It's like this. You were always going to go and see Bill & Ted Face the Music because you loved the original Bill & Ted movies, because you're a child of the 80s and because you'll always have a soft spot for Keanu Reeves and because being excellent to each other never seemed like too … Continue reading Bill & Ted Face the Music
Time takes on a very different meaning in Christopher Nolan's Tenet. Unrelated: it's been nearly six months since we updated this blog. I went to see Tenet yesterday, in an actual cinema. It's been months since I've been to see a movie and I was so ready. I would have gone to see Tenet anyway … Continue reading Tenet: The Interception Between Interstellar and Inception
Usually these Music Monday post titles reference a car playlist but, like a lot of people, I've been working from home for the past couple of weeks. So, while I haven't had a commute to listen to my playlist, I have been able to listen to my music whenever I want which is a novel … Continue reading Music Monday: Hils’ March 2020 Playlist
Welcome to our sometimes-weekly hockey update. I expect this will be the last for a while, given latest circumstances. Even though approximately eighteen years have passed in the span of a week, there were actually hockey games in living memory. The last Caps game was played on Monday, a shootout loss to Buffalo, attended by … Continue reading 15th March: Sunday Overtime – Shutout
We're all going through something right now, aren't we? The world is looking pretty grim and unappealing, and more and more of us are being advised to socially distance ourselves, which is great for the introverts and bookworms, but we're not all built to hide away. The book series I'm recommending in this post are … Continue reading So You Have To Self Isolate 2.
Now, don't get me wrong. Self-isolation sounds like a dream. Two whole weeks to catch up with TV and reading. It would be delightful if it wasn't so serious. I've been thinking a bit about my comfort reads, and my non-comfort reads, and figured I would share them with you in a series of posts. … Continue reading So You Have To Self-Isolate 1.
Welcome back to our once-upon-a-weekly hockey digest. Following holidays and other events, I'm hoping to resume weekly posting. 01. Outbreak Remember when Sidney Crosby said he didn't have the mumps but we all saw the picture and it turned out that he very much had the mumps? Why do I ask? Oh. No reason. This … Continue reading 8th March: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
I was travelling back from a convention yesterday so please enjoy Music Monday on a Tuesday. February was an interesting month. I spent 2 weeks in Denver going to a bunch of Colorado Avalanche games, so I didn't have as much commuting time to listen to my playlist as I usually do. However, there were … Continue reading Music Monday: Hils’ February 2020 Car Playlist
After a month of alternating between my favourite songs from last year's playlists and holiday songs it was nice to get back into the routine of discovering new music. It's funny, when I listen to a new playlist for the first time some songs I connect with and fall in love with on the first … Continue reading Music Monday: Hils’ January 2020 Car Playlist
Yes, I am actually posting a Sunday Overtime on Sunday but, as the eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed, I didn't post at all last week. I gave myself a bye week, albeit unintentionally. Do you ever have those days or weekends or weeks when you are just not able? Yeah, that was me last … Continue reading 26th January: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
