Our 100th episode! What the heck?! And this week, we discuss The Shining in all its Jack Nicholson glory!!!

MOTD Shining 100

How have we not discussed this film yet? It is the definitive horror film. The book it is based on is also a definitive horror book. Love both the movie and the book, but if I had to pick, I’d have to say the book is the better of the two. Love it.

Time to float… again. Are you ready? IT Chapter 2 is almost here! Doll House goes on sale for U.S and U.K friends, Off The Grid’s first pre-release review, and you guessed it… Ancient Rome!

That is a long title to this blog. But at least it is accurate.

Here are some pics to get you pumped for the September 6th, 2019 release!! Ya-ya!

IT 2

The Losers Club all grown up…

Pennywise and Paul Bunyan… oh yeah!



Be sure to use the washroom just before you go in and sit down. The movie has a reported running time of 2 hours and 49 minutes. Close to 3 hours of awesomeness! You don’t want to miss anything because of a whining bladder, right?

I can’t wait to see what they do this time. I was a huge fan of the first film. I thought they did a great job of fitting into the film the essence of the 1200 page novel by Stephen King. So, yeah. I’ll be there. And you should be, too.

Off The Grid’s first pre-release review: Goodreads Review

Ancient Rome

The Emperor Nero became the emperor of Rome in the year 54 A.D. He was seventeen years old.

Do you remember when you were seventeen? I barely managed high school. I thought nobody understood me, and that my parents and teachers were out to get me (not really, but you get my meaning).


This is an interesting piece of history though. So, the story goes that Emperor Claudius, for political reasons, married Agrippina the younger who happened to be his niece. Even by Ancient Rome standards, this was frowned upon. Upon marrying Claudius, Agrippina had her son, Nero adopted by Claudius so he would be heir to the Imperial throne. Claudius did so, and put his own son, Brittanicus, behind Nero for the throne.

Once Nero was named heir, someone poisoned Claudius (even though Ancient Rome was a misogynistic society and blamed most untimely deaths upon an ambitious woman without proof, even modern historians believe Agrippina had poisoned Claudius).

Agrippina wanted to rule the Empire through her son. What she seemed to have forgotten was that no teenager likes being told what to do; especially by their mother. This teenager happened to be the ruler of most of the Western World. So, after some time and two bungled attempts, he had his mother murdered.

And that, my friends, is only a small portion of the Emperor Nero saga. Ancient Rome. Awesome.

Have a great week! Be kind to everyone!
