We have finally cut the cable cord. A friend recently bought us Roku and we didn’t really know what it was. But he installed it and now it has changed everything. We can stream videos, movies from all kinds of places like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vevo, HBO GO.
We are not part of the early adapters on this, but we are catching up.
Didn’t even see Despicable Me 2, but this song and video are excellent. Take a look and listen. Happiness…is it a choice?
Looking is a new series on HBO. It centers on 3 gay friends living in San Francisco. Only one episode has aired, but it shows the next step in telling stories about gay men in 2014. It’s frank, honest, and contemporary.
Discovered this photographer through images of a dancer from Sleep No More. Incredible work by this artist. Love it when movement is captured.

The Musée d’Orsay is an exceptional museum in Paris on the left bank of the Seine river. The collection has masterworks of many of the most revered French impressionists and post-impressionists: Degas, Manet, Monet, Cézanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, Seurat, and more. It is housed in a former railway station. Incredible.
