Semi-random thoughts

  • I'm not much of a baseball fan. I find the game too slow. But I do still keep an eye on how the Indians are doing (I am from Cleveland). I never realized until recently that I can watch all of the Indians games right here at home. Time Warner Cable threw its sports package into its HD Extra package at some point, and all of the major leagues not otherwise shown are in it. It's always the home team broadcast, so when the Indians are on the road I have to suffer through some one-sided commentary, but at least I can see what is happening.
  • When I first saw articles from the Daily Caller in the "News For You" list that Yahoo puts on some of its pages, I immediately distrusted its apparent bias. It definitely seemed to be a politically conservative news source--maybe not as right wing as Fox News,  but certainly not one I'd trust to be objective. So whenever one of its stories pops up I generally don't even read it. Now there is another reason I dislike it: one of its reporters interrupted President Obama's statement at a press conference. 
  • Whenever I play the Star War Cantina Band on the jukebox at a bar, someone, generally a middle-aged guy, goes wild.

Micro movie review

Snow White and the Huntsman--Fairly well done, though the final battle needed more work. Nothing surprising, little gore. The dwarfs are the best part.
