From what very little we've seen of him from Batman vs Superman I actually like him a lot more than I ever liked Christian Bale's Batman. So far, anyway.

Anyone else struggling with the new "Select and mask" tool? They say it works better than the Refine Edge tool but every time I've used it, the result looks awful.

Not at all efficiently, and the result will look like crap. The Refine Edge tool in the previous version worked wonderfully. The updated version just destroys the selection.

Roger Moore and Sean Connery are my favorite Bond's. Moonraker was always a favorite of mine, with Goldfinger being a close second. I'm not too fond of any of the newer James Bond movies.

I finally watched the new Ninja Turtles movie today and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

My daughter has recently become obsessed with the newer cartoon (we found it on Hulu) so we bought a DVD that has a bunch of the old '87 series episodes that I watched as a kid. Amazingly I remembered a lot of the episodes we watched!

So I decided to give this movie a shot. I put off watching it because of my knee-jerk reaction "they're going to ruin everything that made this amazing!" but after re-watching the original cartoons I grew up loving, I realized that they were NEVER any good. We were just kids who loved watching goofy giant turtles do flips and eat pizza. It was fun and nostalgic watching them but they were terrible! And I loved it!

So how do you take something that was terrible and completely bazonkers and remake it without it being bad and goofy? You stop worrying about it being "bad" and "goofy" and just run with that. In my opinion they did a great job.

When you think about it "teenage", "mutant", "ninja", and "turtles" are an extremely ridiculous string of words to put together. Always has been, always will be. But still fun as fuck, after all these years.

I don’t circle people with empty profiles. If I can’t get an idea of who you are or what you’re interested in, I can not place you into a circle. 

If you are not in my circles but you are notifying me of your posts, you will be blocked. 

I really only have six circles you could end up in

Gallifrey (for Doctor Who fans)
Spoilers (for Doctor Who fans who watch new episodes as they air)
Droidz (for Android users)
VIP (for my favorite people who post the best stuff) 
VVIP (for my most favorite people whose posts I want a notification for)
Acquaintances (for everyone else)

….I’m working on being a bit more specific because that acquaintances circle is quite large.

I have no interest in “drama” or conflict. If you are disrespectful I’ll uncircle you or end up blocking you because I don’t care to see that again. Debates are fine but when it feels hostile I'll probably just remove/block you. There are more important things to give my attention to. 

I like randomness. If I say something that doesn’t make sense, it probably wasn’t supposed to. 

(you may not want to circle me if these things are important to you since you may not like my opinions of them and I really don't care to hear you complain about my opinions of these things)

  • Apple (the company)
  • Religion
  • Dogs
  • Rap, Hip-Hop, etc
  • Country Music
  • Smoking
  • Drugs
  • Violence
  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • "Reality" shows

Not impressed. The burgers look fancy but taste pretty mediocre.

Eh, it was ok. We got calzones, they were kind of bland and most of it was just bread, not enough room for much filling. We got delivery (took about 45 minutes, though they aren't that far away). They forgot our garlic bread but I called them and they delivered it pretty quickly. I'd probably order from them again to try their pizzas. So this review may not be a final one from me.

Food was fantastic! I ordered a steak shawarma wrap and have already planned on going back tomorrow. I will definitely be going here more often. I only wish they had a bigger place. It was pretty cramped in there.

I've been going here for a couple of years now and the doctors have always been very friendly and helpful. For my first two or three visits I had two of the male doctors but then I was moved to Dr. Linda Rosenberg and she's been my doctor for several months. She is very friendly, informative and comfortable to talk to. They are very good with calling and reminding you about your appointments but if you need to get lab work done make sure they mail you the forms you're supposed to take with you. I've had two visits that have required lab work to be done before my visit and they have forgotten to send me my paperwork for labs. Not a big deal, I've just had to reschedule my follow-up appointment so I can make sure and have my labs done two weeks prior.

VERY good food! We will definitely be ordering from them again! Everything was loaded. We have so many left overs. They told me it would be about 35 minutes for delivery but it got here in maybe 15 or 20. Which is pretty awesome. Honestly, I don't understand those people who complain about delivery taking ten minutes longer than expected. Thirty minutes, ok, but ten? If you have nothing else to do but sit and stare at the door like a dog I can see this being annoying. Personally, I order my food BEFORE I'm on the brink of starvation and I appreciate the fact that I didn't have to get in my car and get it myself. If you're at this page it means you're considering them, so just do it already! If you're not paying with cash let them know when you place the order. Obviously they can't process credit/debit at your doorstep.
