Odd Thomas Movie Poster

Odd Thomas (Fusion Films)

I loved the book series, but I never watched the 2013 movie. I was afraid too at first. It was a very good book to film adaptation and Dean [Koontz] himself gave it 2 thumbs up!

Sons of Anarchy (FX)

If you haven’t watched it, or even if you have, go back and binge watch it. Seasons 1-5 are on Netflix and if you have [Amazon] Prime you can get season 6 for around $20. With the 7th, and last season, of the show airing on FX now, it is worth staying in on the cold fall nights and watching. Plus, it’s like Hamlet, but [with] bikers!

Ryan Adams/Ryan Adams (Pax AM)

As a whole, the album is amazing. The music and vocals are on point! The Late Show performance was so good that Dave had to hear it twice!

Wild Onions/Twin Peaks (Grand Jury)

A bright future is in store for this young band out of Chicago. If you are a fan of the 60’s style mid-tempo Rock, you are in for a treat!

Metamorden Sounds in County Music/Sturgill Simpson (Loose Records)

If you have been around me  in the last year you have heard me say how Sturgill is the savior of Country Music. The Kentucky native has a voice that belongs in the outlaw age of country. If you like Waylon, then you will love Sturgill!

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda Softworks)

I do this every fall, I pick a video game that I’ve played before and fall in love all over again. It used to be Fable: The Lost Chapter, this year it’s Skyrim. I have told people I am on the Skyrim diet for my brothers wedding. I play, lose track of time and only have enough time to eat one meal. With the never ending quest, DLC and the computer mods, you can play it all fall and winter!
