Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/11/23

3 Up

1. Four Kids Found Alive - Airplane crash aside, the mere story of these four children surviving for 40 days AFTER a plane crash and then being found is nothing short of a miracle. Give those kids so much credit for surviving in the rainforest off of flour and other natural instincts. 

2. Brooklyn Neighborhood Policed Itself - I'm not saying this is the way to go. However, the project that lasted several days is very much worth the read. The results are worth looking into, as many are already stating that it can reshape policing in various urban centers across the country. 

3. Messi to MLS - One of the biggest stars in sports in the world is on his way to MLS via Inter Miami. The club now has THE MOST followers of all sports teams on Instagram at 8M. Messi's star power is coming stateside. 

3 Down

1. Trump Indictment - I'm so sick of talking about Trump. I really am. But, this dude continues to force himself into the news. Now, he's in big trouble with the Federal Government on 37 counts - mainly leaking all of the security. How do some continue to defend this dude? 

2. Flooding in Haiti - Haiti just took a pounding this week with dangerous floods and then earthquakes to immediately follow. Thousands of homes are flooded and 40+ are dead. Keep Haiti in your thoughts. 

3. Canadian Wildfires - Ah yes, nothing like walking a Manhattan that glowed ORANGE and made your lungs burn. What is going on with Earth? Seriously.

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

AEW All IN: London (2023) Review: "This large of a crowd for an event that wasn't the WWE!"

I'm obviously registering these thoughts incredibly late, but such is the current state of pro wrestling right now - there is just so much going on, and so much to enjoy. It's a great time to be a fan, regardless of where your tribalism fandom falls - if you carry such allegiances.  I'm sure no matter what product you find entertaining, you circled AEW's All In event from Wembley Stadium as a must-watch. I don't care about someone else's "take" on the attendance total - I couldn't care less if it was the record for a pro wrestling event or not - what AEW was able to accomplish is absolutely amazing! Four years in, and the company produced an event on the levels of Wrestlemania in terms of attendance and business - that's damn impressive! Tony Khan and the entire company deserve loads of credit for taking that leap because it very much could have failed. They took a chance, and absolutely delivered (and so much more), and proved there is a subs

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/10/23

3 Up 1. Coco Gauf & Novak Djokovic - The US Open wrapped up this weekend and tennis crowned some deserving champions. Djokovic continues to add to a remarkable career with his 24th (!!) grand slam title win. And of course, Coco Gauff won over America with her win. It's impressive to see the effect that the Williams sisters have had on tennis - wow. Looking forward to seeing the star Gauff will become.  2. Olivia Rodrigo - Her first album was fire. Even this late-thirties male enjoyed it. The sophomore album is always the toughest and Rodrigo apparently (haven't listened to it myself, yet) dropped an absolute banger in "Guts". So much so, that it broke records for debut stream with over 60 million streams!  3. Deion Sanders - There's way to much dialogue around Sanders that isn't needed. Here is what it boils down to for me - Sanders took over a program that was 1-11. He brought in 80+ players. His team is currently 2-0, including victories over a ranked op
