Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/27/19 — 6/2/19


How is it June already!?

2019 is flying by a lot faster than I thought it would. This month is going to be about playing catch-up. Interestingly, this month is also going to be about going on vacation before my summer job at the Big Brother Blog begins so we’ll see how those two goals mix.  (Fear not!  Even while I’m keeping the Big Brother Blog updated, I’ll also be posting film review here and over at Horror Critic!)

I have a feeling that a lot of the stuff that I had planned for 2019 is going to end up happening in 2020 but that’s okay. Numerically, 2020 is going to be an important year for obvious reasons.  Just remember that 2020 backwards is 0202.  Regardless, it all adds up to four.

Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/20/19 — 5/26/19


Let’s see.  Last week started with my DVR exploding and me slightly burning my thumb while unplugging it.  I lost a total of 267 recorded programs.  That was bad.

However, I got a new DVR on Wednesday and the little burn mark on my thumb that had me so concerned has nearly faded away.  Even more importantly, I no longer have the obligation of watching those 267 recorded programs hanging over my head.  Sometimes, losing something is the only way that you can move forward.  So, that’s good.

This week is ending with me shadowbanned on twitter, which means that my tweets are currently not showing up in twitter searches.  Needless to say, this is very frustrating, especially since Twitter refuses to tell me what I did to upset their precious algorithm.  That’s bad.

However, shadowbans are only temporary and I have enough followers who are generous with their likes and retweets that not showing up in a twitter search isn’t going to massively effect the number of people who come across my reviews.  And, even more importantly, all of the drama over the twitter algorithm has reminded me of just what a first world problem social media truly is.  (I mean, seriously — go tell someone living in a war zone about how getting temporarily shadowbanned is the worst thing that ever happened to you.)  If nothing else, this has helped me to gain some sort of perspective and that’s a good thing.

Finally, I spent today and I’ll be spending most of tomorrow at Lake Texoma with the people who I love.  And you know what?  That’s the most important thing of all.  Above all else, there is love.

Have a good week, everyone.

Lisa’s Week In Review: 4/29/19 — 5/5/19


What a week.  We lost two cultural icons, the director John Singleton and the actor, Peter Mayhew.  I have to say that I was surprised and kind of touched to discover that, after starring in one of the most successful films of all time, Peter Mayhew ended up settling down in Boyd, Texas.  I’ve driven through Boyd, it’s a nice little town and, from what I’ve heard, Peter Mayhew was a nice man.

On a happier note, Happy Cinco De Mayo, everyone!  And, on a purely personal note, I feel like I’m back.  After spending last month struggling to get anything written, I feel like I have finally woken up and I’m ready to enjoy the rest of the year!  That’s the power of Avengers: Endgame, I suppose.

Have a great week everyone!  Here’s what I watched, read, and listened to this week:

Films I Watched:

  1. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
  2. Boyz N The Hood (1991)
