Tom’s Triumphs – They Call it Fishing, Not Catching

One of my favorite things in the world is boating. I love being on the water. I love feeling the wind and the waves as we zip from place to place, and the freedom and adventure that come along with it.

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to share that joy with my daughter for the first time. My little flower did great, she explored the boat, threw some sticks in the water an continually crabbed about how bulky her little life jacket is.

Avengers: Endgame Review

Just a touch under under 11 years ago, Iron Man started Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel down a path to this (inevitable) conclusion. The movie effectively closes the doors to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, while setting the stage for a host of future adventures.

Tom’s Triumphs – Overcoming a Crappy Month

For most of my life, I’ve had a fear/general distaste about using public restrooms to drop a deuce. I mean, sometimes it’s unavoidable, but if there is any foreseeable way for me to capture home field advantage, I am capable of holding my bowels for long periods of time. My dad and brother will probably never let go of the fact that I once drove 20 minutes to a casino for a bathroom break when we were ice fishing.

Review: Venom

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 8.25

What do you get when you pair an alien parasite with a blackballed investigative reporter and strip away the title character’s traditional backstory and all other trappings of the Marvel universe? A surprisingly fun action film with a couple outstanding performances.
