KFC Double Down

With a name like Double Down the new sandwich from KFC should have had a Power themed ad launch. Instead they are playing off the fact that it has no bread. The amount of breading on the fried chicken pieces that make the bulk more than replaces the lack of bread. The cheese seems out of place, and the sauce is ok. I think it would be better wrapped in a tortilla and over $5 seems costly.

Fucking Broken DVR

So our cable company, they who will not be named, informed us we had to replace our DVR. Not until after they sent someone out to replace without mentioning we lose all recorded content. Well since we have 6 episodes of Lost and the rest of the shows we haven't watched this week, we have to keep using the broken one. I wish they would just tell us that info when we call them on the phone.

Better Off Ted

So a few months back we bought the DVD of the first season of Better Off Ted . Then we caught up with the 2nd season, until suddenly it stopped. After a few weeks when the other programs had all started up I check it out and it looks like one of my favorite shows might be on the chopping block. Cest la vie.

So a little about me. I like to watch television. I always have, from when I first viewed the magic box until now. I used to have the full cable package, well not porn channels, but just about everything else. Then a ways back we decided to save some money and one of the heads on the chopping block was the cable package. My wife being the smart one said lets see if we can just keep some of the movie channels. So we did and HBO won the battle against Showtime.

Some time passed and I became used to the channel package. I started to watch some network shows like CSI, the Law and Order family, Monk, MI6, Iron Chef, 24, Alias, the list goes on. Then the writers strike a couple of years ago happened and suddenly it came to a screeching halt. We began to watch shows on DVD and added some more to the list. This pattern of watch show on DVD continued after the strike ended and soon we came back to some of the shows on Showtime. Then the sneaky bastards called my wife after we got hooked to their shows and now we have Showtime again. I wonder who will win the next cable skirmish?

Cluster Flies in my office

So a few years ago we pressure washed the building I work in. This caused all the dust, dirt, and grime that was holding the paint on. later that fall we became infested with cluster flies. As you can see above they are ugly, and large (not as big as the picture). One positive is they are slow, I can kill them with my hand (with has caused me to wash them every 2 minutes). Though it is getting a little old. Until tomorrow when the pest man shows up.

Making Noise gets into Seattle True Independant Film Festival

Making Noise is a short experimental film featuring some northwest noise musicians, including my group phase3. It was just accepted to the STIFF festival, as well as the NW Projections Film Festival in Bellingham.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

This was a great book that has been made into a great movie. We checked it out yesterday and it was well worth it. The scenery in Sweden is amazing and I felt even though they changed some of book to fit in movie form, the story still worked well. The subject matter is quite creepy and the movie as a whole is very dark. If you don't like subtitles you are out of luck as it is in Swedish.
