The Last of the Paneling

The contractor is here. He’s been here for a couple of hours or so. He took down the last of the kitchen/dining room paneling today and it is everything I dreamed it would be. There is still paneling in the hallway, but I don’t eat in the hallway (or to put it the way Connor McCleod of the Clan McCleod did, I don’t dine in the hall*). The end of the paneling will be a day long remembered (It has seen the end of Kenobi, and will soon see the end of the rebellion**).

The contractor is subcontracting one item on the to-do list out to someone else. That someone else is coming tomorrow at…

…wait for it…

7:30am.

Yeah, that’s going to suck out loud.

Totally worth it though.


*Highlander reference, of course. They had the French guy play the Scottish guy and the Scottish guy play the Egyptian via Spain guy. Fucking brilliant.

**Star Wars quote, of course. Most things in my tiny little brain are revolving around Obi-Wan Kenobi these days and they will until we get the full Disney+ series. The few things in my tiny little brain that are not revolving around the imminent release of Kenobi are revolving around Star Trek Picard. Oh, how yesterday’s enterprise***.

***Star Trek Picard quote that is a call back to the title of a Star Trek the Next Generation episode. A killer episode at that. Welcome to the 21st century, Q.

There Can Be Only One… Again

I am listening to this week’s Fatman Beyond podcast and Mr. Kevin Smith and Mr. Marc Bernardin just had a conversation about a movie that is still in the writing/casting phase that may redefine the entire universe.

Henry Cavill To Star in Lionsgate’s ‘Highlander’ Reboot From Chad Stahelski

Wait, what? Huh? Who? How? Really?

I didn’t want it. I never even considered it. It’s probably going to be an epic failure…

BUT I NEED IT!

Another Night, Another Song

Alonetone is having all sorts of trouble these days. I wonder if I am going to get this one posted.

On a thursday afternoon, I had a very short time for my lunch break. I decided to sneak in a lyrics and a vocal. The topic of deadlines came to mind and this stinker was born. It is meant to have a sound byte at the start of the song but I couldn’t get my mitts on it. Picture it: The movie Highlander. Connor and Castigere are on the bridge in Central Park. Castigere says, “Time has almost caught us, my friend” and then punches the railing five times.

That. That is what I want leading into this song. That is what became the title of this little suck fest of a crap dog.
