Jem and the Holograms… THE MOVIE

You read that right! Director Jon M. Chu along with producer Jason Blum is heading up the new movie and will be doing their best to stay true to the original 80s hit!

First, a Jem primer, because what little people seem to remember of the show is a gaggling girl-band cartoon rendered in infrared pastels, with an emphasis on “glamour and glitter, fashion and fame,” as the show’s theme song goes—Barbie on acid, for short. But just beneath that surface is a third-wave feminist, science-fiction high-fashion narrative that serves up a “play nice” moral through a glamorous battle of the bands.

I've been jealous of your looks since the 4th grade

Director of Monster University, Dan Scanlon, addresses the continuity problem in the origins of the friendship between Mike and Sully And comes up with a rather brilliant idea. I like it.

So yeah, now we joke that that’s just an old monster expression, you’ve been jealous of my good looks since the fourth grade. That’s what monsters always say to each other. So, uh, so luckily I feel like when you watch the movies together, the spirit of it still works great.

Hario V60 Day 1

After acquiring the essential tools over the past week, I was able to produce a great cup of coffee; first for my mother-in-law and then myself. What a difference this method makes! I'll post pictures of my setup in later this week.

I couldn't' have made a better video than these guys but I will try in the future. For now, check these guys out!

Norah Jones Sings "Everybody Needs Best Friend"

A beautiful performance by Norah Jones. This song, "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" features music by Walter Murphy and lyrics by Seth MacFarlane from the movie TED. It was easily one of my favorite movies of 2012 and if you haven't seen it, it's out on DVD & Blu-Ray.

Unfortunately, NBC still chooses to use Adobe Flash for their video offerings, so if you're using Safari, just open up Chrome and use the built in player.
