Screenslam App

I think I may have mentioned this before, but Charlotte and I loooove movies. There's nothing we like better than kicking back with a bottle of wine and watching TCM or the latest delivery from our Netflix queue. It's a weekend ritual around our house.

Since we're in the biz (or at least on the lunatic fringe) we get our fair share of screeners in advance of their release date. But we also like to know what's out there on the movie horizon - long before it shows up in theaters or our Netflix list. That's why I was pleased to find a new App for iPad that is really dedicated to the movie buff in all of us: Screenslam.


Specifically built for the iPad, the Screenslam app features trailers, clips, premieres, celebrity interviews, behind the scenes footage and many other exclusive and archival videos you just won't find anywhere else.  

Check out this clip to see how it works.

After downloading & installing the Screenslam app, you'll find a visually stunning interface that allows you to:

* Access Screenslam's wide variety of movie & TV coverage, ranging from blockbusters to indie films & documentaries.

* Go behind the scenes with the cast & crew; drop by sets and red carpet premieres of Hollywood's latest movies & TV shows.

* Stay up-to-date with Screenslam's Trailers by always knowing what's COMING SOON, IN THEATERS and OPENING THIS WEEK.


* Keep entertained by watching hilarious outtakes, bloopers and gag reels, as well as a broad variety of movie & TV "Extras". 

* Effortlessly search videos by keyword with the option to store Favorite Clips, Interviews, Red Carpet Premieres, Behind the Scenes and Trailers.


Screenslam is a terrific new App that lets you be in the know and the envy of your next social gathering. It's also a great way to keep your Netflix queue current and always stocked with the freshest flix. You just can't beat it for entertainment value or information.


Oh, and did I mention the cost? It's FREE.


That's right, it'll set you back nothing at all. Zip. Zero. Nada. Bupkis. All because you read about it here on The Boomer Brief (well, the last part is a total lie, but we should get a little of your gratitude for hooking you up with this sweet new App).

Diabetes-Friendly Chicken Burrito Bowl

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
