Happy Monday!

Live the life this Monday.

Sure, it sounds a little cheesy when put like that. Perhaps the profound meaning of it is lost in translation. And what better translator than music, specifically via Coldplay singing one of their smash hits.

Live the life Viva la Vida, ladies and gentlemen.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

A 3-3 Win for the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Today’s match between rivals Spain and Portugal fulfilled all the drama–before and during the game–short of a game-winning goal. And let’s be honest…this is one of those games where I should just point you to the highlight of the night.

Click PLAY, then click “Watch this video on YouTube” (FIFA stuff) and then please return to Jimmy’s Daily Planet. 

Instant Reaction:

Spain will view the 3-3 tie as a loss as they were pre-game favorites. They had the chance to win the game, collect three-points and sit atop Group B in pole position.

Portugal will likely view the 3-3 tie as a win as they were pre-game underdogs. Led by superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat trick that served as the scoring bookends for the day (4th and 88th minute), the Portugeuse now have an opportunity to sincerely challenge Spain to win Group B.

Slightly More Reaction:

It’s a little difficult to tell if Spain and Portugal will continue at this pace, both in style and proficiency, throughout the tournament. Was this performance by both nations more of an isolated rivalry game that, like Ohio State and That Team Up North, just ignites an unexplainable fire that fuels players to accomplish the spectacular? Time will certainly tell, particularly outside of Group B against comparable top competition.

Either way, the hype is real–and was heart-poundingly real in Spain vs. Portugal–for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

From Russia with love for the beautiful game.

The Future (and Past?) Will Be Wyld

It’s officially happening!

27 years removed from Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Alex Winter and  Keanu Reeves–Bill and Ted, respectively–are returning to the iconic characters for the third chapter in their time-traveling adventure journey awesomeness. Hopefully, nostalgic B-movie magic from the ’80s and ’90s is on the way with the original title characters, along with the original sequel writers and a talented director.

If done correctly, this new sequel could be something special. Sadly, George Carlin is not here to reprise his critical and funny portrayal as Rufus. Major bummer. How will they handle this? While perhaps an overstatement, the way in which the filmmaking team deals with curious George’s death from a decade ago could be a signal as to whether this new story will work on a level beyond the obvious. The other key factor to watch for is if Bill & Ted 3 is an extension of the original two films or if it’s a caricature of the original two films.

This kind of stuff will determine if Bill & Ted 3 will be excellent or bogus.

P.S. Jimmy’s Daily Planet is proud to have been following this developing story for some time…

Happy Monday!

Need inspiration this Monday?

Whether you are dealing with tight deadlines in the office or getting kids ready for school, we can all use some motivation to get us going. Instead of attempting to cater to each person’s individual circumstance, it seems like a better approach to spotlight someone who appeals to a larger audience. And in the case of today’s post, the featured speaker received quite the revival this past year with starring and supporting roles via two highly-acclaimed movies (Dunkirk and Darkest Hour) and a highly-acclaimed show on Netflix (The Crown).

Now go be the master of your fate.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
