David Lynch’s Ice Bucket Challenge Is Just What It Should Be

david-lynch-ice-bucket-als

What can you say about this? It’s David Lynch. It’s the Ice Bucket Challenge. It goes as you would hope and expect.

BTW, here’s a link to donate to ALS research. Save yourself some time and trouble … and also from being wet and cold.

The Health Benefits of Beer

I really think this chart speaks for itself. That is, if charts could speak. They can’t, of course.

But that doesn’t mean the information isn’t valid. It is. Valid and fun.

So please, when you drink beer (and you probably will, let’s face it) remember you’re having fun and also doing yourself some good.

And really, who can argue with that?

Of course, and this should really go without saying, don’t drink and drive. That would be stupid.

You’re not stupid, are you?

(Thanks to Mashable for the chart)

Here’s the LEGO ‘Walking Dead’ Season Five Trailer

Due to “circumstances” I need to keep this brief. So, here’s the trailer for Season Five of The Walking Dead made with LEGO, thanks to the efforts of Kristo499.

I like it. Perhaps the actual show should be LEGO all the time? Might be an improvement.

Oh, here’s the “real” trailer for Season Five featuring humans. Which is better? You decide.

I Want to See Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Right Now

interstellar-nolan-movie-1

I have what could be described by some as “patience issues.” For the layman (or woman) that means I don’t like waiting … for anything.

Of course, in life you often have to wait for things, so over the years I’ve developed my skills and refined my technique. These days I can pretty much do it — if I have too. But occasionally, it’s really, really difficult.

The source of my difficulty at the moment is the movie Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine. I’m really having a hard time waiting for this one to come out. It has all the things I love in a movie: space, spaceships, cool science, drama, action, mystery and more.

You can see what I mean if you watch this new trailer, which arrived a few days ago. In a word, the movie looks amazing.¬†November can’t come soon enough.
