There are few actors and directors about whom I’m able to say, “Well, this guy (sorry, no girls here) has never released a film which was bad, I’m watching new one without any review, it must be good”. One of these actors was Denzel Washington. Was, because I’ve recently seen 2 Guns. Don’t take me wrong. It’s not so bad, I’ve actually quite enjoyed it, it was entertaining. It’s just that it involves Denzel and I really expect more from him.
I prefer not to know much about the book before I read it. I like to be surprised. And that’s exactly what happened with The Myths of Innovation. I’ve thought that I would just read some interesting stuff about innovations. As I’m already familiar with Myths Series I’ve expected good stuff, and wasn’t disappointed. But I wasn’t expecting motivational book at all. Of course it starts with some stories and explanations of most famous inventions, and inventors.
Once Upon a Time there was a man and his wife. And they’ve had a child, which was lovely, but at the same time very demanding. So they were tired most of the time and needed entertainment which would allow them to spend a nice evening once in a while. As there was wast kingdom of Netflix nearby they’ve used it’s library to search for the good show. And they’ve found one, so they’ve thought at least.
I’ve switched to Android 4.2 recently and noticed one quite annoying problem. I’m using Tasker to switch mobile data on only periodically in order to allow phone to download emails, weather info and other stuff. For majority of time when phone is in my pocket data services are off. It saves a lot of juice from my battery. And it’s working quite fine actually, or was working on Android 4.1. On 4.
I must sadly say that recently comedies are in decline. They’re not funny anymore. There were movies where I was able to give a laugh here and there, but generally they’ve sucked. And once my hero, Vince Vaughn is no exception. His latest pictures lacked this thing which made me love him at first. Maybe it’s because I’m getting old and things are not so funny to me anymore. But no, old comedies are still good.
From time to time I see new stuff on the web made by fans of Supernatural. Some of them are funny, some not. Some are good, others really bad. But it’s not the point. What’s important is the fact that the series has a lot of admirers. But why? Not that it’s bad. I’ve watched two seasons and it was enjoyable. Problem is that it’s repetitive. Each episode is build around the same scheme.
I don’t like judging things without knowing them, so usually I don’t rate movies or books which I haven’t seen. This time however I must make an exception. I’ve seen part of Killing Season recently. Story is simple. Benjamin Ford (De Niro) is one of the executioners during the Bosnian War. One of the people who were supposed to be executed is Emil Kovac (Travolta). He survives. And yes, he wants a revenge.
Hulu was offering two months trial on their Plus service. I’ve decided to give it a try and here is what I think about it. On plus: - Criterion collection access - if you’re into old movies - Full access to some shows - if you’ve missed something or want to re-watch such all time hits as Cosby Show - You can watch Hulu on your TV or mobile device, but actually it’s also possible without Plus if you’re techie
First of all I must show off a little. I’m free again! Yeah, I’ve ditched my O365 subscription and moved to outlook.com. I’ve decided that paying 6$ for mailbox when you’re not using it for business is simply a waste. So far I’m happy, there are some things I’m missing. But there also are things which are better, like: - Categories - yeah they’re working far better in free version
Taking into account recent revelations with Edward Snowden and government surveillance programs I’ve started to thinking that maybe I should ditch my email provider and host it on my own server. It’s definitely not good when somebody is reading your emails, even if you’re innocent. Or maybe especially? OK, so I would host my own email server and then what. Well, nothing. All my friends and family members are using Gmail or other email services from big companies.
