Dirk Gently Is Back!!!


Yasss! Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective Agency is finally back! I’ve been waiting for Season 2 on Hulu. I enjoyed the original BritVersion and this reboot is pretty good. Glad I noticed the new episodes today. It was a great break after today’s World Cup Games (still shocked about Messi). I like the quirky humor and the supernatural theme in the episodes. The show also appeals to my morbid sense of humor. Seasons 1 and 2 are now on Hulu, so enjoy. By the time you read this, I will have binge-watched half the episodes.

 

Video: Charging iPhone with 9-Volt Battery

The thrill of “thundersnow” wore off quickly once I lost power this evening. It went off just when Coronation Street’s Pat Phelan was lying to his project manager about Eileen being sick. I heard a boom, and then my Roku shut off. There would be no relaxing with BritBox tonight. Well, now I’ll spend time charging my phone and iPad instead of enjoying television.

Anyway, I figured I’d better do something useful with my phone while it was still charged. That’s when I remembered reading on Twitter about charging your cell phone with a household battery. This was the first video I found, and it looks easy. It uses a 9-volt battery. However, I’m sure there are videos about using other batteries.

Good luck and stay safe.

My New BritBox Favorite: Broken with Sean Bean

I started watching Broken with Sean Bean on BritBoxUS three months ago. I binge-watched the rest of Season 1 after the first episode. Now, I’m waiting patiently for Season 2. (Please tell me there will be a Season 2!)

Bean plays Catholic priest, Father Michael Kerrigan. He struggles to accept his past “missteps” and to be a “good priest. I’ve been a practicing Catholic since April 2016. I’ve also had moments where I’ve struggled with maintaining the message and spirit of the mass homily. I found the show to be refreshing and comforting. Continue reading

Video: St. Wilfrid’s Actually

I know it’s after Christmas, but I had to share this video. Love Actually is my favorite Christmas movie! (Actually, it’s the only Christmas movie that I watch every year.) So, I had to see St. Wilfrid’s versions of the scenes from the movie. They did an awesome job. It definitely put me into the Christmas spirit.

I loved when Kim Hubbard (EastEnders) said…

Mr. Lover Lover…Mmmm…Mr. Lover Lover…

Kim serenading Robbie about his dating profile was hilarious. Continue reading
