Into the Wild

Early tomorrow morning I’ll be joining a staff of excellent people and helping take a large group of kids into mountains for skiing.  Skiing is a bit outside my skill set. I blame that on growing up in Florida and Georgia where, for the most part, skiing meant water not snow. Of course, I’m not … More Into the Wild

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e06: Immortal Emerges from Cave

One thing I can say about this show is that it is making me want to go back and reread some comics. Sometimes comics, just like books, are better than the shows they are turned into. The question I have after this episode is do I go back to the originals, or do I just … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e06: Immortal Emerges from Cave

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e05: Under Leaf Pluck Lotus

Wow. Time flies. Has it been three days since I’ve reviewed an episode? Still not really used to this whole binge dump process. It does make it harder to review things, I can tell you that. But that is why a hero needs to rise. And review shows. Yeah. Iron Fist s01e05: Under Leaf Pluck … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e05: Under Leaf Pluck Lotus

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e04: Eight Diagram Dragon Palm

We’ve had three passable episodes in a row. Sure, they haven’t been as on fire as the first few episodes of other series, but I still don’t think they are as bad as was reported. They’ve been fun, and I’ve been interested in seeing where the story is going. But, with this episode, I think … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e04: Eight Diagram Dragon Palm

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e03: Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch

I took a look at the title of this episode and after the more pastoral titles of episodes one and two, i was thinking that this would be were things jump off and turn insane. Well, that wasn’t the case. It was more interesting that episode 2, maybe not as much as episode 1. Iron … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e03: Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e02: Shadow Hawk Takes Flight

After so many negative reviews, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the first episode. But what will episode 2 bring? Iron Fist s01e02: Shadow Hawk Takes Flight writer: Scott Buck director: John Dahl Netflix Quick Review: In the previous shows, all the Marvel/Netflix dramas have started off with a breakneck pace. That is … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e02: Shadow Hawk Takes Flight

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e01: Snow Gives Way

A new Marvel Netflix show is out, and the major difference is that it is being panned by the critics. Now, I’ve ventured into the last three shows and have really joined their beginnings, but ultimately lost most of that enjoyment by the end. Let’s see how the beginning of Iron Fist compares. Iron Fist … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e01: Snow Gives Way

Graduation 2017

I’m currently sitting in a train collecting my thoughts. This morning was the graduation and luncheon at the elementary school I work at. Regular readers might know that this is my third school year working here, even though I started near the end of that first school year. On the whole this school has been … More Graduation 2017
