Hello everyone. Please forgive my absence here. I have had quite a busy month so far. I was hoping to get some more blog posts done last week but I think I only accomplished one or so posts. Before this crazy month I was posting almost every day, which is a lot, but I was having fun doing that. And I was having even more fun interacting with all you bloggers.

Silent Sunday Nights
Since I’ve been following Turner Classic Movie channel more lately I have found some themes that I like. Last week was Memorial Weekend so they were showing some oldie war films. Gramps and I ended up catching some of the M.A.S.H. movie to rewatch before going to bed. Tonight, Silent Sunday Nights is back with a “Fatty” Arbuckle (aka William Goodrich) film from 1926, The Red Hill. (TCM, Facebook). Looks to be a good calming night.
Here is my Silent Sunday Nights…

Brooding About the Brontës
When? April 18th (now) to April 24th.
Who? Brooding About the Brontës is a week event hosted by Girl with her head in a book. The full Announcement & Sign Up is here, along with the 411 information here. And the Launch & Link up post is available here.
Daily Topic Day 1: Why do you love the Brontës?
The Brontë family consisted with 5 sisters and their brother. The two eldest lived to be about 10 years old, which is sad, but the way things were at the time in the 19th Century. The other Brontë children lived to be about 30 years old (Charlotte being the only one to live up to 39 y.o.). My grandpa’s mother’s family had a lot of family members that died at a young age, some even just babies. This all was before and during World War I and when tuberculosis was a major cause of death.

Silent Sunday Nights
TCM channel shows Silent Films for their Silent Sunday Nights (and then a foreign film for their Imports). Tonight they were showing a 1932 Chinese film directed by Yu Sun called Wild Rose. It also is Yan Jin‘s first film role. This looks like a decent silent film, but since we had two things being recorded, plus the Anaheim Ducks hockey game, I could only watch the end of this film. For a Silent Film in 1932, Gramps says it depends all upon where in China it was filmed at, the warlords who later became communists and the Nationalist government. We both noticed that this movie plays in a lot with politics.
Now here is my Silent Sunday Nights and what I have been up to.
400. Wow. I’m just amazed with this amount of attention I have received here. I started blogging in October with little expectations, just wanting a place to write my thoughts and reviews as well as meet other bloggers. I’m just really blown away with this… well more a lose for words more like. I am super thankful for all those people that are following me. The number is still growing and it’s made me so happy this weekend.
Thank you thank you thank you. And thank you to all who have liked my posts and left comments. I have really enjoyed our conversations.
Thank you all again!
Ok now on to talking about what I have planned for the upcoming week and what not…. Continue reading “Silent Sunday Nights & 400+ Followers”
A Wednesday post of a few things I liked throughout the week.
Wazzup Tori Amos
On January 22, 2016, Tori Amos Tweeted that she will be remastering her 3rd album, Boys For Pele, for it’s 20th Anniversary. And in another tweet to go along with that announcement, added this statement:
“The newly #remastered #BoysForPele, released later this year, will include unreleased material + #bsides, club #remixes, & more. 🌟🎹🎉 #BFP20
– Tori Amos
Now I don’t think she’s forgotten about promising this remastered edition. She’s had posts on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. But if you’ve been under a rock or oblivious of these media stuff like I have, then this is new. I didn’t realize that this was the 20th anniversary until this post on Tori’s Facebook page. In that post she reposted @NickKBlamo about how he snagged a Boys For Pele promo window board.
So now it’s been almost 3 months since the anniversary and I’m greatly anticipating these unreleased material for Boys For Pele. In the meantime, here’s a video from MTV’s Unplugged concert in 1996.
Wazzup Action Movies & Superheroes?
This year there is 8 Superhero movies that I know of that is being released in 2016 (2 of are already in theaters, 6 of them are Marvel or DC Comics).
That’s an awful lot to keep track of for this year, not to mention the other big movies that are being released. So here’s a list of those Superhero movies and others that have and will be released this year. (Plus I made another list on IMDb.com)
The DC Comics movies are:
