We Can Reset, but on My Terms

When can you and when can’t you?

Depends on the situation and the person.

If it’s a normal individual, then it is within the realm of possibility to hit the “reset button” in certain circumstances. If that individual is Larry David from ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ then the answer is definitely no.

Hilariously no.

And, in actuality, today is the perfect day to hit the aforementioned and ever-famous reset button. Why? Because the question posed at the top is “When can you and when can’t you?”

When? On Wednesday.

You have got to admit that’s pretty good…pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Can a Jet Get Jet Lag?

Randomness is a wonderful thing.

‘Silicon Valley’ is a brilliant show, even without T.J. Miller. Although, admittedly, we do miss the on-screen hilarity of the obnoxious yet somehow likable¬†Erlich Bachman of “Bachmanity” and “Aviato” (spoken in that very specific manner).

The off-screen and behind the scenes T.J. Miller is another story altogether. And it was reportedly not a good one as revealed by castmates and executive producers/directors of the HBO show.

Regardless, there are so many fantastic characters who do make ‘Silicon Valley’ one of the best written and acted shows on television. One of these aforementioned characters is none other than Matt Ross who plays equal parts tech giant and megalomaniac,¬†Gavin Belson.

(FYI – There is one f-bomb in the video below)

That’s his character’s signature mentality. He has another signature–I’ll save that for another day when laughter is needed.

The Sound of Returning to Yellowstone

Movie and TV soundtracks are a musical art form reliant on imaginative pressure points and successful through emotional connection. Somewhere between the macro and the micro of the sound is the sweet spot of where we find ourselves between the intricately placed notes of the composer.

And in the case of the Paramount original series ‘Yellowstone,’ it’s composer Brian Tyler who has created a theme song as unique as the famed western escape.

For me, the ‘Yellowstone’ theme song draws me in by the past of Yellowstone yet I remain for the prospect of exploring a place like Prospector, Utah in the future.

‘Maniac’ Looks Superbad

A brand new Netflix series titled ‘Maniac’ looks superbad in a good way.

With a cast led by ‘Superbad’ co-stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, along with Sally Field and Justin Theroux, ‘Maniac’ looks like an entertaining mind trip. Escaping into this show appears oddly comforting as a creative yet twisted cognitive wonderland.

Haven’t we all said sang, “I’m a maniac, maniac I sure know” to ourselves?

‘Maniac’ premieres September 21 on Netflix.
