Seinfeld connection to Breaking Bad

18 02 2013

I enjoyed doing this last time with Seinfeld to Twin Peaks so I thought I’d relive the fun with the other last TV show I watched, Breaking Bad, and its connection to Seinfeld.  I noticed that someone also made a video of a bunch of these.

31 12 2012
As has been my tradition for the last 10 years (see 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003 and 2002) I’m making a list of my favorite 10 movies/tv that I watched for the first time this year. I’m not recommending these shows for everyone, here’s the list:

Honorable Mentions to Higher Ground, and If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front which are also great films. Read the rest of this entry »

Zilch completed (pretty much)

22 06 2012

I’ve been playing Zilch on Kongregate on and off for well over a year in order to get all 119 achievements. The problem was always staying consistent with the same browser and not losing all your achievements when you move to a new computer.

Of all the available achievements, I’m only missing 4, they are:

  • Ma-hoo-hassive score!: Taking 6,000 pts on one turn – I’ve been trying with reckless abandon for about 40 games and have still not got this achievement – I’ve been over 5000 2 or 3 times, but haven’t crossed 6000 yet.
  • Lifetime Zilcher: 100 wins in total – these last three just require putting in more mindless time and I don’t intend on reaching them
  • Zilch Fiend: Finish at least 200 games
  • Gold Plated Zilch Machine: Finish at least 500 games

10 years of movie reviews

19 06 2012

While I have certainly let my webpage go to pot while I’ve spent more time on G+, I have kept up the brief movie reviews section and have just completed 10 years of reviews yesterday.

To celebrate, here are links to the top 10 lists from each year: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003 and 2002.

Some trivia:

  • I’ve only given 11 movies a 10/10 rating
  • I’ve watched 976 movies for an average of 0.2671 movies per day or about 1 movie in 4 days
  • The average movie rating I give is 6.86; I consider a 7 to be a recommendable movie

Megaman Printable Coloring Pages

5 06 2012

My kids love coloring pages so I thought I’d make a few of them with Megaman. If you like them and want others, let me know and I can probably make them.

Megaman Cross Stitch Project Complete

4 06 2012

By the Numbers:

  • 764 days to complete (2 years, 1 month, 3 days)
  • over 56,500 X’s (8 scenes were 81 X 81 X 8 = 52,488 X’s plus title = 4,318 X’s and boss names = a few more)
  • 17 DMC skeins completely used up (10 black and 7 of various colors)
  • 43 different colors used
  • only black, white and Megaman’s flesh color were used on all 9 panels
  • most color on a single panel is Crashman with over 71% black
  • overall finished size is 2′ 8″ X 13″ (each boss panel is 5 3/4″ square)

See all the individual panels here.

And, I think that I’m done cross stitching for a while. I’ll have to figure out what my next project will be.

Airman Completed, Project Finished!

2 06 2012

Well, it took a long time but I’ve finally finished the last Megaman panel in the cross stitching extravaganza, I now only have to put all the sheets together and put it up on the wall. I’ll do a final post when that happens.

See the others here.

Crashman completed

30 05 2012

I did the last two megaman panels together and recently finished Crashman (the 8th panel) and have yet to complete Airman (only the white is left which is the least fun color cause nothing happens!)

See the others here.
