  • Blockbuster Total Access Changes

    I use (and love) Netflix, but I’ve been following this whole hoopla about the changes that Blockbuster is doing with their Netflix competitor, Total Access.  I’ve also been trying to persuade my office-mate to ditch Blockbuster in favor of Netflix. I think I may have found the solution… Knowzy.com put up an article that outlines…

  • Transformers

    Awesome. Seriously. Go see the [movie](http://www.transformersmovie.com/). Don’t believe me? 4.5 stars at [Netflix](http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Transformers/70058026?trkid=189530&strkid=1972925848_0_0). 8.3/10 at [IMDB](http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0418279/). 84% at [Rotten Tomatoes User Reviews](http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/transformers_the_movie/reviews_users.php). The movie rocks. I wish I had my Transformers toys from when I was a kid.

  • Notes from the morning

    So, since I’ve been up since 4:30am cooking brisket, I wanted to jot down a few notes from the morning. First, there seems to be a racoon living in our backyard. He was drinking from the pond while I was waiting on the BBQ to heat up. Second, there’s nothing on TV at 4:30am on…

  • HGTTG and Current Politics

    Watching TV this week, you can't escape the fallout from Rep. Foley's little escapades with e-mails and instant messaging with Pages on the Hill. Of course, the House Majority Leader is parading about on the news trying to minimize the fallout to the Republican Party. One thing that we've noticed is that Dennis Hastert has…

  • Apple: What are they thinking?

    So, at this morning's Showtime Event Apple unveiled several things, most of which were expected. Notably absent: the rumored full screen video iPod. At any rate, one of the things they announced that people did expect was the ability to download movies from iTunes. Good idea, poor execution. You see, Apple set the price point…

  • We’ve been Netflixed.

    Well, Diann & I signed up for Netflix last night. Drop me an e-mail if you're on it so I can expand my currently non-existant friends list. (Not that I know what the friends list is for, but let's face it: an empty friends list puts a frown on anyone's face.)

  • lonely weekend

    well, Diann's out of town this weekend visiting a friend in Kansas, so it's a boring and lonely weekend for me. On the other hand, I've loaded up the DVD player with all the movies that Diann hates. Looks like a weekend of Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, etc.

  • The Movie Big, Part Two??

    So I'm watching TV waiting on the West Wing to start and an ad comes on for 13 Going On 30 comes on. Isn't this movie the same as Big?
