New Show

Well, for me anyway. I’ve been getting into “True Detective” since I have HBO Now through Apple TV. It’s blowing me away. The acting is phenomenal and the story outstanding. Yes, I know, I’m late to the party. I don’t care. Despite its success and all the chatter about it on the web, I’ve managed to avoid spoilers.

Buying my Apple TV box has given me one pleasant surprise after another. I haven’t even begun to mine all the free stuff available. On top of that, I can watch past episodes of network series that I’ve missed, especially “Castle.” Granted, I have to pay a small fee, usually around $3.00 or $4.00 per episode, but it’s fine by me.

I’m also considering purchasing the entire series of “The Avatar – The Last Airbender.” Sure, it’s a kid’s cartoon from Nickelodeon, but it’s also a great story, with some pretty intelligent writing in between the children oriented humor. Also, at the end of the series, it had excellent music as well.

However, for now, I’m going to just focus on “True Detective” and worry about spending money later.

So, It Will Soon Be Time

Time, that is, to do laundry. I’m about to hop into the shower and then pack everything into Tina’s van so I can run up to the local laundry mat. There’s one right here in Willow River, but the machines are old and small, and the dryers are unreliable.

So, anyway, what’s happening in your part of Sunday morning?

Too Funny!

It’s been a while since I’ve actually supplied a link here at the ol’ castle, but this is seriously funny.

(Bark Bark Woof Woof):
Pollster: Do you favor such a proposal, yes or no?
Me:  Yes.
Pollster: Is that a strong “yes” or a somewhat “yes”?
Me:  It’s a binary question: it’s either “yes” or “no;” there’s no gradations to that kind of question.
Pollster (after a pause):  I understand, but is your answer a strong “yes” or a somewhat “yes”?
Me: Yes.

Now, go read the rest……..
