CB: Gonna Get Slossed & Other Stories

Extra

Last week went by so fast, and I have a feeling this one is going to end sooner than I would like as well. It always happens during the easier weeks, when the stress is minimal, and there’s more free time. The free time just gets lost, and then suddenly it’s Monday again. Am I making sense? Probably not, but then again, it’s Monday and nothing ever makes sense on Mondays.

GETTING SLOSSED

So it’s not some sort of weird personal thing, getting “Slossed” I mean, it’s actually a term I like to use when I go to see my favourite stand-up comedian Daniel Sloss. And this year, it’s going to be my third time seeing one of his stand-ups, and hopefully it won’t be the last. His humour is exactly right, he always tells a story with his jokes, and the last two stand-up acts have been filled with important life lessons. I love him! Which is why I can’t wait for Wednesday to be already today!

TV & BIG SCREEN WONDERS

So, last week I actually saw movies and I know I know, it’s been a while, but The Snowman really did a number on me you guys! It just, it sucked the joy of movie going out of me but luckily, THOR: RAGNAROK brought it back! I saw it on Friday, and it was wonderful! It was all kinds of funny, not just jokes funny but physical comedy as well. A lot of great comedic timing, Jeff Goldblum in space is like a fish in water! Chris Hemsworth has a shirtless scene that feels a lot longer than it actually is because time literally slows down as you witness that … man! It was wonderful. I will get to write about it on Wednesday though, so I’ll be hopefully a bit cooled off by then.

I also watched this week’s Across the Universe Podcast’s movie for our main discussion. I’m not going to tell you what it is, you will find out tomorrow. That’s how it goes, that’s me hinting at you guys to go listen to my first host-episode! I get to talk a lot, which is still a bit strange.

But, did you think I quit Netflix!? Oh no, no honey, no.. I started watching Jane the Virgin again because why not? After watching so many serious things, and so many heavy things, and having Thor: Ragnarok lighten my mood a bit, I thought, why not go back to comedy for a while. I don’t remember why I stopped watching Jane the Virgin, I don’t think it was anything bad, I just.. forgot about it. So I’m now rewatching the episodes I had already seen, and now I’m just enjoying the hell out of it. I had forgotten how sarcastically wonderful its humour was.

SONG OF THE WEEK

It is hard to start off the week with a song but I feel like I’m on a roll these past few weeks and I always seem to have a new song stuck in my head when I sit down to write this segment. This week, it’s Jessie J’s Not My Ex, which is a stripped down song with catchy lyrics, and it gets stuck in your head (oh, and the video is stunning!):

      I just finished the 12th chapter of season 1, I think I have now re-watched all the episodes I had seen before but I’m not totally sure. I just can’t remember where I left off! πŸ˜€

    I thought “getting slossed” was another phrase for getting drunk. lol
    I’m glad you liked Ragnarok too, but that shirtless scene was not long enough!

    Thanks for the link!

      You know, it should be a verb in real life and it could mean getting drunk.
      The shirtless scene needed to be in slow slow mo.

      It had it’s moments for me. Not the best of the year, not my favourite of the Marvel Universe, but the best Thor I’ve seen!
