I’ve found more and more of my male friends are wearing cowboy boots, but here’s the kicker, they never wore boots until sometime after they turned thirty and say they are more comfortable than sneakers. Part of me wants to go boot shopping, but I hear a “decent” pair will cost over $200, which could buy several sneakers.
There was a murder about a mile away from my house yesterday. I first found out about it from a text, and then found out much more about it on Twitter than I did from our local news. That’s two murders within a mile of my house within a year, the other being a car-jacking in November. Terminology speaking, I’m not sure if the latter is murder as he was killed by a police officer protecting the public. And then back in January 2013, there was the suicide by gunshot to the head inside Vista Ridge Mall, which I can literally see from my backyard.
This Texas Monthly article is about a month old, but I didn’t know that some believe there’s a link between Blue Bell’s troubles and Jade Helm.
Just about everyone is familiar with the iconic Vietnam war photo of the screaming naked young girl running from a napalm bombing, but yesterday was the first time I saw this photo of her holding a baby which stopped me down for a good minute.
In this article about a new sports drink, the creator stated why he used paint cans, “If you bought them from the local hardware store, they gave you lifetime free shaking on the machine,” he says. “I doubt they knew I wasn’t mixing paint.”
In 1994, Tim Brown had his first Pro Bowl season and was entering free agency. He approached Michael Irvin at the Pro Bowl and told him he wanted to come home to Dallas and be the number-two receiver. Irvin hated that idea so much he said, “I’m glad you told me first. I’m calling Jerry right now and telling him don’t do it.”
This website will calculate the number of hours needed to binge watch a show. I do question some of the data, it said it would take me over 347 days to watch all of ‘Star Blazers’.
Speaking of ‘Star Blazers’, the Japanese made a live-action version of the cartoon, and you can watch it on YouTube, and thankfully it has English subtitles. I also discovered there’s a more modern version of the cartoon but what’s cool is they kept the original concept or style of the animation, but it’s nicer looking. Here’s a trailer for the updated version, though it’s fanmade dubbing audio from the original series.
I just don’t get what’s happening with DirecTV and the Sundance channel. It has always been a non-HD channel on DirecTV until the world premiere of U2’s ‘Song for Someone’ after an episode of ‘Rectify’, the only show I watch on the channel. The next week, Sundance was back to ultra-low-definition (ULD). Last night, it was broadcasting back in HD. Wax on, wax off, wax on, wax off.
