For All Mankind! Brew a strong tea: yo!
The First Yo of The Day.
Another Monday has risen up like a Phoenix.
“I no longer feared the darkness once I knew the Phoenix in me would rise from the ashes.”
~ William C. Hannan
Have an excellent week…ya filthy mutants!
And Thus Concludes The NBA’s Diamond Regular Season…
As for today’s cover image: The NBA Regular Season Is Over. Here are the final Eastern Conference Standings.
It Doesn’t Matter What Ya Wanted To Do; You’re Defined By What Ya Did.
Being a loser is a choice…make better ones especially now that the real season begins on April 16.
Show up or get shown out. #NBAPlayoffs #BallorFall
Brie Larson Cast In Fast and Furious 10
Ew. Brie Larson is all kinds of dull. Though she does those cheezy car commercials I see during NBA games; so I guess that qualifies her to be cast in Fast and Furious?
Fine. Whatever. Finish this…at least The Rock is not coming back; that’s good!
Golf/NBA: The Return of Tiger Woods
On March 29, 1995 Michael Jordan fresh from baseball…scored 55 against the Knicks. What Spike Lee calls the Double Nickel game. It was the best hope he was all the way back. It was an illusion.
It was so beautiful and yet…by the NBA Playoffs it was so painful to see Jordan get the ball stripped during the Magic series. He looked so frail and human; an ordinary basketball player. (Thankfully he came back and murdered everyone!!)
The world is better when Tiger Woods plays. Not as much hope as the Double Nickel game but encouraging signs he’s back. #BallorFall
I didn’t play my best out there, but just to have the support and appreciation from all the fans, I don’t think words can describe that. Congratulations to Scottie Scheffler on an outstanding win. It’s been a special run. pic.twitter.com/8BAMJKlGFY

A Spirit Halloween Movie Is A Horror-Able Idea
“When a new Spirit Halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store Halloween night…”
Not all IP is valuable beachfront property!! Skip The Trailer; I’m 100% Out.
#HiddenGem:The Surfrajettes “Heart of Glass”
Remember The Surfrajettes outstanding and surfy cover of Britney’s Toxic? They’re back with another remarkable and surfy cover: Blondie’s Heart of Glass.
Roller Fink their album with additional surfy covers like Heart of Glass is out April 22.
#SetTheVCR…#PSA: For All Mankind: Season 3
For All Mankind was to fill a Man in the High Castle hole in my heart. Instead I dropped it back in Season 1; Episode 3: Nixon’s Women.
No world building, no alternative history…just sitting around watching female astronauts fail like it’s a sci-fi Grey’s Anatomy drama. That third episode was awful!
Let’s replace The Right Stuff with The Breast Stuff is lousy TV writing. Of course being an astronaut is hard…gender isn’t a factor. So because it’s naturally difficult just what are we doing here? Where’s the drama? There’s supposed to be setbacks.
Can I skip Season 1; go right to Season 2? Maybe Season 3? Even if Episode 3: Nixon’s Women was such a struggle; I went and found my jacket and just left the party. The way I stormed out; I dunno if I can or even want to go back.
Anyways: bottom line. I’ll probably not return to it on June 10, 2022. So the title “For All” Mankind is a lie. This trailer is what should have been in the first episode. It’s better yet way too late.
