The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Last evening I viewed the first hour of this new HBO series. Jill Scott is a natural in the role and the show took me outside my home, community and nation to another place
in the world. I appreciated the turn-of-phrase the characters used as well as the sense of humor used in the script. The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is engaging and puts a spin on the tired detective drama.

Driving Skills & Video Games

"The games immersed players in an environment where they had to be constantly ready to react to unpredictable events, and where visual information had to be responded to instantly in very precise physical ways". Driving in Houston requires these skills.
I have told passengers in my car that my driving skills derived from video games.



Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Player

Standalone Blu-ray players have finally started catching up to the Sony PlayStation 3 for Blu-ray playback, but Sony's game console is still the only Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi.

Luckily, that appears to be changing in 2009, with both Samsung and LG announcing wireless Blu-ray players at CES 2009. And Monday Sony announced its own wireless Blu-ray player, the BDP-S560. The BDP-S560 includes 802.11N Wi-Fi, which means you'll be able to access BD-Live features without dragging an Ethernet cord into your living room.

Available in Ma for $350 U.S.

Apple's iTunes, plans to boost the price of many hit singles and selected classic tracks to $1.29 on April 7, breaking the psychological barrier of 99 cents in what could be the first big test of how much consumers are willing to pay to download individual songs.

Aishwarya Rai

The other day I DVRd The Last Legion . I did not expect much but to my surprise this kick-ass warrior woman made it more interesting. I think I have a girl crush on Aishwarya Rai.

inspired by Röyksopps' "Remind Me".


The Ripping Friends are Time Travelers.

"They exist always and everywhere there is evil to be vanquished. How do they go through time? With superior scientific technology? No. Through combined rage. They are so manly, they can rip through time. They just reach out their massive angry arms and grab a chunk of space and time in their hands and rip holes in it. It hurts like the Devil to do this and they scream at the top their lungs while suffering for humanity. When Hitler, Genghis Khan or Nebuchadnezzar's armies of evil come bursting through the holes, The Ripping Friends beat the living crap out of them".
