The Punisher Season 1, Episode 10: “Virtue of the Vicious” Recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 10: “Virtue of the Vicious” Recap

Things are coming to a head in The Punisher. I think this show is well-paced. Netflix didn’t have any long periods of inaction, and they didn’t go crazy with unrelenting action. But this episode is action-packed.   One of Senator Ori’s Anvil guards hears a knock on his apartment door. Lewis’ voice calls, “New York Bulletin.” The guard says from the other side of the door, “I don’t need a subscription.” and incautiously walks right up to the peephole. Lewis shoots him in the face...

Photos of the Day: “Consumed” by location.href, and More Photos Inside

| PHOTO BY LOCATION.HREF, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY LOCATION.HREF IS APPEALINGLY EMPTY. The beauty of this photo, depicting a vast, abandoned, gutted space, is found in the light and color. Lit only by daylight through through the open ceiling, the clean gray of concrete and the splashes of color from the graffiti really drew me into this photo. I also really like the largeness of the space, depicted well in this composition. Thanks, location.href! More Photos I Really Liked Today   Click here...
IKEA BYÅS TV Bench Review

IKEA BYÅS TV Bench Review

| PHOTO FROM IKEA.COM |   IKEA (ALMOST) NEVER FAILS ME, and the BYÅS TV Bench/TV unit is no exception. This Black Friday, I upgraded to a 4K TV, so of course I needed something to put it on. As usual, when I need a piece of furniture, I head straight to IKEA’s website and peruse their catalog. Why? Because IKEA usually has something that appeals aesthetically to me, and I find if I pick one of their pieces that fits somewhere in the middle-to-upper end of their price range, I get...

Photos of the Day: “B787 Dreamliner – Air Europa (2017)” by Ismael Jordá, and More Photos Inside

| PHOTO BY ISMAEL JORDÁ, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY ISMAEL JORDÁ IS A SHINY, BEAUTIFUL USE OF MONOCHROME. It’s not as easy as you might think to make a rigid object like an airplane look as dynamic as this, especially with the very limited angle options of a person photographing one from the ground. It’s perfectly composed, sharply in-focus, and has great contrast, but my favorite part is probably the color. The deep blue-gray chosen as the palette for this photo is very striking,...

Photos of the Day: “R0369896” by THANASORN JANEKANKIT, and More Photos Inside

| PHOTO BY THANASORN JANEKANKIT, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY THANASORN JANEKANKIT USES COLOR, SHAPE AND PERSPECTIVE TO ACHIEVE A STRIKING RESULT. The rectangular box that the man is holding works nicely with the similarly shaped building in the background, and both, through perspective, seem to be of a similar size. I really like the blue gradient of the right side of the photo and how it works with the lighter blue of the sky. Thanks, THANASORN JANEKANKIT!   More Photos I Really Liked Today  ...

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 9: “Front Toward Enemy” Recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 9: “Front Toward Enemy” Recap

I know what “Front Toward Enemy” means from reading action novels. There’s going to be some real opportunities for death and destruction in this episode for sure.   Dinah is still in shock. She’s just lying in bed, turning around. The shot keeps cutting to let us know that time is passing. As she lies in the bed, a single tear drips down the side of her face. She really liked Sam. I can’t relate, but I get that having another (sort of) partner die would be traumatizing. Just not Sam. He was so...
Recipe of the Day: How to make cashew butter in 10 minutes

Recipe of the Day: How to make cashew butter in 10 minutes

I’m making some nut butter today, and I thought I’d share this cashew butter recipe with everybody! It’s super easy, though you need the right equipment for it. It takes ten minutes once you’ve got the blender and nuts. You’ll need a high-powered blender or food processor. I use the Ninja BL770, but there are other blenders (like Vitamixes) that have the same 2 horsepower.   Nut butter in general is a very versatile ingredient and topping. Put in a smoothie, add to yogurt, or (my personal...

Check Out 2017’s Last Supermoon in Your Local Sky December 3rd

THE SUPERMOON IS HERE AGAIN, and every time, it’s a treat to see. So don’t miss it.   What’s a “supermoon”? “Supermoon”, is not an official astronomical term. Astronomers, according to Wikipedia, instead refer to it as “perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system”. While I appreciate the precise terminology, I think I’ll just stick with plain old “supermoon” for now. It gets the point across. A supermoon occurs when: The...
