RIP Rutger Hauer

 Few actors have inspired me as much as Rutger Hauer. Blade Runner, The Blood of Heroes, and Ladyhawk were just the beginning. I own so many of his movies I can't even count them off in my head. I may have to watch Hobo with a Shotgun again tonight. Or maybe Split Second, where he drank a lot of coffee....

 RIP, sir. Thanks for all the entertainment and inspiration you have brought into my life.

What are you Watching?

This week I have been watching STRANGER THINGS on Netflix.

I love this show.

I don't know how I managed but I have restricted myself to only one episode a day. The other two seasons I sucked them down in a single day.

I actually think Season 3 is the best of all.

--No Spoilers. Just go watch it!
