  1. Man, switching jobs in my company feels like the smartest thing I've done in a long time. They were bereft of an experienced Oracle guy, so along with my other duties, I've become the "pro from Dover" on Oracle problems. So far, I've been extremely lucky with my recommendations and have optimized and tuned some database processes into order-of-magnitude improvements. The people here think I'm a freakin' genius! I just hope my luck doesn't run out. I'm loving it. So busy, but not bored, and that's what I was looking for. Carlos. P.S. In case you didn't get the "pro from Dover" reference... (and you definitely should!) nsfw language.... Carlos.
  2. The Perfection (Netflix) - This movie kept the surprises coming. Can't say a damn thing without giving away too much. It's weird, scary, bizarre, and satisfying. I give it 4 out of 5 Musical Hacks. Carlos.
  3. Season 3 was fun and satisfying. Loved how I didn't put it together until the end that has a double-meaning. The really shameless product-placement was a ridiculous nod to 80's movies. Now excuse me while I go order a New Coke at Burger King. Carlos.
  4. From the Earth to the Moon is up for pre-order at Amazon and is only $23. Thanks! Carlos.
  5. Carla Gugino stars in Jett, on Cinemax. I like her more than I should be allowed to. She just smolders, I don't what else to say. Do me a favor and watch this show so it can get many seasons. It's really good so far. She's a ex-thief forced to get back into the game by underworld bosses, and there's a lot of intrigue, sex, and violence. Carlos.
  6. I used a 3D printer to print a 3D printer. Then I took the 3D printer back. Is this stealing? Carlos.
  7. Midsommar - not good. I suppose there is more to this than the surface-level allegories about relationships, commune-ism, and seeking love. Or maybe it's just a really long breakup flick. It's slow, but doesn't provide the constant sense of dread as Hereditary did. It's got some gruesome moments that you are actually grateful for, because finally something is happening. There are some weird mindfuck scenes, but there is never a real sense of peril from the viewpoint of the protagonists. The payoff ending is lame and not worth the ride. Big disappointment. My wife is kinda mad at me for wasting a rare movie date-night on this. I give it 2 out of 5 Swedish Roofies. Carlos.
  8. It was a hoot! Had a blast the entire time, except for the awkward periods where you know the are on commercial breaks. They showed us commercials! They should do something special for the live audience during those breaks. The "injured fighters" deal was a head scratcher to me. They hyped it as a "falls-count-anywhere" match, so I was sure that after they got fake injured and loaded into the ambulances, that they were going to go to a remote shot where they would duke it out at the hospital, or ambulance bay, or something, anything. But that was the last we saw of those two dudes. Guess they are both going on vacation? We went because my mother in law is a huge wrestling fan, and she's losing the ability to move around as arthritis is taking its toll, so my wife's sister sprang for tickets for us, as long as we would be the ones to take her mom. I was right there with my MIL. hollering, booing, and cheering. She had an amazing time. Carlos.
  9. Long story, but I'm sitting 5th row ringside at WWE Raw tonight. Looks like our back are to the cameras, but I'm at the edge of my row. I've got no idea what to expect. Carlos.
  10. From the guy who made Hereditary, this movie looks to be just as strange and disturbing Carlos.
  11. Ed you might also like Rick Beato on YouTube. He has a series "What makes this song great" where he deconstructs songs based on music theory. Mostly on classic rock songs. Carlos.
  12. After careful listening under near perfect listening conditions, I've concluded that "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak is one damn near perfect, beautiful song. Might be by design, might not be, but the way he swallows the "don't" at times in the phrase "I don't want to fall in love" is a just wonderous! And the whispered "this world is only going to break your heart", and the final double entendre of the double-negative "Nobody loves no one" are just miracles of lyricism. This is among the most perfect songs, by a genius songwriter. Carlos.
  13. Toy Story 4- This is a fantastic, coming of age movie for Woody. Most of the other toys are relegated to supporting roles, while newer toys are introduced to help on his quest. Forky is hilarious, and Duke Kaboom brings the stunt action. The climax is not the edge-of-your-seat thrill ride as in the previous 3, but still fun and funny. It's touching and heart warming, and I teared up a little more than once. I give it 4 out of 5 convivial high fives. Carlos. p.s. Make sure you stay all the way through the credits, and I mean all the way through.
  14. Us - The best part about this movie was its trailer. It was intriguing, enticing, and filled you with angst and dread. The movie itself falls apart, and doesn't make a lick of sense. I'm willing to forgive a lot in the name of a fun, scary ride, but the dumbness of the characters and the plot were just too bad for me to have anything good to say. I give it 2 out of 5 faulty flares. Carlos.
  15. My daughter got excellent grades this year, so I told her to pick her vacation spot. Knowing Galaxy's Edge isn't open at Disney World yet, she picked Ohio, for the excellent coasters at King's Island and Cedar Point. If you're in to thrill rides, you simply can't beat these two parks. There are so many world-class coasters. At Cedar Point, Steel Vengeance opened in 2018. It is a hybrid coaster - a steel track built on a traditional wooden coaster frame. Guys, this is the real deal. I've ridden coasters all over the US, and this is the absolute best by miles. I can't even believe it is allowed to exist! There are snap rolls on this thing that seem like they should be at the edge of a normal human's tolerance. Plus, there are NO shoulder harnesses -- a lap bar is all you get and there's no handles or anything really to hang on to. It has the most "air time" - the feeling of coming-out-of-your-seat weightlessness - than any other coaster. The twists and turns were just mind scrambling. I've never felt so discombobulated after a ride. It is THE benchmarks by which all coasters will be judged from now on. Check out this POV ride. Anyway, if you like scary, thrilling coasters, you cannot go wrong with a trip to these two parks. They are about a 4 hour drive away from each other. Carlos.
