Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/16/23

3 Up

1. Gilgo Beach Serial Killer Captured - The break in this case feels like something out of a Law and Order episode. Nonetheless, this gets the top spot for the sheer perspective of some break and information (maybe closure?) for the families of the loved ones who perished without answers. 

2. Wimbledon Winners - Alcaraz did the thing and went through Novak Djokovic to win his first major at 20 years old. Marketa Vondrousova became the Major's first unseeded champion. Both, VERY impressive. 

3. Sabrina Ionescu - 37 Points! The greatest three-point shooting display for a three-point competition round in either the WNBA or NBA. I've been a big fan of Ionescu, and super happy the WNBA gets some love this week via her accomplishment. 

3 Down

1. Extreme Weather - Floods and Heat everywhere. It seems like we're all suffering from one of the two, and some, both. Some crazy stuff going on. 

2. Hollywood Entertainment - SAG-AFTRA now joins the Writers Guild on the picket line against Studios, the industry, the machine - all of it. If the economy hasn't felt like it's cooling off, the domino effect of Hollywood going dark for the foreseeable future has 18-24 month effects. 

3. Bank of America - Like, can banks just do this? I mean, they did and got caught. But, like, creating fake accounts? Illegal fees? WHAT?!

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
