    Bravo has been growing flower spikes every year! It's blooming season for Bravo now!

    To that I say... BRAVOOOOOOO!!!

  • Breezy's New Flower Spike

    2018-11-11T07:58:00Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    Breezy is finally growing a new spike! It's just peeking toward the camera. The three growths behind it are new roots.

    Breezy previously kept growing the spike it came with and eventually killed it off. It missed last year's bloom but hopefully I can look forward to seeing those white with purple streaks flowers again!

  • Halloween [2018]

    Pretty much on par with what you expect from slasher films. May need a sip through 1 Mai Tai as the movie sets up the main event but once it gets going, it gets good. Of course, the experience is enhanced with a full theatre.

    Now I have a certain piano riff stuck in my head...

  • Daredevil Line

    2018-11-04T20:09:38Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    "I want to kill you for dying..." is the most memorable line for me so far.

    I had to pause it to finish laughing. The rest of the line makes more sense once the character gives it.

  • Stop Signs

    2018-10-30T08:48:21Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    It's quite astonishing how stop signs are completely disregarded by a lot of drivers. Almost every driver treats stop signs as yields and never come to a stop. Some drivers even expect traffic with right-of-way to eventually yield to those with a stop.

    Some memorable examples in my experience:
    - A driver from a side street approaches a stop sign and honks at me as a pedestrian for crossing in front of them with the right-of-way traffic.
    - A driver approaches an intersection with a stop sign only for a specific direction while the cross-traffic has right-of-way. The right-of-way traffic is congested and the driver at the stop proceeds to honk and shout at the cross-traffic to move out of the way for them!

    Seriously, if you have a stop sign and the cross-traffic does not, YOU have to STOP and WAIT for that traffic to clear. They don't have to do anything for you!

    Heh... must by a planetary thing...

  • Netflix Spam

    Netflix is in on it now?!

    I guess the "Do not send me any emails" checkbox in their communication settings is meaningless.

    Possibly a CAN SPAM violation.

    Dear marketing people,

    I am opening your E-mails; I just refuse to download your tracking pixels!

    I also use my reject list liberally. Love hard bounces!

    P.S.- Screw you! MWAHAHAHAAA =)

  • HOT: Romeo and Juliet

    2018-10-20T02:07:17Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    I thought the minimalist modern look was interesting but it was weird that they stuck with rapiers as their weapons of choice. Imagine modern-day costumes armed with rapiers. I guess if they went with knives, it would look much like West Side Story.

    I do like that the chorus sings Aloha Oe at the end of the performance after the curtain closes. It reminds me that I'm attending opera in Hawaii.

  • Trojan E-mail Scam

    2018-10-20T02:06:41Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    I finally received one that revealed a very old password sent in plaintext E-mail!‎

    Despite knowing that it's an empty threat, I did go password-cycle anything that was using that old password (some old accounts from when I didn't know better that I didn't bother to include in my regular rotation). It also got me wondering who was compromised. My E-mail address from my alma mater was used, which I haven't used to sign up for accounts in a very long time so this must have been a breach of a very old database.

    On the plus side, the scammer provided a wonderful service: alerting me that a password is compromised and I should no longer use it.

    Details of the scam: https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/07/13/sextortion-scam-knows-your-password-but-dont-fall-for-it/

    On another note, I was trying to find the true source of that article. Duplicates seem to have popped up everywhere even on well-known news outlets but who was the original author?!

    I'm sure I already mentioned this but whenever I stumble upon Mother/Earthbound music, I eventually end up at the choral version of Mother's eight melodies, which is spine-chilling for me!

    My mint's second runner decided to stop running and it's growing a sprig at the end. There are no active runners now.

    Here is a photo of my mint with its runners spread out. The tape measure is locked at 6ft.

    A benefit of having a cold is that second-hand smoke no longer bothers me! My respiratory system is already at heightened alert with mucus coating in place!

    ****ing smoke would bother me anyway xD

  • Microhabitat [소공녀]

    2018-09-27T01:42:53Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    The best of what I've seen in this collection of Korean films.

    It was so well-polished that you wouldn't even know it was a low-budget indie film!

    A Quiet Place felt a lot more immersive but I felt this was better than Ready Player One so in-between those two it goes!

  • Keys to the Heart [그것만이 내 세상]

    2018-09-18T01:07:25Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    Very predictable story and character development. This movie follows the typical K-drama, which consists of:
    - A hospital scene
    - A car accident
    - Poor vs rich families
    - Long-lost family member returning

    Performances were good though. 2 Mai Tais!

  • Purchase Agreement

    2018-09-15T03:25:39Z via Identi.ca Web To: Public CC: Followers

    Probably hard to see the key text at the bottom:

    "Purchase subject to additional terms and conditions (including arbitration provision) found inside."

    Since when did we have to agree to terms and conditions as a condition of purchasing a product?

    How would one be able to see the agreement prior to making the purchase when it's inside? I purchased this online so there was no way I could have seen this.

    Fortunately, the agreement allows for one to opt-out of arbitration so I did so immediately.

    The agreement contained:
    • support info
    • arbitration clause and opt-out option
    • GPL and links for its firmware
    • warranty

    At least the agreement didn't restrict me on how I should use an external HDD...

    they think they can get away with anything...

    It's Korean cinema time at the local art museum so incoming Korean movies!

    The action and story felt like B-movie material so it was subpar for me. However, the set and visuals were great! So it's a good mindless popcorn film and I understand how it did well in the Korean box office.
