Lisa’s Week In Review: 7/1/19 — 7/7/19


Did everyone survive Independence Day?

It’s been quite a week here at the Shattered Lens Bunker.  First off, Jeff (a.k.a. Jedadiah Leland) started a personal blog on Monday and, two days later, he ended up breaking one of the biggest stories of the week!  Seriously, when I looked at the reaction to his post, I finally got to do my imitation of Edie Falco in The Comedian exclaiming, “YOU’RE GOING VIRAL!”

Meanwhile, our own Case Wright, had his Stranger Things theory proven correct!

Finally, Patrick celebrated his birthday on the 1st!  Happy birthday, Pat!
