#AvengersAgeOfUltron is a full glass. Here's my review.
Marvel shoots its lightning in the same spot, and it’s still as exciting as the first hit.

My review of the first season of +Netflix's #Bloodline  will be posted on +YouNerded soon, but in the meantime here's my thoughts on the first episode--a Google+ exclusive. SPOILER ALERT

“Part 1” did a lot in a short period of time, but it did so in a way that worked. The opening primed us for what kind of characters the four Rayburn children are. Further solidifying this was the speech from their father given at the dinner. It looks like John (Kyle Chandler) and Danny will be the heart of this story, but I do hope the other siblings, Meg and Kevin, aren’t just backdrops in the overall plot. I don’t quite know how horrible of a human being Danny is completely, so I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him when everyone decided to lay the hate on thick throughout the episode. Seeing as how John kills Danny and begs for us not to judge him or his siblings, Danny must be a horrible person and John must not be, right? I do hope the death of Danny comes sooner. I would love to see the aftermath of all of this extended a bit, but maybe that’s what Season 2 will deal with.

How can you not like +Marques Brownlee's videos? Really excited to see this take over, but I probably won't feel the effects of USB-C given I just got a new PC and Chromebook and soon a new phone, console and TV. I guess it's more like USB-C you in 6 years. I'll stop typing now.

Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" is getting praise, read this if you think that's BS.

Should we veto the Grammy committee? Shouldn’t there be an age limit? Who has a Grammy? EVERYONE.
Music’s biggest night is statistically inaccurate.

I reviewed +Netflix's new show, #Bloodline. You may like it. It's a slow-burn, but the payoff is grand.

Let me know what you all think.
I breakdown every episode of ‘Bloodline’ Season 1.

I really enjoyed this read. And yes, Kanye is a brilliant troll.
To be honest and black is, by nature, to be a threat. To be honest and black and poor is to know deeply and personally how racism and capitalism works, writes Carvell Wallace.
