Goodbye Twitter

RIP Twitter, you never really did figure yourself out.  Today’s “Deactivate Twitter Day“, and it’s pretty easy for me to make the decision to abandon the platform for multiple reasons. In order of importance: I don’t use it any more for direct communication or to keep up with friends. There was a time that I would actively watch for updates from friends and family on twitter, or even maybe an interesting celebrity or two.  No one uses it to tell me about the tacos they’re eating or the experiences they had at local coffee shops, or even really to take...

I still found it hilarious and reminds me of when I was working as a sandwich artist.

Star Trek: The Next Generation DVD Complete Set for only $35 from Facebook Marketplace!

  Several months ago I was the proud recipient of the entire TNG series on VHS tape, then I found this online for only $35, and now I’m currently watching some of the special features on the DVDs, as I still haven’t worked up the nerve to watch the VHS tapes. I think I’m going to keep an eye open for the different types of media Trek has been on, it seems they’re going pretty cheap now.  I think back in the day I would have spent $100+ per season, and even today this set is going for $75, so...

Spider-man 2.1

Spider-Man 2.1 features eight minutes of new footage incorporated into the movie, including a longer, less-adversarial conversation between Harry and Peter at the birthday party, more from comedian Hal Sparks in the elevator scene, more fighting with Doc Ock, and a goofy appearance by J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man costume. While the new scenes are interesting to watch and add some laughs, they don’t justify a second purchase of the movie. The bonus features are new but underwhelming. The commentary track by producer Laura Ziskin and screenwriter Alvin Sargent (there were two different commentaries on the original two-disc Spider-Man...

Deadmau5: Live @ Earl’s Court

This musical release from progressive house producer Deadmau5 captures a live performance by the artist, recorded at Earl’s Court. Some tracks featured in the concert include Reward is Cheese, Sofi Needs a Ladder, and Raise Your Weapon. It was a dollar on amazon.com and I enjoy his music, this was a fun concert to hear and watch.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight

It’s Batman vs. Jack the Ripper in an Elseworld’s adventure that imagines the Dark Knight over a hundred years ago in a turn-of-the-century Gotham. I liked this story much better when it was a comic book, there was definitely something lost in the translation from page to film.

The Eraser

An elite federal marshal known as the “Eraser” who guarantees the safety of valuable informers by erasing their identities, relocating them and protecting them from exposure. Vanessa Williams has great eyes and both she and Arnold Schwarzenegger were great in a movie that’s about as 90’s as you can possibly get, with all the shoulder pads and “high tech weapons”, with just a dash of 80’s arming up montage to make you remember just who Arnold really is.
