(That's right. You heard me. It's gonna be an excellent week!)
While I'm certainly hoping everyone had a weekend for the history books, it's now time to buckle back down to the business of making ends meet ends. A new week will understandably bring new challenges and new opportunities, so I do expect each and every one of my readers to pick himself (or herself) up by the bootstraps and embrace whatever life throws at you in the seconds, minutes, hours, and days ahead. Don't worry: you've got this ... just like you did last week.
Ahhhh ... what do I have to report this morning?
Well, not a whole heckuva lot. As I mentioned last week, the weekend was a bit of a flurry for our household. I had some volunteer stuff to attend to, as did the wifey, but we did manage to celebrate our wedding anniversary. (Awww ... thank you! Thank you!) On Friday, we went up and out to a wonderful arts festival in Fountain Hills, and I even strayed outside of my comfort zome and picked up this wonderfully iconic Star Wars flannel-style shirt. I'll put up a link -- perhaps tomorrow -- for a few of the booths I visited, as I do try to be a big supporter of folks who both stray outside their comfort zones as well as try to make a living entirely off of their talents. In that vein, this craft show didn't exactly have as much to offer as it did last year, but I do so love walking and admiring what some folks can do with their own two hands. It's inspiring, to say the least.
Still, I did manage to squeeze in a viewing last night: Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Running Man -- in 4K glory -- came to Amazon.com's Prime Video, and I couldn't pass it up. It's a film I've always personally felt was flawed in construction but tried so very hard to say something about the world we live in. Because it's a feature I've always wanted to say something about -- mostly because I disagree with so many fans who think it's a genius production -- I finally sat down this morning and sketched out my central premise. Fans who wish to know more can check out my review right here, and I do encourage it because it's one of those rare occasions where I ventured into creative territory, telling you actually what I would've done to make it even more special than it is. I do hope you read it and even sound off on my suggestions.
Naturally, there's more to celebrate in All Things Genre today, but I'll leave those discoveries to each of you. Interested parties? Well, you can find this mountain of goodness right here ...
Lastly -- as always -- thank you for reading ... thank you for sharing (that's always a plus 'round these parts) ... thank you for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
