Sunday Post #300


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Date 
  
So... Sunday Post #300. Hard to believe I've been doing this so long. A big thanks to Kimba for hosting this every week- and thanks also to everyone who stops by every Sunday to say hi. I feel like I've made friends through the Sunday Post and that's pretty special. Okay- so this week I finished Westworld S2 and binged The Society. Anyone watching that on Netflix? I really like the show, but so many questions... it did get me thinking though- what would have happened if my high school class had gotten, you know, stranded with no parentals (or anyone else) around?

Other than that- not a lot of reading. It was a short week though. I did a Movies That Suck to celebrate the new Godzilla movie-  Monday I'll be returning to my Song Lyrics posts- and I might get a review out for After The Lights as well.

Here's the (by now) usual Sea of Thieves- absolutely hilarious at the 23 min mark when a kraken attacks!

  1. Oh man, in my SoT game play I still have yet to encounter the kraken. Though my friend did one time, and they had a whole hull full of treasure when the thing attacked and killed them all, causing them to lose everything! I mean, it's funny now and we all laugh about it, but I imagine at the time it was pretty intense/frustrating, haha!

    1. It looks awesome! And I couldn't help but laugh when they freaked out :)

  2. SpaceAmbient is quickly becoming my go-to channel on youtube. Thanks for introducing it to me.

    Also, I have to ask. Why do you post these on Saturday (or Friday I guess?) but call them Sunday Posts? At first I thought it had to do with the whole time difference thing, but then upon reflection realized that just can't be. So I'm curious :-)

    1. Oh cool. I like a lot of the music they upload.

      And... that's a good question lol. I used to post them just on Sundays but then decided they would be my weekly wrap up post... I just haven't ever, um, renamed the feature. :)

  3. I did a bit of reading but most of my focus has been a rewatch of Game of Thrones as it has left a hole in my life and I'm not ready to walk away!!!

  4. Hooray for your 300th Sunday Post! That's pretty awesome. :) The only TV I watched this week were the two Stanley Cup playoff games. Now that GoT is done,and once the playoffs are over, I'll go back to rarely ever turning the TV on.

    1. Thanks! Hard to believe! And oh my gosh I'm so behind... I couldn't even tell you who's in the playoffs (ack)!!

  5. Hard to believe it's already June! I've been listening to lots of music, and catching up on my reading. Should be finished the Malta Exchange by Steve Berry, which is a historical/fictional thriller that brings on many questions and lots of excitement. Major kudos on the 300th Sunday Post, Gorgeous Greg! You've sure been busy. I'm glad I found your blog, and so happy that you're feeling healthy. I'm always concerned about that, even though you don't talk about it these days. Lots of new YA romances on Netflix I'll be checking out too. Weird that I watch YA but don't read it much.(lol) Happy weekend! RO

    1. Thanks rockin Ro! And I'm glad too- and likewise! I've been pretty well, and I've thought about sharing more, but just... haven't. Maybe soon. I appreciate your thoughts though- they mean a lot! :)

      Health is a funny thing and some days are better than others, but by and large I'm trying to be healthy? Adjusting to veganism is a challenge but I'm on it.

      Happy reads!

  7. That's pretty cool that you've consistently done The Sunday Post for so long. I get bored easily and I always want to shake things up, but I do love this meme even if I don't do it that often.

  10. I love Westworld!!!

    I'm a couple episodes in to The Society and so far I am enjoying it.

    Congrats on your 300th Friday Sunday Post. LOL

  11. I appreciate your willingness to share each week, it takes a certain amount of commitment. Without feeling like I am obligated to anyone, sitting at the computer takes a toll on my back so sorry that I haven't commented in a while. I do not wish to get a laptop or cellphone either. I love the gif of Anne Bonny of Black Sails. I watched the show because of Zach McGowan who plays Charles Vane but I don't have Stars and HBO+Crave subscription anymore since Game of Thrones ended. I hope I can get it either from Youtube or Netflix perhaps? So sad. I like those pirates maytee Growr. Captain Flint is growing on me and might even surpass Charles Vane in handsome and debonnaire. Haha!

