Salsa Cookie!

I will always remember this song from Excalibur. Now I will also always think of salsa cookies.

Netflix Diversity

I wondered how they handled the different people in a household using the same Netflix account:
"Take as a first example the Top 10 row: this is our best guess at the ten titles you are most likely to enjoy. Of course, when we say “you”, we really mean everyone in your household. It is important to keep in mind that Netflix’ personalization is intended to handle a household that is likely to have different people with different tastes. That is why when you see your Top10, you are likely to discover items for dad, mom, the kids, or the whole family. Even for a single person household we want to appeal to your range of interests and moods. To achieve this, in many parts of our system we are not only optimizing for accuracy, but also for diversity."

The Hunger Games Movie

Another Harry Potter type story... I'm a little iffy on the selection of actors, but I want to see it anyway.

Ender's Game the Movie

Having Han Solo in the movie is great, but I'm just happy it is being made. I liked these books better than Harry Potter. It is a bit of Harry Potter in space for those that are unfamiliar with the series.

While the rest of the world is going to see Captain America, Captain America, Captain America, and even Cowboys and Aliens, I went to see a horror movie about the fearsome Backson.

Owl: It's a Giant creature with a tail
Here I'll draw Piglet in for scale
His hide is like a shaggy rug
His face a surely ugly mug
With two sharp horns atop his head
In between a mop of hair that's red
And in his nose a ring of gold
It smells of monkey's feet and mold
Its toes are black
Its fur is blue
I swear that all I tell you is not made up
The Backson!
All: The Backson!
Owl: The Backson!
All: The Backson

My two and a half year old loved it and I thought it was pretty entertaining, too. There were several clever word plays that made me laugh. The closing credits were really cool, too.

Helmet Cam Videos

There are those who doubt that live video from helmet cams was transmitted back to the situation room during the raid that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. I say if the the Colonial Marines had access to helmet cam technology, then Seal Team Six would have as well.

Colbert on Atlas Shrugged Part 1

I had not seen the Rotten Tomatoes rating - currently at 13%. I will admit it was not the best film I had ever seen, but I think this rating represents more than people's views of the actual movie.

Movie Created Gun Myths

No wonder the liberal media is afraid of guns... I'd be afraid of guns that have "clips" that hold hundreds, nay thousands of bullets that can be absolutely silent or cause huge explosions, too.

Navy Seals - Winning.

After I heard that Navy Seals were involved in the operation to kill Osama bin Laden, I kept thinking about the movie. It is not a great movie, but definitely fits in my guilty pleasure category. I actually own it - I think I got a two disc set with Red Dawn for about $5 at Wally World. Winning squared.
