June Weekend Flicks Part 1: The Fugitive, Cloud Atlas, My Cousin Vinny, and more.

It’s been another weird month of quarantine, indeed. But at least the weather here in New England has been for the most part, excellent. No complaints on my end. In fact, I actually got plenty of time to sit down in June and enjoy some films on my watchlist I have been putting off forContinue reading “June Weekend Flicks Part 1: The Fugitive, Cloud Atlas, My Cousin Vinny, and more.”

Missing Live Music? Me too. Let’s talk about it.

I will be the first to say I’ve had it very, very good when it comes to the ability to see live shows in the past year and a half.
