Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/12/22


3 Up

1. New Gun Laws - This is huge. There are going to be some who take the negative approach and say that this isn't "enough", but considering our past, our current culture, and the politics (and lobbying), this is a tremendous first step towards simple sanity in gun control, reform, and safety within our country. 

Also, much props to some of the Republicans who worked across the aisle to get this done. We need more of this, and less stalling to make the other side look terrible. 

2. Matthew McConaughey - For what it's worth, McConaughey delivered a speech that hit most of America in the heart in just thirty seconds. The story of Maite Rodriguez's green converses hits home.

3. COVID Vaccines for Under 5 - Have we become completely jaded by COVID news? Regardless, I'm still in awe of what science has provided. Think about it, just months ago schools were still shutting down. Now we have vaccines set for release for children under five years of age. 

3 Down

1. Gas Prices - For the first time, gas is now over $5! In other countries around the world, gas prices are at absurd levels. On top of that, food prices, among other goods, have soared. What a time in history. The 2020's have surely been interesting. 

2. Patriot Front Arrested - White Nationalism continues to be the biggest threat to this country. What is the point of rioting at a Pride festival? How are these individuals bothering you, or taking away from your liberties? This story is still unfolding, but it is so infuriating.

2. Supreme Court Justice Threats - What are we doing as a society? An assassination attempt on a supreme court justice? Our society is in a bad way.   

2 Interesting

1. January 6th Hearings - Thursday night already gave us evidence and testimonies we have yet to encounter from that awful day. We're also set for more this coming week...stay tuned, everyone. It's VERY important that we get to the bottom of it. 

Also, Fox News not carrying the hearings says everything about their integrity, or even, their fear of their audience learning more about what is truth. 

2. Justin Beiber - Kudos to Beebs for announcing to the world his diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. The condition has left the entire left side of his face paralyzed. It's a bold move, but I'm sure helpful to many who deal with various health struggles.

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

Bound For Glory 2020 Review - If A Tree Falls And No One Hears It...

Television in 2020 has been weird. Check that. It's super weird.  In a year marred by pandemics, death, catastrophe, and overwhelming heartbreak, the viewing habits of everything in entertainment has changed - wrestling included. Ratings are down. No one respects appointment television - and heck, there is even less need for the idea of watching content through said television. Where am I going with this on a Wrestling pay-per-view review? Come on, get to the point, bro!  I haven't been shy in communicating my severe disappointment in professional wrestling (namely WWE) during this pandemic ( Pro Wrestling in COVID Times ). When many entertainment options were off the table, most notably that of sports, pro wrestling had an extreme opportunity to give fans something different, and even capture casual fans.  Unfortunately, they didn't. And a large part of my growing disinterest with pro wrestling has been because of the WWE, and to a much lesser extent, AEW. 

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)

What is it about?  A group of college baseball players navigate their way through college, taking advantage of their personal freedoms and learning to navigate their sudden unsupervised life in the 1980's.  Who is in it? Blake Jenner - Jake Tyler Hoechin - McReynolds Ryan Guzman - Roper Glenn Powell - Finnegan

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/10/20

3 UP 1. COVID Vaccine Researchers - I know...there is a lot of information (and hope, and speculation, and non-truths) being thrown around regarding vaccinations and remedies for COVID-19. However, with a few hopeful going to testing this week, I did find myself thinking about the work researchers, lab technicians, and so many more are engaging in around the world to literally, save the world. Thank you. 2. KBO Baseball - Baseball is baseball. And watching the Korean league has been really fun. Especially the bat flips - the bat flips!!! Also, is it just me, or wouldn't it make sense for ESPN to rebroadcast the LIVE games at 7PM daily. I'm just saying...better than reruns of the World Series of Poker. Don't come at me, poker enthusiasts. 3. Little Richard/Andre Harrell - The world continues to cry...and we lost two good ones that were not just great at what they do, but huge influencers in their art form. Regardless, I am placing them in the "Up" for the
