Michael Connelly has done it again, with his hit novel "The Night Fire." A decades old murder, with the suspect still on the street.

A murder-book hidden away for decades brought to light by the widow of the cop who … Continue reading Book review: The Night Fire by Michael Connelly.

Oops…

Movie Review: “Bad Boys for Life” (No spoilers)

"Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whacha gonna do, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?" The "Bad Boys" are back, in a fairly solid movie.

It's especially bad when they come over a … Continue reading Movie Review: “Bad Boys for Life” (No spoilers)

Checking out the Marvel Exhibition in Edmonton

Today has been a wild day. Up early, though I did sleep in somewhat. I decided to forgo the workout today as my right thigh has been bugging me. It's like I've got a perpetual Charlie horse in it.
