new-year-fireworks.jpgYet another year has come to a close.   Lots of people like to look back at the year what was.  Which can be fun to remember all the good things that happened.   Most important thing to so is look at head.   Set new goals and try to make them happen.   Have tried that in the past but never got very far.  However going to try again.  What is what starting a new year is all about.   Want to thank all who have found my blog and a bigger thank you to those who come back.  Happy New Year.

A_Knight_Of_The_Seven_Kingdoms.jpgHave been eyeballing the book from George R.R. Martin called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms ever since I first heard about it.  So was very happy to unwrap a copy this Christmas.   The book brings together three novellas for the first time.   They are set in the same world as the Ice and Fire series, aka Game of Thrones. The stories take place about 90 years before that storyline starts.  Have read The Hedge Knight: The Graphic Novel.  Which is based off the first story from this book.   Which was pretty good.  So can’t wait to read the full stories.

christmas-tree.pngI hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  Last year there was lost of wind and some rain.  This year however was really warm for the end of December.  Think it was a 8°C.  Went outside with just a light jacket on.   As all ways my favourite part of Christmas the food.  Which was awesome.  The past few years couldn’t got back for seconds because I was too full.  This year was still full but had to have more.  Being Boxing day it just as good for food.  Hot turkey sandwich’s it will be.

A_Muppet_Family_Christmas.jpgI know I shared this last year.  But going to do it again because The Muppets are awesome.  This special A Muppet Family Christmas and The Muppet Christmas Carol are the two best ones.  Watch these two every year.  They never get old.  Own a copy of Family Christmas on VHS which has stuff cut out.  Could never find a copy of DVD.  Then last year found the full thing on YouTube > here.  It has been taken down yet.  Which is nice.  Give it  watch.

A Very Murray Christmas Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on December 22, 2015 by getbent57

A_Very_Murray_ChristmasWas looking for a new Christmas themed show or special to watch.  Then remember seeing, A Very Murray Christmas, being advertised being on Netflix.  Had know idea what to expect other than Bill Murray would be singing.  Turns out he is not bad at it.  How ever the show felt a bit jarring at first.  Because some of the famous actors were playing characters.  While other were playing “themselves”.   Starts off in a hotel during a snow storm.  Which stop people from coming on to TV special that Bill Murray would be putting on, that falls part.  The next bits have him singing Christmas songs with people in the hotels bar.  Then ends with you with big song and dances numbers with more famous people.

Over all it wasn’t bad.  On other hand don’t think this will be come a Christmas classic.  Only kind of laughed in two spots.  They sing a lot of standard songs we all know.  All so mix is some I never heard of.  Which was nice.  If you have Netflix or finished watching all the Christmas shows you like.  Check it out.  It’s not bad but not great.
