Go See Black Panther!

I finally got to see this movie.  It is amazing.  It's not just a male action movie.  The females steal the show.  The action was well choreographed.  The secondary characters are more than just there to pass the time.  I can't wait for more Black Panther movies!  He'll be in the next Avengers movie.  They say that this may eclipse the box office of The Avengers.  I hope so.  They did an excellent job with this movie.

Just Dance Korean

I like Korean music.  I turned on YouTube last night.  I searched for Just Dance K-Pop.  Sure enough, they have videos.  If you bought the Wii game, it would only work in the market it was created for and that is not America.  I danced through a bunch of them and worked up a sweat.

Few Movies Getting Released

When you look at the box office, there is really nothing out there.  You have the stupid Fifty Shades and they balanced that out with a stupid talking animal take on Peter Rabbit.  I guess they thought the moms that like the one need the other for their kids.  Nothing high brow here.  Thank God my children have grown out of the talking animal movies.  Although it looks more realistic than the 90's, it usually follows a paint by number script with fart and poop jokes thrown in.  If you have a lazy kids movie, you have to spice it up with farts and poop.  At least we have Black Panther next week.  It's almost like the theater is a desert and there are tons of mirages out there, but only a few good and real watering holes.

Falcon Heavy

I was leaving work last night, well, late afternoon.  I timed it with the rocket launch.  I stood there looking into the sky.  Until one goes up, you really do not know where to look.  I had the general direction.  A coworker came out and she asked what was that.  I moved a little and it was the rocket.  A tree was sort of blocking the view.  Really, all you could see was the flame from the rocket.  Soon, we'll get to see a whole lot more of these.  Not only is Space X launching, but we have Blue Origins also preparing a heavy rocket.

Cloverfield Paradox

I watched the Cloverfield Paradox last night.  I liked it.  I had been reading bad reviews all day about it.  Sometimes, I think people just over analyze movies.  My favorites are when they are critical on Science Fiction.  They'll point something out as inaccurate, like in Star Wars.  It's a movie in a make believe world.  In that world, they can create whatever they want.  Movies tend to be that way.  It was better than Life.  Life, to me, felt like an Alien rip off.  It adds another chapter in the Cloverfield series.  It may even give some explanation to what is going on.

Super Bowl

I was not going to watch it, but my daughters wanted to watch it.  I sat down with them.  They made it entertaining.  They do not really follow football.  I tried to explain it to them.  One just kept making up terms.  Field Goad = Kicky Thingy.  I crashed after the halftime show.  Glad the underdog won.

Red Sparrow

I started reading this book.  I really enjoy it.  It is a modern spy thriller.  It even may be a little prophetic.  It is a trilogy of books.  The final book is coming out soon.  It is called The Kremlin's Candidate.  The series started before Trump.  It is written by Jason Matthews.  The movie is coming out soon, but give the book a read.

Discovering Quinoa

About a week or so ago, I had a class at work.  In the lunch I ate was a quinoa salad.  I had never ate quinoa before.  I loved it.  I tried writing the restaurant about the recipe, but they ignored it.  So I looked online.  I found many recipes.  I searched for the ingredients.  I thought it would be a hard search.  So, I went to Whole Foods.  They are known for carrying healthy foods.  Later, I discovered every store, even Aldi, carries it.  If you ever get a chance to eat it, do so.  Fixing it is simple.  It is like fixing regular rice.  One cup quinoa to two cups water.  Bring to a boil, then turn down low until the water has been absorbed.
