Stephen King! Brew a strong tea: yo!
The First Yo of The Day.
“Down here, it’s just winners and losers and “Don’t get caught on the wrong side of that line”
Well, I’m tired of coming out on the losing end.” ~ Bruce Springsteen // Atlantic City
Plusaversary //Disney+ Day
As for today’s cover image: Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings drops on Disney+ on November 12 as well as Plusaversary an original short from The Simpsons. “Springfield hosts a Disney+ Day party, and guests from across the service are invited, except Homer.”
(And as a bonus Canadians on their Disney+ get Hulu’s Dopesick. So that’s dope…)
All of this is the exact same day as Netflix’s Red Notice. Huge day in the streamer wars. #SetTheVCR for all this.

Curry In A Hurry
The Goal Is Soul.
Just because Steph Curry pulls up from 30 feet doesn’t mean it should become fashionable. Or even acceptable.
Talent is not and has never been evenly distributed.
He’s good; that doesn’t mean you are or you can be. Know your limits and play within it.

Who You Gonna Call?
Confirmed! I am 100% Out: Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
The reason this one is called Afterlife is because the last Ghostbusters movie (Chickbusters) was so wretched it rightfully got killed.
This is not an improvement; this is like the latest Terminator movie (also inferior). So Nope. I’m ghosting Ghostbusters.

New Day; New Stephen King Adaptation
The Boogeyman from King’s 1978 collection Night Shift is gonna become a Hulu movie.
This’ll be the third adaptation for this short story…last one was in 2010.
We’re lived long enough to see an era of Stephen King movie remakes now.
#SetTheVCR: The NBA 75th Anniversary Season
The #NBA75 celebrates the Toronto Huskies (awful name!). The first game in NBA history between the Toronto Huskies and New York Knicks was played 75 years ago: November 1, 1946. Woah, yo.
Marty Glickman Marv Albert before Marv Albert was immortalized by Jack Kerouac in On the Road:
“Man, have you dug that mad Marty Glickman announcing basketball games — up-to-midcourt-bounce-fake-set-shot, swish, two points,” Kerouac wrote. “Absolutely the greatest announcer I ever heard.”
Today (November 1) marks the 75th anniversary of the first game in league history, in 1946! The schedule called for the Toronto Huskies to host the New York Knicks to open the season at Maple Leaf Gardens. 🇨🇦#NBA75 pic.twitter.com/V8aeeDWjAx

#TrailerAlert: The Doors – Live At The Bowl ’68
I honestly truly believe with the firm robust certainty of the Pope’s faith that Jim Morrison successfully faked his own death. Many will enter and few will succeed.
Also? The Doors Live At The Bowl has been fully restored. And “The Doors” opens in Toronto this week!
#SetTheVCR…PSA: One of Us Is Lying
For Canadians another Peacock Original: One of Us Is Lying airs tomorrow night on the W Network (about a month after it debuted in the US on October 7, 2021). Which is taking a break from their usual Hunk Month programming?
Based on a popular YA novel this show is a murderous Breakfast Club: 5 high school students enter detention; only 4 of em walk out.
One of Us Is Lying | November 3 |W Network 9 p.m.
