This hilarious family brings me a lot of comfort and joy; Bob’s I love talking to food. Linder instant song. Tina’s obsession with ass. Completely inappropriate behavior of the gene in any situation.

We are grateful for: Hill
When Warner Bros. first announced that it was A Newer version of Hill, My first inclination was to buy the book. And so I did. I found about 30 pages in it, closed it and kept it for several years. Tune’s Concentration made it a great paperweight and all but both It is impossible for me to enter without some context. Of course, I could See The David Lynch movieBut I decided that what I really needed to do was learn how to do it right.
Fast-forward to 2021. I saw a movie by Dennis Villeneuve, I love it, And like many of you, I wanted to know what was next. So I dusted off my copy Hill And immediately Arrakis was transported. I finished that book, I finished the second book and I am currently reading the third. The fantasy of Frank Herbert has become my go-to place to escape in the last few months and although it was literally available to me my whole life, now that I fully discover it it has been a blessing. – Germaine Lucia
We are grateful for: Rick and Morty
Rick and Morty Its Thanksgiving episode (or rather, “Thanksgiving Spectacular”) aired in July, a strange time that works with the show’s disrespectful attitude but also gives Fans are a convenient excuse to revisit the episode — in which the president’s secret pardon plan is turned upside down by horrific human-turkey hybrid riots — or even the whole dang. Fifth season. For an event that often gives the impression of being overhyped and worse, Over-commercialization, Justin Rowland and Dan Harmon’s animated sensations continue to provide clever snacks for Rick, Morty and the rest of the cast, while dreaming of intergalactic and intimate adventure adventures. Not bad for a show that has been aired, albeit sporadically, since 2008. – Cheryl Eddie

And yes, robots Is Very nice. – James Whitbrook
We are grateful for: Modern Pokemon cards
Something that almost didn’t get enough attention in the ongoing coverage Pokemon trading card gameOf The renewed popularity is how much the recent sets have focused on turning chase cards into a complex small part of the industry. When Pokemon cards first hit the streets in the 90’s, the symbolism of a card’s rarity and whether it is holographic are two big metrics that most people use to determine if a card is valuable. While evaluating cards in this way may be strictly collected ™ and understandable from an economic point of view, it was not one that allowed oneself to perceive the images.
In the last 25 years, as The mechanics of the game Changed and evolved, the cards also took on new forms that placed less emphasis on the text and more emphasis on the dynamic scene of the monsters featuring them. There’s definitely something thrilling about tearing into a packet of cards and capturing a full-blown image by peeking out of a pile of cardboard. It’s not just that there’s a rare card inside, but most of the time, these cards depict scenes that evoke the idea of stumbling into a wild great, unexpected creature and become so stunned that all you can do is stare at it. This is a great way to translate an element Pokemon A physical medium videogame experience, and a good idea that tHe was at the Pokemon Company in recent years. – Charles Pulium-Moore
