Welcome to the White House Mr. President Biden and Vice President Harris.

God, it feels good today to have a competent team carrying the flag of America forward.

Cobra Kai (Season 3 - 2021)
5 Stars out of 5


Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcDQqGJG8pA

Just got finished watching Season 3 and it exceeded my expectations. Not sure why it exceeded as I'm already a huge fan of the series and the first two seasons delivered in spades. I guess maybe I was expecting a drop off of sorts. There wasn't one at all. I do think that the fan-service cameos went a long way to elevate this season for me though. It was fantastic to see Tamlyn Tomita as Kumiko, Yuji Okumoto as Chozen Toguchi  and of course Elisabeth Shue as Ali Mills all returning. I literally could not stop smiling whenever any of the 3 were on screen. Tamlyn and Elisabeth still look amazing all these years later and Yuji was funny as f*ck in his cameo.

But all of them just reminded me why I love The Karate Kid series as much as I do. So what about the other half of the cast? They delivered too. That's the thing about Cobra Kai the Series. Every story line that is put forth to us is interesting and keeps you engaged, no matter how small a role may be. But lets jump to the Season Finale. That fight between Johnny and Kreese is a fight any fan of the movies has been waiting for. All it took was 35 years to get to and it more than delivered. Having Daniel get into the mix to save Johnny was a real crowd-pleasing moment. Loved it! As for the cliffhanger, it's obvious who Kreese is calling: Terry Silver. I was hopeful that he and Mike Barnes would show up last season. So, it's safe to say that Silver will be in Season 4. Jury is still out on Barnes being involved.

As for Shue...I really hope she comes back. But I don't think it's gonna happen given how her episode wrapped up. Never really thought she would be full time returning character. She really wouldn't have much to do moving forward. But damn, was it ever good to see her back as Ali.

Adolf got impeached today....again. Regarding delaying the Trial until Biden takes over has me thinking that its to keep Adolf in check in this final week. Yeah, like that's ever going to happen. But I do think it's to keep him from doing anymore damage because now he has to know that if he says or does ANYTHING to create more chaos, the spineless and feckless GOP Senate members will be more than free to convict him as retribution. But when the Trial actually starts, I think they are going to convict him no matter what, just so that they can take a vote to keep him from ever holding elected office ever again.....thus terminating his proposed 2024 run, which was never going to happen anyway. He would never run that kind of risk at being a loser....again, when no one votes for his fat, white, wrinkley, sagging a**, covered in the sh*t that his depends holds in place for him.

The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai REUNITED APART

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYwPHqKvdJM

This was fantastic! Damn, they got pretty much EVERYONE in on this, even the elusive Elisabeth Shue. I think with her doing this, the likelihood that she ends up doing Cobra Kai is more and more of a reality *knock on wood*. The only person not in the reunion is Hilary Swank and wasn't expecting it to happen anyway. It would have been cool for sure, but it doesn't make this reunion any less. Loved the tribute they did for Pat Morita. Be sure to stick around for the post-credit bonus scene.

OMG!

Just got finished watching the Season Finale of Season 2 and the final 10 minutes literally had be breathless. By now EVERYONE has heard that Mark Hamill returns as Luke Skywalker, via De-Aging FX and it left me grinning ear to ear. Having Artoo pop in was the icing on the cake! This moment was, is and will forever be the greatest Star Wars moment since the King of all Star Wars Moments (Luke saving Darth Vader and completing his redemption from Return of the Jedi). Mando taking off his helmet to say goodbye to Grogu left me with tears in my eyes. THIS series and particularly this season has been what I have been wanting and craving since ROTJ came to end. Two trilogies later and it still hadn't given me what I wanted.....until now. I'm a happy boy right now.

As for the rest of Season 2.....AMAZING! So much happening, but up till the Finale, my money on best episode ever was The Jedi, which FINALLY gave us Ahsoka Tano as played by  Rosario Dawson, who was born to play her. She is pitch perfect in the role. I can't wait for her series to drop. And the other BIG news for this season was also the return of the once-thought-killed-off-in-the-dumbest-way-possible category: Boba Fett! F*ck!!!!!! How do you end this Season Finale? Why, you have him go back to Jabba's Palace and assume the throne as his own! Perfect! Can't wait for his series to drop either!

So, what becomes of The Mandalorian? I really don't know where they go now. His entire story arc was driven by protecting and getting Grogu back to his kind and now that Grogu has gone off with Luke, that story is a wrap as far as I can see it. I thought maybe when Ahsoka name-dropped Grand Admiral Thrawn (another WTF moment for me!!!!), I figured that would keep Mando busy with another arc. But with Ahsoka getting her own series, I don't see Thrawn dropping in on The Mandalorian. So much to talk about. But I'm still processing this all in. But man, did Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni deliever!

Mind is going to places I didn't think possible, namely tying up loose ends of Star Wars Rebels. If you haven't seen or watched this series yet....sucks to be you! Look, go watch it. It's absolutely vital that you do because I think we are about to get Ezra Bridger and Sabine Wren into the mix given how Ahsoka and Sabine went off to search for Ezra in the final shot of Rebels, who himself has his own connection to Thrawn. You see why my mind is literally crammed full of goodness?

So yeah.....today just happened!

The Interview with Paul dropped this morning and it was fascinating to hear. And then just now, Paul performing Live showing exactly what he was talking about earlier is just dope as f*ck. Be sure to watch both videos. Well worth it.

John Lennon album sales at Tower Records December 1980

This just dropped few minutes ago. Always cool to see archive footage of Tower Records. Just sucks it has to be related to John Lennon's passing back in the day.
