Everyone Loves A Underdog

Standard

How come in movies like The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies the bad guys army is so much bigger than the good guys? It seems almost cliche to me. The Orcs in this movie outnumber everyone 2 or 3 to 1 and it doesn’t seem fair. As my wife observes everyone loves a underdog. However in these movies the underdog has to fight twice as hard and there isn’t always a happy ending.

We Have A Roku Now

Standard

We now own the Roku Streaming Stick, is a convenient little device that streams loads of TV shows, movies, news, entertainment and much more. It plugs into our TV and runs off of our wifi connection. This thing is really cool. There are tons of things to look at here. For those considering cutting the cable this is a real alternative. I have been wanting this for awhile because it brings streaming video to our HDTV. The price point is good too.

I like the fact it has a small footprint and has a remote control. So far, so good. I will let you know how it goes as we use this.

Get Out or Stay In, Finding The Balance Inbetween

Standard

Sometimes it’s good to chill out. Then there are times when its good to live a little. Our lives can be chaotic or totally boring. Finding the balance is a tricky situation. I admit I have never been a party guy or the type enjoys going out to a club (although I have done that in my life). There’s nothing wrong with being a homebody but its good to get out and explore (something I need to do more of).

If you are a party animal its OK to have some quiet downtime. However if you enjoy being a homebody and a lot of us are perhaps going out for some coffee to see the outside world can inspire us and stimulate our senses. No one is meant to be alone for too long.

It can be hard to get out if you are going it alone however its a good way to make connections with new people. No matter what you are doing have fun. Life is short.

Talk Shows

Standard

My wife asked the question, where do talk shows find their guests? Seriously the weirdest people come on these programs to air their dirty laundry and their idiosyncratic tendencies. There are all sorts of interesting stores and situations on daytime talk shows. TV can be a frightening place sometimes.
