Don't know what to watch online? We've got you covered w/the best titles leaving Netflix:

We went through every title going offline in November. These are the ones you should watch right now before they disappear soon.

All I wanted to do was get some video from my computer to my iPhone. After some research, I found a really easy method.

I've had the HBO Now for the past couple of months and I'm leaning towards keeping it because it keeps getting pretty awesome movies. Check out what's new in August here:

"Jiro Dreams of Sushi" has been on my Netflix list forever & it's going offline 8/23. What's on your list that you've been meaning to view?

So I've started a Patreon for my independent podcasts. Why? I don't have the ability to make the shows at the quality I used to.

That's where you come in. If you can contribute, excellent. If you want to help in other ways, sharing the link is just as good.

Thank you!

Just listened to my voicemails and heard yet another hacking of my name. "A-zar." Almost sounds Kryptonian.

Experimental August!

Lately, I've gotten into a good exercise habit. I almost look like a "before" picture in an infomercial at this point! (Yes, "before," not "after.).

I haven't been eating as cleanly as I should, so this month I'm going ahead and jumping back into Soylent, that meal replacement drink. The goal is to stick to Soylent for approximately 2/3 of the month, keep to a crazy exercise routine like Insanity Max 30 and lowering alcohol intake.

I'd like to see what I can do before I hit the ripe old age of 36 this October.

Dairydell is a fantastic place for dogs. Everyone is super-friendly and their training is top notch. Dairydell took my two rambunctious labradors and helped them become closer to model dogs.
