Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 11/4/19 — 11/10/19


Hi, everyone!  Greetings from beautiful Lake Texoma!

Well, as you can tell it’s been kind of a quiet week around the TSL Bunker.  We’re all still recovering from October!  However, that quiet is about to end.  Not only is Awards Season rapidly approaching but my DVR has so many things recorded that it’s going to explode if I don’t start watching some of it.

In other words, starting next week, it’s going to be all about getting caught up with the films and recording of 2019!  As you can tell by looking below, I’ve already gotten off to a fairly good start.

Finally, my birthday was this Saturday.  A new year has begun.  Through the Shattered Lens’s birthday will be in December.  This site will be 10 years old!  I’m currently making all sorts of plans for how we’re going to celebrate being a decade old.  I promise you this: you’re going to love what we have in store for 2020.

Another Halloween Has Come and Gone…


Another Halloween has come and gone and with it, another Horrorthon.  Thank you to everyone who read and commented this month!  We hope you have had a wonderful October and that you’re November brings you much to be thankful for!

And remember, just because you didn’t see the Great Pumpkin this year, doesn’t mean that he won’t be there for you next October.  I think Linus can explain it best:

To all of our readers and from all of your friends at the Shattered Lens, thank you.

The Nationals Have Won the World Series


It took seven games but the Washington Nationals have won the 2019 World Series.  Being a Texan, I was cheering for the Astros the whole time but Nationals earned the victory and no one can take it away from them.

Congratulations to Washington for showing what can done with some talent and a lot of luck and also to the Nationals for not only going to the World Series for the first time but winning too!  My Rangers have gone twice and they still haven’t won.

(I’m not bitter at all, by the way.  If anyone needs me, I’ll be in a corner, crying and watching that clip of Rougned Odor punching Jose Bautista’s sunglasses off of his face.)

Here’s hoping that the rest of Washington D.C. follows their baseball team’s example, gets their act together, and concentrates on winning a victory for America.

And now, it’s time to start counting down the days until the start of the 2020 regular season!
