We started saving the shows and movies we really like, as TV is going downhill fast.
I am so sick of Reality shows. I really don't care what the heck the Kadashian girls do.

Last night I watched another Netflix doc entitled, "Ingredients." Since I have gradually been won over back to fresh food and away from the processed and boxed "convenience foods" I was brought up on, this film was preaching to a choir member. "Ingredients" is a confirmation of this "new" way of cooking and eating. I didn't realize how important the fresh-food/slow-food movement is especially in the Northwest states -- Oregon and Washington -- but also upper NY state. I'm hoping the tide has turned and that there is hope for our overweight younger generation. As I have read in Charlie's posts here on DC, "You are what you eat."

Last night Glenn and I watched Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud. It was a very, very powerful film and, I recommend, you be in a positive frame of mind to view it.

It was...sad and good.

Caught the end of Cleopatra w/ Claudette Colbert (1946?).

Story has it, C. Colbert didn't want to do the film because of her fear of snakes (final scene). So, Cecille B. DeMille tried to scare her by wrapping a huge snake around himself. She did the film, but notice the tiny rubber-like looking (fake?) asp at the end. lol

Fabulous costumes!

I thought that clip looked older than '40s, so I googled it. The film was made in 1934.

Okay This is my short review for the NEW ICE T Documentary

Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap.

The documentary recently showed up on the Palladia TV network and I watched it.

The documentary has loads of interviews with a lot of rappers, BUTTT mainly the old stars which to me was the only downside to the whole thing. Interviews went into the process the rappers used when creating their raps, how they got into rap, etc...

All the interviews were great. They were informative and engaging at times.

On the TV broadcast of the thing a lot of bleeping at times went on.

I will give this documentary 3.5 out of five stars.
