December 2018

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Before we get going, we'd like to apologize for an error yesterday. We invited everyone over to watch the Chicago Med/Fire/P.D. fall finales last night but then later realized that those episodes were last week. Awkward. We'll try not to make such an egregious mistake again. The guys made you some coffee to make up for it, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. It looks like Nancy Pelosi has secured her spot as speaker of the House next year. Pelosi shut down... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm such a dolt sometimes. I've been dealing with sinus issues for weeks, if not months now. It's probably months. Everything flared up even more last week, and you may remember I mentioned that I lost my voice. It also made the pre-existing ringing in my ears worse, which is a drag. Well, it was finally pointed out to me that perhaps I needed to take some allergy meds. Pretty sure I should have thought of that. However, what makes it even worse is that I have no idea how many times I've... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! What's new? This week is off to a good start so far on this end. I took care of a number of errands yesterday and also ran into a guy I haven't seen in about 30 years, which was a treat. As far as today goes, it was about 8 degrees outside when I brought out the trash this morning, so that woke me up quickly. Thankfully, BDH and Little Buddha reminded me to put on my coat first. They were also kind enough to make some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD,... Read more →

Our staff follows Doctor Who rumors throughout the year, but we don't put much stock in them until there's an official announcement, because hey, anyone can post anything on the Internet. For instance, the story of Jodie Whittaker leaving at the end of series 11 turned out to be complete hogwash. That's why we didn't pay much attention to people who claimed to know that series 12 won't air until 2020. However, the BBC just confirmed that this is true. We're trying not to overreact, but the current feeling here is that the rest of 2019 is shot after "Resolution"... Read more →

It's time for the final regular season adventure of series 11, as the Doctor and friends receive multiple distress calls from the same planet and arrive to find a familiar foe waiting for them. Is this a strong finale? Let's discuss... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: First off, we're glad to see it looks like we're going to close things out this year with another proper science fiction story. Now, let's see where it goes. The Doctor and crew land on a planet that emits psychotropic waves that mess with your mind in all sorts of ways, so they've got to... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We were just looking at the calendar and realizing that sunsets start getting later towards the end of this week. Sure, it's just an extra minute on Thursday, but a minute here, a minute there, and it starts adding up pretty quickly, so we're excited about that! We also realized there are three weeks left to 2018, and we want to end the year on a strong note, so let's start by checking out today's headlines. The guys made some coffee, so help yourself to a nice... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Everyone is fine here at the moment. We were just looking at the extended weather forecast. Looks like we've got a cold week ahead, so it's a good thing we've already done our annual heating system maintenance. There appears to be some snow coming in about 10 days. Don't care for that at all, but we'll deal with that when it gets closer. In the meantime, the guys say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday...

(We'll try to keep this spoiler-free, but no guarantees!) After what feels like eons, the first Avengers: Endgame trailer finally dropped! We were all of 10 seconds into it before we marked April 26, 2019 down in the calendar to see how this story ends. As always, the first word that comes to mind when watching this clip is "epic." People are sad, people are dying, people are dead, and then some other people show up, and it's game on. Can't wait! Because we're trying to avoid spoilers, here is a vague question: Who do you think will be more... Read more →

There's been some silliness on the Internet recently (shocking, right?), as rumors were circulating that showrunner Chris Chibnall and star Jodie Whittaker would be leaving Doctor Who at the end of series 11. The story was no doubt some wishful thinking put out by a sad guy who's still irate that the Doctor is now "a girl." However, we can put the rumors to rest, because Jodie Whittaker confirmed that she'll be back for series 12. This is great news, as Whittaker has done a fantastic job making her mark as the 13th Doctor this year. The ratings reflect that,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? I don't think we've got anything major happening, besides me trying to make some progress on the Christmas shopping. I've got friends who have everything done by the end of Cyber Monday, which I envy, but my internal clock just doesn't work that fast. BDH and Little Buddha asked me what I want this year, and I told them it's the same thing I ask for every year - for them to continue hanging out with me and the Clutter Tree. They beamed...
