gadgets: Netflix on iPhone/iPod Touch

That sound you may have just heard was the sound of office productivity dropping… or perhaps increasing. Thanks to a tweet from Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny! I discovered that Netflix has finally released their app*–initially just for iPad–for...

reviews: flawless victory

The reviews for The Last Airbender have, so far, been delicious in their hatred for the movie. It seems that our culture always needs a whipping boy, so to speak, and this movie is the current one bent over with...

night out: The Two Towers at Wolf Trap

I really wish I’d mentioned this sooner so people would have had a chance to make plans to go. A few weeks ago, I won my company’s ticket raffle for Wolf Trap tickets to see The Lord of the Rings:...

movies: pride goes before The Fall

Saturday evening I finally–I’d wanted to see it for a while, but it slipped off my radar–saw The Fall directed by Tarsem Singh. I always appreciate stories within movies where the stories seem to take place on another plane, a...

movies: To boldly go… back to the beginning?

A new Star Trek trailer is out and people are buzzing about it on the interwebs. I haven’t been all that jazzed about it because frankly I’m sick of the remakes. I feel like either we’ve exhausted all new creativity...
