Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2019 by getbent57

Big_Country_In_A_Big_CountryTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  Growing up used to hate the song In a Big Country by Big Country.  Think this was because it was on the radio all the time.  Now I don’ hate it as much since I have picked it for this weeks song.  This is off their first album The Crossing, released in 1983. The song holds up well.  As for the music video not so much.  It is very 80’s.  You can see for yourself > here or below.

Queen_Dont_Stop_Me_NowFor the month of January (2019) have been only using Queen songs musical throwback Thursdays.  This will be the last one.  Not sure I will will pick a different band for next month but it does sound like a good idea.  The thing there isn’t that many brands I like multiple songs from.  For this weeks pick, it’s Don’t Stop Me Now.  This is their 1978 album Jazz.  It ones of those song that get stuck in your head and the words are very easy to remember.  Give it a listen/watch > here or below.

The Umbrella Academy

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on January 30, 2019 by getbent57

The_Umbrella_AcademyThere is any interesting comic book inspirited show coming to Netflix in February (2019).   It is called The Umbrella Academy.  It is based of the comic book series of the same name.  After watching the trailer > here or below.  I will be watching it for sure.  Looks really good.  The base plot is pretty cool.  Taken from Wikipedia, “On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.”

It will be on Netflix February 15, 2019.  Will be adding it to my list.  Will have to check out the comics is based on as well.

They put out some videos.  Which you can see the trailer > here or below.   Didn’t really like the dark zone stuff in the first game.  Only gave it a try a few times.  Wasn’t very fun.  Because you petty much don’t have any change if you play solo.  It looks like they are fixing that in this new one.  They explain the changes in this video > here or below.  Will be adding this one to my list.  Set to be out March 15, 2019.
