Day 28 - 80s Marathon Cont.

I've been covering quite a bit of ground on Netflix streaming this summer. It's kind of fun to just go through the movies and pick random titles. I like to think I've got a pretty comprehensive movie background. I've been a huge movie fan for decades and have seen most of the must see titles. While scrolling through I came across one movie I haven't seen, "The Witness".

Days 26-27 - 80s flicks, Outback and a Holy Grail!

So I finally watched an 80s favorite of mine "Lucas". If you haven't seen this it is definitely worth watching. I'm always impressed with Corey Haim's performance in this movie. He really nails it and conveys the emotions a kid in Lucas' position would be feeling. I don't want to spoil it so if you haven't seen it, WATCH IT!

Days 23-25 - The Shore

The wife and I made the drive to Rehoboth beach to visit my in-laws. I was pretty excited to finally be hitting up the beach and walking on the board walk. As a kid I spent loads of time in the summer down the shore. It's always a nice jolt of nostalgia to hear arcade sounds, eat ice cream and check out the amusement park.

Day 22 - Life Itself

Today was a fairly lazy day. I cleaned up the man cave and watched Roger Ebert's documentary "Life Itself". It was pretty hot and I've had very few lazy days so I embraced the hell out of it!

Days 20/21 - Trains, Frogs, and Country Drives

So I got out of the city a bit these past few days. Nothing super exciting. I'll let the photos do the talking...
I was reminded of a U2 favorite -  "In God's Country"

Dissecting the Banner - Harry and the Henderson's

 Lately I've been toying with the idea of creating a new 80s inspired collage type banner for the old Nerd Nook. I also decided that before I do so I'd go back to something I thought of doing a while ago..... I give you the first installment of what I'm going to be calling.....
Dissecting the Banner!

LOEB - It's just not summer until...

Day 17 - An 80s Lunch

Today I took a buddy out for lunch who's getting married next week. We settled on Uno. For starters I love being off when it's crazy hot out. We went in ordered cold beers and I quickly realized they had an 80s playlist going......

Day 9 - Ghostbusters, Soccer, Paint and Laziness

The last thing in the title was really theme for day 9. In my defense I've been super busy and really hadn't spent much time bumming around. Yesterday I took care of that little problem!
