    Cars 2. What is your least favorite Pixar film? I think it’s this one for me (yes, even over The Good Dinosaur)

    Suits. My wife and I watched it for no particular reason . We liked it. It was good, not great but still enjoyable. We then stopped watching for no particular reason and I don’t have any feelings about it one way or the other. Anyone have feelings for Suits?

    50 shades of Grey published. If you were to have around 1/2 hour to 1 hour to read something, and you knew you would have no memory of reading it, what would you read? For me that was not just a philosophical question to probe the nature of memory, it was a real question for me as I was going to undgor sinus surgery and the previous time I underwent that procedure I haD this very vivid memory of walking into the hospital and then the next thing I knew I was in a recovery bed. No memory of writing on forms, or talking with the doctor, or waiting around, just walking in and then poof – there I was in a bed. Short term amnesia is a common enough side effect of the anesthesia but man was it weird. It was the most sci-fi experience I’ve ever had in my life. So the SECOND time I got to thinking I should read something by Philip K. Dick (and make notes for my future-self to read) but INSTEAD I decided to go with the Twilight Option because I really liked the idea of being able to say I had it deleted from my brain. But, turns out that the universe is an ironist as the second time I only lost around 3-5 minutes of memory. I remember walking into the hospital, I remember checking in, and I remember reading Twilight for over an hour. I wasn’t in a PKD story, I was in a lovecraft story. That which was learned cannot be unlearned …
    Also, power differential relationships are highly attracted to segments of the population.

    Ocarina of time 3-D. What is your favorite remake of all time and why?

    Sonic appears in all three segments. To the best of my memory this is indeed the first time such a thing has happened in #thirtytwentyten . Anyone remember another time when that happened?

  2. If you are interested in a great experience for American Gods, I cannot recommend higher the 10th Anniversary Full Cast Audiobook. It feels like an excellent radio play. I was able to listen through the Hoopla app thanks to my library.
