2017-18 TV Schedule

Subject to change, naturally:


The Flash
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Designated Survivor

The Orville

Agents of SHIELD

Shows I’ll probably check out:

Marvel’s Inhumans
Black Lightning

I don’t know about the new military-based/SEAL team wannabe shows, and there are a few.  Nothing else new looks interesting to me.


I wish I could say that I’ve seen Giants teams play worse that this year’s squad, but that would be a lie.

And it doesn’t help that the Dodgers seem to have put all the pieces together for a deep run into the playoffs.

I guess we’ll see in October.

This wasn’t much of a rant after all.

I waited a while before typing the title of this post, and starting to type the post itself.


Today I saw a few items during my Target run that I’d usually pick up right away.

But the fact that I have more than a few figures still in their packaging has made me curb my figure purchases.

I simply don’t have room for a lot of this stuff anymore.

Of course, this all goes out the window when Force Friday rolls around.


Monday I found one of those cards from the post office, telling me that they tried to deliver a package but they couldn’t and it would be held at the post office the next day, after 12 noon.

Tuesday I left work early in order to pick up the package, but they looked and said that it wasn’t dropped off yet, and to try back tomorrow.

Wednesday I left work early again to pick up the package, and again they couldn’t find it.  The postal worker game me a slip of paper with a phone number to call and to ask for the delivery manager.

Thursday I called and left a message with someone since the delivery manager was on another line, along with the tracking number.

I checked the tracking number, and all it said was that it was from Poland.

I have a pretty good idea what it is, a replacement miniature for a Kickstarter project/game.  I requested it and had it sent to my home address.  It was probably a small packet/envelope that may have been dropped or lost by the postman.

Friday I couldn’t seem to get a hold of anyone at that phone number, so I emailed the game people in Poland, explained what happened, and asked if they could sent another replacement to my work address.

Saturday I went back to the post office in the hope that maybe it was finally dropped off, but again it wasn’t.

This Monday I’ll try the phone number again, and maybe I’ll get lucky and they can find it, but in the mean time I’m hoping that the game people will send the replacement.  They never emailed me the first time around, so we’ll see what happens.

The Horror

Horror films: not a fan.

Never seen a Nightmare on Elm Street film.

Never seen a Friday the 13th film.

Never seen a Halloween film.


The Shining.


Never seen any of them.

Army of Darkness doesn’t count, even though it’s technically the 3rd film in a series.

Horror comics, on the other hand, are something that I’ve recently gotten into, thanks to folks like Dirk Manning, Kasey Pierce, and Dan Dougherty.

Not sure why I can read it, but not watch it.

And it’s not like I read horror novels, either.

Just comics.

It’s a change of pace from the usual Marvel/DC superhero books that I grew up with.

Go check ’em out!


I finally tried it today!

It came from a food truck outside of work.  Chicken shawarma wrap.

Not bad, salad was good, too.


My desire to play table top baseball appears to be directly influenced by how well the Giants and Mets are doing in real life.

Right now, both teams are below .500, with the Giants (38-63) dead last in the NL West, and the Mets (46-51) in 3rd place in the NL East.