    1. I hear you- I blog pretty much on my computer too. And Black sails was awesome. I hope you get a chance to finish watching it soon. I'd like to see more shows like that.

  12. I cannot believe you have written 300 Sunday posts. Wow! I really feel out of the loop when everyone talks about TV. I watch so little.

    1. I can't believe it either! Although my earliest ones were pretty... humble. :)

  13. Happy 300 Posts! That is awesome! I never kept track of how many I had.
    I love the Let's Play video and the Kraken was hilarious. They are so funny! I love how they keep in character. I have been watching the Five Nights at Freddy's VR gamer videos. So funny to watch them play with the VR.

    I hope you have a fantastic week Greg! Happy Reading! :)

    1. Westworld is so twisty. I finished S2 and there's multiple timelines going, so I had to read articles afterward to figure it all outs!

  15. I saw the preview thing for The Society, but I'm wary of shows that bring up lots of questions without many answers, ever since Lost lol. But now I do wonder what a bunch of high schoolers would do! I like that 1972 picture.

    1. Well... society is kinda like that. Although I need more people to watch it haha so I can talk theories with 'em. :)

  16. I am curious about The Society. I am glad to hear you are enjoying it! After the Lights Go Out looks good. I like the cover. I am looking forward to a quiet Sunday after such a busy week. If I could get away with staying in my pajamas all day, I would. :-) I hope you have a great week, Greg.

  19. 600 Sunday Posts?! That's amazing.

    I haven't watched The Society. I'm still on the fence about it but may give it a go this summer... I'm always looking for bingeables. :)

  20. I have heard so many bad reviews on the Godzilla, so I am looking forward for you to say that it sucked too. I am yet to watch Society, sometime soon. I hope you have a great week ahead.

  21. Congratulations on your 300th post on Sunday Post. It's a great meme to share blogs, I think. I've loved meeting lots of new-to-me people.

    Have a lovely week!

  22. Congratulations on your 300th Sunday Post - you're right - that's a looong time:)). Once more, many thanks for the pics - though this week it was the pulp cover that caught my attention - what a coincidence that she happened to hide out in his apartment wearing nothing but a pyjama top... Have a great week, Greg.

  26. Wow post 300! That's really awesome. I want to watch Westworld. I'm thinking of making it my summer show. I hadn't heard of The Society, but let me check it out!
    Have a good week, Greg!

  28. 300 posts! Quite the accomplishment.

    I should do better at keeping track of these things on my own blog but I don't lol

  29. 300 posts is about 6 years or so. I've been blogging almost that long but not doing the Sunday post. I mostly read and listen to audiobooks. There are tv and movies which interest me but they are lower priority than books so i just never get to them. I have Netflix but my daughter uses it. I'm listening to Limited Wish right now and enjoying this series. It's a bit different and I like that.

  30. My high school would have broken off into factions, and we probably would have existed like the characters in Divergent (hopefully with a better ending). There was a very clear social structure at my high school, and I don't think we would have survived very long without adults, haha. Although, this also makes me think of The 100 and what they accomplished together after landing on Earth.

  33. The Society seems very similar to Netflix’s Between, did you watch that too?

    Have a great reading week, and congrats on your 300th Sunday post!

  34. I missed The Society ... another one to add to my list. We didn't make it through season 2 of Westworld, maybe I should try again. Post-apocalyptic fisherman = gives you something to think about.

  35. I think I came to you through your Sunday Post. You may have even highlighted one of my book covers once. I enjoy coming back here every week and seeing what you're up to! Westworld was really good. I'm looking forward to Season 3.

  37. I think my high school class would have gone Lord of the Flies real fast if left to our own devices. I haven't watched The Society but you've gotten me curious. Hope you're having a great week!

  39. The Society is a show I want to get to too!! It sounds really intriguing and I think a lot of people have questions after watching it.
