Hereditary! Toni Collette, as always, kills it! Oh yeah, some Ancient Rome edification.


Normally, the movies we talk about on the podcast are films that I had seen before. Not this one. This was the first time seeing this beauty. And all I can say is… wow!

Listen to us geek out here:

Ancient Rome

This interesting little fact is something I read over and over in different books, fiction, and non-fiction.

Romans ate their meals lying down. I know you’ve seen in those movies set in the past where people were lounging while slaves fed them grapes around a pool filled with floating flower petals. Now that did happen, so I wouldn’t say it was historically inaccurate but I will say it wasn’t a common occurrence. The lying down part was common. Lying down on your side and eating food was how they ate back then.

I couldn’t imagine leaning on an elbow and shoveling food in my mouth. Wouldn’t your arm fall asleep? Makes my neck hurt thinking about it.

This habit was so ingrained that Cato, a senator protesting some decision or inaction in the Senate, decided that he would eat all his meals seated on a chair and at a table. That was his protest! Love this stuff.

Discussing The Lost Boys, my books are at the local library (Guelph), a 50km race medal pic, and the next story I’ll be deconstructing will be 2 B R O 2 B by Kurt Vonnegut!


Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Jason Patric, Kieffer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest, the guy from Bill & Ted’s (not Keanu) that no one seems to remember (Alex Winter) and mean, murderous creatures of the night! What’s not to love about this movie? Listen in as we discuss it here: Movies of the Damned!!

Library coolness:

So, my local library ordered my books and they are now part of the Guelph Public Library’s collection. I’m pretty hyped. Like really hyped. Thanks, GPL!

Quick 50km race pics:

On June 15th, 2019, I ran the Niagara Ultra Marathon, a 50km race from Niagara on the Lake to Niagara Falls and back. It was far. I was tired.

I do like the medal…50km run worthy? Meh…


Great Story and What I Learned from it will be…
