Yep, spent more than a few hours watching his stuff.

Maybe because I've been dabbling with building guitar pedals again, I've been watching a lot of pedal related videos on YT lately (Wamplers channel etc). Just wish I could find someone who demo'ed stuff with something other than relentless blues rock etc. Chords of Orion is about the only alternative I've found, the Bob Ross of ambient guitar. :)

Today, will probably follow the weekly ritual of being disappointed with 'Silicon Valley', then being really impressed with 'Barry'.

Netflix series 'Taken' which is pretty happening, one could really binge on this one.
I think there is some movie by that name, this has nothing to do with it. Seems like that was a Liam Neeson thing.
This is not a very good title for this series, it only refers to the first couple episodes. It's CIA-oriented which is a favorite area for me particularly with a TV series.

Jace-BeOS wrote:I finally saw Black Panther in the last theatre run in my area. I enjoyed it. When we got back to the house, my companion and I decided to watch more of the Marvel films she hasn't yet seen, so that consisted of Thor: The Dark World (which we both felt was an improvement on the first Thor) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which we both felt was a major improvement over the first Captain America). Hopefully we will move on to Avengers: Age of Ultron today (we've seen the interceding movies in theatre).

I never liked superheroes in comic book form, and I'm not into all the techno-fantasy and straight-up fantasy inherent to them, but the majority of the superhero movies and shows from the last two decades have been quite entertaining, sometimes excellent, and sometimes emotionally relatable.
I loved the original and the subsequent Captain America. I didn't look at Marvel Comics at all, ever. I liked Superman when I was like 8. I liked that DC thought it something to do to come up with Supergirl.
I looked at 'Underground' comix in the 70s and Metal Hurlant/Heavy Metal in the 80s.

But for the most part I really dig the Marvel Universe. My favorite, which I wish Netflix would get more up to date on, is Agents of Shield. Joss Whedon rules, ok.

I don't go to movies in the theater. I could deal with the California in downtown Berkeley which isn't going to have a bunch of idiots distracting from the picture, but the last time I went to a flick was Inland Empire. Attended by me and like 5 other people that afternoon. That's over a decade ago.

Rewatched Deadpool. Guess I was too harsh the first time, so this time gets an 'okay'.

Watched 'Addams Family Values' for the first time since the 90's. The camp scene is still hilarious.

'Love And Mercy,' bio-pic on Brian Wilson on his getting away from his notoriously parasitic doctor. Excellent flashback scenes. Not really a huge Beach Boys fan, but lately I've been listening to Pet Sounds quite a bit, and am fascinated by Wilson, who wrote all that music while he was losing his mind.

make noise rene bids. trying to get in to some of the deeper functions.

might be better to do this with the modular in front of me, doing it might solidify it in my mind rather than just passively watching and getting more confused...

Dead Snow - funny and gorgeous looking; I enjoyed it.

Dead Snow 2: Red Vs Dead - has a few nice moments, but overall much weaker than the original.

Rewatched Shutter Island. Great movie and truly impressive performance from DiCaprio.

Can't believe the expanse has been cancelled. Rave reviews, 100% on rotten toms, and it gets cut.
SyFy channel makes some really weird decisions some times. Not impressed.

Still the best scifi on TV at the moment. Ep6 was so good. Especially the bit where the dodgy Mengle wannabe doctor got his.

:tu: those end credits :lol:

would have been better if "the woman who has the worst shrieking laughter in the world" had been at a different showing. otherwise a fun ride (except the hidden "get you in the feels" parts :o )

Re-watched Watchmen.

Works for me, faults and all.
