Netflix has put up a few decent, recent films of late. And once I stop obsessing over The West Wing (just kiss her, Josh!) I’ll get to ’em. For now, I caught Ghost Protocol. Wanna see inside my brain? It’s crazy up in there, but here ya go.
Why no Walking Dead this week? Not saying that I won’t get to it, but the Oscars had me in it’s grip. It’s a sickness.
