Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/24/19


3 Up

1. Colorblind Kid Gets Glasses - Twitter can often be a cruel, dark, and some times, annoying place. But if you can sift through all of the garbage, there are a few things its awesome for, and it's the positive content that often gets suppressed. Seeing this 12-year old boy try on glasses that gives him the ability to see color for the first time in his life is amazing. By the way, much love to that Principal who shared his disability - and his glasses, as well as a hug - with this kid. Great stuff.

2. Kristen Bell - I really enjoy when celebrities use their platform for the greater good. Especially when it is the kind of good that is so simple. Kristen Bell, one of the most followed celebrities on Instagram, uses her account to highlight and feature a teacher in order to get them the supplies they need. It's an awesome gesture, and one that is needed to help our educators nationwide, who we all know, are greatly underfunded.

3. Jeopardy Showdown - I loved Jeopardy growing up. I don't catch it as much as I used to, but the idea of a super challenge pitting the best contestants of all-time against each other in a series championing the first to 3 victories. This is the kind of stuff sports wishes it can host beyond fun debates. Can't wait to see this.

3 Down

1. Walmart Mass Shooting - Just more shootings, I guess...

2. ISIS Rebuild - The turmoil in Syria has now allowed a footing for ISIS to once again grab a footing to do its evil bidding around the world once again. SMH.

3. Impeachment Updates - I have no confidence in these impeachment hearings. So much so, that I don't even bother with the news updates that come from them. But it also dawned on me how biased and how filled with "influence" news reports are that come from all of these "updates". The world of journalism really is facing a serious issue as we move forward.

1 Eye Roll

1. Fox News Trademark of OK Boomer - I won't lie, I've used "OK Boomer" many times. Yes, whenever that Boomer generation individual attempts to tell you how "things ought to be". Regardless, the idea that Fox News now owns the trademark and plans to use it as a game show is the kind of thing only Fox News would do. I can only imagine the kind of dopey content that will come from this show.

Dome Pondering Movie Review: The Incredibles 2 (2018)

What is it about? The Parr family returns to take on a new mission which involves a change in family roles as well as a new villain. Who is in it? Craig T. Nelson - Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible Holly Hunter - Helen Parr/Elastagirl Sarah Powell - Violet Parr Favorite Scene: After trying to contain Jack-Jack, his constant battle with a backyard rodent opens up the family to the multitude of powers that he possesses, or even, can develop. Favorite Quote: "If you wanna get out of the hole, first you gotta put down the shovel." Review: Like many, I LOVED the original Incredibles film. And yes, I too was annoyed whenever a sequel wasn't announced. After all, there were many franchises that debuted, got a sequel, and even moved straight to release on their third installment before our lovable heroic family got their turn! But I digress... Nonetheless, it finally arrived. And if I'm being honest, The Incredibles 2 was good. It just wasn't what I wa

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/2/23

3 Up 1. Women's College Basketball - From the epic semi-final that was Iowa vs. South Carolina that crushed it in the ratings to today's awesome drama that was Iowa vs. LSU, women's basketball earned some much-deserved respect in the mainstream sports media. Shout out to all in today's game - loved it.  1a. Confident Women - I'm not jumping on a hot take regarding Caitlin Clark and Angela Reese. Both are super confident women who talked trash and balled. Give the women the space to do it, take it, and express it - like we do the men. Much respect to Clark and to Reese as well.  2. Wrestlemania - An amazing two nights for the WWE. Just epic storytelling and overall solidifies the greatest live event in entertainment. No one does it like the WWE.  3. Pandemic Over (?) - So, I'm not sure if anyone has officially, officially ended the pandemic - if they did, I definitely missed it. However, with the Senate voting to overturn the COVID-19 national emergency order, is

Impact No Surrender 2023 Review: "Interested in where the Product is Going"

I've fallen behind on my Impact Wrestling viewing, but honestly, that's okay. For viewership and enjoyment, yes. Not so well for posting a review for readership long after it's noteworthy or relevant. But whatevs, that's just where I am in life. Wrestling is much more fun removed from the restraints and influence of the criticism and impact (no pun intended) of the current time. That's just me. You can probably thank social media. Moving on, No Surrender 2023 continues Impact's progress into the new year. The product is still solid and consistent with a nice blend of characters and wrestlers moving in and out of the main event scene, along with a fresh batch of a resurgence of characters and occurrences. Nothing says that more than Rich Swann vs. Josh Alexander.  No Surrender was a solid event, but it does leave me extremely interested in where the product is going, or should I say planning, for 2023. I don't want to say that Alexander's title reign has
