I’m back and things are going to look a little different!!!
Hello to all the people who still follow me and are not bots. It has been a long long time since I posted and so many things have changed.
*My kids have gotten so big and are entering new phases in school.
*My wife and I are coming up on our 16 year anniversary.
*We bought our first house and got out of the apartment before the pandemic hit.
*Oh yeah, the world split due to a deadly virus. (I’m not getting into that discussion).
*Thanks to Twitter and a show on the Shudder network called “The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs” I met some of the most amazing and talented people ever who share my same warped love of horror.
*Most importantly, the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history, and I was at Enterprise Center watching it on the big screen with a packed house of screaming fans.
I was originally thinking about putting all the different things my life has become and why my blog is changing, but that is going to be way to long for one post. So let’s focus on what’s next.
The biggest change is going to be the name of this blog. It will no longer be Brunner’s Bookshelf. My twitter handle will remain the same and so will my Gmail address so I will still be reachable the same way I always have been. I still read but not nearly as much as I used to. This blog is going to be called Brunner’s Bar.
In the last few years I have become more complex and this blog is going to be all of me. You will still find book reviews, but I will also be posting more movie reviews, talking about Horror more and the Mutant Family I have found through @stabbytimetv and a shared love of The Last Drive-In.
I will also be writing about all things St. Louis Blues. I’ve been a Hockey fan since I was a kid and I have always been a huge dedicated fan of the Blues no matter what. I’m excited to have an outlet to share my thoughts and feelings about this team that I love so much.
Finally, the last thing you will be seeing on my posts are reviews of Spirits. I don’t mean Casper the friendly ghost, but Whiskey, Bourbon, Gin etc. I used to review beers on Untappd and as I have gotten older I have found a love for all things in an Oak Barrel. I have found some great websites that have taught me a lot about this. I also have started to try my hand at amateur mixology. I’m going to share my thoughts on all the good affordable stuff to even joy a relaxing night at home.
Stay tuned. More to come and I hope that you join me for the new blog. I hope these new posts spark all kinds of great conversation. So step up to the bar and let’s chat.
