JC, Netflix!

Having reached the “end” of Netflix (a la “watching everything interesting that is currently available to stream”), an app was recently brought to my attention that has unlocked countless more movies and shows: hola!  It was a (very) easily downloadable extension for my Chrome browser, and within minutes we were experiencing an entire new world of movies and shows that are available in other countries.  Read a bit more about it on the Business Insider site by clicking this link…  or run and download it right now, no real instructions necessary.

Hola App

That being said, we recently watched Disney’s John Carter, and found it a good source of entertainment for the over-two-hour mark.  It is an interesting mix of the movies Gladiator, Stargate, Avatar, I daresay Mission to Mars (though neither of us have seen it, just ‘Mars’ being in the name of it), and one more that we can’t quite put a finger on.

The Cold war

Jon Stewart

I mainly  attempt to refrain from cluttering this space with political jargon and issues..  but this slid in.  Jon Stewart (battling a cold) delivered a rather interesting perspective on the recent gun control issue here in the United States, “Scapegoat Hunter.”  I am linking to the Business Insider, as the Comedy Central site does not have the entire clip for some reason.
