Ad Astra

#AdAstra


Best Nolan-ish Kubrick Homage, Ever! Very deliberate, deliberative, thinking-man's* sci-fi, stunningly crafted by top-notch tech team. G*d bless #JamesGray & his unique auteur-ial ambition for trying his best. *Man-childs, all they(weπŸ˜‡?) need is a hug from Daddy, no?😏

The Steelers’ Mason Rudolph Era Gets Off to a Bumpy Start

I guess #MasonRudolph era didn't quite start the way we hoped, but more worryingly it's not just a transition year, but quite possibly the end of an era πŸ₯Ί


Sigh, those halcyon #KillerBs days sure went by quick, huh? 😫


PS. Help us #ChrisBoswell, you're our only hope!

RIP Ric Ocasek

RIP #RicOcasek


Oh no, I loved the guy, and #TheCars, so sad. Growing up I only knew about Drive thanks to my father, but when I finally started listening to *all* the music…so much perfect pop melodies making so much deceptively melancholy lyrics go down so easy. Sigh...

Antonio Brown and the "Patriot Way"

So, #Patriots "bench" #AB from starting lineup, forcefeed him entire first drive, get him improbable TD, then *pile* on the points...w/o him. Oh yeah,  no media avail.


That's the #PatriotWay, it's not enough to win, they have rub your nose in it & make sure we *all* lose...

RIP Eddie Money

RIP #EddieMoney


Before I even knew anything about blue-eyed soul, or anything about music (that hasn't changed), I knew I loved  his hit songs that traveled all the way to us. By all accounts he was a nice guy who made the most of it. Pretty rock n' roll if you ask me.

RIP Mardik Martin

RIP #MardikMartin


Great screenwriter behind such immortal films as #MeanStreets, #RagingBull, #TheLastWaltz. etc. Also, I'm lucky enough to say, my teacher for a time. Such an honour; his lessons still reverberate to this day, his movies will reverberate for a lifetime.

RIP Abdul Qadir

RIP #AbdulQadir


So sad, I loved watching him growing up.  Not only one of the all-time great spinners, an exciting, fun, supremely charismatic cricketer who as an absolute joy to watch. A genius who shall never be forgotten as long as there's cricket being played somewhere.

PS. Massive congratulations to #AFG on first Test win! 


Great bounceback after slightly deflating #CWC19. Throughly deserved win over #BAN.


Not only is their emergence a great #cricket story, it has to be one of the greatest feel-good sports stories, ever!

PS. Bad luck for #ENG, fought valiantly, but eventually surrendered to the inevitable...

This #SteveSmith is the only Steve Smith I'm not a fan of, but hats off to the chap. He's gotta be a shoo-in for Athlete of the Year. 😏

Nadal Squeaks by a Heroic Medvedev to Win the 2019 US Open

PS. Congrats to #Nadal on #USOpen win, dude's an absolute *beast*!


Gott say, though, like #CocoGauff & #Andreescu on the women's side, #Medvedev stole the whole show on the men's side...

Steelers Get Thrashed by the Patriots

The, cough, "fait accompli" that magically landed #AB in the #Patriots' lap proves that while the rest of the #NFL's playing checkers, NE's playing 3-D shadiness. That's the true #PatriotWay


Chin up, #Steelers, it's only Week 1 and the Sun'll come up tomorrowπŸ€—

It: Chapter Two

#ItChapterTwo


Good, clean sequelised fun. The adult Losers Club are very good, with Hader & esp Ransone stealing the show. Standing O to (another?!πŸ˜πŸ‘)Skarsgard, coming this close to matching #TimCurry in an inspired Toby-Jones approved performance. Muschietti has great craft.

Nice stats piled up by #IND in recent Test series vs plucky #WIndies. #Virat winningest captain (so young!), #Jadeja's batting(?!), #Vihari's emergence, #Rahane's re-emergence.
