Roseanne revival


See the source image

The original series ran from 1988 – 1997. It is one of the shows I am so glad they brought back  (yes I know I should be strung up and tortured for saying that, but sometimes, I do wish for curiosity sake or because I really miss ‘family)’. Now I’ve been watching the old episodes on one of the tv stations when I catch it on and aside from the 90s fashion, they are still funny. Ones I have seen umpteen times I still laughed at.

The coming attractions for the reboot sounded like Connor clan, just older. Yes the original cast is back even double Becky! Which there is a joke in the pilot episode of the new 2018 reboot. However, in the pilot of the reboot I did miss Johnny Galecki and Mark. In the new series, Darlene is I forget if its divorced or separated from David but he will be back for an episode however being as the actor Glenn Quinn that played Mark died in 2002, Mark is dead on the show. I didn’t hear how Mark supposedly died yet though.

Thor Ragnarok


3D   PG-13  Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchette, Mark Ruffalo, Karl Urban Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum,Taika Waititi Idris Elba

Valkyrie.. first of all… Valkyries have wings (where the Christians got angels from)  Director Taika Waititi wantschris hemsworth thor movie to make it clear that racial diversity in his cast was not the primary goal.  “I’m not obsessed with the idea that you cast someone just to tick a box. You should cast people because they are talented”. (and with that I give my respect! as I have always felt the same.)  “with Valkyrie, I wanted to make sure we weren’t making a female character that was boring and pretty. What I wanted was someone who was going to play the opposite and be even more the ‘guy’ character than the guys. Ultimately I thought Tessa was the best person we found. *Honestly… aside from her work on Vikings…. Katheryn Winnick would have been better, (She’s Blond, pretty but definitely not boring, she has her own martial arts school(s) and her character on Vikings is a kick-ass shield-maiden. (which all that martial arts helped her get the role)  In my belief, when shield-maidens die, they become Valkyries. One day in researching the Valkyries of the Norse, I found there is one with the name Lagertha!

So what were the other Avengers up to during Ragnarok?

Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout


Dog Gone, Back Soon (Cyrus Mills, #2)    Fiction, Animals, Humor, Romance

Wait how did a fish write a book?!?!!

Mom has one of those Reader’s Digest large print  book subscriptions. She had a few laughs at this and told me a couple of them. At the start (just a chapter or so in) a big Mastiff comes in, the kid Stu made brownies tells the vet its that chocolate toxicity when in fact it was pot brownies! The dog ate the plate of them!

Being as the book large print books mom gets are 2 in one and therefore condensed, when I got to the end of the book I was just like that’s all? That’s the end? I enjoyed reading the book but wasn’t happy with the ending as it felt like it was someone brushing lint off their shoulder.

I do think it would be cool as a movie tho (maybe a tv movie would end up on Hallmark or some girly station that would be awfully written and acted.

I’d say get the real book, as this just felt like it was missing something but I’m guessing it was just the filler.

How to get a date with a vampire


Paranormal Fiction humor

 

This came out when I was either in my last year of Junior High or my first year of high school. I would stare at it every time I went into Walden-books, hoping it would be on sale and I could afford it (on my allowance…do kids still get those?)

You can tell just by what the female cover model is wearing that it’s from late 80s or early 90s, so now I have officially just put a date on myself.

So one day in my travels I came across a copy in the Goodwill store. You would think I found a buried treasure! I held onto the book like someone was gonna steal it from and and I’d have to fight for it!

 

“Vampires are everywhere, if you know where to look, and they are yours for the taking, if you know what to do”

 

The books tells you How to spot a vampire, Breaking the ice as well as their type and I don’t mean blood type, How to meet the family and so on. Oh yeah and they seem to have this natural affinity for the damaged and fragile.

The writing had a nice flow except when the author had to put some broken French or Italian in there while mentioning some wine or something.. I enjoyed the book, but I think I would have more so when I was younger.

as I sort of mentioned the time it came out (the book says ©1990) it is a bit dated and I wish an update could be done with the way the dating scene is now. I read a couple of the GoodReads comments and no one seemed to get the humor, unless it was all those parts with the broken language. I see the humor part being it is a guide to dating  vampires. I know they were probably actually looking for jokes within the writing which I guess, like me, you just need to be a ‘Vampire girl’ to get the humor!  (as my friends sit stone faced in movie theaters during a vampire movie like Blade… and I’m the one laughing at the jokes and they have no clue why its funny!

(no I’m not saying I stalk the night in search of blood, I have just always gotten ‘Vampire humor’ you know like there’s English humor or ironic humor and morbid humor…yep! I’m the one that laughs at the morbid, ironic Vampire humor! )

I had no expectations of the book which was good, I mean how good can this sort be, especially getting it decades after it was written? I will be saving it for another read in the future and putting it with my vampire book collection!(call me a Vampirologist!?!?)

I also would have appreciated her making up ‘Vampire zodiac signs’ as she phrased that the zodiac signs were different instead of just libra its ‘the libra vampire) what she wrote for those…. (well I only read my scorpio one) sounds exactly like the real scorpio traits! Why not make something up (and be actually original) and make up some up like make up constellations or just use ones that aren’t as popular :::checks out my planisphere) like Phoenix and Draco … woujld be PERFECT for  vampire a  zodiac signs!) mmm maybe that’s an idea for something in my Vampire Bible  (you can find it on ZodiacImmortal.wordpress.com  There’s a post but the PAGE in the menu is the one you really want!)
