The skyline has changed so much since 2012 when I first got here. The architectural tour is something you need to do every few years. Excited to see if they ever rename the trump tower. Just a few thoughts from Yale Reardon in Chicago.
Liked it a lot but did not love it. The girl doll without a voice box was easily the weakest villain of the four movies. I did welt up at the end when she found herself a forever home. These movies always hit you in the feels. Yale Reardon gives this 3 stars.
Lion king 2019
I wanted to like this movie but man it did not have the magic as the original Disney. It was aesthetically maybe the best looking movie I can recall. It basically functions as planet earth 3.0. The issue was the animals talking and singing comes out weird. And the celebrity voices were almost too prevalent. Yale Reardon gives this 2 stars.
Wow. This was more of a horror movie than a super hero flick. It was dark and gritty. Joaquin may not win an award for it but he should at least be nominated. This movie stays with you a long time after you leave the theatre. Yale Reardon gives this one 4 thumbs up.
I recently announced on my Facebook the birth of our new son. It was my first post on Facebook where I was not trying to sell something in 8-9 years. The photos got a ton of engagement and as I started using Facebook more over the next couple of days that everyone interacting with the post was 40+
I first heard of him on instagram where he was showing up on @HouseOfHightlights mixtapes but it looked like he was playing against 5″10 private school kids. I considered him a great athlete, but not a skilled player.
5 minutes into his freshman year at Duke I was in awe of his size, movements, jumping ability, and all around feel for the game. I completely had to rethink how we viewed him. Last year at Duke I thought he was a sure fire #1 overall pick but I also questioned how his height and shooting would translate to the NBA.
Then I watched his preseason game vs the Chicago Bulls. He is doing the exact same stuff he did in high school and college! I guess if you’re always the biggest, fastest, and super skilled it translate well to any level. I believe Zion will average 20+ ppg the second he starts his NBA career. Super excited to watch him this season.
The big films of 2019 have been Avengers, lion King, Toy story 4, & Hollywood with Leo/Pitt. More recently and what I just saw today (10/6/19) was JOKER. That was intense wow.
Game of thrones ended in 2019 and had an awful ending. Stranger things season 3 was a fun watch. There are so many things on all the streaming apps it’s becoming next to impossible to keep up.
For the last decade the big names have been Beyoncé, Taylor swift, Eminem, Jay Z, Kanye, John Mayer, Usher, Timberlake, and a couple other names I’m forgetting. More recently Ed Sheeran, Chance the rapper, Niki Minaj, Shawn Mendes have come on the scene. I’d argue that nobody is killing it like Sheeran right now. Easily the top song of 2019 has been Horses in the Back. Right now the #1 song in the world (10/6/19) is Truth Hurts by Lizzo. I think she’s a one but wonder.
Yale Reardon is a massive fan of fall. Tailgates, hot chocolate, and football is an unbeatable combo. There is something special about the crisp air of October with the orchards blooming and the big game going down.
Yale Reardon would say October is the MVP month of the year.
