Drinking Jagermeister last night wasn't the greatest idea in the world. My head is killing me.

"Lion" was very good. I won't spoil anything for anyone, but it's a great story and the last 20 minutes or so are epic. I was on the edge of my seat. The little boy in the movie is amazing. How they got that kid to act so well is beyond me. They also did a fantastic job of keeping it somewhat optimistic while not shying away from some of the...less than savory stuff that goes down in India.

Minor criticisms: I didn't think Nicole Kidman was that great and don't understand how she got an Oscar nod. Rooney Mara's character was kind of a waste. They shined on a good portion of the main character's life, which led to some development issues at the end of the film.

I'm hoping to see "Get Out" this weekend. I've heard good things.

I'm fascinated by the discovery of the 7 Earth-like planets. 40 light years away doesn't sound so far...and then you find out it's like 2 quadrillion miles away and it would take forever to get there with today's technology.

Too bad the world won't make it long enough to find out anything about them.

Long run in Tri-Cities this weekend. Haven't been there since when I was married...which was in 2011. That was the spot where I told my then-wife I thought I was smarter than her, and she lost her shit. Not a great thing to say, but man, I never heard the end of that one. Here's to making some new memories
