If you think the title of The Men Who Stare at Goats is confusing, just wait'll you see the movie. Don't get me wrong, I love quirky. I celebrate quirky. I have quirky in my DVD library and on my Netflix Instant Queue. But this movie commits the one unpardonable sin of quirky: "Thy Shall Not Be Boring".
Now, thanks to science we can easily decide if that piece of cheese you dropped on the floor is really still edible.
All I can say is that I can't wait for the IPhone App.
Toyota's been having a HELL of a time with this recall business.
First, it's a floor mat that needs adjusting, and then a gas pedal, pretty soon you've got engineers from NASA involved. The next thing you know Congress is calling up Mr. freakin' Toyoda (don't ask me why he spells his name with a "D" and not a "T" like his car - maybe it's a cultural thing) to testify before Congress.
Give a guy a break.
So Boomers, you knew it was only a matter of time before a recall notice would find its way to Colleyville. Yep, we got one.
The envelope looked official, but since it wasn't from the IRS I let it marinate on the desk in the laundry room for a couple of days before I opened it. Sure enough, it was a letter from Toyota telling Charlotte to bring in the Lexus for the complimentary repair.
The Photoshop Mobile app for the iPhone is one of the best photo apps I've found.
Here's what the photographer overheard during the photo shoot:
Mom: "Is that a phaser in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
Dad: "Honey, don't you think you should lay off the Moon Pies?"
Little Billy: "Hey Sis, is that Uranus?"
Big Brother Todd: "I'm wearing this to the home school prom!"
I'm a BIG FAN of Big Fan. The film is the directorial debut of screenwriter Robert Siegel (The Wrestler) and it's one that grabs you from the opening scene and keeps you hooked all the way to the WTF ending.
No, it wasn't about ZOMBIES or IRANIAN NUKES (we all know they're at the very top of my WTF list). This was much scarier.
For some insane reason Boomers are "Sexting" each other. This of course, made me shout, ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?
The guy beside me shot me a look like I was going for my Uzi. That of course is when I pretended to have a mild case of Tourette's. STEP AWAY FROM THE CRAZY MAN.
Works every time.
Sexting for the digitally uninitiated is using your cellphone to email naked photos of yourself to someone else. The New York freakin' Times tells me it's all the rage from middle school kids to college students. But, Boomers? C'mon.
Bored with your leftover Easter ham? Give it new life in these easy, sure-to-please subs.
The first thing you should know about Julie & Julia is that it's the movie that made blogging famous. The "Julie" in Julie & Julia is Julie Powell, the legendary blogger who turned her online experience into a best-selling book and Academy Award-nominated movie. She's the patron saint of the blogosphere. Let us now pause and show reverence.
