Off with the ole lady to get tacos and see Zombieland Double Tap.
Hope it’s as good as the first one.
This past weekend, we saw Joker. Thought it was amazing. Definitely not a superhero movie and doesn’t really meet the right times to make Joker under 70 by the time Batman comes around but still a great story and excellent performance from Mr Phoenix.
We watched El Camino last night, loved it.
If anyone was wondering what happened to Jesse after Breaking Bad ends, it clears it up, starting immediately after he’s liberated. It’d be a bit more convincing if the Matt Damon looking guy didn’t gain a bunch of weight in between BB and this movie, but a great movie anyways.
So I've obviously been pretty much laid up for awhile, and it seems every winter i get sick of said winter so i start watching documentaries about sailing which drives my wife completely crazy. But i love it, and the kids occasionally like to stop playing long enough to snuggle for a few minutes and watch them with me, so yeah. Watched a really cool one today about a family that basically started cruising in the 60s and didn't stop. They lost their first boat on a reef, salvaged as much equipment as they could until they were found, then built another boat in ferrocement (using measurements from the first one) and took off again. Ended up doing 3 circumnavigations, including a wrong way around Antarctica at very high latitudes. They did over 200k miles in their lives, which is almost unheard of (especially back then) and super hardcore. It's called following seas and is on Amazon prime for free if you have that. Really cool stories, and an incredible way to live.
Also watched this one, much more modern day but same principle. Has footage of them motoring through through a force 12 storm, which is badass. Insane to think of a boat half that size doing that and more tho, in the 1960s. Still a cool movie tho.
I can’t watch anything on the tube unless I’m home by myself. Fiction is a waste of time for me and that’s all she wants to watch. If it isn’t real what’s the point. Documentaries interest me but if I miss one word it’s like I missed the whole thing and if somebody is here you can bet you’re gonna miss more than one word. I gave up on tv long ago.
09, those sailing flics look cool, I'll have to check em out.
Speaking of sailing media, 2 spring to my mind, you might like them.
The book Endurance, about Shakleton's try to reach the south pole by sail, I read it awhile back and it was truly nasty. I just googled it, 5 stars with 5400+ reviews, I guess a lot of folks loved it too.
And btw, another survival at sea story, a recent one '436 Days', the amount of time a mexican fisherman was lost at sea for. I really dug it even though to live thru it would be mostly hell on earth.
