The Best Hal Holbrook Movies You’ve Never Seen

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week, we look at some lesser-known gems from a recently passed star.) It’s been a while since the great Hal Holbrook graced the big screen. He showed up on television here and there, and he starred in a handful of indies over the past few years, but it was Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln (2012) that last saw the graceful, gravelly voiced actor ...

Strap in for a detailed explainer on flat-earthers' beliefs

Johnny Harris took on the brain-melting task of truly understanding the argument that the earth is flat, including the modern conspiracy theory that the military guards ice walls circling earth's perimeter.

Scent of a Brand: Cadillac Wants to Be Ahead by a Nose?

Hoo-ah. While some readers might argue that Cadillac still has a long way to go to recapture the prestige it once enjoyed, maybe they’d feel differently if their house — or body — emitted the rich scent of the crested marque. Whatever that might be… According to a U.S. trademark application, it would seem that […] The post Scent of a Brand: Cadillac Wants to Be Ahead by a Nose? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Calibre on Centos 7 - Hoo to run it in a container?

I would like to run calibre (and set up a minimal development environment) on CentOS 7. (I cannot upgrade to CentOS 8.) Unfortunately the glib on CentOS 7 is too old. (See this MobileRead thread). So I was think of using a container to run calibre. Does anyone has experience with this, preferably on CentOS 7 and maybe with Singularity Containers?

The Most Ergonomic Camera Ever Made

A discussion got going yesterday about the user-friendliness of the new Leica SL2. Assuming you care about such things (some people just deal with whatever they have and get on with it), what's your idea of the most ergonomic or user-friendly camera ever made? I do care about such things (I'm an idealist type, which, with objects and shopping, makes me an optimizer—that's what I enjoy), and, after giving this a lot of thought—too much thought, no doubt—I think the most ergonomic camera I've ever...

How games conquered the movies

We used to think that as video games matured, as a medium, they would become more like Hollywood, becoming more focused on character development, plot reversals, and tight, suspense-driven narratives, rather than action set pieces alternating with cinematic cut scenes. Hoo boy, were we wrong. Instead the exact inverse has happened. Action movies have become more like video games. And you know what, this is no bad thing. I thought of this while watching John Wick 3 last night. (Which I loved, as ...

"HOOHA may appear in the dictionary with the definition that you see in the clue..."

"... but I can tell you that is not how that 'word' exists in most people's minds in 2019. I wanted HOOPLA and honestly considered the possibility that I'd have to cram two letters into one box somewhere in there."Writes Rex Parker about today's NYT crossword, which clued "hooha" as "Big to-do." Anyway... my dictionary, the unlinkable OED, defines "hooha" with one meaning only, "A commotion, a rumpus, a row." Historical examples include:1931 Punch 14 Oct. 402/1 The devil of a hoo-ha in the p...

A Renewed Passion For Design And Development

At the close of last week’s post I mentioned that working on a new site for myself has reinvigorated a little of the old passion for design and development. While I was very hesitant to start working on the site again, I’ve had a lot more fun than I expected since I’ve been writing code. I wasn’t looking forward to it all. I came up with a design a few years ago that I mostly liked. It wasn’t quite what I wanted and probably still isn’t, but I liked it well enough. I had an idea for the na...

Producers are meeting California’s new, tougher rules for cannabis safety

Tougher requirements for marijuana purity that kicked in this year in California aren’t triggering the high failure rates that emptied shelves at cannabis shops last summer, when the state began phasing in mandated testing. The better results signal that the cannabis industry is stabilizing in its second year of regulated sales, despite a roller coaster first year that included one testing lab caught falsifying marijuana test results, industry officials and others said. There’s still concern abo...

Red Dead Redemption 2

Hoo boy, I am playing some serious video games today! Red Dead Redemption 2 just came out, and it’s being called the best video game ever made. I bought it at Sainsburys along with some bagels and curry flavor baked beans. I’m only 2 hours in, still locked into the strict story/tutorial mode, but it is fun. It’s also gorgeous. Graphically this must be the greatest, deepest virtual world ever created. That’s something. I also have Witcher, but it hasn’t grabbed me like this. Maybe it is the exten...

The Walking Dead's Latest Episode Only Made a Single Mistake

Hoo-boy, a lot has changed in blogging since I started. Back then, people relied on RSS feeds to read blogs.

Buds You Can Actually Keep Spotless

What’s the difference between a toilet seat and your ear buds? For starters, your toilet seat is probably cleaner! For unknown reasons, headphones and ear buds are one of those unique exceptions to cleanliness that we’re all guilty of ignoring.
