What I Learned This Week: #21

Sunday, October 8 – Saturday, October 14   This Week in Movies: I saw Bladerunner 2019, a brooding, overlong, very pretty, unevenly-scored sequel. The replicants in this version search for meaning and humanity as they travel in densely packed consumer zones, sparse forgotten places where life is apparently more real, and sparsely decorated corporate officesContinue reading “What I Learned This Week: #21”

What I Learned This Week: 20

Sunday, October 1 – Saturday, October 7   This Week Underground: This week started underneath Cincinnati on American Legacy Tours’ Underground Tour benefiting the Cat Adoption Team.

 Sunday, August  27  – Saturday, September 2   This Week In Living in the Thick of Things: All summer the call of social life from living downtown has been strong.

Sunday, August 20 – Saturday, August 26:   This week in Totality (a.k.a. the Eclipse): The work week started with a black hole of productivity on Monday afternoon as Cincinnati experienced a partial eclipse of the sun. Plenty of my space nerd friends traveled into Kentucky and Tennessee to experience totality. The rest of usContinue reading “What I Learned this Week: #15”
