story based on real life.

In Search of Greatness

A documentary I hadn’t heard of either. I really liked how they compared growing up to the kids of today, based on the careers and interviews with Pelé, Jerry Rice, and Wayne Gretzky. Parents push children in sports so much more now and don’t let them just go out and play. Studies show that the kids with less structured practice time grow up to have more creativity, intuition, and feel for the games, making them better.

Different Tastes

I tried a few different things last week.

These Skittles were weird. I wouldn’t buy them again.

I was very skeptical of Coke Zero, but it was actually decent. Certainly a lot better than Diet Coke, which is fucking gross. This is a suitable replacement for a Coke. I also tried a Cherry Coke Zero but there wasn’t much cherry flavor to it.

I Would Rather #2

Would you rather live your entire life in a virtual reality where all your wishes are granted or in the real world?
I guess it depends if I’d know I was in virtual reality or not. How do we know we aren’t living in the Matrix right now? If I’d know where I was, I would choose the real world.

Would you rather be alone for the rest of your life or always be surrounded by annoying people?

Alone. Duh!

Would you rather never use social media sites / apps again or never watch another movie or TV show?

Never use social media sites/apps again. We grew up fine without them.

Would you rather have an easy job working for someone else or work for yourself but work incredibly hard?

I’d take an easy job working for someone else. I don’t have any desire to deal with the extra shit and pressures of working for myself.

Would you rather be the first person to explore a planet or be the inventor of a drug that cures a deadly disease?

The inventor of a drug that cures a deadly disease. Exploring a new planet could be deadly and/or completely useless.

Would you rather have a horrible short term memory or a horrible long term memory?

A horrible short term memory because eventually I’d remember with the long term memory.

Would you rather be completely invisible for one day or be able to fly for one day?

Fly! Being invisible would be creepy.

Would you rather be locked in a room that is constantly dark for a week or a room that is constantly bright for a week?

Constantly dark. It would be much easier to sleep.

San Diego’s Balboa Park has an old fitness circuit. Look at that 1975 copyright! Of course I dropped and knocked out a set of 20.
