Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 6/22/20 — 6/28/20


Oh, what a week.

Foolishly, I assumed that the world would be able to basically re-open in July but, as June comes to a close, it’s obvious that is not going to be the case.  All of the big theatrical releases for July — Tenet, Mulan, that Bill & Ted movie — have been pushed back to August and, to be honest, it wouldn’t surprise me if they got pushed back again.  A lot of people out there are saying that we should just all stay inside until there’s a vaccine for COVID-19 but who knows when that will be?  Whenever I hear anyone say that we’ll have a vaccine in 6 months, I want to point out to them that I thought the country would be able to reopen in July.  There’s a lot of wishful thinking out there right now.

Me?  I’m wearing a mask when I go out and I’m being careful.  I’m practicing social distancing.  I’m washing my hands.  I’m doing everything that I know can be done.  That’s really all I can do right now.

Oh well!  This upcoming week, I will be taking a little mini-vacation up at Lake Texoma.  I’m looking forward to meditating and recharging and getting some writing done.  I’ll probably listen to a lot of Bob Dylan.  And yes, I’m taking along a few DVDs because reviewing movies is something that keeps me focused and centered.  Mostly, though, I’m just looking forward to taking a break from all the noise of the world.

Here’s what I watched this week:

It’s been a long week.  I’m currently limping because I sprained my big toe and it’s also summer in Texas, which means that the 100 degree day has arrived!  Oh well.  The first week of June is always unbearable, to be honest.  When you go from reasonably temperate weather to walking into a wall of heat every time you step out your front door, it tends to lead to a certain amount of creative lethargy.

Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/11/20 — 5/17/20


This week, I finished binging The Sopranos and then, as the result of an ill-advised twitter poll, I followed that up by watching all 6 seasons of the HBO prison drama, Oz.  To be honest, Oz wasn’t really for me but twitter polls are legally binding so I was obligated to watch the whole series.  I’ve now started in on Deadwood, which I should be able to knock out in about 3 days.

As far as our quarantine is going, we are currently in the process of reopening down here in Texas.  Myself, I’m still working at home at least through June.

Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/4/20 — 5/10/20


Well, here we are at the end of another week.  Some parts of the country are still locked down and some are not.  It’s a little bit hard to keep track of what’s open and what isn’t.  Right now, everyone just seems to be making it up as they go along.

With a lack of new movies to watch and review, I spent most of this week binging The Sopranos.  I’m currently on Season 5 and, as of right now, I’m totally caught up in the misadventures of the New Jersey mob.  Once I’m done with The Sopranos, I’ll probably check in with the gangsters of Boardwalk Empire and the cowboys of Deadwood.  I’m trying to binge as many of these shows as I can before they leave Prime for HBO MAX.

In other news, I finally saw the episode of The Love Boat that features Andy Warhol as a passenger on the cruise!  Seriously, I first read about this episode like 13 years ago and, ever since, I’ve been checking the TV listings to see if it would ever show up on any of the retro stations!  Today, it was broadcast on MeTV!  I saw it and yes, I DVRed it.

Anyway, stay safe out there.  Can you believe that, in just another month and a half, we will be halfway through 2020.  With the lockdown and all the rest, it almost feels like this year really hasn’t even begun yet.

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 4/13/20 — 4/19/20


Another week comes to a close.  During previous years, I would really be freaking out if I had accomplished so little by April 19th.  This year, I know that I’m actually probably doing better than most, just by the fact that I haven’t lost my mind yet.
