Happy Birthday to me! Yes, my birthday was yesterday and was one of the big milestones.... 50! I'm half a century old!! Ugh! When did this happen! Overall, it was a pretty good day and had a nice dinner at the local Japanese Hibachi restaurant. Hopefully 50 will be better than 49!

Well, it's supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year....

Spent the weekend getting the tree up and the first set of present wrapped. Of course, that was after running around doing last minute shopping and sending my FitBit to heights it usually doesn't see! Then again, I'm paying for all the extra walking and shopping.

Thought we had a

@midnight - I was phenomenal, but it makes me want to time travel to next May to see Avengers 4!  I think some of the best parts were seeing the interactions between the characters... Thor and Rocket, Spidey and Strange, etc.  Of course, they keep saying Ant-Man 2  (in 2 weeks!) holds part of the key to Avengers 4, and Captain Marvel (next March) is the other part.  Can't wait to see all three of them!
midnight:
YES the interaction was certainly the best part. I also loved the comedy I really appreciate the more laughs these newer avenger movies seem to produce hehe. So glad I found another fan!!

Hard to believe that I actually bought a Vinyl LP this weekend... the last one I bought was probably in the 1980's (as I severely date myself). I thought Lindsey Stirling was a good choice. Now I just need to hook up the turn table I bought a couple weeks ago so I can actually play it, followed by finding my box of LPs...

@user8992 - I'm saving up for a tube amplifier, which will complete the experience... after all the digital music, it's amazing to hear the 'old' analog music again!

That's awesome! I can imagine. So much more to it I bet.

Recently, I have found myself having a couple of songs from an anime series I recently watched being constantly on my mind. The series is ALDNOAH.ZERO, which I've watched a couple times now on Netflix. There are two songs that have just stuck with me that I think are absolutely amazing. The composer is Hiroyuki Sawano. He's fabulous. As I've been...

So, I went to see #GhostInTheShell last night in IMAX 3D. It was well worth it! And a bonus, our theatre gave out free movie posters too! The movie is visually stunning and true to the original anime movie. Even if you've never seen any of the original anime or any of the anime series, it's still a great movie! They did an...
