    I tried watching My 600-Pound Life, but I cannot deal with that show. Those people gets on my last nerve. How do you allow yourself to get that big? But then I have to remind myself, that I have not "walked in their shoes" so maybe I am being a bit judgmental..

    I thought it was lame. Not nearly as good as the Missing series. Plenty of action but the Tom Hollander and Europol character drove me nuts. I heard that the Dutch characters were actually speaking Flemish. Sort of like New Yorkers with a Canadian accent??

    Or Botched. I get the heebie-jeebies if I pause there on my surfing travels.

    One of the most sacred musical places in the baby boomer bible sits just above the Sunset Strip in the once-ramshackle Laurel Canyon neighborhood.

    The era’s own Garden of Eden, the labyrinthine neighborhood became a tangled nest of creativity that housed rising artists including Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Frank Zappa, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Doors, the Mamas & the Papas, the Monkees, Love, the Eagles and dozens of other soon-to-be-famous artists.

    I really enjoyed that show. Some of my most beloved musicians come off as complete flakes, but oh well.

    For those who are interested in True Crime there is another documentary on the UnaBomber on Netflix. "In his own words." An interesting (unknown to me?) twist on who blew the whistle on him. Not the brother.. No spoilers

    Just started watching "Peaky Blinders." However, I'm not watching more than one a night.
