Bloodline

Bloodline is a new Netflix original that follows the Rayburn family. The Rayburns are a prominent family of their Florida Keys community. When the black sheep of the family (Danny) returns home for the 45th anniversary of the Rayburn House, he threatens to disrupt their comfortable life by exposing family secrets. My wife and I watched it over the course of a few days, and I was pulled right into the story. The cast of characters is fantastic, and the story is gripping.

Star Wars Saga in Digital Formats

I’ll never understand why it took this long to release Star Wars digitally, but it looks like the wait is finally over. Tomorrow, it will be released on all the major digital video stores. Along with the movies, there are a host of special features. There are some never-before-seen special extras that each movie is including. They range from conversations from key contributors to special in-depth looks at various parts of the movie. The downside to this release: all are special edition versions.

The Great Discontent Magazine, Issue 1

The Great Discontent is one of my absolute favorite web publications. Their interviews with creative people from all over the web can often be inspiring, entertaining, touching, and even funny. The site is quite beautiful and features some excellent photography. (I love the site so much that I was inspired to begin conducting some interviews of my own a while back.) And…

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore

I’ve been on a bit of a reading kick lately. First was the Shady Characters book I mentioned here the other day, then Cloud Atlas (an incredible story, in my opinion), and now I’m making my way through Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. Mr. Penumbra’s tells the story about a young web designer who loses his job thanks to the recession of the…

The Roku has been a long-time favorite of those who the AppleTV just doesn’t cut it. Tonight, the Roku 3 was announced. With a new UI and a new chipset behind it, the Roku 3 is much faster than previous version. The new remote has a headphone jack in it, which is (quite frankly) amazing. I don’t understand why I haven’t seen…
