GoT… and other shows.

Wholly dragon balls my friends, well friends who watch The Game of Thrones.  Last nights episode was Amazing!  Got to see Bran, and got to see at the end of course, what happened to Jon Snow!!!  If that wasn’t crazy, I don’t know what is, but then again it is only episode 2.  Whoa, whoa, whoa, this season is going to kick ass so hard, I am loving this show.  So glad I am able to watch it.  I will eventually have all the boxed sets.  Last night was crazy good, can’t wait to catch next Sundays episode.  Seriously people, I recommend this 200 percent.

I also recommend watching The blacklist.  With liz now dead, of course I don’t believe she is really gone, I think it is just to throw the bad guys off her sent, that have been hunting her down, they had to play like she died, but you know how writable these stories can be, I do believe that she is off for now, because she did have a baby in real life, they had to write all that into the story line, but it’s all hear say from me, I am not all that sure, but I am going with this story.  It has gotten really awesome, and since I  read that it has been picked up for season 4, I am all giddy with glee.  So watch, it is a really good show.

I am watching season 3 of The agents of Marvel, really good, really good, they also have been picked up for another season.  So, pretty much this year has been well off for things to watch, then of course there is Netflix, and the originals and things they are showing, loving every minuet of it, when I can get around to watching.  That is pretty much about it for now, so until the next time show watchers, enjoy this season, of prime time.

All Excited

For this weekend.   I and a couple of co-workers will be attending Cirque Du Soleil’s under the big top show called KOOZA .  Indeed I am all excited about this, I have heard so many great things about this show, and basically all of their shows.  This will be my first, and I hopefully not my last, for I have always wanted to attend since I first heard of them from my 8th grade High School French teacher.  I have watched some shows on the television, and I have been hooked on getting to see them live.

The only thing I don’t like is that, there is no camera’s allowed at all for the shows, I can see somewhat of why, but I am one who loves to take photos, but this will just have to be one that will be soaked up into my memory, and you will have to visualize off the words that I will write once I write them.  The show we will be attending is on this Sunday, so I am hoping to write about what I experienced the next day or so, just stay tuned readers; stay tuned.

What A Game…

Mom bought the first season of The Game of Thrones.  My, my, my and a game it is.  Awesome storyline, great acting, could use less nudity; plenty of carnage, in all I say…  Where the heck have I been all this time.  I am going to have to do plenty of catching up.  This show is awesome!  I practically stayed up till midnight watching it, knowing I had to be up at four am to get ready for work, oh yes, I may suffer today on the grind, but I do knowing it was well worth it.  I  have a new obsession!  Let the games begin!

Love knows no ending

Five years ago, I fell madly in love.  With the show Justified!  Yes,a television show like none I have ever seen.  It had gorgeous characters and brilliant writing.  I was hooked when I laid my eyes upon Deputy Marshall Raylin Givens, as played by timothy Oliphant.  It was a love affair that lasted six seasons.  Oh yes, we have had out differences; but overcame them.  Oh he left a trail of bodies from Miami to where it ended in Harlin Kentucky.  From the first scene with him telling one Tommy Bucks to leave Miami in 24 hours or he would shoot him.  To which he did, shoot Tommy bucks that is; to his  show down with or drawdown with Boone in the end.  It has been one hell of a show, with everything in between.

Yes indeed, I am madly in love with this show , love knows no ending; even though the show ended this year, and I have all the seasons for my collection.  I totally love the ending and how they wrapped or tied it all up.  I swear, most shows leave you with a fairly bad taste in your mouth, Justified was not that kind of show.  Sure, it could have continued to go on( I wish it would have), but the way they closed it out was top notch writing and superb acting.  For that I thank you Graham Yost, And the late Elmore Leonard.  This was truly a show for the ages.  If you have not watched it, download or go buy the DVD.  I highly recommend.  My love for this show has  been Justified!

Isn’t she lovely…

Indeed it was a night to behold, one night that will be cherished!  The Stevie Wonder concert was amazing!  It started a little rocky for us.  We left at 3:30 to ho check in at the hotel, decided to stay in a hotel after the concert down town close to the frank Erwin.  Took a taxi, half way there I screamed we have to turn around; I had in our rush out, had forgotten the tickets!  So we had to go back to the apartment, get the tickets and head out again to the hotel. 
Once we checked in, mom ordered food from mai tai’s Asian.  Then it was concert time, the sucky part was you could not bring cameras with detachable lenses in.  One of the cool things about my camera was to be able to take clear photos at concerts.  Well I was out of luck.  So had to use my camera phone; not the best pictures any way I did not let that get me down, I was in the presence of greatness! 
Mom and I had a blast last night.  Stevie rocked the joint.  It was more than I could have expected. 

