December 2019

Adam Sandler and "great movie" is not a pairing that generally comes to mind. The SNL alum was king of the the box office in the late 1990's with easy comedies like Happy Gilmore, Waterboy, and The Wedding Singer. However, he's been known for the better part of the last two decades as the king of the "Razzie Awards" with many nominations for the worst movies and performances of the year (with an occasional exception like Punch-Drunk Love and Spanglish.) With that in mind, it was intriguing to hear critics saying that he deserves an Oscar nomination for his role... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and happy New Year's Eve to you all! Any big plans before we turn the page on 2019? I've got to do another round of shoveling, but other than that, it should be pretty quiet around here. Oh, hold on...BDH and Little Buddha want to know if I'll make a run to the bookstore for them. Yeah, we can make that happen. The guys are so excited about that, they made coffee to celebrate. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. (BDH and Little Buddha want to help some terrific... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy final Monday of the year to you all. It looks like 2019 wants to go out on a memorable note. BDH and Little Buddha say the forecast calls for freezing rain all day today until it turns into snow tonight. That then turns to a snow/rain mixture, followed by rain until Noon on Tuesday. I have a couple of errands that have to be done before Wednesday, so I might just see if I can get a running start and then slide from here to there in a bit. Anyway, we'll deal with... Read more →


Hi everyone, It's that time again! We've wrapped up another year at Clutter Headquarters, made new friends all over the world, and poured who knows how many thousands of cups of coffee over the last 12 months. We're looking forward to the arrival of 2020 (especially since it starts with the new season of Doctor Who on New Year's Day), but let's take one last look back at this year before we go shopping for a new calendar. Our staff always has a hard time narrowing down our favorite posts of the year, because we like each and every one... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's everything going? We just realized we won't be here tomorrow because of a belated Christmas party, so BDH and Little Buddha wanted to make sure we hung out with all of you for a bit today. I'm trying to figure out the to-do list for the final weekend of the year. There are a few of the usual errands, and then there's the party, but I think it's pretty quiet besides that. The guys say that's fine, because it means they have more time to watch Chicago Fire reruns on IMDbTv. We may have to... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! It's so good to see all of you again. Before we get down to business, we may still have some additional scheduling issues between now and January 1, but then we should be back to normal for a while after that. Anyway, we hope you all had a great Christmas. It was a mixed bag here. I discovered Christmas morning that Mom Clutter apparently gave away all of our ornaments shortly before she died. For those asking why I only found out this year, I didn't have the heart to look in the box before, and... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and merry Christmas Eve to you all! A quick programming note: We will be out of the office tomorrow, and then Thursday will be a game-time decision. One way or another, we'll be back again on Friday. I'm going to take a quick trip to the bookstore later today to see if I can find any last-minute gifts for BDH and Little Buddha in the "new releases" section. Other than that, I think we're all set and ready to spend a good part of today/the next week watching the Doctor Who marathon on BBC America. Oh,... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. First off, we want to wish a happy Hanukkah to everyone who is celebrating it. How many folks here have this week off? There was a stretch many moons ago when I used to end my work year on Christmas Eve. Hey, you can't let those vacation days go to waste, right? That was always a fun little present to give myself. BDH and Little Buddha just asked when they get their vacation days. I told them to submit their paperwork, and then we'd figure it out. I might have... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all doing fine, except that I kept thinking yesterday was Sunday, because the New England Patriots were playing, and now I have to fight off the feeling that today is Monday. BDH and Little Buddha say they're happy to keep reminding me that it's still the weekend. It's about 15 degrees outside right now, so I'm going to hold off on today's to-do list until closer to Noon, because we're supposed to have a high around 40 degrees. In the meantime, let's check out today's headlines. The guys say the coffee is... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and happy Friday! This week blew by in a flash. Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve always goes by quickly around here. Any big plans for the weekend? Our biggest challenge will be to remember that the New England Patriots are playing tomorrow instead of Sunday. Don't want to show up at Dad Clutter's house on the wrong day. BDH and Little Buddha just said the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter. (BDH and Little Buddha want to help some terrific animals find their forever... Read more →
