I so wanted the iTunes digital copy option, but I guess this studio that released the movie has a history of only supporting UltraViolet.

Release the KRAGLE! So cool that you saw this movie. I can tell you that, yes, the big screen brought out a lot in this movie. I saw it twice on the big screen and the second time was even better. I can also tell you that I've seen it come back to theaters and other one time showings on the big screen here locally. So it may be the case in your area. I also own the Ultraviolet (it's so easy to type Ultra Violent, which is how setting up these accounts and managing the media can make us) and have watched it on the iPad and it's not the same, even though I still enjoy the movie.

Wonderful tribute. I love this album as well. Remember playing it to death along side Steve Martin's comedy album (which came out years before). Will have to go back and play it a few times this week to garner me some belly laughs.

It's a toss up for me... it's either a kiwi or a pear.

I'm going with the scroll wheel of your mouse. Unless you are building a robot and that's it's eye socket.

That up close green looked just like broken cement that had been painted over. Nice stumping. This week, toothbrush head/bristles.

So not only 10k steps, but averaging 11k steps a day. That's awesome. New blogware... are you moving from TypePad to another platform?

My suggestion is Lamb by Christopher Moore. I follow him on Twitter and have read his short stories years ago. He's a great writer and his themes seem to have a draw for those of us that like comic fantasy.

Jenny Lewis. Ace Frehley. Cool new music. The Jenny Lewis is getting a lot of press. She's on tour as well (with a SLC date). I've seen Rilo Kiley before (they opened for Modest Mouse some years ago).

Love that SciencePorn tweet. The duct vs. duck tape name gets a lot of attention from the grammar police. The brand of Duck Tape that Samuel mentioned means they simply made it easier for people to associate the tape with a common name pronunciation. As you said, dumb people getting helped out here.

Yep. It's nice when you have the Weather app on multiple devices. Although I don't use my Android phone anymore (it's been relegated to being used when I travel outside the US)

It's all good. Now I wanted a ham and cheese sandwich.

When you tap on the upper left corner of the iOS Weather app, you can edit locations. The Android version of the Weather app also adds above the edit locations a place to login to your Yahoo account, which if you had locations already saved in your account, it would add those for you. I installed the Weather app to my iPad and had to manually add all of the locations that my iPhone had. If I could login to my Yahoo account, it would have loaded all my saved locations automatically.

In addition to the National Hot Dog Day on the 23rd, the 24th was National Tequila Day. I've been liking both the Yahoo News Digest and Weather apps. Very cool to have the current weather and current news in my iPhone. The only omission on the Weather app is that you can't sign into it with your Yahoo account to save locations. The Android version of the Yahoo Weather app has that option. Not sure why that is. I've submitted it to Yahoo to see if they update it at some point. 40k tweets is a nice milestone. When I hit 50k tweets, it seemed like a lot. Can't imagine hitting 100k anytime soon. I have several people I follow that are past 100k and one person is past 300k tweets.

If I would have removed the "grilled" from my ham and cheese guess, I would have gotten it mostly right as well. This week I am guessing this is bolt screwed into a cement bench (painted green)

How awesome to hear those sets were great. Love me some Cloud Nothings as well (I admit to getting them and Wild Nothing mixed up early on in my listenings) I still would like to visit one of these years during Pitchfork.

I swear that was bacon. Of course, I like bacon so I was looking at the photo with biased eyes. This week? grilled ham and cheese.

Apple already knows how to let you select multiple items to delete.. it's in their Mail app. So why not provide that same functionality for Contacts. The in-app 30% fee irks me, as well. Many services that I would love to purchase inside the app are gone, thanks to Apple applying that 30% fee to every purchase, not just for developers selling the app itself. As for the built in apps, I put them in a folder that I don't use. Keeps them out of the way. I would like to see a hide feature that could not show the apps. Then if you wanted them, you could just use the search for the name and then unhide it.

While that would be an awesome thing, I can't imagine the cost of it. With or without signing a 2 year contract.

Yeah, that spam with my name attached to Amy Tang email address. Puzzling, that's for sure. Maybe something to do with an address book. But how spam people have access to an address book. And if none of us amateur spammers were emailed from your work account.... Great photo of Nathan.

My guess is the licensing deal that they made for the movie was different than the licensing deal for the soundtrack. Seems odd, but hey, it's licensing, which can normally ruin a good soundtrack. I like that the Powerslave jewel case had another Iron Maiden CD in it. Love Seventh Son album.

My wife binge watches shows often. Doctor Who, Bones and some British comedy I can't think of the name right now. I get about 3 episodes and then I get distracted by something else. I admit to being envious of those who can binge watch TV shows. It's easy with Netflix having all of them in one place. Grill... this is pretty close to the grill we bought a couple of years ago and it's really worked out well. http://www.charbroil.com/grills/gas-grills/gourmet-tru-infrared-series/char-broil-gourmet-t-22d-463251413.html At $270, it's not cheap, but most places like Lowe's and Home Depot have end of season deals. We spent $199 for ours. I'm not a fan of the side burners, which this one does not have. Just a shelf on each side.