Stay tuned, for the next concert update!

My Cheri amour !  A money shot indeed.  The tickets came in the mail.  Pretty much official, that myself and mom will be going to see the one and only ribbons in the sky Mr. Stevie Wonder. 

When I saw he was going to be here, I Knew, this would be the perfect way to say thank you to my mom.  Not just for the love she gives me, but for all she has done for me.  Especially since my move to Austin!  Both her and my step dad.  I really could not have survived without their help, support, and generosity.  Here’s to you mom…  may this concert blow both our minds, in a awesome way of course.

Day 298:

Today I am…  Not a Happy Camper!  This morning while laying on the couch with my phone in hand I turned it to the light, and what do I see?  Yesh!  A Crack, I have a cracked screen, it is an arched crack, but a crack none the less!  It must have happened yesterday at the festival, I dropped it, and I guess it was one drop to many, because now there is an arch crack in the screen.  Oh if it isn’t one thing, it’s your mother…  Well you get what I am saying here.  So now I am going to have to take sweet precaution with this phone until I can get a new one, and I am praying it will either be before the new year hits, or sometime early in the new year.  I have had nothing but problems with this phone since I moved down to Austin.  No, no, no, not happy at all!  But enough about my phone.

Yesterday was good, wish I had company to share all this with, but once again, it was a solo adventure.  Yes, had a good time, got some nice shots of the bands, Here are just a few that I captured.

The day was long, not a cloud in the sky, good weather, but boy was I tired when I left, didn’t get to stay to see the entire thing, but what I did see was amazing once again, these kids can sure put on a show.

Back to work tomorrow for me, my hours have drastically been cut, but at least I made enough this week, to pay what needs to be paid, the rest, well, I will not worry any about it, God has it all in hand.  So am excited to see sister and dad, that takes place Wed.

I am already thinking about Christmas, and decorating, this time around I am going to get that white tree, and I am going to decorate around the apartment, I saw some really cool flat led lights I am looking to get, once I obtain all this, I will let you know with photos.  Until then, it is only a thought that is forming in my mind.

Today I am…  Not a Happy Camper!

Day 228:

Today I am…  Feeling Powerful!  The power of Hercules that is, well a figure of speak.  Today me, my mom, and dad, went to watch Hercules at the movies, we were suppose to go yesterday, but ended up back in San Angelo, well we got back into town before noon, went to eat at the Luby’s, went back to the apartment.  Then headed out to watch Hercules.  Which in my opinion was awesome, the rock, rocked!

I have had so much fun these past few days with my mom, always a good time.  Her and my dad will be leaving out in the morning back to Angelo.  Always sad to see them go, but always a good time when they come down.  So the night has been well, and getting the last few hours before bedtime in with my mom, loving our grown-up talks.  Here’s to enjoying the weekend friends.

Today I am…  Feeling Powerful!

Day 40:

Today I am…  Tuned in.  So as all Austinites know, SXSW is quickly approaching.  Any music fans out there, that have been to this crazy music fest tell me, is it worth it?  I mean just the other day;  wristbands went on sale at 169.00 a pop.  If I had 169.oo would it really be worth it to get a wrist band.  I have heard so many things, and this is my first year of being an Austinite, that I may be able to head into this wild beast of a music fest, if work permitting.

For me, I think that seeing bands, and being in the pit of music is one of those, you have to at least do it once kind of thing, even though it happens every year here.  I am not too big on crowded places, and this place gets so packed with people, almost a nightmare kind of packed, I am praying that I can make it and enjoy what I can out of it.  I will be doing the freebie thing, meaning I don’t have a wristband, or a badge, so what I can see or experience will be from free concerts, and hanging out at the different bars that will have people playing music.  Hey perhaps if I enjoy myself, one day I will put up the big bucks to get a wrist band or badge, and be like the big boys and girls, and get into all the cool spots.

Oh, speaking of being tuned in…   I am making another goal to get to a performance this year.  I missed the mark with the Harry Connick Jr concert.  Now I am setting a new goal.  This sexy performer will be right here in Austin April 15, tickets for this show went on sale yesterday, I am trying to get closer to the date, but will keep you on top of all that when possible.  Who is this sexy, talented, musical wonder you ask, well even if you didn’t.  It is …

Oh yeah baby!  None other than the front man of Matchbox 20, solo artist extraordinaire  Rob Thomas.  Be still my excited heart, this man is deliciously yummy, well I think he’s pretty dang hot.  Love his music as well.  So I am hoping to make this concert in April.

It’s 10 am on a sunny Saturday morning, and now I think that I am going to listen to me some Rob Thomas.  Enjoy your day reader’s.

Today I am…  Tuned in.
