Sunday Night Open Thread

Been a rough weekend. First, I ended up being 200 miles from where I expected to be on Saturday. Then, that night, I think I broke my mother’s computer. I was adding a second hard drive, but now the fan won’t run and it’s overheating. And, replacing a fan on a Mac Mini isn’t an easy task. Macs are not as easy to work on as other devices, although I have usually had success doing it.

Anyway, that long day and long night made for a bad day. So, I want to watch a movie. How about the movie that took top prize at the Academy Awards? The first Academy Awards. And, no, I’m not talking about Wings. Yes, Wings won the Outstanding Picture award (today it’s called Best Picture), but that first year, they had two top awards. They did away with one of them the second year, and declared that the award Wings won was what is now Best Picture.

That other film? Well, the award for Best Unique and Artistic Picture went to Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. It’s a love triangle. Amazon’s description is “A seductive woman ffom the city entrances a farmer, who then devises a plan to murder his wife.”

Well, that’s certainly not the feel good movie of the year. Oh, well. Maybe I’ll watch it anyway. Because I like old movies.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Ever tap a Coke that’s been shaken? You know, to stop it from spewing all over the place? It works. But do you know why? (Spoiler: I knew.)

[The YouTube]

Yeah, I ran a rather unscientific test on that a while back, and came to the same conclusion.

Do we need to send the Marines to get that state back? Or build a wall around it?

Huddie William Ledbetter. Lead Belly. Some write it as Ledbelly. He wrote it as Lead Belly. And, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, the same year as the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Bob Dylan.

I was never a fan of Nirvana. But, I learned to tolerate some of their songs.
