Where do bookstores go from here?

B & N is laying off hundreds of employees to try and stave off losses.  However, as this article points out, more than at a lot of other retail companies, the employees are an integral part of a bookstore’s success.  Is this the end of the mass market book chain store?  Will we be left with just independents and online?

The modelwife got me to watch this Netflix show.  It is very good.  Extremely well acted.  Jason Bateman is a very good actor.  Warning, it is violent and there are some very uncomfortable scenes, but it is worth watching.

Military deployed to fight crime in Montego Bay

The Jamaican Defense Forces (the equivalent of the Jamaican Army) have been deployed to the resort town of Montego Bay and the surrounding St. James parish.  This is an effort to reduce crime, especially murders, that have spiked in the parish over the last year.  While crime has always been a problem in the southern part of the island, the tourist area in the northern half has typically been very safe.

This is a sad development sure to hurt the tourist trade that the island depends on.  Story here.

Travelers TV show

I recently found this Netflix show due to a friend’s post on Facebook.  Normally I am not a fan of time travel themed books, movies or TV shows.  However, Travelers is pretty well done and the acting is very good.  I recommend it.

One of my goals for 2018 is to have at least one post every day in 2018.  However, I missed yesterday.  I thought I had posted one or had one scheduled to post.  I will try to not let it happen again.

Movie review: Suicide Squad (2016)

I’d wanted to see this in the theatre.  Unfortunately with two small kids, that just wasn’t possible, and boy am I glad it wasn’t.  I’d be so pissed if I’d paid $12 for a ticket to see this unholy mess.  In fact I’m mad that I paid $3.99 for the DVD at Walmart.  This movie isn’t just so-so.  It is actively bad. It is incoherent.  This was a big budget movie and I just don’t understand how you can spend this kind of money making a movie and coming out with something that doesn’t even make sense.  Avoid at all costs.

My last post…..of 2017

Looking back, 2017 wasn’t my best year, in blogging or generally.

As far as blogging goes, I’ve been posting for 8 1/2 years.  This year I cut back on posts.  That caused the number of visitors to drop.

I am going to try and make a lot of changes for 2018.  In addition to at least one post a day, I also and going to try and go back over the last 8 1/2 years and read all my old posts.  I suspect this will be disappointing, but I need to look at the past to improve the future.

I hope you will all join me on this journey. #mementomori
